This datapack adds a new way of making charcoal!

To use it, make a pile of logs and completely encase it with blocks. Once it's airtight, remove one of the blocks, throw a torch onto a log, and replace the block (be quick! If the pyrolysing wood is open to oxygen, even for a second, it'll start a chain reaction that can destroy the entire pile.)

Wait one day/night cycle (20 minutes) for the pyrolysis process to finish. The logs will turn to charcoal blocks at a ratio of 1/2 to 1/3, which can be mined, dropping 0-6 charcoal each.

This datapack is inspired by the Terra Firma Craft mod.

v1.2 : by 4P5 02/06/2021 2:01:12 pmFeb 6th, 2021

  • Fixed bug where mining charcoal blocks left a marker behind.
  • Each wood block will now check to make sure it's not touching air before converting. This way it won't try to convert your house.
  • You can now drop a torch on the lowest block, and the chain reaction will continue up! It previous stopped at one block up.
  • Changed drop rate to 1-7 per block

Good morning, do you intend to update to 1.18?

Because I found an awesome way, but unfortunately it doesn't work in the version I play

This have a lot of sense and should be at the oficial game. In addition would amaizing that when you burn a tree ro forest some random coal blocks could appear

Hey! Loving the pack so far! Playing it with some other datapacks to make a modded-esque experience. I did have a concern though: I notice that there seems to be lingering area of effect clouds after I finish mining the charcoal blocks. Will these disappear before long?

I'm glad you're enjoying it! Thanks for notifying me of that bug, I'm working on a fix now. In the meantime you can use /kill @e[​type=area_effect_cloud,tag=4P5.charcoal.finished] to remove all the area effect clouds that relate to the charcoal block.

Do you play Vintage Story? This mechanic is very similar to one in that game. I love it!

I haven't heard about Vintage Story, thanks for introducing me to it! It seems to be inspired by the Minecraft mod TerraFirmaCraft, which is what I based this on.

Yeah it's a great game! It's actually made by the same developers as TerraFirma!
