Terrain modification on mobile

Question

Posted (edited)

Installed the game on android and can't dig. I pick up a pickaxe or a shovel and show a warning: "Changing the terrain is not allowed." Maybe someone knows what the problem is?

Are you playing on Exploration mode?

Certain maps have interactable terrain while others, do not.

I play in exploration mode, but I can’t dig in sandbox mode either, on different islands, I tried everything and I can’t dig anywhere. Shows the same message

Unfortunately, to my best knowledge, it is impossible to modify the terrain in any way in the current mobile version of Ylands. 

So not a bug but a missing feature.

How then in the mobile version to get sand for craft?

I believe you can get sandstone chunks from caves in the arid biom, then break those in your inventory to get sand.

I can't think of another way on mobile, other than maybe an NPC merchant.

I tried to make sand out of sandstone, but in the crafting section there are only blocks, but how else can you get sand in the game?

Nice! You got some :)

Select the sandstone chunk in your inventory.  Click the eye icon to inspect the item and select break. It should give you 5 sand per chunk.

Thanks a lot for the advice dude, it works

Tree stumps drop dirt and palm trees on beaches drop sand when destroyed, so you could farm these as renewable resource.
