Do you use nails for the shed? Or physics and gravity are enough.
I've used nails for the floor planks. But otherwise this kind of log wall structure holds itself together merely because of basic laws of mechanics + gravity.

<t>The activity pictures were deliberately removed to make more space for other UI elements. But it is likely that the UI will be further re-arranged in future versions, so at the moment we can't say for sure if the action pictures are gone for good, or if they will be re-introduced at some point.

<r>Ah, wooden wedges tend to be single-use, as they often end up being destroyed after being hammered with the blunt end of an axe.

<t>Yes, but the wooden wedges end up being destroyed in the process. So they are make-shift use-once tools. And usually you can make them on the go, using branches and other left-over material lying around. So, my personal opinion is that considering the game playability, it would be a bit silly to ...
