How the game’s wilderness crafting systems work
Most salvage can be the basis for a number of different crafted items. The herb cattail can be fluffed up to serve as clothing insulation, used to light fires, braided into cord for a snare, or, if you’re really desperate, eaten as a snack. Crafting one item means not being able to craft another, of course. You might regret stuffing cattail up your sleeves in an hour or two, when you’re unable to catch a rabbit for your dinner.
