In this video I cover a simple way to get to the mine in the game, because finding the mine location is crucial in order to advance by gathering certain material. I’ll go through how you mine so you can smelt them down into ingots.
Be aware that there are continual changes, it is an early access game. For instance no longer can you find brass ore, you have to mine zinc, and copper, and smelt it down in 8 copper/4 zinc giving 1 brass. Fairly tough!
