Scrap Mechanic is a sandbox game developed by Axolot Games. The map can be random for all players, but the items and resources you need to survive can be a little hard to find.
There are too many resources that you can create and you need to find them in the open world to unlock new items. Some of these resources are cotton which is used to make outfits, corn will provide you with food and water, metal block 2 with high strength.
In this post I will tell you where to find cotton, how to use corn in the game and how to get metal block 2 and coal.
Scrap Mechanic Cotton
While playing the game in the open world, you will find different environments in different parts of the map. You need to find an environment with autumn weather, which has reddish or orange leaves and the ground will be a little yellowish during the day.
In these places you can find cotton instead of flowers. Just look in this medium and you will find small plants with large white buds as shown in the picture above.
Corn and Milk
At the beginning of the game you can find lots of corn plants and by hitting them with a hammer you will get 3-4 little corn that you can collect. These cobs can be your main source of food and water, because when you feed these cobs to the cows that you will find in the game, you will get milk.
You need to place 3 corns in front of the cow, and after they eat these corns they will give you milk that you can drink and increase your food and a meter of thirst. Milk will quench your thirst more than food, but first you can find many corn plants and use them to store milk.
Ember & Metal Block 2
Smoldering coal is an important resource for the production of metal block 2. Metal block can be obtained by breaking large stones with a drill and then breaking these stones with a hammer. After breaking the stones you need to clean it to get the metal block 1.
At the beginning of the game you can find a lot of burning trees near your ship, you can break these trees using your hammer and it will drop you this fading resource.
