  • Casting (100 units): Copper and Bronze alloy
  • Smithing (1 ingot): Iron, Bronze alloy, copper (silver and gold)

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 1.11

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.

Smithing Hammer Modes 1.12

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

  • Heavy Hit
    When used on the bottom layer: No effect
    When used on the upper layers: If near the edge, it will move voxels the the lower layer, i.e. flatten the work item. Otherwise it will spread apart the voxels.
  • Upset (Up, Left, Down, Right)
    When used on the bottom layer: Move voxels to the upper layer, only possible at the edges of a work item
    When used on upper layers: Move voxels horizontally or down by a layer if its at the edge
  • Split
    Irrevocably removes one voxel

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.)

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. Hammers do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.
