      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.

Legit gathering of missing resources

10 posts in this topic

Hey,

I was wondering, if you play legit (no cheats) and you play in a world for quite some time ... and then you are unable to find something (for example needed resource to progress further in tech tree).

How do you solve that?

 

For example: I generate new world and transfer all my stuff into this new world – BUT – my rule is that I can transfer only half of everything... like half of equipment, half of ores, half of ingots, etc...

The hardest to acquire resource is, in my belief, Garnierite; since it only spawns in Gabro. Even Graphite spawns in 4 different rock types so with some effort you will find it.

With that in mind, I actually only generate new worlds if I have the bad luck of a small Islands world. Since ores do not spawn under the ocean it is a waste of map.

I like big continents, travelling by foot is the best way to find all the resources I need to progress in the tech tree.

The only valid option i see here is travelling
My friends and I spend whole late-spring upto early autumn exploring
Last weekend we even ended up naming our map

it really would have been cool, but personally I don't know any of the kind
I just have a project in photoshop with 2 layers: top layer with names and the bottom layer with the map
Whenever we explore some more terrain, i just replace the old map with a new one and all the names remain in their places

sounds good, did you manage somehow to export resulting image to the mod itself, replacing map's data?

Journey Map mod lets you export the final image of the Whole map into a png file saved in your screenshots folder

I think he was talking about importing back the image with the names into the map mod. Since the map is actually composed of generated images I do not see how it can be done.

We do have the alternative of using Journey map with the Waypoints. All one has to do is to share the waypoints.

Oh that's what he meant
Didn't quite get that the first time I read it
Sorry, english is not my first language

Anyway, no, I do not import it back at all
The reason being that whenever I visit a chunk that has to have the name I painted over in Photoshop will get refreshed and replaced with a newer version of it thus removing every name i've written

I rarely get problems with garnierite since I usually dont settle down till I find Gabro. I dont necesarly settle there but I know where it is.

Sure, not every time it is possible this way since I have to get supplies for winter. If this happens I settle down and progress to steel age as normal. After that I find a donkey and make mobile base out of him.

I pack a lot of supplies onto him and me (e.g. 4 stacks of planks, stack of coal, everything needed for a basic forge, saplings as emergency wood .....), but not everything can fit into barrels, vessels and onto my donkey so the large stuff is in my inventory (e.g. stack of steel ingots, cruicible. bellows......). The main problem that remains is food decay. I go around it by taking slow decaying food which is pickled, salted and smoked. When I run out I gather wild crops on the way if its summer, in winter I hunt  for meat.

This way I explore everything accesible by land. If I still dont find Gabro (never happend to me) Im thinking I would put my donkey on a leash and pull it behind my boat.
