Seems like it was made with a purpose in mind.


The Wooden Potato Thing is the Shipwrecked equivalent to the Metal Potato Thing in both Sandbox Mode and Adventure Mode. It serves the same purpose as the Metal Potato Thing, and is used with the other Things on the Wooden Thing to create a portal that lets players generate a new World, deleting everything except the items in their inventory.

It spawns naturally in the world in its own Set Piece. The player will find a Drying Rack, a Fire Pit, a Skeleton, and some Rocks atop Magma Turf.

As it is an important gameplay Item, it cannot be destroyed or stolen by Mobs (e.g. Krampus, Prime Apes etc.)

  • If the player manages to find the Wooden Potato Thing Set Piece when starting in a world, this is a rather good place to take shelter. The area around is usually safe from dangers, and can even be "upgraded" to a better base.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Wooden Potato Thing is a wooden version of Maxwell's head.
  • The Wooden Potato thing is the reason the Wooden Platform Thing, when fully constructed, is more commonly referred to as the 'Teleportato'.
