Blocks.png

Every world and biome in Craft the World consists of blocks, and almost every block is diggable.

Each block has specific behavior, hardness and dropped materials.

General composition[edit | edit source]

All block spaces have three possible layers.

Above the "sea level":

  • the empty or the sky;
  • a backround block that may or may not be placed/to exist; and
  • and a foreground block that requires a background block to be placed/to exist.

Below the "sea level":

  • an unremovable dark rock;
  • a backround block that may or may not be placed/to exist; and
  • and a foreground block that requires a background block other than the unremovable rock to be placed/to exist.

There are few exceptions on rare underground caves that have no unremovable rock.

Minerals[edit | edit source]

Earth blocks may contain minerals, following this behavior for naturally generated foreground and background blocks at the same spot:

THE MOST TYPICAL: Foreground and background blocks with no minerals at all.
VERY USUAL: Foreground block contains a mineral and background block contains nothing.
REGULAR: Foreground and background blocks both containing the same mineral.
RARE: Foreground and background blocks containing different minerals.
IMPOSSIBLE: Foreground block contains nothing, while background block contains some mineral.

Sand[edit | edit source]

20 Strength

This kind of block produces sand, but be careful! If you remove any kind of block under a sand block, the sand will fall down and will block your passage.

Stone[edit | edit source]

Stone tile.png

70 Strength This kind of block produces stone. This kind of block allows water to stay much longer than the other kind of blocks, so it's perfect if you want to create a fishing pond or water reservoir.

Other Resources[edit | edit source]

Each of the following materials can be found on any block that has the related image (which can be found as overlay on any earth block), and adds a certain extra durability to the block making it take longer to mine.

Coal tile.png = Coal 30 Strength

Iron Tile.png = Iron Ore 110 Strength

Silver tile.png = Silver Ore 190 Strength

Gold tile.png = Gold Ore 230 Strength

Mithril tile.png = Mithril Ore 530 Strength

Crystal tile.png = Red Crystal or Green Crystal or Blue Crystal or Purple Crystal or Dark Crystal 530 Strength

Plants tile.png = Leaves 30 Strength

Roots tile.png = Roots 30 Strength

Water[edit | edit source]

Each world has a lake with water that can be used for fishing as well as the ocean on each side of the map.

Every time it rains the water level will raise a bit (except for the ocean), so be careful when you dig, since you may accidentally create small ponds that could be dangerous for Dwarves. In order to make the Dwarves swim without risks, you should use the Diving Helmet or have them learn the swimming skill.

Lava[edit | edit source]

When you reach the deepest underground level, you will find a river of lava that runs the length of the map. This river is lethal so you should prevent the Dwarves from falling in.
