Just a couple ways to automate your pearl harvesting.
are pearl oysters able to be picked up to your inventory like that in survival?
Indeed they are. You can find them on the ocean floor.
Was just checking incase you couldn't pickaxe them or something to pick them up
You have to break the block below them for them to drop
I just beat em with a pick and got em, others on the server have done the same. (Monster 1.0.9)
Really? did that change recently? I swear when I last tried collecting one with a pick it was just destroyed...
awesome, I was already wondering if you could automate this.
now makes me itching to try and do a build of this aswell
They are breakable with picks(always have been), but take a significant amount of time, as said one of the quickest/easiest ways to collect them is to break the block underneath. It's even easier with a bucket though, Just stand on top of them, look at any block except the oyster itself and right click the bucket, it'll remove the water quickly and also drop the oyster .
I took the idea of the automation of oysters, and tried to do a build of my own, ofcourse trying to make a build that's compact, cheap and efficient.
what I came up with is this
this build is done using the transfer nodes from Extra Utilities
there's 1 chest with a normal transfer node extracting sand as an input
the sand is then carried through pipes to the oysters
12 in total, 1 for each color with a colored pearl block beneath them
the second chest has a retrieval node, with an inverted item filter set to ignore sand
with a result of this
Does anyone manage doing the same with no mods but mariculture ?
So just chests, hoppers and oysters?
