      Server Move   09/13/2018

      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: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. 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.

      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      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.

      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord (http://invite.gg/TerraFirmaCraft) 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. Old high tier steel and meteoric iron

    Before you get your twist in a twist, and start typing on the keyboard... "Hey that's already been suggested. maybe you should search the thing first." (this applies to other players not the mods and admins of this site, just to let you knowyou guys and gals are doing a wonderful job...) Anyways! back on topic, Id like to start by saying I support the idea of meteoric iron. I have distaste in blue and red steel, and I'm well aware this game is shooting for believably, not realism... (took me awhile to wrap my head around since I'm just dumb..." BUT, after I thought and pondered about the old steel types. Which I'm almost sure the Devsare going to change since TFC2 says " a whole new rewrite of the mod." Sowhat to consider changing the oldmetals to. What would be the most plausible option for the highest tier tool, and better help, I have a LOT of experience in metal working, and materials science (metals) well not official but more of recreational. Im just going too put this out but meteoric iron seems like the best substitute for the old blue, black, and red steel. Why? well honestly seems more believable too me. -stays in within time line -Its amine ablemineral / native metal -plus there is multiple types of them "ores"/meteorites(alloy comp) -space metal hasuniquecharacteristicssuch as atomiccrystallinestructures that are hard to replicate on Earth. But then I realize this problem and why I think dunk said no to this. How could this apply to metallurgy? Since the basis is to mix and alloy metals together it would seem worthless to just have a whole new separate metal on its own. but isn't that what iron and steel is? Well, the metal ages go copper, Bronze, Iron, Steel, and I know you guys probably want all mixing of the metals, but I think the better idea would be to have just Copper/Bronze(maybe bismuth bronze/Iron/Steel/Meteoric Iron, and this can apply to tools. NOW I'm not saying mixing the metals is bad and needs to go, I'm saying that just because you have gold, silver and bismuth does not me you should add it in a big pot and get a super metal. To me? not believable, BUT to have certain metals such as stated in order above^ is believable. And the metallurgy idea could be different instead of a giant mixing pot of metal. not so sound mean D: Also I'm not saying trash all the rest ex. gold, brass, silver, platinum. But to re-purposethanfor something more practical from that era so it stays in format with the game/mod. Now I'm aware the mod has black bronze, and bismuth bronze is there as a substitute. but this is just a personnel opinion. Keep bismuth bronze, kick black bronze, but that probably wont happen. just wanted to say it The metal melting process and mixing alloys in a whole beast itself and I have no clue if the Devs are keeping the old system or a awesome new one. fingers crossed* So inconclusion,I think the best option for a last tier metal would be meteoric iron, as in itself is practically just space stainless or kovar metal. I read what other people thought and it seemed positivebut I don't know if anyone would think differently on my point of view. I'm not all sure how it would all work since that's a whole process in itself. And I would just like to say I LOOOVE the idea where I can smelt my metals and mix them, I do this in real life for fun and some income. I really do enjoy it and Id like to see the other metals become more practical in their own aspects. I love this mod and it is truly amazing! I wish I could help more indepthwith metals in the game with my extensive knowledge but anywaysThank you Guys! Thanks for reading- Spinach depth
  2. Hello! I have discovered the definition of "smithing". I have spent the last few days gathering and smelting bronze ingots to get to the iron age. How much bronze you ask? Only 128 ingots XD. Honestly that was not horrible to collect. Using an old poor Cassiterite mine and a Rich Native Copper mine, I was able to amass this amount with a bit of work. I went through 1 1/2 bronze picks and several stacks (160 oz.) of bread throughout the crafting. I forgot to take pictures but I will say, there was a ton of ore. I calculated the amount of copper ore collected and I had gathered a little 17,000 units of it, enough for 170 ingots of copper, but why would I do that? I began the process of smelting the ore using 8 pit kilns, each with 2 clay vessels, each filled with 8 ingots worth of copper. I had made around 22 clay molds for making the ingots so the pouring wasn't a problem. Surprisingly, this was the shortest and easiest part of the build only taking around 45 minutes. I stacked up all of the ingots and took a screenshot, I will do my best to upload it directly : . (I hoped that worked). I spent the next 1 hour of that day and another 2 hours today welding and forging all of the ingots into double plates, using 2 stacks (around, I don't know exactly how much) of flux and 4 stone hammers, I made 2 copper hammers in the meantime. I came out with 32 bronze double plates and Adept in general smithing, I crafted the bloomeries and hopped on my donkey, riding towards the next town, Russelsmith. Many set backs accured, manly the almost death of my donkey several times, but eventually I made it to Russelsmith and put down the bloomeries in the foundry. I took a final screen shot: . I spent alot of time on this so tell me what you think, I calculated that I will be able to process 32 Iron at a time. I plan on using all of this iron to create a rail line between the two towns. The top area is a servicing deck so I can load the bloomeries Edit: my donkey died
  3. Brass/Bronze

    I was trying to mix copper and tin to make bronze when I got brass instead. When I checked the wiki the ingredients were the same, how do I get bronze instead?
  4. Hi guys! Im new on the forums bit i have bben playing TFC for a while now. I have a lot of metals. I made all the alloys and i have 150 copper ingots and about 200 gold ingots. I really dont know what to do with them. I hope someone has a solution for that. :D
  5. [Solved] Anvil broken?

    Hello, So since Etho started playing this mod I thought i'd give it a shot aswell, currently i'm at the point of making my first metal armor piece but i'm stuck. I'm trying to make a bronze sheet, I have a bronze anvil, bronze hammer, and bronze double ingots but when I put in the double ingots at the right temp the UI doesn't update. The red arrow just stays at the beginning and nothing happens.I can use the hammer and it gives feedback that the ingots are worked but I'm unable to produce sheets. Is this a bug or am I missing something? Thanks.
  6. Ore Tiers

    I was just wondering if anybody had a more or less complete list of the ore tiers/progression..? After finally getting all tin tools, I know I need to get enough copper to make an anvil.. But what comes after that? What's the next goal?
