Suggested reading: "The Knowledge"

Suggestions Yesterday, 10:03 PM
I don't know if the devs have read it, but I'd highly suggest the book "The Knowledge: How To Rebuild Our World From Scratch". It basically outlines how, after a world-shattering apocalypse leaving a small number of survivors, we would be able to "reboot" civilization and jump-start the technolog...

0.78.17 Now Available

May 21 2014 09:09 AM | Bioxx in Articles

Version 0.78.17
  • Altered leaves color changing somewhat to better utilize temperature
  • Can no longer split plank blocks back into plank items by hand, must have a saw.
  • Can now convert thatch back into 4 straw.
Bug Fixes
  • Log piles should now properly be destroyed when empty.
  • Disabled wood construct optimizations due to some derps that were causing incorrect rendering. I'll make another pass at this another time when I feel like messing with it more.
  • Fixed errant display number for satisfaction. I forgot to multiply by 100. Everything was working properly but you were seeing display numbers such as 0.3% instead of 30%
  • Fixed javelin ghost items from placing on tool rack.
  • Fixed short reach on firestarters
  • Fixed Ore sometimes having transparent background.
  • Fixed achievement triggers for bronze and iron age.
  • Added missing checks for ToolRack2.blockID. Fixes buggy acacia racks.
  • Plucking chickens deals 5 damage instead of 25.
  • Chickens should now properly eat, allowing them to regen health.
  • Removed ability to put milk buckets in food prep.
  • Cleaned up some horse breeding slightly and horses should now properly spawn with full health.
  • Female horses should no longer cling to their man after giving birth and will once again give him some space.
  • Fixed bloomery validation again.
  • Fixed forge validation
  • Fixed unsynced ceramic mold breaking. Had to fake returning the mold to the players inventory by dropping an item at the player's feet that is immediately picked up. This results in a pickup sound being played and is unavoidable for now.

Version 78.16 Available

May 16 2014 04:06 AM | Bioxx in Articles

Version 0.78.16
  • Bloomery now requires at least 1 ore to be lit to prevent dopes from wasting charcoal :)
  • Sleeping should no longer autokill the player. When the players hunger plays catchup after sleeping, it now drains at half speed and the player will not take damage from this. However if the stomach is empty after playing catchup, the player will be subject to the normal damage rules regarding hunger.
  • Mortar Recipes are now shapeless
  • Ore blocks will no longer all sync to the client at worldgen/chunkload. Instead, only ore blocks that are exposed to air or a non-opaque block will attempt to sync. This should cut down on "Memory connection overburdened" console messages and speed up chunkloading.
  • Many blocks are now flammable if they make sense including thatch. You're welcome.
  • Added some "bad nbt" warnings to tooltips for items with bad nbt.
Bug Fixes
  • Bloomery doors should no longer go flying away when broken.
  • Saddles on horses now sync for the client when closing the horse inventory.

Version 0.78.15 Available

May 13 2014 06:34 AM | Bioxx in Articles

Version 0.78.15
Bug Fixes
  • Stone anvils no longer show plans for copper tools since they couldn't be used to make them anyways.
  • Fixed removing logs from a lit pit kiln.
  • Fixed certain blocks breaking rendering by forcing all blocks to render all sides at all times.
  • Fixed ingot pile dupe bug
  • Fixed chalcolithic achievement not always being attainable.
  • Removed most of the Z-Fighting(Two faces trying to render in the exact same space causing flickering between textures) that would occur with placed planks and corrected the UV maps that they used for rendering.
  • Flint and steel should no longer set blocks on fire if used on a block that can be activated.
  • Wood Constructs now do some operations to render less blocks when possible. If an entire face is formed with identical wood types (8 planks side by side), instead of rendering 8 separate blocks, a single block is rendered instead.

The Wiki has Moved!

May 11 2014 03:34 AM | Kittychanley in Articles

During our migration of hosts, we have moved the wiki from terrafirmacraft.com/wiki/ to wiki.terrafirmacraft.com

Redirects have been put in place so that your old bookmarks will still work, but it would still be a good idea to update them to the new format.

