[U] Crafting blocks [/U]

Basalt - This block is formed when water is poured on top of lava at the center of the earth. Naturally formed water on top of lava will not create basalt. This block can be used in the Stonemasons bench to craft two basalt stairs or two basalt columns. Mining with a gem pickaxe the first time it is mined gives bonuses.

Black Glass - This block is crafted from black sand at the kiln or the electric kiln. It can also be found by mining black sand with a golden tool. It is commonly used as a decorative for houses and buildings. It can also be used to craft (with three iron ingots) five black glass windows at the kiln or electric kiln, or (with 2 black glass and one iron ingot) a display cabinet at a level one metalwork bench or at an electric metalwork bench.

Black Sand - This block can either be found in deserts or on beaches, or can be crafted (with one sand and three pig iron) at a level one press. If mined with a golden tool, you may receive iron ore, partially used magnets, or black glass. You can craft one black sand at the kiln or electric kiln with it. You may also use two black sand to craft iron ore at the level one press. You can craft (with five black sand and five sand) a silicon ingot at the electric furnace. With one iron ingot and one black sand, at the level one metalwork bench or electric metalwork bench, you can craft a magnet.

Dirt - This block is the “support column” of the game. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to advance at all. It takes different forms when placed and depending on what biome it is; it can have snow on top of it if in a colder biome, grass if in a warmer biome, or nothing if recently placed down. It can be used to craft a level one workbench at a level one portal, or, with one flint and one dirt at a level one workbench, a level one tool bench. It can also be used to craft (with one stick and one dirt, at the level one workbench) a level one craft bench. At the level two workbench, with one dirt, one clay, and ten sticks, you will earn a kiln. At the level two press, with one dirt and one bucket of water, you can craft ten clay. You will get an empty bucket back after crafting is finished. Flint blocks and clay blocks can also be found in dirt. If mined with a golden tool, it may produce seeds and fruit as bonuses. It will also occasionally give a worm when broken. Seeds can be planted in it, aside from prickly pears.

Glass - This block is crafted from sand at a kiln or electric kiln. It is commonly used for aesthetic features in houses or buildings. It is used in crafting with one wood to make five windows at the kiln or electric kiln. It can also be used at the level two craft bench with one wood to make a camera. At the level two metalwork bench or electric metalwork bench, with one oil, one steel ingot, and one glass, it can craft either five steel lanterns, five steel uplights, or five steel downlights.

Lapis Lazuli - One of the rarer blocks found while mining, this item was commonly sold at a high price in shops until trade portals were added, making them much cheaper. When found naturally, it has a smooth, blue texture. When mined and placed, it has a shaded outline. It is commonly used as a building material. It can be used in the stonemasons bench to craft two lapis lazuli columns or two lapis lazuli stairs. It can also be used at a level one press to make ultramarine blue dye. If a golden tool is used on it, it may produce a gold ingot.

Limestone - When found naturally has a smooth, beige color. If placed after it is mined, it will have a brick-like texture. It will occasionally give limes when mined the first time. It can be used to upgrade a craft bench to level two, and with one marble and one stone, can make a stonemasons bench at the level two workbench. At the level two press, one limestone can give you five crushed limestone. In the stonemasons bench, it can be used to craft 2 limestone stairs or two limestone columns. If mined with a golden tool, you may receive oil.

Marble - When found naturally, has a smooth white texture. After being mined and placed down again, it will have a shaded outline. If a golden tool is used on it, it may give red marble. At the level one press, you can make marble white dye. You can also use marble to upgrade your craft bench to level three, and with one stone and one limestone at the level two workbench, you can craft a stonemasons bench. In the stonemasons bench, you can craft two marble columns or two marble stairs.

Red Marble - Another block that is rarely found spawning naturally, this block was also sold at a high price before trade portals were added. In its natural form, it will have a smooth, red texture. When mined and placed, it has a shaded outline. In the stonemasons bench, it can be used to craft two red marble columns or two red marble stairs. If a golden tool is used on it, it may produce a gold ingot.

