      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.

Nifty tricks

31 posts in this topic

If you often find yourself exploring and get thirsty, but there's no sweet water nearby, you can fill a barrel at home and carry in in your back. You just have to place it down, unseal and start drinking with some jugs.Then when you're getting back home, you can empty the barrel and fill it with things in your inventory for increased storage.

 

EDIT: Also, another trick that I found out is that pit kiln spreads fire to flammable blocks. The pit kiln itself is flammable, then placing many pit kilns diagonally allows you to only lit one. The others will just catch fire saving you some firestarters or the flint and steel durability.

Since log piles are how you make a charcoal pit, and throwing a torch on top is how you light it, dying anywhere near a log pile can be total disaster (such as falling off your house or out of a tree in a tree farm). Kitty has recommended keeping torches in a small vessel for normal walking around since that won't catch any fires if it's dropped on death. Good tip, Kitty, so I thought I'd add it to this thread.

Lol, I totally don't deserve credit for that tip. I heard it somewhere and was just repeating it.

LOL. Fair enough. I just didn't want to take credit for it, either.

What you had was not a fully charged shot... When you first draw back your bow you'll see it pull back to the first stage over the course of about a second (this is animated). If you stand there and continue to hold right click for two seconds it will pop back to stage 2. Another three seconds later it pops back to fully charged mode and the arrow head will be right up against the wood of the bow. That's a full 6 seconds you have to hold right click to get a fully charged shot, which isn't possible to do even once between the time a spider sees you and when it's close enough to hit you. Hence the sniping from a distance.

I know that, and yes, it was a fully charged shot. It was light, so the spider didn't agro until I shot it, which let me get one shot, then I ran away a bit and got another fully charged shot.

Speaking of which, if you have plenty of wood to burn, putting a bunch of log piles somewhere then tossing a torch(or tossing lots of torches I suppose) on top of it can make a nice trap.

Similarly to lighting charcoal pits, I've found that I can light pit kilns with torches. It doesn't seem to work when I only have one pit kiln to burn, but two or more with one space between them all catch fire when I toss one torch each onto them.
