Building Type

The head effigy, also known as the simple effigy, was a building and effigy that consisted of a few rocks, a stick pole and a head. It was added in update v0.03 though was replaced by the custom effigy in update v0.25. It is possible that this effigy was too cheap so it was removed for balance reasons, or it didn't have much of a purpose or just to allow room for the custom effigy.

It is possible to spawn the head effigy using console commands: PlaceBuiltObjects EffigyHead 1. It doesn't allow you to choose where you can place it however.


  • The head effigy may have been the simple effigy. The simple effigy appears to be the small effigy in the survival guide image, though the names and images may have changed during its time in the game.
