The Iron Reef is a huge iron collection area that kills iron golems spawned from over 30 (soon to be 48, maybe 144 or even 256 when done) iron farms. It was named because of the location of it in a large water source and after 20+ iron golems escaped into the water and walked on the bottom of the ocean.

Contents

Generators

The area at the Iron Reef has multiple generators, some similar to the ones at Batugus Labs but much bigger in size.

Underwater Tubes

Long underwater tunnels made of stained glass connect many of the farms in this area, with one center intersection point in the middle.

Iron Collection Area

Collection area of the iron farms, where the iron golems burn all at one point. Iron is collected into a locked chest nearby and poppies can be collected on request (button activated). Below is a storage area for extra iron and poppies that is also private.

Animal Cube

The Animal Cube is a small but compact animal farm, using large amounts of spawners to spawn mobs onto grass blocks which get removed by pistons so the mob falls into fire below. Items are cooked as the animals die in fire.

Animals:

  • Pig - Drops cooked pork chop
  • Cow - Drops leather and steak
  • Sheep - Drops wool

The Animal Cube design has also been rebuilt by other players in Grifftopia and CosmicCity.

Crop Farms

Automatic crop farms.

Plant types:

  • Wheat - Collects wheat and seeds
  • Potato - Collects potatoes and poison potatoes
  • Carrots - Collects carrots
  • Beetroot - Will collect beetroot when done
  • Netherwart - Collects netherwart
  • Sugarcane - Collects sugarcane
  • Melons - Collects melon slices
  • Pumpkins - Collects pumpkins

Mass crafting table

A massive crafting table which can mass produce many crafted items. It can be used by standing ontop of it, putting items in chests then pushing the button in the center. The crafting table has two different modes. One mode on the left which crafts anything it can make out of the resources you give it. The other mode on the right side of the crafting table players can set it to craft one specific recipe.

Warning: do not overfill the minecart.

Giant Spruce Tree Farm

The second automatic giant spruce tree farm created on the server (the first being a test version in Batugus Labs). It has 36 giant spruce trees, each collecting a few stacks of spruce logs each time it is harvested. This farm is most often filled to the max with hoppers and chests meant for collecting the logs with craftbook doors, because of this many trees do not have room to be harvested and so stay where they are. The farm also collects saplings dropped from the trees.

Dark Oak Tree Farm

Giant Jungle Tree Farm

Similar to the giant spruce tree farm, this farm collects jungle wood and saplings from giant jungle trees. This is the third giant jungle tree farm to be created (First being at Glenfiddich, second being a test for this farm at Pie Island). This farm is still in progress of being built at the moment, but is already collecting plenty of jungle wood logs.

Acacia Tree Farm

Automatically collects acacia logs and saplings.

Birch Tree Farm

  • Not yet completed

Stone Factory

The Stone Factory is a very large stone generator at the Iron Reef, it has many layers and uses the cobblestone generator. It is connected to the main underwater pipes and located behind the old stone generator.

Stone Generator

The stone generator has a birch tree farm located on the roof of the stonebrick building with iron bar windows. The tree farm then uses furnaces to create charcoal. A cobblestone generator is below this and creates cobble to be smelted with the charcoal and create stone. The collection point is at the surface level of the building, with extra storage below it. The generator also puts extra birch wood, charcoal, cobblestone and saplings into chests next to the collection point.

Cobblestone Generator

Cobblestone generated 330 blocks at a time, with a unique way of creating the cobblestone different to most generators.

Zombie Grinder

A very large zombie grinder, with settings for collecting zombies in groups of 30 levels of experience points.

Currently out of order, in an attempt to reduce the lag of the server

Tunnel to Winterthorn

Located near the spruce tree farm, this tunnel connects to Winterthorn, which most players pass while traveling to here.

Nether

The Iron Reef also has tunnels inside the nether, to make walking around from one generator or farm to another faster, as in the nether the tunnels are eight times less the distance.

Nether Fortress

A natural nether fortress is also located nearby, where wither skeletons and blazes can be found.

Blaze Grinder

Using a natural blaze spawner from a nether fortress, this is a grinder for blaze rods. In order for blaze rods to drop, a player must hurt the blazes.
