In many forums that deal with games, people get angry about "newbies" who ask - in their eyes - stupid questions about how this or that is done in the game.
It indeed is bad for the readability of the forum, if lots of little threads with such cleverly chosen headlines as "PROBLEM!!11 NEED HLEP!1" jam the forum. A suitable solution is a central thread for such questions. There's already an equivalent one by the name of "Blöde Fragen" in the German forum.
Ask here in the future, if you do not know how to go on in the game. And please use the spoiler tag if your question reveals something about the campaign - keep in mind that mainly people who haven't got through the campaign yet will be around here. Speaking of the campaign: Also read the Adventure FAQ, if it's about the adventure mode. Some questions are very frequent and start to bore us.
-------------
How to use this thread - in 2 steps:

Step 1: The newbie asks - without bowing. After all, stupid questions are what this thread is for.
Step 2: The old stager answers - without complaining, what a stupid question he thinks it is. After all, stupid questions are what this thread is for.

Hooray! Here we go...

Edit:
5 years later, I've got this to add:
If you want to search through this thread, you can use the ordinary search tool and type this thread's number 47369 and whatever is the keyword for your problem.
If you don't know how to make a hammer, type "47369 hammer". Thank you casualGamer for this idea!
Also the forum software won't accept this thread's original title "Newbie Questions", so I must alter it...

First of all, great game!
Now for my question;
Is there any list of how to make all items with what?
How to build an axe, fishing rod, pickaxe, etc...?

You can always read the mod files in the sys folder, anyway.

There is an English version of everything thanks to Babel Fish!

...what the hell? You do realize some of the crucial code words would be changed due to translation. Also, auto translaters usually make things into uncomprehendable english.

if you translate from german to english there shouldn't be any chances in the commands, since they are already english words

Okay, here's another newbie question:

On the fourth Adventure island, where can I find bananas? I have learned the language of the natives, and got a list of items to get. I have everything, except the bananas.

Now, I have walked all around the island looking at the treetops, but couldn't see any bananas growing on trees. Did find some coconut palms near the village, but those aren't accepted.

I remember reading on these forums that you can tame monkeys, so I thought maybe a tamed monkey brings you bananas, but I don't know how to tame them, either. Nets don't work, and even though I have read something indicating that I might need to throw food at them, I can't figure out how to throw anything other than spears. I enter the inventory, click on a food item (I tried with mushrooms), press 'T' to make it appear in the bottom right corner of the screen, and... nothing. I can click the mouse button or 'E', it won't be thrown away.

So, my questions are:

- Where can I find bananas on the fourth adventure island?
- How can I tame monkeys?
- If the answer to the above is "throw food at them", then how do I throw food? As in, what button do I have to press?

The only food you can throw is raw meat and bananas, for taming raptors and monkeys respectively.

Bananas grow in bunches around some palms, just like coconuts do. Their leaves are different from other palm leaves -- thicker, wider, darker, sturdier-looking. They're hard to spot at first. They grow bananas at a rate of about one per few days. Wander the island until you find a straight, tall palm with wide leaves like that and you should see the bananas up in it. Either jump up high enough to pick them or knock them down with the slingshot.

Ah, thanks for the help. If anyone's similarly lost, I've found two groups of banana palms: if one stands in front of the village, facing the main entrance, there are a few trees right off the gate (within firing range, unfortunately), and there's another group to the left of the village on the seashore.

yes, you can build some (have forgotten the english names, sry ), but you have to build several other things before to enable them.

Cool thank you so much. I have another noobish question though.
a) is it possible to plant bananas and coconuts to make banana and coconut trees?
b) What are the monkeys used for?
c) Where do I get more of that animal skin like there is on lions because I'm playing the random island one and I've killed all the lions?
d) How do you plant grain?

I would ask the questions in german aber mein deutsch ist schlecht.

Yes. Just the same way as with grain or grapes.

speedyg747 has written:
b) What are the monkeys used for?

He can search you some food and materials when tamed.
Just go to him and press [E] to get a menu.

speedyg747 has written:
d) How do you plant grain?

Take the grain in your hand, target the ground and press [E]

That's why we have this english board

Get the bananas in your hand and "give" them to the monkey. I think you need at least 4 bananas.

Oh dear. Sorry again but I'm really stuck. I want to build one of them sailraft things but I need 23 more animal skin things. But I can't see a lion on the island anywhere. There are 2 sheep but I don't want to kill them because I get cotton from them.
(I'm doing a random map)

Well, that's bad luck.
If there are no lion stones, you won't be able to build it. And I dunno wether these appear on random maps.
Build a mere dugout instead and start a bigger map next time.

Well, is it actually possible to win the game using a dugout?
It'd be hilarious.
