Materials and You by Skyla is a book that you automatically receive after loading a world for the first time since installing the mod. It is used as a method of displaying the tools, materials, forge and how to get started in Tinkers' Construct. Since the release of Tinkers Construct to 1.10.2, the book is no longer split into several Volumes and is therefore much shorter but better organized. It also updates if the original copy is altered [due to an update or other reason (including, but not limited to adding extensions, such as Mechworks)].

Introduction

Welcome to the first edition of Materials and you: surviving the first day and beyond. Within these pages you will find the first steps to making the tools and materials you need to survive.

The first step in making tools is crafting a Blank Pattern. It is a blank slate to stamp a shape onto, providing reference for future creations. The patterns are shaped on the Stencil Table or are used as tabletops.

You can then shape a material in a Part Builder with the pattern, then combine parts in the Tool Station. Patterns can be stored and accessed in a Pattern Chest.

Together these make the Tool Workshop. It is recommended you keep all of these nearby when using any of them.

==== Oreberry Bushes

====


Sometime in your travels you will happen upon the bush known as the Oreberry. They grow underground in dark areas, and require close to complete darkness to produce anything.

The berries can be melted down into nuggets and ingots, making them an invaluable source of metals.

==== Slime Channels

====


Slime channels are useful for moving items or entities around. They are used as a sort of easily placeable water and can be paired with bounce pads for best effect.
