Tree House/Guard Tower (READ DESCRIPTION) | The Forest

1672 ratings | 87406 views
IMPORTANT: Update v0.67 has made rock walls destructible by enemies. To prevent this from being destroy, you will need to turn off building destruction mode. This build is still viable as normal tree houses can be knocked down whether you have building damage on or off. SAVE BEFORE DESTROYING THE PILLARS - IT MAY BE BUGGED! Learn how to build a invulnerable tree house and guard tower. This structure has many uses and purposes, plus it looks cool. Rock walls cannot be destroyed by the enemy, tree can be destroyed by the enemy. Cannibals can climb tress and the Armsy can cut the trees down. This is why I never liked the idea of a tree house base. Though this build WILL overcome that. This is build can be built how ever you want. It can be as big or small as you want. TIP: If you are struggling to reach and need more than the log cart with logs on it. You can build a crane or a custom stairs to reach the area. I strive to release videos daily for The Forest.

When I was playing my first play through I saw enemies climbing trees lol
Why not do 4 big tall pillars? Im not Trolling just asking
So from point 3:04 I started the custom platform in the center then I chopped the other 4 down, the 4th one was the one I ended my points on and the whole thing crashed down. :(
OK I figured out my error, Start from the center go to the four outer point then go back to the center point and end there again, that is how you make the center the main post.
How do you get the logs up there?

Thats awesome :D but kinda boring when they cant get you

Nice :)

They might bring back the dynamite cannibal yet...
Does this build still work? How can I make it as big as I want?
Farket (16 days ago)
It still works though rock walls can be killed by mutants now. Yeah you can make it as big as you want for sure.

I always hear "Hello everyone it's fucketty". Is it intended? Anyway thanks for your vids on The Forest, great job man.

Hey Farket, I love your video's. I actually watch them with my morning coffee. I find them very informative. They have lead to a lot of Inspiration in the game for me in regards to building structures, and survival tactics. This brings me to why I'm commenting - on this particular video no less - I've recently built this model of Tree-house in my single player save; I would love to turn it into a series of towers connected by bridges. Do you have an effective method, or any pointers on how to easily line up a second tower for this?
Farket (1 month ago)
Cheers. Nice work. Would love to see a picture of it. Discord is good for that, I have a link for mine in the description of videos. I would suggest using a custom foundation blueprint as a guide. Lining things up can be very difficult in this game.
James Hetfield (1 month ago)
how did u get that blue color for your blueprint?
Ossie Dunstan (1 month ago)
can you still build this
Farket (1 month ago)
Yeah, I’d recommend check out the video I made mentioning the FARC method. It shows how to build it floating instead so its 100% safe.

crazypolite (2 months ago)
Great idea.. unless they patch it to allow them to break rock walls.. anyhow lets face it, the easiest way to build a safe base is by building a house boat and/or large raft.. Almost unfair to the cannibals at how safe you are being only feet from the shore
crazypolite (2 months ago)
Farket lol! I just mean like.. fighting the cannibals is part of the fun.. unless they become ridiculous in volume. Anyway thanks for your videos man, you've helped me immensely
Farket (2 months ago)
I really appreciate your views on equality and fairness on the cannibals. Its good to see such a progressive mind whilst viewing the comments.

All I did to protect my house was, I put my treehouse up and then at the bottom, I built a little ""home" to guard the tree and the rope. I put rock walls around the house below. home"

Snake Doctor (5 months ago)
Why'd they go and make rock walls destructible? I get that the game's not supposed to be about building awesome structures, but there needs to be somewhere you can go to feel safe. I swear, if they make it so cannibals can attack you in water, then base building will become pointless. It would make the game more challenging/terrifying, I suppose.

How can you suggest this in 2017 when cannibals have been throwing molotovs since 2015?

Fire doesn't damage structures.
MoonshineCole (6 months ago)
just build stone walls around a tree that you have your tree on...

Can you make the base bigger by placing the rocks father?

Yep just did it and just been destoyed by arm/legsies (it was tough anyway)... but it did "float" that's right !... well until it hit the ground ! ^^ It was logic that nothing could be invulnerable in the game... I'm pretty sure they will come up with something that render buildings in water vulnerable too !

aloneBG (6 months ago)
"Rock walls cannot be destroyed" - Do you actually believe in yourself? I build rock walls every day in The Forest - and when they hit it - they broke it
Farket (6 months ago)
+aloneBG Read the description, there was an update that changed it. Also, this will most likely float if the pillar is destroyed.
Frankie Turner (6 months ago)

does this still work in the latest update also does the happy birthday trap break when attacked

Saracen1974 (7 months ago)
That is REALLY clever, however you can encase a tree in a rock wall and make sure that it goes all the way up, however your idea is really cool. Nice job.
Farket (6 months ago)
+Saracen1974 Cheers. I am not too keen on the idea as armsys can reach a fair distance through walls. On my building damage videos, they can reach over two meters so that would be a lot of rock walls

i built this tonight I got it on the first go but my first Foundation wasn't perfect and my first platform was too far in even though I thought I had it on the edge I had to make another one doesn't quite look as pretty but I went 5 tiers up but it does work it's effective excellent work figuring this out
Farket (7 months ago)
+maxerious brooks Yeah this is a bit of a complex build. I test built it 6 times before I managed to get it right enough to make a video about it. It gets easier the more you build it.

