Survivalist: Invisible Strain - Construction Guide

Written by Red riding hood the third   /   Jun 17, 2020    


A list of buildings and how to construct them...

How to Start Building Your Own Base



  • Get construction level 2.
  • Acquire a backpack, one toolbox and 1 wood.
  • Equip the toolbox and build the wooden chest.
  • Place materials in your storage. Your builder will automatically use them for construction.
  • Build a shack for sleeping, campfire for warmth and outhouse for hygiene.
  • Build a wall. This is the difficult and long part. Zombies and raiders will occasionally drop by towards your base and attack your builders.
  • Once you have construction level 3 get a shovel and build a well for infinite water.
  • Now you have a complete base with all essential buildings.

Advanced Construction



Cement



Get construction level 3 and build a charcoal kiln.

To craft cement you need stone and water. Have a well nearby and stone supply.

Building with cement needs water too. Either have a well nearby or use a bucket to reduce walking.

Consider using wooden fences as temporary safety. Cement takes the longest to construct with.

Chicken Wire



Get construction level 4 and build a forge.

To craft wire you need charcoal and steel. Have steel or coal sources nearby for less walking.

You can setup wire fences relatively fast and it doesn't burn.
