Description: A wheelbarrow is a block that can make Compost from soiled or waste products.
Wheelbarrows come in all 16 base Minecraft colors.
A wheelbarrow can be crafted with 4 Sticks, 1 Bucket, 1 Kelp and 1 Dye of the chosen color.
Wheelbarrows occupy a 2x1 space. The block that is right-clicked to place the item will be the back half of the wheelbarrow (facing towards the player), and a further 1 block is required in front of it. Wheelbarrows will still place even if the space in front of it is occupied - meaning it can clip through into other blocks. This looks odd but will not impact the functionality of the object. Wheelbarrows can be placed in all directions (NSEW)
Right-click a wheelbarrow with soiled Shavings or Manure (poo) in hand to add it to the wheelbarrow. As more of these are added, the wheelbarrow will visually fill up. Once 8 materials have been placed in the wheelbarrow, the contents will disappear and 1 Wet Compost Block will be dropped.
Breaking & Moving
Instead of breaking wheelbarrows with a tool to move them around the barn, they can be quickly picked back up by shift + right-clicking the wheelbarrow. This will return the wheelbarrow as an item to the inventory which can be placed elsewhere. The wheelbarrow item will retain all data on how full it was, so the contents will not be wasted.
