      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: 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.

  1. My Survival World

    Wanted to have this up much sooner but really wanted to have at least 1 complete building in survival to show and that took longer than I expected. So started 79.10 early Nov and this is my progress so far. (Due to the pic limit this will take up more than 1 post.) First Night I hid out on this island decided it be cool to have an island beach house. First Shelter It's so tiny, have a few large vessels (You can see my vessel with fresh water) and a firepit in there. 2nd Shelter At this point I've designed my beach house in creative using the woods available (Hickory/WhiteElm/Chestnut/Aspen/Sequoia) Main building is Aspen with Hickory Planks and Logs. Sometime around now I've also designed a blacksmith in creative and I really want to get that going. I also had the brilliant idea to use my SSP seed and start a new creative world so I can work out a location for barn & pastures for the animals. Blacksmith Outline Shoreline I'm standing on the wall of the beach house looking back over the land. You can see the outline for the blacksmith and the start of barn. At this point I'm into my 2nd game year and I really want new trees especially for the blacksmith as I'd love to use Douglas Fir & Birch. So lots of exploring is had and... PIGSPLOSION! I find Pine/Ash/Birch/White Cedar and decide I can use the pine in place of the Douglas so back to construction. Blacksmith You know what would be great for more storage, a basement. Didn't think of that in my creative world design. Also start on a red and white barn, you can see the island/beach house in the background at this point I've completely stop construction on it. Barn A lot of in game time has passed we're in the 3rd year I've gone exploring again and... DOUGLAS FIR! (That pig is so dead, got to close to the wild wolves.) Somewhere I also decided I want to build the beach house out of White Elm and Willow so start on a design in creative. Which means I need to remove the Aspen house I had been working on but I'll need somewhere to move. Time to stop slacking and get that blacksmith done. Little bit of barn progress
  2. Vanilla vs TFC battle

    Maybe the victory of TFC Steve over the broken diamond armour. Or continuing the theme of the first one you did showing the bloomery and anvil you could have Steve working a loom, though not sure that'll be as epic. Something, something epic bear battle.
  3. Vanilla vs TFC battle

    Amazing! And TFC of course no question. Did I mention that they're amazing hope to see another one soon...maybe?
  4. Rivendale A TFC Town

    Wow fantastic house, I agree with Topminator it needs some neighbors.
  5. Single player world gallery

    Looks awesome! Gotta love the colour palette options with TFC. Something about seeing the world covered in snow is so pretty, although after looking through the pics I think my toes are cold now.
  6. My Survival World

    Whelp, WoW is a trap. (Also I got a job! Huzzah!) So haven't been in the world in a while. What I found was that 1 of my small projects wasn't complete the 2nd not even started and I hadn't even completed my iron anvil. With all the updates I'm behind not to mention a ton of awesome addons that are new thinking I'll just start over. Still really want to complete the buildings so I may yet do that in a future world but in the meantime here are a handful of screen shots of what I got done in SSP and 1 that I had planned out in creative.(White Elm needs more love ) Miner Shack Small Project 1 Missing the stone I wanted for this one (chimney) and the dirt I used in the creative picture I don't have in SSP. Hardest part was placement since It's above my copper mine which I had already started so placed the wall to line up (hopefully) with where I wanted the access shaft to be. Exterior Complete pic from Creative The Inspiration by Charley Dameron Big Project aka why you hate white elm? Still planning to build this one, guess this can be a teaser Rough Design from Creative Only a handful of pics and I know someone wanted to see some interior pics of the blacksmith I might hop into the creative world and put together a "What I would have done". So I guess this is it time to update and begin anew. (Didn't even finish the barn but man was I happy when I found those reeds.)
  7. What are you reading?

    Well just watched Drunk Kitty ep 50 and it made me want to talk books so here it is. I'm not going to do a plot summary or personal review just a very basic love it or hate it. Last book I read was The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman & Jay Bonansinga I know it's been out since 2012 but only just got around to it and unfortunately I was totally disappointed too. I'm not saying it was terrible and to not read it but for me I had expected more. (First mistake ) Read the graphic novels up to vol. 15-ish when I stopped. Basically someone died and it was a "Annnnnnd I'm done." moment. Last book I read and loved Ready Player One by Ernest Cline I think it's a very niche book but anyone who plays video games can enjoy it. Currently reading Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. I noticed Netflix had it but decided to read it first and it's been sitting on my shelf for a while. Though b79 has been taking up my free time really need to sit down and get passed chapter 1. lol Recommendation This is mostly directed at Kitty but anyone who enjoys a good horror story check out author Joe Hill if you haven't already. He's mostly known for Horns at this point due to the movie but you probably couldn't go wrong reading any of his books. Little bit of additional information he's also Stephen Kings son. (I scanned the first 5 pages for a similar topic, didn't see any so hopefully I've not gone blind)
  8. My Survival World

