Of course, there are tons of variations available to you, especially after you have done some collecting during the storyline. You can practically create anything from these materials, but first, let's go over the Capture Object feature:

This allows you to save something that you have created so that you can use it again - whenever you might need it. Capturing objects places them into the ‘My Objects screen'.

It's possible to share these objects with your friends. Simply press Square and the game will tell you all about the possibilities.
