When the inventory is full in Raft, it is possible for players to discard unwanted items. This can be done either by pressing Q or by dragging the item out of inventory using the cursor. However, instead of throwing away items, it’s best for players to first consider getting storage space to keep their excess items.
But if inventory is replenished by traveling outside the raft, people will have no choice but to sort out which item they want more than the other. This can be very frustrating as it sometimes means rafters have to throw useful items. To avoid being forced to do so, Raft players can craft a backpack instead.
How to increase the inventory size in the raft
To increase the inventory size in Raft, players must equip a backpack on their character. Only one backpack will take effect, so make sure you don’t pack more than necessary. This is particularly important because, unlike some equipable items in RaftBackpacks do not rot or break.
So far, there are two types of backpacks available:
- Backpack: Adds 10 more inventory slots
- large backpack: Adds 15 more inventory slots
How to make a raft backpack
To make a normal backpack in Raft, people must first learn it at the Research Table. For this they will need:
After researching the item, a backpack will now show up in the crafting menu. To create a bag, the rafters require:
- Leather x4
- Rope x4
- Wool x6
Meanwhile, a large backpack will not be available until players find its blueprint at Utopia. This place is the last location of the third chapter, so it will be a long time before people can access it. If the rafters haven’t started their story mode yet, they can do so by reaching the radio tower in Raft.
Of course, since this is a better version of the standard backpack, people need to prepare more resources to create one:
- Leather x10
- Rope x4
- Wool x10
