By default, die and respawn in Icarus will drop you off in a random location (usually near your dropship). If your corpse is farther away, it will be a long hike. This is where bed rolls and wooden beds come into play. Here is ours Icarus Instructions for creating spawn points using beds and bed rolls.
Note: We will be a Icarus Guides and features will be the focus soon, so stay tuned.
Icarus Instructions: Create new spawn points by making wooden beds and sleeping rolls
Requirements for sleeping castors and wooden beds
Bed castors and wooden beds in Icarus must be activated in the technology tree. Here are the requirements:
- Level 1 – Can be unlocked at the beginning after learning how to make a campfire. You can then spend a point learning this blueprint.
- Materials – 20x fiber, 10x stick, 20x fur and 10x leather.
- Wooden beds
- Level 2 – Requires Level 10 to unlock the Crafting Bank. Then reach level 15 to unlock the carpenter’s bench. You can then spend a point learning this blueprint.
- Materials – 20x refined wood, 30x fur, 10x leather and 10x copper nails.
Because of the materials and the effort involved, it is more than likely that you will stick with making bedrolls from early to late game experience. Plus, when you’re out and about, you don’t want to carry around a lot of stuff that still needs refinement.
New spawn points
Even if you have these items, they will be useless if you just drop them outside. Instead, you need to build a shelter. A fairly common option is to make wooden fixtures (e.g. walls and roofs) sufficient to enclose the object. If you get it right you can hold down “E” to bring the bedroll or wooden bed in to a new spawn point. to transform Icarus.
Note 1: If you need to move to a new location, you can hover your mouse over a device and press “Y”. It will be dismantled and returned to your inventory.
Note 2: If you want to rest a little, you need to make a campfire (8x fiber, 8x stick and 24x stone). You can sleep in a sleeper roll or a wooden bed that has a campfire nearby.
Hollow rock formations
An alternative, if you do not want to bring different materials with you, is to use a stone pickaxe (8x fiber, 8x stick and 24x stone). When you see a large rock formation, the tool can be used to hollow it out and tunnel it through. Make sure the bottom is flat and there is enough space inside. Then place a sleeping roll on this spot.
The game will think that you’ve created a shelter and that the bedroll is locked in, so you can use it as a temporary spawn point in. can use Icarus.
Icarus is available on Steam.
