      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.

Single player tweaks for casual players

4 posts in this topic

Hello there, 

 

I played tfc a while ago and really got into it. I was also really pleased to see ethos lab on YouTube really play it. I really love the idea of the mod. 

 

However, as a man with a family I always ended up running out of time. I understand the mod is meant to be played on a server with people taking up different roles to continue progress being made. But much like etho found, playing on single player eventually becomes too much work. 

 

Can you please suggest tweaks to be made that make it simpler for those of us with less time to play the mod? I used to adjust ore settings to make it easier to find them, but also things like smithing can become a chore. 

 

Any recommended mods that will help single players? Tweaks? Settings? I love the exploration, the whole idea of the mod but just find it too grindy after a while

I personally like the Technodefirmacraft modpack for this. Not only is the value of ore is increased significantly, but once you get to steel you start to be able to create machines that save the labor of forging. It also adds a whole bunch of mods that you can progress through once you get towards the end of TFC progression. That said, the total amount of time it takes to go through the pack is longer than TFC, as there is simply more content, but less of that time is spent on strictly TFC progression, as it transitions into something far more reminiscent of a standard mod pack in the mid-game. It is not for everyone, but it is a personal favorite of mine.

Joining a server may help. There are also various modpacks that take some of the grind out TFC1.  I like the mod custom NPC's. It allowed me to create an NPC that sells the product when I got bored of making it. Such as charcoal. There are some servers with this already setup.

Ultimately it becomes a question of what you want out of the game. With farming you are done once you've gathered all the seeds, saplings, and copper tools. Most things in TFC1 are pretty much over once you can make a barrel. The only exception to this is smithing. If you want something more then look at the modpacks. If you just want to grind one thing like farming, join a server.

you can just mess around with the config file and boost a bit the ores spawning ;)
