      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. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    That's certainly the smart way to do it. Unfortunately, we're a bit too far into it now to do it for this playthrough. I'm not too keen on sudden restarts after the hours that have been invested. But definitely if I'm ever starting a game again, I'll make sure all the config is decided ahead of time haha. Thanks for the help, all. I imagine I'll just delete and respawn any animals we have problems with, from now on.
  2. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    Yes, I switched the year length from 96 days to 360 days a couple days after server start. Sounds like that's the problem. Will any thusly affected animals eventually grow up - say, after 12 months for the sheep, since that's its usual juvenile period - or are their internal clocks too messed up that they'll be stuck in a weird perpetual childhood thing, and I should just replace any animals I see affected like that?
  3. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    An update: I decided to try spawning sheep in and using spawned in shears and stuff to see if my knife was broken or my sheep was broken or something. I spawned in a new TFC sheep, fed it a couple times, and... well it worked, I was able to shear the new sheep. So I guess I somehow found a broken sheep. The only visible difference between the two was that the familiarity icon for the broken sheep I found was unhelpfully mostly hidden inside of the sheep. With the one I spawned in, it was hovering far above him. Dunno if any of that means anything.
  4. Ah, huh, weird. Well, I had been trying with chipped ones. Because of your comment I decided to try with the couple other-quality ones I had. It works for both flawed and flawless... but not chipped, for me. Thanks, haha.
  5. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    I uh, am the server admin.
  6. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    I know; it doesn't.
  7. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    If it had been successful, that would have been the fourth or so time I fed them. When I would shift and look at the sheep (who is the one I'd actually been trying to familiarize) the heart was barely filled, not even to the point of the white border, so they're not maxed out. However, (and I probably should have mentioned this), this is on a server. When I just got back on, it looks like the familiarity meter has increased significantly since previously, and I can feed them now, so maybe the server was just lagging somehow and those feedings still registered. However, when I first found the sheep, I originally could use a knife on the unfamiliarized sheep and it would tell me that the animal wouldn't let me do that. But by the time I got it back to base and was feeding it, right click with a knife had no effect, like feeding also ended up. Now that feeding is working, shearing is still doing nothing. Maybe I'm just missing something on how shearing works, though.
  8. [Solved] Can't feed animals

    So this is odd, it was working about half an hour ago but now isn't. I have a pig and a sheep, and barley grain. I go and shift right-click with the grain. Before, it would feed them 5oz and then afterwards, further tries would be greeted with the "the animal won't let you do that" message. But now, neither of these things happen. Shift right-clicking will just make me start eating the grain. When I try while already full so I can't eat it, just nothing happens - no feeding, no "can't do that" message. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. I can't seem to get the alloy calculator recipe to work. Has it been changed? (And yes, it's enabled in the config file)
  10. [Solved] Anvil hammer laying down/floating?

    Haha. So simple. Thanks!
  11. Bit of an odd thing going on here. On my laptop, the hammer which is in its slot in the anvil gui is visible lying flat on the anvil, static. On my desktop, it floats above the anvil, facing the player, and rotates as you move around it. Anyone know why there's a difference?
  12. 360 day year config - other values?

    Thank you for the response. I dunno why I mentioned decay, I'm pretty sure it currently is scaled fairly realistically and it wouldn't make any sense to increase or decrease it, regardless of year length. I've looked through the rest of the config options and it looks like that covers all of the time-related options. Sapling growth being the only one not scaled, I've just increased that to 2 so there's a bit of an increase. Thanks very much!
  13. 360 day year config - other values?

    Hellooo. So my friends and I are doing a TFcraft server. We set the year length to 360 days instead of the default 96. But I wasn't sure if we should be correspondingly increasing other values to match. Should I also change the crop growth multiplier to 4, and the same for decay, and so on? I assume none of these are auto-scaled to the year length. What other things ought I to change? Thanks!
