      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. Ore Generation Overhaul

    Have you read, understood, and followed all of the rules listed in large text at the top of the suggestions forum?(Yes/No):Yes Answering "no" to the above question will result in your post being deleted. What I have thought about implementing in TFC2 is an overhaul in ores and minerals in generation. 1) I think that the generation of ores and minerals at default should be more realistic. Example: 10% of all ores generated should be iron ores, while if possible, bauxite will cover 16% of all ores generated. Furthermore, precious metal ores should be revamped. E.g. There will be as much silver as there is pitchblende while there will be less gold. 2) There could be new minerals e.g. mercury and phosphate to be added in. Phosphate and saltpeter will serve as ingredient for effective fertilizer while mercury can poison you, making you lose 1 heart of health per second for how many seconds you stayed in, translated into the number of minutes.
  2. [Solved] Native Ore spawning

    Hello. I'm new in TerraFirmaCraft and I have a question about Native Copper spawning. It is possiblethat the ore does not appear on the surface within a radius 1000 cubes in each direction? I really dont understand spawning system of Native Copper. It doest not appear because biome type (My is Plains), or it is absolutely random to get Native Ores in any world? By the way, I have change ravineRarity to zero in myTFCOptions.cfg it have effect on Native Ore spawning in total or not?
  3. In 4 separate areas of my world I have found native copper nuggets in surface slate rock. I have also read that thompsonjet2010 found kaolinite in chert. Neither of these should be in these stones. Could someone please explain why this is happening?
  4. Does depth matter?

    I know that rock layer matters for ore generation, but does depth also matter (like in vanilla minecraft)? For example, if I am hoping to find malachite, am I better off running around on the surface looking for limestone rocks, or should I dig down and find a limestone layer deep underground and create a branch mine?
