    Hi, I’m fairly new to the forum, but I’ve been reading and getting lots of good information. My question is about transistors. I have a few stacks and I’m wondering if they are worth collecting/hoarding or if they’re worthless after you build the CB radio. So far I haven’t seen many if any uses for them.

    They can be needed in the future but it's not that important. I've a chest full it and I've stopped collecting it for now.

    There are so many things that for now are pretty much useless, but in the future who knows.

    I think that is an intentional part of the game, gambling on what to hoard and what to stop collecting (when storage space is short obviously).

    Apart from the stuff that gets continually used like wood and food, I'm mostly only bothering with things that might be useful to the electronics bench when it becomes available (but I do already have full boxes of other stuff that I've stopped collecting).

    I am hording a crate full of everything - including transistors. Maybe they change a blueprint for something in the future so that its suddenly craftable and uses previously useless stuff...

    I have a row of everything, I wouldn't bother with a full crate. These things are so abundant that I'll just find more if they introduce something that uses them. A row is plenty, for example during Christmas we finally got a use for light bulbs. One row of those was more than enough. I would hate to see how much you dealt with doing a crate of light bulbs for that event.

    Cool! I guess I’ll hold onto the ones I’ve got and leave collecting more to sometime in the distant future

    Agreed. Afull crate of everything will make way too big of a base. Gotta think about what you can keep safe in terms of walls. I don’t think it was intended to have a million chests being protected

    In a weird way, I'm glad Kefir removed bunkers and other bases as storage sites -- it forced me to be much more careful about what to hoard. I still have a full chest each of bearings, transistors, wire, etc., but that's my limit. I hoard SWAT and tac armor, but only a set or two of level 2 to reinforce -- that's my daily set. All that stuff is inside triple lvl 3 walls, so I'm okay. And having built all my walls means I don't need to keep as much stone and pine on hand -- just a chest for each.

    Like everyone else said, they're pretty common and you have to gamble on what to keep. Everything in the game right now may be used heavily in the future. They got rid of the items that they'd never use a while back when they added the trash item.

    Here's a list of the rarity of components found in chests imo:

    camera - very rare
    engine part - very rare (only air drops and bunker crates) can you find these in red zone?

    usb drive - rare
    cracked phone - rare
    gold bar - rare

    lightbulb - semi rare
    cigarettes - semi rare
    gold watch - semi rare

    rubber parts - uncommon
    duct tape - uncommon
    batteries - uncommon

    transistors - common
    ball bearing - common
    bolts - common

    like the color coding? :p


    you can also find signal amplifiers and radio dishes but I consider these more like vehicle parts. If you have the room, I'd save 3-4 dishes and 1-2 amplifiers for radio tower when Kefir finally releases. There's 3 dishes in the current artwork but I could see 4 needed too.
