I need to build a Stone Dinosaur Gateway. To build it I need about 280 Stone 140 Wood 100 Thatch. These materials are far too heavy to be in my inventory. I can carry about 150 units and need about 250. How am I supposed to build it? Do I really need to wait 10 levels and put every single point into "weight" (weight goes 10 units up if skilled and one has a single skill-point per level)?

  • @KevinFischer And then? I need to have them in my inventory to build the Gateway. Transportation is not a problem but rather having the materials in my very own inventory.

  • you can still add things to your inventory and not move (if i remember right, it's been about six months since i've played). make the gateway, should stay in your inventory and place it where you'd like it to go. Jan 11, 2017 at 14:14
  • @KevinFischer Yep, good idea. I've already tried this. However, this is limited to a certain amount. If you are approximately 180/150 you can't add any further materials.

  • okay, have you tried accessing your animal's inventory menu, then go to create (i think it's the top left tab) and create something from there? i can't remember if you can actually create something while in an animal's inventory. Jan 11, 2017 at 14:19

Carry the light resources first, thatch, wood, stone, the stone should only way 90 or so pounds so you should be able to make it to the chest by the time you start to get over weight. If this does not work, make a chest in your general building area and transport the materials by as much as you can carry. You could also use tamed dinosaurs. I tamed a bronto with tranq darts, tranq arrows, a club and a slingshot. I also recommend farming and getting pigs for fertilizer.


I do this all the time, you can overload yourself to just shy of double your maximum carrying capacity, so if you have 150 weight, you can carry about 300ish pounds before you can't put anything else in your inventory.

What you do is put all your resources into a dino (careful not to overload if they're coming with you) or storage bin, and once you've gathered all the resources, pull them all out of the bin/dino and craft away.

After it's done, the resources will be consumed and you're left with just the item, which for building materials is typically only 4 pounds.
