Test of Life/Bastet
|Main Shard||Bastet||T5 Beta|
|Demonstrated by Saledo in Saqq on 7/9/2010.|
Requires demonstrating with the following:
- Steel Wire
- Copper Wire
- Moon Steel Sheeting
- White Raeli Tiles
- Greenish Raeli Tiles
- Yellowish Raeli Tiles
- Pinkish Raeli Tiles
- Black Raeli Tiles
- Rotproof, Rigid, Nontoxic Boards
- Oyster Shell Marble
- Night Granite
- Grey Star Marble
In the Test of Life, you (and other participants) will build an aqueduct system. These aqueducts will assist everybody in growing vegetables, among other things. Each week, the owners of the towers that have assisted in growing the most vegetables will pass the test.
When vegetables are grown at a tower, that tower and all towers upstream (toward the pump) accrue points. Points are per harvest, not per deben. ~Matk
Build an Aqueduct Tower that provides life-giving water to the arid desert. Vegetable growth assistance is tallied weekly.
- Build an Aqueduct Tower
- Raise the height of any Aqueduct Tower
- Pump an Aqueduct
- Use an Aqueduct to fill Jugs
- Use an Aqueduct to grow Vegetables
- Assist in growing 1000 Vegetables (Updated Weekly) This should say assist in growing 1000 vegetable HARVESTS! (very different!) - Tzalaa-
I understand this to be 1000 "harvests" not the number of vegetables grown. -WaggPhysh-
Also, this is not the number of harvests you have grown at towers,
but the the number of harvests grown at or after you tower on the aquaduct line. -Amenuk
Demonstrate the Principle
Demonstrated by Saledo in Saqq on 2010-07-09.
Pumps and towers may only be built at fixed locations set out in a hexagonal pattern, with exactly 20 coordinates between possible locations. When placing an aqueduct construction site, a locator window will appear to help you identify suitable spots.
Pumps can only be built at the edge of deep fresh water, as indicated by the aqueduct construction locator window. While the construction site is on the riverbank, the completed pump will appear in deep water at one of the points on the hexagonal grid, too far away to directly access. To access and upgrade the pump, you must build a tower adjacent to the pump; it will have additional options to fill the pump's cistern or upgrade the pump.
The pump counts as a tower for the purposes of the Test, so the pump's owner will accumulate points for all vegetables grown at downstream towers.
Towers may only be built when there is an immediately adjacent tower or pump, with a top that is at least 5 feet higher than the ground elevation of the new tower. You should use a Barometer to check the heights of your planned route. If you attempt to build in a bad location, it will not allow you to load materials to build the tower.
The top of built towers may be individually raised (for additional materials) after they are constructed, subject to the 5-foot restriction above.
