Crafting is an ability all players can perform in DayZ Standalone in which they may combine or transform one or more items to produce a new item or change the state of an existing one.
This process is done by having the applicable items in your inventory and dragging one of the base items over the other, in which case a menu will appear showing possible actions that item can be used in. If that combination of items can be used in multiple recipes, all of those recipes will be listed as options. An orange/yellow color around an item being dragged onto another indicates that they can be used together in some way.
Crafting Resources[edit | edit source]
These are items which can be created through crafting which are then used as part of other crafting recipes.
Clothing[edit | edit source]
- Combining Gear
- Improvised Backpacks
- Improvised Camouflage
- Leather Clothing
Spraypaint -- can be applied to weapons and individual attachments (for complete list of paintable weapons and items, see: Spraypaint).
- Leather Clothing and the Leather Sack can be crafted with a Bone Fishing Hook instead of a Leather Sewing Kit. The bone hook cannot be used as a repair kit for any item, however.
- When not equipped, some clothing items can be torn into rags. For a full list of compatible items, please see the rags article.
- Combining an item of clothing with an appropriate sewing kit will improve its condition (e.g. from "Damaged" to "Worn").

Splints -- for broken bones, fractures, sprains, etc.
Saline/Blood bags -- for replenishing blood.
- Rags and Bandages can be combined with an Alcohol Tincture to improve their condition (e.g. from "Damaged" to "Worn").

Using a Barrel[edit | edit source]
The Oil Barrel is required for a number of useful crafting recipes, allowing a player to dye clothing and convert items into other items. The barrel itself can also be converted into a Barrel with Holes, which essentially turns it into a deployable fireplace for cooking.
Dyeing Clothes[edit | edit source]
- Adding Color (Cloth)
NOTE: The items listed above are only ingredients that can be used for dyeing T-Shirts and Armbands. They must be combined in correct proportions in a barrel along with the item to be dyed. A color chart with the exact amounts of each item needed to achieve specific colors can be found here: Color Wheel by Setup & FalconRP
- Changing Color (Leather)
NOTE: The above are only examples of what is possible. For exact amounts of each ingredient needed to dye a particular piece of clothing, please visit the article for that specific clothing item.
Creating Items[edit | edit source]
NOTE: Fertilizer created using the amounts above is 10%. More of each ingredient in proportion can be used to achieve a similarly higher amount of fertilizer.
- Tanned Leather
NOTE: The above is only an example of how to tan pelts into leather. The amount of Garden Lime required will vary between pelts, and so will the number of Tanned Leather produced by each type of pelt.
Other[edit | edit source]
- Alkaline Battery 9V can be combined with various electrical devices to power them. Please visit that item's article for a list of devices which require a battery to operate.
