This article is about a mod.

MDF: v1.21


In the Masterwork mod, there are a variety of new weapons-grade metal materials. This includes alternate industries for metals of quality similar to and better than iron and steel. Note that your enemies will have access to higher quality materials, too!

[edit] Masterwork Mod New Metal Industries

The Dwarven Crucible is capable of creating metals that can't be extracted at a regular smelter. These include decorative chrome and titanium; weapons-grade cobalt; and high-end weapons-grade metals mithril and wolfram. The Dwarven Crucible can also create mithril from silver, and create obsidian from any 4 blocks. Dwarves can further process these metals into high-end alloys at the Metallurgist.

Orcs can make a few specific weapons and crafts from un-smeltable ores at a Damasc Furnace.

Dwarves have even more high-tech metallurgy available once they strike magma. The Great Magma Forge makes items of Volcanic metal by alloying mithril, steel and obsidian.

Both Dwarves and Orcs can use a Boneyard to create weapons-grade Ironbone and Bloodsteel from ash, bone, and blood. Additionally The Orcish Tribal Warcrafter can efficiently make a selection of items directly from organic materials.

Orc tribes can obtain by trade blueprints for the Ashland Glassblower, which makes cobalt and ruby stained glass, and can also process bars of metallic green glass and ebonglass. The Dwarven Glassforge and Gemforge can also make weapons from crystal glass and gems.

A few Orcish clans have been lucky enough to re-discover the secrets of the Ancient Foundry. Deep-bronze is a heavy alloy suited for superior armor and weapons that can crush steel. Orichalcum makes excellent weapons and armor, and is also prized for unique mystical properties.

All smelting produces slag, a waste product that can be processed at a slag pit.

Legend:

Tile Color corresponds to how items made from that metal are displayed in game, foreground and background colors.
Source Ore(s) indicates the specific ores that can provide a metal or basic recipe for an alloy.
Density is used to determine the different weight of finished objects and force of weapon strikes. Value shown here is the raw value divided by 103 (g/cm3?)
Melting point is used to determine if a material is magma-safe or not: magma is 12000°U.
Material value is what the base value of an object made of this metal is multiplied by to determine its worth.
Impact yield: Used for blunt-force combat; higher is better. This is the raw value divided by 103 (GPa?)
Impact fracture: Used for blunt-force combat; higher is better. This is the raw value divided by 103
Impact elasticity: Used for blunt-force combat; lower is better. This is the raw value.
Shear yield: Used for cutting calculations in combat; higher is better. This is the raw value divided by 103
Shear fracture: Used for cutting calculations in combat; higher is better. This is the raw value divided by 103
Shear elasticity: Used for cutting calculations in combat; lower is better. This is the raw value.
  • General Term Explanations (From Wikipedia)
Yield Strength - The stress at which material strain changes from elastic deformation to plastic deformation, causing it to deform permanently.
Fracture Strength - The stress coordinate on the stress-strain curve at the point of rupture.
Stress - Force per area = F/A
Strain - Deformation of a solid due to stress = Stress/Young's Modulus
