Gathering supplies when first starting can be a little daunting, especially when you don’t any tools, but don’t fear, you will be able to gather both wood and stone fairly easily.

To place map markers, simply open the world map by pressing M on your keyboard. Once you’ve opened your map, simply click one of the five different icons that can be found in the lower right corner. With the icon selected, double click the area on the map that you would like to mark to create a marker that can you then name anything that you like.

Now that you’ve build the foundations to your new base, it’s time to officially call this place home by setting the base as your spawn point for when you reload the world or unfortunately meet your demise.

Thankfully, creating a a spawn point is easy as all you will need to do is simply craft a bed and a campfire. Once you’ve built and placed both of these items within your base, sleep in the bed to create a brand new spawn point. Unfortunately you can only have one spawn point at this current time, so if you’ve got multiple bases set up, be sure to pick wisely. Furthermore, the bed will also act a great way to skip the rather grueling and dark nights. Read from source….
