Your villagers can collect resources and use them to craft better items. We’ll show you everything you need to know in our Virtual Villagers: Origins 2 crafting guide!

How to Craft All Items in Virtual Villagers: Origins 2

Before you can craft, you’ll need to collect basic resources. These resources must be collected from specific spots on the island, and we’ll show you all of them here.