Version 0.78.14 Available

May 09 2014 01:59 AM | Kittychanley in Articles

Version 0.78.14
  • Bushes can now refruit multiple times in the same year if they are within the proper seasonally adjusted growth times.
  • Multiuse crops no longer give seeds when right click harvested. They only yield seeds when broken like other crops. No more runaway tomato farms.
  • Firepits should no longer extinguish if they run out of fuel while having a log pile above them. Instead they will grab a log from the above logpile and use it as fuel instead. Should fix a few instances of charcoal pits not functioning. When the firepit decides that the requirements are met for charcoal production it will stop using fuel. This has not changed from before.
  • Maximum panning per chunk reduced from 100 to 50, silver removed from panning to slow the progression straight to bronze and quick-panning (panning gravel beneath flowing water) has been disabled. You'll now need to shovel the gravel out from under the water as you can no longer fill gold pans from blocks beneath water.
  • Finished spindles no longer stack.
Bug Fixes
  • Added missing workable/weldable/danger message to metal sheets and bloom items
  • Added door sounds to bloomery opening/closing
  • Fixed splitting 100% refined bloom. Plans now auto-select based on input if there is only one possible plan and select no plan if there is none available.
  • Fixed the bow removing arrows from the quiver even if it does not fire.
  • Fixed shift clicking ingots out of molds not keeping temp data
  • Fixed horses spawned from eggs only having 15 health
  • Added ASM fix for vanilla leashes so that they properly recognize TFC fences and don't break.
  • Fixed Acacia Support Beams not supporting

Moving Forward

May 08 2014 06:19 AM | Bioxx in Articles

Hey guys, time for a little TFC sitrep.

First of all, I want to say hello to all of our new fans who've been flooding in recently. We hope you enjoy the mod and stick with us going forward.

Now onto where things stand and where they are going.

MC v1.7
Currently we have a functioning 1.7 branch. This means that we can properly generate worlds but a lot of content is still very broken. However my current thoughts are not very positive when it comes to actually going to 1.7 with Build 79. As I am sure many of you who've tried 1.7 already realize, 1.7 tends to be a performance killer for many folks. Personally I have a very nice gaming rig so actual FPS isn't an issue. What IS an issue however is the terribly slow chunkloading times. If this cannot be solved than I can say that we will certainly not be moving past 1.6.4 for the foreseeable future. I've created a poll and discussion thread to hear what you guys think about this over here.

Build 79
As for actual content in 79, I don't want to get into too many specifics. A few things that we can hope to get into 79 however include:
  • Rewritten barrels that can be used for liquid OR solid storage with a special bonus for food.
  • Expanded Fishing and Trapping
  • Rewritten Sluice <-This was one of the first things that I ever programmed for MC
  • Changing how animals/mobs spawn so that they no longer use the terrible vanilla system.
As is usual these are subject to change and in now way represent the entirety of what we'll be working on in 79.

Build 78
I'm fairly proud to say that Build 78 is one of our most stable builds yet. This is in no small part due to Kittychanley routinely forcing us to actually fix these bugs and even fixing a few herself. Some work has already been completed on a 78.14 patch and I'm hoping that we can say that's the final hotfix. Although we'll continue to hotfix if truly needed.

Version 0.78.13 Available

May 06 2014 01:58 AM | Kittychanley in Articles

Version 0.78.13
Bug Fixes
  • Food without proper NBT can no longer be placed in a vessel or food prep slots.
  • Corrected some derps with chicken and pheasant egg laying.
  • Nest boxes will no longer attract pheasant.
  • Fixed upper half of player inventory drawing too big a rectangle.
  • Fixed a number of issues related to horse breeding.
  • Fix ClassCastException while checking armor
  • Added non-tool metal sheets to heat index so double sheets can be made
  • Changed stalactite breaking texture
  • Tweaked the decay formula. This was actually an undocumented change from 78.12 that was released in a stealth update.
  • Changed the good nutrition hunger death prevention from 50% to 85%. If your average nutrition is above 85% then being hungry will not kill you.
  • In order to prevent sheepicide, wolves no longer attempt to slaughter them on sight and sheep now run away when they detect a wolf or bear nearby.
  • Chicken AI can now deal with not being able to reach a nest box. They should also be able to see nest boxes that are slightly above them.
  • Bears no longer run away when hit.
  • Wolves and bears should now properly damage the player when attacking.
  • Gold pan once again inserts directly into inventory, plays item pickup sound on success
  • Modified water drip particles on stalactites so they don't hang in midair.
