      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. Has anyone been able to make seeds?

    Can you still get seeds from tall grass?
  2. Nutrition: picking up where meals left off

    It occurs to me that there's already three different kinds of nutrients that crops need, and each crop needs only one. There's three food groups right there. Make meat a fourth, and fruit a fifth. (Or distribute some of the fruits among the others.) Only problem is, fruit trees are quite rare lately. I've yet to see one in my current world. (And yes, I'm in an appropriate latitude.)
  3. More early game uses for straw

    If it doesn't change my spawn, it's of very little use to me. With the sheer distance we have to travel in the early game, there *needs* to be a way to change spawn. Sleeping through the night is gravy. Now, I suppose there's no reason that spawn-changing has to be tied to a bed. Perhaps you craft a 'Home Sweet Home' mat or whatever. But my preference would be a straw bed that changes spawn, but debuffs you in some way when you sleep. Maybe you lose hunger and thirst from tossing and turning all night.
  4. Help finding graphite

    Totally! I use 2x1 shafts and ladders myself. You do have to be a little careful not to fall to your death, though - it's happened to me a couple times.

    Rather than the quern, perhaps the flower dyes could be ground with the mortar and pestle? It would give it some variety of use.
  6. Wood Working/Carpentry Table

    My understanding is that the scribing table is going to be phased out, though I don't know what will take its place. That said, this is an appealing idea. Metal nails might make for more efficient recipes than wooden pegs, too.
  7. Avoiding The Grind

    There's this difference, though... I find branch mining at the diamond level in vanilla to be quite relaxing and non-grindy. There's just the right mix of repetition broken up with discovery. Digging kilometers of tunnel in the hope of finding something just doesn't have the same effect. I heartily endorse the idea of surface-level prospecting, visible stone layers, and so forth.
  8. [TFC 0.78.9] ExtraFirma Addon v1.0.4

    So the two colored blocks that the candles were on were jet and olivine? Is that a blast furnace in the pic, or something else?
  9. strange tree

    Thank you. Huh. I've been living at -9000 or so for a while in a forested area, but I'm yet to see a fruit tree. They used to be downright ubiquitous.
  10. [TFC 0.78.9] ExtraFirma Addon v1.0.4

    Maybe wool cloth should be dyed using a barrel? Anyway, this looks really great! Dunno if you're planning to make more decorative blocks, but malachite would be gorgeous.
  11. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    I see the individual ore and mineral pages have been removed... I got good use out of them, personally. The big chart is a little hard to read. Also, it used to be indicated whether a given ore occurred in veins or clusters. Though I suppose this may change in 78?
  12. Casted Tools and Sharpening

    Not just in antiquity, either. To this day we heat up steel and rapidly quench it to produce stronger microstructures. The greater strength does come with greater brittleness, it's true, but it's generally well worth the tradeoff. (Plus there's tricks to get around that, too.) I'm not positive this works in things other than steel, though. It has to do with the detailed microstructures of iron-carbon alloys - which is a huge subject in itself. Also, I don't think it would be plausible to do this to *repair* a steel item. You'd do it when it was first made, to give it extra durability.
  13. Early metallurgy problems and potential solution

    I don't think one should be able to cast swords at all, so that would solve that problem. Maces make a little more sense to be cast, though. Basically, if you want weapons and armor, make an anvil.
  14. Build 77

    I've actually managed to put things back in, weirdly enough. You have to be very careful to click the correct corner it came from. But yes, there are many oddities around right-clicking around a kiln. The most annoying is that ordinary; right-click behavior is not suppressed; so when you place a clay or ceramic object, and you have rocks or clay in your hand, the knapping/molding interface opens up.
  15. Newbie help!

    Yep! You are. Clay molds are no longer crafted using a crafting table. They are molded from the clay interface, then fired in a pit kiln. Also, you don't need a metal hoe to farm, though they certainly bring a great deal of convenience. A stone hoe will do to cultivate land.
