“Oil barrel for storing stuff and various liquids in large volumes. Used to catch water or craft things over time. — In-game description
The Oil Barrel is a large, persistent storage container which usually spawns in industrial areas and sheds. Due to its size and weight, it can only be carried with your hands and has a lid which you can open or close.
Current Uses[edit | edit source]
- As a container to store items.
- As a container to store gasoline or water.
- For crafting recipes that require a container (see below).
Crafting[edit | edit source]
The Oil Barrel is required for a number of useful crafting recipes, allowing a player to dye clothing and convert items into other items. The barrel itself can also be converted into a Barrel with Holes, which essentially turns it into a deployable fireplace for cooking.
Dyeing Clothes[edit | edit source]
- Adding Color (Cloth)
NOTE: The items listed above are only ingredients that can be used for dyeing T-Shirts and Armbands. They must be combined in correct proportions in a barrel along with the item to be dyed. A color chart with the exact amounts of each item needed to achieve specific colors can be found here: Color Wheel by Setup & FalconRP
- Changing Color (Leather)
NOTE: The above are only examples of what is possible. For exact amounts of each ingredient needed to dye a particular piece of clothing, please visit the article for that specific clothing item.
Creating Items[edit | edit source]
NOTE: Fertilizer created using the amounts above is 10%. More of each ingredient in proportion can be used to achieve a similarly higher amount of fertilizer.
- Tanned Leather
NOTE: The above is only an example of how to tan pelts into leather. The amount of Garden Lime required will vary between pelts, and so will the number of Tanned Leather produced by each type of pelt.
Barrel with Holes[edit | edit source]
NOTE: Once a barrel has been converted to a Barrel with Holes, it cannot be reverted back into a normal barrel and loses its functionality in terms of crafting and storage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Full use as an equipment item was added in version 0.56. Prior to that point, the barrel was just an environmental object.
