      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.

"Chiseled" Logs

5 posts in this topic

When you place a log, you get a square "trunk" which takes an act of Congress to relocate. Add a "chiseling" mode to axes and/or saws to convert these blocks into rounded logs. Once chiseled, allow them to be quickly "chopped" back into inventory, greatly increasing desire to use logs as a building material.

Alternate chiseled log section depicting 4 stacked logs, either as a second chisel action or a separate chisel mode. You could ad a slab function to the axe/saw to remove columns/rows, or individual logs for a stairstep effect, or single log border as an aesthetic delineator.

I like this idea a lot, but what's to prevent people from just going out and turning all naturally generates trees into 'logs' to get them faster?

That had crossed my mind. Perhaps removing a chiseled log from a tree will not propagate. This would leave you with a floating section of tree, but such things exist in TFC. You could also look at prohibitive durability hits.
