      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.

Ore blocks are weird... really weird.

Okay so I'm sitting here wondering what you guys did to make your ore blocks. Because they seem to be blocks yet not at the same time. I just wanted some clarification on what exactly is happening there. And if there is a way for other mods to detect the blocks. Ie: nei

They are TEs, but that isn't reason. The way they are coded the blocks don't have itemblocks, as in the item you have in inventory. What this means is if you cheat in a ore block you will always get a "block" that is meta value 0. So for ore it is copper and for ore2 it is kaolinite I believe. When you place you get transparent block with ore overlay. There is no way to change this, byte code is used to change their quality. They do have an item for ore, ore2 and ore3 in NEI. However these cheated in blocks apparently can corrupt saves, so they are not coded to be in creative tabs and are hidden in NEI. You can set NEI hiding to false in TFCConfig to see them.
