      Server Move   09/13/2018

      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.

      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 (http://invite.gg/TerraFirmaCraft) 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.

Cannot see the texture of the ore vein. [SOLVED]

6 posts in this topic

So I have finally managed to find an ore vein in my world, I cannot see it even thou I know its there. I am mining for sphalerite; as I destroy a plain stone I receive an ore (thats how I know it, I also know that they are grouped). Is this normal, have I missed some important update to the game? Please tell me, thank you.

Are you using any texture packs or programs like Optifine?

If you could post a screenshot it would be very helpful.

Actually it sounds like you're seeing it just fine, but don't realize what you're looking at =)

TFC ores don't appear as a separate block type like they do in Vanilla. Instead, you'll see the same base rock that you've been mining in, with additional coloration to indicate the presence of the ore. So when you're mining Basalt (black) and bump into a copper vein (orange) it really stands out. Same for Cassiterite (green).

But when you're mining in a while/silver/grey colored base stone and run into Sphalerite (light silver) it's exceptionally easy to miss the change, especially if you're conservative with torches. I've mined right past white-white veins before.

When you're not sure, test with your proPick. If it's ore, you'll get a response that names the ore. Not a deposit size or anything, just "Sphalerite". Another test is using your pickaxe. Regular stone breaks slowly and you'll see it chip apart over 7-12 strikes. Ore doesn't have the breaking animation, but still takes 7-12 strikes... no chips basically.

i you want to see the ore, use a texture pack cause it can be tricky to see with the basic textures

Oh, thanks guys I have figured it out. I seem like there was a texture problem. I was using the default texture and for one it could have been that the texture of Sphalerite was too similar to the texture of Gneiss rock or the I have been missing the texture. Anyway I have fixed it with a different texture pack.
