[Base Defence] Gabions aka wire mehs walls | late game alternative to log walls

Recommended Posts

I'd like to suggest to you:


Gabions aka wire mehs walls





Make use of 1037986792_Wire1.png.17e242963a36c6ffa1af492b08690cdd.png and 870349115_ScrapMetal_120px1.png.036a7582c28bb0a6630bd76829141bc3.png to create the wire mesh with the metalworking skill, 882672710_BlowTorch_120px1.png.3b29b1b9065d10facef2686e42861562.png ,2094804213_WeldingRods_120px1.png.50565b357dc701638c82fb0cfaaf8652.png and 1511417306_WeldingMask1.png.7b250cf9dfa44650ae75c75961d9d43a.png

Using 447930350_TZ_Shovel1.png.f8a7f995870e968fd8186f674c7eb20a.png to dig a trench for foundation

Creating the foundation with 1790427707_Concrete_Powder1.png.b198e96521d8f7981fdb2e5b81140fcd.png, 1505158193_SandbagZ1.png.ed5bb36270666bd513ee68ab5a9e701a.png(?), 2101263047_WaterDrop1.png.a84ae37d0b15c0533ba24f84b58f763a.png and 678241828_Bucket_Empty1.png.499888c080947d1abe62ea47f819156b.png

Adding the mesh to the foundation with 235548842_MATERIALScrew1.png.3714412e154cc3a0e37aa0aeb53e0896.png (from 47686644_MATERIALBoxofScrews1.png.86a3fa64eca05a7e668f635cc45536ab.png) and the use of 139461747_Smallscrewdriver1.png.4d42db71578fab1f7b69ccd7d146b807.png

Finally filling these with excess stones (1453803601_Rock1.png.3aa9122d704fff835966598bdca87772.png and 2090098720_RockSharpened1.png.bdac3b13f06546cb13f9b772756de00c.png) from foraging (good way to get rid of them)



1 - Shovel: Dig a small trench for a concrete foundation

2 - Bucket: Create a unit of concrete from sand out of sandbags (optional - finite resource?), cement bags and water

3 - Metalworking: Craft mesh units from wire and metal scrap

4 - Assemble: Pour concrete into trench, wait some hours till cured (optional), screw mesh unit onto concrete, add stones to wire mesh

5 - Profit!


These walls could possibly be an alternative to the log walls in mid / late game

Good point, never thought about the "old methods". But I can imagine, that the durability wouldn't be great compared to the metalworked ones. Also this would need to add "wicker" or "reed" to the game. Maybe one can substitute with 985626210_Twigs_120px1.png.e36e56c9c404cd0f62d766e8e2e5bb02.png or 91438463_Branch_120px1.png.ce7595963f151983894c69b624ff7cbf.png.
