How to craft in Sons of the Forest

The game developers have slightly changed the Sons Of The Forest crafting system to improve working. Now the inventory screen seems to have expanded, and many tweaks have been added. This may seem strange to many beginners. However, there’s no need to worry; our guide will elaborate on how one can craft items in the gameplay. 

To have a basic understanding of crafting, right-click to add material on the Inventory Mat. Hover over the icon “Gear” to find out what you can craft from this item. You need to explore the game world and hunt for various items, and you can craft most materials using the same Inventory Mat.

Later, when you find a 3D Printer in Sons of the Forest, you can also use it to craft more advanced recipes. But you will require Printer ink for its functioning. Once your 3D printer is out of ink, players will have to fill it up again. Players can use the “E” key to operate the printer and the “R” key to choose their items.
