      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. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

Hello I'm new to the forum.

4 posts in this topic

Hi! i;m new, i discovered terrafirmacarft about a week ago, and now have a decent seed (plenty of wood, andesite top layer, clay, lots of fruit trees and some animals) and have played that world about two rl days, We're at the edge of the first winter and I have a breeding pair of cows, 4 pigs, a nice little farmhouse next to a lake made of wood, logs and thatch (found a way to use planks to spiderproof my thatch) a small farming area, and ive even located some sheep. I ave one dog, and it keeps attacking my cattle, so i keep it leashed indoors (can you make them sit/stay in another way? I only have one rope and need to for the sheep) I've yet to make a bed or any armor, and I cannot find any flux stone so far (I've searched quite a way now.)Really this post is just to say hello on these forums (an invaluable resource i;ve already fond, next to the wiki)My main questions so far are : how terrified must I be of winter? is there any way to find salt and or flux reliably or is it just dumb luck? I've not even found a topstone change yet, even when tree types change and biomes do change. oh and how did world generation change? because I hear people on the forum say they know how far they are from the equator, how do you know?

 

So hello all, sorry if I'm breaking rules... new and such.

Welcome.

Only fully familiarized dogs will sit without ropes. Which you can only get to with babies. The partly tamed wolves won't kill animals if they aren't hungry though. But yeah they are a danger. I kinda wish that they would die of old age, as I felt horrible killing one of my wild wolves (other one suffocated in jack-o-lantern.

The winter in SSP isn't too bad if you have a moderate amount of food. I tend to focus on mining and metallurgy progression during first winter.

The equator is z=0. The permanently frozen area is +/- 30000. The sweet spot people tend to settle in is about -8000 to -10000. Seasons are opposite on either side of equator.

Finding rock types is just luck and persistence. Took me a while to find rock salt although turns out salting stuff made my food far to salty for my character.

Best of Luck

Greetings!  Welcome to the board. :)

 

I think Bunsan pretty much covered your questions.  For me winter has never really posed a problem but I do so much exploring that first year, so in SSP I end up with so much food.  Currently living at z-7800 so the temperature does fall below 0 but not for long, downside the summers are pretty hot so food decay is much faster.

This.  I think when I was exploring North looking for Douglas Fir it was easily 1200-1500 blocks before I saw a top layer rock change, but East I hit a new rock in 200 or less.

Aye I lived through winter (febuary now) by slaughtering a wildpig... my own pigs had oodles of piglets (3 pregnant pigs all at huge litters... too many to house) so I have no idea if I can even eat all that meat when they become ready for slaughter... I expanded the farm a bit building sheds for my animals, I now have 3 sheep and a bed, 3 fields and a horse. Now to grow enough grain to familliarize them all well.Also I just settled at my spawn (literally the same pond i spawned next to) and it;s at z -10600... so just in the sweetspot? it's a rather nice spawn , I may write down the seed for others. I haven;t dared cross any oceans yet, but am exploring around, I'm right on top of plenty of iron, copper and bismouth and even found some casserite nearby. I found a bit of platinum while panning and there's gold in the hills too. and there's a few hotsprings nearby  All in all not bad, except no flux so far.Flux will be my next mission! and then a blacksmith! Ah I love this mod!
