The following are short guides to assist the player in going up the leveling system
You will need some wood in order to continue, which requires punching a tree. Hold left click on the logs of a tree until it breaks. Walk over to the wood to pick up the wood.
In order to get planks, you can put logs in your inventory’s 2 by 2 crafting grid creating 4 planks per log.
Putting planks in a 2 by 2 formation, creates a crafting table. You can place this in the world by right clicking. Right clicking on it will open up at 3 by 3 crafting grid, allowing you to create more advanced items.
Once you craft a crafting table, you will become a Level 1 Polycrafter.
To craft a furnace, you will need cobblestone, which can be harvested by mining rocks with pick axes. Create a wooden pickaxe by first crafting a stick. Crafting a stick can be done by putting two planks vertically in a crafting menu. This can be done via crafting table or through your smaller 2 by 2 crafting grid.
Once you have created sticks, go to the crafting table and place three planks along the top row as well as two sticks down what is open in the middle column. You should see a wooden pickaxe in the output.
Equip the pickaxe and begin to harvest cobblestone. Once you gather eight cobblestone, go to the crafting table and fill out the edges of the crafting grid, leaving the center open.
Furnaces can be used to smelt ores and cook food. The bottom square of a furnace will house the fuel while the upper box is the item that is cooked or smelted.
Craft Tree Tap
A tree tap can be crafted from 5 planks placed in a v-shaped formation with a stick placed in the middle of the top row.
Once you have created a tree tap, you may attach it to a tree and it will automatically generate pellets of polyisoprene over time.(Once every 2 minutes on normal wood, once every minute on jungle wood, as jungle wood is more abundant with rubber). You may put multiple tree taps on the same side of a tree and the bottom most tree tap will produce polyisoprene at an increased rate.
Upon crafting a Tree Tap, you will be given level 2.
Craft A Machining Mill
You should spend time building new and better pickaxes as resources come to you (Stone, Iron, Diamond). Do not feel pressured to start on the Machining Mill immediately as Machining mills takes many mid-game resources to build.
To determine if you have enough resources, check how many hard metals you have. Hard metals are listed as the following:
Once you have gathered enough substantial metals (About several blocks worth of smelted ores) it is time to begin constructing a Machining Mill.
