Server Move 09/13/18I (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.

This is my first topic suggestion, so please bear with me if I am repeating anything that has already been suggested. I found a few posts with parts of the idea in it, but none with the whole idea, so I thought I'd suggest it. I was thinking that it would be very interesting if tide pools were added to terra firma craft. This idea is piggybacking off of the idea of Ocean Tides, as was suggested by Teragen, in which the suggests that the tide would rise and fall on beaches. My idea is that on beaches, little tide pools would generate, which would be one block deep and take up anywhere from one to four blocks of the beach. They would be most common on rocky or gravelly beaches, and would spawn stones on the bottom of some blocks in the pool. I am not sure if it is possible or feasible to add a right click option on stones, but my idea is that you could right click on an underwater rock in a tide pool, and you would have a chance of getting some type of creature. So for example, maybe you would have a 20% chance of getting a crab, 25% a sea star, 5% a lobster, and 50% chance of getting nothing at all. The stones would stay where they were, but would yield only one animal and then would no longer yield any sort of animal until it was refueled. Stones would be refueled when the tide came in and then back out again, which would reset the probability of find anything under each rock. The animals would be easier to harvest than most other types of meat, and so would be an easy way in the early game to keep your protein level up. However, they would yield very little meat, so they do have their disadvantages. Lobsters would give the most hunger points when eaten/and or yield the most meat, crabs slightly less, and sea stars would yield little or no meat and would be there mainly to fill up your inventory and add variety to the world (and maybe could be used as a decorative item or something). Sea star could also just be removed, they are not very important, I just thought they'd add variety. Lobster traps could also serve to make catching lobsters and crabs easier, although I won't go to into depth with that, because it has been suggested multiple times before. Finally, this stone "flipping"/right clicking mechanic could also be used in fresh water or even on land, giving you things like crayfish, snails, insects, etc. Thank you for reading through this long post, and please help make suggestions and criticisms that might improve it, and give your opinions for whether or not you want to add this or anything like it.
