Flares are light sources that will temporarily illuminate the area around their point of impact for ca. 90 seconds after having been thrown.
How to obtainEdit
Since November 16th 2017, each Creativerse player can now claim one free Login Chest every 4 hours (up to 2 Login Chests every 8 hours). They will randomly contain one of four possible item sets. Only the rarest Login Chests will contain 10 Flares.
Other than that, these Explosives can also be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by typing "Q" as the default key), but only after the according crafting recipe has been unlocked.
The content of Login Chests can differ, especially during event times. During Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign from October 18th 2017 to November 15th 2017, players could obtain one free Idol Login Chest every 4 hours (up to 2 Login Bundles every 8 hours). These Login Bundles only very rarely randomly contained 10 Flares.
How to unlock the crafting recipeEdit
Currently you can only obtain the crafting recipe for these throwable items by registering your e-mail-address with Playful.
You absolutely cannot unlock the crafting recipe for Flares by playing nor with the help of other players. Your fellow players can give you Flares that they have crafted themselves, but this will not unlock their crafting recipe and you can only use these Flares in the same Creativerse world where you got them (items are not transferrable between worlds).
Once you have received the crafting recipe as a gift for registering, you will find it in your crafting menu (to be opened with "q" as the default key) on all Creativerse worlds, even those that have the "Pro" option "world bound recipes" enabled.
How to craftEdit
To craft 8 Flares at a time, you'll need:
- 1 (block of) Glass made of Sand in a Forge (together with some Fuel)
- 2 Stone Rods made of Stone, Limestone or Bedrock in a Processor
- 1 Blue Flower that grows on Elderwood trees, or can be found in randomly spawning Wood Treasure Chests (on the surface in the night) or can rarely be obtained from Chizzards of most kinds, either as a loot or pet-harvest. These Flowers can easily be multiplied by placing blocks of Blue Flowers on the ground and collecting them again - now and then an additional block of Blue Flowers will be obtained
How to use Edit
Throwing a Flare will light up the area around the spot it hits for ca. 90 seconds with a blue pulsating shimmer, so you can inspect dark areas ahead without entering. It works the same way as with Scare Flares that glow with a green shimmer.
How to register Edit
When you hit "play" for the first time after installing Creativerse, a popup window with the EULA (legal agreement) will show up that you will have to accept (click on "agree").
Next you will be asked for your birthday, to check the button with a check mark and click on "OK". The last message will ask you to verify your e-mail to get an unique recipe - which means the Flare.
You can alternatively register your e-mail at a later time if you like.
If you aren't able to fill in the character @ to write your e-mail-address, then best mark it here, copy it with Strg-C and then "paste" it into the array with Strg-V.
Before update R31 fixed the problem, a bug has caused Flares to render usable objects invisible when hitting them directly - like doors, storage chests, crafting stations, teleporters and the like. As said, this bug has been fixed in the meanwhile.