    Of course, I myself think I first saw that kinda of stone path in one of Spud Gunn's let plays. Yeah it is a balancing act with the stone work, it helps that the building uses only slabs or stairs no detailed blocks at all. Though the next big house uses tons of lumber which I think will be a problem and the small project makes use of a few detailed blocks but it's not all that close to these buildings so I don't think it'll be a problem.
  9. Whelp I hate/love my sister but yesterday she talked me into joining her for a return to Azeroth. (Why aren't scrolls of resurrection a thing anymore, pity.) So tonight I'll shall be patching, but thought I'd make a post see if anyone else has fallen into the new expansion/peer pressure trap. Played closed beta (Sister had gotten in let me muck around for a while.) Enjoyed it, bought it at release though quit after 3 months (We both did.) due to the fact I was also playing FFXI and I just didn't have time for 2 MMO's and FFXI had WAY more content at the time and WAY less bugs. lol Two years later we quit FFXI and found ourselves back in Azeroth and it's been an on again off again relationship ever since. Wrath is when we got into raiding and it was the best thing ever. With all the usual ups and downs. (Freaking drama) into Cata things began to fall apart. Sadly. Good times, good friends. I've already heard from her that a few of them still play so that'll be nice.
  10. Pax East!

    I am jealous. lol Have max fun for those of us who can't go. ALL THE FUN TIMES!
  11. Once Again into the World. [Topic WoW]

    Woo *highfive* Sucked in by family. lol I logged on for a moment ended up just looking to see if Winter Veil had any new pets to try and collect. Gotta catch em' all! (It's a trap) Waiting for the sister to be online before actually jumping into WoD stuff. Soon~ Edit: Garrison is awesome, feel like that's going to suck me in. First dungeon was pretty quick and I really like the new loot system.
  12. animals breed naturally

    I'm pretty sure animals can't die of starvation and there is no guarantee that a predator will also spawn nearby. I don't disagreeing with the principal of the thing, wild animals should be able to breed in order to be believable/realistic however I simply feel/think it will break the game. To princeofmadness, there is already a limit written into the vanilla code. The Disappearing Sheep See Kitty's posts. Edit: It just occurred to me you might mean to add a mechanic to allow animals to die of starvation, that would create other problems. What if you can't find grain? What if you just have very little grain, only enough to feed 1 animal? If you have a large farm how do you make sure you've actually feed all your animals? You could easily find yourself in a tough spot early game with as few as 2 animals. It's talked about here Animal Feeding Trough briefly I think. This sums up my thoughts on the matter of 'animal hunger' But that is a whole other topic.
  13. animals breed naturally

    I'm pretty sure this would in the end be a very bad idea. I recall the horse apocalypse where every female horse spawned pregnant I think even when born a female horse would be pregnant. Creating a lot of lag on servers. Horses everywhere. Your suggestion would multiple that ten-fold, in my SSP I have many wild animals in the area around me (Pigs/Wolves/Deer/Horses) Where 2 or 3 pigs become 8-12, then next year 20-60. (Assuming 1 female pig to start then a small litter of 8 pigs with half of them being female.) The game would become unplayable. As for the second point, I honestly like the additional game play mechanic adding another layer to animal care and maintenance.
  14. Problem about making a TFC Server with mods

    Well might make your life easier to go back a step. Just set up a TFC server no other mods. Then from there you can add a mod and see if it causes problems. To Below Edit Wiki is your friend. If you want a Youtube type guide I'm sure you can search for one, just make sure it's not a ba-jillion years old. Something for build 78 I'd imagine would work fine. Edit again just in case, but if you do find a b78 Youtube vid be sure when actually putting a server together you get the versions of forge needed for whatever TFC version you are using.
  15. Hello I'm new to the forum.

    Greetings! Welcome to the board. I think Bunsan pretty much covered your questions. For me winter has never really posed a problem but I do so much exploring that first year, so in SSP I end up with so much food. Currently living at z-7800 so the temperature does fall below 0 but not for long, downside the summers are pretty hot so food decay is much faster. This. I think when I was exploring North looking for Douglas Fir it was easily 1200-1500 blocks before I saw a top layer rock change, but East I hit a new rock in 200 or less.
  16. Yes! They are glorious, thanks Kitty.
  17. The disappearing sheep

    Suddenly it makes sense. Yeah when it happened I figured there was a reason for it and had 2 other pigs and their litter so wasn't the end of the world.
  18. My Survival World

    Thank you Anquieta. The basement turned out better than expected, using it as a work area with hide processing and a loom station as well as more storage. The time wasn't to bad since I had a lot of fun planning and building. Already have a (*rough) design for my next house as well as 2 smaller projects planned. Thanks so much Udary, I'm glad to hear I've inspired. You should totally show off screenshots too! (This forum needs more action. lol ) I had actually planned to post interior screenshots as well but 2 things; One I already had to post 3 times and two I've not been able to find reeds. Which means no books which really hurts interior decorating. Edit Dec 20th: I found reeds today.
  19. The disappearing sheep

