      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."

  1. Neither. There are multiple reasons, e.g.: Pirate accounts are illegal in general, therefore server would be at risk of being punished for supporting them. The servers use various plugins for ensuring safety of players and general order. These plugins rely on official data from Mojang. In average players with pirated accounts bring more trouble for staff, not following rules, etc. E.g. they feel they don't have much to loose if banned. P.S. Oh, you are Brazilian? Man, I have been trying to buy mate (jerba) tea here in Russia for few months - no luck. It was popular few years ago, but now quite rare. How lucky you are, being in one of the countries where it did originate from and where it is abundant I am drooling over all modern types of the jerba mate in online shops. Some day will find a way to buy there, I am not that good with international shopping
  2. Adding the direct link to the HappyDiggers forum with the ban details and proofs: here. Wow, it was 1.5 years ago ...
  3. TFC in Harry Harrison's "Stonehenge"

    Found another nice quotation about metallurgy from a book (in addition to Jules Verne's one). This time - from Harry Harrison's "Stonehenge", which is actually about Greek and Atlantis warriors fighting over a tin mine to be able to produce bronze. " It was a war over a resource as precious as the one that names our own Petrochemical Age. Not oil, but tin. Without tin, there could have been no Bronze Age. For at the very dawn of metallurgy it was evident that copper alone was too soft to make durable tools and weapons. Tin was essential, but almost impossible to find. Yet when combined at a proportion of one to nine, it transforms the abundant, more malleable copper into hardened bronze. Too much tin, and the bronze is too brittle, like the raw hardening agent itself; too little, and the bronze is too soft, like the copper it melds with. But it is scarce; the more so for the ancients, who didn't dig deeply for it as we do, but who searched for nodules of cassiterite in naturally open tin streams. There are none of those nut-like nodules of tin oxide left anymore, the surface of the earth having been picked clean a long time ago. "
  4. Well, it's like in real life, quite believable for ancient times with all the hygiena issues, right? A more serious answer will follow soon
  5. There are several servers, so both nearly-vanilla TerraFirmaCraft server and TechNodeFirmaCraft server exist. If you want to play on TerraFirnaCraft server, you need only Terrafirmacraft mod. And some additional client-side mods are allowed. If you want to play on TechNodeFrimaCraft server, you will need the TNFC modpack in AT launcher and login to a separate TNFC server. Please note that TNFC is whitelisted for community donors only. Some more information on HappyDigger's site, Servers tab:

  7. [Solved] cart with chest?

    Where have you found your quote from the Wiki ? Search doesn't show that. The only search result is the page which states that the chest minecarts are disabled ("Disabled Recipes").

    Extremely delicious! In addition to beauty - usage of space including 3D, detailing, common style unity ... ahhh.
  11. Tips on fighting bears?

    I have met bears on plains only atm. Bow is the best. It takes about 3 full-drawn shots to kill a bear. They are weak to piercing damage. Sometimes when they get a shot, they stop their charge, this may slightly help in the forest - when hear a bear, walk with drawn bow, shoot and run away. Also cutting the blocking trees may help. Hi-tier knife could probably help, but I don't know if color steel knife is better than sword against bears - sword has higher base damage, but knife is piercing. Anyway with melee fight bear will win. This last mentioned update of their speed and hostility is awesome. Formerly when I met bears, there was the boring problem to kill all 60+ of them. I couldn't just leave their precious hides, had to get them all, but they were peaceful like cows. Now even with bow and on plains it is a thrilling gamble.
  12. How did you find out about TFC?

    o_O I am really confused. Where you guys see any similarity between Dwarf Fortress and TFC? Yes, mining, caves ... but it is just a setting, the games are completely different. No?Games like Gnomoria, Towns, StoneHearth, Craft The World, RimWorld are exactly "simplified DF" with good graphics, 3D or 2D. Gnomoria is already well-playable, others more or less ...
