Starting Out[edit | edit source]


  • Put some effort into selecting where you start out.
    • Long term you will need to find large underground water sources or distill salt water with the salt works.
    • You will need access to fresh water until you research far enough to build a salt works
    • Build a water pipe to connect your still directly to the water source.
    • The end of the pipe must be underwater for this to work.
    • The water must be fresh water.
    • Build pipes in the carpenter or mason workshop.

Moving water short distances[edit | edit source]

Trench for moving water horizontally.

  • Dig a trench between the pool you want to move and a new pool.
  • Water will only flow 30 blocks without any change in height, so make the trench deeper by 1 block every 30 blocks of distance.

Moving water upwards[edit | edit source]

Placement of water pump.

  • Build a water pump and windmill and connect them with mechanisms.
  • They must be connected at the gear icon.
  • Mechanisms are built in the crafter's workshop.
  • The water pump will take water from the input and output it at the output.
  • Both input and output can be connected with pipes. The input pipe needs to be underwater for it to work.

    Completed pumping station.

Saltworks[edit | edit source]

Saltworks and pit for fresh water to collect.

  • The outlet of the saltworks should be over a pit for the created fresh water to collect. Pipes can be used to direct the output.
  • The input must be connected to salt water with pipes. The inlet has to be underwater.
  • The outlet for the saltworks should be over a pit for the created fresh water to collect.
  • If the a layer of the pit is too big, the water won't stay but simply disappear
  • 7x7 seems to work, don't go larger
