Obtaining the Geode Processor crafting blueprint is not possible until certain requirements have been met:
- The town must have experienced the Earthquake (Spring 6, Year 2)
- The Waterfall Passage has been opened ("Collapsed Track")
- The Waterfall Cave rights have been purchased from the Town Hall for 60,000 coins
Geode Processor Questline
After the player has purchased the Waterfall Cave, they must speak to Beltran to complete the following quests:
- New Cave Owner
- New Machine
- Copper Crisis
- A Bit of Gold
- Dream of Crystal (unlocks the Geode Processor blueprint)
Note: It is possible to get the Geode Processor as a rare prize in festival minigames, which would allow the player to make use of the machine before officially unlocking the related questlines.
At the top of every hour, the process will complete and the workstation can be opened to retrieve the items.
Because the Geode Processor only converts items when the hour begins, the actual time in game when you place a stack inside will affect how quickly the items will be ready. Items placed at 12:45 will be ready much sooner than items placed at 12:15, for example.
