A ranch upgrade is an item that extends the range of a ranch block beyond the default 9×9 area. Each ranch block allows the player to extend the range by one block in the x direction or the z direction (positive or negative). The maximum range that a ranch block can be extended to is 15×15, requiring twelve ranch upgrades to achieve. The effects of ranch upgrades are lost if the ranch block is destroyed. Ranch upgrades can be obtained as tier 2 special drops.
