      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.

  1. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    Okay, well, whatever then. The map looks weird, but it doesn't really hurt anything. Again, thanks a lot. You're very helpful and knowledgable.
  2. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    Interesting, I did not know that. Regardless, is it possibly related? Can a boat desync that far?
  3. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    Well, now that you mention it, I have been having another strange, minor issue regarding boats. I have driven my boat across long ocean distances before (although not in the areas in question), and occasionally, my boat is destroyed seemingly at random. As it turns out, it crashed into something very far in front of me (the planks and sticks from the crashed boat appear there), as if my boat's position had strangely been a ways ahead of where it actually was (we're talking like 6 to 10 seconds ahead). It seems like something that would result from server lag, although I am playing single-player. I've not previously registered this bug as it is but a minor inconvenience, but I have to wonder - and this is a long-shot - could this be related? Could my "boat" have "explored" that far ahead of me?
  4. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    As it turns out, the Region Fixer did fix the problem! It found a total of 7 bad chunks, all of which were successfully removed. Oddly, this did not change how Journeymap does its mapping once I deleted and retried that, so that could just be a problem with it instead of the world. Thank you much for your help! This particular campaign of TFC definitely means a lot to me (I have an extended forum thread tracking its story), so I am relieved to have not lost any data.
  5. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    I had not, as it warned me that the program was not suitable for mods, so I tried other options first. Since I assume you know what you're doing, though, I shall go back and try that. Interestingly, after using Journeymap's AutoMap feature, it seemed to kinda... freak out a little... Those weird streaks don't seem natural. I would assume they have something to do with the corruption.
  6. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    I have only used distances allowed through the GUI (up to 16). Anyway, after exploring around the area even with a lowered draw distance (8), I encountered the same problem, which became permanent again. I deleted the same area as before and moved my character back to spawn, but I still got a stack trace, which is as follows: ---- Minecraft Crash Report ----// Who set us up the TNT?Time: 7/9/15 6:18 PMDescription: Exception getting block type in worldjava.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -2 at net.minecraft.world.chunk.NibbleArray.func_76582_a(SourceFile:28) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.storage.ExtendedBlockStorage.func_76665_b(SourceFile:75) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.Chunk.func_76628_c(Chunk.java:548) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.Chunk.func_150812_a(Chunk.java:878) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.Chunk.func_150813_a(Chunk.java:862) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.storage.AnvilChunkLoader.loadEntities(AnvilChunkLoader.java:500) at net.minecraftforge.common.chunkio.ChunkIOProvider.callStage2(ChunkIOProvider.java:41) at net.minecraftforge.common.chunkio.ChunkIOProvider.callStage2(ChunkIOProvider.java:12) at net.minecraftforge.common.util.AsynchronousExecutor.skipQueue(AsynchronousExecutor.java:344) at net.minecraftforge.common.util.AsynchronousExecutor.getSkipQueue(AsynchronousExecutor.java:302) at net.minecraftforge.common.chunkio.ChunkIOExecutor.syncChunkLoad(ChunkIOExecutor.java:12) at net.minecraft.world.gen.ChunkProviderServer.loadChunk(ChunkProviderServer.java:126) at net.minecraft.world.gen.ChunkProviderServer.func_73158_c(ChunkProviderServer.java:101) at net.minecraft.world.gen.ChunkProviderServer.func_73154_d(ChunkProviderServer.java:199) at net.minecraft.world.World.func_72964_e(World.java:419) at net.minecraft.world.World.func_147439_a(World.java:345) at com.bioxx.tfc.Blocks.Terrain.BlockCollapsible.isNearSupport(BlockCollapsible.java:180) at com.bioxx.tfc.Blocks.Terrain.BlockDirt.func_149674_a(BlockDirt.java:110) at net.minecraft.world.WorldServer.func_147456_g(WorldServer.java:391) at net.minecraft.world.WorldServer.func_72835_b(WorldServer.java:183) at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.func_71190_q(MinecraftServer.java:625) at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.func_71217_p(MinecraftServer.java:547) at net.minecraft.server.integrated.IntegratedServer.func_71217_p(IntegratedServer.java:111) at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.run(MinecraftServer.java:427) at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer$2.run(MinecraftServer.java:685)A detailed walkthrough of the error, its code path and all known details is as follows:----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Head --Stacktrace: at net.minecraft.world.chunk.NibbleArray.func_76582_a(SourceFile:28) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.storage.ExtendedBlockStorage.func_76665_b(SourceFile:75) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.Chunk.func_76628_c(Chunk.java:548) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.Chunk.func_150812_a(Chunk.java:878) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.Chunk.func_150813_a(Chunk.java:862) at net.minecraft.world.chunk.storage.AnvilChunkLoader.loadEntities(AnvilChunkLoader.java:500) at net.minecraftforge.common.chunkio.ChunkIOProvider.callStage2(ChunkIOProvider.java:41) at net.minecraftforge.common.chunkio.ChunkIOProvider.callStage2(ChunkIOProvider.java:12) at net.minecraftforge.common.util.AsynchronousExecutor.skipQueue(AsynchronousExecutor.java:344) at net.minecraftforge.common.util.AsynchronousExecutor.getSkipQueue(AsynchronousExecutor.java:302) at net.minecraftforge.common.chunkio.ChunkIOExecutor.syncChunkLoad(ChunkIOExecutor.java:12) at net.minecraft.world.gen.ChunkProviderServer.loadChunk(ChunkProviderServer.java:126) at net.minecraft.world.gen.ChunkProviderServer.func_73158_c(ChunkProviderServer.java:101) at net.minecraft.world.gen.ChunkProviderServer.func_73154_d(ChunkProviderServer.java:199) at net.minecraft.world.World.func_72964_e(World.java:419)-- Requested block coordinates --Details: Found chunk: true Location: World: (-3154,144,-8297), Chunk: (at 14,9,7 in -198,-519; contains blocks -3168,0,-8304 to -3153,255,-8289), Region: (-7,-17; contains chunks -224,-544 to -193,-513, blocks -3584,0,-8704 to -3073,255,-8193)Stacktrace: at net.minecraft.world.World.func_147439_a(World.java:345) at com.bioxx.tfc.Blocks.Terrain.BlockCollapsible.isNearSupport(BlockCollapsible.java:180) at com.bioxx.tfc.Blocks.Terrain.BlockDirt.func_149674_a(BlockDirt.java:110) at net.minecraft.world.WorldServer.func_147456_g(WorldServer.java:391) at net.minecraft.world.WorldServer.func_72835_b(WorldServer.java:183)-- Affected level --Details: Level name: New World All players: 1 total; [EntityPlayerMP['SouthpawHare'/93, l='New World', x=-3010.12, y=143.39, z=-8423.82]] Chunk stats: ServerChunkCache: 925 Drop: 0 Level seed: 2559602177997567568 Level generator: ID 00 - TFCDefault, ver 0.

