No, not the ones that are in vanilla :P basicaly, they are stone structures with lava and glass that you throw items into, right click, and make new items with.


the way to construct one is:

(with 12 smooth stone, 1 glass, 1 space for lava as follows...)

I can't get a decent ascii example thing working, so basically you put 4 stone near each other so that they form a vertical tube, then repeat 2 more layers. put lava on the bottom, glass in the middle, and leave a space on the top.


You throw the items onto the glass, right click it, and it trasfroms them into whatever the recepie makes.


The current recepies are:


rose + wool = redwool

dandelion + wool = yellowwool

any color wool + bonemeal = white wool (so you can effectively recolor extra colored wool)

9 netherrack = 1 netherbrick

1 bucket of water, 1 sugar, 1 dirt = 1 cocoa bean

1 wool = 4 string

Feel free to suggest more recepies! :D


Edit (and tidying) by Hank: maybe you guys can think of suitable recipes for gold, iron, gunpowder/sulphur, obsidian, lava, even bedrock? :)

Hank was saying this morning that the cauldron was throwing recipe errors. I take it that it has been fixed?

Yep, I figured it out this morning and fixed it


I'd named the file recipes.txt it needed to be Cauldrons.txt

bedrock should be hard to make imo, especially since we are full survival, i'm thinking more like a stack of obby, and a block of diamond :D, also, why is it rose + wool = colored, when a rose gives two dye, making two red wool, and it takes more effort to use the cauldron then your inventory crafting

So you can directly recolor somethin red, although withe the bonemeal+wool recepie it is kinda pointless :P and that much for one bedrock? seems kinda steep imo :/

bedrock is the ultimate protection, if you dont' wanna pay town costs, and you have a bedrock room with your chests, with an lwc locked door. Safest possible scenario

Bedrock should be 8 obby and 1 diamond. Seems fair.

Bedrock should be 64 stone and 32 iron. Seems more realistic.

Stone and iron are both very common. Obby being the 2nd hardest to break should be included.

Ok, having read all the input so far I've reached a few conclusions....


1) Getting bedrock should be hard (no pun intended) but not ridiculously so, therefore I think 64 obby is overkill, but 5 or 8 is too little.  I'm thinking more like 16.  People will probably need a few dozen bedrock for even the most basic of things.


2) It shouldn't be boring/tedious, which is what having to get 64 obby would be, but if 16 sounds like too few I think we could compromise by having a more "complicated" recipe.  More ingredients etc.


3) Bedrock should not be the most valuable item on the map, that should still be diamond blocks IMO.  Having bedrock as most valuable seems counterintutitive to me.  Also IMO it doesn't look as nice as stuff made from diamond blocks.  I think d-block should still be the ultimate symbol of wealth, but bedrock could be #2.  Maybe bedrock blocks could have somewhere between 40 and 80% of the value of d-blocks, no more though.



I think making the recipe more complicated should be as follows-


16 obby, 1 diamond, 8 redstone, 1 lava bucket, x amount of slimes and y amount of netherrack....


Why?  1) More interesting.  2) Gets people thinking about redstone and slimes, maybe using any leftovers for what they were intended for - ATM both don't seem to be taken very seriously which I think is a great shame.  Redstone constructions can be amazing, as can sticky-piston stuff. 3) Encouraging more journeys into the nether.  4) It becomes a multi-stage process like the potion stuff - so you go looking for diamonds, obby, lava, netherrack, redstone etc, but you use the cauldrons to make the other recipe (slimes), if that makes sense? :)


We could even add a recipe for redstone.  But I definately think we need one for slimes.  They're just too rare ATM.


You could think of redstone as bringing somekind of electrical conductivity into the bedrock manufacture, slimes IDK, but they're kinda exotic as for the lava we all know how "magical" that is lol.  This is my thinking on the subject anyway. 


So you see, we're "killing multiple birds with 1 stone" :)


As for redstone or slime recipes IDK...what do you think?

I don't think a recipe for redstone is needed, if your at the right depth redstone is just as common as iron and coal it seems. 

Slims on the other hand or sooooo rare, so i think we should have a recipie for that....hmmmm

Maybesomething like: 

Water Bucket + 10 Wheat Seeds + Gunpowder?

Bedrock on the other hand i think should be like:

15 Obsidian + 1 Redstone dust + 1 Slimeball + 1 lava bucket + 1 Diamond. It would still be expensive, but a block of diamond would still be worth more.

Also maybe it goes without saying but we'd log placement and locaion of bedrock (as we do with TNT and lava), so we'd know if you decide to encase your neighbour's house in it for lols while they were still in there :)

Have y'all been using the cauldrons much so far?


Anyway, here's a video explaining exactly how to use them, really this should have gone in the OP....

I disagree. I get slime all the time for digging clay. Without the use of excavation it is rare so maybe 1 diamond and water to make 2 slime?

But of course you've probably got a very high exca-level to do that?

Yeah slimeballs have got that kinda organic feel about them.  Maybe we could find a use for rotten flesh from zombies in a recipe or even in that one?

Some people can't place lava, like meh. Could you either place lava for me, or unlock it for some people you trust etc?

You should be able to do it as a SeniorMod.  In fact everyone above VIP should be able to do it, so I must have a broken setting in WorldGuard somewhere *goes looking*


Also, with this new cauldron stuff you don't place stuff, you just throw it onto the glass block inside, and everyone should have permissions for that :)
