Blocks are standard-sized cube units which make up the landscape of any voxel-style game like Hytale.

Based on promotional images and video, it is clear that the world of Hytale is composed of various types of blocks. However, it is unclear how many types of blocks will be present in Hytale when it is released, and to what extent blocks will factor into gameplay and game mechanics such as crafting. As more information becomes available, the section below will be populated with a list of all known blocks.

Block types

There are eight categories of blocks that have been introduced so far. Although the names have not yet been confirmed, their purposes can be speculated:


General

These blocks are widespread throughout Hytale, and make up the landscape of the game world. It is also possible that many of the blocks in this category will also be used in crafting.

Benches

Blocks of this type are utility-type objects, which take up multiple blocks of space, and are used to advance the player in any way, such as crafting or creating objects. These blocks can be used to smelt Ores into Bars, forge Weapons, Armor, brew Potions and concoctions or to cook and create Food. These blocks commonly have their own user interface to aid the player.

Storage

These utility blocks are much like tables/benches (taking up multiple blocks of space), except they can be used to store the player's items. This effectively frees up the players inventory for more items. This category also includes blocks that can be broken and reward the player with a common item that was found within the world.