Sand - Found in deserts or on beaches. If this is mined with a gold tool, it can give prickly pears, coconuts, glass, and black sand. If used in the kiln or electric kiln, you can make glass. At the level one press, with one sand and three pig iron you can make black sand. At the electric furnace five sand and five black sand will produce one silicon ingot. Prickly pears, flax, and coconuts may be planted in it.

Sandstone - Sandstone is commonly found under deserts or on stone mountains. When found naturally, it has a smooth, brownish-redish coloring. When mined and placed again, it will have a brick-like texture. In the stonemasons bench you can use it to craft two sandstone columns or two sandstone stairs. If a gold tool is used on it, it may produce gold ore.

Stone - Known as the most common block in the game, stone is found everywhere you go underground. When found naturally, it has a smooth, dark grey texture. At the level two workbench, with five flax it can craft a level one tailors bench, with ten charcoal it can craft a level one furnace, with one wood it can craft a level one press, with 100 time crystals it can craft a level one portal, and with one marble and one limestone it can craft a stonemasons bench. At the stonemasons bench, stone can be used to craft two stone columns and two stone stairs. At the level three workbench, stone can be used with a tin bucket and 5 oil craft a level one mixing bench, with a bucket of water and one linen craft a level one dye bench, with five tin ingots craft a level one armor bench, and with five steel ingots craft a train yard. At the stonemasons bench it can be used to craft two stone stairs and two stone columns. With five stone you can upgrade the workbench to level two and the tool bench to level two. At a level two tool bench with three stone and one stick, you can craft either a stone axe or a stone spade, and with five stone and one stick you can craft a stone pickaxe. If a gold tool is used on stone, you may receive ingots or gems.

Wood - Wood is collected by chopping down trees. The most effective way to do this is with an iron axe, and starting from the top of the tree working your way down. Many servers have a rule against chopping trees from the bottom so they can regrow. However, those servers still end up with no trees near spawn a few days after going public. Wood can burn down if a campfire is placed nearby or an ember is used on it. It can also be used for fuel in campfires, furnaces, and kilns. At the level one workbench, with one wood you can craft a woodwork bench. At the level two workbench, with one stone you can craft a level one press and with one wood you can craft a level one easel. At the level three workbench, with one gold coin you can craft a shop. At the woodwork bench, with one wood you can craft a wooden bed, a chest, ten ladders, a sign, a shelf, two wood columns, and two wood stairs. Also at the woodwork bench, with three wood you can craft a door, with one wood and one ladder you can craft a trapdoor, and with one wood and one iron ingot you can craft five reinforced platforms. At the level one craft bench, with one glass and one wood you can craft a camera. At the level two craft bench, with two linen and two wood, you can craft a boat. At the kiln or electric kiln, with one glass and one wood you can craft five windows. At the level one easel, with one wood, one linen, one oil, and 1-3 pigments, you can craft a small landscape painting, a small portrait painting, and a small square painting. At the level two easel, with two wood, two oil, two linen, and 1-3 pigments, you can craft a medium landscape painting, a medium portrait painting, and a medium square painting. At the level three easel, with three wood, three oil, three linen, and 1-3 pigments, you can craft a large landscape painting, a large portrait painting, and a large square painting.

Ice - Ice is found in cold biomes. If placed in a warm biome or near a campfire or torch or in a big cluster or near an oil lantern, it will melt into water. There must be water around for ice to be formed. At the stonemasons bench, one ice can make two ice columns and two ice stairs. These will also melt if in the same circumstances listed above.

Leaves - Leaves are found on trees. They are all different colors and textures. Sometimes the color depends on the season in the game. All leaves grow different fruits or seeds. When mined, sticks are given.

*Constructed Blocks*

Compost - Compost is created at the level two craft bench with five kelp. It helps grow plants and trees faster and taller. However, it also speeds up the death of the trees. Its texture depends on the same things as dirt.

