Thread: What material is this?

  1. #1

    What material is this?

    While spelunking, I came across a material that I couldn't mine with any of my picks (copper, iron, tungsten, cobalt or gold). What material is it, and what pick is needed to mine it?

    That's Carborundum Ore - you need a Titanium Pickaxe to mine that - it's an end game ore.

    The current list is - with the bold versions needed to mine the next tier of materials:


    The second attachment I couldn't view.

    I fixed the picture now.

    The second one is Meteorite I believe.

    Yup, it definitely is. Couldn't mine it with a tungsten pick, but a thorium pick worked fine. Haven't yet seen titanium, mythril or protonium ores yet. Once I have, I was going to throw together a list of what ores look like what.

    Wow you've been busy digging Zhang, quite impressed you actually found these as it's a bit gruelling mining so deep without the caves in the game.

    Bear in mind that the ore textures and materials that are currently in game are currently placeholder. I am working on their look at the moment and will be updating soon.

    Thanks Mike! I'll hold off until I know that they are final(ish).

    Hints for others digging deep:
    • Start from somewhere near water so you have less terrain to dig through.
    • Dig a vertical shaft of about 27 layers at a time. That's about 9 digging attempts.
    • Offset your shaft after 27 layers, otherwise the fall detection is likely to spawn you topside again.
    • Make sure you have enough wood to make suitable picks as you go, you'll want to upgrade to increase your digging speed.
    • When you hit bottom, you'll find a layer of material that is much harder to dig. You can dig through and use it as a fast return to the topside.

    Hi! It's been a long time since I played cardlife, and I have plans to play it later today because in Korea, it's morning. I was wondering if you could share a set of pictures that show all of the different types of ores. I've never actually found ores before, just sand, dirt, wood, and stone.

    It's your lucky day then! I've put together the ores I have seen in this post.
