      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

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
