      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.

[TFC 0.79.15] TFCWedge mod for splitting logs

4 posts in this topic

Update:
I have removed the download link.  Since you can make leather in large ceramic vessels now, I feel that this mod (in its current state) is not releasable.  I still like the idea of creating a new "split lumber" item which cannot be used in place of regular lumber, and I have a couple other ideas rolling around in my brain, so I might be revisiting this later.
 
 
 
So I figured I would give TerraFirmaCraft a go.  It seems complicated, but pretty cool.
 
Unfortunately, I just can't get past the fact that you have to forge metals and craft a saw before you can learn to work wood or make leather.
 
Reading through the forums, I found out that in an older release you could split logs with an axe, but this was intentionally removed.  I guess if you've been playing TerraFirmaCraft for a while it's just another challenge for you to overcome and all part of the fun, but for somebody just trying to get into the mod, it's putting some of the core functionality of the game out of reach for no apparent reason.
 
So I made this mod, and you can now craft two pieces of lumber from a log with a hammer and two stone axe heads, or four pieces of lumber with a hammer and two metal axe heads.
 
The wedges (AKA axe heads) are consumed upon crafting so that you can't just spam-click all your logs into lumber without putting in the work to make enough wedges first.

 

 

 

To Do:

I am considering replacing the result of this crafting recipe with a new "clapboard" item which is only suitable for barrel-making, boat-making, and as a block for house-building.

Just a note, you can do leatherworking without metal tools, since you can process hides in large ceramic vessels. Ceramic vessels and large ceramic vessels also help with inventory management, and the large ones can be carried on your back, unlike chests. So really the only big things you are missing before metal tools is luxury items like doors, and being able to make a house out of planks. However, that's an intentional limitation in the "vanilla" mod because it just isn't believable for a player to have a complete wooden house up to modern building codes without ever using a metal tool.

 

Edit: It's also extremely easy to get enough copper nuggets to make your first metal saw within the first few days of gameplay, especially if you make a gold pan.

Ah, the wiki has led me astray!

 

I already have a large ceramic vessel strapped to my back for inventory management.  I had no idea you could process hides in it and that was my #1 motivation for making this mod.  I may rework it to run with the clapboard idea.  Nobody said anything about modern building codes, but if clapboard was good enough for the Vikings to build their longships out of, it's good enough for my thach-roofed hovel.

 

 

As a side note:  I'm otherwise enjoying the Stone Age and have no interest in metal tools right now.
