Description[edit | edit source]

Upgrading is the expression used when a particular block is improved upon to make it stronger. This is accomplished with the use of a compatible tool, in addition to a suitable upgrade material. There are a few different blocks available with the capacity for upgrades. However, all will require various upgrade materials to progress along their upgrade path.

Upgrading is carried out in the same fashion, although the upgrade materials used in the process will differ.

Tool[edit source]

The following tools can be used to upgrade and repair Upgrading.

Tool Durability Type Repair Amount Range Speed Efficiency Repaired with

Upgrade Process[edit | edit source]

Flowchart indicating the upgrade path of all base building blocks. Arrows indicate whether a block can be upgraded, downgraded or destroyed.
Flowchart indicating the upgrade path of all base building blocks and the resource cost for upgrading them.

The chosen tool is equipped and the materials are left in the inventory or Tool Belt. Right-click on the block with the chosen tool (an icon will appear showing the current upgrade status).

  • The percentage shown will increase 25% each time the Stone Axe is used (requiring four uses for a complete upgrade).
  • The percentage shown will increase 50% each time the Wrench is used (requiring three uses for a complete upgrade).
  • The Claw Hammer performs an instant upgrade, with no increasing intervals.
  • The Nailgun performs an instant upgrade, with no increasing intervals.
  • The upgrade materials used will not be taken from the player inventory until the upgrade is complete.
