      Server Move   09/13/18

      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.

  1. 1 Revenge519 2 California PST 3 Both 4 about 15 rich ore, and some excess 5 I've played it for about 2 years. I know most of the fundamentals 6 No I do not 7: I'm a home metal worker which TFC inspired me to do, I'm 19 and a sophomore in college getting a machinist cert. I play guitar and I like to play TFC with other people because by yourself blows... But I love to make new online memories and adventures, I had two great ones in the past but I'm thirsty for a third... ( that sounded creepy)
  2. IGN: Revenge519 Age: 18 Why this server?: I prefer playing with more mature ages. 2 sentence description of yourself/interests: I'm a blacksmith/metal worker, and I'm attending a community college for a certificate in machining.
  3. What is your IGN? Revenge519 Do you like apples? yes What do you like to do in Terrafirmacraft? Build for people and gather metals How old are you? 18 Where do you live? (For time zones)California Are you mature? yes but I can behumorous Tell me about yourself? (3-5 sentences)I'mgoing to community college,Blacksmith/metal worker. I scrap metal too. Anything else I should know? nope. unless you ask. I'llanswer.
  4. Full Name:Joey Eaton Time-Zone:Pacific Standard time Skype: yes or no?yes but I don't have it active Ingame Name: Revenge519 Age: 18 Experience with Minecraft: I've been playing for about 4 1/2, 5 years around there. Experience with TFC: I started playing the mod a little after is started coming out. I'm very familiar with the mod. Why you wish to join:I really enjoy servers like this, They are hard to find now.
  5. IGN: Revenge519 Age: 18 Why us? : Single player is boring and I like to play with other people.
  6. Please note that this is a rough idea. Its not very refined after the first topic, I kind of just ranted on after than Casted vs. Forged As a real blacksmith I have yet to forge my own tools in real life, but I do know that metal casted is just a crystalline structure of no direction. But shaped into a tool shape with a hammer causes the the crystals to be shaped into a direction making the tool or objects structural integrity stronger. when you cast metal into a sand or ceramic mold you get imperfections and and weak spots not to mention the crystalline structure. What I'm getting at is would it be more believable to have forged tool head last longer and preform at a higher level rather than a casted tool head. But since you cant cast steel tools, this only applies to bronze tier metals. I'm not sure if this is already implemented but I think it would make forging more prominent in early ages. Sand Casting Hey your probably thinking that " that would get a rid of the point of casting." Well, here is when it gets fun. Sand casting is much like the casting in TFC but with sand not ceramic, the sand is a mixture of water, clay power and well sand. To cast metal you need to molding boxes any size will do. and to sheets of wood or metal. Its hard to explain this process with out pictures so ill revert you to a link to a metal caster I know, he explains it well http://foundry101.com/new_page_7.htm Things you can make with sand casting: Pipe fittings and valves ( yes look in creative there's pipes its under the devices tab), Large ingots to store metal in larger volumes, and finally solid metal blocks. Yeah yeah, sounds dumb, but remember you can make molding boxes any size? haha yes please. but this runs into a problem about crucibles. Since some of us are are hoarders of metal (Me) metal blocks and large ingots would be fantastic. Crucibles Crucibles are picked up with a lifting shank or tongs and are tipped to pour the molten metal. You can scoop up the metal with a ceramic mold but its highly likely it going to shatter due to thermal shock. Ceramic isn't meant to hold hot metal but clay graphite is. As of now I'm not sure what the Devs have in plan for the crucible but then again they might be done with it I don't know. Crucibles come in different shapes and types and sizes. but in TFC the crucible is the size of half a minecraft avatar. which is real. but crucibles can be the size of a duck too. Like mine. they are good for small castings. larger ones are good for multiple castings and large ones ( like the blocks and larger ingots.) larger ones would require larger shanks and tongs and possibly two people to tip it safely. The crucible and how it operates in TFC is reasonable till you get to iron or copper. Coal can heat up a 1x1x1 meter cup of Iron. Tin, Bismuth, Lead, and Zinc you can due to their low melting temp. A small kiln would better heat up copper, brass, bronze or gold. to a sustainable temperature. Iron nickel and higher metal tiers would be hard to melt and sustain to pour. so that's when I'm not sure how to make a furnace or kiln to a large enough scale. maybe a large hole filled with coal and a crucible in the center. that might work. I might add to this or another post of how everything could work via game play but for now here is just some raw ideas. Thanks for reading my rant. haha
  7. I have a furnace in real life and ive melted steel before, and my furnace has thin sheet galvanized steel around it to keep the ceramic fiber in place, I see this the same way with the bronze bloomery. The bronze sheets would act as a support they wouldn't melt. But if its a bronze box made out of sheet metal, and your melting steel, nickel, and platinum? yeah that's unbelievable on my part, more of the ridiculous end actually. I do see that its a issue of progression in game. but its not believable to melt Iron in a bronze box. but I don't know. that's the devs choice.
  8. Username: Revenge519 Age:18 Location:California Why do you like to play TFC?: BecauseI'ma real lifemetallurgistand I like metal.... a lot, I have almost all the metal in TFC plus the difficulty ofsurvivaland team work. Why do you want to join? I like to play along with other people. What will you add to the server? Building skills and coopaeration
  9. Casted Tools and Sharpening

    already said it.... sooo yeah enjoy ....http://terrafirmacraft.com/f/topic/4320-grinding-wheelgrindstone/?hl=grindstone and dunk said no by the way not to burst your bubble or anything. Dunk: "I did a looong post a while back outlining an idea I had for just such a feature. Bioxx and i discussed it, and in the end, we decided it wouldn't work or fit well into the mod."
  10. making glass by sticking fragments onto molten leadisn'tverybelievableto me.... :/but Idon'tknow. I know nothing of glass blowing..
  11. Changing Stone Generation.

    Ill say haha bismuth is pretty rare and I see it all over, nickel should be more common than bismuth, well that's how it works in real life hahaha.
  12. The "Why Can't I...?" Thread

    Why cant I recycle a broken metal tool? Metal is recoverable but I know that sounds waay OP but check out my post it solves that... http://terrafirmacraft.com/f/topic/4940-metal-recycling-and-oxide-bi-products/
  13. Im disappointed that this topic didn't get attention...
  14. Need some buddies.

    Im 17 and from California I cant host my internet sucks very bad, but I will be moving soon to an area with better web service.
