Spiritfarer has a number of different materials you need to upgrade your buildings and your ship. Glass is a material you’ll have to gather for a few useful improvements and for additions in certain spirits’ houses. Here’s everything you need to know about how to get glass in Spiritfarer.
Getting Glass in Spiritfarer
First of all, you can’t exactly “find” glass like you can find iron ore or quartz. Since it isn’t naturally occurring out in the Spiritfarer world, you have to make it and you’ll need a few things to do that.
The object you’ll need first is an empty bottle. These can be found scattered across the world, in cargo crates, and sold in Francis’ roaming shop. These are also the same bottles you use to gather lightning so don’t go too crazy catching lightning when you’re in a thunderstorm.
The second object you’ll need is the foundry. This is the building you use to smelt down ores into ingots and shoes into glue. To make the foundry, you’ll need to have upgraded your blueprint table at Albert’s Shipyard appropriately to have the option to create it. Concurrently, you’ll need a bit of coal to get the foundry working.
Astrid will also introduce you to the concept of smelting ore and to the foundry in her questline so don’t worry about possibly missing out on building it.
Once you have the empty bottle, the foundry, and a bit of coal, you can insert the empty bottle into the foundry just like any ore and smelt it down into glass. Then, the glass can be used for whatever improvement that needs it.
