I'm not sure what even happened to the thread? Does the server still exist? 
I haven't played it in some time, but I remember it being really fun.
Does anyone have the newest version for download?
Did anyone play it as of late?
Also if you want to talk about Terrafirmacraft too you can.
>>169373 (OP) 
Never played it, but I remember the thread ending with what amounts to "devs changed account stuff, piracy no longer an option, fuck this shit" or something along those lines.
So I'm gonna go with no on most of your questions, except for perhaps a few buyfags still playing it alone.

If you you are asking why am I talking about tfc plus now. It's actually quite good and imo best version of tfc. It's mostly because there are many stuff added from the 1.12 an 1.7 versions.
And since you said that I should wait. I could try it again.

Vintage Story will remain a boring, pointless minecraft clone UNTIL they add some actual fucking enemies in the game. 
There is literally no reason to build anything other than a mudhut in this game. The most impressive castle you could ever build has the exact same survival value as a hole in the ground. Why? Because enemies in this game are completely braindead and can't even break through walls made out of bamboo. 

The only reason to build anything in Vintage Story is just so you can look at it, that's it. But if I just wanted to build stuff to look at then I'd just load up minecraft and not have to grind for 100 hours to get the tech and resources needed to make an impressive structure.
Actually you're supposed to build things to support the infrastructure required to advance the tech tree in Vintage Story. Unlike Minecraft you have reasons to build different buildings for shit like root cellars, windmills, charcoal pits etc. because they have specific requirements to become functional.
Defense isn't really the name of the game, though having a killbox for temporal storm farming is worth it.
Replies: >>169824
But that's still ultimately grind with no gameplay value other than making something big and fancy to post screenshots of on the official subreddit for karma.

>pointless minecraft clone UNTIL they add some actual fucking enemies in the game
This is the mindset that ruined minecraft.
First they wanted more enemies.
Then they wanted hunger mechanics.
The "Creative mode is meaningless because you don't have to grind for resources" attitude becomes prevalent.
Then gear enhancements, potions, and levels.
Suddenly the game that people were will to drop $8 on in 2008, which did nothing more than put colored blocks on top each other in a browser window, has teleporting niggers fucking up the terrain, sky niggers bumping you off cliffs because you didn't return to a bed in the last 5 minutes, and a fucking 'final boss' with a pretentious ending credits. Somewhere in all the the terrain generation went to shit.

Here you go: https://github.com/snakeriot/vs-wildfirming-fix/blob/main/vs-wildfarming-1.3.4.zip
I'd rather see them lean more into some sort of loose "plot" that you progress by building infrastructure and equipment and alter the environment enough to arrive at some kind of resolution where you 'heal' whatever the fuck the Rot is supposed to be. I don't actually know this game's lore at all beyond it's actually a post-apocalypse where everyone went insane and dove underground for some reason. I definitely want more enemies with actual mechanics beyond "melee attack + ranged attack" but to me, that's secondary to finding some place in the wilderness and bringing it under my absolute control. 
But I am also a faggot who has put around 400 hours into Project Zomboid just because I like wandering around killing shit and going through increasingly tedious crafting mechanics to make a cozy home. This game is so early access that I see people coming at it from dozens of different perspectives.And everyone is wrong but me.

Drifters are legitimately the worst enemy in any game I've ever played, to the point they make me not want to play the game again. Every other enemy I'm fine with but jesus christ the drifters need to be reworked badly. I'm not ashamed to admit the bell makes me shit my pants every time I encounter one though.
Replies: >>170019 >>170020
I dont like how enemy spawns work because most of them make it nearly impossible to close off an area if there are hills or anything other than a straight wall of a mountain or walls across a flat area. if you build near a cliff edge or water prepare to hear drifters moan constantly until you go out find and kill them only to have them return moments later. 

