So this is the first time I've played the Kittens Game and I have no idea what I have to do to get iron? I need it for some upgrades but so far I don't get how to produce it. Help??
To make your first iron:
1) Research [Science] 'Mining' to unlock the 'mine' building.
2) Research [Science] 'Metal Working' to unlock the 'smelter' building.
3) Assign at least one kitten as a miner to produce minerals.
4) Assign at least one kitten as a woodcutter to produce wood (fuel).
5) Build a smelter and turn it on.
6) A smelter consumes minerals and wood and produces iron.
