Acquiring Clay

Left, Blue Clay; Right, Fire Clay



Clay deposits are commonly found in temperate climates and can be harvested with bare hands or a shovel. There are different types of clay in the world, blue clay and fire clay. For tool molds and items like bowls and pots, either kind of clay may be used, but the bloomery must be built with fire clay bricks.

Shaping Molds and Items

  1. Select clay in the active hand.
  2. Aim the white crosshairs on a solid surface and Sneak + Right Mouse Button to open the clay forming menu and select the item to be crafted.
  3. The clay forming grid will appear on the selected surface. To craft the chosen mold or item, the 'green' colored voxels must be filled using (right mouse button to add) and clay removed from any 'orange' colored voxels using (left mouse button to remove) to create each layer of the form. As each layer of the clay item is completed, the next layer will appear above the last. It's helpful to sit on the ground (press 'G') while shaping clay.
  4. When all layers of the item or mold are completed, the dialog box will disappear and the formed items will jump into the inventory of the player who placed or removed the last voxel of clay. Formed items can be placed on a surface before firing and picked up by "breaking" the item (left mouse button). Breaking will not destroy an item.
