      Server Move   09/13/2018

      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.

      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord (http://invite.gg/TerraFirmaCraft) is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

General smithing

3 posts in this topic

I'm curious about what all affects the quality of forged items. Does the number of actions performed during smithing affect item quality? Does the total amount of travel of the green arrow (i.e. the total amount the metal has been worked) affect item quality? Or is item quality determined only by the material's base quality modified by the applicable smithing skills?

I'm not looking for behind-the-scenes numbers or a guide for perfect tools. I'm just wondering if player skill has any effect on top of character skill.

Each tool material has its base characteristics which are then modified by the players skill value.

Skill points are earned by completing a craft on the anvil. With the exception of processing blooms and welding all crafts earn general smith skill points. Crafting a tool head, weapon head or armour earns tool smithing, weapon smithing or armour smithing points respectively. 

General skill and applicable smithing skill are then applied to the craft upon completion. 

The number of moves, amount the arrow moves etc have no effect on modifiers. Just craft a lot of stuff to get best bonus. If playing SMP having a select group of players do all the anvil work is recommended.

Thanks. That's what I suspected.

Being entirely grind based is a bit of a shame for such a nice feature. I've posted some suggestions for TFC2 in this regard. ;)
