The Tree Sap Tap can be used to obtain Sap.png Sap.

Placement[edit | edit source]

The tap has to be attached to a mature redwood tree (i.e. the ones with the deep bark) in the Redwood Forests. It must be installed below the canopy, and fairly high up (at least 11 units above ground).

To reach the tap for harvesting, a survivor must either stand on a dismounted Quetz, a Tree Platform, a Griffin, or a ladder, mounted on some walls.

Sap Gathering[edit | edit source]

Each tap will automatically collect up to a maximum of 20 Sap over a long period (ex.4 hours). Multiple taps may be attached to a single tree.

The tap will approximately collect 1 sap every 10 min 20 seconds.

You need to access the taps inventory after it's been initially placed or the sap gathering will not begin.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If taps must be hidden, choosing a tree whose trunk is obscured by younger saplings is required; this may be desired as the metal taps double as an unobtrusive land-claim mechanism.
  • Taps may be Unlocked as a public service.
  • Having Multiple Taps on a tree increases the time for each tap to produce a single sap by the amount of taps within close proximity. (Time to create 1 sap x Amount of Taps nearby). This has no effect on how fast you will obtain sap from all taps, but it will increase storage for sap (x20 per tree tap).
  • Sometimes, one needs to access the Taps inventory before it starts collecting Sap.
