      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.

Are you looking for a TFC challenge?

1 post in this topic

If you're a TFC veteran and you're looking for something new, I've got a challenge that will definately test you. There are only three rules.


Bloomery Challenge


1. On or before your 30th Minecraft day, you must craft a bloomery in hardcore more

2. At all times, you must not place anything outside your inventory for the purpose of storage



Examples of things that would contravene rule #2: placing something outside your inventory for a storage purpose like putting an item on the ground and then putting it back in your inventory later, placing clay/ceramic items on the floor (even empty vessels), placing log piles, using a chest, using a tool rack, using ingot piles, using armour stands, using item frames, etc.


Examples of things that would respect rule #2 but still trigger the timer for rule #3: placing something outside your inventory for a transformative purpose like an unfired clay item to turn it into a ceramic item in a pit kiln, or a log pile to light it on fire, or a vessel filed with ores to smelt it, or an empty barrel to fill it with water, or an anvil so as to smith an item, accidently dropping something (default key = "q") and then picking the dropped item back up, etc.


If you contravene rule 2, the item in question is lost and must be abandoned.


3. At all times, you must not be within 100m of any block upon which you placed anything "Steve-made" 12 or more hours prior (i.e., 10 gameplay minutes)


Examples of things that would respect rule #2: placing anything unmodified like dirt blocks, raw stone, etc.


Examples of things that would contravene rule #2: placing anything manufactured in the crafting grid (e.g. thatch) or otherwise made (e.g., firepit, torch, wood supports, etc.)


If you contravene rule 3, the game is over.



I don't play as much TFC as I used to but I really enjoy this challenge and maybe you will too. I find the caveman to bloomery stages of TFC to be the most engaging so I'm focusing on that part in the challenge. I love how I must do all this as nomad without the benefit of a safe base.


REI's Minimap and Xnote stopwatch are very helpful. If I'm firing a pit kiln, I place my first clay item, hit "T" to start the timer (you can configure Xnote's hotkeys), place the remaining clay items, place the straw, place and light the logs on fire, hit "C" to create a waypoint, wait for the pit kiln to finish, collect the fired ceramic items, run at least 100m from the waypoint I set earlier, hit "R" when 10 minutes have elapsed to reset the timer. You absolutely can never within 100m of that waypoint - even if it impedes your desired path across the world.


Have fun!
