Ability to create pools of water anywhere

I searched the forums and could not find that anyone has requested this feature yet.

I built a home on top of a mountainous area and I constantly have to travel back and forth to a source of
water to farm cotton ,etc.

I wish that I could goto the water, collect it, and then be able to create my own lake or pond somewhere else.

Thanks.

Re: Ability to create pools of water anywhere

I can definitely support this request.
I had a home though not in the mountains it was far away from any water source, and it would have been extremely helpful if you could either create a canal from the ocean or an enterely new water source. My character lost 20 lbs within a day.

Well I just found out that if you dig just below the water level, the water will fill the area that was dug out and would allow a canal to be created.

Yes but the water in the canal does not support farm land. It will flood the area or create a waterfall if you dig further down, but will not be counted as a source of water. you still have to use a bucket to get water if you want to create farm land more than 3 squares from the original water source.

Re: Ability to create pools of water anywhere

I… am not sure what you are asking? A bucket places a new water source. Two water sources placed with a one block empty space between them will create a third source, resulting in an infinite source of water. This can be used to make artificial lakes.


I use a Vultr VPS (shameless referrer link).

Re: Ability to create pools of water anywhere

I see, now, from the wiki (http://wiki.voxelands.com/tools#buckets) that buckets allow the digging of liquid blocks (ie water) and can be transported to other locations.

But will the placed water be usable for farming?

Re: Ability to create pools of water anywhere

I didn't know about the solution you mensioned, Menche. But it completely fulfils the purpose for me.

And yes, placed water supports farmland. It is only flowing water due to the shape of the landscape that doesn't.

Maybe a mod can change the title of the post -- the feature has already been implemented...

Where is this feature?

You have to craft a bucket which can then be used to collect water and then transport it somewhere.
http://wiki.voxelands.com/tools#buckets

You would need to create a craft guide to see all of the recipes -- you need four sticks to make it.
To make sticks you would need to collect leaves and then use the craft system (with the leaves in the middle square)
