Chimeraland House Building Guide
If you’ve ever wanted to build the home of your dreams in a video game, Chimeraland has it all. The house-building feature is arguably the best part of the whole game. Chimeraland gives you an entire batch of mechanics to play around with and the freedom to build in just about every part of the map, making it the perfect title to construct a home. For the most part, you can construct a bunch of wooden walls, put them together to form a square, build a roof, and get on with your travels; it’s much like the Fallout 4 building mechanic in this sense. In this Chimeraland house building guide; we’ll walk you through everything you need to get started.
However, we’ve got you covered if you want to know the nitty-gritty of the house-building mechanics. Here, we’ll discuss how you can construct your house and the various structures and objects you can unlock (and craft).
How to Get Started House Building in Chimeraland
It’s normal to feel that you want your home to be situated near a vantage spot or lovely scenery by the cliffside. If you want to look for the best location for your soon-to-be pad, you can go on a few travels around Chimeraland’s huge map before thinking of laying down the foundations of your home.
However, there’s no need to be concerned about where you put your house. After all, you can move at any time during your playthrough. If you’re asking us which site is best to settle down and build a “nest,” our answer is: to each their own. Finding a favorable spot in Chimeraland is easy—it all boils down to your preferences.
Some players prefer living inside a treehouse, while others the idea of excavating a dungeon or cave to form some sort of “secret entrance.” You can even live in the sky or atop the floating mountains. Overall, just about every spot on Chimeraland’s map is the “perfect” place to build the house, but what matters is what you consider to be “your spot.”
Getting the Spirit Orb
The Spirit Orb makes up the main foundation of your home in Chimeraland. It’s a mythical object that lets you do “Home Tech Research,” like crafting items in the game, such as devices you can use to decorate your home. What’s more, the Spirit Orb determines how much ground your home will cover. You can obtain this mythical item by doing one of the main quests in Chimeraland, where you open the function wheel and click on Fuse, Devices, then Sprit Base to craft the Spirit Orb.
You can place the Spirit Orb just about anywhere on the map, and once you do, you can freely use the terrain around it to build your house. Note that you can’t place the Spirit Orb on areas with many obstructions, such as large rocks.
Become Bob the Builder
The Spirit Orb will generate the home area once you plop it down. Inside this terrain, you can channel your inner “Bob the Builder” vibes and enter build mode. To do so, click the “Build” button, where you’ll be greeted with a slew of buildable structures and bases on the bottom screen. There are many categories to choose from, including Base, Laminate, and Columns; you can eventually unlock more of these (including Pavillions, Railings, etc.) as you increase your Home Level.
Each category is then spliced into sub-categories. For example, in the Base category, you can find the bases on which your walls will stand. If we slither down to the sub-categories of the Base, it will allow you to select from a variety of materials of the flooring you want to use, the height of it, and the like.
Keeping your home area’s borders in mind is the key to perfect structures. Remember—the game won’t let you build anything else outside of that area, so it’s crucial to be mindful of where you’re going to place the outlines of your base. Once that’s done, you can progress with the walls, roofing, windows, and the other inner structures. If you’re doing the furniture bit, always leave enough space for your character to pass through. What’s the point of owning a home if you can’t live in it?
If you need to rearrange or destroy parts of your house, you can do so by clicking the “Demolish” button. Then, you can use the white dot to select the item you want to be removed, click “Remove,” then voila!
Things You Make Using Home Tech Research
As we’ve said briefly before, the Spirit Orb allows you to do “Home Tech Research,” This means you can create neat, little thingamajigs with useful features and place them inside your house. Here are the different home devices you can make:
Useful for processing stone-made materials, the Forge converts stone into ores and crystals than can then be used as resources to craft all sorts of items.
The Workbench is designed to process wood-made materials and converts raw wooden products into boards and canes.
The Loom processes fiber-made materials and convert fiber into cloth or beast hide into leather.
True to its name, the Refiner refines your equipment and weapons. By combining five pieces of equipment or weapons, you can convert them into one equipment piece, weapon, or design plan that’s the same grade as the five items you’ve thrown into the Refiner or a grade higher.
- Coin Maker
The Coin Maker is the perfect generator for basic currencies in Chimeraland. If you’re looking to make a bit of passive income on the side, this is the way to do it.
Much like in real life, the Stove is used for cooking food. By combining different ingredients, you’ll get different dishes.
- Dressing Table
Lets you apply makeup to your character.
The Smelter converts unusable items into Refiner materials, like Cowries.
- Spirit Gatherer
This home device collects EXP for your character, even if you’re offline. The amount of EXP you collect is dependent on your Home Level.
Chillax in Your Chimeraland Home
Since the structural integrity of a house in Chimeraland degrades over time, don’t forget to repair it by doing some maintenance. There are so many ways to build a house; there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Whether you’re looking to live by the lake or near a forest, what matters most is that you’re happy with how your digs turned out.
