Islands are an environmental element in Raft.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Islands can contain various food items and flowers on the land, along with other resources located in the water near the island. Islands come in different shapes and sizes, with varying resources on each island, and It may be necessary to build several floors on your raft in order to climb onto the island. Abandoned huts can be found on islands, underwater and on land.
The following resources can only be found on islands:
- All Flowers and Flower Seeds (Black Seed, Blue Seed, Red Seed, White Seed, Yellow Seed)
- Mangoes, Pineapples, Watermelon
- Mango Seed, Pineapple Seed, Watermelon Seed, Palm Seed
The following resources can only be found underwater around islands:
Be aware that if you jump onto an island and your raft sails away due to not being anchored, after some time(depends how fast raft is moving), the island will despawn, dumping you into the water to be attacked by the shark. This is due to the raft being the focus of the game's creation engine, and anything too far from your raft is unable to be loaded and kept in game.
Large Islands[edit | edit source]
Large Islands are usually (but not necessarily) much "larger" in appearance than all other islands. After finding the radio tower, you can find large islands by using the receiver. You can also stumble on them randomly, like other islands, but not until after you find the radio tower.
Large islands have unique resources not found on other islands:
- A screecher
- Aggressive animals like pufferfishes and warthogs
- Friendly animals like Llama, Goat and Clucker, which produce Wool, Milk and Eggs respectively.
- Silver Algae
- Dirt (in caves and on mountaintops most predominantly)
- Red berries
- Cave mushrooms (in caves)
The large trees on these islands cannot be harvested, the same goes for the bamboo.
Caves[edit | edit source]
Uses[edit | edit source]
- Islands contain a wide variety of miscellaneous resources on land and underwater making them a necessary venture.
