[FLAVOR] 2015-05 -- Terra Forming

Post by Ciabatta on Sun May 17, 2015 9:02 pm

Hello all!

Well Tech World 2 ended up being a big flop, and if anything I feel that we are starting to feel a bit of FTB burnout... despite their ease of installation, each modpack has JUST TOO MANY MODS... enough to saturate the mind and, ironically, stifle creativity -- a true case of being jack of all trades and master of none.  It's about time we took a break from these crazy modpacks and focused on something a little more unitary and measured...

Something like... a full-conversion survival mod. ^^

Enter TerraFirmaCraft!  Like Better Than Wolves before it, it strives to overhaul the entire game mechanics of Minecraft, introducing different kinds of realistic crafting methods, harvesting methods, seasons, breeding, temperature considerations, pottery and smelting, enough to make the game realistic and challenging, but creative and rewarding!  It truly makes this like a whole new game!



So I'm pleased to officially announce TerraFirmaCraft as our May Flavor for Little Brother!

Here are the details of this month's flavor:

  • This is using Minecraft 1.7.10, and Forge 10.13.2.1291.
  • TerraFirmaCraft will be the sole featured mod -- however, it is really all we need, considering how many new blocks and items it introduces into the game (including some amazing new food items, yum!).  
  • The map is generated based on the native "TFC" world generation.
  • Flammole and InvisibleDragon continue to be the permanent moderators.  Coco will continue to be our Monthly Moderator for this month.
  • Difficulty is set to "Normal Mode" since the mod is already hard-enough.  Smile
  • A Dynmap is employed with this flavor, although it is using an Alpha build so block fidelity may not be perfect.


For Installation:


  1. Create a new Little Brother profile in your launcher and have it set to Minecraft 1.7.10 -- run the game at least once to download the necessary Version files.
  2. Download Forge 10.13.2.1291 for Minecraft v1.7.10 and run the installer.
  3. Back in the Little Brother profile, set the Game Directory to a new folder of your choice and the Use Version to the new Forge for 1.7.10, and run the game.  This will allow game files (including the /mods folder) for this Little Brother profile to be created in a separate folder, thus eliminating the risk of overwriting your standard Big Sister files in the main Minecraft directory.
  4. Download TerraFirmaCraft Beta 0.79.18.673 for Minecraft 1.7.10:
    http://terrafirmacraft.com/download.html
  5. Copy the above mod to your /mods folder inside the custom folder you specified in the Little Brother profile's Game Directory. 
  6. Load the game using the Little Brother profile, add littlebrother.mcserver.ws into your Multiplayer list, and enjoy!


And that's it!

Good luck playing Survival Mode the way it SHOULD be!

And although I don't have any inspirational videos dealing with terra firmaness... uh... here's one that's kinda cool... and kinda deals with... uh... new.... world... ness....... yeah.... XD

Well so far it's been going well on Lil' Brother as far as surviving and what not. But it doesn't seem like any people other than myself and BrandonBui have even touched the server.

Hey, I have!  XD

But it's definitely a very challenging server so I don't find it surprising if there is going to be a ramp up phase.  ^^;

Hi Lemon!

Check the wiki's about getting clay... You may randomly find it under grass, and I found loads of it in the forest where you come across some big yellow flowers. ^^