The game would be much more interesting with a decent combat system and more interesting enemies that telegraphed their attacks a bit more instead of it being a fast animation with a range that doesnt remotely match the visual.
They're genuinely awful now that they can throw rocks over fences.

It took me a while to figure out that lower stability affects spawn rates and conditions, which is just another annoying things getting in the way of  a comfy homesteading game. It's basically impossible to live the dorf life in this game because everything underground in unstable. Such a shame for a game that can generate a world 2048 blocks in height.

Now let's get into the autism of MODS. Be sure to include so many that the game breaks and has many problems.  Make sure to add mods that create so many items that the in game guide becomes clogged with 500 different color combinations from different types of wood and removing the mod breaks the game and puts white "?" blocks all over the server.
Also be sure to argue for such a long time about which mods to include that the version becomes old and antiquated while the mods become incompatible and discontinued. Then as we migrate to the new version, the mods we decided to keep are no longer being updated.

I think this mod is pretty mandatory so i can properly express myself.

Cool to see a Millenaire successor for VS. Looks pretty raw with the villagers just standing around and not being able to found villages. 

We played with 20 day months last time, and without any buff to crop yield (grains are nerfed pretty hard from the looks of it) I fear we'll all be starving to death for a while. With base settings this seems a masochistic but I also really like the new crops. I'll leave it to anons to decide, we can always remove it later. The rest of these are in.

Replies: >>170341
I'm one of those mongrels that subsists forever off plain grain porridge and burnt meat so I can't say much about XFoods.
However, Primitive Survival enables propagating cattail reeds with a knife + bucket o' water.
This means that as soon as you have buckets you have infinite food, because 1 reed shoot  becomes 2 and so on until your knife breaks. 
It's great to have infinite compost fodder but it really kills the point of the entire homesteading/surviving the winter theme. 
A post from a rando like me would just get lost in the noise but a nudge from you might get SpearandFang to balance that shit a little.

In my opinion there's 7 worthwhile specializations: 
  Temp. stability
The rest don't really have worthwhile benefits tied to their specializations except arguably combat. the survival tree gives you +1, so setting the base to 6 you allow for all of these. Looking at limiting xp gain, setting the global rate to x0.8 would make specialized skills have x1.12 xp rate instead of x1.4. This isn't much of a nerf for anything but survival which is leveled by playtime/going afk. Could always go 9 + 1 to max everything.

This crack appears to be from the same group as last time but please take precautions. 

>Survival enables propagating cattail reeds with a knife + bucket o' water.
Wait, is it just straight duplication of cattails for as long as your knife has durability? Because that's pretty busted.

>diamonds required for the top tier
I think I prefer the flax sink, but there's no harm in running both. Also looks like temporal tinkerer updated a week ago: https://mods.vintagestory.at/temporaltinkerer

That sounds like a pretty blatant infinite dupe. I don't think I get what recipe you're talking about that does that, though. All I see is that you can cut reed & hand baskets up into cattails. Nothing about cattail roots. You got any pics?

Yes, but they're also edible. Creating the cattail roots for planting creates infinite food. The items created from the root to be planted needs to be non-edible to balance this.
Replies: >>170420 >>170423
Oh, I get it. Duh. Yeah, in that case go into your Vintage Story installation and into assets\survival\itemtypes\resource\cattailroot.json and copy it into a new file called "cattailseed" or whatever. Then remove the 'combustibleProps' stuff so you can't cook them anymore and edit the grid recipe I mentioned in my last post to output "yourmod:cattailseed", or just "wildfarming:cattailseed" if you put your item in there.
Replies: >>170421
I'll give it a try later tonight, thanks.
Replies: >>170422
No problem. Since it'll be a completely separate item from the normal cattail roots, it shouldn't conflict with Expanded Foods and should remain uncookable.
The json part of making a proper split cattail root item shouldn't be hard. I haven't played with the model maker much but if you bisected the full root's model and added a white texture to the new surface it'd look servicable. The tricky part is the code behind planting and growth. Easiest way I can think of would be to copy the planting behavior out of here: https://github.com/anegostudios/vssurvivalmod/blob/master/Item/ItemCattailRoots.cs but also set up a proper plant/block that turns into normal cattail roots after x amount of time, which would then start the vanilla growth cycle. That last bit's what I don't know how to do.

