To make your life significantly more manageable, we’ve put together a guide to help you seize those essential materials in Smalland without breaking a sweat. So, let’s jump right in, folks!

As a vital early-game resource, flint is crucial for crafting weapons and tools, making it the most basic resource you’ll need. You can find it in any beach biomes; just approach the dark-colored rocks and wait for the ‘Harvest’ prompt to appear. Remember that you’ll need a Tier-2 pickaxe to gather flint, so be sure to upgrade it before setting out into the wilderness.




Bark Locations: Beaches and Swamps.

Bark is typically found in Swamp and Beach biomes. However, it’s best to steer clear of the Swamp in the early game, as it’s quite perilous. Stick to the Beach initially and venture into the Swamp only when you have the proper equipment.
