How to obtain
Icicles can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by typing "Q" as the default key), but only after the according crafting recipe has been unlocked by buying the Frost Bundle in the Store for Coins.
The Frost Bundle additionally provides buyers with several already crafted Icicles and many other items and blocks.
Already crafted Icicles are also included in the item pack Frost Pack and building kits for any Blueprint in the workshop that include these objects, but all these Item Packs do not include the crafting recipe for the Icicle. Simply obtaining already crafted blocks / objects (for example as gifts from other players who own the according premium bundles) will not unlock their crafting recipe in the Crafting Menu.
How to unlock the crafting recipe
Since the Icicle is a premium item and part of the Frost Bundle, the crafting recipe can only be unlocked by buying the Frost Bundle in the Store for Coins. There is no other way to obtain this crafting recipe.
After buying the Frost Bundle, the (already unlocked) crafting recipe for this decorative object will be permanently added to your Crafting Menu, where it will keep being available on all game worlds, even on worlds where the option "world bound recipes" is enabled.
How to craft Icicles
After buying the Frost Bundle, 8 Icicles can be crafted at a time in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by typing "Q" as the default key) with:
- one block of Ice, found on frozen Oceans or rivers under a layer of Snow, more rarely at the entrance of Mountain-Caves or can be made by placing Water or other liquids into very cold areas
How to use Icicles
Icicles can be placed for decoration and fully rotated into all directions by holding R (as the default key) while holding and moving the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at a rotated item, so that all items of the same stack will then be placed facing the same direction.
Like all crafted objects and blocks, Icicles can be picked up without the need to equip any Power Cells. 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. For more details please read the article about Permissions.
Icicles will not cool down their surrounding. Snow Blowers are the only cooling machines included in the Frost Bundle that will cool the air to -22 degrees, which will bring up a cold meter but in hot environments like the Lava layer will prevent heat meters from rising (and the cold meters will be cancelled out by the area heat as well).
