Usage

The shovel is the primary tool used in harvesting terrain blocks for raw material or other resources. Pressing the left mouse button "breaks" the soil or other selected block.

Harvesting

Shovels are used to harvest terrain blocks including soil and resource materials. When blocks are broken, soil, gravel sand blocks or resources such as clay or peat bricks will be dropped for players to collect.

Combat

Attacking a mob (melee combat): place the tool in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button to strike the target.

Storage

Tools are items commonly used by players and are generally equipped in the hotbar. Up to four tools can be placed on the tool rack, a specialized wall-mounted storage container. Shovels do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.
