|A key to a door, created from a Lock.|
A Door Key costs 25 Wood per key to make. It allows the bearer of the key to open, close, lock and unlock the Door. The door must be unlocked or the player must have a matching key to create a duplicate. Door keys from one door cannot be used on another. The player creates a door key by going up to a Key Lock (without an existing key in the world already) and presses the "E" key (by default) on the lock. This creates a Door Key instantly unless there is already an existing key.
How to use Edit
Door keys must be carefully safeguarded so other players cannot gain access to your building via the door. You should make two keys for your main door. The first key is kept inside the base in a safe location. This allows for new copies of your key to be made if the second key is permanently lost or you wish to make a copy for a friend. The second key is placed in a Small Stash or Wood Storage Box in a bush, crevasse, or other hidden area outside your building. Once you return to your building, check that you haven't been followed and retrieve your Door Key for re-entry. Be sure to create a Sleeping Bag inside your building before attempting this strategy in the case the second key is misplaced or destroyed.
