Latest file for v1.19.0:
fieldsofsalt_v1.2.1.zip 1-click install


This mod adds an evaporation pond to the game, which makes possible to evaporate liquids to obtain resources. Channels for fluid transfer are also added. They allow you to transfer liquid from liquid source blocks to the pond.

The mod itself adds a recipe for producing salt from sea water. But it is also possible to add custom evaporation recipes, description and example are available on github.

Known issues:
- At some angles, the contents of the pool and channels may not be displayed
- Sometimes visual glitches can appear when forming the structure of the pond

Loads fine and seems to work in 1.19.3, the issue I've noticed is that most stone types don't work, it just gives an 'invalid edge block type' error. I investigated the mod files a bit and discovered it specifically lists the three marble types, suevite and kimberlite under the rock types in pondtemplate.json. If i use one of these rock types it works fine, but other rock definitely worked in past versions.

The stock polishedrock.json does also have a section which states those specific rock types.. I'm not far enough into modding to know why or what it means or how to fix this mod, but I figure it's worth putting what I found here in case it saves some work for someone who does know.

Edit: Trying it on a server instead it works just fine with granite, which didn't work in single player, so... idk anything actually

Will this be updated for 1.19.x? It's a great mod.

💬 Arthopleura, Jan 6th at 1:03 PM

ok i think i found the error : The game apparently does not handle different mod version in the mod folder even if only one of them is enabled (and i downloded the wrong version the first time, so i had 2) . I removed it now, so it works fine.

💬 Arthopleura, Jan 6th at 12:27 PM

I got this issue with the v.1.1.2 of the mod on VS v.1.18.15. Do anyone knows how to resolve it ?

💬 Edel_Recke, Dec 9th 2023 at 12:34 PM

It can't be loaded with 1.19-pre9!

💬 iodide, Dec 3rd 2023 at 6:41 PM

Can anyone confirm if this works using v.1.19pre?

💬 Barhandar, Oct 9th 2023 at 1:31 AM

@Savasthek Pick it up with any fluid container and see what it says about the contents. Or notice what the tooltip is saying while picking it up. Also, saltwater is slightly darker on the map and doesn't freeze in winter.

💬 Savasthek, Aug 5th 2023 at 4:34 AM

How can one find out if the water input is salt water?
I am at the edge of what i would consider an `ocean`

All water looks the same to me, but after designating the evaporation pond with the template, and inputing water to the pond connector, the pond does not fill.

💬 XytabichAuthor, Jul 29th 2023 at 1:52 PM

Rescon I don't quite understand, can you send screenshots in PM or in discord?

💬 Rescon, Jul 28th 2023 at 6:39 PM

Xytabich we got graphic glitches with the net7 Version... The "Sediment" Water is just a grey block texture...

💬 MrTango, Jul 22nd 2023 at 4:43 PM

Can landcover be edited on an existing savegame (and if so, how? really like the look of this mod)? ie. new chunks generated will obey updated configs.

💬 Ultimaheart4, Jul 17th 2023 at 6:24 PM

Xytabich that is wonderful. im still attempting to find the mod that made my one world fail. not crash but litteraly stuck but allowed time to pass. its been over a week now so i dont have the files on hand. but i couldnt tell which mod was doing it. i think it couldve been a mix of primitive survival and a mod that was apparently only for net.7 

💬 XytabichAuthor, Jul 17th 2023 at 1:25 PM

Ultimaheart4

The mod works on 1.18.6. And it doesn't add any generation, salt water is vanilla.

💬 Ultimaheart4, Jul 16th 2023 at 10:54 PM

hanvt seen any files for recent stable 1.18.6 can i assume this works with 1.18.6? im trying to pinpoint which mod broke my world when i threw them all together and ive checked off 25 of them. but im not even sure i found salt water in my world ive been messing around in to test those mods. just wanted to check this mod working in current stable off my list and wasnt sure how to test it to see if it works or if it changed world gen honestly.

💬 XytabichAuthor, May 16th 2023 at 4:01 PM

Salt can be collected as soon as sediment forms (can be seen through the water). Sediment will form as long as there is liquid in the pool for evaporation, and there is free space for sediment. The pond holds up to 15 units of salt per block.

💬 Ginko72, May 16th 2023 at 4:43 AM

Yes, it needs to be salt water (I got myself a block from creative since I hadn't started with oceans)

Thanks for the tip on the hoe.  Sadly, my poor eyes had trouble with the tool tip.

In any case, now that I can harvest the salt, how do I reset the pond after harvesting?  Or, was I impatient and it will happen automatically?

Thanks again!

💬 AzuliBluespots, May 15th 2023 at 3:37 PM

I think I made my first pool. There is one connector (the one with wood on it) pointing directly at water, and the planner worked as intended, it seems. Does it NEED to be salt water or does it work on normal water? Also, do I need extra  blocks for the pool to start filling?

💬 XytabichAuthor, May 14th 2023 at 7:43 PM

Ginko72
To collect sediment, you need a hoe. It is indicated in the handbook, in the guide and in the in-world tips.

💬 Ginko72, May 14th 2023 at 5:45 PM

What tool is used to harvest salt?  Last time I had a batch, I broke a slab. I figure that there has to be an easier way. Thanks for the awesome mod!

💬 AzuliBluespots, Apr 28th 2023 at 3:30 PM

There's new conte4nt in there to translate, or somehow I missed it. Hmm.

💬 XytabichAuthor, Apr 28th 2023 at 5:09 AM

Yanazake
The obsidian related error is probably due to a mod that adds a polished version of it to the game. To make the recipe work for polished obsidian, need to patch the connector block and add the obsidian variant to it.
As for the translation, you can DM it on the forum, or by writing to me on Discord.

💬 XytabichAuthor, Apr 28th 2023 at 4:59 AM

The connector is not required for the pond, you can create the pond without it. "Invalid Edge Blocks" can only appear if the borders consist of the wrong type of blocks. MrCopperman

💬 MrCopperman, Apr 28th 2023 at 3:15 AM

Just an FYI About a few things you might run into:

"Invalid Edge Blocks" Seems to occur if you try to make an evap pond without the "Connector" attached already. It must be there before you use the Template to check/convert it

The total dimensions of the pond must be odd, including the edge blocks. So for example 1 wall, 5 blocks of interior, and another wall = 7 Blocks

The Pond wont fill up or work unless you are filling it with Salt Water. Salt water only generates in oceans which are new, and by default do not spawn ever. The control for oceans is called "Landcover" in World Gen and by default is 100% (ie: No oceans)

The walls of the Evap pond must be polished rock, the floor must be polished rock slabs

These were confusing to me at first but I figured them out by trial and error. Hope it helps anyone else looking to use it.

💬 AzuliBluespots, Apr 27th 2023 at 12:38 PM

pt-br crowdin translation done!

Also, it's throwing an error in the console.

💬 AzuliBluespots, Apr 26th 2023 at 11:41 AM

I'm gonna have to tackle the pt-br translation of this 😅

💬 XytabichAuthor, Apr 1st 2023 at 5:16 AM

The mod has no dependencies, you only need the latest version of the game (1.18.0-pre8 atm)

💬 natemw1, Mar 31st 2023 at 2:51 PM

can you please link the dependencies mod in the description, or at least name what the dependencies are?