    In my SSP I had this happen with a pig. I had 1 male 3 females all pregnant, shortly after they popped 1 of the female pigs and her entire litter disappeared. It was weird. I've had other pigs disappear but with them I'd find their bones and hide so they most likely suffocated in a block. More recently 2 female cows vanished without a trace.
  20. [Solved] Cow Familiarization

    It takes a few in game days before you'll see the heart fill a bit, but shortly after that so long as you don't miss a day you'll get the white boarder. Think a total of 5 in-game days before you get the white boarder.
  21. My Survival World

    This is mostly a mish-mash of random pics from my world. (And a few from the creative since I can't actually "complete" the blacksmith in survival yet) Bismuth Mine I seriously lucked out, this is normal (right side 25 units) and rich (left side 35 units). Iron and Zinc Mine The zinc is back by the far pumpkin in the quartzite, behind me is a scary scary ravine. Where the chestnut and pumpkin are is where I dug down too. Farm! I apparently don't have a pic of my copper mine but a lovely night time shot of my farm taken from the roof of the blacksmith. If you are interested in seeing Beach House Construction Creative World Blacksmith Just need some Tin And an actual anvil. lol With Shaders They do say go out with a bang. The inspiration... Sims 3 by Buckley
  22. My Survival World

    Blacksmith Construction Basement Floor is made from shale and the walls are dolomite, staircase hickory. Building will be limestone. Ground Floor The Aspen is taking from the beach house and you can see where the forge will be just as soon as I make a charcoal pit. 2nd Floor Hey, the forge works now! Bushes are blueberry, wish I had more than 5. Yes those are log piles in the windows but glass is a big commitment. I've moved into the ground floor and completely tore down the Aspen beach house. Start Roof Beginning of the roof Roof Progress Roof Done Blacksmith Side Time I actually got to work on the smithing side of the building. Future bloomery More roofing! Naked Building! The bare bones of the building, and yes I finally committed to glass it's light gray if you are wondering. Now with details Makes a world of difference. Yes that's a stone anvil, no I don't have a copper one but I'll probably jump to iron now that the building is done.
  23. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    Keep in mind this conversation is very suggestive (*Fantasy/Monsters/Undead) which means no one is right, no one is wrong. Maybe, it would depending on what is causing it to be animated in the first place. Lets say an unknown magic, so now how much of the animation relies on the bones and their structure? If none, then the skeleton is not going to care and you would have to do 'x' overall damage to take it down. If it's bone structure does partially support the animation then what parts? You say spine but I think this 'pretty bad' damage would be mostly done to the spinal cord (flesh) which a skeleton does not have so not necessarily a crippling injury. I do agree that if the bone structure is some how supporting the animation taking out a knee/leg would seriously slow it down and maybe out right stop it. However within TFC I'm not sure targeted damage like that is possible and it is all very RNG. (Head/Torso/Legs/Feet) which I am fine with, it's more than what vanilla does with combat. (("and I'm pretty sure a high-velocity stone will be able to shatter a skull." I don't want to get to real but I don't think high velocity guarantees the bone will shatter in a big way or cause major damage to other nearby bones.)) Eh' my buddy shouldn't be out there without a mace and if he is he can suffer Bwuhahahahahaha! But for the sake of conversation, hitting a skeleton at range unless you are an expert marksman sounds very difficult. The very nature of the skeletal structure allows for many holes and small narrow targets. Also because of the rules of the game we also know this is happening at night so terrible light levels makes it even worse. If my buddy is out at the forest line he better know how to dodge arrows. If my buddy is nearing the gate I'll hold off any zombies and spiders (Mostly spiders cause holy crap) and he better still know how to dodge arrows. I always hit zombies in the head, cause zombies. This conversation is specific to range attacks verses skeletons so not going to venture outside of that but if you want apply the first part of my conversation to zombies, change bone to body and BAM! We also already know what part for critical damage. Brainzzzzzz
  24. getting railcraft to work with TFC?

    I'm guessing you would most likely need to use Mine Tweaker to adjust all the railcraft recipes to use TFC items. Other than that I have no idea.
  25. Ranged weapons vs. Skeletons

    I'm on the side against this, it doesn't make sense to me. I won't deny the fact that if you manage to shoot (bow/crossbow/sling etc) and hit a skeleton (within a fantasy world) that it may cause damage. But how much damage? At most there will be a hole in the bone with some radiating cracks maybe a fracture and at the least a small nick or chip. Is the skeleton going to care about a hole or some nicks? I'd think no, it's undead. To me it seems like it would require a lot more effort to kill a skeleton at range (ammo needed to cause enough damage) then to run up to it and crush it into tiny bit with a few strikes from a heavy metal mace. Which is exactly what TFC currently does.
