  1. Ranching: tending to your animals

    Coming from a background of raising animals and seeing a related topic on the tread: Harsher Winter, I noticed how easy it is to raise animals in the game and get stacks and stacks of food at such a low cost (still staying with your balance, Dunk). Overall Animals need enclosures sufficient for the amount of animals with space for breeding, or else the area is overpopulated and disease is a bigger issue than the resources it takes to build the larger enclosure. Disease spreads from animal to animal, even other types of animals, gets to wild animals, and takes over the world (jk). Wild animals carry diseases, gather herbs and make vaccines for your animals after taming. Animals need to be watered and fed every so often. My idea of how that can work is a status bar that appears when hovering over your animals, animals need to be fed like 3 times every Minecraft month because it's a game and feeding them day and night would be a problem on servers. Unless we want our game to be more important than our lives . Chickens I noticed the most problem here. First of all, although they can not fly very well, with the assist of objects around them they can climb around 25-30ft up a wooden wall. Fences would be even easier. Horizontal fencing needs to be added, wooden just because and wire mesh fencing because coops need a outside enclosure because chickens are unsanitary animals. Chickens need coops, indoor and outdoor. Chickens have to eat out of troughs because they poop everywhere and eating where you poop is not a good idea, try it someday and tell me how you feel. Coops must have an outside extension because being stuck inside with all your poop is another very bad idea and everything needs vitamin D. A coop is a multiblock structure up to a certain size (they are fairly cramped by the way, I had like 12 chickens in a 149sqft coop). The multiblock is complete with an enclosed area, inside floor must be any practical block but dirt/grass with a trough and places for hens to lay eggs, with straw placed inside, outside must be grass with water on top or flush with the ground. coops inside Cows/horses/sheep I don't know if you guys took out horses, but the only difference between cows/sheep is that they need shoes. All of these can be together, but they need a large pasture and a barn and stables, tack sheds are handy, but can't be inside the pasture. Stables can be inside the barn, since it's Minecraft nothing needs working doors. Stables are just a roofed partition for one animal with a trough and water, that's good enough for Minecraft. A barn is just for storage and a place to corral your animals, completely open space unless it also occupies stables, only must is a roof and straw. A tack shed is to keep tools and to tie up your animals out front, so no actual need. empty barn barn with stables tack sheds Pigs Being unsanitary animals they need to be alone in a enclosure like cows/horses/sheep, but smaller and only need a roof over their head. Can be fed rotten flesh/meat. Added ideas

    Deathbytac0 Central US I want a server to play on and actually be sociable while playing, singleplayer gets old... I am really just cool like that I like to help though, in any way, just ask I will assist. By the way, what version are you on right now?
  3. Ranching: tending to your animals

    Chickens can fly and can get somewhere with clipped wings, if they get out of the cage either way, it's like playing tag with Usain Bolt. Anyway I said in the coop they needed a place for hens to lay eggs, a platform with straw on it. And poop is great guys... Fun stuff .
  4. I'm back and somethings missing

    Where the hell are all my friends and all the fun we've had. The forums used to be like an awesome colorful butterfly of awesome that just hatched from its cocoon. Now it's fairly inactive and I want to cry. Somebody get Dunk, JAG, Eternal... guys I'm lonely.
  5. How in the world are you supposed to install these mods now!

    Yeah too late, already watched it. Thanks for the update though, I feel so nooby lol.
  6. I decided to try the new version and I ran stable at a whopping 15fps, so good enough. Now that was vanilla on the new launcher. How do you install mods now theres no bin or minecraft.jar. but multimc has all the old stuff I'm used to and I can't import my .minecraft to multimc correctly. I'm confused... do I need to just do it the old fashion way and make like 40 back ups and drop forge in 1.6.2.jar, run, then put TFC in mods? Does anybody use multimc anymore or is it broken? I would like to be lazy and use it. By the way my internet is slow enough that multimc won't work on the internet, is that a problem?
  7. I'm back and somethings missing

    I know KIllster, I know. Do you not remember me, I sure remember you and you haven't changed a bit.
  8. Ranching: tending to your animals

    Exactly, grass is a secondary food. Even though cows live off grass, cows/horses/sheep should eat say 5 blocks of grass in emergency, stop and require "real" food. Therefore making animals live on dry grass hard but possible, especially if heat is a factor in there hunger.

