How to save your game Sons of the Forest by building a shelter?
To construct a shelter, you’ll require the following materials:
- 1 reflective tarp
- 1 stick
At the start of the game, when you scavenge the containers at the helicopter crash site, you’ll find a reflective tarp in one of them. After acquiring the tarp, search for a stick on the ground. Once you’ve descended to a lower altitude and left the snowy starter area, you’ll notice an abundance of sticks.
To build a shelter in Sons of the Forest, start by picking up a stick when you come across one. Then, press the “I” key to open your inventory and select or equip the tarp, which is located in the upper right-hand corner of the inventory screen. Hold the tarp in your hand and look for the outline of a square on the ground in front of you. Use the Q and R keys to rotate the square as needed. When you’ve found a suitable location, left-click to place the tarp on the ground.
Next, move close to one corner of the tarp until a white, dotted-line arrow pointing up appears. Left-click again to prop up that corner of the tarp with the stick you picked up earlier. Congratulations, you’ve just built a shelter! You can now save your game and sleep at the shelter by moving close to it and holding the “E” or “Z” key, respectively. You can also prop up the other corners of the shelter with additional sticks, but this is not necessary.
Once you’ve built a shelter, you can save your game anytime you’re near it, and it will appear on your GPS map as a house icon. To move the shelter, simply use your axe to smash the stick, and the tarp will fold itself up, allowing you to add it back to your inventory. This entire process takes only a moment, as demonstrated in the accompanying gif.
