Steel, in bar form, can be used to produce a variety of high-grade metal goods.
How to Acquire
Place up to two bars of wrought iron and an equal amount of charcoal into a steel crucible. Fuel the crucible with blocks of wood, branches, boards and/or charcoal, then light it. With a full fuel meter, the crucible will burn for 12 hours (real time). In order to produce steel, the wrought iron and coal must remain in a continually lit crucible for 56 hours. If the crucible goes out during this time, or if all the coal is removed from it, the steelmaking process is reset.
The quality of steel is directly equal to quality of the wrought iron used, softcapped by following formula:
Amount of Fuel needed (math by Apocalypse Please)
9 charcoal, 18 branches, or 3 blocks w/ 3 branches will fill up a crucible for 12 hours. 1 tick is 40 minutes. 1 block lasts for 3 hours and 20 minutes.
Charcoal: 9 for 12 hours, 42 for a full cycle.
Branches: 18 for 12 hours, 84 for a full cycle.
Blocks: 3.6 for 12 hours, 16.8 for a full cycle.
