Sludgy Dirt is a cover block. It has a normal variant that generates in relatively large patches on the surface of Sludge Plains biomes, as well as a Spreading variant that generates from killed, naturally generating Spirit Trees.
Plant Support[edit | edit source]
Sludgy Dirt supports the placement and growth of basic plants.
Movement[edit | edit source]
Sludgy Dirt slows down the movement of players and non-Betweenlands mobs greatly when walked over, and prevents them from jumping as well. Unlike most other slowing blocks, there is no way to negate this slowing effect, not even with Rubber Boots.
Betweenlands mobs are not slowed by Sludgy Dirt.
Spreading[edit | edit source]
If the Large Spirit Tree Face of a naturally generated Spirit Tree is killed, the tree will begin to die. The surrounding Swamp Grass of the tree will slowly convert into Spreading Sludgy Dirt, which acts the same as regular Sludgy Dirt but spreads to the rest of the Swamplands Clearing sub-biome that the tree generates in. This essentially turns the biome into a miniature Sludge Plains biome, capable of spawning Sludges and Smoll Sludges.
Collection[edit | edit source]
Sludgy Dirt drops Swamp Dirt when harvested. The blocks themselves must be harvested with a Silk Touch tool to be collected.
