      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.

[help wanted] AeroFirmaCraft

So, I'm not much of a programmer, nor have I ever made a mod, etc,etc, but I'd like to work on a mod for TFC that will be similar to , and would love to have a bit of help with it. I already have a few ideas for it:

 

  • Barrels will allow for composting into dirt
  • something along the lines of actual composting methods
  • idea 1) sealing plant material with water [easy to execute]
  • idea 2) having high nitrogen (green stuff) and high carbon (brown stuff) in an open barrel [not sure how to execute]
[*]addition of Skylonite
  • Skylonite dirt does not fall (?)
  • Skylonite dirt is made from composting
  • Skylonite gravel holds all ores + gems
[*]Reworking of hammers
  • hammers can brake stone into gravel, etc, etc.
[*]using barrels of water and dust [*]adding config option for void world

 

there are a few things I'd like to iron out (concept wise that is)

 

  • How to "sieve" out rocks/etc?
  • how would one start off?
  • what should the starting equipment be?

 

So, yeah, any input/etc would be awesome. Again, new to modding, inexperienced in programming, and mostly full of ideas. Anyway, let me know what you guys think, etc, thanks!

Hammers already break some stones into flux. Although I did like the idea, maybe cobblestone can be broken with a hammer to gravel, gravel to sand? maybe you'd need a machine though?

 

What would be the result of the composting? Fertilizer? You don't say.

 

You need more details on Skylonite, what is IT, why would it's dirt behave differently. Is it ONLY made from composting? I would expect to not make "dirt" and to make compost/fertilizer.

 

You need to flesh out the rest of your idea, water and dust (dust from?) to make what?

 

As for starting off, there are lots of videos around, there's even a tutorial set on this site somewhere. It's not hard, but it's not straight forward either.

I'm guessing this suggestion is based on all of the recent skyblock maps like Agrarian skies. Where you break stuff down with a hammer, sieve it, etc. In those cases, dust in a barrel + water gives you clay.

Right on the money there. However, I'm looking to make a TFC feeling addon to allow for a "from nothing" approach, but still with the same feel of TFC, where it is more logical than how exnihilo currently works, and only adding a few things, tweeking a few things (hence the skyorite and what not). also, I have a nasty habit of only being on here when tired, so I'll come back to this when more allert.
