      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.

Realistic Survival House Build

27 posts in this topic

I thought I would share the current house I am building in my survival world as I am trying to keep it as real as possible.

I have the basement done and will be posting a full home tour once it is entirely build and furnished the way I want :)

Let me know what you guys think as I would love to get some feedback and maybe some ideas for the layout upstairs :)

Design looks good but it's only 1/3 of a large house so far :D You must have a lot of resources.

Not really, just a lot of time and a efficient tree farm lol. I have burned through a metric butt ton of spruce already and I am not even close to done lol.

All of the wood in there so far is pure spruce planks... Very time consuming but aesthetically pleasing. I tried the support beams but they didn't seem to look as good to me.

What type of bushes are those? They look good, and you have found a lot of them.

Those are raspberries and blackberries. I usually spent a few in game weeks just following the coastline and weaving inland if I run out of that looking for seeds so I tend to gather a very wide variety of seeds, bushes and fruit tree saplings as well as plenty of each specimen. It's not the easiest way to play but I tend to manage eek through my first winter in a spot the really suits me. I have strict requirements for a homestead site including elevated water source, decent flat ground near by and a northern z coords as I do love seasons and the challenge.Oh btw the other light green ones are gooseberries and I found several patches of those in my pre Stone Age nomadic period.

It looks like your images are broken. Could you try uploading them to a 3rd party site and then linking them? I'd be happy to update your posts afterwards so the image properly displays.

I think I fixed them now... sorry. I posted them to a third party site yesterday and I must have grabbed the wrong link when I put them here

I like the idea, I'm going to steal it. Question though, I may have missed it in a bug report, did they fix the whole planks being super laggy?

I haven't noticed any real lag to them except occasionally they refuse to render at startup.

I think the lag was caused mainly by lots of lumber being used - this would appear to be planks, chiselled ("slabbed") down to be the desired dimensions.

(thinking about it it may also have been detail mode chiselling causing lag)I do seem to remember a changelog (maybe B79.16) which said the lag had been fixed.

This is not plank blocks chisels down. This is done entirely by hand with lumber pieces. I will be posting another of these when I finally get to that point again on the new world I had to build over again because the world had become corrupted and I lost all of it.

Please do, I took some inspiration and tried to do similar, but I didn't like the result so much when it came time to do the roof, I'd like to see how you do it. You should totally make a guide for it!

The roof will definitely be tricky and I am not really sure how I will approach it. I am excited at the prospect of the shingling a bit more than the framing though. As for a guide, I can try but I won't promise how good it will turn out lol.

Yeah, that is the trouble I had. I might try again and instead of doing a traditional roof, I may just do a thatch roof, since you can creatively use plank trim to make it relatively spider proof. I would post screen shots of my build, but I ended up getting rid of that world for a lack of metals in the area I had settled down in. I thought I had a good source of copper, but it dried up really quickly!