  7. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    It appears to have not caused a permanent issue this time, so I do not think it is the same error. Why would I get such an error for a high render distance, though? I have previously used the maximum distance for uncovering as much area as possible on my journey map while sailing. Would my recently-adjusted command arguments have something to do with it?
  8. [Solved] Index out of bounds Issue

    Convenient! This was successful. After deleting the affected region (the exact chunk didn't count, as apparently it wasn't the chunk I was standing on that was corrupted), the game once again worked. However, after re-expanding my draw distance to maximum, it crashed again. Apparently, it really doesn't like that area of the map. Is this going to be an area that I have to permanently avoid?

    Java is updated to it's most recent version.I am using this argument. I pretty much copied what Kittychanley said to put there one time, so I don't entirely know what they all mean, but that one is included.-Xmn1G -Xms1G -Xmx2G -XX:NewSize=512M -XX:SurvivorRatio=2 -XX:+DisableExplicitGC -XX:ParallelGCThreads=4 -d64 -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSIncrementalPacing -XX:+AggressiveOptsI am using the new version of Forge, I simply did not update my message. I will do so now, though there is no substantial difference from what I can tell. I have attempted to reset my position both by using an NBT editor and by deleting my player data to no effect. How exactly would I go about finding which chunk is located at that position in order to try deleting it? There's basically like a bajillion of them, and no good way to search from what I can see.

  11. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    It is pretty clear that people here don't agree with me, so I'll just drop it. I want to make it clear, though: I'm not an angry, raging troll, and I'm not complaining because I'm actually having a lot of trouble with it and because I'm upset about dying - I'm a very experienced, long-time, hardcore-mode player who can indeed take out skeletons just fine (with hammers now) when really needed (after lowering my draw distance), and do usually just run from them and ignore them instead anyway. And that's all fine, it's not exactly a game-breaker. It's just something that irks me a little bit; having to ask myself, "Why can't I just MAKE something to fight them?" like everything else. It seems inconsistent with the world of TFC. That is all, though - if you don't agree, we need not discuss it further. I will continue to love and enjoy TFC regardless.
  12. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    I strongly disagree - this is exactly how I treat TFC. I treat it as a game about crafting whatever you need for the situation. If you plan on facing zombies, make sure you not only have an axe, but a second extra axe at the ready. If you're going on a long trip, food and water jugs should be carried. If you're worried you're not protected enough in case of trouble, get some XP or raise your nutrition to end up extremely tough. As it stands, the game can already be played like this. The game has mild RPG elements in the skill and nutrition stats, and it has even more RPG mechanics with its "tech-tree" style progression. It definitely is an RPG - at least, as I said, that is one way to play it, out of many possibilities. I don't expect to force my style of play on everyone else - just that the possibly that my style of play continues to be an option among many, as it always has been.
  13. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    Considering that skeleton arrows/javelins are the only enemy projectile in the game afaik, and that I am suggesting that it requires some timing to use in addition to being a dedicated item with only one single purpose that you have to lug around, I must disagree. Its very limited situationalness counteracts how powerful it would be. This is sort of really getting to the point I'm making about how I see Terrafirmacraft in general. As a game about building up technology from the ground-up in order to survive, I see the core skills of TFC being ingenuity, inventiveness, and preparedness. I think that there should be a tool for every purpose, and that you can get yourself out of any situation by making and carrying the right items. That being said, I think TFC already succeeds at this wonderfully and I am very satisfied with how it facilitates this sort of playstyle that I want. I simply think that skeleton projectiles are one of the only exceptions to this.
  14. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    Defense against them would be the next best idea, then. The idea of a shield that fully blocks projectiles, perhaps? Yes, there is armor, but you still take damage through that. What it comes down to is that I do not think that an experienced warrior would rely on their ability to avoid arrow-fire even if they could and were skilled enough. It's just not a smart way to fight. A good warrior would use his head and come up with a better idea.
  15. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    I think the reason for this is because the concept of blunt projectile weapons are indeed primitive. Skeletons would be weak to, honestly, "throwing something, anything, heavy at them," which is something that a primitive caveman could do. If you're concerned about game balance, you could make it so that you need to make sling bullets out of metal or something, or make only metal weapons throwable - it would just be clear that this is something of a stretch.
