Some items' or groups' chance to drop changes according to the player's gamestage. Here you can see those values for any gamestage you want using the little box below.

This article compares the cost of the most frequently used materials used by player when building a base or fort. This list can help players decide which building material is most cost effective. It does not list all Building Materials.

Calculation[edit | edit source]

The values in the list where calculated assuming the following:

  • All block types are fully upgraded. E.g. it does not list wood frames, only metal reinforced wood.
  • If there is more than one way to craft an item, the cheapest version is used.
  • The costs for a block do not include any forging fuels.
  • All forms of iron are listed as a number of units of iron. For example, one Forged Iron costs 10 units of iron, or upgrading a reinforced wooden wall to it's metal counterpart costs 10 units of iron.
  • Costs listed are for 100 blocks. To help put this in perspective, a 7x7x4 bunker with no roof requires 96 blocks.
