      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 ( 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. What are your plans regarding server hosting? A decent TFC server that can hold 20 players at the same time will cost upward of $50/month. That seems like a lot of money that I think would be better spend if it's going towards the devs (food/drink/amusement) and development (tools/website hosting/etc).


    Would you perhaps consider a community hosted server instead? I'm not saying it has to be one of ours. Just voicing an idea here.

    As you may know having a server is just a small piece of the puzzle. If a lot of Patreons join the server it will also need staff to keep things running smoothly. This is, I think, not something the TFC devs should be doing. Unless you want to divide your time of course.


    Server maintenance can be a full time job. Especially if people are paying for the server, which they are essentially doing when they are Patreons. They will expect support and special treatment. That means banning is simply out of the question (Yes, you can ban people. But you will lose the Patreons in the process). How are you planning on preventing grief/theft/etc? Or is it going to be an anarchy/free for all server? Just having a town/plot management mod or plugin isn't enough.


    We (HappyDiggers) are willing to discuss hosting a Patreon server (free of charge of course) if you are interested.


  2. Thanks for the update :)

    You mentioned getting SMP working proper. Could you elaborate a little on what this entails? Does this mean solving bugs, optimizing performance, tweaking game-play?

    Speaking of performance. Do you perhaps have any numbers on how the 79 build compares to the current build in regards to heavily populated servers?
