The Thornbush Wall is a construction item.

How to create[]

The construction process involves using Add To Pile.png Add To Pile to create a stockpile of SenseIcon Thornbush.pngThornbushes, using Build ico.png Start Construction once you have enough thornbushes, and then using Construct ico 128.png Build to actually construct the SenseIcon ThornbushWall.png Thornbush Wall.

You need four Thornbushes on a stockpile to start building the Thornbush Wall.

The Thornbush stockpile requirement can be reduced by learning the Building (NE 01) and Building Efficiency (NE 02) neurons.

How to remove[]

The Branch Barrier and the Thornbush Wall can be removed after construction by using the Start Deconstruction and Deconstruct actions. If you use these actions, the materials used to make the construction will be lost.


Thornbushes can be used as doors in a Thornbush Walls as Hominids can move through them. This means Thornbush Walls can be constructed for defensive purposes against enemies while allowing a way to get through them.


Thornbushes can only be used for fortification. This should be taken into account when constructing defenses.MindIcon DeadBranch.pngDead Branches can be used to construct MindIcon BranchBarrier.png Branch Barriers for defense but Dead Branches can also be used as weapons to Strike ico 128.png strike and Intimidate ico 128.png intimidate enemies. Dead Branches can also be modified intoMindIcon Stick.pngSticks orSenseIcon SharpStick.pngSharpened Sticks for even more offensive power. It may be a better use of limited resources to construct Thornbush Walls for defense and save Dead Branches for the many other uses that they have.
