      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.

You start off close enough to the equator that you've got a plethora of food. I passed by tons of chickens and pigs in the plains as I explored. Unfortunately, the geome is Quartzite so while I found a couple of Tetrahedrite and even a Sphalerite deposit, there was no surface copper to be found. Also marked on the map is a Hot Springs which is also conveniently located near a fresh water pond.

 

The mountain to the south had some caves and it turned into Slate, so that might be more promising to prospect in. However, I suspect your first copper is going to come from (pun intended) pan-handling.

 

Plenty of fruit trees which blossom in different seasons, some berry bushes, tons of Jute, several different types of cereal grains to select from, soybeans near spawn just inside the plains area, lots of clay deposits, several vegetables to pick from... in all, you aren't going hungry here, even if it will be challenging to break out of the stone age. Once you get do, however, chickens and nest boxes are going to provide a renewable supply of protein so the soybeans are going to be less important, and you have enough pigs in the area for pigsplosion and starting up a tannery.

 

The only biological resources you may have to journey for are sheep and cows, which are going to be several thousand blocks away since you are so close to the equator.

 

EDIT:

 

There's Tetrahedrite (copper), Sphalerite (Zinc) and now I found a source of Bismuthite to make Bismuth Bronze with. Also, on the peninsula to the far east (2747,-6976) the eastern coast all the way half way down the continent on the shoreline is all Chalk, so you have abundant flux as well. In other words, an excellent starting seed that will take you into the Bronze Age before needing to expand your horizons.

Just FYI, you can totally find cows near that latitude.  Sheep will be further.

You do realize that Tetrahedrite is copper right? So if you found that, then you found surface copper.

Ahh,. I thought Tetrahedrite was Zinc. Hmmm.. much better seed than I thought, then.

The area is too hot and wet for cows. Rainfall is over 1000 and temp is up around 35. Temp needs to be down around 30 and the rainfall needs to be under 500 for Cows to spawn Edited by ShneekeyTheLost

Fair enough, but you said earlier (emphasis mine):

That implied to me that you thought just by being close to the equator, they wouldn't be present.  Which is not true.  I've seen cows 6k blocks from equator.  So based on that I thought I'd help out by pointing out they *might* still be near.     If you've explored all the blocks within that range and found no cows, and high rain biomes, ok, fine, but if so I did not know that you had explored so much.  Rain is not tied to the equator, to the best of my knowledge, but simply to biome.   *Average* biome temperature, to the best of my knowledge, IS directly tied to distance from equator.  But in my experience does not reach 30 until near 6k from equator.  That's why I said what I did.
