Description
Added in
v0.69
Obtained through
Using old pot on a fire


Stews are a cooking system that was added to the game in v0.69. The system is very limited at this stage, it appears that will be heavily updated in future patches to allow temporary benefits for players.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

To make a stew, you require an old pot. Place the old pot on a lit fire, you can then start adding ingredients. It will start a 30s cooking period after which stew will be ready to eat, providing hydration, fullness, and other benefits depending on the recipe. Can remain on the fire up to 10 minutes.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

The following items can be added as to the pot to create stews:

Recipes[edit | edit source]

Whilst it is unknown if there are recipes that provide more benefits than others, the developers stated this:

  • A lizard stew with mushroom for example will give an energy boost whilst also filling your stomach.

It is most likely that stews are based on what you add. For example, blueberries will provide hydration, meat will provide the most fullness and good nutrition, etc.

Testing required[edit | edit source]

These are tests that will help provide the community with a better insight into what stews do, they require testing:

  • Does adding aloe cure sickness and infection?
  • Can adding more than one meat cause overeating, more good nutrition points etc, or is it limited to one meat?
  • Can Jack Mushrooms and Amanita Mushrooms make the player sick when placed in a stew?
  • Can spoiled meats cause sickness?
  • Do arms, legs and heads cause sanity to lower?

Update history[edit | edit source]

Version Changes
v0.70 (Multiplayer) Fixed adding ingredients to a stew as client not updating cooking time for all players

It is now possible to gain specific bonus when cooking a stew with various ingredient combinations Fixed stew being usable from distance when it completes if not targeting it

v0.69 The cooking pot can now cook stews, making it possible to combine meat, mushrooms and berries or any combination. Each food item has it’s plus and minuses and so experimenting with the best recipes is encouraged. A lizard stew with mushroom for example will give an energy boost whilst also filling your stomach.

It is now possible to cook a stew with the cooking pot ! After adding the pot filled with water on a fire, add a choice of 20 ingredients (8 meats, 6 mushrooms, 4 herbs and 1 berry and oysters), it will start a 30s cooking period after which stew will be ready to eat, providing hydration, fullness and other benefits based on recipe. Can remain on the fire up to 10 minutes. Note, you can also add ingredients to pot without water, however this will not provide hydration and will burn food extremely fast.
