The Planet Crafter: Prologue – All Golden Chests Locations

The location of the eight (8) Golden Chests with both coordinates and pictures showing where they are.

Guide to All Locations of Golden Chests


So, Planet Crafter has completely taken over our Discord group, as people have taken a break from painting their Warhammer miniatures, and planning their latest MTG Crimson Vow Deck combos, in order to play what we have effectively dubbed as the new “Subnautica on land”. I’m not sure if I 100% agree with that, but the game is hellish good fun.

While there have been the occasional “argument” over the best base location, and the prettiest shipwreck, nothing has fanned the flames of war quite like the Golden Chests debates.

“Are there really eight of them? I can only find seven of them!”

“I found the eighth one! But I’m not going to tell you where, I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you!”

“Just tell us where it is ♥♥♥, I gotta know.”

“See when you do find it, you’re not gonna believe how you missed it! :p”

While there are definitely members of our Discord community that delight in the suffering of others, such as players who run Drukhari and/or AdMech, or anyone who plays blue mana. I thought I’d take it upon myself to once again shed some light on their disinformation, and bring a swift end to the Golden Chests debate.

There are eight of them, and here are their locations.

The Western Ridge First Chest (1)

This chest is located on the Western Ridge within the Lake-bed starting area, it can’t be spotted from down below from a distance, as the ridge is curved up, and chests sits in a shallow pocket.

  • Coordinates: 263:28:478

The Shipwreck Second Chest (2)

This chest is located north-west of the Lake-bed starter area, atop the wrecked oracle class freighter which can be accessed via the sand dune to the right of the open cargo bay doors.

  • Coordinates: 276:167:1018

The Iridium Caves Third Chest (3)

Located deep within the Iridium Caves, on the second level, behind some rocks, which is best accessed via jumping down from the third level.

  • Coordinates: 832:50:1208

The Ridge Labyrinth Fourth Chest (4)

Located in a dead end nook at the back of the Ridge Labyrinth near the downed Satellite Station. If the Labyrinth proves too difficult to navigate, you can gain easy access via the back by south-east around the Ridge Labyrinth.

  • Coordinates: 1510:9:665

The Moat Fifth Chest (5)

This one can be a little hard to find early on, of course once the lakes have formed it sticks out like a soar thumb.

  • Coordinates: 938:24:324

The Aluminium Hills Sixth Chest (6)

Located in an oval nook on the south-eastern side of the Aluminium Hills. Just walk around the southern edge, and you’ll find it sure enough.

  • Coordinates: 1076:23:-16

The Field of Spiked Columns Seventh Chest (7)

The Field of Spiked Columns is a bit of a dismal location with reduced visibility. It can be accessed by going west of the Lake-bed starter area, or north-westward from the Aluminium Hills.

It’s hidden in the back corner just right and back a bit from of the rightmost shipping container, or alternatively you can go left of the mine entrance and follow cliff face until you hit the corner then turn round, and it’s there.

  • Coordinates: 402:4:-267

The Sandstorm Wall Cave Eighth Chest (8)

Located within a small rock cave near the south-west entrance, the cave at first seems empty, but keep pushing through and you’ll find it hidden behind a rock.

  • Cave Entrance Coordinates: 519:73:1551
  • Chest Coordinates: 473:65:1567


I added enlarged coordinates to the pictures, as although they do show the coordinates already, they’re a bit on the small side and difficult to read. I’m not sure the middle figure (height) has much bearing, but I included it anyway.
