How to Get Grass Planks

Grass Planks are a resource obtained from chopping Grass with an axe. The first axe you’ll likely make is a Pebblet Axe. When you chop down a blade of grass it’ll collapse into wood plank-like material. If you pick up grass planks, you’ll be required to hold them on your shoulder until you either drop them or use them. This will prevent you from being able to use any other tools.

Grass planks can be used to make all sorts of items for your base.

How to Get Sprigs

Sprigs are a medium-sized two leafed plant found in abundance in the yard. You can grab them from the ground without the use of any tool.

Sprigs are a very common resource.

How to Get Sap

Sap is a sticky yellow goo that can be found all over branches, particularly around Oak Hill. You can also find lots of sap on the shelves in the Oak Lab.

Once you possess a hammer you can also obtain them from large globs of Sap. And later on, you could even make a Sap Catcher to collect sap from the comfort of your base!

Sap can be found in the Oak Lab as well as out in the open.
