      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.

[TFC 0.79.23+] TFC Scales - divide your food precisely :)

41 posts in this topic

logo.png TFC Scales - divide your food precisely :)

This is a simple mod that allows you to build scales and make weights to use in your kitchen.

Remember that time you had exactly 160 oz. of potatoes and you wanted to make four barrels of vodka? But you've forgotten to cut the potatoes with your knife and by the time you placed the barrels and filled them with water, your potatoes decayed slightly and you were able to make only three barrels?

Remember that time you had 158 oz of cherries and wanted to turn your barrel of vodka into a barrel of vinegar? And how you huffed and puffed and cut and joined and calculated to get as close to 100 oz. as possible (because you really, really wanted to just eat the rest of your cherries)?

Well, now you can use "advanced technology" - the scales.

 

First, you craft your scales:

Scales_recipe.png Scales_model.png

 

Next, you need to make weigths. For weights you use anvil (copper will do) and the following materials:

  • one tin ingot for five 1 oz. weights or one 5 oz. weight
  • one silver ingot for five 2 oz. weights or one 10 oz. weight
  • one gold ingot for one 20 oz. weight
  • one platinum ingot for one 50 oz. weight

Finally, you can use your new kitchen tool. Click to open the interface. The bottom slots are for storing your weights - the weights stack up to 8 in your inventory and in these slots. The top left 9 slots are the left bowl of your scale - put the weights there. The slots on the right are for food - you put your food in the left one, press Cut (make sure you have a knife to cut with in your inventory!) and the amount equal to the weights in the bowl will be cut and put in the right slot.

The scales do not remove decay from your food! That way, you can divide those 160 oz. of slightly decayed potatoes into 4 equal parts and still enjoy your 4 barrels of vodka. If you want to get rid of decay, do it the old-fashoned way.

 

 

See how it works:

This is a great little idea. I look forward to trying it out. The weights are smithed on an anvil, right? My first thought was it was a bit cheap to make with just the lumber and bowls, but you do need the weights in order to use it right? Am I correct in understanding that you can't just put 40oz of food in the left grid and then cut off an equal part of food from the food slot?

"the amount equal to the weights in the bowl will be cut and put in the right slot" - zero weights mean zero amount cut off from the source chunk. And nothing else but weights can be placed in the left bowl.

Actualy I wanted this to be a pretty basic item, but one cannot add new molds to the pottery system, so the anvil was the only solution for keeping in the TFC spirit. The only thing we could do was to allow all the weights to be produced using the most basic anvil - the copper one.

Nice piece of inventory for my kitchen. Well done. I use the shift-click-cut to get a lot of pieces with halved weight and then I add up as much as i need to get as close as possible. But this piece looks great.

Does this still work for 79.24? It would suck if it became abandoned, I use this addon a lot. Lol

Great to hear, this is a VERY useful mod I'm sure alot of players can't play without so I'm sure they will be VERY happy once you do get it updated. I'll be adding it to the server I'm starting up once it updates.

I'm using this mod with TFC 0.79.26 and I don't see any plans in the anvil for making weights. I put in a tin ingot and there's nothing.

What kind of anvil are you using? A stone one probably won't work.

I'm using a wrought iron anvil. If I put in other ingots like a wrought iron ingot I can see plans for all sorts of tool heads. If I put in a gold or tin ingot, there's no plans for making the weights.

I just tested it on TFC 0.79.26 with wrought iron ingot, stone hammer and a gold ingot and I see the plan for 20 oz weight.

 

Are you sure you place the ingot in the left (input) slot? It is possible to put it in the right (output) slot, then nothing happens if you click on plans button.

 

If you are sure the ingot is placed in the left slot, please, answer that:

 

1) What other mods are you using?

 

2) Are you playing on single or on a server? If on a server, are you sure the server has TFCScales installed?

Yes I'm placing the ingot on the left side. I have a biismuth bronze hammer in the hammer slot. I have flux in the flux slot.

These are my mods:

I am playing on a server which I know has the TFC Scales mod as I run the server myself and can craft and place the scales themselves just fine. Spawning in the weights also works fine. I just can't see the plan for making the weights.

I would like to include this mod in my pack called TerraFirmaPunk, which is currently available in the Third Party section of the FTB launcher. 

A Great many people have been requesting that I include this mod with the rest of the pack in order to provide a better means of food handling and processing.

I like what you have done with the mod. It seems very well thought out and balanced, and the use of platinum is a nice touch :D
