      Only help if you can be helpful

      Hey All, A topic has come up of late in the IRC channel in regards to the general feel of the forums and the community that supports them. Things have progressed further than I would have liked with out this being addressed more publicly because I would much rather have snubbed this out sooner rather than later.. but I have been busy. Here is the general rule I would like people to follow: Wheaton's Law "Don't be a dick." Those of you from the IRC channel know that this is the only rule I ask people in there to follow and we generally have a good and lively time chatting about all manner of things. This is basic rule that just about everyone understands and I am going to expand it to the forums from here moving forward. If you can not help people in a helpful and polite manner then I simply ask you to stop. Now I generally take a back seat to moderating the forums as I like to participate in the suggestions forum fairly heavily at times and would rather do so as a forums user than a moderator. But I am also fairly well known for being the person who constantly puts their foot down and so I am stepping up and doing so on here. If you find yourself unable to respond to a message politely then I ask that you do not respond. This mostly focuses on the increasing level of hostility found within the Suggestion forum as well as the Server forum. I do not care if this is the 30th some odd time you have seen someone make the same suggestion. Or even if the new post on an older topic is one entry above the old one. I expect the members of this forum to respond politely to the user, new or old, and point to the older topic if it applies and even go the extra step to suggest they either add in new information or to summarize the outcome of the previous discussion based upon the new post's entry into it. That is what we are here for, that is why I close most topics instead of deleting them, so that they can be found and referenced down the road. The next topic is the slew of derailment attempts I have seen as of late. If you want to have fun and joke around that is what the off topic forum is for and pretty much anything goes there. I do not expect to read a suggestion thread and have to go through 3 pages of image memes people have shot back and forth. Quite simply this is a waste of my time to read and then have to clean up. Now for the summary. I am going to start taking a more active role, especially in policing the suggestion forum, and handing out warn levels to people whom I see doing this. These will be indiscriminate and applied not to just the first person who derails or is impolite on a topic or response, but to everyone whom follows the lead of that person. As I do not like doing things with out giving you all warning this post shall serve as that warning. If you have a desire to bring this topic up with me then I invite you to do so on the IRC channel. Lets raise the level of quality and grow the community. Let us not descend into the quality often found on the minecraft or league of legend forums. There is simply no need for that here. Be passionate about things, just do not be abusive.

      Offline Servers

      Recently I've seen a few server listings showing up on the first page of the Servers forum that have been closed for an extended period of time, but have recently gotten a reply from a new member who didn't realize the server is offline. To help prevent this from happening in the future, it would be greatly appreciated if you could use the report function on the original post of any servers that have been confirmed as offline, so that the topic may be locked. If you are the admin of a server and plan on taking the server offline, please use the report function on the original post of your topic to let the TFC Staff know that the topic should be locked. If you are the admin of a server that has a locked topic, and would wish to bring the server back online, please use the report function on the original post of the topic to let the TFC Staff know that the topic should be unlocked. As always, please remember to follow rule #3 of the servers forum and update your topic title to contain the version of TFC that the server is currently running. You can do so by editing the OP, and then clicking on "Use Full Editor."

  3. [0.79.25] Great Starting Seed

    Did anyone ever find silver? Been searching for a few irl days...
  4. Happy New years everyone Interesting. Best I can tell, some gravel tried to fall into an ungenerated chunk, causing it to generate, but something went wrong when my generation code asked TFC what the climate was there. Since my generator works based on climate information, this caused the crash. Not sure how their climate cache works but maybe this is an edge case. I'll see what I can do to make my code more resilient in this instance.
  5. I have a slight problem. I'm trying to make liquid dye by putting 25 rose dye into a 10000Mb of fresh water barrel and nothing happens. Why is that?
  6. Enhanced Movement

    For last suggestioni would say that minecraft 1.11+ already has this function (timing the attack charge bar). To say about mods: Mo'Bends (animations) has normal back slot items rendering (except shields from tfc addon, it just render near butt :) Smart Moving (of cource) which has render mistakes. And about the rope: i want to say about the Ropes+ mod. If someone doesnt know it adds rope arrow and hook and other stuf. It is an analog of ExtraFirmaCraft ropes i would say. But rope ladder doesnt work with SM, you cannot climb it... Maybe we dont need to make new SM on TFC base. If work with tfc and smart m source code, i think we can make them work together.
  7. TerraFirmaCraft

    Why not have this mod on other versions of Minecraft?
  8. Mushroom helps?

