Server Move 09/13/2018I (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.

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.

Okay, I'm not sure how much of this someone without insight into the code will be able to answer, but I figure, asking never hurts I noticed in the TFC config options for configuring the length of the year in Minecraft days, and the length of the Minecraft day in ticks. Especially the latter of the two greatly intrigued me. Why? For no reason other than because no other mod I've played with before has allowed me to toy with this, and I loooove trying out new stuff! So I began to wonder: what is the immediate effect of these settings, which game systems depend on these values, which are unintentionally affected? Like, if I set the length of a day to a tenth of normal, would the sun actually zip across the sky in the span of a single minute instead of 10, or does it only affect how the internal calendar counts the days? In Dunkleosteus' buil 76 preview video he mentioned that he made animal pregnancy time scale with the length of the ingame year. Are there other game systems that scale? Like, for example fruit trees. The fruit respawns constantly during the month(s) it is harvestable. If I increase the length of the year and/or the length of a day, does the fruit keep respawning at the same rate (thereby increasing output per season), or does it scale back so that you get roughly the same amount of fruit per season but spread out over a longer period of RL time? If the days are longer but the year is on default settings, do animals still need the same amount of ingame days (and thus more RL time) to go through pregnancy? How about trees and crops - how do those react to changing one or both of these settings? Will the player consume food and water more slowly if the day is longer (fixed base consumption per day/night cycle) or do you need twice as much food to make it through a day that lasts twice as long (constant base consumption per tick)? If it's the latter, if you sleep through a night twice as long, does that instant-consume a chunk twice as big as normal on waking up too? ...and what happens if I make the day/night cycle so ridiculously long that sleeping through the night requires more food than the entire bar can hold?
