In Monolith you are given many skills, one of them is woodcutting. While not as interesting as others, woodcutting does serve a purpose in obtaining furniture to decorate your house.
If smacking your axe against trees is something that you enjoy then this guide might be usefull for you.
In order to start leveling this skill, you first need a woodaxe.
You can buy for $339 from the tools cashier at the supermarket.
Once you got your axe its time to start chopping, however most trees you'll come across can't actually be chopped. You need to find specifiy ones.
Head to the outskirts of the city, the trees that can be cut do not spawn in the city. To know if a tree can be used, walk towards it, if a bar appears it means you can cut in it. Another way to check this is to see if the tree has a shadow. In order to save you a lot of time I've made a map here that shows all the locations that trees can be found at: (click it for fullsize)
I've made an album of all the area's of the map, so if you want a more clear vision of actually where each type is click here
Certain types of logs require a higher level. Everyone can cut the normal wood log, but other types require a higher level. In order to gather logs, simply walk up to a tree and starting hitting it with your axe (left mouse button/primary attack).
You will notice that the bar on the tree will start to decrease, once it reaches zero you will no longer receive any logs from that source and you will have to move on to another tree, thankfully their supply resets after some time.
The amount of XP (woodcutting xp) you earn is a pretty simple equation.
xp earned = 25 + math.floor( skilllevelrequired * 0.8 )
So this means:
25 + math.floor(1 * 0.8) = 25 xp -- Regular log 25 + math.floor(14 * 0.8) = 36 xp -- Pine log 25 + math.floor(24 * 0.8) = 44 xp -- Birch log 25 + math.floor(38 * 0.8) = 55 xp -- Maple log 25 + math.floor(48 * 0.8) = 63 xp -- Willow log
It will take so time to level this skill up, so being patient is the key here. If you want to see what level you are or how much XP is left then press C, press Applications and select skills (or click here).
Now that you know where to chop and understand the leveling behind it, lets talk making profit. You can sell your logs to the same person you bought the axe from. (tools cashier at the supermarket)
In Monolith the equation for selling an item to a NPC is
profit = math.Round(itembaseprice * .10)
To keep it simple I made a list so you know how much money you make from selling one log.
Regular log = $1 Pine log = $2 Birch log = $3 Maple log = $6 Willow log = $12
1 (profit of one regular log) * 4 * 1.5 = your profit
Hopefully you learned something with this guide. If you have any questions or found a mistake in the guide let me know and I will fix it asap.
