    • There’s two new environmental items for water distillation including:

      Stone Water Still
      Large Rock x3
      Sharpened Item

      With this one, you have to pour unpurified water into it (right click), light it on fire, and wait until it burns out to grab the now distilled water.

      Solar Still
      Sheet of Glass (Tongs, Refined Sand x3, Limestone Powder, Furnace)

      With a solar still, you have the pour unpurified water into it, then wait a couple hundred turns. This will only work during the day. After it’s done, you can grab the distilled water.

      You can also use a direct recipe method:

      A Purified Filled Waterskin
      Flask (Clay Blow Pipe, Refined Sand x2, Limestone Powder, Furnace)
      An Unpurified Filled Waterskin

      Using a flask, you can distill water directly using a campfire with an unpurified waterskin.

      There’s some other thirst-reducing foods as well including Snow, Pineapples, Nopal, and Coconuts.

  1. I can’t figure out how to make a bandage to stop poisoning i’ve looked on the Wiki but its not very developed so no help there but if anyone could help that would be great.
