Crafting Recipes

From Vintage Story Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Your classic 3x3 grid crafting system. It is accessible through your inventory so there is currently no need of a crafting table.

The developers of the game would ultimately like to get rid of this system and replace it with more immersive in-world crafting systems.

Important Notice

As of version 1.8 all grid crafting recipes can be looked up in game using the survival handbook. (mapped to keyboard key 'H' by default)


Both methods will give you tool heads that you need to combine with a stick


  • The flint spear is made through knapping.
  • The wooden club requires you to craft a knife first
  • Metal weapons are made through tool casting or smithing

Clay Item Molds

Are made via the clay forming interface. The cost of the items are as follows:

Amount of clay needed per mold
mold or item # clay
Anvil 28
Planter 18
Prospecting Pick 13
Pick, Sword, Hammer, Hoe 12
Axe, Shovel 11
Flower pot 5
Clay (cooking) pot 4
Crucible 3
Ingot Mold 2
Bowl 1

Stationary Containers

  • The basket has 8 slots
  • the chest has 16
  • the tool rack has space for 4 tools

The labelled chest may be written on using certain coloured stones, or with charcoal.

Portable Containers

NOTE: When you throw out a container carried in one of the four container slots, it will take any items it had in it, with it. It can be best to empty your inventory before throwing containers out. The mining bag can only be used for carrying ores, minerals, and stones

See the Containers page for more information.

Light Sources

Basic torches are crafted by burning sticks on a fire, but they only last for a limited time. Other light sources are permanent.

Utility Blocks/Items

Note that breaking the bloomery blocks returns 2/3 as many bricks as they cost to craft.

Stone & Clay

Whole rock blocks are mined by removing all adjacent blocks touching their 6 faces.


Wood can be sawed into stairs or slabs by placing the saw in the crafting grid in a different direction around the wood block (see handbook)


Beds allow you to skip forward a number of hours (depending on the bed) in Single Player mode

Decorative Blocks

Food / Resources

Note: Ore Bombs have a 90% chance of dropping the ore contained in an ore block, whereas the remaining 10% are lost.
