How to properly use the research table in Raft
How do you build the table? To build a research table, all you need are wooden planks and scrap metal. Here is the prescription:
- 14x wooden planks
- scrap 2x
You must place your table in the center of your raft, not on the edge. Just as a precaution, so Bruce Shark doesn’t bite him off the edge of your raft.
Personal tip: There is no search function in the creation menu, the table and many other stations can be found under “Other”.
How is the research table used for recipes? You really can’t do much wrong using the table: you place a raw material, for example, wooden planks, on the table and click “explore”. The research table will now automatically show you all recipes that contain wooden planks. Those are all items that require wood planks as a building material. You can also see what resources you still need to research to unlock the crafting recipe. Once you’ve researched all the resources for the recipe, simply click on the item in the list on the right and select “learn”.
How can you research blueprints? Just like tools, weapons, etc., you can also learn blueprints. During the story, you will receive a receiver and an antenna in the form of a plane. Simply place them on the research table on your raft and click research. You will have unlocked these items without any resources.
