You cant portal with metal. Forcing you to cart stuff by the sea. Only you can.
Guide to Portal with Metal
For some reason, I suspect forcing the player to use the boats, you cannot portal with metals. Except there is a way.
So the game saves your position. And your inventory. Your character is independent of your map. So, this can be used in MP or SP, I use SP for ease.
Have your main map that you play. Mine your metal. Step near your portal. Log out.
Have a second map, say called cheese. Have a small base with storage. Log into this map, dump ore in box. Log out.
Log back into your main game, portal to your base. Log out.
Log back into your cheese map and grab your ore. Log out.
Log back into your main map. You are now at your base, with all your ore. This is quicker and safer then moving by sea, even with the longboat.
Cheap game mechanics deserve to be circumvented. It makes no sense (other than forcing you to travel by sea) to bottleneck ore transport like this. So work around the system. You can also use this method to bulk transport lots of ores overloading your inventory as you don’t physically move much during transfers.
