They are still releasing updates with building content and right now they have over 100 different parts for you to play with. You can learn to craft by experimenting or use crafting guides to learn more complex recipes. 

Join clans for help building your base or just to have a few friends in case something goes down. It is PvP, but there are benefits to knowing someone has your back. Your base is also open to anyone, meaning they can repair things, open or close doors and power up or down generators, but only clan members can actually make changes to your base.

You can chose to help or harm, save or kill. There is no right or wrong, only what you must do to survive.
