      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.

Hey guys I've never been a terribly active poster on here but I hop in once a month or so to check up on things and I agree I really miss seeing more posts on here, I used to see some of you post frequently and I miss seeing it more often nowadays. I know most of you don't know me but I'd like to possibly get to know some people so maybe it won't feel like it's all gone. If anyone would like to hang out, talk about the good ol days of TFC, play some games on steam or battle.net, or even talk about every day life and how your day went hit me up and contact me. I've got a discord you guys are welcome to hang out in although it I will warn you the them is a little nsfw and corny, but it's where my online and IRL friends all hang out https://discord.gg/czJsJCs (If I'm not supposed to advertise or whatever let me know please I'll fix it)

The only way forward for TFC is standalone. MC has been on the road of Modding community rejection for many years and it's only getting worse. The effort put into a mod written in J*va is roughly comparable to the amount of effort needed to create a standalone. The difference is that a standalone has all the room to grow on the dev's terms, and can actually bring in income. A mod, however, is nothing but sweat and tears; all leading up to being completely steamrolled by Mojang and having a totally dead community to show for. Niche games can last a lifetime, but the reason why niche mods don't is because they're niches of a niche, and the people who are into game modes like TFC don't bother looking into MC to begin with. 

Games like Vintage Story show that there is some sort of demand for a TFC-like game that isn't constrained by an unfriendly platform. But Vintage Story just doesn't display the same spirit as TFC. The name "Vintage Story" alone is a HUGE red flag and the biggest reason why I'm not going to look into it. 

In other words, I don't see a future for TFC inside the MC framework; what the staff should do is pick up the vision of TFC proper, and channel their talent on an independent platform. Just as long as they stay away from things like ingame purchases and dlcs.

Sorry brother I don't mean to be rude, but the name "Vintage Story" to me is very unappealing. The name is suppose to be the face of what's underneath, and it's meant to encapsulate the vision of the creators. I looked into the game a bit, and it looks nice so far. However, the fact that those in charge of it sat down and agreed to name it "Vintage Story" gives me an idea of the staff's vision and the direction it's likely to take. TFC's name has a sort of primordial, almost ominous vibe to it that fits incredibly well with what the mod is about; the name "Vintage Story" is fitting for the type of setting that is fundamentally different than what TFC attempts to portray.

Hm. Thats a good point. As discussed in discord now, we'll think about if we can find better alternatives! (uh oh, another costly eu trademark registration incoming)

After actually playing the game (which is extremely accessible), I have to say that the vision is similar to TFC and I was too quick to judge. The graphics are splendid, and the mechanics are superior to anything that latches onto the MC platform. The creators are obviously onto something here. There are a lot of promising features planned, but even as it stands right now the game is on par with TFC in terms of content; I'd go as far as stating that Vintage Story (pains me to refer to this gem by this name) does many things much better than TFC. The mechanics of metalworking, for example, are vastly superior in VS. 

Other than some minor gripes, I was left very pleasantly surprised by the game. Future relations between TFC staff and VS? One can only dream, but I'm pretty sure that the people behind Vintage Story can pick up the reins on their own. TFC players are much better off migrating at this point.
