The Digging Molecart is a Minecart variant that automatically digs a tunnel and lays down Minecart Tracks. It is sold by the Zoologist for 50 once the Bestiary is 60% completed (314 entries).

Once mounted on existing tracks, the Molecart moves forward with a maximum speed of 31 mph, 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 Digging Molecart in use.
The Digging Molecart in use.
  • The user must have a pickaxe or drill in their inventory and the tool with the highest mining level will be used.
  • The Digging Molecart can be used to bypass the Creative Shock debuff.
  • The rider must have Minecart Tracks in their inventory to place tracks.
  • 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. This effect has not been fully tested yet.
  • The Molecart will not function unless it is in the underground biome or below.
  • The Molecart cannot break storage items with items in them, or the two blocks directly underneath a storage item.
    • It can break chests that have no items, but can never break the blocks underneath chests unless the chest is already removed.

Tips[edit | edit source]

The Digging Molecart can be very helpful when constructing underground arenas such as in the Underground Jungle. Starting a new track of rails four tiles down from your last track will clear out the old one as you lay the new one.

History[edit | edit source]
