Latest file for v1.16.2-rc.1: 1-click install

Lets you smelt down scrap/parts to steel/iron.

Iron blooms need 2 scrap to one charcoal.

Blister steel requires 4 parts and one charcoal.

Both types (up and down) of rusty spikes from locusts nests now drop and smelt 6 spikes and one charcoal for one iron bloom

working in 1.19??

Recipes registered correctly in my (extremely limited) testing. Will do some more testing with a friend and report back, but I'd say this one's just fine. As a JSON mod, there's no reason this one shouldn't still work, unless something unusual has happened.

It still works?

is this working in 1.17.9?

  • fixed base game inconsistency where rusty ground spikes did not drop, but the ceiling ones did. Now both drop their version of spike
  • now you can smelt these rusty spikes in bloomeries, the ratio is 6 spikes 1 charcoal for 1 iron bloom

Works fine in 1.16, should work through most major version changes in the future.

still works in 1.16rc4

Would it be possible if you added something for when you find copper arrowheads and be able to melt them down. but maybe only giving a minimum amount back from them, or having to put a few in to make a small nugget. Otherwise its a nice idea, one I really would like to be added to our modded server.
