Compost Bin

How to Use Edit

The Compost Bin can be opened and closed by left-clicking. While open, it can be right-clicked with compostable items to put them inside. The number of items that can be put in is limited, depending on the compost amount value of the items, but the items put inside do not all have to be the same. If a player attempts to put non-compostable items in the Compost Bin, the message, "This item is not compostable" will be displayed. When the Compost Bin is full, it will not accept any more items, instead displaying the message, "The compost bin is full."

Once items are put inside of a Compost Bin and it is closed, the items will begin composting. This process is indicated by the green particles that emanate from the items rendered inside the Compost Bin while it is functioning. The items inside will take a varying amount of time to finish composting, depending on the item types; if there are multiple items inside with different time values, they will finish independently of each other.

If the Compost Bin is destroyed while composting, items that have not finished composting will be recovered, but any finished compost inside the bin will be lost.

When finished composting, the items inside the Compost Bin will convert to a layer of compost that can now be collected. To do so, simply left click the Compost Bin to open it again, and right-click it with a non-compostable item (or an empty hand) to collect one Compost item from inside. Each compostable item type has an amount value that determines the number of Compost items that can be obtained from it; this means the amount of Compost you get from a bin depends on what items you put in it originally.

Compost Times & Amounts Edit

The following is a list of all blocks and items that can be turned into Compost, the amount of time they take to compost, and the compost amount value they add to the Compost Bin (every 20 value is worth 1 Compost item).
