Quarry Worker is the newest addition to the multitude of jobs within Transport Tycoon.
Head over to the Quarry in Sandy Shores and go to the Specialized Job Center ( ) and select the Quarry Worker job. Then, head over to the spawners besides the job center to spawn an excavator or dumptruck.
Doing The Job
The Quarry worker job is co-op friendly, where players can choose to use the dumptruck () while at Mining level 1-50. once you reach level 50 you can use the Excavator (). Additionally, when you reach Mining level 70 you gain access to a special dumptruck, which you can spawn near the drop off point for the dumptrucks () The Excavator operator' job is to dig up buckets of gravel and dump it into the dumptruck(s) till it's full. The dumptrucks then take it to a drop off point marked on their map (Randomly chosen point), and tip it away to receive rewards. (Mining,Trucking And Farming XP Split between the amount of helpers)
In order to take the role of truck driver, you need to spawn the dumptruck at the spawner next to the Specialized Job Center ( ). When you have spawned the truck, go over to one of the excavators and park the truck up next to them, so they can dump their bucket into your truck bed. Once the bed is 100% full, you will get a waypoint marked on your map. Go over to the waypoint and follow the on screen instructions to dump your bed and get paid.
In order to take the role of the excavator, you need to spawn an excavator at the spawner next to the Specialized Job Center ( ). When seated in your excavator, you will be given a location inside the quarry to go and dig at. Once arrived at the dig site, you will need to control the excavator and follow the on screen instructions to dig up gravel and dump it into the tipper trucks.
(The controls for the boom follow the same control scheme as the submarine controls so if you wish to change the keybindings, change the keys for submarines.).
The rewards are distributed between everyone who contributed in that particular drop off (Exacavator Operator and Dumptruck Driver) Each Excavator Operator will receive full xp gains no matter how many excavators helped load the trucks, however the cash reward is split between all excavators that participated. This job can be done solo as well. You can use the excavator to dig up buckets of gravel and filled your own spawned mule truck until full, head to the drop off point and reap your rewards!
You get 3 different EXP gains when completing a drop off.
As well as cash rewards for your efforts.
The API supports 4 different leaderboards regarding the job. Those leaderboards can also be found scattered across the Quarry area. All Quarry worker leaderboards are persistent, so they represent the total effort a player has done.
