This thread probably needs to be a sticky, and it is for everyone who's interested in the AWESOME Terrafirmacraft mod (which we are using in our newish 4th server).


So far, me, Nickersy and Bryce are probably the people here with the most experience of it, but if you know anything about it feel free to suggest tips too :)


Ok, what is Terrafirmacraft?



It is arguably the way Survival was meant to be played.  There is so much you can do in it that cannot be done in Vanilla Minecraft, Bukkit or even Tekkit.



I'll start with the first few tips and they concern starting out and lag.



1) Don't underestimate mobs in this - they will destroy you quickly and efficiently.  If you must be out at night, make sure there are torches everywhere and that you can easily run back to your base.  If you're underground, it seems you're pretty much screwed unless you have armour.  ALWAYS have at least a few axes and/or knives quickly to hand if you think there's any chance you'll face mobs - they take a lot of punishment before dying!



2) You NEED clay in this mod, unlike normal Minecraft, so collect LOTS of it.  You can make "vessels" with it, then use the vessels like little miniature chests (or I guess backpacks) you can carry around with you.  Each vessel has 4 slots.  Clay can be found under weird yellow flower things, you won't find it elsewhere.  There are "recipes" of a sort for making these clay objects.  Once you make the stuff in clay you place it in a kiln to turn into the ceramic version.  Clay vessel becomes ceramic vessel, clay sword mold becomes ceramic sword mold etc.



3) You get THIRSTY in this.  The more you do, especially jumping and running, the more you get thirsty.  Surprisingly, water helps remedy this.  To quench your thirst, just walk into some water and wait.  Only problem is it's a kinda slow process - so the best thing to do is make a JUG, fill it with water, then drink from it.  Yes, you guessed it, you need clay to make the jug.



4) If you find yourself lagging, tell us.  But also here are some things you can try yourself:

* Disconnect and reconnect.

* Shut down the client and restart.

* Shut down the client, and increase the memory in the -JVM setting.  Mine was 1GB before, now it's 4GB.

* Go into Task Manager (if using Windows) and make sure you only have ONE instance of javaw.exe running.  Alternatively try shutting them both down before restarting.


These should help with lag.  If not, and especially if enough people are also lagging we'll reboot the server.



5) Make peace with your maker - this mod is hard :P



Anymore tips?  Nick?  Bryce?  Hope these prove to be useful ;)



TL;DR?  Die.

6) There are CAVE-INS!  So if you're mining like you normally do in Minecraft, don't be surprised if a few hundred million tonnes of rock and soil collapse in on you when you least expect it.  Like just happened to me lol.  To combat this you need "support beams". :)

TIP! When you are waiting for something i.e. Ceramic mold hardening/cooking etc then log off if you have unshaped liquid that you dont want to harden
