      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. Back from the dead.  Had a computer failure years ago and FINALLY got enough money to get a new computer.

  2. Singleplayer server problems

    It's not optifine - I hadn't played in ages though myself since my computer's been down but recently had some minor issues but I solved them because it was just a silly mod installation mistake since things have changed since I last had MC installed. It only took me 10 minutes to do a little research on the matter and I was up and running in no time. I have optifine and smart moving installed as well and the game runs without issues. So please, like waveshaper said, crash logs. Can't debug things based on word of mouth.
  3. Computer specs.

    Make sure it has dedicated GFX card. I play on a laptop w/o one so I can't record games or anything unless it's built into the game itself (and this laptop is over 4 years old too, if not more) so, even with optifine, I only get about 30-50fps on a good day. As soon as I start doing serious working of blocks on the surface my fps drops. So yeah, GFX card is a must. (I'm still amazed this computer can even run Portal 2 and get a consistent 30-40fps in co-op)
  4. The TFC Wiki and Minerals/Ores

    Yeah, from my point of view, letting people know where ores spawn isn't going to disrupt the way the game is played. It just gives you some knowledge on where to start looking for what you want to find
  5. Combat Overhaul cont. (2/3)

    I think I spoke too soon. Plus I haven't played D&D in over 15 years. Been a few days.
  6. The TFC Wiki and Minerals/Ores

    Maybe because they hadn't noticed and didn't delete those pages (if they want to). They don't have time to work on the mod AND monitor the wiki.
  7. Ore Tiers

    This is getting ridiculous and unrelated to the ore now. Bioxx himself has said, this is NOT to become a numbers game. It's final, and not going to be changed. No spoilers. We're not posting that information and if it gets posted, it gets removed. If you want numbers, you can get them yourself. There's a reason there is a small durability loss for imperfect smithing, it's to show you didn't get it perfect. So try and do better. Just handing out the exact method to make perfect tools removes the learning. As for the wiki, I think it's to be treated as the game's instruction manual (albeit incomplete and not 100% accurate due to its nature). It's a guide, not a walkthrough. The information that (to me) seems reasonable would be, as in the anvil, the top button moves it a little, and it moves further with the lower buttons, increasing with each motion. A number such as 1, 2, 3, or 4 would be a no-no.
  8. Are you talking about the sprite for the dropped gems? I was actually thinking about doing exactly what you're talking about months ago. I just never got around to it as I've been incredibly busy. (So busy that I've been behind TONS of artwork on agriculture - sorry guys) P.S. - just got my repaired tablet from Wacom so I'm back in business again!
  9. Combat Overhaul cont. (2/3)

    This thread has successfully rolled a critical fail check
  10. Period Appropriate Transport + Logistics

    Maybe use llamas (too)?
  11. Additional Chisel Functions

    Yeah. I think it'd be cool to see it but I'm completely indifferent on whether or not it actually gets added lol.
  12. Additional Chisel Functions

    It were me. I are nay sayer:Just for shits n giggles. There are so many Yes votes that a single no vote isn't going to affect it.
  13. Additional Chisel Functions

    Me, just to add flavor. I actually would like to see it
  14. Larger Biomes - Realistic Biome Transition

    By "terrane" you mean terrain right? And point 2 I think is something Dunk is planning on working on since I believe he recently expressed an interest in creating biomes in that fashion. Also, swamps don't just form at sea level. A swamp is an area of land that retains water very well (either permanently or temporarily). Elevation isn't a requirement. You could have a swamp that's at a higher altitude and actually freezes over. Edit: Oh and temperature isn't purely elevation related. Some deserts in the world drop below freezing at night. Also I believe most minerals in TFC are already rock-type-restricted in generation (unless I totally missed an update and that got changed).
