Craftable Items and Structures[edit | edit source]
The following items and structures can be crafted from the Science Tab:
Console Editions Only
Prototyping[edit | edit source]
Generally, each Item or Structure must be "prototyped", or unlocked, at a particular crafting station. Once the item has been unlocked, it can be crafted anywhere, anytime (so long as the required materials are available). Tier 1 items can be unlocked at either a Science Machine or Alchemy Engine. Tier 2 items can only be unlocked at an Alchemy Engine.
Whenever an item is unlocked, the player's Sanity will be restored by 15 points. This is only when prototyping the item and not during subsequent construction of that item. With 93 craftable items in the game, as of the Strange New Powers update, that's 1,395 sanity to be gained; 600 of which is available via the Science Machine alone. Therefore, a very simple tactic for healing sanity is to hold off on prototyping new items until you need the sanity.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the early beta of Don't Starve, the game used a 'Research points' system instead of prototyping.
- Before that, Gold Nuggets were used to directly buy recipes.
