My Time at Portia is an open-world, action-adventure game with farming, crafting, and life-simulator elements. In the city of Portia, your life revolves around rebuilding a once fallen civilization. Reviving this world requires gathering essential materials to craft items, machines, and new buildings. Among those materials that are needed to enhance tools and weapons are Upgrade Kits.
Unlike other resources usually out in the open, Upgrade Kits can not be crafted at your Worktable or mined in the Abandoned Ruins. Portia is a massive city with countless residents and shops, so you are bound to lose your way or get confused about where you can get some items or resources. Therefore, this quick guide will tell you where you locate the Upgrade Kit and discuss its importance in crafting items.
Where Can You Get an Upgrade Kit?
The only place you can get an Upgrade Kit is at Total Tools. Total Tools is a small shop managed by Mars, one of Portia’s friendly NPCs. It may be difficult finding Total Tools at first because of how overwhelmingly big the city is.
You can spot Total Tools next to Carol’s Clothing Store and across Paulie’s Best Brother Shop. The Shop is open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM every day.
To get to this Shop automatically, click on the dot that says Total Tools on the map that marks its location, and then click Go to Mark. To get there manually, from your Workshop, walk towards the entrance of the town. Once you reach the Peach Plaza, go to the back of the Town Hall, and you will see a garden with a playground. Walk straight until you see a shop with a large Bread sign. Turn left, walk straight ahead, and you will end up in the Central Plaza, where you can easily spot the Total Tool’s sign.
Mars sells the Upgrade Kit for 240 gols each. It is costly for fledgling builders, but having it is pivotal for crafting starter tools and weapons relevant to building more items in the game.
