      Only help if you can be helpful

      Hey All, A topic has come up of late in the IRC channel in regards to the general feel of the forums and the community that supports them. Things have progressed further than I would have liked with out this being addressed more publicly because I would much rather have snubbed this out sooner rather than later.. but I have been busy. Here is the general rule I would like people to follow: Wheaton's Law "Don't be a dick." Those of you from the IRC channel know that this is the only rule I ask people in there to follow and we generally have a good and lively time chatting about all manner of things. This is basic rule that just about everyone understands and I am going to expand it to the forums from here moving forward. If you can not help people in a helpful and polite manner then I simply ask you to stop. Now I generally take a back seat to moderating the forums as I like to participate in the suggestions forum fairly heavily at times and would rather do so as a forums user than a moderator. But I am also fairly well known for being the person who constantly puts their foot down and so I am stepping up and doing so on here. If you find yourself unable to respond to a message politely then I ask that you do not respond. This mostly focuses on the increasing level of hostility found within the Suggestion forum as well as the Server forum. I do not care if this is the 30th some odd time you have seen someone make the same suggestion. Or even if the new post on an older topic is one entry above the old one. I expect the members of this forum to respond politely to the user, new or old, and point to the older topic if it applies and even go the extra step to suggest they either add in new information or to summarize the outcome of the previous discussion based upon the new post's entry into it. That is what we are here for, that is why I close most topics instead of deleting them, so that they can be found and referenced down the road. The next topic is the slew of derailment attempts I have seen as of late. If you want to have fun and joke around that is what the off topic forum is for and pretty much anything goes there. I do not expect to read a suggestion thread and have to go through 3 pages of image memes people have shot back and forth. Quite simply this is a waste of my time to read and then have to clean up. Now for the summary. I am going to start taking a more active role, especially in policing the suggestion forum, and handing out warn levels to people whom I see doing this. These will be indiscriminate and applied not to just the first person who derails or is impolite on a topic or response, but to everyone whom follows the lead of that person. As I do not like doing things with out giving you all warning this post shall serve as that warning. If you have a desire to bring this topic up with me then I invite you to do so on the IRC channel. Lets raise the level of quality and grow the community. Let us not descend into the quality often found on the minecraft or league of legend forums. There is simply no need for that here. Be passionate about things, just do not be abusive.

      Offline Servers

      Recently I've seen a few server listings showing up on the first page of the Servers forum that have been closed for an extended period of time, but have recently gotten a reply from a new member who didn't realize the server is offline. To help prevent this from happening in the future, it would be greatly appreciated if you could use the report function on the original post of any servers that have been confirmed as offline, so that the topic may be locked. If you are the admin of a server and plan on taking the server offline, please use the report function on the original post of your topic to let the TFC Staff know that the topic should be locked. If you are the admin of a server that has a locked topic, and would wish to bring the server back online, please use the report function on the original post of the topic to let the TFC Staff know that the topic should be unlocked. As always, please remember to follow rule #3 of the servers forum and update your topic title to contain the version of TFC that the server is currently running. You can do so by editing the OP, and then clicking on "Use Full Editor."

[TFC 0.79.20] TFC Cupelling Mod - get your galena/lead and platinum to work!

4 posts in this topic

"Hello world!"

That's my first original programming on Java. So may be some mistakes in coding was made. Please be patient and write about it.


This mod is all about refining gold and silver by metalurgy.


More info:


In two words:

All TFC methods to acquire gold/silver are untouched.


"TFC gold/silver" in fact isn't the purest gold 999. It's dirty gold with another elements. Just look at picture of gold ore.

To get rid of this elements you must melt gold with lead. By the way that "dirty elements" do contain particles of gold too. So lead will help with extraction too.

Lead is less dense then gold/silver and should go to the top of melted solution with all dirt.

When  dirty lead is above you can move it.

Then solution will become the purest melted gold/silver.

But the cleanest gold/silver isn't too nice material to work with.

So add some coper/platinum to melted solution and it will be still gold/still just another sampling.

Platinum has crazy melt temp but easy disolves with melted gold/silver.


coper/platinum + purest gold/silver = "TFC gold/silver"


:lol: That's alchemy! Lead to gold! inquisition is near! Run!!! :D


TFC API don't provide all necesary features so that's what I come with.



Mod adds an item called "Cupelling Mixture".

Recipe works only with ingots! Place above Lead ingot and Platinum/Coper Ingot below. 

Notice. By ingame mechanics it's a metal so you can pour melted mixture from crucible to ingot mold. Mixture does not stack on ground! So be careful. Store your materials separately! Don't cheat!

Add to Crucible: 1x Cupelling Mixture, 9x Silver Ingots (!!! or 9 Gold Ingots). !!! Don't try to add Lead and Coper/Platinum separately!!! You'll get unknown metal!!!

That's why i created so called "mixture". It's beter be one ingot in terms of crucible overall output.

Result 10 Silver/Gold Ingots.




Instalation: Install TFC. Place this .jar to /mods.


Have fun!!!

How has this not been touched yet?

I can understand that the post is slightly confusing, but in essence, it adds a very useful mechanic to smelting. Given enough feedback, this could be refined into a very well-made metallurgy add-on to make some of the unused resources have a purpose in the game.

I like the platinum idea, as I find I always have too much of it, and it doesn't have a use unless you have the lanterns mod. Although, I feel that the process should be streamlined to be more obvious, and polished better. That would made the features more straightforward and easier to understand.

I really want to see this mod go somewhere

This is really cool, but unfortunately not useful enough for me to download it. I'd like to see more detailed ore processing, considering how much detail is in the rest of TFC. It just seems weird to just toss unclean ore in and boom you've got "pure" ingots. Nice ideas, though! I, too, would like to see this go somewhere!
