Lakes are small water sources found in the Forest. There are a total of 11 [verify] of them in the Forest. While in a lake, the thirst bar will fill, but the player will lose oxygen, and also has increased cold reduction. The oxygen loss and cold reduction can be averted by standing on a bridge placed on the lake. The same effects are received in the Ocean and River.


Being in the water makes the cold bar decrease faster, and if you pair that with the cold reduction you get at the night, it can be annoying to get water in the night unless you have bottles. Make sure to not spend too long in a lake, since you will run out of oxygen/cold and take damage. To fill your thirst bar while keeping warm, it is recommended to place a bridge on the lake and put a campfire on it. Now you have a campfire on the lake, go on the platform, and this makes it so that both your cold and thirst bars fill up. Another option is to place a campfire on the edge of the lake and then go into the lake while staying in the fire's radius. This method however, will not prevent oxygen loss.


Oases (singular: Oasis) are found in the Desert and function identically to Lakes. There are ?? Oases in the Desert. These allow players in the Desert to have a renewable water source and allows for the creation of permanent bases in the Desert.
