Basic Information[edit | edit source]
Wildwood Flowers (Dark) are cubic natural blocks that consist of very dark green Monstera-deliciosa-like leaves with pinkish red rose-like flowers among them that do not glow in the dark. It can only be found on the darker and rarer variant of Wildwood trees in Jungles that are covered with Dark Wildwood Leaves, embedded in these leaves. No more of these flower blocks will grow after world creation, they aren't dropped by any Creatures, and they cannot be duplicated by placing and collecting. They are not to be mistaken with Wildwood Flowers, the brighter, glowing cousins of this block, or Wildflowers that grow on the ground of Savannah biomes. These blocks became harvestable in R2.63.11 on 21st February 2020, before that Wildwood Flower (Dark) blocks became ordinary Wildwood Flowers when pulled.
How to obtain[edit | edit source]
Wildwood Flowers (Dark) can only be found in Jungle biomes, where Wildwood Flowers (Dark) grow in Dark Wildwood Leaves on Wildwood trees. To collect these flower blocks, no Power Cell is required and no Mining Cell will lose durability when harvesting Wildwood Flowers (Dark), except for outdated Wood Mining Cells.
Wildwood trees are part of any newly created Creativerse game world, since they are fixed elements of the prefabricated template worlds that every newly created Creativerse is a copy of.
How to use[edit | edit source]
Wildwood Flowers (Dark) can be placed as building blocks, since they have a cubic shape. They can be fully rotated into all directions by pointing your cursor at them, then pressing and holding R (as the default key) and then moving the mouse while holding down the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at an already rotated block or item, so that all flower blocks of the same stack in the chosen quickslot will then face the same direction when being placed.
Wildwood Flowers (Dark) can be put on display in display containers like Placemats, Stone Wall Shelves, Hidden Temple Altars, Galactic Grav-Chambers, Frozen Containers, Holiday Decorative Trees, Snow Buried Containers, Wood Planters, Flower Pots or the like, where they will be displayed in a smaller size and won't be able to spawn any Creatures. Anything that is placed into slots of display containers cannot be rotated.
Like most other placeable blocks, Wildwood Flowers (Dark) can be painted, with the primary color influencing the color of the flowers, and the secondary color influencing the color of the leaves.
Fire Warning[edit | edit source]
Attention: like nearly all plants and flowers in Creativerse, including whole trees, blocks of Wildwood Flowers (Dark) are flammable!
When placing Wildwood Flowers (Dark) close to (or especially directly above) torches or any other items with open flames or fiery blocks like Hardened Lava, then Wildwood Flowers (Dark) can easily catch fire and burn to nothingness in hot environments that make a heat meter show up, like Oceans, Jungles or the Lava layer, but also in much cooler Swamplands.
Placing several torches or heat sources with open flames next to each other can even raise the chances to set flammable objects like Wildwood Flowers (Dark) on fire. Liquid Lava or Fire Bombs will immediately burn Wildwood Flower (Dark) blocks.
If Wildwood Flowers (Dark) start burning, the flames are then able to spread to other nearby flammable blocks, even across gaps of 1-2 blocks on game worlds and player claims where the "fire spreading" option is enabled. This way a whole wooden building or forest (especially Wildwood, Weepwood, Parchwood and Shorewood) can burn down in the worst case.
Fire cannot be extinguished by using liquids, but it can be stopped from spreading by claiming the area and making sure that the claim (advanced) option "fire sim/spreading enabled" is disabled (by default). Fire Bombs will have no effect on these claims either.
It is also possible for owners of the game world (F2P players included) to toggle the spreading of fire on a whole game world in the basic world options ("edit world" and "disable fire spread"). Another option to stop fire from spreading would be to create forest aisles/swaths wide enough so that the flames cannot leap over.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
Wildwood Flowers (Dark) are not part of very old game worlds created during Early Access before April 8th 2015, since they were implemented with update R14 together with Jungle biomes and Wildwood trees.
