The Digging Molecart is a Minecart variant that automatically digs a tunnel and lays down Minecart Track. It is sold by the Zoologist for 500000*50 once the Bestiary is 60% completed.

Once mounted on existing tracks, the Molecart moves forward at a slow rate, digging out a tunnel five blocks high and laying track as it goes. The cart will only move and place tracks horizontally, even if it is started on a diagonal slope.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The rider must have a pickaxe or drill in their inventory. The tool with the highest mining level will be used.
  • The Digging Molecart can be used to bypass the Creative Shock debuff. However, the placed rails cannot be broken.
  • The Molecart can break the Eternia Crystal Stand.
  • The rider must have Minecart Tracks in their inventory.
  • The Digging Molecart cannot dig falling blocks such as sand, silt, or slush.
    • The Digging Molecart will dig falling blocks in the falling state. Mining the blocks with a pickaxe or drill while riding will allow The Digging Molecart to get under the falling blocks. The falling blocks will inflict damage and be collected.Verify
  • The Molecart will not function unless it's below the Surface.
  • The Molecart cannot break chests with items in them, or the 2 blocks directly underneath a chest.
    • It can break chests that have no items, but cannot break the blocks underneath chests, regardless of whether they have items in them or not.
