Basic information[edit | edit source]
These blocks can be used for building purposes and decoration. Columns are not able to move/roll and such cannot be used to build moving vehicles or the like.
How to obtain[edit | edit source]
Despite the item description saying Canvas Columns are crafted, they are actually made in the Processor. 2 Canvas Columns can be obtained by putting 1 Canvas Wall into a Processor. No crafting recipes are required for this. Simply carry Canvas Walls with you in your inventory and activate a Processor that has been placed into the world with right-click or "f" (as the default key) while pointing the cursor at the Processor. Then select the shape that you want the Processor to cut the Canvas Walls into.
Canvas Columns can also be obtained as part of a building kit for a Blueprint.
How to use[edit | edit source]
Canvas Columns can be placed into the game world for building purposes by putting (a stack of) them into your quickbar, selecting the according quickslot and clicking the right mouse button while pointing at a spot in the game world with your cursor.
Like most other placeable blocks, Canvas Columns can be rotated into all directions by pressing and holding R and then pointing the mouse cursor at the block and moving the mouse while holding the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at an already rotated object or block; then all items of the same stack in the selected quickslot will automatically be facing the same direction when placed.
Due to its light color and non-existent texture, Canvas Columns are ideally suited for painting. They are only affected by the primary color of the palette. They can also be put into displays, where they will be shown at a reduced size.
You won't need any Power Cells (Mining Cell) to pick up blocks of Canvas Columns that have been placed into the game world. Of course you won't be able to pick up such objects on game worlds, on player claims or in Adventures where your Permission rank is not sufficient (mainly when you are merely a visitor), which can only be changed by the owner of the game world, claim owner or Adventure creator.
