How do you upgrade your walls?

10 posts in this topic

I see on the scroll wheel an option to upgrade.  What do I need to do to upgrade the wall?  Build another wall kit or what?

You need to get 4 metal boards and 2 metal poles, go to a fire and workbench and click on the metal poles and click craft upgrade, then go to the wall and upgrade it.

So you don't need to remove the wall to upgrade it?  My fear was that upgrading a door or gate, you would lose your lock.  It would be nice if you would remove a lock from a door, move the door as you are building/upgrading your base, and then put the lock back on.  As it stands now, if you move a door with a lock on it, you lose the lock, which isn't cheap.

I second that. Having the option to remove a lock and get it back in your inventory would be nice.

Hi,

Yes if you move it you lose the lock, but as far as I can remember upgrading it doesn't, my lock did go however as when I upgraded it the metal was facing inwards so I replaced the door and lost the lock then.

Lets not mention the fun you have trying to get the re-enforcement on the actual outter side of the wall.

I've found myself spinning the wall around up to three times to get the re-enforcement on the outter side of the wall.

 

Even if I go on the other side of the wall thinking that it will re-enforce the side you are at.. It doesn't make a difference.

The walls obviously have one side that re-enforce statically and you don't actually know which side that will be.

 

My suggestion is to darken the yellow side of the wall that will be the re-enforced side so you know which side it will be when placing the wall.

A quick note on which side of the fortified door should go outwards : it doesn't matter.

Inside, outside it's the same; Invulnerable.

Cheers
