Note, free accounts can only hold one hundred of any specific item.
- It is generally a good idea to keep cooked meat in skillets unless your hunger gets too high because you cannot put meat back in once it is taken out and skillets hold ten meat.
- You might want to keep your bags of items such as cups, flairs, string and weapons because they cannot be re-packaged once opened.
- After climbing to the top of a high tree, it is a good idea to sit down to avoid accidentally pressing the arrow keys and falling to your death
- Combining a battery with water will cause you to receive an electric shock and lose health.
- Combining a knife with a high sharpness level with your empty hand will cause you to cut yourself and lose a sizeable amount of health.
- Combining glass with your empty hand will cause you to cut yourself and lose a sizeable amount of health.
