The most efficient cobble -> stone set-up?

Discussion in 'General Minecraft Discussion' started by wildbeast23, Apr 4, 2015.

  1. Hello,

    Just a quick one. How do people usually set up their furnaces to smelt stone? I personally use the configuration in the screenshot below, but does anyone have any ideas on the most efficient style? Or is this as good as it gets? Please post screenshots/comments below, so I can improve my stone output.

  2. I suppose you could make it more efficient by making many of them, or having it feed into more furnaces.
  3. But for a small-scale I guess that's the best/only design to use? :/
  4. If you want a sweet full residence furnace go to /v je55e! He's got a beast of a furnacs
  5. I'm based in the east wilderness mate :p

  7. What you want is TangoTek's automated furnace design. You'll find this build across the whole Empire tbh... The best part; most Waste Nether's have at least one outpost which stairs end up in lava, so if you build yourself a small platform there you'll have all the option you need to quickly refill this beast with lava buckets (which is the most optimal fuel for this baby).

  8. Nice. I spend 95% of my time in the wild also
  9. Why smelt stone? Silk touch is cheaper and faster
  10. There isn't a way to get more through a single furnace.

    You can split up the work load between as many as you want though. A lot of people use an advanced design with 5+ furnaces and a minecart that splits up the input between them.

    You can also build your design right into other things like a sell chest (see photo) and speed might not be an issue. The small ones can really go anywhere.
