(Figured More Molds Needed a Forum Home)

BANG BANG BANG... BANG BANG BANG...

Picturing the Grinch at Christmas time for all that Noise Noise Noise got me thinking...

"Ya Know? They might not be QUITE as efficient as smithed items, but really... even a rough plate is still a plate. Even if we have to work on it later to make it more efficient!"

That led to making molds of some of the more tedious items that seem like they really could have a mold.

  • Metal Plates
  • Metal Sheets (Currently was no recipe before... Not sure where you find them)
  • Metal Knife
  • Copper Chute Section
  • Metal Chisel

You will note as well... Copper Chute Mold REQUIRES fire clay, but makes 4 at once.

Yah, yah, yah... You can argue that a poured knife isn't gonna be as sharp as a smithed knife, of a poured chisel as efficient as a smithed chisel... but ya know... they are both a voxel tall... and this world is run by voxels. So I pour my tiny voxel based knife, and then display it proudly on my poured voxel based Bismuth Sheet.

This mod is definitely a WIP so please leave suggestions. This is my first mod working with models.

actually, that wouldn't even be true, you would use slightly more molten metal (compared to if you'd only heated and smithed it, but then again you would have to weld the used metal pieces together), you may need to sharpen it more often and it may be slightly less durable, but how sharp it is only depends on how and how well you sharpen it... i've seen sharp knives made out of paper or rice (though these were kinda more proof of concept than actually longterm usable), and of course some poured ones too.

though one could argue the sheets wouldn't work as intended as poured metal is more brittle and sheetmetal usually is meant to bent in some way, but as long as we don't have rolling machines that's not even worth arguing about (because smithing metal into evenly (really) thin, big sheets wouldn't work so well either).

btw. i'm REALLY thankful for the chute section mold (though i'm totally aware how bad that might turn out irl), i mean i don't mind smithing some of them, but for bigger projects they are a pain to produce.

similar with plates, after a few dozens (hundreds? idk anymore) i'd even take inferior ones any time. I don't think a chains mold is really necessary though, after all, all you just need to do is punch a few holes in the plates ét voila chains... And how many does one player need to produce anyway?
