      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.

[TFC 0.79.17] Lanterns Addon for TFC

38 posts in this topic

This addon adds lanterns to TFC (ExtraFirma lanterns were used as a base idea).

 

There are 12 different lanterns which could be made from 1 - 3 tier's metals and alloys.

Lanterns made from 3 tier metal have greater light level, all other characteristics are the same.

Sneak + Right Click with empty hand on lantern - allows to turn on/off light.

Thank you for kind words.> Please tell me they don't go out in the rain.

These are lanterns and not torches or candles - they don't go out in the rain! :)I thought to make so lanterns must be refuiled once per 1 - 2 years, but not think this is good idea - we already have torches with such function, but lanterns is more expensive replacement but with permanent light.I'm planning to make another icons for "lantern shells" - more clear than current.Icons that are using now - are just copy of lantern textures.Btw, what do you think do we need more lanterns that could be made from 0 tier metals and >=4 tier alloys?Or current limitation for 1-3 tiers is better?

 

What do you think could be improved in current lanterns?

The only improvement I can think of is the textures for the shell, and possibly a different name for it. At least for me, I think of a "Lantern Shell" as the outside part, not the "guts" of the lantern. Granted the technical term for it is a "Font" but that might make less sense to everyone lol. Maybe "Lantern Core" instead?

 

The metals are fine, as they still give a large variety and still look "believable". Something like Red/Blue Steel might be too much of an overpowering color. Also having more metals, and having to have an item for every alcohol type on top of that seems a bit overkill (like the new tfc metal trap doors).

 

Aside from that, I can't see anything wrong with the mod. It was exactly what I was looking for, just like ExtraFirma, but without all the other items I didn't care for anyway ;)

Can I include it in our modpack?

Yes, sure - it could be included.It would be nice to have this addon on our server :)
Thank you for detailed feedback.I agree with you - "Lantern Core" will be definitelly better than "Shell".

Also having more metals, and having to have an item for every alcohol type on top of that seems a bit overkill (like the new tfc metal trap doors).

Yes, agree.

Could it be possible to make it so that higher tier lanterns put out light over a wider area and lower tiered ones light up smaller areas? :P

Ohh, thats nice idea, I will implement it.

Copper Lantern will have light level lower than current (current is the same as torch), Platinum and Wrought Iron Lanterns will have max light level.

I am a little torn on the idea of changing the light level. I do like the concept of lanterns putting off different light levels, maybe just having it more powerful than a torch is what I like. Personally myself (and server) have been using the lanterns for aesthetics, some builds look better having a different type of metal (like using certain wood/stone combinations to make it look good). So if I may make a humble suggestion, that if this is implemented, if there could be a config option to disable it and have all lanterns give off the same light level.

 

I do think that the lanterns should put off more light than a standard torch, as they are more time consuming and expensive to build. I just don't think that the metal should effect the light level.

 

This is just my two cents on the topic ;)

This addon. I like it.

 

ANOTHER!

 

On a more serious note, I do like the look of them. Are they only placable on walls, or could you put them on the top of a fence post as well?

They can be placed on top, side, and bottom of blocks (including both vanilla and TFC fences)

 

If you do place them on the side of a fence or wall (like cobblestone/brick walls) there is not a connected texture, so it just "floats" in the air.

All lanterns from 2-tier metal will have the same light level as now (14).Copper lantern will have light level 13Platinum and Wrought Iron will have light level 15. 

So if I may make a humble suggestion, that if this is implemented, if there could be a config option to disable it and have all lanterns give off the same light level.

Yes, looks like config file is needed. 

This is just my two cents on the topic ;)

Thank you for your opinion. 

This addon. I like it.ANOTHER!On a more serious note, I do like the look of them. Are they only placable on walls, or could you put them on the top of a fence post as well?

Thanks.As Red3Tango wrote - lanterns could be put on top or bottom TFC and vanilla fences and walls. 

If you do place them on the side of a fence or wall (like cobblestone/brick walls) there is not a connected texture, so it just "floats" in the air.

This will be fixed in new update so lanterns could be connected to side of fence or wall:post-14675-0-58906900-1416251768_thumb.j

Hi @aleksey_t.

First of all Thank for a great mod/addon.

I currently working on my own add for TFC and have a question for you, is it possible to take a look at your source code for some tips? I'm a noob at modding, but think the best way to learn is to look at examples...

Aleksey,

 

Great work on your addons! We have Lanterns installed on our server and we've built dozens of them. We want to upgrade to 79.17 and also install your Decorations addon when you are able to update it. I believe you said that people with Lanterns already will have the lanterns disabled from Decorations. Does that mean we have to keep Lanterns installed and wait for an update to it? Or can we install Decorations and uninstall Lanterns and still have the already built lanterns continue to function?
