These Are The Steps to Build a Raft on Stranded Deep
Let us put you through the 4 simple steps you need to build a personalized raft in this survival game;
Step 1: Create A Raft Base
Yep, the very first thing you must do while creating a raft here is ‘crafting a base’. There are a few ways along with materials for crafting your base but we will show you our own method with different materials.
For Tyre Raft Base: You need 2x Tyre and 1x Lashing
For Buoy Raft Base: 5x Buoy Ball and 1x Lashing
For Wood Raft Base: You need 14x Stick and 1x Lashing
Barrel Raft Base crafting: For Barrel Raft Base you need 3x Barrel and 1x Lashing.
Like you’ve seen there. Players have the freedom to combine the lashing with one of the available options to craft a raft base which is the first step. Your option and choice of material for craft base is solely dependent on the material at hand. So, design with what you have then.
Step 2: Design The Raft Floor
Now that you’ve gotten the base right, it is time to get a for which lies on top of the base. Just like the base, floor can be crafted with up to four materials depending on the one that is handy. Here we go;
Driftwood Raft Floor: materials and quantity needed are as follows; 4x Stick.
Plank Raft Floor: 2x Plank
Corrugated Raft Base: 2x Corrugated Steel
Clay Raft Base: 2x Clay Brick
For the purpose of long journey, we recommend brick and steel floor as they tend to last longer than other materials used. Corrugated steel and scrap are much harder to find because you need to build a Brick Station and a furnace, which lets you make bricks out of clay – and that can be a lot stressful. Meanwhile, Corrugated steel and scrap can be found in islands and crates.
Step 3: Accessories and Styling
Now that you’ve successfully crafted the main areas, it is time to make the raft sailable with some controls like the move, stop, and steering functions. Below are the materials you need and their respective quantities.
Boat Motor: You need; 1x Duct Tape, 1x Engine Part, 1x Fuel Part, 1x Filter Part, 1x Electrical Part.
Sail: 1x Lashing, 1x Cloth, 2x Stick.
Rudder: 1x Lashing, 1x Cloth, 2x Stick.
Anchor: 4x Lashing, 1x Stick, 6x Rock.
Wondering where to find all these accessories? Locate them inside loot crates found inside underwater and bases. Meanwhile, if you can’t find these parts, then you should go for the sail but expect a slower movement as a result.
Step 4: Get Raft Ready To Sail
Now that you successfully created Raft in Stranded Deep, it is time to sail. Now, “L2″/”LT” on consoles or “RMB” on PC to drag the raft into the water and the journey begins.
Benefits of Raft in Stranded Deep
Haven created this raft, of what benefits is it to users? The main benefit of the raft in Stranded Deep is that it can be visually customized, updated with materials, expanded in size, and can hold crates for the transportation of items for far and short distances.
