Usage

The hammer is the primary tool used in the crafting method smithing. Pressing the Left Mouse button "hits" the metal item on an anvil and changes the shape and location of voxels in the metal ingot based on the selected tool mode.

Smithing Hammer Modes

Press 'F' with a hammer in the active hand to view and change tool modes.

  • Spread: (sunburst) spreads metal in all directions over three blocks,
  • Single Direction: (arrow icons) 4 directional options move metal in the direction indicated by the arrows
  • Cut: (wedge icon) removes a voxel of metal.

Harvesting

Hammers are not used to harvest materials, but are used to crush chunks of stone containing ores (mined with a pickaxe) and obtain smeltable nuggets.

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.

Crafting

Place the hammer in the grid crafting slot above the item to be crushed. When using the hammer and chisel, generally the hammer is placed above the chisel, and the material to be processed is placed below the chisel. Removing the (product) from the output slot of the grid uses the tool(s). When complete, remove the tool from the grid, or close the interface by pressing 'E' to replace the tool into an available space in the inventory or hotbar. (If a slot is not available, pressing 'E' will discard the item(s) on the ground.)
