Limestone: where and how
Pls help. I want a boat so I can sail. I have the linen and wood so im ready 2 mak it. I just need to get to level 2. I need limestone but cant find it. Ive tried digging like 18 blocks under my house(my houe is a 5 second walk from my portal) and nothin but rubies stone and clay can b found. Do I have to explore a bit more to find limestone.

Well, make sure you have a pickaxe. (any one works) and then if you can find a cave just explore in there for a while. Limestone looks like stone but it is a little bit lighter and is white. Don't confuse this with marble. You should find it right away. I have noticed that it likes to hang out on the ceiling of the cave walkway. It will not be in the dirt. Another good thing is that it has a small chance of giving you a lime. If you get one, save it unless your hunger bar is below 40%. Plant it on the new island you reach. Don't hesitate to eat it if you absolutely need it.

Another way would be creating a trade portal and buying the limestone.

Dig straight down. only about five blocks. when you reach stone you know your deep enough. not there? dig another hole about eight blocks away and check again!

I have tried digging under my house (it is 3 blocks away from my portal, but where I dug was about 7 TOTAL spaces away) and I only found one limestone, but it may work depending on your world and other variables. I dug about... um, 3-15 blocks down and I also found a lime!
