      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.

How do i gather drinking water?

11 posts in this topic

I know this may seem obvious to you, but i have been having a bit of trouble when trying to gather water to the point where i have to spawn it in just to survive, I've tried everything by standing in water, right clicking with a jug, but my question is, Does water types have a effect on drinking water?

Salt water is not drinkable, won't restore thirst, and can't be put in a jug.

You want fresh water -- which often has cattails growing in it to distinguish it from salt-water

(Note that some costal pools may have both salt and fresh water blocks in the same body of water)

Once you do find a fresh water source, you can also make a barrel and fill the barrel up with the fresh water then break it and transport it to your home. Once it's down at your house you can set it to Out and refill your jug without having to travel to the fresh water for a while.

So...how do you drink before you get the water jug? The website says just to right click but that's not working for me. Yes, it's fresh water...so much fresh water but I can't figure out how to transport it from the pool to my mouth without using a water jug. Was this changed in a recent patch that hasn't been changed on the wiki?

Are you right clicking on the face of a block that is exposed to the fresh water? Right clicking on the surface of the water isn't going to do anything because your cursor isn't actually targeting or selecting anything.

Hmm...I'm pretty sure I was doing that (I remember even looking straight down at one point trying to get it to work) but it seems to work now...either way I call that a problem solved. Thanks, Kitty.

The drinking "by hand" is sometimes buggy. I've seen people mention it in a few places, and have experienced it myself. Restarting the game should clear it up (as far as I recall, just reloading the save does not suffice).

I've never seen this problem drinking, but have experienced what Kitty said. Just move the cursor around while keeping the right mouse button pressed, eventually you'll get a slurp. Keep slurping...

Also, I haven't seen anyone mention this in this thread yet: You need to be using an empty hand.  You can't drink with anything in your hand.

I've experienced this issue many times and it's quite frustrating. When it happens, you can't drink without a jug no matter what. It's not user error. It usually fixes itself eventually, but sometimes persists for a long time. Reloading or re-generating the world sometimes helps. I've not been able to determine any cause, commonality, or way to reproduce it. Once it starts working it stays working as far as I can tell.

 

This can definitely confuse new players who may not realize it's not working correctly. If it can't be found and fixed then maybe a note about it on the wiki would suffice?

What mods do you all have installed, including version numbers version of forge? It looks like you are using zan's minimap, which requires liteloader. It's entirely possible that liteloader is causing the inability to drink as well. In case you didn't know, the damage that your player was taking is heat stroke, because your thirst bar was empty and the ambient temperature is higher than 30C.

 

Also, your bowls were put in storage slots the food prep surface when you made it.
