    How to build in Children of the Forest

    Building in Sons of the Forest has two modes available, one very similar to the previous game and another more free. The first is simpler and more direct. All you need to do is open the Guide by pressing B and holding X to switch modes. Once you have selected the desired building piece, you can rotate it with Q and R, cancel it with R, or place it with a left click. In some buildings it may seem like the logs should be cut in half, but it is not necessary.

    How to build for free in Sons of the Forest

    The second mode available in Sons of the Forest allows players to build without blueprints. Construction is done by placing objects from your hands in the correct place; A diagram will appear on the ground. In the Guide, pressing B will give you a step-by-step guide to all the recipes available in the game.

    An example of this form of construction:

    • Place a log on the ground.
    • Place a second log at the end of the first at a 90-degree angle.
    • Repeat until you have an empty square.
    • Cut the logs in half lengthwise to obtain wooden planks.
    • Place the wooden planks in the empty space.
