Hi all! In this thread I am going to be covering how to use and acquire a Sandbot, for all players who do not understand / know. I will be covering a step by step tutorial with images included!
What is a Sandbot?
- A Sandbot is an in-game item which automatically places sand for you instead of you having to place it. It is most commonly used in TNT Cannons and wall defences (sand walls to be precise).

How Do I Acquire a Sandbot?
- You can acquire a Sandbot in our in-game store on any of our factions realms!
Firstly, type the command
"/shop" in-game, this will bring up a menu, you then want to go over to the rotten flesh item named "Misc" and click on it.

- After you have clicked on it, at the very end of the selection of item list is a Beacon, this will state the following:

- Then click on the Beacon, you will recieve an item in your inventory named "Sandbot".

How Do I Set Up a Sandbot?
- After purchasing a Sandbot, you want to ensure you are in land which is claimed by your faction, for example, in your cannon box claim or in your faction base claim. This is because the Sandbot will not function if it is not in claimed land!

- Once claiming the land which you wish to use the Sandbot in, you need to build up to a height as to how high you would like the sand to be placed, or if it is for faction walls, then you do not need to build up.

- After you have built up to your desired height. You now need to place Lapis Blocks, which you can get lapis from the
/shop also in the minerals tab and then convert them to blocks. You must place the Lapis Blocks over the blocks as to where you wish the sand to fall. Please ensure this is correct otherwise you may face having to mine it all!
- The next step is to place the Sandbot which you have just bought on top or on the side of the Lapis Blocks. It should look like this: (Note: Remove the pillar you made if you are building up, for instance for your TNT Cannon)

How do I Enable a Sandbot?
- Once you have placed the Sandbot, you now need to follow through a couple steps before your Sandbot is fully functional:

- Firstly, right click the Sandbot, this will bring up it's GUI Interface. You want to move your mouse over to the third icon shown, this will say "Balance Button". You want to right click this button to deposit money into the Sandbot so it is able to spawn sand when enabled.

- Finally, once the Sandbot has sufficient funds implemented, you may hover your mouse over to the first icon which states
"Toggle Button". Right click this button and the Sandbot will begin to spawn sand until the sand reaches the Lapis Blocks and halts.

- If you fire your TNT Cannon, with the sand stacker enabled, the Sandbot will resume placing sand after firing.
Note: (The Sandbot will run out of funds eventually so if you do need it to proceed with functionality, you must add more balance into the Sandbot.)

I hope this clears any confusion for players who did not initially understand how this useful faction tool works!

I hope you all have a lovely rest of your day and stay safe!
Kind regards,
