      Server Move   09/13/2018

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord (http://invite.gg/TerraFirmaCraft) is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

  2. Water From Seaweed

    I actually didn't know about not dying of thirst below 35 degrees. I understand the why this wouldn't be a good idea. Thanks for the input
  3. Water From Seaweed

    I find it extremely annoying when I spawn by an ocean. There's usually no food or fresh water and you die of thirst and hunger way too often. Then seaweed was introduced as a food item! This made oceans and beaches more enjoyable. But I still died of thrist often. If seaweed refilled your thirst bar as well as your hunger bar, it would make up for the low yield and difficult harvesting. The way I see it, you use seaweed as an early source of water or as a last resort. As I said earlier, I died way too many times from spawining near an ocean without water. Adding seaweed as a source of water would would make spawning near the ocean much more enjoyable!
  4. Tofu and Soymilk

    Wow this is actually a great idea. It adds some foods that could easily be made, and it fits the theme of TFC perfectly.
  5. Coal into Coke

    Guys I think you're over complicating things a bit. It doesn't need to be so realistic that it's more of a hassle than it is helpful. The process should be somewhat realistic but not so much that is tedious. That's just my opinion though.
  6. Coal into Coke

    Ok I admit I was wrong. I don't want to cause any argument. One thing we can agree on is that coal coke should be added. It is the superior fuel for the forge. Good day sir
  7. Coal into Coke

    Actually I was talking about real life. Why do you think the Iron Age came later down the line in history? People knew about Iron. In fact, it's the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust. I may be a little wrong in saying that you can't smelt it with charcoal, but you certainly can't get it to a liquid state since Iron's melting point is 1500°(A necessary step for making steel.) For that you would need a different fuel: Coal coke. Charcoal just doesn't get hot enough. I may be wrong and I'm sorry if I am so please don't hesitate to tell me.
  8. Coal into Coke

    Actually I just did some research and it turns out coal coke burns hotter. This is because it is very porous which allows more airflow. More airflow means a hotter fire. This is the same principle behind the bellows. It too adds air to the fire, making it hotter. Although you are right about charcoal being able to smelt iron. They have found crude iron artifacts before the invention of bellows or coal coke. It can happen just not as easily or efficiently.
  9. Coal into Coke

    Oops. I just realized that this has been suggested recently. I guess I'll leave it up for now.
  10. Coal into Coke

    Ancient civilizations knew that iron could be used for tools, but they had trouble getting the fire hot enough. The solution was bellows, only you couldn't make the iron liquid, just workable. (This mod has bellows and I think that's great!) That led to the iron age in 1500 B.C.E. But the steel age came a few centuries later. That's when a black smith came up with coal coke, a coal derivative. It burns much hotter and longer than normal coal or charcoal. To obtain it, you need a coke furnace. It could be made out of the already existing fire clay. Basically you put bituminous coal in the furnace with coke (a mineral) and light it. There are other specific steps, but it would make it more tedious than necessary. As a by product you also get creosote oil which wouldn't really have a use in this mod so I wouldn't bother with it. Also, there is absolutely no way to smelt iron with charcoal. It burns too fast and doesn't get nearly hot enough, even with bellows. Coal coke should be something necessary to enter the iron age. The only things charcoal could possibly smelt alone are the ingredients for bronze. I hope you understand what I'm saying, I can ramble a bit. I know this has been suggested once, but I feel that he didn't get his point across. I'm not sure he really knew what coal coke actually was. I think he just wanted it because another mod had it. (I think) Anyways, I've rambled enough. Peace
