      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.

Geology Research

2 posts in this topic

Not sure if this is 'general' or 'off-topic'.

I am wondering where the creators of TFC did their research to learn about the various rock types, ores, metallurgy, wood types, early technologies, etc., for everything that is 'real life'.  I would like to start my own project using similar research (not MC related).  From what I've seen, TFC always brings some fresh new educational stuff to the table.  Is there a book?  A website?  Just Wikipedia?  Geology classes in college?  YouTube videos?

Anyway, thanks in advance!

I'm not a developer myself, but if you're just asking for research on geology, metallurgy, ecology, early history of man's technological progress, etc., you don't have to necessarily ask Bioxx or the other developers here for what they used. In fact, I'd say you're probably better off asking that on a science forum, as there are far more qualified individuals who can point you to better, more peer-reviewed sources.

That being said, I can point you to a few links I just looked up to help you get started:
