fireball Minecraft Item

Minecraft Item

Firework Star is an item that was implemented in update 1.4.6, and determines the effect, color, and shape of a Firework Rocket . Using a dye will enable the Firework Star to portray a different color. Any dye is usable to create a Firework Star. If you use multiple dyes, you can make the Firework Star fade to a different color. In the PS3 Edition , the player must have some dye to try to craft one, doing so will cause the crafting interface to turn into the fireworks crafting interface, which is basically the PS3 inventory with a crafting grid above it where items that cannot be used to make a Firework Star or Firework Rocket are greyed out and unselectable. In the PS3 edition, using multiple dyes chanes the colour of the star, with different orders of dye further changing the colour. A fade to a different colour is achieved by placing the Firework Star back in the interface and crafting it with more dyes in the PS3 edition.
