Warps : What good when you have other links?

Postby Monkeychow01 » Thu Dec 28, 2017 10:06 am

Question on Warps for anyone.

Once you have the Refinery link and the Market link, what good are warps?

Early game...sure. You don't have enough resources for refinery links and market links to make it easy to transport what you need back to your farm. But very quickly you can get the resources needed for the links, and I'm trying to figure out what use the Warps are at that point?

Anyone have any other uses (yes could be silos, but I have full silos too of everything).

Refinery and market links are good, but warps must be used to move from area to area for efficient resource harvesting.

Can you elaborate? What resources are you using in different areas that you can't just use a refinery and market for?

warp pads for me are mainly used to streamline my routines and knit areas closer together. i have a set of 3 for each of the extractors so i can harvest them roughly at the same time so they'll be ready at the same time for the next round. and a similar setup in the glass desert for those resources, coupled with refinery links, to collect from all extractors in one lap. also doubling to make it easy to get home from any part of the desert. plus just typical quick-access to areas if i ever need to pop in for some resources for the range exchange or overhauling my ranch. got a pair connecting my main ranch to the ruins for echo collection, another connecting the end of the moss blanket to the end of the indigo quarry; which has been vital to my rounds for collecting the slime ornaments, easily getting over 20 per in-game day and still getting Bea to bed at a decent hour for the next day. not to mention its usefulness for farming gold plorts. i've gotten over 50 just from them happening to run into food on their own. half the time i don't even bother with them since i already have my refinery full on them. then a gold warp just to make things a bit easier to get back up from the end part of the desert to streamline my ginger runs a bit. and lastly a couple to stitch my ranch a bit tighter for my non-holiday routine. my warp depots are either mini-silos for the sake of hoarding resources that didn't quite need a whole silo, or otherwise utilized to bring all excess food to my mass of pink slimes at the retreat. my ranch setup depends on the use of market/refinery links, as well as warp pads/depots.

Area-specific resources such as honey, indigonium and spiral steam.

Cool deal. I get the extra "transport". I recently ran into the same thing where I'm trying to finish putting 100 roosteros into a silo on Ogden's farm, but didn't feel like warping back and forth there - so hence warp. Or just an extra spot to collect like Guilded Gingers, or bringing MORE food for slimes. That makes them worth it for that reason :)

Wasn't thinking past doing it for just harvesting purposes - since you can very easily buy Refineries and Markets and put them everywhere.

Thanks everyone!
