Core Feature Showcase

Getting started

First of all, wooden tools and golden tools are removed.

So how can you survive without wooden tools?

Fear not, a new bunch of new items are added within this plugin.

Understand the usage of tools

  • Punching wood? Nope. You must use a Hatcher or an Axe for breaking any wooden blocks.
  • Digging dirt with your bare hands? Nope. You must use a Shovel for breaking any dirt/sandy blocks.
  • Breaking stone? You must use a Mattock or Pickaxe for breaking any hard blocks.
  • Gathering fruits or vegetables? You must use a Sickle for harvesting crops.
  • Cut strings or disarm TnT? You must use a Shears for cutting.
  • Placing artificial blocks? You must use a Hammer in your offhand for placing blocks.

Survive and thrive

First, find some trees. Gather some sticks by breaking the leaves.

  • Leaves have 25% chance to drop 1 stick, otherwise no drop.

Sticks are also obtainable from Saplings.

Next, find some gravels. Gather some flints by breaking them.

  • Gravel has 50% chance to drop 1 flint, otherwise no drop, by breaking with bare hands.

Gravel is usually found near lakes, rivers, extreme hills, caves, and cliffs.

Hmm, if you can't find any gravel in your area, try the following method if it's available:

Now you can make a Hatchet with these two items.

Break down some logs with your Hatchet, convert some logs into planks and sticks.

Now you can make a Mattock.

Next, find some stones. No, you can't break dirt straight down to find stones yet, you will need a shovel.

Hence, find a cave, or a mountain. Gather stones, and if you're lucky, get some coal too.

To make a workbench, you need the last tool, Hammer.

It is used to make workbenches and build artificial blocks.(See below)

Get a weapon

You can choose either using a Stone Sword or Shiv as your basic weapon.

Shiv adds poison effect on hit, but with less damage.

Harvest cows and sheep to obtain Leather and String(from Wool)

Hydration

If you are thirsty, craft a Bowl to obtain water.
Simply throw 1 Bowl into a water source, it will become a Water Bowl. https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1qP_RLIYx_kAHQphgijBpM7dXHrHpPhnM

Drinking it will quench the thirst, but purified water is recommended when cauldrons are affordable. (See section Hydration).

Plan and craft

Then, you craft a Workbench like so:

With your workbench, you can upgrade your tools to stone tools.

With a shovel, digging Gravel is less risky to get a flint.

Need to discover the underground? You'll need Torches.
