      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 ( 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.

[Vanilla] Ghost support beams

3 posts in this topic

Version #: .79.13

SSP/SMP (Single/MultiPlayer): SSP

Suggested Name: Ghost support beam

Suggested Category: Annoying



When standing under a block which is 6 blocks or higher above the floor, and placing a vertical support beam on the ceiling will create a ghost beam.

  • The materials to make the beam wont be used but the blocks are solid
  • The top beam block wont be placed .
  • Breaking the beam will only break one block and the block above doesn't render.
  • Relogging will remove the beam.

Have you deleted your config files and are still able to reproduce this bug?: Yes

Do you have any mods other than Forge and TFC installed?: Yes

If yes, which mods?

This is a side effect of the vanilla reach bug. I can't find the link for it in their tracker right now, but basically it's the bug where you try to place any block that is just out of reach, and it places for a split second before deleting itself and going back into your inventory. If you've ever caught yourself jumping to place blocks on the ceiling even though it looks like you can target the ceiling by just standing, that's the bug.


There really is nothing that TFC can do to fix this, since it is caused by vanilla. If you are experiencing this, then you need to get closer to the ceiling because you aren't actually close enough to place anything, support beam or not.
