Here’s how to create a coal farm in Twilight Dunes, so you can have a constant supply of coal for smoother late-game progression.

Follow these steps:

Opinion: Video games might release faster because of AI, but is it actually a good thing for gamers?
  1. Find an area with 3 or more coal ores.
  2. Build a base with basic necessities for your Pals.
  3. Send Pals with at least level 3 Mining and Transporting skills.

Build a base with basic necessities for your Pals

Your Pals will need basic necessities to operate. This includes a place to sleep, a healthy supply of food, and a Hot Spring for relaxation. Without these, they will refuse to work.

Hopeful fans are asking, is Palworld multiplayer?

You’ll need:

  • Straw Pal Beds (Level 3 technology): Each Pal requires a bed for rest. Construct these with 10 Wood and 5 Fiber per bed to ensure every Pal has a place to sleep.
  • Hot Spring (Level 9 technology): Maintain your Pals’ sanity with a Hot Spring. Letting their sanity fall too low will cause them to stop working. Construction requires 30 Wood, 15 Stones, 10 Paldium Fragments, and 10 Pal Fluids. Click here to read our guide on farming Pal Fluids.

  • Wooden Chest (Level 2 technology): Keep your resources, like ores and other items, organized with a Wooden Chest. Materials stored in these chests are treated as part of your inventory, allowing you to build and craft within your base without carrying the materials. A chest needs 15 Wood and 5 Stones to build.

You may also want:

  • A Feed Box (Level 4 technology) is useful if you don’t want to individually feed Pals. They will automatically eat from the Feed Box whenever they are hungry. It requires 20 Wood to build.
  • A food farm, like a Berry Plantation (Level 5 technology), is helpful so you don’t have to manually put food in the Feed Box. To construct one, you’ll need 3 Berry Seeds, 20 Wood, and 20 Stones. Additionally, you will need Pals with skills in Planting, Watering, Farming, and Gathering.

Once your base is set up, it’s time to assign Pals to work.

However, not just any Pals will do for your coal farm. Each Pal possesses unique Work Suitability skills that enable them to perform specific tasks in the base.

The best level 3 mining Pals available are Digtoise, which spawn around your coal base. Be cautious, as they are challenging to defeat and capture. If you choose to use Digtoise, remember to pair them with additional Pals having Transport Workability to move your ores into your Wooden Chest.
