Late reply, but should be fixed with recent versions. We run this mod on our small pop private server, and the beam connects look okay so far.

Hi, currently using your mod and its lovely, however in multiplayer the posts always are t-shaped and never correctly connect to the beams. in SP the issue does not exist.

Zach2039 One other suggestion. The posts and beams are currently set to occupy the center of each block. How difficult would it be to have the ability to shift from the center to the corners or sides? Perhaps by using a tool in hand with a right click like the wrench? That way you could have post and beam blocks along the inside or outside of walls, tight to the wall, as well as the usual positioning. Failing that, recipe variations for the corner posts similar to the way shingled roof blocks are currently done

Thanks for fulfilling my request!
It would be more flexible if the posts and beams with bark installed could also be right clicked with the axe and the bark could be peeled off, if you could craft with the peeled wood, or if you could do something with the peeled bark.
But then it would have to be compatible with Ancient Tools.

🥂 Cheers, Zach2039 - thank you :)

PeterSanderson, macoto_hino

Done. Both posts and beams can now be converted with an axe to their debarked versions.

💬 PeterSanderson, Jan 19th 2023 at 4:29 PM

Seconded request for debarked versions. Will follow with interest as this was one of the features I really liked from TFC.

Barked posts and beams would be a good choice for indoor use.
I'd like to see it ultimately aim for the Mini-chiri in the Minecraft mod.😀
