    Mechanics Bug/Exploit: Produce Iron from Clay

    While this is a minor Bug/Exploit, it is at least an inconsistency:

    You can scrap any mold into scrap iron or melt it into iron/steel. Since the mold is made from lump of clay, scraping the mold should give clay/lump of clay again.
    Clay is very abundant in many biomes and iron usually is not (at least overground), one may otherwise easily produce all the necessary iron for iron tools/iron armor/iron reinforced walls early game this way without having to use overground iron deposits.

    Currently 1 mold gives 0.6 iron, so 5 molds are one bar of iron.

    ...oh and once one comes across the concrete book one can mass produce cement-molds (they stack!) which streamlines the exploit (you do not need to put each mold into the forge one by one). Then you can even use it as a lategame iron&steel source.

      Okay I played around a little with this and the best way is actually via the glass pane mold because it gives the most scrap iron:

      1) Find a glass pane
      2) Dig up a lot of clay and craft lump of clay
      3) Form a glass pane mold
      4) Dig up a lot of Sand / Sandstone and craft crushed sand
      5) Put the glass pane mold and the crushed sand in a forge and craft as many glass panes as you can
      6) Use the Glass panes and lump of clay to craft as many glass pane mold as you can
      7) Scrap the glass pane molds. Four molds at the same time give = 37 Scrap Iron. The reason for scraping them is that you would otherwise have to put them into the forge one by one to melt them.
      8) Melt the scrap iron to Iron bars or Steel bars
      9) PROFIT!

          What is that supposed to mean? That there is a cheat/debugg mode that allows to duplicate stuff so you do not need this exploit? That's not the point...

            in the hopes of the pimps actually reading this thread about long term exploites that have been around forever mentioned another one, hopefully yours and mine and the other list of dups will be fixed with the new crafting system
