Smalland Crafting and Unlocks Guide - cover

A lot of your time in Smalland will be spend exploring and fighting new creatures. However, many of the materials you find don't have much of a use on their own. In our Smalland Crafting and Unlocks Guide, we'll go over how to turn these crafting materials into something more useful.

How Smalland Crafting Works

Crafting in Smalland is done either via the Crafting tab in the character menu, or via various buildings. To craft items, you need to have the correct items in your inventory, then select the recipe you wish to craft. Recipes you have unlocked can be viewed via the Codex tab in the character menu.

How to Unlock New Crafting Recipes in Smalland

Crafting Recipe unlocks are either tied to placing down new buildings, or obtaining certain materials. When a new recipe is unlocked, a pop-up will appear at the top left part of the screen. For shared materials like Refined Wood or Stone, you'll unlock a bunch of recipes at the same time, while others only unlock 1 or two things.

Buildings can be split into a few main categories:

  • Weapon and Tool Creation - The Workbench, Stonecutter, and Forge are mainly used to make new tools or weapons from different tiers of materials.
  • Material Refining - The Tannery, Loom & Spindle, Windmill, and Furnace all turn materials into new things that can then be used for Weapons, Tools, and Armor.
  • Cooking - The Campfire, Cauldron, and Stone Oven all make progressively better meals to stave off hunger and apply different buffs.

You can also make an Apothecary Table, which unlocks various handy potions to restore health or increases resistances.
