== Introduction ==
 
 
The '''firepit''' is one of the earliest blocks used by the player and has some similarities to vanilla's [[mcwiki:furnace|furnace]]. It is where the player will start off cooking [[food]] and creating [[torch]]es.
 
  
 
== Obtaining ==
 
== Obtaining ==
  
A firepit is made by dropping three [[stick]]s on the ground (the drop control defaults to {{key|Q}}), then using a [[firestarter]] on the block under them until they catch fire. It may take several uses of a firestarter (or even several firestarters) before the firepit lights.
+
Firepits are created by dropping (Default: {{key|Q}}) three [[stick]]s on the ground, then using a [[firestarter]] or [[flint & steel]] on the block under them. Using the firestarter may take multiple tries before the firepit is successfully lit. Dropping a piece of [[straw]] in with the sticks will make the firepit easier to light.
  
Adding a piece of [[paper]] to the sticks will increase the chance of a firepit being formed.
+
Firepits that are directly exposed to precipitation will not consume fuel, and will eventually burn out. To prevent this from happening, a block should be placed above the firepit to protect it.
  
A firepit will not light if it is being rained on.  
+
Once the firepit has been lit it will quickly burn out unless more fuel is added. In order to relight the firepit, at least one piece of fuel must be in the fuel slots, and a firestarter or flint & steel must be used to {{key|RMB}} on the firepit.

== Usage ==
+
Firepits are used for making [[torch]]es, cooking [[food]], heating up low-tier items for [[smithing]], and cooking [[sand]] to make glass. Firepits also provide a heat source for wrought iron grills. ''Note: Firepits cannot be used to smelt [[ore]].''

=== GUI ===
The firepit can be used to:
+
* cook [[Food|raw meat and dough]] into cooked meat and bread
+
* heat [[meal]]s to improve their saturation (except for "terrible" meals)
+
* create [[torch]]es from sticks (each stick makes two torches)
+
* smelt low-temperature [[ores]] ([[bismuth]], [[lead]], [[tin]], and [[zinc]])
+
  
The player must supply the firepit with [[log]]s or [[Land#Peat|peat]] to keep it lit ([[coal]] and [[charcoal]] cannot be used in a firepit). Some logs burn hotter and longer than others (see [[Trees]]).

#Fuel Input Slot - Input slot for [[log]]s and [[peat]]. Fuel placed in this slot will move down to the storage slots if they are empty.
 +
#Fuel Storage Slots - Storage slots for fuel. Fuel is always consumed from the bottom slot, and fuel located in other slots will move down if the lower slots are empty.
 +
#Temperature Gauge - An estimate of the current temperature of the firepit.
 +
#Heating Slot - Input slot for heating items. This slot has a stack-size limit of a single item.
 +
#Output Slots - Output slots for torches, glass, and molten metal. [[Ceramic mold]]s must be placed in these slots to catch molten metal.
 +
|}
  
For the firepit to reach maximum possible temperature from any fuel, the firepit's area must be free of obstacles in a 3×3×3 area, with the firepit being the central block of the bottom layer. The temperature can be increased by working a [[bellows]] facing the fire.
+
=== Heating Items ===
  
When the firepit runs out of fuel, or rain starts falling on it, it will cool down and go out (remaining fuel will not be consumed if the firepit is extinguished by rain). To relight an extinguished firepit, put wood or peat in the fuel slots and use a firestarter on it. To use a firepit when it rains, place a solid block above it (no stairs, half-slabs, trapdoors or other transparent blocks), ideally above its 3×3×3 area – in other words, the firepit needs to be indoors or covered.
+
Firepits will gradually heat items in the heating and output slots as long as it is burning fuel. Metal items that reach their [[Item Temperature|melting temperature]] will combine with any empty or partially-filled ceramic molds of the same metal type in the output slots. If there are no ceramic ingot molds in the output slots, the melting metal will be destroyed.
  
