Ore pan


#1

Instead of mining all day, there’s this alternative:

Craft bench lvl 2:
Ore Pan
Find Gold In Rivers!
5 iron ingots

In a body of water that has at least 10 blocks of water in it, you can tap in the water to sieve it. It takes an initial 5 second to sieve an ore, and then one of these happens.

You get one of the following:
Stone, dirt, copper ore, tin ore, iron ore.

OR

It keeps sieving for an extra 5 seconds and you get: gold, platinum, titanium ores.

You can sieve 100 times before it decays and you have to craft a new one.


Do any suggestions go through?+ the Suggestion shoutout thread

Shouldn’t there be a chance of getting nothing? You don’t always find something in a sieve.


#3

Yeah. But instead of nothing, you get dirt or stone. Which pretty much amounts to nothing.


#4

In certain cases dirt and stone could be worth a lot.


#5

So like a non-electric sluice, but for pure water?


#6

Not really.


#7

That was my thought too.


#8

You could say that.


#9

Only dodo eggs, as far as I know.
(Because they turn into higher tiers)
Other than that, they’re really cheap.


#10

nice idea!


#11

In my opinion, you should get dust instead of ore and have to make the dust into the ores. Maybe 3 dust for one ore?


#12

Maybe 3 dust for common ores and 2 dust for the rarer ones to make it a little easier to get gold and such.


#13

That would make it easier to get rare ore yes, but doesn’t that kind of take away the rareness of it?


#14

Yeah, that’s the issue. It just seems that 3 dust for one ore seems a little low, maybe heighten rarity for it all and do 2.
