What is Slimefun?

If you have just started using Slimefun it may seem overwhelming or very complicated. You may not know where to start. If that sounds familiar then you have come to the right place!

Slimefun is an extensive plugin designed to enhance a players online experience. This plugin ads over 200 new items and an assortment of multi-block structures. The items include a range of things magical and scientific, from an enchanted stick with knock back 5 to a jet pack to fly through the air.

All the craft-able items in the mod are unlocked using vanilla minecraft experience levels. To obtain the magic book use the command /sf guide From inside the book you can now research different components and machines needed to craft and create everything contained in this plugin.

How to get started with Slimefun:

1. Slimefun Guide
The very first Item you will need on your journey is the Slimefun Guide. Do /sf guide to obtain it and Right-Click the Book to open it. You will now be presented with all Categories Slimefun can offer. In each Category you will find Items that Slimefun (or Addons) have added. You can click on any Item to see it's Recipe. Take a moment to browse through the guide.

2. Researching

You will notice that a lot of Slimefun Items could be locked. This means that you will either need a certain permission to use the item or that you have to research the Item first. To research an Item, simply click on an Item in your Guide that says "LOCKED". Researching Items will cost you XP levels, so make sure to stock up on Experience.

3. Multiblocks
The very first and most basic Machines are found in the Category "Basic Machines", most of these are actually Multiblocks. You can see whether it is a multiblock by hovering over the Item to the left of the recipe. Multiblocks are machines that are built in the world. The 3rd row of the recipe are your bottom blocks, then build above them according to the recipe.

4. Enhanced Crafting Table

This is the first machine you will need to build. You have to place a Crafting Table on top of a Dispenser. Most Slimefun Recipes are crafted by putting the recipe into the Dispenser, then right-clicking the Crafting Table. You can read more about this Machine here.

5. Collecting Dust
A lot of Recipes may require various Ingots/Alloys. You start off by crafting a Gold Pan in the Enhanced Crafting Table. Right-Click Gravel with your Gold Pan and you will get Sifted Ore. Then process your Sifted Ore by building an Ore Washer. You will get lots of dusts (e.g. Copper, Tin, Zinc,...) from that, hold onto those and proceed to Step 6.

6. The Smeltery
Now it's time to turn your Dusts into Ingots. Start by building a Smeltery and smelt those into Ingots or Alloys. You can then use these Ingots and Alloys in a ton of recipes.
