Blocks

Creation

There are three types of ceramic blocks players can craft: Hardened clay, clay brick, and clay shingles blocks. These come in four varieties: blue, brown, fire, and red clay. The blue and fire clay variants can be crafted completely by the player, but the brown and red clay variants cannot be crafted directly.

Hardened Clay

Hardened clay blocks require clay, a firepit and fuel to create.

  • Block Shapes: Only Full blocks can be created. Hardened Clay slabs and stairs cannot be created.
  • Material Variant: Any clay variant can be used to craft these blocks.
  • Appearance: The type of materials used in crafting affects the appearance of the block.

Crafting

Place 8 blue clay or fire clay into the input slot of the firepit and heat the clay to 300°C using the appropriate fuel. As the clay heats, hardened blocks will be produced and appear in the firepit output slot.

Clay Brick

Clay Brick blocks require clay, mortar, a firepit and fuel to create.

  • Block Shapes: Three variants can be created, Brick Blocks, Brick Slabs (half-block), Brick Stairs and a "decorative" chimney block.
  • Material Variant: Any clay variant can be used to craft these blocks.
  • Appearance: The type of materials used in crafting affects the appearance of the block.

Blocks are crafted in two stages, the bricks are formed and fired, then the fired bricks are assembled to form blocks.

Crafting Bricks

To craft brick blocks, bricks of the appropriate clay type must be formed in the crafting grid and fired in the fire pit, as other clay items.

Trading

Building materials traders sell all four types of bricks as individual items.

Natural Generation

There is an underground ruin that generates red and brown brick blocks and slabs, another only generates brown brick blocks.

Shingles Block

Clay Shingles blocks require clay, a firepit and fuel to create.

  • Block Shapes: Three variants can be created, Shingles blocks, Shingles slabs (half-block), and Shingles stairs.
  • Material Variant: Any clay variant can be used to craft these blocks.
  • Appearance: The type of materials used in crafting affects the appearance of the block.

Blocks are crafted in two stages, the shingles are formed and fired. Fired shingles are assembled to form blocks.

Crafting Shingles

Shingles of the appropriate clay type must be crafted using the clay forming mechanic and burned in the firepit, as other clay items.

Crafting Blocks

Blocks must be assembled using fired/burned shingles in the crafting grid as shown below.

Usage

Building Component

Ceramic blocks are primarily used to create player structures. Shingles blocks particularly, have a texture reminiscent of roofing. Hardened ceramic blocks are handy in early stages of the game, as the materials required to craft these blocks can be gathered using simple stone tools.

Block Types

Note: Slab and stair versions of brick and shingle blocks are not shown for the sake of brevity.
