      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.

Well, thats you wish

I use plating, because you can easily smelt them back to ingots

Also i have a "Vault" in my base. I store about 7 full ingot piles of gold there just for fun

TFC is geared towards multiplayer. That's why the veins and everything are so huge. In a single player world, that may seem like an excessive amount of metal, but on a server it would probably quickly be used up by all the new players needing tools and stuff.

And that is the exact reason why the distance between veins is huge? Looking for veins are a pain without pro-pick and the skill to do it.

I find tripple veins alot and most of the time i mine dbl's, and the pro pick isnt really that hard to master. ore all in all is super easy to come by.

I have a limonite vein, kaolinite vein, and a coal vein in one of the caves I found tht I also have no idea what to do. Tried digging down on the place where I found some tetra, but find nothing. Propick really helps there, but I don't have one D: Tried exploring crazy mountains north from my base and found kaolinite again.

All three of those ores/minerals that you listed only spawn in sedimentary rock. You do know that you have to look in the correct rock type layers in order to find specific ores, right? Obviously you aren't going to find any copper in an area that spawns limonite, kaolinite and coal, because tetra, malachite and native copper don't spawn in sedimentary stone. It is possible that you might find copper deeper down in the second or third layer if those contain a type of stone that spawns copper, but otherwise don't even bother digging there.
