Build your own basement, hide inside to avoid danger, store food to preserve it, and never forget to take a light source to find a way out in the endless darkness.
The default basement crafting recipe can be prototyped with an Alchemy Engine in the Science Tab.
Basements can be managed from inside by using the special Basement Tab (see last image).
Pros and Cons of Basements:
Endless darkness– Careless survivor without a light source will be an easy prey for Charlie, even if it’s daytime.
– Plant grow rate is considerably lowered.
Weatherproof– No rain. Is that some sort of catcoon heaven?
– No moon. It may prevent someone from turning into a woodthirsty monster.
Cool temperature– Any container slows down spoilage but doesn’t prevent melting.
– Survivors feel a bit cooler than outside.
