A list of useful buildings, techniques, and other things to build/use in survival that help you become more advanced. I'm going to make a large, self sufficient fortress with almost everything you could ever need on my survival world so I decided to make this to get some help from you guys, also I'll keep the list updated to help others. Also it would help if you suggest things and categorys to add to the original post :happy.gif: Thanks!
Useful Survival Things
-Storage, you need somewhere to keep all your stuff right?
