Minions are here to work tirelessly on an island. Give them a task and they will do it for you endlessly as long as the chunk that contains the Minion is loaded. If you are not within the radius to keep your Minion active, it will not collect materials for you, unless you give it “Food”.
The way to assign a task to your Minion is by using a “Core” that corresponds to the material you want. Keep in mind that there is a limit to the amount of Minions an Island can hold. You will be able to place 1 minion of each type per island. You can access the main Minion GUI for crafting and information with /min
Items: Repaired Permanent Catalyst - Turkey Leg - Slime Core (Tier 1)
