Note: Although the place was created on July 30th, 2009, official development of the game began around May 29th, 2015
The main objective of the game is to chop down trees, sell wood, and purchase items and equipment with money. There are vehicles to purchase and the player can buy a sawmill to increase the value of their logs (creating planks) and make them smaller to fit in your truck. There are various types of trees, each with different values and their own unique colors.
The game has controller support as well, being one of the leaders in this innovation.
As of July 24th, 2020, Lumber Tycoon 2 had accumulated over 647 million visits with an 87.352% approval rating, along with 3,356,545 favorites! It has since become a very popular game after being introduced to the Xbox One version of Roblox.
On April 15th, 2020, Defaultio updated Lumber Tycoon 2 to support mobile gameplay.
Currently, there are 6 significant biomes, and 5 other biomes.
- Main Biome
- Sand Islands
- End Times Biome
- Taiga Peak
All of these biomes contain at least one or more trees, some of which are native to that area such as the Lava Tree, Palm Tree, and Frost Tree being native to the Volcano, Sand Islands, or the Taiga Peak respectively. All of these trees can be cut down and sold for profit at the Wood Dropoff. Some trees can grow in more than one biome, such as Elm Wood, Oak Wood, and Birch Wood. The only trees to currently ignore biome restrictions are Spook Wood and Sinister Wood, which allows them to grow anywhere including rocks (surface only).
Currently, there are only seven stores in the game, each selling different items.
- Yes! – it's the Land Store, which sells plots of land.
- Wood R Us, which sells axes, sawmills, blueprints and conveyors.
- Boxed Cars, which sells vehicles.
- Fancy Furnishings, which sells more blueprints and furniture.
- Bob's Shack, which sells dynamite and Can of Worms.
- Fine Arts Shop, which sells paintings.
- Link's Logic, which sells logical stuff.
