Sorry black thunder that link is kinda old.....
1: How do i get logs?
First CHOP THE LEAVES off the tree to get seeds... Then go up to the tree make sure you have axe equipped and tree is highlighted (green).
Swing your axe at tree a few times to fell it (usually 5-10 depending on skill)
TIMBERRRR (notice it turns yellow)
Once tree is on the ground you have to skin all branches and TOP of tree off they will each highlight when you hover over them in a red color.
Once you have the giant log trunk of the tree on the ground then you have to use your axe and chop the tree into smaller bits.
DON'T make them too small you can pick up a relatively large piece of wood, you know when its able to be picked up when that piece is green. Then pick E to pick up!
2: How do I farm?
You need to craft a FARMERS TABLE from a workbench. In game model is a chest just cause it's a placeholder
3: What constitutes a "room"?
A "room" I have noticed is a structure that has more than 9 blocks of "air" inside of it with a maximum of 2 openings. AKA "door" So you can build a 5x5 square of walls... but most workstations require 10 spaces of "volume so you have to make it 5x6 someway.
4: Is there a different inventory from the backpack?
Carrying inventory, 1-0 inventory backpack and then chests in game
5: What are the controls?
WASDE is your main and then theres the beloved /unstuck command (this part is still semi up to date on the wiki)
