Construction Foam (CF) is a quick and effective construction material for defending against mobs. Players are able to break the foam before it hardens in no time. However, broken foam cannot be harvested.

After it's placed, it will eventually turn into a solid CF Wall, which is explosion resistant and paintable. With an explosion resistance of 60, it will resist TNT, ITNT, and Creepers, but Reinforced Stone is a better choice for protecting against things like nuclear reactor explosions and lasers.

Wall blocks harden at varying rates. Foam hardens at 0.6% per 25 seconds, per light level. Foam placed in total darkness will never solidify. Right-clicking on foam with a block of sand will cause the foam to harden instantly, but the block of sand will be consumed in the process.

Players, mobs, and animals can walk through foam until it fully hardens (although the risk of suffocation or getting stuck in a new wall is high).

CF can also cover & harden around a placed cable, creating a block that functions as a cable but looks like a CF wall. When a "CF-cable" block is destroyed, it drops the cable it was created with.

Recipe and Use

To create Foam, create CF Powder as described below, the powder can be then converted into Construction Foam with a Canning Machine, and filled into the CF Sprayer or CFPack. 1000mB of water is enriched with 1 CF Powder to make 1000mB of Construction Foam.

TheCF Sprayer requires 100mB of Construction Foam per block. Therefore, one CF Powder is good for 10 blocks.

The sprayer's capacity can be increased with the use of a CFPack. Using the CF Sprayer will place a glob of multiple blocks of foam. Using scaffolding will allow you to arrange those blocks into desired shapes, the most common being a straight line. See the CF Sprayer page for more details.