In addition to destroying a firepit directly, destroying the block underneath a firepit will cause a firepit to be destroyed. If a firepit is destroyed, it will drop its contents (fuel and products) but will not drop itself.
+
=== Fuel ===
  
=== Interface ===
+
Items in a firepit can only get as hot as the current burning temperature of the fuel. A [[bellows]] can be used to increase the current burning temperature of the fuel, and heat the firepit twice as fast at the expense of consuming the fuel twice as fast. ''Note: Bellows only affects how quickly the firepit itself heats up. Items heating up inside of the the firepit will heat up at the same rate regardless of if a bellows is used or not.''
  
To access the firepit's GUI, right-click it with anything ''except'' a firestarter. The GUI will appear above the player's inventory.
+
When the firepit runs out of fuel, or when it is exposed to precipitation, the items in the heating and output slots will start to cool down, and the firepit will eventually turn off.

Obtaining

Firepits are created by dropping (Default: Q) three sticks on the ground, then using a firestarter or flint & steel on the block under them. Using the firestarter may take multiple tries before the firepit is successfully lit. Dropping a piece of straw in with the sticks will make the firepit easier to light.

Firepits that are directly exposed to precipitation will not consume fuel, and will eventually burn out. To prevent this from happening, a block should be placed above the firepit to protect it.

Once the firepit has been lit it will quickly burn out unless more fuel is added. In order to relight the firepit, at least one piece of fuel must be in the fuel slots, and a firestarter or flint & steel must be used to Rmb.png Right Click on the firepit.

Usage

Firepits are used for making torches, cooking food, heating up low-tier items for smithing, and cooking sand to make glass. Firepits also provide a heat source for wrought iron grills. Note: Firepits cannot be used to smelt ore.

GUI

Firepit GUI.png
  1. Fuel Input Slot - Input slot for logs and peat. Fuel placed in this slot will move down to the storage slots if they are empty.
  2. Fuel Storage Slots - Storage slots for fuel. Fuel is always consumed from the bottom slot, and fuel located in other slots will move down if the lower slots are empty.
  3. Temperature Gauge - An estimate of the current temperature of the firepit.
  4. Heating Slot - Input slot for heating items. This slot has a stack-size limit of a single item.
  5. Output Slots - Output slots for torches, glass, and molten metal. Ceramic molds must be placed in these slots to catch molten metal.

Heating Items

Firepits will gradually heat items in the heating and output slots as long as it is burning fuel. Metal items that reach their melting temperature will combine with any empty or partially-filled ceramic molds of the same metal type in the output slots. If there are no ceramic ingot molds in the output slots, the melting metal will be destroyed.

Fuel

Items in a firepit can only get as hot as the current burning temperature of the fuel. A bellows can be used to increase the current burning temperature of the fuel, and heat the firepit twice as fast at the expense of consuming the fuel twice as fast. Note: Bellows only affects how quickly the firepit itself heats up. Items heating up inside of the the firepit will heat up at the same rate regardless of if a bellows is used or not.

When the firepit runs out of fuel, or when it is exposed to precipitation, the items in the heating and output slots will start to cool down, and the firepit will eventually turn off.

History

Beta
v2 Build 25Logs can be dropped ontop of the firepit block to be added to the fuel slots.
Cooking an unshaped metal in the firepit will drain the metal out of the input slot and into a mold or partial unshaped metal stack beneath it, leaving an empty mold in its place.
v2 Build 40Firepit plays a sound effect when lit.
v2 Build 48Firepit temperatures are no longer affected by height or by having a 3x3x3 open space above them.
78.0Removed the four right byproduct slots in the firepit.
Firepits can no longer be used to smelt ore.
79.0Firepits are no longer used in the creation of charcoal.
79.11Paper has been replaced with straw as the item used for increasing the chance of successfully lighting a firepit.

Trivia

  • In addition to placing fuel in the fuel input slot, it is also possible to add fuel to a firepit by simply dropping the fuel on the block. This way a player can drop an entire stack of fuel on the firepit, which will slowly be consumed permitted the items haven't been sitting on the block long enough to despawn.
