Many gamers like crafting items from scraps or drops from monsters, other players, loot crates, and a variety of other sources, but occasionally it could be unclear what materials we need for a specific piece of armor or weapon. And occasionally we’re unaware that those drops might be the thing that saves our lives, So today we’re going to walk you through the recipes and goods that may be crafted in DayZ.
DayZ: Stick & Stones Plus Fire!
In DayZ, you must be resourceful and gather as much as you can from everywhere you can loot from or anything you observe on the ground. Here are some items you can make when traveling.
A Stone Knife can be made from 2 stones together; quite primitive, huh? Hey, it might just save your life (at the least.)
Another amazing tiny blade you can craft is a Bone Knife by combining several bones together. This is a typical beginner’s knife, but if you pair it with a long stick, it becomes a Spear. (Stones may also be utilized.)
Stones can be found on highways and railways or mined with a pickaxe (Minecraft is technically what comes to mind lol.)
If you have any worn-out clothes in your backpack, you might as well make one of them into rags. Keep in mind that while using a knife on clothing will yield Rags, doing so on a raincoat will yield colorful armbands, the color of which will depend on the raincoat’s color, and you will receive multiple armbands each time.
The rags can also be applied as bandages, and disinfectants can be added to stop infections.
You can make a rope out of a stack of six rags by stacking them with another stack of six.
Next, we’ll discuss how to build a fireplace. A fireplace can be built in three steps, the first of which is to build a simple campfire out of sticks and a variety of other materials, such as bandages, paper, bark, or rags.
You are able to create a fireplace with each one. Find sticks by either walking up to a bush and using your hands to cut it down, preferably with a hatchet or knife, or by taking a stick and splitting it in half with a knife.
You can create a fireplace and set it down anywhere you want to light however this has to be outside and making a fireplace like this inside will never be able to be ignited.
But if you don’t have matches or a lighter, you can use a knife to scrape off bark from a tree, mix that bark with a stick to create a hand drill, then simply go up to the fire and light it.
Then there is the second stage, where you may enhance the aesthetics by adding eight stones. This does not increase the functionality of the fire at all; it simply extends its duration. However, it looks incredibly cool.
The best enhancement, though, is turning a fireplace into an oven so you can cook with pots and pans while still blocking some of the light the fire creates.
Add 16 stones to the fire, then use the action button to build it.
Here’s how to cook meat quickly on the road if you don’t have the time or resources for any of the setups suggested so far. To make a sharpened stick, you can simply combine a long stick and a knife, however any object with the ability to cut will work as well.
This sharpened stick can be used to prepare any meat, including chicken, fish, and so on, in addition to being a low-tier weapon.
Additionally, the most convenient way to prepare any meat or meal while on the go is to combine a tripod with a fire to which you can attach a cooking pot. (You can find these items around the map.)
However, combining a gas canister and a gas burner can create a way to cook food on top if you’re on the run and want something faster. Just wanted to let you know that because gas canisters have a limited supply, they naturally don’t last very long.
Crafting a Fishing Rod
Some of us are finding it difficult to hunt deer and rabbits in this game, while the majority of us just go fishing because all you have to do is wait till the fish takes the hook and you can start reeling it in to get some food.
To make a fishing rod, pick a long stick from a bush and combine it with some rope. Next, use a knife to combine some bones to make a bone hook. Finally, attach the bone hook to the improvised rod, and you have a working fishing rod.
However, until you add bait, your catch rate will be off. To find bait, use a knife, shovel, pickaxe, or other tool to dig up worms on the ground.
The worms should work well with any hook you have after you combine them. Simply interact while standing on the edge of some water. Just as an additional piece of information, you can also find a fishing rod and a hook everywhere across the map.
Crafting a Backpack
Whether you want to carry everything you find while traveling, using a burlap sack and a rope will create a backpack with 30 slots that can be expanded to 42 slots by adding three sticks.
The burlap sack can be found around farms, sheds, and industrial areas.
The leather bag, though, which calls for two pieces of tanned leather, is what I particularly prefer. Killing larger animals for their fur can provide you with leather, which you can then turn into tanned leather by combining the fur with garden lime.
After completing those stages, just use a leather stitching kit to create a single leather bag from the tanned leather. This bag really looks much better and has more slots than a typical burlap bag.
Time To Gear Up! Crafting Weapons, Attachments, and Bombs
It’s time to kill some zombies! To arm yourself against the horde, though, you must first make your own weapons. If you already own a pistol or a rifle, you might want to think about making your own suppressor. You can do this by using duct tape and a plastic bottle to make an improvised suppressor that can be fitted to most guns, but the caliber will determine how effective it is.
