Where to find iron?

Recommended Posts

frustrating,  isn't it?  What will happen   is someone  else will find it and  block others  from mining it.

Hopefully  they  will revise their thinking and  take  issues like this  into  consideration to save the game.

This might be a bug though, because we've had a lot of feedback saying they can't fond ANY. Could you please provide us with a savegame from one of these ironless Exploration maps?

There seems to be at least some ores in local world games it seems, where in sharedworld games we weren't finding any other than coal. Since it's a sharedworld game I don't really know how to share the world. The other worlds have some ores... but still no iron, and even then the ores they do have are only in the caves, still not that many veins of it, and little to no surface ore. I was finding some veins of marble and sulfpur in a threat one world in the world I attached here, that's about it. I feel as though ore generation spawn needs a tweaking overall and honestly it would be nice to see more islands even further out and overall bigger map, so it's not like a "ring" of islands around the beginner island.

Ylands Save - I actually just made the world now, so issue still persistent.. though right now in a sharedgame world with friends we haven't found ANY ore other than coal.

 

- As a side question, are sharks gone? There seems to be a lack of sharks so I figure they've been removed.

They're taking a holiday.  You know, backpacking across Europe and such.  😀

Actually, they're out while they have their AI redesigned.  From what I remember BI saying, I would expect them back next year some time, or whenever we get the new water simulation.  They will be back and they will be more dangerous.

But will they still fly?

Ive played 3 local singleplayer worlds. Explored 3 plus island on each and all caves. I have found NO iron at all. This is game breaking

I think it's not just the iron, but the resources in general.  I found zirconium before I found copper (both in the caves of the tier-3 island).  Maybe there's some on the other islands, but I never saw it.

On top of that, I think it would be best to have an alternate type of explore map specifically for the public servers.  These are great, and fun for 1 player or just a few friends, but once we have large numbers logging on to play, the map will be destroyed in no time.

the current   map i  am on is  socially  dead ...  there were 8 payers  consistently  during the first  day ..all were  asking  " where  can i find" ... iron  etc  .

I discovered  clay and   took enough  for  my  immediate needs ...came back an hour  later  and found the  lot   removed -- by possibly  one player, and others  asking  where   could they find it.

i also  went to an  island and  found  no caves ..  used  freecamera to locate them and  then  couldn't  find the   entrance...someone had  filled it in to hide it 

went back to spawn and there's no more flint  for    fire starting   or  stones to make  basic  tools ...so  bodies   just piling up.

after  one day with a full server,   today i was the only one   active    for  3  hours.

Hopefully   with the release of 1.0  the   whizzkid scripters  etc    of  P1  can create maps that overcome these issues ... but the problem  is   when you make something  foolproof,  a long  comes a bigger  better  fool...

You can address this in editor. But you have to know that you can. And you have to know how.  The kid who gets this game for Christmas and just fires it up, is going to get disillusioned real fast. And is going to give s bad review and tell all his friends not to waste their time.
