Getting started

So you’ve decided to play some TFC, that’s great. It’s a fun challenging difference from vanilla Minecraft.

Top Suggestion:

Either write down your home coordinates, and other locations of interest -or- set yourself up with a mini map. I’ve used both Map writer and Rei’s mini map, But of course there are many others available which I suggest you check out. You want to make sure the minimap you pick is right for you.

In any biome you start in the first thing you want to do is gather rocks (it doesn’t matter what colour/type rocks for right now) and sticks. These will be used to get you the basic tools in TFC.

Rocks are scattered along the floors of all biomes, while sticks can be found on the ground and picked up by left clicking/punching. Sticks can also be gained by punching tree leaves.

Tools (Click me)

Stone Tools

AXE

An axe will get us wood and fruit tree saplings. It offers slashing damage when used as a unconventional weapon. Endermen and Zombies are weak against it, but using for such will take twice your durability per hit.

SHOVEL

A shovel will allow us to gather dirt, sand, gravel and charcoal when making a charcoal pit.

HOE

A hoe can be used to till land, check the water level and if crops are finished growing.

HAMMER

A Hammer can be used with anvils and chisels. It offers crushing damage against skeletons and endermen, but using for such will take twice your durability per hit.

KNIFE

A Knife can be used to cut down grass to gain straw, take decay off food, and a few other things. It offers piercing damage which is effective against wolves, bears, creepers and endermen.

JAVELIN

A Javelin is used as a weapon, and can be used similar in a way to an arrow as you are able to draw it back to increase force of the javelin.

Clay Tool Molds

Clay tool molds can be filled with copper and the types of bronze. Anything above that must be worked in ingot form on an anvil.
