      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 ( 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. Welp, wolf #2 died by wandering into—you guessed it—lava. (I have a lot of lava pools where I spawned.) So far wolves have been a complete waste of time and resources for me. I won't bother with them further until they have a better AI. Or until I forget how annoying they are. :)


    But I appreciate your help anyway!


  2. I have a question about support beams. I found some surface copper and dug a hole straight down to the middle layer of stone, where I eventually found two blocks of native copper. I mined out a 3x3 spot and placed a support beam, then dug out in all directions. All I ever found were the two blocks of copper. After finally using my prospector's pick (duh) I know there is a very large sample of copper down here, and in looking for more advice online I now realize I probably needed to go a little deeper to get the main vein (also maybe some distance x or z). Can I create a mine with multiple vertical layers without getting cave-ins? If I continue my hole straight down five or more blocks and then start to dig outward again, will I be undermining (ha) my existing support beam above? I don't really understand the physics of digging down below an existing support beam.


  3. I see I posted this in the wrong forum originally. Sorry 'bout that.


    Yeah, the fact that they're taking stupid damage is the whole reason I'm asking about feeding them. For a while I was only petting them and not feeding them at all, and I'm pretty sure that's why the first one died. It kept catching on fire and standing in raspberry bushes, and I wasn't feeding it to let it heal. But I have no idea how hurt they are or how hungry they are, so it feels like complete guesswork, with no way to tell whether I'm doing it right. When you say a few ounces a day, what range are you talking about? 2, 5, 20? It seems like if I'm even 1 oz too low every day, they won't heal and will one day die unexpectedly.


    And thanks for the reply. :)


  4. I just started playing TFC about a week or two ago and am loving it! I tried a few searches for this topic but didn't find it anywhere. I found two wolves and started familiarizing them. I had one a little over a third and one about a fourth familiarized. I have a few problems.


    One, I have no idea how hungry they are. I can feed them and they burp, so I know they are eating. But I saw one comment on the forums that someone fed a wolf like 80 oz of food and it was still eating. I would think they would stop eating when they're full. I'm short on food and don't want to use it on the wolf unless I know it's actually hungry.


    Two, they seem to lack a sense of self preservation. One of my wolves actually died because it wouldn't stop standing next to my pit kiln. It caught on fire no less than four times. A couple times I got it to follow me into a pool of water to put out the fire, and one time the fire apparently went out by itself. But the last time it finally burned to death. I finally got a bronze pickaxe today, and I dug a hole under a stone outcrop where they will be less prone to walk directly into the pit kiln's fire. My wolves also can't seem to understand that standing inside a raspberry bush will hurt them. They just stand there yelping until I wade in there and push them out or walk far enough away that they finally leave the bush. I'm not going to waste food on them if they keep hurting themselves for no reason. Or maybe I need to just wait until I can finally make rope to tie them up? I haven't quite gotten there yet. :)


    Three, is there some point where they will eventually start defending me from mobs or something else useful? 'Cause so far they do nothing but hurt themselves and eat my food.


    Thanks in advance!
