This game is very detailed and it shows plants’ health when someone tries to destroy them. There are various non-playable characters in the game who are related to specific activities. Follow the points to unlock the recipe for crafting a scarecrow:

  • Go to the visitor’s site and meet Franklyn. He is one of the NPCs who visit your island early in the game. Franklyn is a scientist who invents items in exchange for Shiny Discs.
  • Complete his requests to make him a permanent resident of your island.
  • Find as many shiny discs as possible using a Metal Detector because they are found buried under the ground.
  • To unlock Metal Detector for purchase at John’s Goods, you will need a Metal Detector License.
  • Unlock the recipe for Scarecrow at Franklyn’s in exchange for Shiny Discs.
  • The recipe appears randomly in form of blueprints on Franklyn’s table.
  • Once unlocked, go into the woods to cut down some trees to convert them into gum logs.
  • Go to Rayne’s and purchase Pumpkin’s seed to farm it.
  • Head to the rainforest and collect some Spinifex Tufts.
  • Now craft a Scarecrow using a Crafting Bench by processing 1x Pumpkin, 2x Gum Logs, and 8x Spinifex Tufts.
  • The scarecrow is now available in your inventory.
