If consumed, 1 loaf of Bred will grant 100 additional points to the maximal Health points of all player characters for the duration of 7:30 minutes.
How to obtain
Bread can be cooked by inserting the necessary ingredients into a Cooking Station. Cooking Stations can be crafted and have to be placed into the game world and activated (by clicking your right mouse button or typing "f" as the default key) in order to be used for cooking.
Since Food can only be placed into display containers but not into the game world as is, it cannot be bought via building kits for Blueprints, because items in display containers of Blueprints are merely "ghost images", not actual items that you could take out and use.
How to unlock the crafting recipe
The one recipe that you will need to cook/bake many different kinds of Bread will be unlocked by taking Wheat for the first time. Wheat grows from Wheat Seeds after being planted (under fitting conditions). Wheat Seeds can be obtained as a random extra harvest when collecting Tallgrass or Savannah Tallgrass.
How to cook
In order to cook Bread, you'll have to place a Cooking Station into the world and activate it (right-click or default key "f") while pointing your cursor at it. Depending on the ingredients you will now fill into the slots after clicking on the Bread recipe, different kinds of Bread can be produced.
To cook 2 loaves of Bread at a time in a Cooking Station, you'll need to select the recipe for all types of Bread and then insert:
- 4x Wheat grown (grown on tilled soil near Water) from Wheat Seeds, found when harvesting Tallgrass (and/or Savannah Tallgrass)
- 1 unit of ordinary Water from rivers, lakes or oceans, scooped up without requiring any Power Cell to be equipped
No alternative ingredients can be used to cook common Bread. If other types of liquids are used, special types of Bread will turn out (see below).
Cooking a loaf of ordinary Bread will unlock the crafting recipe for all type of Sandwiches in Cooking Stations on this game world.
Please note that only this common Bread (made from Wheat and ordinary Water) will unlock the recipe for (all) Sandwiches. Baking any other types of Bread will currently not unlock any cooking recipes.
How to use
Bread can be used to cook different types of Sandwiches in the Cooking Station.
When consuming Bread (by putting it into the quickbar, choosing the according quickslot and clicking your right mouse button or by dragging this food over your character's model on the right side of the inventory) your character will be granted a bonus of 100 points to their maximum health for 7:30 minutes.
Only one Bread of a whole stack will automatically be consumed if you use a stack. If you eat more Bread (by right-clicking or dragging & dropping again) than one after another, the effect will merely set/prolonged to 7 minutes and 30 seconds anew.
All types of Food can be fed to Pets. Pets cannot starve, but you can only harvest animal materials from them after you have fed them.
Pets that prefer to eat ordinary Bread will not provide you with their best harvest if you feed them any other "special" types of Bread than the common one. Likewise, Pets who want to be fed either Wholesome Bread or Corrupted Bread will not be fully satisfied with common Bread made from Wheat and ordinary Water.
Like nearly all Foodstuff, loaves of Bread can be put on display by placing them into the slots of Wood Planters, Flower Pots, Stone Wall Shelves, Placemats, Galactic Grav-Chambers, Hidden Temple Altars, Frozen Containers, Snow Buried Containers, Holiday Decorative Trees, Holiday Mantles, Cabernatious Cabinets and the like.
Food cannot be rotated when on display, but most display containers can be rotated together with all the items inside of them. Food cannot be placed into the game world directly.
Other types of Bread
Many other types of Bread can be made using the basic Bread recipe by inserting Wheat with different Liquids into a Cooking Station. Depending on the type of liquid, the following variants of Bread can be made:
- common Bread is made with 4 Wheat and 1 foraged ordinary Water
- Wholesome Bread is made with 4 Wheat and 1 foraged Mineral Water
- Bog Bread is made with 4 Wheat and 1 foraged Bog Water
- Tar Bread is made with 4 Wheat and 1 foraged Tar
- Blazing Bread is made with 4 Wheat and 1 foraged Lava
- Corrupted Bread is made with 4 Wheat and 1 foraged Corrupted Water
- Gingerbread Loaf is made with 4 Wheat and 1 found Molasses
How to obtain cooking ingredients
Wheat can be grown (with a Plow) from Wheat Seeds which can be occasionally obtained while harvesting Tallgrass or Savannah Tallgrass. You have to plant these seeds under fitting conditions (on tilled soil with Water or other suitable liquids adjacently) to receive Wheat.
Turnips can be found growing by themselves in Forests or even more often in Swamplands. By putting them into the Processor, Turnip Seeds will be produced that can be planted under fitting conditions (on tilled soil with Water or other suitable liquids adjacently) to receive more Turnips.
Crisphead Lettuce can be found growing by themselves in Forests or under trees in other Biomes. By putting them into the Processor, Lettuce Seeds will be produced that can be planted under fitting conditions (on tilled soil with Water or other suitable liquids adjacently) to receive more Lettuces.
Horned Melons can be found growing by themselves in (dangerous) Jungles only, which makes them rare discoveries. By putting them into the Processor, Horned Melon Seeds will be produced that can be planted under fitting conditions (on tilled soil with Water or other suitable liquids adjacently) to receive more Melons.
Chizzard Eggs can only be obtained from tamed Chizzards or Night Chizzards that spawn on Shores on Shorewood, in Jungles or more rarely in Canyons. You can only harvest Eggs from them after you have tamed them so that they have become your Pets and when you have fed them their preferred type of Food.
Blizzard Chizzard Eggs can only be obtained from tamed Blizzard Chizzards. Blizzard Chizzards usually spawn during the day on Snow in Taigas, Tundras, on frozen Oceans or frozen plains. You can only harvest frigid Eggs from them after you have tamed them so that they have become your Pets and when you have fed them their preferred type of Food.
Questionable Jerky can be made in a Forge from either Chizzard Gizzard or Blizzard Chizzard Gizzard - these Gizzards can be obtained from any kind of Chizzard, either from their Loot Bags or by harvesting from them if they are your Pets.
For Food, any type of Mushrooms can be used; Red Mushrooms that grow in patches of five units in Forests, Woodlands, Swamplands and Grassland; also Brown Mushroom that can be found embedded in Dirt directly under the top layer of most Biomes, especially at the entrance of Caves; and also the rarer Glowing Mushrooms that can be found on the Stalactite layer embedded in rocks and can be mined with an Obsidian Mining Cell.
Ordinary Water can be scooped up from rivers, lakes or oceans without requiring any Power Cell.
