      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. TIL: These can spawn in TFC too

    Wow, that's a really weird-looking pig-- waaaaaait a minute OH WOW I think that's the first time I've seen a pink sheep in TFC. Dang!
  2. TFC Myths

    I believe what matters is having your thirst bar depleted while the temperature where you're standing is above either 30 C or 35 C. I think I saw someone report that standing next to a wall (no roof) lowers the temperature somewhat and prevents dehydration damage, probably faking being in shadow if this is a real thing that happens. I know I've run (well, walked) around plenty with a depleted thirst bar and not taken damage, but I almost always play on seeds that drop me north enough that summer rarely gets up to 30. Edit: I tested, it's definitely when thirst is depleted and temperature where you are is above at /least/ 32.88, and it doesn't matter if there's a block above your head but light level plays a big role in how hot things are. Especially at the equator. 12 degree difference between full sunlight and full darkness, wow.
  3. Tips on fighting bears?

    Echoing the chorus of "use a bow" and "get in the water". If I can, I snipe it from a distance or give it a really wide berth. If I can't, I flee at top sprint-jumpy speed and hope to either get far enough away to make it lose interest or lure it into water, where I can either get away or safely snipe it while it flounders. If I don't have a bow yet, bears are on the Do Not Approach Under Any Circumstances list until I do.
  4. Livestock escaping?

    I do livestock pits or pens with solid block walls, usually backed by a cliff at least 3 blocks tall.
  5. Efficient tree farms

    And that's why douglas firs are awesome on multiple levels, because they're both high-yield and aesthetically pleasing.
  6. Efficient tree farms

    Leaves count as blocks trees won't/can't replace, then?
  7. Efficient tree farms

    I've noticed that sometimes saplings restart their timer instead of growing, even if they have a free path to the sky.
  8. Death command block

    ... Oh dear, you're right. How the heck did that happen? Well, it's fixed now.
  9. Death command block

    I use OpenGrave, which is nothing but a grave that gives off light to help you find it. I think the Gravestone Mod eats items you're wearing on your back when you die, though I'm not sure of that.
  10. [Solved] Fruit tree growth

    I plant my fruit trees with a five block space, and once they grow to full trunk height I usually build a grid of one-high lines of dirt in the clear spaces and walk along those to nab the fruit. I've never been able to aim through the branches reliably.
  11. On long trips away from home and restricting oneself to overland travel: Why? You have copper, so presumably also a saw, so presumably also lumber and planks. 1.7 boats are fragile and glitchy, yeah, but with appropriate wrangling they're not completely impossible. Kittychanley recommended to me that I tap W instead of holding it, which does seem to help with client-server desync somehow although it's not so good on my fingers. I also learned totally by accident that you can shoot your boat out from under yourself with a bow, which helps with the issue of the boat flying off and crashing into the shore as soon as you get out. I do recommend logging out and back in before that, though, because if the boat's desynced the item will drop at the boat's real location and that could be a fair bit offshore. Even without that bow trick, which is probably a bug, as long as you come to a complete stop before exiting the vehicle it usually doesn't go running off. I haven't done this particular thing in TFC yet, but in the past I've also created little boat catchment areas with bottom slabs, and you can sail boats right onto those and then get out with the boats trapped. If you're worried about missing a layer change due to it happening underwater, and you're playing in single player, you could also open your world to LAN with cheats enabled, activate debug mode with "/debugmode", and then that'll tell you all three stone layers under your feet. It also messes with how forges heat up and use fuel, and activates the ability to add time to the calendar, so use it with caution, but it's useful.
  12. Aha. That makes a lot of sense. Thanks!
  13. How long do mature wild crops stay in the ground before they die of old age? I've checked on wild crops pretty much daily in my current world so I could definitely catch them before they die, but I'd like to know how long I actually have.
  14. Definitely in the E inventory. Also, as I related in IRC, everything's gone back to expected behavior. This was after I closed and reopened Minecraft.
  15. With Inventory Tweaks 1.58 and TFC 79.24, the slot mapping actually appears to be what the InvTweaks rules file says it is. When I blocked C4-C9, for instance, the last six slots in my non-hotbar inventory didn't sort, while the first six did. Has anything changed with regards to how TFC interacts with Inventory Tweaks on the TFC end? Also, does anyone have a InvTweaks item tree for TFC items? I'm making one myself right now and it's eye-crossingly tedious, so if someone's already done the work I would quite like to take advantage of it.
