Tree sap is used to create epoxy for high-tier crafting in Icarus. Here’s how to make it.
Need to craft some Icarus tree sap but don’t know how? There’s quite a lot of stuff on the Icarus tech tree, and it can be difficult to tell exactly what every item does. So when you see a recipe that includes tree sap, it’s not entirely clear how to find or make the sticky stuff. Tree sap is an ingredient for crafting epoxy, which is important for upper-tier crafting recipes like a machining bench—the item you use to make guns, armor, and steel tools. Yep, you need tree blood in order to make military equipment. But where do you find it?
Trees are a sensible guess, and there’s no shortage of trees in Icarus. But it’s not quite the answer. Below we’ll explain exactly where to find tree sap, and what you’ll need to craft a whole bunch of it.
First you’re going to need a crafting bench, which means being at least level 10 and having a spare blueprint point to unlock it. You’ll find the crafting bench at the start of the Tier 2 tech tree. To build it you’ll need 12 fiber, 20 sticks, 50 wood, and 12 stone.
With the crafting bench built and placed, you’ll need to unlock the mortar and pestle, which you’ll also find on the Tier 2 tech tree. This is the item you need to make tree sap, and you’ll see on the top half of the list, just past the potbelly stove and cooking station. Unlock the mortar and pestle with a blueprint point, and build it at the crafting bench with 4 silica ore and 12 stone. Take it from the device inventory and put it in your inventory or hotbar slot.
Next, place the mortar and pestle somewhere—nicely, it can be placed on a lot of stuff you may already have set up, like the top of your storage crate. You can even place it right on top of the crafting bench if you want.
Interact with the mortar and pestle and you’ll see tree sap in the recipe list. It requires 4 sticks, which you probably already have in your inventory. Craft tree sap and it’ll appear in the mortar and pestle device inventory so you can use it in any recipes that require it, like epoxy.
At some point you may need to mass produce tree sap, and you probably don’t want to spend all your time running around picking up sticks off the ground or hoping you get enough while chopping down trees. No worries, you won’t need to. Spend a blueprint point to unlock the carpentry bench and craft it with 80 wood, 12 rope, and 120 copper nails. At the carpentry bench you can take wood you’ve harvested and turn it into sticks. Then turn those sticks into tree sap.

He’s also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.

Rockstar Games Angers Red Dead Redemption 2 Fans With New Red Dead Online Update – ComicBook.com
By Tyler Fischer – January 18, 2022 06:11 pm EST
Red Dead Online players have been upset with Rockstar Games for months due to not only the lackluster support of Red Dead Redemption 2’s online mode, but the lack of communication from Rockstar in regards to the game. At the start of the month, this frustration bubbled up and #SaveRedDeadOnline began to trend on Twitter. Since then, it’s randomly trended several times and fans pushing the campaign have dominated the replies of any and all tweets from Rockstar Games. And today’s tweet about the new Red Dead Online update has been no exception.
Right on schedule, today, Rockstar Games revealed and released a weekly update for Red Dead Online. And like every weekly update for months, it’s an underwhelming one that is hardly worth promoting, especially during a Twitter campaign against the game that takes umbrage with the lack of compelling updates. Again, the Twitter campaign also takes issue with the lack of communication from Rockstar Games, who has yet to say a word about any of the recent backlash. So, to the surprise of nobody, the tweet about today’s update has caught the ire of fans.
This week, completing any Blood Money Opportunity with a Persistent Posse in tow will land you a Reward for 25 Capitale within 72 hours of completion.

“How about you actually respond to your entire community instead of posting this and acting like you don’t see it,” reads one popular reply to the tweet. “We don’t need announcements on these terrible event weeks. We want new stuff to buy and new content, your guys’ lack of communication is so sad, to be honest.”
Bruh, i think the Red Dead Online community are after something else, idk, maybe check your mentions?
This isn’t the first time Red Dead Online fans have protested on Twitter over the state of the game, however, it is, by far, the biggest and most prolonged protest. Yet, so far, it seems to be falling on deaf ears.
As always, we will keep you updated. If Rockstar Games responds to the ongoing campaign or announces anything noteworthy for Red Dead Online that could satiate the backlash, we will update you with everything you need to know. In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment or two letting us know what you think or, alternatively, hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ to talk all things gaming. What do you think about the current state of Red Dead Online and do you think Rockstar Games will attempt to salvage it?
