Wood

Wood from trees or other fibrous plants. Useful for building structures and weapons. It is a good fuel for campfires and generators, and can be refined into chemfuel. In a pinch, a piece of wood can be used as a weapon or a leg.

Wood is a construction and crafting material vital in the early game.

Acquisition[edit]

Wood can be obtained by harvesting most trees, including plants like the saguaro cacti, using the Chop Wood command. FibercornContent added by the Ideology DLC can also be grown for wood.

Every default scenario, except for Naked Brutality, starts the player with a select amount of wood. Wood is carried by bulk goods traders, trade ships, and faction bases. A single piece of wood is obtained when extracting a peg leg, wooden hand, or wooden foot.

A woodmaker dryadContent added by the Ideology DLC will generate some wood every 2 days.

Plant yield[edit]

The following plants provide the following amounts of wood:

  • Note that peg legs, wooden hands, and wooden feet do not exist in item form and are simply added to the pawn during surgery, consuming the wood in the process. When extracting these parts, you simply get the wood back.

    Deterioration[edit]

    Wood deteriorates very slowly when left outdoors - a rate of 0.25 HP/day. For comparison, a wood log will take 10 full years to deteriorate into nothing, before multipliers like rain. So, for all intents and purposes, you can safely leave wood outside. The only real threat is fire.

    Analysis[edit]

    Wood is a useful material for early walls and furniture. Wood builds are quick to construct, wood itself is usually cheap, and most scenarios start with at least some. In contrast, stone blocks take a bit of work to make, while steel is more valuable early. Later on, you should replace your walls with some sort of stone. Otherwise, a flashstorm or raid could light your entire base on fire.

    In contrast, wood is relatively safe for doors and furniture.

    • Wood doors are the fastest to open until autodoors are available. The fire risk of a wooden door, when surrounded by non-flammable walls and floor, is minimal. For comparison, stone doors take a while to open, and steel doors remain flammable (and slower to open). Using wood for doors can be acceptable into the midgame, and even indefinitely if they are not intended to resist attack.
    • There is no specific need to replace wooden furniture, as furniture is usually safe from attack. Like with doors, furniture in an otherwise nonflammable room is usually safe from fire. Other materials might be selected for their improved availability, durability against drop pods or infestations, and beauty as the colony progresses.

    Colonies in extreme and wood-scarce biomes, like the ice sheet or extreme desert, should conserve wood as much as possible. It should be used for campfire or passive coolers until you can 1. create electric heaters / coolers, or 2. get the necessary clothing to survive. For construction, ruins can be deconstructed for stone/steel, and steel should be used for furniture instead.

    Should your colony be visited by an alphabeaver infestation, watch out! These ravenous genetically-engineered critters will eat every tree on the map if you don't stop them by force! They will not eat wood on the ground or wooden buildings, however.

    As a weapon[edit]

    Wood is the one of worst melee weapons in the game, barely beating out a bottle of beer and a plain, unarmed punch. Even a good-quality eltex staffContent added by the Royalty DLC, which is more of a psycasting tool than a weapon, has higher damage and AP. In most cases, players should at least craft a club, rather than using a log as a weapon. Even swinging a gun or bow as a melee weapon will do only slightly less damage, while still allowing you to shoot as enemies approach.

    However, any weapon is superior to no weapon. If you have no other weapons available, and do not have the supplies or time to spare to create even a club, then equipping a log is better than having a colonist fight entirely unarmed.
