As predicted a couple of days ago
, Treasure Isle
has just released their new buildable Gem Mine. If you've been playing Treasure Isle for awhile, you're probably familiar with how this works since it functions almost identically to the Pirate Ship and the Tiki Statue. Not sure how to build your Gem Mine? Here is a guide that will help you with everything you need to know.
When you first log in to Treasure Isle, you'll be greeted with a message alerting you that you can begin building your Gem Mine. You can either place the mine right away, or store it for later building. Click "Place It" and then click on the ground on your island wherever you would like to place your mine. You can move it at a later time, so don't worry too much about the placement. After you have placed the not-yet-built Gem Mine, click on it several times to get the mine started. It will cost a total of 20 energy to get the mine started, in 5 energy chunks. Now that your Gem Mine is started, it's time for the nitty-gritty building.
Clicking on your unfinished Gem Mine will display the building interface, which shows you exactly what you need in order to complete the mine. You will need 5 each of Bolts, Planks, Rope, Pillars, and Gears. These materials can be received in several different ways. Buying them with Island Cash is the quickest (yet most expensive) way to complete your gem mine, but it will cost you either 1 Island Cash each or 22 total. Alternatively, you can "Ask for More" on each ingredient, which will post to your wall. Anyone who clicks on the wall post will instantly be granting you the material that you ask for. Unfortunately, you can only ask for a material once every 12 hours, and this includes materials for your Pirate Ship or Tiki Statue as well. The final way to collect all the pieces is through standard gifting on the gift page - so you can request for specific gifts to be sent to you.
Once you have completed your Gem Mine, it is now a functional piece of decor for your island that provides a huge bonus - gems! Every 24 hours you can go "mining for gems", which has a chance to give you 1-5 gems of the color of your choice. This is an essential addition to your island.
