Alright items are as follows-
1 Stick, 1 Cloth (5 Fibrous Leaves you can collect them from destroying tree leaves) and Tallow (from killing Creatures)
Make a Crafting table.
Continue to make a Stone Firepit then put a Crucible on top of it to make a furnace, smelt 4 bits of Metal (Copper is probably easiest) collect Ancient Tech and make a workbench, all 4 blocks need to be put next to each other- once you build the workbench continue to input the metal and tech etc then build an extractor and do the same again by placing all 4 blocks next to each other.
Input the Fibrous leafs into the Extractor and collect the fibre from the output, put back into the workbench and make a cloth, you need 5 leafs. put the cloth a tallow and a stick into the workbench and proceed to make a basic torch