    Is it really possible that magic mushroom helps you to quit smoking. I dont really know its this is true but this just came in to me. I've read a strange article that says mushrooms helps you to quit smoking but i forgot where that article is now. I just want to ask you guys if you ever tried using mushrooms yourself? Thanks!
  9. Boats/Rafts

    What if you were teleported to shore with a message like *you awake, pushed to shore by the currents* it would be pretty poetic and cool and have the player understand what happened
  10. Ore prosessing

    I've been told that my reasoning was off with folded steel and discovered this is in fact correct. Folded steel of contained impurities and brown spots (rust pockets) however jewel steel which is very recent compaired to every other steel process we listed is considered a much stronger blade steel and tool steel than most other forms. It takes a lot of work to make and is only made in a handful of mills in Japan modernly for a large price. If we used this method than steel could be made with much less machinery but lots of work. I think all the steels should be pretty even stat wise but have their upsides. Machines needed cound be the largest upside to oriental steel as in just needs a clay bloom smelter and an anvil. European steel/ celtic should need very little work compaire to other steels and work similar to tfc1 but be able to be made quickly in mass Damascus/ middle-eastern should be cheap on materials and need a little more work than euro but less than oriental. This would give players advantages based on which area they live in for each steel similar to history
  11. Best Image resizer

    There is a new and very well executed website that allows you to reduce the image size to 70% and speed up the site, I tried it and got the best result, completely free and not requiring any type of registration. I think you need to check this site image resizer
  12. Apparently there are two TFC versions floating around. It has been brought to our attention that the TFC devs released a hot fix for this version without increasing the version number. Because of this we've been running a buggy version of TFC for almost two years. But fortunately this has only affected seven and a half thousand TFC players or so who had to use a scythe to harvest their crops. It's not the first time our server had a crazy quirk like that. Remember when we had "black gold" on our server? We'll just chalk this one up as being part of the HappyDiggers TFC charm Now that we are running the new, same version. Harvesting crops should go a bit better.
  13. Ore prosessing

    The folding of the steel in jap steel was done to even out the impurities not remove them, concentrations off impurities makes for weaker blades as the weaker high impurity region will break first / nucleate cracks. No smith hammered a piece to remove impurities that is ludicrous how does whacking a rapidly oxidising (an impurity) hunk of metal remove impurities? They hammered to shape and to harden (work hardening), and as previously stated they welded the pieces to even out the impurities. On a side note a system to cast multiple ingots at once would be great, it could be balanced by the runners retaining some metal which then requires re-melting or simply is a loss. On cast iron, as noted it has great compressive strength, it also has quite good tensile strength (not that great but decent), however it's toughness is abysmal due to graphite plates forming in the metal. A cast iron mace would be reasonable but yeah generally it would make for pretty poor tools. On cast copper, did they really use copper rather than an alloy because copper has a melting point about the same as iron (higher if my memory serves) of about 1400C which is far higher than something expected from a pre-Bronze age fire, on the other hand if tin was used to dissolve some copper from a copper bearing stone I could understand how temperatures of 800C - 1000C could cast "copper".
  14. Dokucraft Request

    i know theres a lot of blocks and items in TFC. Feel free to combine all 4 packs into one to cover most of the block and item types.
  15. Dokucraft Request

    Hey, i love the Doku Saga texture pack series. Im offering $100 if someone can get permission to convert it and then converts dark, light, high, and dwarven for terrafirmacraft. I don't know if its possible, or if thats a far price, but its what i can offer. Any takers?

