Logs are an item that are generated when a tree is chopped down, which is done most effectively with an axe. They can be found while foraging and inside log stacks.
Logs are incredibly heavy, with a weight of 9. The player can combine logs using rope to reduce the weight to just a third. Up to 4 logs can be combined in this way.
Using a saw, 1 log can be converted into 3 wooden planks, being incredibly important in carpentry. Logs can also be used to create log walls, which are slightly stronger than the variety crafted using planks, and with the added benefit of requiring neither nails nor a saw to craft.
