      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.

Gases

7 posts in this topic

I got a new idea yesterday. What if we had gas blocks?

 

Properties

 

They could, like water, flow, but not downwards, but gas blocks could flow upwards. In addition, the source block could lift up every 10 seconds, and at 256 height it despawns.

 

Gas Containers and Gas Tanks

 

They could be picked up with a gas container. One of wrought iron will do similar to a wooden bucket. It lets you collect the gas, but you can't place the source. One of blue/red steel will do like the bucket made of the same material. The blue/red steel gas container will place the source.

 

On the other hand, gas tanks are blocks that can hold the gas without it escaping, for storage. It could be made out of fireclay, like a crucible.

 

Now, on the kinds of gas:

 

Air

 

This one is already in the game. You breath with it. Nothing else could be said about it I guess.

 

Natural gas

 

This beauty could spawn in caves with sedimentary or metamorphic rocks, like shale, claystone or others. Natural gas will make mining extremely dangerous. Just placing a torch in a gas pocket will light it in a few ticks, spawning fire blocks all over the place if there are air blocks adjacent to the natural gas pocket. No mobs spawn in a gas pocket. Detecting the gas could be difficult, because it is colorless and odorless. Maybe, because you can't breathe in it, it gives bubbles just like when you're underwater?

 

I don't know if this goes with the theme of TFC, but this gas, apart from being another danger in the caves, could be used for cooking. I don't know if we are either able to refine this gas in TFC's theme.

 

Smoke

 

Results from the burning of wood and coal. In closed areas, smoke can cover an entire room, making it unsafe for health. It can cause poison, to represent intoxication, as well as bubbles, due to the lack of fresh air. However, to prevent smoke from building up, a hole could be made, or a door opened for it to escape. The hotter firepits or forges are, the more smoke per second they release. But forges releases 2 times more smoke than firepits. Bloomeries and blast furnaces could release smoke as well.

 

Steam

 

Hot water, could be used in steam machines, like in Steams addon for TFC.

Is it compatible with TFC?

Not currently, but I've contacted the developer about changing something small so it will be. As always, we'd much rather work on making a mod compatible than add everything that mod has to TFC.
