Question on Sandstone

#1TybisPosted 6/19/2012 11:33:38 AM
I haven't done much in the desert biome yet. As such, I just found out you can make sandstone with 4 blocks of sand. I also found out you can make smooth sandstone by combining sandstone together. I want to build a giant sandcastle.

My question is, "What happens if I place a smooth sandstone block in the wrong place?"

If I smash it with a pickaxe, will I get smooth sandstone or regular sandstone back? Anyone know?

I'm pretty sue we can't get smooth sandstone or chiseled sandstone yet (I've done quite a bit of building in the Desert Biome).

Mined sandstone continues to be sandstone, it does not turn back to sand. I don't know about smooth and chiseled, but I assume they turn back to smooth and chiseled sandstone (just like stone brick).

Thanks for the info.

Does anyone know for sure if smooth sandstone is available in the X-box version yet?

Damn, I was excited when I first read TC's post, thinking there was a building material I overlooked.

Smooth Sandstone and Chiseled Sandstone are two craftable decorative Sandstone variants that won't be added to the 360 Edition for a while.
