This page offers a guide on how to make the "Basic Planting Kit" iconBasic Planting Kit, which is required for farming in My Time at Sandrock.

The Basic Planting Kit is used for farming.

How to Unlock the Basic Planting Kit

Before you can farm, you’ll first need to unlock the recipe to make the Basic Planting Kit. You’ll get the recipe in the mail from "Zeke" iconZeke the day after you complete Moisture Farm Blues.

The Basic Planting Kit recipe.

How to Make Copper Sticks

Copper Sticks can either be obtained by recycling "Copper Scrap" iconCopper Scraps, or you can also use a "Processor" iconProcessor to make Copper Sticks using "Copper Bars" iconCopper Bars. You’ll need 2 Copper Bars for every 1 Copper Stick, so for 3 sticks you’ll need x6 Copper Bars (x24 Copper Ore).

How to Get Copper Ore

Copper Ore is the most abundant ore in the mines. It can be found on the first level of the Abandoned Ruins and you’ll be able to get hundreds of the stuff in no time. You’ll get the most Copper Ore from mining big Copper Crystals found in the mines, but you’ll also get some ore from clearing the blue-brown debris that blocks your path.

Copper Ore is found on every level of the Abandoned Ruins.

How to Make Bronze Bars

"Bronze Bars" iconBronze Bars can be made in the "Furnace" iconFurnace with x3 Copper Ore and x2 Tin Ore. You’ll need to build a furnace before you can forge Bronze Bars yourself! If you’re making all 10 Bronze Bars, you’ll need x30 Copper Ore and x20 Tin Ore.

The main way obtain these materials is to mine them in "Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins" iconEufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins. Copper Ore is found on every level and is easily collected.

Tin Ore can only be found in the mines once you’ve reached and unlocked at least the 3rd level of the Abandoned Ruins. To get to deeper levels of the mine, you need to search for door ways and holes downwards - most of the time they’ll be hidden behind depris so you’ll need to dig through it. It can be mined from silver spikey crystals. Once you’re at levels lower than the 3rd level, tin ore is very common and easy to mine.

Alternatively, if you don’t fancy going mining, you can purchase Bronze Bars from Hammertime - the smithing shop. Prices fluctuate in Sandrock, but one Bronze Bar will cost around 45 Gols. Or, you could purchase some Tin Ore and Bronze Ore from "Eufaula Salvage Shop" iconEufaula Salvage Shop. Bronze Ore costs 4 each and Tin Ore costs 8 so it’s cheaper than purchasing the Bronze Bars outright.

How to Get Rubber Tubes

"Rubber Tube" iconRubber Tubes can be obtained in one of two ways. Firstly, you could recycle a bunch of Rubber Scraps in the recycler in hopes of getting the 6 Rubber Tubes you need. Rubber Scraps can be obtained from Junk Piles and Rubber piles in Eufaula Salvage yard.

Secondly, you could make Rubber Tubes using the "Grinder" iconGrinder. To make 1 Rubber Tube, you’ll need 3 Rubber. In total you’ll need x18 Rubber to make 6 Rubber Tubes. If you’ve not made a Grinder yet, head over to our guide for more information on how to unlock and build one!

Before you can make Rubber Tubes in the grinder, you’ll need to purchase the recipe from the Commerce Guilde Store. It costs around 44 Gols depending on price fluctuation.

How to Get Rubber

Rubber can either be obtained from recycling Rubber Scraps, or it can also be found from just digging in Junk Piles. Make sure to check out Eufaula Scrap yard every day to get as many resources as you can!

How to Get Old Parts

One of the easiest ways to get Old Parts is to recycle Mechanical Scrap in the "Recycler" iconRecycler. It’s a random drop but if you have enough Mechanical Scrap you’ll have no problem getting any Old Parts.

Mechanical Scraps can be obtained from quarrying Junk piles or Mechanical Scrap piles in the Eufaula Salvage Yard.

Alternatively, you can also occasionally find Old Parts when mining in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins.

Old Parts can be obtained from recycling Mechanical Scraps.
