Coal is an ingredient that is not usedonly for obtaining heat, but also as a compound unit in the manufacture of a torch and a fireball. If you are wondering where to find coal, then it is necessary to read our recommendations.
In search of coal
Coal is mainly found in coal ore, but forit is necessary to obtain it. Coal is located in caves, under the ground or on rocks. Coal is extracted from coal ore, which is located on 5 blocks, do this with a pickaxe. It should be noted that in some places it is possible to find ore with 10-50 blocks. At a time you can get 1 unit of coal.
Production of charcoal
Charcoal is a type of coal thatmade of 2 blocks of wood by burning in the oven. Thus from one block of wood it is possible to receive one unit of coal which is capable to melt 8 things.
If you need to melt more items,then you can take 7 wood blocks, one at the same time to break into boards. When burning, you get 6 units of charcoal and you can melt 48 things. Although, if you just burn boards (of the 7 blocks they can be made 28 pieces), then you can melt a total of 42 things. This process takes more time, but it is more efficient than the similar one.
- The usual coal can not be combined with wood.
- It is impossible to make coal blocks from wood and, on the contrary, from wood - coal (different production technologies are used).
The use of coal