Red Bricks - Red bricks are crafted at the kiln with one clay. They are used as a building material. They can be used at the level four workbench with one steel block and ten copper wire to craft an electric kiln. At the kiln or electric kiln, they can also be used to make two brick columns or two brick stairs.

Reinforced Platform - Reinforced platforms are very useful for creating advanced structures and creative backwalls. They hold the backwalls from being removed when the block above is removed, and can help with stopping backwalls before a certain point. You can make five at the woodwork bench with one wood and one iron ingot. They will burn if placed near a campfire or if an ember is used on it.

Wooden Door - A wooden door allows any blockhead to pass through, but not animals. It is a 1x2 vertical block that blockheads can walk right through. Serves great use in homes when separating rooms from one another. Made at the woodwork bench with three wood.

Iron Door - Very useful in servers, the iron trapdoor stops everyone else from coming in your buildings (excluding admins and owner). They are made at the level two metalwork bench or the electric metalwork bench. It takes up a 1x2 vertical space.

Trapdoor - Trapdoors are useful when you have a room above you that you want to get into. They require one wood and one ladder, and are made at the woodwork bench. They act as a ladder, but act as a full block you can walk across. They will not stop other players’ blockheads from coming into your structures.

Iron Trapdoor - The iron trapdoor has the same functions as a normal trapdoor, but other players’ blockheads can not go through them (excluding admins and owner). They are made at the level two metalwork bench or electric metalwork bench with one iron block and one ladder.

Copper Block - This block conducts electricity. It is a light brown color. It costs five copper ingots at the level one metalwork bench or electric metalwork bench. At the level three workbench, with one steel block, one copper block, one electric motor, and ten copper wire, you can make a flywheel. At the level one metalwork bench or electric metalwork bench, with one copper block you can craft two copper columns and two copper stairs.

Great job buddy! This must have taken so much time to type!

ps, gold blocks do conduct electricity:)


#3

thanks :slight_smile: it took me about three hours nonstop :stuck_out_tongue:

“you can tell you spend too much time on the forums when…” XD


#4

Woah O.O amazing xD 3 hours straight??!!! Your fingers need some rest. :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Also, you might want to add that using a magnet on iron ore will give you five ore and leave the stone.


#6

nevah XD

oh yeah, i forgot that, thanks


#7

I think with compost, you can see small flowers on top.


#8

Wow, great job! For three hours of work, you deserve rep and a five-star thread rating. :smiley: Were your fingers cramped at all? XD

EDIT: Milla, sticky this?


#9

Very helpful,would be better if you put them in spolier tag,so they can just search up only one block,instead of go trough a whole list. Rep :smiley:


#10

Just a few things u may want to add,

Gold blocks, tc blocks, gold ore blocks, give off a slight glow, similar to gems. Also, buildings can look like they’re made of tc blocks using doors and trapdoors. Using a gem pick axe on these doors will tell you that you’re getting multiple doors, but you’re really only getting one door per door you mine.

Also, ice can be formed if the temperature around water gets cold enough.

Air flows limitedly in space. Magma creates heat and light.

Leaves can burn if an ember is used on them or if placd by a campfire

Doors take on the appearance of the block they’re placed on (except ores and naturally occurring stone I believe)

Iron doors when used with reinforced platforms and any block that causes backdrop can be used to remove backdrop.

Also, I believe gold tools give different rewards when used on ores compared to being used on stone, but that may be old data.


#11

Yeah, you might want to add that ice torches can form ice.


#12

i dont want to put that in since thats a glitch in the game and wont be around forever


#13

I think Dave left it that way since it’s been around since 1.5


#14

however its still a glitch, and unless dave says he will leave it in i will not be putting it in the list.


#15

You should update it to 1.8


#16

Kosmic cupcake, I think you mean 1.6, that was the latest update. :slight_smile:
platinum and titanium should be added, yes.


#17

Wow! 3 hours! This is very helpful. Thanks.
