Let’s have a look what sources we at the moment have obtainable on the map. Clay is used to make earthenware and is the only useful type of soil on the map. Peat unfortunately can’t be used as fuel, not like in actual life. On the map we now have many accessible types of stone. I marked those that are lava-proof – something that will be related later on as soon as we get to making proper use of our volcano – and famous their vanilla coloration. Within the tile pack marble and obsidian have noticably different types of constructions and furnishings than different stones. Obsidian especially looks as if a very attention-grabbing looking stone for constructions of castles and fortresses. Obsidian, followed by marble, are additionally the best worth stones on the map. Marble is a flux stone, which suggests it can be utilized as the mandatory part in the process of constructing steel and pig iron. It’s something to keep in mind, although we haven’t any supply of iron on the map so this particular utilization is likely to be limited.

Another strategy to make the most of it’s in creation of parchment. Using dfhack, we are able to find out that (not counting adamantine that we won’t be coming after for a very very long time but) there are only two ores on the map. Tetrahedrite is a supply of copper and silver. Silver is the best material for crafting blunt weapons due to its excessive density. Copper is used in many alloys, together with billon, which can be utilized to extract greater worth out of two tetrahedrite nuggets by smelting them together. Other than being a reasonably valuable materials for furnishings and decorations, billon serves no explicit perform. The one use of bismuthinite is an alloy referred to as bismuth bronze. It’s extra invaluable than common bronze however otherwise with identital properties. To make this alloy, we’d like bismuth, tin and coper, while common bronze requires only tin and copper. As we don’t have any supply of tin on the map, we’d must import it, both as tin bars or uncooked cassiterite, to be able to have some use out of it.

The unprocessed cassiterite ore will also be used as a glaze for earthenware and is likely cheaper to buy, making it the preferred option. There’s a variety of timber accessible on the map. All of them have wooden in varied shades of brown. However, the vanilla colors are usually not in line with the shades in this specific tile pack. The slight variations in shade are one thing to remember as we plan out the future aesthetics of the outpost. For now the first buildings will likely be constructed from essentially the most obtainable tree – willow – and the furnishings will probably be crafted from orange and ash wooden, as they’ve the identical coloration and will present some distinction to the lighter willow planks. Any cut down bushes will develop again ultimately on their own, they usually may also belong to embark’s initial set. Many of the trees are greatest left alone although, as they are a supply of meals and drink.

Now we have access to two sorts of tree fruits (apples, persimmons) and three forms of tree seeds (gingko seed, hazelnut, chestnut), all of which are edible uncooked and cookable. The fruits are also brewable into alcohol: persimmon wine and apple cider. Tree produce might be gathered with a stepladder in a designated plant gathering zone. The embark site comes bundles with many floor plants, and we additionally brough some non-native seeds with us, which I marked with a star on the record beneath. Caution must be taken as to not lose the non-native seeds to the cooking of the plants. From the above, barley, quinoa and finger millet may be milled into flour which has infinite shelf-life, unlike raw plants. On the subject of alcoholic beverages, our little group strongly prefers ones made from quality components. The two most useful crops that allow for brewing of their produce are at the moment not accessible to us – we’d finally look into sending an adventurer on the quest to acquire some solar berry seeds to be able to offer the very best beverages to those brave souls who resolve to rest at Adventurervault. For now, all plants we now have out there have the identical value for the purpose of brewing, except for rat weed and prickle berry which have exceptionally low quality.
