The Log Sled is a moveable storage structure that was added to the game in v0.07.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Log Sled can be used to store and transport logs , rocks , sticks and bodies. The Log Sled is immune to almost everything in the game, it is immune to cannibals, mutants, physical attacks, explosives and possibly more. If you wish to remove a log sled, you can use the Hole Cutter.

The log sled can carry the following items and their amount:

To place sticks or rocks onto the sled, press 'R' on the icon until you find the desired item, then press 'C'. To pick something up, press 'E'. The log sled can be pushed by pressing and holding 'E' for a second. To place logs or a corpse, have the item picked up, then press 'C' on the log sled. To pick something up, press 'E'. The sled can be pushed by pressing and holding 'E' for a second.

Known Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • When positioned awkwardly, and equipped/pushed, the log sled will glitch, and show the player's hand still holding whatever tool was previously equipped. If an attempt is made to let go of the sled, you will promptly fall through the map.
  • Sometimes it will not show you can let go, making it almost impossible to get rid of it. When you come back from saving and exiting, the log sled will be gone.
  • When opening a saved game, it is possible that the sled will spawn in the air some ways from its original location, and fall.
  • Occasionally entering or exiting caves may cause some sleds to disappear.
  • The sled doesn't fit through doors, but if the player tries to equip it from the other side of the door then he and the sled might be catapulted into the air allowing him to "hop the fence" with the sled and thus free it in case the sled has been walled in without the need to destroy a wall (experienced in version 0.19).
  • Placing a body in the sled causes it to flip upside down and shake vigorously, when you grab the sled it will shoot you up in the air and continue to, until you let go and fall to your death or aim for a water source.
  • If constructed in multiplayer, it will created a sled for each player that can be maneuvered for log teleportation/infinite logs.
  • Sometimes you can not pick up logs from the Log Sled in multiplayer.
  • If you transferred a SP/MP save to MP/SP, most sleds will not work. (you cannot control them anyways)
