      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. It was nice to come back after so long and still have everything in place. Good to see people on a lot too. I've decided to build a new road from the area I live SW of spawn back to spawn, since crossing the ocean in winter is such a pain. It'll take a while, but the area around me is mostly unsettled so it'll give new towns another option.
  2. [Solved] Serios frame rate drops

    Try turning off VSync, I've had issues before that were solved by that. Another thing to try is running a server on the same machine, then connecting to that in multiplayer mode (use 127.0.0.1 as the address). I used to do that with my old computer which helped a lot.
  3. Hang gliders!

    Man, that would be really fun to just be able to jump off the top of one of the huge mountains you see in TFC and glide down.
  4. Open Air Latrine Design

    This is pretty much how I start every game too (I also only do hardcore for single player worlds). I use thatch for an entry door since it's easily broken by hand to get back in. Also, a torch in the center keeps the 7x7 area lit where mobs won't spawn.
  5. Staying with 1.6.4 discussion

    I'd say you should just stay on 1.6.4 unless you really need something that 1.7 has (performance, the translation stuff, whatever). Since this is a total conversion mod, upgrading is always going to cause a lot of work on bug fixing and undoing vanilla changes. I'd rather see effort put into new gameplay and features. MC 1.8 is right around the corner and then you're going to have to do this all again if you keep trying to stay up to date. Like ___Frank said, you don't want to be constantly playing catch up and not working on new features. At least wait until Mojang stops rewriting all the code and then port to that version, whatever it may be.
  6. [Solved] HELP!

    Do you still have to break them to pick them up? Do you have graphics set to fast? I remember reading that they only look flat on the ground with fancy graphics. Edit: Simulpost...
  7. The images don't show up, try using imgur.com to post them or use the attachment feature of these forums. The server is up all the time, you can go to the tfc.happydiggers.net website and see the map with people playing. Must be a connection problem on your end. Make sure you're putting the port in the address field, like: "tfc.happydiggers.net:4000"
  8. Well from that same post I quoted, Bioxx says FoodDecayRate shouldn't be less than 1. Maybe go back to the defaults since 78.12 changed the way it works, and reassess from there.
  9. Volunteering.

    The code is on github, you can clone it and submit pull requests. People do it all the time. I'm actually not sure how they feel about posting the actual link to the code here, though. So your first test is to find it
  10. You might want to re-download and install 78.12 because of this fix to food decay.Right now the decay on the server is wacky, where in hot climates food decays really fast and in cold ones it actually removes decay.
  11. Bugs report: Decay going crazy,egg,fences

    There was a "ghost fix" in 78.12 for decay (there's a newer version of 78.12), so try downloading it again if that's the version you're running. http://terrafirmacraft.com/f/topic/5566-decay-not-working-when-changing-fooddecaymultiplier-in-new-config-7812/#entry78890
  12. Damage Types

    I think it's fine that skeletons are basically immune to piercing damage. It's believable and provides for interesting gameplay that promotes using different weapons. Not having any kind of ranged weapon to deal with them is a valid point though, or some way to get close without taking damage. A shield would be nice. And if that dumb vanilla mechanic of shooting faster the closer you get is still there, that needs to go as well.
  13. Sorry I was responding to the part about possibly adding a plugin to automatically replant saplings. Planting some of the missing tree types would be nice. Maybe do it in some randomly chosen locations instead of at spawn so someone would have to get lucky and find them. Sort of makes it fair and similar to how lucky people find nickel or graphite while others don't.
  14. I'm not really a math guy, I'm just a programmer, so anything I say can be wrong. Usually the math guys just give me a formula to implement. But I think the difference is what happens when "mult" is less than 1. In the currently implemented formula you end up with less decay than when you started, which shouldn't happen. I don't know if my proposed solution will work or not but I think it might.
  15. I don't think you should do anything about people not replanting trees. Deforestation is part of TFC.
