Lightyear Frontier: How to Build Your Homestead



Lightyear Frontier is a new crafting adventure game that will embark players on a peaceful journey to show off their farming and exploration skills either alone or with up to 3 friends. As players begin their journey with a crash landing on a mysterious Alien Planet, they will have to get access to their Mech and retrieve all the lost tools. Once done, they will have to build a homestead to have a safe place for sleeping.

In this guide, we’ll tell you how to build your Homestead in Lightyear Frontier.

How to Build Your Homestead in Lightyear Frontier

There are various kinds of Homestead in Lightyear Frontier and the earliest one that you will get to unlock is the Small Tent structure which requires Wood and Plant Fiber to craft. For the other and stronger Homestead, you will have to explore the other regions of the planet and get more powerful resources.

For your first homestead, we recommend you build a Small Tent in the middle of The Meadows region near the eastern waterfall pond. The surface is quite flat which is great for building a small farming spot and since water is very crucial for watering your crops, you will be able to get the water from the pond.

Where to Get the Resources for a Small Tent

As the Small Tent is the beginning Homestead in the game, you can gather the required resources from The Meadows region. You will have to get the Wood from the normal trees using the Spike Saw tool and get the Plant Fiber from the bushes or the small plants also using the Spike Saw tool. The exact requirement to build the Small Tent is as follows.

  • 20x Plant Fiber
  • 8x Wood

How to Build the Small Tent

To build the Small Tent, you can follow the following steps.

  • Upon finding a suitable location for your homestead, press the B button, to open the building menu.
  • Select the ‘Home’ icon from the tabs to find the Small Tent structure.
  • Select the Small Tent structure by pressing the LMB and then place it down on the ground.
  • Now, go near the highlight of the structure and add the resources to it by holding down the E button.

Once you have added the resources, the Small Tent will be crafted and available for you to sleep and spend the time to start the next day. All you have to do is exit the Mech by holding the E button and then interact with the small tent to sleep and start the next day.

Playing Video Games is the very first hobby that I partake in and it became my favorite hobby. Played Unreal Tournament 2004 as my first game which made me a fan of FPS Games. Story and Adventure Games are still my Cup of Tea to go with as they give more detailing to the described worlds and characters. I love to help out my fellow gamers across all over the world by making my publications.
