Newbucks are the basic and most widely used currency of Slime Rancher. Almost everything that is purchased within the game is paid for in newbucks.
Newbucks are primarily earned by selling plorts at the Plort Market. However they can be earned in small amounts via crates if a newbuck shower appears when opening them, by feeding Lucky Slimes any kind of Meat, or selling 10 Quicksilver Plorts to Mochi's Range Exchange at Mochi's Manor.
- 1.2.1 - Coins dropped in the world are snatched up and pocketed much quicker now.
- 1.2.0 - Added pop-up text whenever you earn or spend newbucks.
- The newbuck total has a 32 bit data storage, as a result it can have a maximum positive value of 2,147,483,647. Due to there being no check to prevent this going into overflow, any additional Newbucks gained will become a negative amount starting at -2,147,483,647. Due to the way the game checks to see whether you have enough newbucks to make a purchase, once you hit the negatives you cannot buy anything. Additional newbucks are added as normal, effectively requiring you to earn approximately 2.1billion newbucks to be able to do so again.
