Gameplay [ edit | edit source ]
Old Pots can be used to collect, carry, and drink clear water and can also be used for Sap Collectors. It works in a very similar way to the waterskin but also allows you to collect rain water and boil polluted water.
Usage [ edit | edit source ]
The old pot is a complicated item, it has many uses:
Collecting Clean Water [ edit | edit source ]
The player must have built a water collector first and it must have some water already collected from rain. The player then must press the ‘C’ key to fill the old pot from the water collector. This functions exactly the same way as Waterskins do.
Collecting Polluted Water [ edit | edit source ]
Red spots on the The Forest Map indicate all the areas where water can be collected from.
Approach an appropriate water source with the old pot equipped, move around until you see an E, hold down the E key and the player will perform an animation where they collect the water.
Boiling Dirty Water [ edit | edit source ]
The player must use either a Basic Fire or a Fire Pit to be able to boil the water. Once the player has one of these fires and has lit it, the player must equip the pot and press ‘C’ on the fire. It will place the pot on the fire and boil. It takes about 30 seconds for the water to convert to clean water. It has a one time use and it will replenish all thirst.
The boiled water cannot be stored and carried. Though it can be transferred to the Waterskin.
Collecting Rain Water Trick [ edit | edit source ]
Collecting rain water is currently bugged and does not work properly though there is a way to use the rain to convert polluted water into clean water.
- The player must have collected polluted water in the old pot
- When it is raining, equip the old pot
- Keep the old pot out for 28 consecutive seconds
- The polluted water will now be converted into clean water, that can be drunk straight from the inventory as if it was collected from a Water Collector
Stews [ edit | edit source ]
The pot is required to create stews, more information can be found on the stew page.
