      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: 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.

  1. Radioactive ore

    Hello, I have a good idea for TFC2. I would like to see radioactive ore. They have radiation, which give bad effects. They will be used with a special multi-block structures, which in turn produce thermal energy. For example, for more rapid heating of the ingots and heating ores. Or for easier interaction with the same GregTech. And they can generate electricity, such as power railroad or different electrical units. I predict that they will be hard to find. So how will rare and the nuggets will not meet on the surface. And even if they are found first, then they can not be used. Yes, I realize that this industrialization of this beautiful mod, but the more stages of evolution from mod, the better. Thank you for your attention.
  2. Electrical energy!

    Will we get to see electricity in TFC? It would be an end game convenience that would serve for lighting places, irrigating farms with pumps and other things the community and I will definantelly come up with Uses for electricity One thing it will allow us to do is power electrical water pumps that could push water thru irrigation channels so we could build farms anywhere, and not only directly in rivers or ponds. We could hook up the irrigations to barrels and other water containers (even wells maibe?) And not only to water sources. This system could also allow us to have taps in our buildings! Another use would be lighting our areas with light bulbs or lamps. We could make electrical grinders to replace the generic, slow, primitive quern. Automated electrical bellows might become a thing, they would periodically blow depending on the setting you have them on (still have to think and experiment on this one) it was just suggested. Light bulb crafting We could build light bulbs and lamps to light up our places, light bulbs would be made by pouring molten glass into ceramic molds and the bulb's conductive bits would also be made by pouring molten iron into the right mold. We would also need a wolfram (a metal that melts at very high temperatures) as a filament, it would spawn in the ground as ore, as usual, and to make it into a filament you would have to hammer it on an anvil and respect the blueprint. (Maibe we would need a chisel to make it because its SOO small, the hammer would be hard to use?) Of course, you'd do it after making it an ingot and heating it. Wire usage Electricity would not travel thru the humongous, classic modded Minecraft wires, instead we would use copper wire on blocks and simply make them conduct electricity, they would have to touch a generator and the consumer (pump, light, etc) to power the consumer. Uninsulated wire could only be put in wood (cuz its an insulator) and insulated wire would go in anything, AND on top of blocks as a standalone blocock. Making copper / insulated wire Copper wire would be made by, again, pouring copper in the right mold. One mold could make 4 wire out of 1/4 of an ingot, so it would take 25 units of copper to make 4 wire, so out of one ingot you could make 16 wire, which considering wire is tiny, is reasonable IMHO. To insulate it, you would use rubber that you get from the occasional rubber tree patch you'll find by using a tap on its trunk above a bucket, the bucket would very slowly fill over time. One would have to put the raw rubber physicly into an ingot mold and melt the rubber, after, you would put the copper wire into a mold and pour the rubber in said mold with the 4(?) Copper wires to be insulated. Now you can place the insulated wire anywhere. Generators The generator would be made like this if: P - iron plate ; W - copper wire ; T - turbine ; M - magnetite (small) D - iron disc P W W T D M P P P Plates, cilinders, and the disc would be made of 1 iron ingot, 4 turbine blades would be combined with a cillinder to make the turbine. 1 ingot would equal 4 blades. It would need a steam boiler next to it to work, you have to fuel it with either wood or coal and water is also needed to make steam. If: P - iron plates ; B - Brick blocks (any kind) its crafted like this P P B P B B B Water pipes Irrigation pipes can be made of clay, you would simply use the clay forming to make them by making 2 straight lines in it (to not conflict with chisels) and firing it as usual. One pit could hold 4 molds, which would get you 8 clay pipes. These can be placed exactly like insulated wires. Water pumps Again, I'll look it up and come with a recipe I'll continue thinking to come up with more stuff in a bit
