      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. Creating a TFC server

    Anarchy doesn't work well for TFC. There have been a few of those kind of servers in the past and they all died quickly. People don't enjoy having to grid hours on end to progress in TFC, only to have some griefer come along and wreck it in a few minutes. I gave you my recommendation. If you want to try with less than 4GB, do some testing and see what works for you.
  2. Creating a TFC server

    It's going to cost a lot of time to set things up correctly. If you don't then you will spend even more time maintaining your server. What I mean by this is that if you don't have something that allows players to claim land and protect their stuff you will be doing a lot of police work. TFC doesn't play nice with other mods or plugins so figuring this stuff out takes a lot of trial and error. We run TFC on KCauldron and spent a lot of time tweaking Bukkit plugins and a few server mods to produce a fairly maintenance free server. Most stuff is protected and the stuff we know can go wrong is easily fixed. That's the hard part. Cost-wise it all depends on where you host it and how large the server needs to be. Just renting a Minecraft instance is cheaper than renting a complete server where you have total control. In my opinion you should run a TFC server with no less than 4GB of RAM allocated to Minecraft. That should be enough for about 10 players with fleshed out towns, farms and machinery. On our server we maintain strict limits to how much each town is allowed to build: fruit trees, berries, farm land blocks, TFC machines, etc. Reason being that we want to keep the server lag free for up to 20 players. Renting a 4GB server instance will cost about 20 to 40 euro/month depending on where you host it. Cheaper hosts tend to put more servers on one physical machine thus reducing performance. But you might be able to get away with that given that there aren't a lot of people who actively play TFC anymore. And you can always start small and upgrade later if your server becomes popular. You will need a server host where you are allowed to install mods. And if you want to host a public, non-whitelisted server I highly recommend using KCauldron which is something that the server host needs to support. Otherwise go with a whitelist option and keep a close eye on the players.
  3. I really enjoy how you keep admitting that you griefed and then justifying that to yourself with a lame excuse: they other guy did it too. As if that somehow makes you any less of a griefer.
  4. They did thing to you, so you did thing to them. That pretty much sums it up doesn't it? Yeah, we don't want people like that on our server. Fortunately that doesn't matter to you since you had no intention of playing on our server anyway. So who cares? Moving on.
  5. *edit* Thanks for the link. He's send me two PMs. From what I can tell he tends to blame others for his actions. He's not welcome on our servers.
  6. If the appeal fails, please post his IGN and UUID so we can ban him as well. Griefers should not be allowed on TFC servers where people often spend hundreds of hours building.
  7. TFC1 1.12+ port

    Awesome! Congrats on the promotion and the promising start of this project
  8. [0.79.29.922] Forests of Terra

    That sounds awesome. Good luck with your new server
  9. GreyWardenAnders also mentioned issues with Dynmap. He didn't say what issues exactly though. Perhaps if you posted what's wrong people could help? Unless you already know and/or have everything under control. Or simply want to figure it out for yourselves.
  10. Together We Thrive Server (New/Old)

    This servers seems to have been down since april 20th according to minecraftforum.net. Also the IP listed in the forum thread there (which is different from the server page) seems to be offline. Is everything alright? *edit* Never mind. The new IP seems to be up. Glad to see you guys are still going strong
  11. Spawn Protection Radius

    That's just how TFC works Alternatively you could switch the difficulty to peaceful when you're at your base and back again when you move out. Or you could use mods that let you claim land like FTB Utilities or play on a server that has Towny and protection build right in so you don't have to modify your client at all.
  12. If you have had no issues doing things this way, then that's great and you should just continue doing things the way you prefer doing them. It's just that in my experience a lot of people just don't like to register without knowing what they are registering for. Those people usually also won't tell you about it. As for our Enjin page. We don't have an Enjin page as far as I know. We have our own domain and host our own website on our own hardware. But if you do know about an Enjin page that talks about our server, I'd really like to know about it. Perhaps it's a fan-made page?
  13. TFC1 1.12+ port

    Good luck with your exams!
  14. In the opening post you invite people to check out your website. Almost everything on your site requires an account. This is just my opinion. But that seems like a way to pretty much guarantee very few people will ever read the information you're posting.