I've just finished my 'Farket's column' on the Fertile Lands. It worked perfectly after a few failed attempts - due to my own incompetence. I'm using my first one to store my meat racks out of the reach of thieving cannibals. Going to try a bigger one next as a guard tower with arrow baskets etc.
Farket (7 months ago)
+Kind Kyttocks Thats a really good idea keeping your food racks in their, cannibals and food racks aye. So frustrating.

Chris Dunfield (7 months ago)
once youre building the rocks ontop of the custom platform near the end, right before u add the roof and platform itself, how are you getting logs up that high? cant carry them up the rope right..
Farket (7 months ago)
+Chris Dunfield I worked out a new method. I made a video yesterday about scaffolding using roofs. Very cheap, 8 logs will have you 4 stories in the air. Cheers
﴾Λ͟rtificial﴿ (7 months ago)
You can utilize the empty space between the floors by placing a garden down (easy manageable food)
ooglepants (7 months ago)
excellent build. i would think you could build 2 and connect them and really have quite the base. (or more, but 2 is enough)

Farket (7 months ago)
+Max Haha soon hopefully.
MyReactions (7 months ago)
Why wasting so much time doing that when you can make a tree house and surround that tree with 3 4 layers of rock walls for protection against mutants and canibals. Takes you at least 30 40 rocks to do it besides the house. Nice guide though.
Alex Armsy (5 months ago)
MyReactions You know that firemen can straight up burn the tree through walls?
Jenzz (6 months ago)
They could wreck the tree through the stone walls if i'm not mistaken, i've had armsys destroy my wooden structures behind a rock wall
Kind Kyttocks (7 months ago)
I would say this gives you increased flexibility - you are not restricted by only being able to build where there is a suitable tree. You could build an indestructible guard tower anywhere. I'm going to give it a go.
Farket (7 months ago)
Yeah thats true too. I am not sure how far they can jump. But I believe it is pretty far.
Omar R (7 months ago)
MyReactions CrossFire Europe and remove trees around since they can jump from one another and if you have regrow trees will be around you.

+Alex Armsy No worries, honestly... Me too! The tree houses looked cool but I was too scared of losing them. Plus this can be customized. Glad it helped, cheers.
Levi Black (7 months ago)
But, how high does it have to be to be tree fall proof?
Phoenix Coates (6 months ago)
Or you could just use my save, I happen to have had this kind of thing for quite awhile :)
Farket (7 months ago)
+Levi Black I think that's a question for the gods... It would have to be tested. I didn't save the game with this one so I would have to make it again :(
Badja (7 months ago)
that gave me an idea... would it be possible to build own cannibal villages? (with the custom floors and roof)
Farket (7 months ago)
+Badja Thats an awesome idea. Yeah you can, just need to attach the floor to something, one row of rock walls would do. I haven't tested it with custom platforms. I might try this idea out, if I make a video Ill give you credit. Cheers
Moldovan Nicolae (7 months ago)
What about the canibals with molotovs,i know that they can burn your tree house but what about other structures like this one.Nice video tho,love your clips
Moldovan Nicolae (7 months ago)
Thanks
Farket (7 months ago)
+Snițăl Gaming I actually recorded myself talking about that, I cant remember why I cut it out. They cannot damage buildings. No fire damage can. For example, molotov traps wont damage buildings etc.

Variara (7 months ago)
another great vid! thanks again for this idea. i have a question though, if i place like a stone wall around the area im building, will the cannibals/mutants be able to cross/jumpover it? because i've seen some cannibals jump when they attack me.
Kind Kyttocks (7 months ago)
Mico Raymond you'll be safe with a crouch entrance. They can't get in through those. Virginia can't jump three high stone walls.
Ramit Inmah Ashol (7 months ago)
what if I build a 3-high wall with a hole underneath for my crouching entrance, will those little cannibals be able to get in that 1-high hole? and will a virginia be able to jump the 3-high wall?
Farket (7 months ago)
+Variara Yeah they can jump over it, they leap over fences and other small structures with ease. Two high and they can climb it. Three high is too high for them. Cowmen cannot get past single row stone walls.

Conson SaW (7 months ago)
When I broke the 4th pillar, the wooden platform exploded? any ideas of what might've went wrong?
Farket (7 months ago)
+Conson SaW Yeah I am not sure. Hard to tell without it being seen built if you know what I mean. A lot of these tutorials I do manipulate the game mechanics so there's going to be times its not going to work, though I tested this one quite a bit. I can only advise to try it again but save before you do it in case something goes wrong. Let me know though. If there's a bug you have found that I haven't, I want people to know. Cheers
Conson SaW (7 months ago)
I decided to try to rebuild it somwehere else, (after some attempts at reconstructing it without using ur method) and the floor seems to be floating now? (I used dynamite to destroy the middle rock pillars)
Conson SaW (7 months ago)
I destroyed it with a modern axe, I tried plane axe too, but as I swing at the stone walls on the side, I can see the floor seeming to take damage, it looks very damaged at this point, and I can't seem to repair it from below (tried building a couple platforms to get right under it and still no option)
Farket (7 months ago)
+Conson SaW Did you use instant destruction mode to destroy it? I have a feeling this might be bugged. I would suggest saving before destroying it. It doesnt need to be destroyed but it does take away from the look.