  17. [Peaceful] Estasi l'Ateaum | Roleplay |

    IGN: Mythoplastis Age: 30 Timezone: paris time zone Have you read the rules? Yes Do you understand that Estasi l'Ateaum many not be suitable for individuals under the age of 15? yes What interests you about Estasi l'Ateaum? How experienced are you with TFC? allot of TFC expirience Do you think we should add more mods?
  18. Look in the config files, there will be one for TFC Tweaks
  19. Hey, just made an account to tell you I'm having a blast playing this. I'm going mostly solo, and I just got to the point where I've fully automated a steam boiler with coal coke. It's extremely satisfying trying to solve all the problems you normally just fix with a single magic block, while using the very limited tools available. About 120 hours in and loving every minute, thanks for making this awesome pack!
  20. Boreal Forest Village

    link not found
  21. The server owner hasn't replied to this thread since October 6th and hasn't been on these forums since October 25th. That probably means this server is dead :/
  22. Just wondering if i have the wrong ip or not, is the server down?
  23. Its something I'm planning on doing once I get some more testing done with the modpack.
  24. Boats and Ships

    I vote for the portal system. I like the idea of having to survive on each island while exploring it for the portal. I would even like to suggest that the portal system be fashioned after the Stargate. You will need to get "sequence" or address stones from each new island to allow teleportation to new islands. I think an address system would be better than only being able to go one island in any direction at a time. If I am on an island 2 hops away from the starting island I would prefer to be able to dial in the starting island and do it in one hop. I am not sure how we are going to get animals from one island to the next, but it may be easier to get 3 sheep from oneisland to another that is island 2 or more hops away by dialing in an address. For example: if the animals can go through the portal will the leashes break upon arrival? Such that when I get to the first hop they start running off and I have to then get the leashes out and rope them again to get them back in the portal to jump one or x number more times? Of course you would say: "No. why would the leashes break? That would be stupid." Obviously nobody would write code to make the leashes break, but interactions between the many different components often leads to things happening that you wouldn't otherwise think would happen. In addition, an addressing system might help alleviate problems with deciding how far to jump, say East, from the current island. Does a jump take you 1 Island East or two? An addressing system may make this aspect of the portal traveling easier to handle/manage? By having to survive on each island and do the exploration not only prolongs the pliability of the world you are living in (a good thing in my opinion), but it also lends justification for an addressing system such as the Stargate. Having to put hundreds of hours into the world (which I and my fellow crafters gladly do and did do with TFC) should earn us the efficiency of an addressing system.
  25. Roadmap

    The unreal engine has its own programming language and you have to develop the game "around" the engine. A minecraft mod is written in java, which is quite simple but powerful, and the engine just takes the data (the blocks etc) that is stored somewhere in memory and it displays it. It's 10 times more work and only makes sense if you see some money on the other end
  26. Roadmap

    Isn't there any engine that would work for a block game in the same way as Unreal Engine? I mean Unreal has a system where you can make the game and publish it and you pay a percentage of the sales. From what I read it looks like a good deal.
  27. Do you check the forum everyday?

    I check the forums once every week or two these days. Since TFC does edit so many things it may benefit by switching to something liketerasologyor other open source minecraft cloneswhere there is more control. It involves a lot more work but the benefits are a more stable and once progressing far enough a mod the size of TFC with an active community backing it could drive development for that project. Meaning it'll cater to the needs of TFC. The downside is attracting players and developers. First is attracting developers willing to take on the task. It's a largetask both because of the scope of TFC and there's more back-endwork which in Minecraftis handled by Forge. Thatmeans slow development. After developing for at least half a year, there's the issue of nurturinga community at that point. I found TFC through Minecraftlike many others and that wouldn't necessarily be the case if TFC broke from Minecraft. On top of that, there's the issue of what is TFC? Is it whatever Bioxx and friends develop? Is it a blocky version that mimics the real world? Does it mean absolutely no magic? If it's development drivensolelyby Bioxx, then that'll be difficult. Permission must at least be granted by him if this site were to be used to promote a non-minecraftversion of TFC. I monitor the suggestion forums a lot and have noticed a split in the community on the lines of "magic". Some enthusiasticallyembrace it while others lament that it will be the downfall of TFC. Either way, an identity for TFC would need to be agreed upon if the plan is to have more than one developer at some point.
  28. Roadmap

    The gfx engine is the issue, for a one man team or even a small team coding around an engine is a full time job.
