## Hydroneer: How To Clear A Dirt Plot Using Nukes

How to clear a Dirt Plot layer by layer using Logic Mini Nukes and Logic TNT without Logic Wires and save a couple of Hydro Coins while doing it.

### How To Do One Layer

#### Method 1

- Make a row of Nukes with 5 blocks between each Nuke
- Now every other row needs to be shifted by 3 blocks
- 2 block behind each Nuke place a TNT, do it for every row, except the bottom row
- On the bottom row place a TNT 2 block in front the of Nuke
- If you did right activating any Nuke in the bottom row will trigger a chain reaction,

and explode every Nuke you placed

#### Method 2

- Make a row of Nukes with 5 blocks between each Nuke
- Now every other row needs to be shifted by 3 blocks
- Between 2 rows of Nukes you place a TNT in front of each Nuke with 1 block between them
- Link each pair of rows with 1 TNT with 1 block spacing in front of any Nuke you want the explosion from the other row to go to (use 2 if you want a bi-directional link between the rows)
- If you did right activating any Nuke will trigger a chain reaction following the links you made in step 4, and explode every Nuke

#### Method I’m Rich

Just place a Nuke with 3 spacing between them in a square pattern.

### How To Do Multiple Layers

Just repeat what you did for 1 layer, but place the Nuke when it is half in the dirt.

you should be able to place the TNT in the dirt too if the TNT is upright and you are looking at it with the right angle else just bring a pickaxe to make you life easier

#### Example Result

##### One Layer

##### Two Layers

### Clean Up

Once you are done Nuking the Plot you can use any method the game offers to flatten the terrain, Im going to list a few

Hydro Roller

Pickaxe + Rake combo

More Nukes???

You could also just not flatten the terrain and cover it with the flooring options the game offers

### Misc Info

#### Blast Radius

The Nuke has a blast radius of ~3.5 blocks + the block the Nuke is on

The TNT has a blast radius of ~1.5 + the block the TNT is on

These blast radius numbers are based of my testing and are not acurate

So we use a TNT to expand the range of Nuke so that the TNT can trigger another Nuke and set off the chain

#### Math on Money Saved

Unless you use the method I’m Rich you will be saving a lot of hydro coins let’s do the math ðŸ™‚

let’s say you want to clear 1 layer of 100×100 blocks:

##### Using the Rich Method

A Nuke every 4 blocks in every direction

100 / 4 = 25 ^ 2 = 625 Nukes

26k per Nuke

625 * 26000 = **16,250,000 Hydro Coins**

##### Using either method 1 or 2

A nuke every 6 blocks

100 / 6 = 16.67

Im going to round to 18 because you might need to 1 extra for each row to acount for the shifted by 3, and you can’t get .67 of a Nuke

A row of nukes every 5 blocks

100 / 5 = 20

20 * 18 = 360 Nukes

26k per Nuke

360 * 26000 = 9,360,000 Hydro Coins for nukes

360 per TNT

We use 1 TNT for every Nuke except in method 2 where we use 1 or 2 more to link the rows, so im making the price for a TNT 396 or +10% more expensive for method 2

360 * 360 = 129,600 Hydro Coins for TNT in method 1

360 * 396 = 142,560 Hydro Coins for TNT in method 2

9,360,000 + 129,600 = **9.489.600 Hydro Coins for method 1 in total**

9,360,000 + 142,560 = **9.502.560 Hydro Coins for method 2 in total**
