How To Build in Enshrouded?

Building a base is an essential part of playing Enshrouded. Your house is where you rest, process materials, and make weapons. You’ll need to build shelters around certain NPCs, such as the Carpenter, before you can craft specific items. That’s why one of the game’s first quests is to build a base.

To start, you’ll need to craft a Flame Altar. This is an item that creates a protected zone where you can build your base. You’ll need five stones to make a Flame Altar, which you can create in the manual crafting menu under “essentials.” Once you’ve made it, you can place it on the ground by putting it in your hotbar.

Next, you’ll need to make a WorkbenchYou can craft one at the Workbench using three strings and eight wood logs. Once you’ve made it, you can, again, place it on the ground by putting it in your hotbar.

Now that you’ve placed your Flame Altar and Workbench, you’ll need to make a Construction Hammer. You can craft it at the Workbench using one stone.

Before you can start building, you’ll need to craft some Building Blocks. Enshrouded requires players to convert raw materials into blocks before they can be placed as buildings. You can craft these at the Workbench. For example, you can convert two stones into 100 Rough Stone Blocks. You’ll need to use the same method to craft Roof Blocks.

To start building, equip your hammer and press the “Tab” key to enter the building menu. From here, you can cycle through different building shapes using “ALT + scroll” and different materials using “CTRL + scroll”. You can also rotate build pieces by pressing “R” or delete building sections using “right-click”.

You can toggle “snapping” on or off. If you want pieces to align easily and look neat, keep snapping on. If you want to create more complicated buildings, you can turn off snapping, giving you greater flexibility in where you can place build pieces and allowing you to merge structures into one another.

We recommend starting your building project by placing some foundation blocks. This will provide a flat base layer and help you map out the design of your base.

To create fine details on your buildings, you can also place blocks individually. To do this, cycle up to the highest tab in the building menu and select a 1×1 single wall block. Alternatively, you can put your chosen Building Block in your hotbar and then use the block to place a 1×1 brick. Remember, you can also use the building system to delete individual blocks using “right-click”.
