Now that you have a working dungeon, it is time to populate it with monsters and place some traps and decorations. In this chapter we will cover default items in Metaforge inventory together with other items you will be using.
Each Dungeon must have few monster spawns, boss spawn and exit portal. We covered that in details in previous chapters. Aside from that, its good to add some traps and decorations. Keep in mind that there are limits on how many active traps should be placed.
To place those in your dungeon you need to log in /metaforge and load your blueprints in.
Decorations and traps add greately to Voxel count, there is no need to fill everything with them. Few lights and few decorations to spice the place up are usually enough.
There are few default items that are always in your Building inventory, but you can use /wadd command to add many more others.
/floodfill command is used to paint-bucket an area of connected voxels of same color with an item\block you have selected on your hotbar in Building Mode. Liquids can be used to floodfill, but be carefull, that action can not be undone and neither can liquids be floodfilled with something else.
/replaceblock does same as floodill, but only for one block
Dont forget to /save your edits.
Ctrl+Z is an Undo function.
Use F9 to switch to fly mode, F10 for free camera mode.

Useful ItemsTop ^
To make use of these you would need to use a /wadd command in Metaforge
Mimic blocks are lifesavers. You can use them in Metaforge to copy custom block colors. Does not work on glowing and glass blocks.
Acid - liquid, half a block. Only used for 1-voxel deep liquid bodies.
Chocolate - liquid, half a block. Only used for 1-voxel deep liquid bodies.
Plasma - liquid, half a block. Only used for 1-voxel deep liquid bodies.
Deep Water - liquid, full block. Used under half a block of water for more than 1-voxel deep liquid bodies. There are no full liquid blocks for other liquids.
Important note about liquids, the will not flow in metaforge and they might not flow upon dungeon generation if there is no empty voxel below it. Also there is no need to make 'pillars' of liquid source blocks, that will cause continious overflow and extra stress on server.
Air drafts and Anti-Gravity blocks
Updraft - used mostly in Radiant lairs to direct flight Up.
Downdraft - used mostly in Radiant lairs to direct flight Down.
Side Draft - used mostly in Radiant lairs to direct flight to the side.

Decorations and Natural blocksTop ^
You can also /wadd all possible blocks and decorations. To find a command you need, go to https://trovesaurus.com/deco page, pick a decoration piece and copy its Path from the top of the page, for example
placeable/deco/sign_donotfeed Then, type /wadd in metaforge and paste it in:
/wadd placeable/deco/sign_donotfeed . That will add said decoration to your inventory.
To find Natural blocks, go to Mod Info tab on Biome pages. Each biome has ground blocks and plants listed. https://trovesaurus.com/biome=15/candoria/modinfo
