      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: 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.

Different stone types have different hardnesses

2 posts in this topic

I posted a link to this suggestion before in another topic, but i decided to make a separate suggestion to see better what people think.
This is how i would do it. 1 is the relative actual hardness of stones in TFC:
  • Chalk, Rock Salt, Schist: 0.5
  • Limestone, Shale, Conglomerate, Chert: 0.75
  • Claystone, Marble, Phyllite, Slate: 1.0
  • Dolomite, Gneiss, Rhyolite: 1.25
  • Quartzite, Dacite: 1.5
  • Gabbro, Andesite: 1.75
  • Basalt: 2.0
  • Granite: 2.25
  • Diorite:2.5
These multipliers should work for blast resistance of the blocks and for their tool's durabilty, too. We could have different textures for every stone type for tools, or simply a tooltip that indicates what's the tool made of.
I think all this would make gameplay ever more interesting, I did experiment this with customzed Iberia mod and it is really good.
EDIT: i don't know what the heck happened with the fromatting please help

From what I see it would introduce prioritizing of ore viens not only by their distance from your home base, but also by the difficulty of the ore extraction

For instance, I'd prefer to travel 2km south and mine some iron from Rhyolite stone rather than 500m north and  extract it from Gabbo
Not sure if iron actually generates in these stones but you get the idea
