What research you tend to prioritize in your first season in preparation for winter?
Research Tips and Tricks
Construction basics, tailoring and metal refinement should be your priority. Weapons are an option, but depends how lucky you are with salvaging from the ship debris.
Make sure you make some warm coats and beanies before the winter and that your stockpiles are under a shelter/roof to make it last a bit longer.
To keep a good source of food, make sure you have set your work activities and have someone dedicated to cooking. I tend to have one of my survivors just spend time on cooking, farming and delivering. And ‘until 10’ for each food source I can make.
Look for plants to research so you can create farms as soon as possible. This includes tree farms.
