In addition to Monzola Island and Occulm Island, where players will visit in search of building knowledge and friends, there are various other islands surrounding Vacant Island. On small islands called “Material Islands,” players can gather lots of building materials, including valuable ores and rare flower seeds. Furthermore, by finding a lot of materials, frequently used materials such as wood and string will become available for unlimited use on the workbench.
