Worlds Adrift Wiki

Schematics are the representation of knowledge in Worlds Adrift. One schematic represents instruction on how to craft that particular item. Schematics have two main categories:

  • Procedural Rarity Schematics
  • Other Schematics

As of Closed Beta 0.1.4 , all players have a schematic cap. Meaning players can only learn that many schematics at one time. Players can unlearn other schematics to free up a slot but this won't give any form of compensation. However, you can increase that cap by researching the Schematic Slot node in the Knowledge tree giving an extra slot on research, the Knowledge cost will increase each time you research it.

Getting Schematics[]

There are two main ways to gather schematics in Worlds Adrift:

1. Knowledge Tree[]

The knowledge tree allows you to spend knowledge points on learning new procedural schematic. You start at T1 and work your way to T4. With each tier requiring more knowledge to progress to the next one.

2. Scavenging[]

All types of Schematics spawn in loot chests but not in scrap piles (read more about this on the Metal page). There are usually about 5 of these chests on any given Island. However, this method is currently much more profitable and as such may be changed to switch player focus onto using the Knowledge Tree.

Using Schematics[]

Once you have a schematic you can use Right Mousebutton then select "Learn" when it'll be added into your Crafting menu, from which you can now craft it using the necessary tool.

Schematic Rarities[]

Procedural rarity schematics have different base statistics which are then have a minor changed by the resource used. Currently the only procedural schematics are Cannons, Engines and Wings.

Common Rarity (Tier 1)[]

These are the most basic and most common schematics with very low stats. Usually being all made out of wood.

Uncommon Rarity (Tier 2)[]

An upgrade from common schematics, these schematics have better stats but are harder to find. They are identified by their green name tag.

Rare Rarity (Tier 3)[]

These are the mid-tier schematics and have a blue name tag, mostly made of metal.

Exotic Rarity (Tier 4)[]

These are very high tier schematics and have a yellow name tag. Usually completely made of metal.
