How to get Ancient Civilization Parts in Palworld

While Palworld does take a lot of cues from its obvious inspiration, Pokemon, it isn’t simply a clone. Apart from catching and battling colorful monsters of various types, this is also a survival game with tons of building and crafting elements. Most of the early items you can craft will need basic materials, but when you start getting to the good stuff, Ancient Civilization Parts will be required more and more. While there are a few ways to get this resource, it isn’t easy to come by and won’t happen naturally for most people. If you’re stuck roaming around Palpagos looking for them, here’s how to get Ancient Civilization Parts in no time.

The best and most efficient way to get Ancient Civilization Parts in Palworld is to hunt down Alpha Pals. These are world bosses roaming around the map that are much tougher than typical Pals. When you find one, it will be marked on your map for you so you don’t have to fight it right then and there. Each one drops a few Ancient Civilization Parts.

Another method is to go clear one of the dungeons. These are caves you can stumble upon in the world, but are not marked and only show up for a limited period of time. Each dungeon has an associated level of the boss you can expect to find inside. Find one at a level you’re confident you can take down and head inside. Each boss typically drops one or two Ancient Civilization Parts when defeated. As a general rule, dungeons closer to the beginning of the game are easier and get more difficult as you venture forth.

Another possibility for getting Ancient Civilization Parts is to find a Lucky Pal (this game’s shiny equivalent) and defeating or catching them. The downside, of course, is that these Pals are very rare and you never know when or where you will encounter one.

How to make Bait Buckets in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

Technically, all you need to get started fishing in Lego Fortnite is a fishing rod and a body of water. As any great fisherman will tell you, though, the key to catching the rarest fish lies in your bait. The same applies here, but how you go about collecting said bait is a little obscure. The Bait Bucket is essential if you want to taste all the best fish in the game, so here's how to make this big bucket of chum.

No survival game is complete without the ability to fish, which was why it was so odd that Lego Fortnite launched without this option. Thankfully, that has been rectified in an update, and we finally have a use for all those large bodies of water around the world. Games handle fishing in a few ways, but in this case, you just need to get yourself a rod and set up near some water to collect all the fish you can cook and eat. Of course, you can't just find a rod. Being a crafting game, you will need to make your own, and we've got the recipe for you so you can get right to fishing.

If you’re done with Palworld, try this monster-catching game next
A summoner poses with chimera in Dicefolk.

Who would have thought that 2024 would be the year of the monster-collecting game? While several have tried (and often struggled) to recapture the joys of Pokémon, this year’s Palworld is perhaps the first game that’s ever truly been able to pull it off. Granted, it did that by trading in finely tuned RPG combat for Ark-like survival crafting that makes it an entirely different game, but a win’s a win. While Palworld has broken records on Steam, its early access nature means you can hit its bottom quickly -- something fans seem to be struggling with as its player count continues to drop.

Thankfully, there’s another monster-catching game you can move on to next. Dicefolk is a new roguelike where players amass a team of animal pals and control them in turn-based battles with dice. As is fashionable as of late, it’s another indie genre fusion that looks to mix roguelikes, deck-builders, and monster-catching RPGs. While it doesn’t excel in any individual category, Dicefolk does offer a creative mash-up of the three that’s sure to find its loyalists.
Gotta roll 'em all
Dicefolk follows a fairly traditional roguelike formula, though one that’s loaded up with twists. When I start a run, I’m dropped into a small map dotted with different icons. Some take me into a battle, while others give me upgrades or let me shop for gear. My goal in each level is to find and defeat the boss encounter, while tackling as many of the area’s challenges as I want to refine my party.
