TFC2

> TFC2 is a complete, from-scratch rewrite and will be very different from TFC1

From the official page. I really don't understand what they mean with this, is there any info on tfc2? Are they not going to make another primitive survival mod? Or does this have to do with how the newer version of Minecraft generates terrain and such? Or do they simply mean that the interface will be different from what we've seen so far?

Trying to read up on the forums, it seems that Bioxx has decided that the game will take place on hexagonal islands (not sure if the islands are hexagonal or if "chunks" are hexagonal). Getting to a new island will require some form of teleportation, to prevent boats from causing server side lag. Bioxx mentions "conquering" islands before proceeding to the next. Also, there are apparently lots of limitations with minecraft 1.8, so there won't be anymore placement of individual planks or chiseling stone. There's also discussion about higher level random ores to extend metallurgy beyond steel.

In the end, it looks like a huge departure from the normal sandbox gameplay of Minecraft and TFC1. Makes you sort of wonder, why continue using minecraft as platform at all. It'll be interesting to see if TFC2 can compare to TFC1 imo.