A saw can also be used in combination with the BK18, Molson, Double Barrel Shotgun, and Revolver to cut off the longer barrels. In addition to fitting inside backpacks and having much smaller inventory, this can also result in some pretty incredibly lethal short-range weapons.
We all know that bombs create a lot of noise, but there are occasions when they may be rather handy, especially if there is a lot of loot behind a locked safe or a door that requires a bomb to open it. To create an improvised bomb, you must first combine an electrical repair kit with a protective case. A battery can be created by combining a detonator with a screwdriver.
You can also use melee weapons to make things simple and practical too. A baseball bat made of nails will add cut damage to the majority of targets it strikes. You can also take a baseball bat and combine it with barbed wire this makes a barbed baseball bat.
If you’re a sneaky kind of gamer, you may also make your own Ghillie Suit out of netting and burlap strips. To get the burlap strips, simply cut any burlap sack you come across with a knife.
And by the netting you can find these around boats, industrial sites, fishing villages and so on. And then combine it to create different pieces of the suit. (You can also refer to the images as shown above.)
I know that some of us set traps to catch prey and occasionally to deal with intruders who may be close to our territory. As a result, we will also provide instructions on creating traps for this one.
You can combine two sticks and a metal wire to make a tripwire. Then, click “Place” to see where you may put it; when it turns white, you can set it down. When an empty slot appears, insert your improvised explosive device into it.
You can use a trap known as a snare to catch rabbits and chickens. A metal wire and a stick must be combined, and similar to a tripwire, you must then add your bait—worms to draw chickens and fruits to draw rabbits—to draw in the prey.
There’s No Place Like Home – Building a Shelter
We also grow exhausted after all of the zombie fighting, food hunting, and resource plundering, so it’s time for us to go home and relax. Therefore, the first step in constructing any of the various shelters is to choose the location.
When the area is highlighted in solid white, you can set the shelter down. To begin, you will need four short sticks and a rope. For a stick shelter, you’ll also need 50 sticks, and for a leather shelter, you’ll need a tanned leather and four long sticks. (You can also refer to the image above)
Building a Garden
We also need to be resourceful by either collecting seeds from edible plants or fruits or by starting our own gardens to provide us with the greens we need on a daily basis.
So to begin, you’ll need a hoe, pickaxe, or a shovel. Aim it at the ground, choose the locations for the garden to be created, then plant your seeds there. Once they are planted, you should also provide water and, if possible, fertilizer to hasten their growth. This fertilizer is referred to as “green lime.”
You’ll have a lovely edible garden in 20 to 50 minutes; just be sure to pick the produce when it’s ripe to avoid it going bad. Any fruit or vegetable you find can have its seeds removed by cutting it with a knife. You can also locate seeds in farms and greenhouses. Having a garden means you can essentially just keep planting food and waiting until you have an endless supply of it whenever you need it.

Mindustry – Resource Flowchart
The Factory must grow!
The one thing that you should always be doing in Mindustry is to make sure that the factory expands along with your defenses, and to manage your defenses you’re going to need resources, and to get resources you need sophisticated machinery, and to make machines, well. You get the point. The problem is, how do you do all this in an efficient manner? That’s where a flowchart comes in! Do not be afraid as we will explain how everything works from the most basic material to the most elaborate builds so you no longer have to worry which socket connects to where!
Resource Flowchart for Mindustry
Since the game is all about automation and using your imagination it can get quite overwhelming at times, especially if you look at all the lines in the chart provided below. Don’t worry though as a flowchart just shows the step by step process of a sequential order.
One user from Steam was big-brained enough to make a flowchart of their own to make things a lot easier for everybody else who are either starting out or looking for a more efficient build.
As you can see from the image provided above your industry starts with your drills. You can have your drills gather products or resources like scrap which gives you the option to send that scrap to your Pulverizers or your Melters.
If you look again your scrap will produce a by-product called Slag, and that goes to another machine called a Separator.
Everything is highlighted in the flowchart, Extractors and Pumps are colored green and stand on their own, while the crafting machines are shown in orange. All of the end products are either transported to feed your defenses or go to a container block somewhere for future use.
Remember to use an Unloader if you ever plan to move the items in the container elsewhere!
At the start you may not feel the need to rely on a flowchart as you will be occupied by trying to wrap your head around the basics. But as everything grows so will the need to keep things simple and running.
