    I really like playing The North mod, especially this new version, but I’ve hit a snag.
    I’m playing North 7 Version 712 (1.0.7) with Speed Aging Version 1 (1.0.7) loaded above North 7. I recently built a Blacksmith Shop after using 2 Smith’s Workplaces to begin. I wanted to upgrade to making Steel Tools, but my Blacksmith Shop requires Wood, Charcoal and STEEL Bars for this. I got the icon for “The materials required to perform work are not available”. No steel tools are being built and the blacksmith is idling. I mined coal but that did not help. I have plenty of iron ore, iron bloom, iron bars and charcoal. How do I make these “steel bars”. Everything else in this game is working well. What am I missing?

    Hi and welcome!

    Steel is something people can’t make in the North by themselves, not yet. So they have to buy the raw material to forge steel tools until they manage to build a blast furnace which is on top of my to do list.

    AHA! I’m relieved now that I know I’m not missing something simple. I guess I’ll buy some Steel bars from a merchant and forge on! I’ll anxiously await a blast furnace to build. Will that come in the form of a mod available from Steam, I hope?
    Thank you so much for your quick response. I’m glad you’re back!
