How to Play Emerald Tycoon in Minecraft
Emerald Tycoon allows players to play the storyline and free roam the open world using all the new features presented in this map, including:
- Mining and collecting emeralds
- Upgrading emerald generators
- Surviving mob arenas
- Rebuilding villages
- Unlocking new areas, mounts and special items
If you want to complete the story, then the best way to start the game would be the following:
- As soon as you spawn, press the big Play button
- Follow the green sparkles on the ground
- Arrive at the Woodchopper‘s hut
- Open his chest for your first batch of emeralds
- Travel to the mineshaft and open the chest there
- Move to the arena and fight zombies for more emeralds
- Use emeralds to upgrade Resource Stations
This is your basic cycle that you need to repeat in order to fully upgrade all the required points from the storyline, such as the Lumberjack, Stone Quarry, Blacksmith, Farm, and many others.
All these resources are required for you to rebuild the old dilapidated village. It includes towers, temple, village huts, and many other structures.
All these areas require emeralds, so you need to be able to quickly farm a huge amount of emeralds. The best area to do this is the Arena, where you can kill as many zombies as you want, and they can give you a hefty amount of emeralds relatively quickly.
Each dead zombie gives you 10x Emeralds, and these spawn infinitely in waves. You can make several hundred emeralds in just a few minutes if you don’t get hit too often, which is enough to upgrade one station.
Once you have all stations fully upgraded, you will receive a special trophy and achievement for all your hard work.