Yes but you have to run around ripping them out from all over normally. This is instant duplication, you can fill a farm with a single root in minutes.

Yeah, I'd favor making the cut root inedible. If that tiny amount of sat is what keeps you alive there's probably something else you can do. If its easier to just halve the sat value in json though then it doesn't matter.

Now that I look again the original wild farming mod seems out of date, and the fix some guy made for 1.17 is just a zip while his pr is still pending. What a mess.
Replies: >>170424 >>170425
Yeah, I honestly haven't used Wild Farming at all in my singleplayer game. I'm not sure how much is "fixed" in that fix.
>Yeah, I'd favor making the cut root inedible. 
I proposed making the plantable a new item because of the xFoods recipes that use cattail root. So long as those exist simply making the root inedible doesn't prevent the creation of infinite food.
Replies: >>170427
By cut root I meant the new item, yes.
After digging it looks like no extra c# code i needed to add growth time, but assets/survival/blocktypes/plant/reedpapyrus.json would need to be modified under the transientPropsByType section. Maybe add a tallplant-coopersreed-seed variant that converts to tallplant-coopersreed-harvested-{cover}. From there it'd be vanilla behavior.

The goal is to make life easier for yourself and build yourself a comfy home.
I prefer permadeath and reload my game if i die. I wish there was a mod that cancelled autosaving and just made the game work strictly with save points and loading so a Game Over would become possible (for example getting yourself into a situation where you starve to death and are unable to get food or recover from an injury rather than just respawning with a full belly making death have almost no penalty)
The end game is securing your existence and advancing your tech and setting your own goals. 
You could also choose to explore and see the different biomes which can be literally days of IRL traveling. Traveling long distance like that requires in-game years of prep to stock up food, viable weapons, stacks of steel ingots/anvil/hammers to take with you for on-the-go smelting. It's more fun to travel with groups and camp out at night since it's too dark to safely travel.
Animals and food stops spawning around the arctic areas at around 75,000 and dont come back until nearly 150,000 and its so cold you better have full fur clothing and enough stuff to make fires to take breaks and make shelters in the ice to camp in overnight 
Of course you don't have to do any of this. You don't have to do anything.

But there is.
I'm playing it for fun with a small texture pack for instance the axe I have isn't from the regular mod. It's from the texturepack. Also I've added an addon that adds a few things like an adze.
I just used tlauncher but the classical warez launchers should work if you have pre win10 setup
I'd love it if the game simulated more environmental stuff. Things like forests or deserts spreading based on weather conditions and then the animals move accordingly. If we could get some more realistic predator/prey systems set up so there would be a semblance of an ecosystem going on, then being able to manipulate that would be pretty fun. Imagine having to fortify your beachside home to keep it safe from hurricanes and tsunamis and shit, or making mining infrastructure to guard against earthquakes. 
But I hate it when people ideafag about this sort of stuff in early-access games, so I'll shut the fuck up about it.

All these minecraft ripoffs make me feel like less of a fanboy when I say Vintage Story is the best looking one out of all of them. The competition might as well be wallowing in dog shit. It's a bit depressing.

