|The Floating Islands no longer exist after patch 0.7.4. The area got reworked and replaced with The Park. This page will be talking about something that is no longer accessible and current.|
The Floating Islands are a series of islands accessed via the Forest, focusing on the foraging skill. All wood types except oak (found in the Forest) can be gathered, as well as their Leaves and Saplings. Foraging I is required to enter the Floating Islands.
There are five islands total: Birch Park, the Spruce Woods, Jungle Island, the Savanna Woodland, and the Dark Thicket. They follow an ascending and clockwise pattern as the player travels through them. They each give a different type of wood.
The Birch Park is where the player enters the Floating Islands from the Forest. It can also be accessed directly from the Private Island by using a portal unlocked at Birch Wood III. A launch pad leads back to the Hub World, and another leads into the Spruce Woods.
Birch Wood can be collected by cutting Birch Trees, which is required to complete the Timber! quest. Allium, orange tulip, and white tulip can also be found on the island.
The Spruce Woods can only be accessed after obtaining Foraging II, by either using the launch pad in Birch Park or the portal unlocked at Spruce Wood III. A launch pad leading to Jungle Island is located here.
Jungle Island can only be accessed after obtaining Foraging III, by either using the portal unlocked at Jungle Wood III or using the launch pad in Spruce Woods. A launch pad leading to Savanna Woodland is located here.
Jungle Wood is the main collection item obtainable here, simply by mining them. Blue orchids can also be found on the island. Rarely, Cocoa Beans can be obtained by breaking a wood block that they are attached to, making it possible to obtain them before achieving Farming V.
Savanna Woodland can only be accessed after obtaining Foraging IV, by either using the portal unlocked at Acacia Wood III or using the launch pad in Jungle Island. A launch pad leading to Dark Thicket is located here.
Acacia Wood is the only collectible here, from cutting the trees found here. Oxeye Daisies can also be found on the island.
Dark Thicket can only be accessed after obtaining Foraging V, by either using the portal unlocked at Dark Oak Wood III or using the launch pad in Savanna Woodland. A launch pad leading back to Birch Park is located here, but Birch Park doesn't contain a launch pad to here.
Dark Oak Wood is the main collection item here, simply by cutting them. A stack of Dark Oak Wood is required for beating Charlie's quest. The Mushrooms can be obtained by breaking them, making them possible to obtain before Farming V.
If you have a Grappling Hook, you can fly to the hub island without using the warp pad. This does not change servers and you can walk on a featureless hub island. From the Savanna Woodland, you can jump down to the Spider's Den. This does not change servers and you can walk on the island without mobs spawning.
