The Water Collector is an item which is a crafted from Tarp, Lumber and Water Barrel components.

Overview Edit

The water collector is an alternative way for a player to collect water in the game. After constructing a water barrel, the player can position it anywhere on their property. The water collector will fill from rainwater. Initially, this water will be Clean Water, however, after any irradiating storms the clean water will turn to Strange Water and must be purified before safe consumption.

The water collector can hold up to 200 L of liquid. The player can withdraw water from the water collector into any portable liquid container.

The Water Collector is a crafting product, and cannot be found by looting.

Placement Edit

To place the item, players will need to right-click the item in their inventories, and choose "Place". A preview of the item's placement will appear in front of the player's field of view, bound to the player's movement and direction.

Rotation of the part can be done by holding the Alt

key, and moving the mouse side to side. If the placement of the item is suitable, the item will be highlighted in green. If the placement is invalid, the item will be highlighted in red.
