      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.

  1. Looking to study a town for a school assignment

    Cool! I have not had a lot of teachers who would be that flexible (a surprising number of them said flat out they did not believe games could be used to teach anything). I can't really help you since I play single player but I wish you good luck!
  2. Looking to study a town for a school assignment

    I would caution you that Terrafirmacraft isbelievable notrealistic, and while it can give you a feel for how towns worked and may be a good supplemental resource it is by no means a substitute for proper research. If you tell your teacher the community you put yourself into consisted of 5 people you might not get a great grade.
  3. [Rule #4] Additional Fuels for Lanterns

    I think scouring the world for a particular fruit tree is a bit too difficult for something as seemingly important as lanterns, but alcohol is way too easy. I'd like to see a crop-based alternative like corn or soybean oil(I neglected to research the process, its pretty obviously outside the scope of tfc), with a worse ratio of food input to oil output, so that olive oil is the preferred solution but an alternative is at least possible edit: I can't believe I didn't think about it when I first replied, but animals could drop some fat in addition to meat bone and hide, and the fat could be turned into oil. That would be way less sustainable than olive oil but far more widely obtainable, which is a nice balance
  4. Some observations of how people play

    You can get away with vertical supports every 8 blocks by temporarily placing supports at the 4th block and removing them when the next support is in place, since supports give support 4 blocks in each direction
  5. [Solved] Question about charcoal pits...

    If you are using the new B79, charcoal pits changed, you no longer use a fire pit at all, replace the firepit with another log pile, and instead drop a torch on the pile, and when a fire starts finish covering the pile
  6. Some observations of how people play

    I have been playing single player and I can say I don't eat, and i dont use smoothed blocks for the reasons you stated, but I do use torches instead of pumpkins because lighting them is trivial and they look nice, and I've used 10x as many support beams as i ever used in 78, the new behavior is awesome imo. I also use a lot less thatch now that its not a magic wall. i use dirt charcoal pits instead of rooms now as well
  7. Supporte Beam - help please

    I would like to think that if youd left both recipes and made them make the same object there would be less confusion, but then again people would probably be reporting "horizontal support recipe makes vertical supports" 'bugs'
  8. Support beams

    I actually really like the fact that cave-ins propogate into supported areas, it means you cant just build a cheap safe-zone with a few supports and then mine from there, you have to support your whole mine to really be safe, and that makes mining much more interesting than it ever was before. My mines look like mines, and by necessity. That is really cool imo
  9. How do you catch a fish?

    you wait till it says "oh, a bite!" and reel in until it says "the line is about to snap" pretty self explainatory if you are patient enough to ever see it happen in the first place
  10. I fed and got wool from my sheep in 7.6, i think 3 or 4 days is how long it took to be able to shear them, but it worked for me on the current version, so idk
  11. I noticed a bread image on my food prep surface but all the slots were empty so i clicked each one until i found something: a piece of bread with no weight value and -43.8 decay
  12. If you want to edit the wiki.

    Username: Nickasummers I've been playing TFC for quite a while, and I feel like I should stop watching and start contributing to bringing the wiki up to date
  13. I think sequoia saplings spawn in sequioa forests sometimes, but they might only grow there, you probably cant spawn them and get them to grow
  14. Torch Discussion

    I don't want creepers spawning in my yard either, and right now they don't because spawn protection mechanics work just fine. Replacing that mechanic with an only-on-natural-blocks system would be clear and obvious step backwards. I really like the new torch mechanic as it is. My home is always safe because spawn protection works very well, my mines are dangerous, but easy to relight so you can at least see, a long-term light source requiring metal would be a nice addition, but I don't think spawning needs to change as a result of torches changing
  15. I was doing the math in class and the amount of food needed for animals did seem excessive but my guesses might have been off. also, you feed animals by shift+right clicking, not just right clicking
