Basic Information Edit
It is an improved version of the (basic) Extractor.
When to use Advanced Extractors Edit
Since it can be time consuming to find Nodes, best try to collect Obsidian Ore as soon as possible, smelt them into Bars in a Forge (with Fuel) and then craft Advanced Extractors right away. Even if the Advanced Extractors seem to be more "expensive", it is really worth while because of the much larger amount of Ore that you can collect with it then.
It would take much longer to find more Obsidian Ore Nodes and extract them with the slow Basic Extractors than to melt the double amount of Ore that is won with Advanced Extractors from each Obsidian Node and then use the "extra" Ore to craft more Advanced Extractors from.
The Super Extractor currently is the best type of Extractors in the game. You can obtain the crafting recipe for the Super Extractor solely by killing or taming (and then harvesting from) a Thing, a Creature spawning on corrupted blocks, mainly on the Corruption layer deep underground.
Obtaining Advanced Extractors Edit
Advanced Extractors can additionally to that occasionally be found in randomly spawning Iron Treasure Chests on blocks from the Lava layer underground or in Diamond Treasure Chests on corrupted blocks like those that the whole Corruption layer is made of.
Unlocking the crafting recipe Edit
Advanced Extractors can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (default key "Q"), but only after you have unlocked the according crafting recipe by crafting (or finding) at least one Basic Extractor though.
Crafting Advanced Extractors Edit
Then one Advanced Extractor each can be crafted with:
- 3 Stone Slabs made of Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor (no crafting recipe is required for that)
- 3 Obsidian Slabs made from Obsidian Bars in a Processor. Obsidian Bars are made in a Forge from Obsidian Ore that can be found in Nodes on the Fossil layer underground (like in Caves) or in the Mountains, or as an Ore in Iron Treasure Chests that spawn on rocks from the Lava layer in darkness
Using Advanced Extractors Edit
Just like basic Extractors, Advanced Extractors have to be moved into a quickslot that has to be selected. Then, by clicking the right mouse button, one Advanced Extractor of a stack can be placed on the Ore Node that your cursor points at.
Extraction times and amount Edit
How much Ore an Advanced Extractor will yield depends on the type (tier) of Ore and the type of Extractor used.
|Node||Number of Ores||Time needed|
While Extractors of any kind are at work, you'll see the Nodes "inside" getting smaller and smaller, until the Extractor will fold itself up with a clicking sound, indicating that the extraction process has finished.
Extractors cannot be removed before their extraction process is done.
The extracted Ore cannot be taken by other players (except for game-world owners, admins or mods), because the permission setting of Extractors of all kinds is set to "just me" by default (different from crafting stations and storage objects that are set to "builders" by default. By clicking on the padlock symbol when looking at a working Extractor, you can change this permission setting to allow other players to take the Ore.
When getting close to Extractors of any kind that have finished their work, you will hear a clicking sound again to remind you that there is an Extractor nearby with withdrawable Ore inside.
Extractors cannot be wired; they will automatically start extracting Ore immediately when being placed on Nodes and do not have to be activated by using any activation devices.