    Nobody wants explosive ingredients easy to find.
  10. I'm back and somethings missing

    Don't worry I know, I was 95% of the cause of it back in the day.
  11. Harsher Winter

    I live on a ranch and know that anything will eat from almost any surface you put the food on. Chickens eat from troughs, you need them to keep the coop tidy(ish). The chickens will kinda pick it up and sling it if they don't just down it in a gulp, so the floor still gets messy, but oh well, the troughs keep the food from being on the nasty floor they poop all over and keeps them from getting diseases and the chickens really don't care where their food goes, they smell it, they'll find it, and they will eat it there. Troughs are a nice idea I like that, you can scatter your grain on the floor, but once you get resources you want a trough to keep the disease on the down low.
  12. I'm back and somethings missing

    That escalated quickly... So, there's a new old squad? I don't know what that seven stuff was about, but do we roll up in threads followed by explosions and stuff and then noodles goes on about symmetry and Killster freaks out. I like it.
  13. Admin Tools?

    I'm not familiar with that, so that may be the only part left out. Lol, I hoped that you weren't looking for server memory usage.
  14. Want to come back - help me find computer parts

    Oh... Thanks, that would have been bad. I was looking at 650Ws, Antec has the next TruePower series coming out soon I think and they look like they'll be fairly cheap and efficient. I may get a IDE-SATA adapter (can you say SLOW) and use my old ROM drive and get one later, there is some stuff I'll need it for right off the bat. So... Motherboards. Asus, Z87...
  15. I have been gone a lot, mostly because of my laptops inability to game. Help me choose computer parts that rock and fit my budget. Budget: $1750 (this is gonna be tough) Motherboard: Asus Z87-K ~$130 CPU: Intel Core i5 4670K ~$250 RAM: Kingston 16GB DDR3-1600 ~$120 GPU: 2x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 SLI ~$500 Sound: onboard HDD1: Intel 335 SSD ~$200 HDD2: WD Caviar Blue (7200rpm, SATA III) ~$75 CD/DVD/Blu-Ray ROM: Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 ~$60 PSU: CPU Cooling: Cooler Master Hyper TX-3 ~$25 And Windows 8 +$100 $1460 We are doing good, now lets see what we can ramp up. I may end up a little high in the end put as long as the main parts don't go too far over we are looking good. I need help getting substantial parts though, all this can be changed. If I need to invest an extra $100 in an i7, so be it, but that i5 is a monster.
  16. I'm back and somethings missing

    =/ Well, I'll try to stay back for a while this time.
  17. Admin Tools?

    F3, NEI, Rei's, X-ray mod, Optifine with debug tools on. Put TFC in debug, run windowed with taskmanager on the side. That should cover almost anything you would need for administration/debugging. Also F3 (at least in 1.4.6) has you memory usage.
  18. [TFC 0.78.9] ExtraFirma Addon v1.0.4

    I would like to give a round of applause for this man.
  19. Harsher Winter

    Not bad, but what are you going to do when spring rolls around and wolves have overpopulated and you have a nearly broken game. These animals don't spawn like vanilla, once they are gone, they are gone. Also hunger decreases fast enough, I don't want to start in a cold climate, take it slow and don't get metal before winter and now I only have the food I got with javelins, bad play on your part, but...
  20. Want to come back - help me find computer parts

    I was going for $1500, but I went a little higher mostly for the 760s SLI. I need a ROM drive, power supply, and maybe revise my parts like my motherboard, if it has features I don't need and there is a lesser one with everything needed for the other hardware. I won't change the GPUs or HDDs and the CPU is probably fine. That would be about all I need help with. Also I can make it last longer than 3 years and still stomp some modern ones, update your hardware every few years and it will run fantastic. You may end up with a whole new setup in a few years, but everything you have on it is the same because it's ported, that's how you play it smart (clutter is somewhat of a problem though).
  21. I'm back and somethings missing

    No joke. Those were fun, maybe a little too fun, but hey.
  22. Harsher Winter

    It still comes in large stacks.
  23. Want to come back - help me find computer parts

    Do you want to see what I can make with $3000? I need a new computer for all sorts of stuff work, games, games more demanding than TFC, plus I'll make it last a long time and then build another in 10-15 years if I want. I set a budget for $1750 I can make it happen, I just need the other parts that will get me more bang for my $1750 or hopefully less.
  24. Shipwright Steve

    You sir, are badass. I look at the title and think oh god, look at the post and think oh god... and think it's a fantastic idea! I wish water could wave and surge so you could have an amazing sailing experience and a really good challenge. I like this a lot better than crappy vanilla boats, being made in a mod the handling could be reworked and I will be a happy seafaring cucumber/llama.
  25. Harsher Winter

    What of a possibility of a harsh winter (7/10 in a moderate climate maybe) and if you are in a warmer climate, nothing more really happens, as goes for the colder climates... good luck. I like Ktrey's idea of falling ice, seeing icicles cover trees and overhangs would look cool too.