I need to assemble a modlist and do some work on the site. So far I've got:

xSkills + xlib - considering allowing all specializations
Expanded Foods +Cullinary Artillery
More Roads and Paths
Primitive Survival
Wildcraft + trees
Carry On 
Player Corpse
Farmland Drop Soil
From Golden Combs
Animal Cages
Vanilla Variants
Screen Doors 
QoL Tweaks - Stackables - seems op
QOL-Tweaks: OrePulverizer 
More Torch Holders
Better Bloomeries
Stone quarry
Workbench expansion
Temporal tinkerer
Advanced backpacks
More Piles
More clay
Better Crates
Multiblock crates
Extra chests
Superfuels (with the firelog tweaked to allow cooking like last time)
Re-Smeltables light
DS Debarked Logs 
The nightwatcher
Any mod that adds a reasonable way to craft sticks
Teleportation Runes
Preservation Mod
YABBA - Glass Chapter
Cave painting
Attach it 
Better ruins + ruin variants

Mods I'd like but want input on:
Weapon pack alpha
Better Drifters
Tabletop games
More tree seeds/Sustainable Forestry - even with xskills I'm worried about the low seed drop rate
Hey, over here

Some mods aren't quite ready yet:
Wild Farming - Appears to still have issues on 1.17.9, we can add it later since it doesn't effect worldgen.

Fields of gold - after a brief playtest, seems extremely grindy.
Anvil metal recovery - redundant and op with xskills

I've also kept the config from last time for a 25kx25k world with polar-equator distance to give a nice temperate band + tropic region without turning two thirds of the northern half into an ice sheet. I remember I set food decay to 0.5x which was extremely generous, considering 0.8x. How's 20 day months like last time sound?

Server setup was painless on ubuntu so it wont take time to setup. I'll be going with a much nicer serb but I'd still like to try a stress test with anons before fully launching so we don't have people stuttering like last time.

Sorry pal, but Biden just signed a law that says your server can only have seven mods. I'm gonna have to report you.
Replies: >>174826
>Better Bloomeries
Redundant with xSkills, which has a skill to extract from bloomeries without destroying them.

And seed drop rates were fine last time even without forestry skills so long as you properly trimmed them before logging.
That's going to be a big file
Also no ancient tools?
Replies: >>172641 >>174826
Also, xrowboat is insanely weak compared to the raft that's available in Primitive survival. Unless you intend to nerf or remove the raft it's a very useless mod.
>DS debarked logs
Haven't confirmed but forum postings indicated this was fixed in vanilla.
If we're going full autismo with bricklayers, consider picking up Ceramos as well.

I recall we had abundant food in the last server. I see no problem with the default rate.

Ancient Tools is a very good mod, I highly recommend it.
I enjoy some of the stuff the Weapon Pack Alpha adds, such as the bushknife. I can't speak to how balanced it is. I also like Better Drifters but I have no idea what vanilla drifters are like anymore. I hear they throw stones at an insane rate. They throw them a lot with Better Drifters on, but I've been able to consistently dodge them. I don't know if other people are shitters or if Better Drifters is actually easy mode. It's still a very cool mod.
I also don't know if we need a mod that lets you craft sticks. I've made shears once and I have several hundred sticks lying around I have no idea what to do with. 
Ceramos is a late-game mod like Bricklayers. 
Are you sure Wild Farming isn't working? I've noticed in my world that my trees have this little health bar and growth stage system now. I definitely did not have that before I downloaded that fix off github. 

You may also want to look into Cave Content for underground shit. More Animals is a quality mod, too - it only adds a few birds that look fantastic. Bullseye has been really fun for me in singleplayer. Lichen still seems to work in my 1.17.9 save and I love seeing the deer frolic around. 

Here's some QoL mods to consider:
>Axle in Blocks
>More Piles
>Place Every Item
>Rain Collector
>Stone Path Variants
>Temporal Lamp
>Translocator Engineering

Useful Stuff might also be worth consideration, but it's got a lot of random shit. The climbing pick, glider, bendy chutes, and sluice are notable, in my opinion. It also lets you clip lanterns to your backpack and pulverize certain rocks down into sand... or even clay.

