Steel, in bar form, can be used to produce a variety of high-grade metal goods. It can be used as any metal, common metal and hard metal.

How to Acquire

See: Steelmaking.

Place up to two bars of wrought iron and an equal amount of Coal, or Black Coal 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:

[math]\frac{_{q}Crucible + _{q}Charcoal + _{q}AvgFuel}{3}[/math]

Amount of Fuel needed

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.

Once a Bar of Steel is over 80% done, it will require no additional fuel, given that the crucible is full at that time.

This point should be exactly 44.8 hours into the Steelmaking process, meaning barely more than 12 hours remain.
