      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. Domestication Through Mendelian Inheritance

    Incredibly detailed suggestion! The ideas almost suggest a game on its own where one can select animals and breed them to obtain certain traits. How do you envisage all of this in the framework that TFC already presents. I think in TFC you can already breed larger animals. Horses inherit features from MC: jump height and speed. All animals needs to be domesticated/ familiarized in TFC which is a time-consuming process. Furthermore, finding just a male and female animal of the same species is already tough in TFC, so you just take what you can get. Adding that list of certain traits to breed in animals requires a LOT of animals. I suggest simplifying your suggestion somewhat. Nonetheless, we need this, and perhaps with plants too which would be far easier to implement Can't ignore Mendel's peas he he
  2. [Rule #4] Additional Fuels for Lanterns

    I think it would be pretty trivial for some people who know how to make TFC addons to code additional lantern fuels or add clay lamps, if we ask them nicely. Kitty is happy the original game remains the way she wants it, and everyone else will be happy we can use more lighting options early to mid-game with the addon. Only then, "new lamps...hopefully appease some of the crybabies" here
  3. Good houses for suggestions

    You know, there is a guides section on the forums including threads like
  4. Brass

    We have a suggestions forum, please elaborate your suggestion there. Welcome to the forums!
  5. [Rule #4] Additional Fuels for Lanterns

    Of course, i can tweak stuff as you suggest but i don't want to render useless a nice item like a lantern by brightening up the game so night becomes day. The decorations mod adds lanterns that are alcohol-based and if i ran a poll, most people would probably prefer this version or this thread would not exist. On the whole, TFC devs do a great job, but sometimes i feel already existing implementations are ignored and another approach is used that doesn't correspond to the community's expectations. I'm not trying to argue, but anyway, on the topic of the lantern that is my 2 cents.
  6. [Rule #4] Additional Fuels for Lanterns

    Lighting is a basic necessity and a nuisance if the game turns dark frequently (because torches extinguish over time in the default game). The idea of a luxury item is nice, but should not be lanterns imo. If I were to play TFC again from scratch, i'll just end up using Jack O Lanterns again, if they are still in the game.

  8. [0.79.?] Fix Shaders for Terrafirmacraft Water

    Can you get the shaders to work without any mods? When you say 'it' does not work, you have to be more specific. For example, to get TFC water shaders, you have to look up the block ID's using the NEI plugin for instance. The ID's posted in this thread may not be the same for you. You have to edit thegbuffers_water.vsh file on line 48 starting withif (mc_Entity.x == 8 || ...
  9. I need your help please.

  10. Snow Golem

    I would be sad to see the snow block removed.
  11. [Poll] Ceramic Bowls

    Not since the potion effects were removed from salads... i miss haste and double jump...
  12. why useless ore generation?

    There used to be even more useless ores in the game. I thought they were placeholders for later use but now i don't know. Think of them as flowers to decorate the world, no practical use.
  13. Awesome news! Two cool mindcrackers are at it again Bdouble00's 1st video GenerikB's 1st video
  14. Awww sucks. The series is over because GenerikB stopped playing minecraft and BDouble0 found working the anvil too complicated and boring. I think TFC needs some major overhaul to become more entertaining by reducing the grind. But i suppose that is impossible since TFC at its heart is a grindfest
  15. [TFC 0.79.27] Technofirma Mod Pack

    I'm impressed how far this modpack has come. Really nice! I only had a glance but it seems breaking a leaf block two blocks away from the tree trunk, breaks many leaf blocks by hand in one go. Is this intended?
  16. [Won't Fix] Ocean biomes are too big

    Cool map. Are the flat areas the oceans? The mountains are clearly visible as peaks. I still regret there are no continuous highland regions though.
  17. Wow, great add on! Pity to hear it is 'wasteful'. A trade off for automation?
  18. That's not really what i mean. Did you try the mod in vanilla MC? The curved terrain and wormhole tunnels in the mountains look appealing but behind the morphed terrain, there still exists the blocky nature of minecraft. Therefore, it's tedious and confusing to mine. For example, you see some ore, but when you think you mine it, you are actually mining the adjacent blocks.
  19. Cannot be done. Anyway, i did not find this mod playable at all. Impossible to mine as the terrain gets morphed all the time.
  20. Enviromine displays body temperature, not ambient temperature. Does the mod even look at the ambient temperature TFC reports in the F3 console? If you're at the equator, would you die of heat stroke? Without the camelbak for hydration, i see some problems with enviromine+TFC...
  21. There are more survival simulators than ever before. Stranded deep is the latest to name one. But TFC should be more than that and i'm glad it is.
  22. My new journey [beginner]

    If there is nothing around you in a radius of 2000 blocks, the best way to find new geological biomes is to travel by boat over an ocean (since you can travel day and night). Sometimes you must travel for over 5000 blocks to find something new. If you happen to find basalt, you are in luck. This is the most useful, ore-rich rock in the game. I had to travel a really long distance to find kaolinite. It was so frustrating i added the enhanced portals mod and spawned in the building blocks. When i finally did find the rock type with kaolinite, i build a portal that would transport me back home instantaneously (the one at home was already pre-built). After that, i would always use to portal to go back to and from the far lands.
  23. Seems too easy to say, please make TFC more difficult without going into any detail what makes a game more difficult. Many people, in fact, want TFC to be less unforgiving (especially at the start)! Vanilla minecraft does not really want to be a hard game since it's more about creative building. Mods like TFC can make the game harder to survive, but cannot change to core of the game, which is for the most part based on minecraft mechanics. Typically, a player finds a game more difficult when staying alive becomes a challenge. Alternatively, one can make a game seem harder when the player needs to grind a lot to achieve a particular objective. I don't like the latter as it is tedious and repetitive. TFC combines both. Some means to make the game harder include: -More hostile, tougher mobs dealing more damage -Slowed progression towards better armour -Slowed progression towards better weapons -Rarity of animals/crops/food to increase risk of starvation -(new) Temperature and hydration effects All of these lead to more frequent deaths, except the penalty of death is quite forgettable. Nonetheless. apart from the first entry, i think TFC has done well to turn minecraft into a better survival game and no other mods do it better. Enviromine mod is perhaps the most popular one because it enhances minecraft survival. However, it is flawed and limited in the way it doesn't really strife to be believable, rather it wants to be compatible with all the machine mods out there. Only TFC has substantially modified the survival mechanics and become more independent from the base game (e.g. mobs and player have much more hit points to allow for more flexibility in progression towards better armour and weapons). But as in any game, once the player is proficient enough, the game is no longer difficult. To make the game harder still, you could strife for a harder start (e.g. spawn on an island with limited resources), but this is not really the answer. In the end, you should probably look elsewhere for harder games to play
  24. Melting Tool Heads

    You can recycle an old anvil to recover a lot of metal. That's enough.
  25. Stuck ground

    I'm only suggesting a workaround for your suggestion because it will never be implemented as standard. You can change stack size for yourself. If you play on a multiplayer server, then just roleplay you cannot carry more.
