This page offers a guide on how to make a Civil Furnace, which is the upgraded version of a basic furnace in My Time at Sandrock.
How to Unlock the Civil Furnace
To be able to build or upgrade to a Civil Furnace, you’ll need to first obtain the blueprint from Qi at the Research Center. It costs 14 Data Discs but you’ll also have to wait 4 days before you can receive the blueprint! If you’re in a hurry, consider speeding up the process by paying some extra Data Discs!
How to Upgrade Your Civil Furnace
If you don’t fancy making a new furnace, you can choose to just upgrade your current one instead! We’d recommend you do make a new furnace as two furnaces are better than one! It’s more efficient to make a separate upgraded machine so you can have two going at once. But it is cheaper to just upgrade a current one so its down to player preference - perhaps you already have lots of furnaces and you could just upgrade one of those instead.
To upgrade an existing furnace(or any other machinery), interact with the machine to open up the UI, then select the arrow icon on the top left of the screen.
Required Materials to Build the Civil Furnace
|Icon||Material||Amount: Upgrade / Assembly Station|
|Bronze Stick||x4 / 0|
|Bronze Frame||0 / x1|
|Marble||x2 / x4|
|Bronze Pipes||x1 / x3|
|Machine Upgrade Kit||x1 / 0|
As shown above, there are different amounts and types of materials needed depending on if you upgrade your furnace or make a new one. If you upgrade an existing Furnace, you’ll need x1 Machine Upgrade Kit, x2 Bloodstone Cores, x2 Marble, x1 Bronze Pipe and x4 Bronze Sticks. In total, you’ll need the following materials and raw resources for the upgrade:
- 30 Copper Ore
- 20 Tin Ore
- 2 Marble
- 1 Machine Upgrade Kit
- 10 Clay
- 6 Bloodstones
But if you want to make a whole new furnace, you’ll need x4 Marble, x1 Bronze Frame, x3 Bronze Pipes and x2 Bloodstone Cores In total, you’ll need the following materials and raw resources for a Civil Furnace built from scratch on the Assembly Station:
- 39 Copper Ore
- 26 Tin Ore 20 Tin Ore
- 4 Marble
- 10 Clay
- 6 Bloodstones
How to Make Bronze Sticks (Upgrade only)
You will only need Bronze Sticks if you’re upgrading a furnace - this is not a required material for making a Civil Furnace on the Assembly Station. Bronze Sticks can be made in the Processor. You’ll need x2 Bronze Bars for every Bronze Stick. So for a total of x4 Bronze Sticks, you’ll need x8 Bronze Bars.
How to Get Bronze Bars
Bronze Bars can be made in the Furnace with x3 Copper Ore and x2 Tin Ore. You’ll need to build a furnace before you can forge Bronze Bars yourself!
The main way obtain these materials is to mine them in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins.
Copper Ore can be found in abundance in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins. You’ll need x3 Copper Ore for each Bronze Bar, so for 8 Bars you’ll need x24 Copper Ore.
Tin Ore can only be found in the mines once you’ve reached and unlocked at least the 3rd level of the Abandoned Ruins. To get to deeper levels of the mine, you need to search for door ways and holes downwards - most of the time they’ll be hidden behind depris so you’ll need to dig through it. It can be mined from silver spikey crystals. Once you’re at levels lower than the 3rd level, tin ore is very common and easy to mine. To make 8 Bronze Bars, you’ll need x16 Tin Ore.
Alternatively, if you don’t fancy going mining, you can purchase Bronze Bars from Hammertime - the smithing shop. Prices fluctuate in Sandrock, but one Bronze Bar will cost around 45 Gols. Or, you could purchase some Tin Ore and Bronze Ore from Eufaula Salvage Shop. Bronze Ore costs 4 each and Tin Ore costs 8 so it’s cheaper than purchasing the Bronze Bars outright.
How to Make a Bronze Frame (Assembly Station only)
To make a Bronze Frame, you’ll need to first upgrade or make an Intermediate Worktable! If you haven’t made one already, head over to our guide to learn How to Make a Worktable!
The Bronze Frame is made with x5 Bronze Bars and x4 Bronze Rivets - so you’re going to need x7 more Bronze Bars (x21 Copper Ore and x14 Tin Ore).
How to Make Bronze Rivets
Before you can make Bronze Rivets, you’ll need to purchase the recipe from the Commerce Guild Store for around 30 Gols depending on the cost fluctuation.
You can make 2 Bronze Rivets on the grinder for x1 Bronze Bar - so to make 4 you’ll need x2 Bronze Bars.
How to Get Marble
Marble is easily obtained from quarrying hard rocks and the Monument ruins in the desert near your workshop. You only need either x2 Marble for the upgrade or x4 Marble for the Assembly Station build!
How to Make Bloodstone Cores
You can only make Bloodstone Cores on an Intermediate Worktable. To make 1 Bloodstone Core, you’ll need x3 Bloodstones and x5 Clay. You need x2 Bloodstone Cores for both the upgrade and the Assembly Station build, so regardless of your chosen method, you’ll need x10 Clay and x6 Bloodstones.
How to Get Clay
You can get Clay pretty easily from just mining the debris in Eufaula Salvage Abandoned Ruins. If you’ve been mining at all, you should have a decent amount of clay in your inventory already!
Alternatively, you could also buy some Clay from the Ceramic Gate shop for around 12 Gols, depending on price fluctuation.
How to Get Bloodstones
You can get Bloodstones in a couple different ways. The easiest way to obtain them is to mine the hard rocks in the desert near your workshop.
Or, later in the game, you can also make them in the Ore Refinery. You could also just purchase them from the Ceramic Gate Shop for around 40 Gols - but that’s pretty pricey for a material found right outside your backyard!
How to Get Bronze Pipes
Bronze Pipes can be made using the Grinder. To make 1 Bronze Pipe, you’ll need 2 Bronze Bars. So if you’re upgrading your furnace, you’ll only need x2 Bronze Bars to make a single Bronze Pipe, but if you’re building a new Civil Furnace, you’ll need to make 3 Bronze Pipes using x6 Bronze Bars.
|Bronze Pipes||2 Bronze Bars||1:15|
As outlined above, you can get both Copper Ore and Tin Ore by digging in the mines. For the upgrade, you’ll need x6 Copper Ore and x4 Tin Ore and if you’re making the Civil Furnace on the Assembly Station, you’ll need x18 Copper Ore and x12 Tin Ore.
How to Get a Machine Upgrade Kit (Upgrade only)
You’ll only need the Machine Upgrade Kit if you’re upgrading your furnace rather than making a new Civil Furnace. Machine Upgrade Kits can be dropped by monsters. The Alpha Wild Yakmel in the desert outside your workshop has a decent chance of dropping a Machine Upgrade Kit.
Alternatively, you could just purchase some from Hammertime. They cost around 120 Gols each, but this price can fluctuate.
How to Use the Civil Furnace
The Civil Furnace can be used to make even more kinds of bars and metals than you could with the basic Lvl 1 Furnace! You can now make the following (as well as the other items you could make in a Lvl 1 furnace):
- Manganese Steel Bar
- Steel Bar
- Tempered Glass
- Soup Pot
- Chromium Steel Bar.
