In a LEGO settlement In Fortnite you can build a garden of plants and a farm to gain new features. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about planting seeds in the game.
There are many useful plants growing around your settlement, but you can also grow your own plants without leaving the village. It’s useful to have plants at your base because it’s an easy way to stock up on food when you need it most.
Placing a chest near plants allows you to store food so that all players can share it when they need it. It is better to keep a lot of seeds in your garden because you can quickly collect them on the go and not have to spend hours replacing seeds.
How to make a shovel
The first step is to make a shovel to dig out the soil. To build a workbench you only need three units of wood and five units of granite.
Next you need a sawmill; its creation requires five units of wood and 15 units of granite. Now it’s time to make a scoop. This requires three wooden sticks and one plank.
How to dig soil
Grab your shovel and find a spot on the ground to dig out the soil. This can be any type of soft surface. Fortunately, the tiles you take the soil from are not destroyed during the process. Press R2 (on the controller) using the shovel. In this case, the land is automatically added to your inventory.
Where can you find fertilizers?
Fertilizers are easy to find, just walk around any location where there are animals and you will find brown piles on the ground – these are fertilizers. They are quite small and usually well hidden among grass and shrubs, so keep an eye out.
Of course, the ability to obtain fertilizer to some extent is not entirely up to you. A good way to get fertilizer early on is to feed your animals pumpkins, raspberries or corn by simply throwing these items on the ground near them.
How to make a garden plot
Next you need a garden plot in which to grow the seeds. The Garden Plot recipe is added when creating the shovel. To make one tile you need two types of soil and one fertilizer.
Where to find seeds
Seeds can be found in the wild as random drops from creatures, or in chests in ruined houses or caves. Sometimes chests can be well hidden, so destroy the walls and take a good look around.
Once you discover and start crafting granite items and building a stone crusher, you’ll unlock the recipe for a grain mill that produces seeds when you put food in it.
What kinds of seeds are there?
Below are all the seeds in LEGO Fortnite, where you can find them and what you can do with the food they yield. There are other fruits and mushrooms in the game, but they cannot be grown as seeds and are therefore not on this list.
- A snowberry seed can be removed from a snowberry bush. They are used to prepare snowberry cocktails, which provide heat resistance. They can also be eaten raw;
- You can find raspberry seeds while exploring the world or after cutting down a raspberry bush. Raspberries are eaten to restore health and hunger;
- You can find wheat grains by exploring the world or by harvesting wheat. Wheat can be ground into flour and used to make foods that restore health and hunger;
- Pumpkin seeds can be collected by collecting wild pumpkins or exploring the world. Pumpkins can be eaten to restore health and hunger;
- Hot pepper seeds are collected from plants or when exploring the world. Hot peppers replenish hunger and health, but also provide some cold resistance.
How to plant seeds
Find a good spot for your garden and place the tiles there. To plant seeds, click on a garden plot to open the inventory screen. From here, move any seeds you have to the right side to place them in your garden plot’s inventory.
Now all you have to do is wait for the plant to grow. You’ll know the process has started when you see a small sprout rising above the mound of soil, as shown in the images.
The plant needs time to fully bloom and bear fruit. The game shows the progress stages. At the end, go to the garden plot and collect your harvest.
Seeds grow automatically, meaning players don’t have to worry about watering them. The more seeds a player places on a garden plot, the longer the crop will continue to produce. The plant will die if players collect it. The new one will start growing as long as there is at least one seed left in the garden plot. Once all the seeds are used up, the plants will stop growing, but players can still use the garden plot to grow other seedlings.
How to make a farm with animals
The colorful world of LEGO Fortnite offers players the opportunity to gather resources, build shelters and cities, and even befriend local wildlife. Interacting with and caring for the island’s animals can provide important resources for survival.
How to make friends with animals
All animals love to eat different treats. Chickens, cows and sheep are often attracted to plants such as pumpkins, raspberries and corn. Simply take one of these products from your inventory and throw it near the animal to get its attention. They rush for a snack, and you can pet the creature and receive a small reward: eggs, milk or wool. Animals can also be killed to obtain meat.
Keep in mind that resources aren’t guaranteed to drop every time, so you’ll need to repeat this several times to increase your chances of getting a reward.
How to build a paddock and farm
To create a sustainable farming system, you must maintain and protect your new animal friends.
Build simple enclosures from wooden half walls and lure the animals in by throwing food right at the entrance. Fences are not suitable because they are easy to climb over. Even a character can’t get over half the walls.
Once they have arrived at the treats, quickly build the passage by placing the last blocks of fencing. You now have your own livestock to care for and collect resources. The problem is that unfortunately the animal can disappear.
Tips for caring for animals
Don’t carry weapons around shy creatures. Experiment with different foods to learn your pet’s preferences. Pat multiple times to increase your chances of obtaining resources. Pay attention to prey such as eggs, milk, wool and fertilizer. Maintain cages to keep animals safe.
Use the materials obtained to prepare nutritious meals, craft useful equipment, and grow crops. As your farming community flourishes, the game’s possibilities expand.
