      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: 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. Build 77 Starting Shelters

    I love this new build! I'm wondering what kinds of shelters you're building on your first night with build 77. Do you have any favorite designs that you've come up with? If you have any that you'd like to share, please put them in a "spoiler" so as not to ruin the new surprises for other members. Here's my favorite so far: My first TFC night was rough. I had the cutest little child zombie attacking me. It was cute until mommy and daddy showed up... and the entire extended family! There was a massive hoard of zombies. My shelter held firm until a spider slipped through my 1x1 window and I found myself hopelessly outmatched. A mad dash out my shelter and past the hoard wasn't enough. Apparently javelin skeletons have this neat trick where they light you on fire... Lesson learned. Mobs are to be avoided at all costs whilst in the stone age. I prefer cheap starting shelters that use the footprint of a charcoal pit. The idea being that once I craft a saw, I can build a real shelter and torch my starting shelter for some charcoal. The new spiders present a challenge because I don't want to be holed up in a shelter all night without any windows and just wondering whether it's safe to come out or not. I want to see outside. To build this shelter you need 1 dirt block, 16 thatch blocks, and 2 stacks of logs. If you can't manage to collect a second stack of logs in time you can make do if you have at least 4 logs of a different type. Place the first 8 logs around the dirt block. To place one log on top of another, you'll first need to either fill the bottom log pile block with 16 logs or place a different type of log in each of the 4 slots. Once you've placed the second block, remove the excess logs at the bottom and repeat with the next block until you've completed the second layer. Finally you can finish your tower/shelter with an offset thatch "lip" around the perimeter to keep those pesky 1x1 spiders at bay. I feel safe in my tower. I usually spend my nights in the center block cooking meat, making torches, knapping tools, or getting pottery ready for my pit kiln in the morning. Once the distant monsters have burned, I walk off the tower's ledge and draw any mobs under the lip out into the sun where they can burn. When the sunsets, I go up the tower through the front two blocks that I then replace (Tip: A single thatch block is faster). I fill the log piles with wood as I progress. I store water and food in one corner, ores in another corner, etc. This simple tower is serving me well so far but I'm really looking forward to my first saw.
  2. What types of shelters have you built? I can't find ideas for a home anywhere, so I figured I'd ask you guys. You can use this format to share your builds: [b]Title:[/b][b]Description:[/b][b]Screenshot(s):[/b][b]Blocks used:[/b][b]Difficulty (1-10):[/b]
