Wouldn’t it be funny if the knife dulled over time, and you had to use the steel file to sharpen it? I feel like once u create knives and saws it just becomes kind of useless but that would be a cool idea, also would prevent some griefing too
Its actually not that bad of an idea. One of the old common griefing tactics was to hide a knife far away from camps then use it multiple lives to grief. The only problem would be that griefers could just scrap the files then hide them.
the files get a bit useless after having knifes and saws. ive got so many files from santa and now i have 8. i cant do that much with them. wish i could melt them and use the iron again.
@Vadalia i like the idea of more uses for files.
I think you can just put the file in a bowel and it treats it like its scrap metal. Then you can add coal to it. Might be wrong though haven’t had to do smithing in a while lmao
@Mandrake cant put files in a bowl tho. do i have to put coal first?
You can’t put steel files in the bowl if they already have been chiseled. That only works on blanks.
Just checked using the tools server. Doesnt seem you can do it anymore. I guess it got patched out at somepoint probably because griefers scraped them when we needed them the most. But i do remember doing it on yah in my early days when i was griefing when i got bored. My guess is it got patched out when tool smithing was reworked and since i dont remember it being talked about much i guess it was a unintentional recipe.
Yah you cant. I do remember being able to though at one point so i think it was unintentional
i had also in mind you can scrap the file. maybe mandela effect and it was always only blanks.
Nah i distinctly remember scrapping finished files for a while. Especially when i was smithing in early camps and didnt need the file anymore i would scrap it to make a more useful tool like a pickaxe or a hoe if we already had a pickaxe.
I think it was a minor tweak inbetween patches at some point that just wasnt mentioned. Or i could have just dreamed doing it for so many lives. At one point i spent so much time in the game id have a dream about almost every night lmao
