How to Pick Up Antique Ovens
Antique ovens can be heavy, so players need to be careful when picking them up. The weight of an antique oven is around 40, and the maximum inventory a player can carry is 50. This means that players need to have less than 10 in their inventory to pick up an antique oven.
To pick up an antique oven, the player needs to find the pick-up option at the top left of their screen and then hover over the oven they wish to pick up. The oven will then be added to the player’s inventory.
How to Use Antique Ovens
Antique ovens can be used for cooking or starting fires. However, they are not as effective at starting fires as regular ovens. It is recommended that players use wood or branches as fuel for the stove, as this will be more effective than using zombie clothes.
To light an antique oven, the player needs to add wood as fuel and use a lighter to start the fire. Once the fire is started, the oven will begin to heat up. The radius of an antique oven is up to 5 tiles, so players should be sure to position the oven in an area where it will be effective.
Despite their lower effectiveness at starting fires, antique ovens are still safe to use. They will not start a fire, even if they are located inside a home. In fact, antique ovens can be used to warm up a room during winter.
In addition to their use as a heat source, antique ovens can also be used for cooking. Players can use the oven to cook various items, such as food and medical supplies. Some examples of items that can be cooked in an antique oven are:
- Hot Drink: Provides a small boost to the player’s thirst and happiness.
- Soup: Provides a moderate boost to the player’s hunger and thirst.
- Stew: Provides a large boost to the player’s hunger and happiness.
- Medical supplies: Crafting a sterilized bandage requires the combination of a cooking pot, bandages, and boiling water. Once the water starts to boil, the combination of the two items can be crafted in the medical page of the synthesis table.
However, players should keep in mind that the oven’s fuel supply will not last forever, so they should not rely on it as their sole source of heat or cooking. It is also important to conserve fuel by only using the oven when necessary, and by using wood or branches as fuel instead of zombie clothes.
To maximize the effectiveness of the antique oven, players can follow these tips:
- Position the oven in an open area to maximize the heating radius.
- Position the oven in an indoor area to slow the rate of temperature decline
- Use wood or branches as fuel instead of zombie clothes.
- Cook multiple items at once to maximize the use of fuel and save time.
- Conserve fuel by only using the oven when necessary.
Overall, antique ovens can be useful items for players in Project Zomboid. They provide a source of heat and can be used for cooking, but players should be aware of their limitations and use them wisely.
