What is an "Environmental Block"? Is that just any block that is found naturally...? --GauHelldragon 10:10, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
- My guess is that it is a soil? Environmental Block redirects to Biome, so that doesn't really mean anything. Not sure "Sand Blocks are special soils" is grammatically correct though. happypal (talk • contribs) 10:20, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
How much sand blocks are needed to get desert background?[edit source]
I'm going to look for the answer myself, but it will take quite some time since I have sand blocks to place.... but it's said for ebonstone and pearlstone that 200 pieces will make a biome, right now I guess 10 height x 20 width may do the trick, so I'm going to test it. If anyone know how exactly it should be done, please respond.
possible bug?[edit source]
I placed a full stack of sand (999) and used the clentaminator to change it to pearlsand. Then I mined it and found I had only 601 pearlsand... for some reason I'm missing more than 1/3 of the total.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) at 17:12, 8 July 2014 UTC
- I tested in-game (by making a pile of 999 Sand Blocks onto a row of Wood Platforms before converting them) and ended up with 996 Pearlsand Blocks. I'm not sure what happened with the 3 last ones, though I guess they were lost when the game had to calculate falling blocks + piles of drops + item stacking. However, on a second attempt I ended up with 999 Pearlsand Blocks. I'm not sure what could have caused you to lose as much as 1/3rd, but if the amount of blocks returned can be off because of failing game calculations then I assume it can be traced to the computer's performance. I may be wrong, of course. I suggest you do some further testing to see if the problem persists - if it does then it's likely a noteworthy bug. NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 02:17, 9 July 2014 (UTC)
