Help Gaining Mechanical Points?

I am having trouble gaining mechanical points! I am still on the first island, and have gathered a lot of stuff. Every time I think I am going to gain a Mechanical skill point, I earn a Body skill point. No tools are available for me to make,as I have already made the basic tools and therefore have 1 mechanical skill, however I need 1 more to get off the island, please help me!!!

You can also build the fireplaces and build fire to get some mechanical points.

Here's an easier way

During gameplay enter this cheat code:

R1, L1, Dpad down, square, L2
(Dpad means the arrow keys on your controller)

Then a cheat gnome should pop up.

After it pops up enter this code:

Triangle, L1, L1, Dpad left, triangle

Now go up to the gnome and it should have an option saying "and 1 skill point" or something like that. Just add one skill point over and over. --glad to help

Guest answered:

No you guys are all wrong....... if you use codes... your not beating the game your skipping the cool parts....... just keep building the emergency fire over and over.......... you'll get the Mechanical skill point sooner or later like i did............

I can't build any huts even though I had the plan but now the plan is not there

Guest answered:

Umm, all I did was keep building stuff from plans and ideas and I just keep gettin' points.
I don't like cheating with that whatever-you-call-it cheat gnome. Smile But if I'm TOTALLY stuck at something, I guess I have no choice. :|
