Blocks of Goo appear as smooth bright green blocks. They are solid and opaque.
Block of Goo can be crafted in the Crafting Menu (opened by pressing "Q" as the default key), but only after the crafting recipe has been unlocked.
Block of Goo cannot be found in randomly spawning Treasure Chests, nor can they be obtained as a drop from Creatures. However, an infinite amount of this block can be acquired as part of a Blueprint's building kit. Building kits require the premium currency, Coins, that can be purchased in the Store via the player's Steam wallet.
The crafting recipe for Block of Goo can be unlocked in the Crafting Menu by:
- crafting or finding a Stone Mining Cell and
- obtaining a green Glob of Goo
Please note that at least an Obsidian Mining Cell is required to mine most blocks in the Stalactite layer. However, Mold is a softer material and can be mined with a Stone Mining Cell.
To craft 8 Blocks of Goo at a time, you'll need :
Please note that orange or purple Globs of Goo cannot be used in this recipe.
Block of Goo can be used as a building block.
As with the orange and purple variants, green Block of Goo can be used as a trampoline. The player character will not receive any fall damage when landing on them (fall is broken as though landing in liquid).
With a little practice, these bouncy blocks can be used to jump farther than usual, and as such, the player can create interesting jump-courses.
Blocks of Goo are fireproof - not even the extreme heat produced by a Fire Bomb can set this block ablaze.
Once placed into the world, no Power Cell is required to pick up Blocks of Goo. Naturally, ensure that the player's Permission level is sufficient within the player claim or Adventure (Visitors may not have permission to modify the world). The player's permission level can only be changed by the owner of the game world, claim owner or Adventure creator.
Block of Goo can also be put on display in the slots of display containers such as Placemats, Stone Wall Shelves, Hidden Temple Altars, Galactic Grav-Chambers, Frozen Containers, Holiday Decorative Trees, Snow Buried Containers, Wood Planters, Flower Pots, Holiday Mantles, where they will usually be reduced in size while on display.
To process Block of Goo, interact with a Processor that has been placed into the game world by pointing the cursor at it and clicking your right mouse button or pressing "F" (by default).
Special Blots of Goo can be produced by using the AOE Gauntlet Smash on Block of Goo (also applies to Purple Block of Goo and Orange Block of Goo) when either a Diamond Mining Cell or a Lumite Mining Cell is equipped. All derived variants of Block of Goo can be converted in the same manner.
The resultant block inherits the rotation of the original Block of Goo, has a hitbox of a half-slab, is not sticky and won't slow down Creatures. It will still reduce fall damage, however. The converted block also cannot be removed or rotated with the Gauntlet (the block behind will be selected instead).
These Blots of Goo can be removed if they are in the area of effect of explosives such as (basic) Excavators or (ordinary) TNT. Half of the blocks (rounded count) removed by the Excavator will be returned to the player, with the converted block dropping as Glob of Goo. As of April 19th 2019, these Blots of Goo can also be removed with a second Gauntlet Smash (no items will be dropped with this method).
With update R58 "Elfi's Wonderland" on December 19th 2018, several more block shape sets were added for green Blocks of Goo, Orange Blocks of Goo and Purple Blocks of Goo. For green Blocks of Goo, Green Goo Columns, Green Goo Slabs, Green Goo Slopes, Green Goo Rounded Slopes, Green Goo Stairs, Green Goo Slope Inner Corners, Green Goo Slope Outer Corners, Green Goo Stairs Inner Corners and Green Goo Stairs Outer Corners were implemented.
