TIPS ON MINING FOR TC EFFICIENTLY:
Everyone has their own way of doing things, so these tips will be things things that I find helpful to get to those Tc blocks quickly. It doesn’t mean this is the only way or the best way, it’s just one way.
Diamond portal (To leave in the cave you’re currently mining in if you decide to go back to main base or somewhere, so you can get back to mining quickly. On a 16x world you can waste a lot of time just flying back and forth if you don’t leave a diamond portal.)
Fully upgraded trade portal (to sell titanium at and buy mining supplies)
Diamond pickaxe (self explanatory lol)
Steel or titanium Pickaxe (so you don’t waste the diamond one)
Fully upgraded tool bench (so you can make more titanium picks since they are super expensive to buy)
Electric furnace (to smelt titanium ore into ingots)
Electric metalwork bench (to make titanium blocks to sell once you find a really good trade portal, or you can sell them back at spawn)
Electric power generator (to run your benches)
Five wooden chests ( it’s easier to have separate chests for titanium ore, food supplies, and lights, plus a couple extra for whatever.)
Two safes (I keep special items in the safes, such as extra jetpacks, fuel, etc. That way I don’t have to search through my chests to find them.)
Two or three stacks of fuel (fuel lasts surprisingly well in caves, so that will be enough to last until you find titanium to sell so you can buy more.)
Three stacks of lights (Lights get used up really fast, be prepared to buy them fairly often. I prefer to buy steel lanterns as soon as I can afford them. On expert worlds there really is enough titanium to afford them if you keep an eye out as you fly through the caves. Or you can mine the platinum and sell it for lights, I do that at first until I’ve built up a good stock of titanium.)
Thirty or forty gold spades (If you mine the titanium with the gold spades you get about twice as much as using a diamond pick. Or if you mine it with gold spade and leave the last couple of hits for diamond pick, you average about three times as much as just using diamond pick. After I’ve built up a good stock I don’t bother with the gold spades anymore, since they’re more time consuming.)
Stack of coffee (self explanatory)
Gold bed(for when you don’t feel like drinking coffee)
Stack of preferred food. Bh get hungry fast in expert mode. Carrying extra food in a chest is a good idea just in case you don’t have the funds to buy it when your bh is starving.)
Never teleport or leave the server immediately after picking up chests, safes, portals, trade portals, or other items. The game may not have time to register them and they will be lost forever. Wait a few seconds so that you won’t lose them.
To avoid losing items in glitches, never carry portals or trade portals in safes or chests, keep them in your inventory. It’s too easy to lose them if your chest glitches. Don’t carry all your good stuff in the same basket, spread it out between baskets, and make sure you’re not carrying chests or safes in the same basket as your portal or your trade portal.
Grab any titanium you see, but don’t waste a lot of time digging around looking for it. You will come across enough just flying through the caves or digging your way to new caves.
Don’t try to find all the caves in any given area, that involves too much backtracking. Just keep on going, any missed caves will be found by other players later.
Mine in troll country to find yourself a good troll portal, but always carry blocks in your inventory to block off the troll, and food to restore health in case you’re hit.
Collect any gems you come across, they will be handy for upgrades.
Don’t get sidetracked by all the gold. It’s time consuming to mine and smelt, and not needed since you will find enough titanium.
Have fun finding all those Tc blocks, and don’t be afraid to use your tc at first as you’re upgrading portals etc. You will get it back quickly once you’re fully equipped to mine effectively.
Keep an eye on your fuel and your hunger bar.
Keep bh in trade portals unless you’re actively using them at the time. They die too quickly when left unattended.
