Recommended Posts

Does anybody know a good and efficient way to get emeralds because i need A LOT and i don't think any of the new biomes have them and its extremely rare to find vanilla biomes.

melt down villagers in a TC smeltery

I have to warn you, this is every bit as callous as it sounds, and it'll make you feel like a bad person.

 

I significantly increased my production when I discovered that children.. uh.. "output" as much emerald as their adult counterparts, though.

You just found a way to suck the last of the fun out of it for the poor villagers, AO :)

 

Should provide a reasonable boost to productivity though...

Someone already mentioned this but use MFR Auto-Spawners to spawn exact copies of villagers with good trades. (For example; paper for emeralds or wheat for emeralds.) Just use on villager up then kill him and spawn another. Wow, that sounded a lot less evil in my head. ._.

I do this with a Villager that trades 2 emeralds for 1 skin. I spawn him a bunch, max out all trades, then melt them down. I get EVERYTHING out of them. *Feels the evil scientist within*.

Is that so? That should speed up my farm drastically then! No waiting 20 minutes for them to grow up!

 

Update: Sadly, this doesn't seem to be the case anymore. :(  My test (on 1.0.9c) had them "producing" 0.03 emeralds. It would take 10 children to equal one melted peasant.

 

This is a disappointing setback. I'll have to investigate mating rates to see if I can still convince it to come out ahead...

Yupp. There is a chunk corruption issue with the necromancy building and so most of the village generation is turned off for the time being and will most likely remain that way, since the Bioms of plenty guys don't really seem in the mood to do something about it.

Best way to get your hands on a villager is to buy them of minebay (5 diamonds), put them in a reuseable safari net and then throw em in a MFR autospawner.

I might also try NOT exact copy origionally to see what else you might be able to get for villager types.

      Ok so I've been searching for 2-3 hours for emeralds. Every biome i pass by I look it up on biomes o plenty wiki to see if it has emeralds. So far, all the ones that have said "yes" i've looked and can't find any. It's very frustrating. Everytime I see a peridot from ProjRed I get so excited until I realize it's not an emerald. What's going on here? Is the Wiki false? Is Emerald just not spawning like the other ores and follows it's "natural" spawning? I also can't find any villages to make an emerald farm so I'm kinda stuck. I might just start using the cheat mode and exchange 2 Peridot for 1 emerald! Please help!

      Hi everyone
       
      I appear to have tremendous problems to find emeralds in nature (I find tons of other stuff, of course).
      Now I heard that it is possible to melt villagers in a tinkers construct melting pot.
       
      However, I have questions and I was not able to find answers by using google, youtube or this forum. Hope you may be able to shed some light on this issue:
      Are there certain biomes which spawn emeralds in a decent number (I guess not, but I have to ask) How do I exactly melt the villagers? (I melted iron, then put a villager in the pot with the melted iron using my safari net (despawning the villager), but nothing happend)
      I was not able to find a youtube video or any "step by step" info about this... Once I manage to melt the villagers, how to I get the emeralds? I guess I get liquified emeralds that needs to be put somewhere to make emeralds or do I get a block of emerald The breeding stuff is not important as of now, I will trying to use the MFR approach with the autospawner.
       
      Thanks a lot for your help!
