Newbie Guide/ Mining
Hi Guys, is there an up to date Newbie guide anywhere? I'm trying to mine and I've watched some of the youtube videos but I'm rpetty stuck. For example, one video I watched had a person shoveling dirt into a chest, which I can't seem to do. And they were also breaking down stone with e pickaxe into rubble to pick up with the shovel and put in a chest, but I'm just getting the normal 4 bits of stone to carry (using an iron pickaxe). I don't want to keep posting my noob questions in the forums, but I can't seem to find a good guide anywhere! Help please? Thank you :)
I have used this so far btw, I'm just struggling getting past the very first few bits

Welcome to Eco @Debzy86 ! When it comes to 'Carried' items such as Stone/Dirt/Sand/Etc you can only carry ONE at a time (initially). I'd recommend you get a Workbench up. Craft a small wooden cart there (https://eco.gamepedia.com/Small_Wood_Cart). This will allow you to 'dump' your dirt/etc into the cart (up to its WEIGHT limit). You can then haul the cart back to your town/house and place the items into a Stockpile (https://eco.gamepedia.com/Stockpile). Inventories link to nearby crafting stations/other inventories, so I recommend you place your chests/stockpile close to your crafting tables. Use your tool on the cart (or open it manually and drag to your CARRIED slot) to move the items into a stockpile. Carrier items cannot be placed into a chest, only in a stockpile or back into the world (stacking items outside your house without a stockpile also works but the storage wont link to your crafting this way). Hope this helps!
Awesome thank you! Maybe the videos I was watching were from an older version :) Thank you for the help