After coming back to this game after a long absence I started a new world and made a small fenced off area to spend the night thinking I'd be good. Found out that Drifters can throw stones over fences when they brought out the firing squad.
Those bastards are accurate enough when they surround you.
Replies: >>172692
I'll be honest I kind of want tabletop games even though I know we'd never use it.
They still do that with Better Drifters, but I have no idea how bad it is in vanilla. Are you talking about a literal firing squad? Is it that bad?
Replies: >>172730
They can't lead targets, but if you're not moving or behind cover you're being binked for 1hp.
Why are some mods working and others not? I've the latest version of Primitive Survival showing up in the mod manager as it should, for example, but it's not functioning in game. There's no modconfig json for it made, either. Very not cool.
Replies: >>173268
It sounds like your shit is fucked up and retarded. Primitive Survival works fine.
Replies: >>173271
I did not imply or expect Primitive Survival to be at fault. It is one example among others. What I don't understand is how or why my shit is fucked and retarded when there's seemingly no pattern to this issue. Some mods are working for me and others are not, as previous stated.
Replies: >>173288
Do you have multiple installations? Anything hiding in any extra mod folders?
Replies: >>173290
It's one installation of the latest version graciously posted above, but carried by previous versions VintagestoryData folder. I'll back that up and wipe it when I get back from my job as a special needs prostitute to see if it helps.
>Anything hiding in any extra mod folders?
Right now a bunch of compressed zip files and uncompressed mod folders from when I was trying to figure out the issue.
Replies: >>173293
It sounds like perhaps you have some mods in both your installation folder and the VintagestoryData folder and they may be conflicting. That's my best guess.
Replies: >>173419
Nope and wiping the VintagestoryData folder didn't do anything.
The law cannot stop me

Yes ancient tools

Didn't know about the raft or the log fix

>Rain Collector
I don't see the utility in this, except filling containers before getting a bucket. 

Looking to test a serb next week if anyone's interested.

Yeah been working on the site and having the serb would have been a distraction, prease understandu.

>Also, thoughts on this terrain generation mod, Plans and Valleys?
I fear it may make the world too... plain. I'll have to look into it but we might be better off waiting for 1.8 for a worldgen overhaul. There is this though: https://mods.vintagestory.at/hgnewlandforms
If anyone wants to test either of these please post pics.

God that's hot, I'm imagining a city carved into those cliffs with a harbor below. I really hope Tyron makes mountains more distinguished instead of the perlin noise walls/pillars they tend to be now like pic 2.

Don't know if it's just a great seed or the mod, but the 2.0.2 Base+ Custom landforms seems pretty similar to vanilla. 
Seed: 1552186020

The 'custom only' version loaded one map, which was overall so round and boring I didn't take a picture of it. It then failed to make any new maps even without any other mod active..
Yo l33tman how's expanded foods handle ingredients from other mods? I'm looking at the wild farming + trees specifically.

No serb yet but I'm tweaking configs on the modpack. Test serb in a day or two.

Site migration process is good to go as well

Also it is extremely homosexual that I cannot pick up any of these new lore blocks. Hell the aged tables disintegrate when we can pick up the beds just fine.
Replies: >>176280
Wild farming doesn't add ingredients anymore. Are you talking about Wildcraft? If so, I'm only up to date with version 1.4.4 and I haven't even downloaded Wildcraft Trees at all yet. Don't even ask me about More Crops because that mod is fugly.
Those are all placeholders right now, I've read that they should be moveable in 1.18. That is pretty gay, though. I'd just slip into creative mode to 'move' them as needed.

I am looking at more crops, looks like some of it works but i cant add them to stuff like dumplings. Dunno who would have to fix that. The wildcraft trees fruits are totally unsupported looks like.

I just want beets ban cmon
Got a proper serb up, if anyone wants to help see if anything is broken hop on and I'll give you creative. I'll roll for a decent seed once we confirm this is stable.

This server ins't up to it, I've found a few alternatives that are more catered towards hosting game servers and give more cpu for the same or less. Switching to a new server is a 10 minute job so stay tuned tomorrow.
