      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."

  12. Food + Taste + Hunger

    That's a thought. It brings to mind final fantasy 15 where different foods give you different temporary buffs. The parts I like is it is abstracted from reality yet familiar enough to be recognizable. The only downside I see is lining up the buffs with the expected stat. Strengthis directly translatable, but is Endurance more hp, absorption, or resistance and what is Mana fluidity? As long as the buff and the name make sense then it's okay to use RPG terms for nutrition and it might even gain a wider audience for TFC2.
  13. Hi folks! I'm at it again... Pack is TerraFirmaPunk, cos I'm lazy and wanted Smart Moving handed to me.

  15. Food + Taste + Hunger

    Stroam, you made my day. I was feeling blue but you made me had a nice laugh. Don't ask me why I found so funny thinking how to "abstract" from 5 to 8.Don't mind me Any way, For one side I understand changing the numbers to not longer fit a pre-understood system. I like the idea in general, but I am thinking, is it complexity for the sake of complexity? What if, instead of the classical nutritional approach we focus on a more RPG style approach? For example, Strength might, Mind fluidity, Endurance (HP), Mana veins, and Stamina. These are an example (and maybe a bit bad), but the general idea is that each food instead of being in a single group, they have different "RPG nutritional" values that works toward a particular clear goal. They can also have consequences for over eating or the lack thereof: Too much STR and your "muscles" grow big and slow you down your swings, to little and your carry capacity suffer, and so on. You can also balance towards healty balanced diets;after a particularthreshold the "body" start to have adverse effect if the values are not balanced enough, you can die or you can explode (and die). The idea is the "same" from the nutritional approach, just with a different, more gaming, focus. It is believable since you can say that "it is the reflection of a healthy diet, just you are measuring different things". And with that you are free from the "mundane real world".

  17. Food + Taste + Hunger

    Inspired by this topicand this topic. While I think the 5 basic food groups is something everyone is familiar with I agree with other individuals it should be abstracted to eight(insert manageable number) groups. By abstracting it and changing the number from five you no longer have the issue of people arguing over how it matches to reality. Next food items should have a different amount of each and they don't have to make sense, for instance, boiled and scrambled eggs could have different nutrients. This makes it easier to balance and code. Each category then keeps track of the last four(insert your favorite number here) foods consumed in that category. If you eat the same thing then the nutrients you get from that item is reduced. As the categories fill up the player gainsbuffs to health or other stats. While this is difficult to figure out what gives what, as long as a player eats a variety of foods they don't need to know what gives what. Those who want to minimize the variety of foods they need to eat or want to consistentlyget the full amount of nutrients will become chefs and greatly benefit from a system like the TFC1 cooking skillbut for nutrients instead of taste. On top of all of this, thereis hunger and saturation which I wouldn't change other than giving a temporary slowness debuff if more hunger is restored thanyou have room left for. A reminder that eatingtoo much is bad for you but that's because I'm evil. Watching someone fighting something in a let's play who then starts eating to regain health and ends up eating too much, causing slowness and dying from it would put a smile on my lips. When I was thinking up this system I had these principals in mind. Rewards those who eat a veryvarieddiet and does not reward those who don't. Rewards those who eat more complex food items over more basic food items. Works even on servers with different food items without being tailored. It accomplishes these goals by Having diminishingreturns on foods you've eaten recently. Having different categories and nutrition values. Evenly distributes nutrition among registered food items. By reducing the number of categories then the player doesn't need as much variety unless you keep track of more foods in each category and reduce the number of categories each food item contributes to. If you don't havecategories and nutritional value simple foods you don't have the complexity needed to represent steak which is simple and restores a lot of hunger, a carrot which is simple and doesn't restore a lot of hunger, and carrot cake which restores a lot of hunger and is complex. The number of categories also corresponds to the number of different buffs you can give a player.
  18. TFC Community / Server poll

    Most importantly though, it has to be a server that you enjoy running. Don't try to run a server that you think other people may like. If you're not into your own server, then it's never going to last for very long. The HappyDiggers TFC server has welcomed over 15.000 individual players. The current map has over 7000 individual players with a combined play time of around 27500 hours. The only reason we're still here, is that we like the way we run our server. So whatever kind of server you decide to make, be sure it's what you enjoy doing. Players will come. Maybe not tons of them all at once. But they will come to servers that have people behind them that are putting in effort to make it an enjoyable server to play on.

  20. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    Hmm... Sounds like an amazing adventure map! And TFC would work as a great base for it!
  21. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    There was an old channel that has now been more inactive as of late, but it consisted of a man who would actually go down in mines and document them on his camera: Exploring Abandoned Mines and Unusual Places His YouTube channel was what I used for references when I build my own mines (adapted of course to the game mechanics, most of the mines he enters has relatively less timbering (supports) than what a typical TFC mine would have), and I highly recommend if you are interested in mining history to check out his channel! He's explored mines that are100+ years old! Perhaps slightly more modern mines than what TFC would be aiming for, but it works great!

    aw man, that sucks, this server was really cool. Oh well it's your server
  23. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    That does sound like it does a lot for the immersion of the game!
  24. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    Interesting mine construction choices! Mine typically resemble real mines in that I build a portal (entrance) above ground leading to an inclined shaft. From there, I target the vein by ProPick, and mine out a stope (hollowed area) from which I extract the vein. Is it efficient? Not really... Is it cost effective? Perhaps not as much. But it does feel realistic

      What should I do to incorporate its whole source (from github) into eclipse workplace and own project to this ? Import ? And I try to study your code but I didn't find anything different.

      I guess that I need to copy the whole TFC source and just like reload the TFC. Is that right?
