Clay Trough



"The Clay Trough can be used to make clay from dug out soil and Milk of Lime. Fill the trough with Milk of Lime, and right-click on it while carrying dug-out soil to make clay."

How to Make Clay

  1. Fill a bucket of water
  2. Add a Lime to the water to make Milk of Lime(you need solution with concentration 0,2% 2 pieces of Lime per bucket of water is enough).
  3. Pour Milk of Lime into the trough.
  4. Start digging any soil (need to have shovel equipped) until you get at least one clump of dirt (your character will be Shown carrying it above his head).
  5. Walk back to the trough and right click on it to start making clay from the dirt you are carrying, one piece at a time. Each clump of dirt dug up has a 100% to turn into clay as long as the tub has liquid in it, at which point you cannot continue and need to dump the remaining dirt.


  1. You may pour more than one bucket of Milk of Lime into the trough, and in fact this is highly advisable.
    The Clay Trough holds a maximum of 10 buckets of Milk of Lime.
  2. One buckets of Milk of Lime can make 20 clay.
  3. Your character can carry up to 15 clumps of dirt if you keep digging to max capacity.
  4. A kiln makes a great storage container for extra clay, even if you don't intend to fire it up into bricks.
  5. Carrying a bucket of Milk of Lime will help avoid the situation of having your clay trough empty when making clay yet still carrying extra dirt.


  • Clay Purity = Milk of Lime purity.
