How to Build

You can virtually use your imagination and build anything with Landmark’s superior building tools. An unprecedented set of materials and tools means how you build will have an influence on what you build. You can explore Landmark’s world and declare building materials, territory and more. See what fellow friends are creating and help them build. You can also take part in contests, collect objects and even sell your designs for real cash.

When building, the menu comes with three options:

Material Selector – which helps you choose the material and texture you’ll build with

Cursor Shape – helps change the shape, delete or add Tools

Template Manager – which helps create new templates for your designs.

Building Tools

The building tool is necessary for building on Landmark’s world. You can use it to rotate the ground, select materials, increase and decrease mouse size and select mirrors. You’ll basically need this tool to begin building. There are basically four building tools on Landmark; Heal, Paint & Smooth, Line and Selection Tools.

Heal Tool

The Heal Tool restores the entire area back to what it was before you started building. It is a basic tool you start Landmark with, and useful especially if you accidentally delete something, and wish to restore it. This tool work in hand with the Delete and Add Tools.

Paint & Smooth Tool

Paint & Smooth Tool helps in replacing current material and texture. You cannot use this tool to add voxels, but can instead use it to change the material of a wall from stone to wood. It’s not to use when building the first time, and once it has replaced old material, it is reimbursed to your inventory automatically. The Smooth Tools rounds the edges of objects.

The Line Tool

The Line Tool enables the creation of a line between two ends. It doesn’t only create lines at an angle, but could be different sizes at either ends of the line. This is good for creating an angled roof or support beams.

Selection Tool

With the Selection Tool, you can change the material and texture of your wall by simply dragging the selection box around it and furnishing the paint tool then click. It’s a very convenient tool once you master it. You left click, hold and move the cursor over the area you want selected. You can also select by dragging from the corners or sides of the box to modify size. The Selection Tool is probably Landmark’s most valuable tool. Not only can you copy and paste entire sections of your design, but other tools can also be used in the selection box.

Biomes

At the moment, Landmark has four types of distinct areas that are called Biomes. Each Biome is uniquely designed and has different characteristics; in some cases it even offers materials and objects than other Biomes. For instance, the only area where you can find a climatic pattern that consists of snow and ice is the Tundra Biome. Similarly, every continent in Landmark’s worlds is formed from two distinct Biomes.

Once you understand and know the types of Biomes that you would like to set your claim or declaration in, you’ll know what the weather pattern to expect.

Materials

Materials in Landmark are divided into Tiers that correspond to Continent Tiers. Different continents are characterized by different types of materials. For instance Iron, a Tier 2 material is found in continents that are common with Tier 2. You may occasionally find the same material in a Tier 1 continent.

Furthermore, metal nodes normally have a second type of gemstone or metal underground near the end-point of each node. Ensure you dig up each node completely so you don’t miss any unique materials hidden beneath the ground’s surface.

Finally, make sure you have the right tools to gather your resources. To harvest a resource, your tool has to be of a higher or equal Tier to the material. Use the right tools for the right job.

Below is a list of materials that could be found through mining.

Accessories

Quality Bonus Accessories

Harvesting Bonus increases the total amount of resources that you gather by 1% per point of your Harvest Bonus. However, to get Mastercraft Bracers, you’ll need to purchase the Explorer’s Package. In general, these accessories are currently limited to “Bonus Accessories.”

Harvest Bonus Accessories

These accessories increase the amount of resources which you can gather by 1 % per each point of your Harvest Bonus. Just like Mastercraft Bracers, unfortunately, you can only purchase this stat by getting the Explorer’s Package.

Improved Harvesting Damage Accessories

Harvesting Damage increases the strength of this gathering tool. This is mostly noticeable when cutting down trees, as the health bar decreases rapidly.

These accessories are one of the fastest I have used when gathering Heartwood. You’ll always receive Heartwood each and everytime you take down a tree, meaning that the faster you chop down trees, the more you get Heartwood.

Improved Harvesting Speed Accessories

Harvesting Speed improves the rate at which you swing your harvesting tools. It is calculated like this: Harvest Swing Speed/50 = Harvesting Speed. This means if your Indigo Pick has Harvesting Speed 75, and you wear two Gusts with Harvesting Speed 8.5 each, your total Harvesting Speed will be 92.

Improved Run Speed Accessories

These accessories increase your character speed. They are great for exploring the world or traveling between Tiers to gather metals. If you have extra materials, I’d recommend pairing them.

Light Source Accessories

These are lighting source accessories, and will add a bright spotlight on your head. Although fun, they are not yet essential as the worlds don’t get dark enough. The addition of caves in certain worlds may well change this notion.

Improved Harvesting Radius Accessories

These accessories increase your cursor’s size when you use a pick. A point of harvesting size will enlarge your cursor’s volume by about one voxel.

I wouldn’t recommend these accessories as yet because I don’t feel they are worth using over other crucial accessories.

Improved Harvesting Reach Accessories

These accessories increase your harvesting reach, meaning it will improve the range which you can harvest resources from. It uses a formula to come up with your reach stat.

In terms of Harvesting Radius, I personally did not find this stat much useful as yet.

Jumping Height Accessories

These are jumping height accessories which enable you to jump higher. If you possess a grappling hook to help climb cliffs and hills, I don’t think there’ll be a time when you would need to use this accessory.

Rare Resource Collection Rate Accessories

These are among the useful and important Landmark accessories right now. Each area of discovery greatly increases your chances of obtaining rare resources. Resources include; heartwood, essence of earth and elemental ore. I highly recommend these accessories for making early discoveries. This is a very useful stat.
