Overview:

Farming can be a safe, effective way to generate food but consumes fresh water. It also requires the player to return to the farm about every 36 in-game hours, limiting exploration activities. Even without rain, dedicated tropical fruit farming will generally return as much fresh water to the player as was consumed during the plant growing process. This is because Quwawa and Kura Fruits provide 1 water and 2 food bars upon consumption.

Farm Plot Construction:

Craft a Crude Hoe using the following materials:

- Wood Stick x2

- Stone Tool x1

- Lashing x1

With Hoe in hand, a Farm Plot can be constructed with the following materials:

- Plank Scrap x2, or

- Corrugated Scrap x2, or

- Wood Stick x4 and Lashing x1

When placing, plots can overlap with rocks and vegetation, but not Palm Trees or player built structures. They can be placed on sand or dirt.

Planting, Watering and Harvesting:

The Hoe is needed for plot construction only, not farm maintenance.

Take an Aloe Vera, Quwawa or Kura Fruit in hand and mouse over the Farm Plot. Left Click to plant. Spoiled fruit can be used.

A sapling will appear in the plot. This will mature over about 48 in-game hours and produce a single fruit among it's leaves. Left click to collect the fruit. The plant will then commence another growth cycle, allowing continual harvests.

A newly constructed plot will contain 1 "water charge". It will evaporate in around 24 in-game hours. The player cannot add more water charges to the newly built plot, unless there is a plant in it.

If no charges are left, the plant will die after a short time. Usually, the fruit used to create the plant is returned to the player.

To water the plot, take a Coconut Flask, Water Skin or Clay Water Bottle in hand (Drinkable Coconuts cannot be used). Mouse over the plot and left click. One serving is removed from the bottle to refill 1 "water charge" within the plot.

Thus, resource efficient farming entails watering the plot when only one "water charge" remains.

Rain, when it occurs, can fully water the plot.
