Towercaps are giant mushrooms the size of Trees, and for most purposes function like them. They are cultivated in Treeplanter's Pots, and then planted in the ground. However, unlike normal trees, they must be planted in Caves and give no sticks, bark, or boughs. Towercaps require 3x or more the growth time of other trees. This is likely due to Towercaps using the same growth time as other trees, but because caves do not count as forest biome they will always grow as if they weren't planted in a forest.
Towercaps work as minesupports. They develop a support radius gradually as they grow up, and have, when fully grown, the radius of 9 tiles.
Caution: Chopping towercap will immediately cause a cave-in to occur if they have prevented a cave in, even if all tiles are supported by other supports.
The Towercap is one of the many Trees found in the Hearthlands. Trees are a plentiful resource and they are vital to every player's success.
Some of the most basic materials a hearthling will require such as Boards, Wood Blocks, Boughs, and Branches are only obtained from Trees.
Every tree has some sort of Seed which the player can use in various recipes, or they can be used to regrow a higher quality tree, producing better materials.
The Towercap produces:
- You may harvest up to 0 Branches before it is depleted.
- You may harvest up to 0 Bark before it is depleted.
- You may harvest up to 12 Towercap Spore before it is depleted.
All Trees will slowly replenish harvested materials, meaning all materials listed above are renewable.
Towercaps produce 3 logs when felled.
- Each log produces 37 Blocks when cut with a Stone Axe and 46 Blocks when cut with a Metal Axe
- Each log produces 11 Boards when cut with a Bone Saw and 19 Boards when cut with a Metal Saw
How to Acquire
Every Tree can be grown from its seed using a Treeplanter's Pot, or by planting the seed directly into the ground.
