Trees & BushesEdit
Trees and bushes must be planted on fertile ground. They may appear on snow, but cannot be planted there. Trees need to be planted with 4 tiles space either side, however bushes can be planted next to trees.
When a crop is fully grown, it stops producing until harvested manually, or by the Farmer or a farmer bot. Fields (but not hydroponics) can have fertilizer added which increases growth speed by four times until used up. Fields can be harvested only from the Farm, and Hydroponics can be harvested from the Bunker Farm.
All animals, except pigs and cows, can have a fin modifier applied to them in the Vine Copse or the Talon Copse to halve the time required for them to produce.
The pen is used for housing animals and can be harvested directly from the pen or from the barn. On the starter island, the farmer will automatically harvest the farm for you. Pens will also be harvested by farmer bots. It costs 8 wood to build from the pen blueprint, and must be placed on the surface. Pens can be harvested from the Farm, but they are the only kind of pen that can be.
Wyrm Pens (Cages) are used to harvest materials from familiars. The first pen is built by the alchemist to keep Wyrms (hence the name), but later in the game, other familiars can be kept in cages as well. The original pen is auto-harvested by the alchemist, while all others must be harvested manually. The alchemist will build you a second pen on the Eastern Island.
All cages have a capacity of 2 familiars, except for the pen in the crashed ship where you find the Diode Wolf, which only holds 1. You can build additional Wyrm Pens from a blueprint, which requires 10 Steel Bars to build.
Wyrm Pens will not connect to a regular Farm, but they will connect to a Coral Farm.
You can also add Chickens, Pigs, Cows, and Spiders to the Wyrm Pens.
The Coral Pen is used for harvesting materials from magical familiars. The Coral Pen isn't found anywhere in the world and cannot be built from quests, but needs to be planted with a Coral Pen Seed. You get Coral Pen Seeds from the Fish Merchant's shop after completing his quest.
The Coral Pen can be planted underwater.
The Coral Pen will not connect to the regular Farm, but it will connect to a Coral Farm.
You can also add Golems, Gold Golems, Amethyst Golems, Amethyst Wyrms and Magnewyrms to the Coral Pen.
