      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. Simple "playability" changes.

    These are interesting suggestions, but, apart from better behaving boats, they are extensions, not "simple changes". 1) Roads and carts are a nice idea for a mod. Add a "road" block that characters and animals move quicker on, then add carts and you have a very nice transportation mod. Ships could also be a part of it. 2) We kind of already have progression in armor and weapons, as higher tier metals give more durable items, with higher damage or armor values. I agree that maybe copper isn't durable enough for items like swords, but then copper chisel is even less realistic and we need chisel early on, unless we give up on the requirement of smooth stones for grinding stuff... It could be reworked, the whole dependency tree of items in TFC, but then it's not such a "simple" change. Maybe the port developers could comment on that, how they see it. 3) Nice idea fora mod too. 4) Nice idea fora mod too.
  2. Simple "playability" changes.

    This might be more time consuming for the developers, and I wonder about availability of the resources you named. Bones can be obtained from animals, but that is not good for servers, as it results in quick animal extinction. Where would lime come from?
  3. Simple "playability" changes.

    I would like to propose a topic that would outline possible changes to original TFC that might be introduced in TFC v1.12.2 (if the delevopers like them, that is ). But not just any changes. Nothing that drastically changes the feeling of original TFC. No changes in the mechanics of the game. Just some adjustments that do not make the game significantly easier or less interesting that it was, but make it a little more "fair" and a bit less dependent on RNG (aka "good starting seed"). It's possible that this topic will end up with only my suggestion in it, but I hope not. So, for starters, my suggestion: Clay is absolutely essential inthe game from the early stages, but it only generates in areas above certain rainfall value. On most servers, "dry" areas are mostly unpopulated, because everybody prefers to build their starter base close to a clay source and most people never end up moving. But I think if players were guaranteed a "starter" amount of clay almost anywhere, it would change their settling behaviours and make more spots on map interesting for them. What I would like to propose would be, that, in addition to the "normal" generation of clay clusters in wet areas, some small amount of clay (like 1 to 5 blocks) had a chance to generate next to fresh water blocks. There are lakes in dry areas and that would ensure that sooner or later a player would find some clay next to them and be able to craft a few basics (a jug, a couple of vessels, molds for basic tools). That would help in settling down. Larger amount of clay could then be mined later farther away from home, not unlike other resources (ores), for which we eventually venture outanyway.
  4. Submit Questions for FAQ

    (off the top of my head, might add more later) Will this version be more compatible with other mods (non TFC specific mods) in terms of world generation (water especially)? I heard you say that you won't port the food system as it was in 1.7.10 TFC. What will be changed? I'm a mod author for1.7.10 TFC. When will be a good time for me to start thinking about porting my mod to 1.12.2 TFC? I know of a bug existing still in1.7.10 TFC. Should I report it now, so you can correct it while porting?
  5. WIP [TFC-0.79.29] TerraFirmaProgressivePack

    If you change it to 100, it will behave like "regular" TFC server. The time DOES run, but very slowlywhen nobody is on the server. 0 is not the default, the author of this modpack changed this setting.
  6. TFC1 1.12+ port

    Not really. In Ark, if you have 2 stacks of the same food, let's say one in your inventory, other in your dino's inventory, they have different timers (for example: your stack is at the point when next item will rot in a few seconds, dino's stack has a few minutes to rot still), you could "refresh" your food by joining the stacks in correct way, because the timer of the "bottom" stack would always prevail. In TFC percent decay system, when you join decayed and non-decayed food, the resulting stack gets some kind of average. This (average)can be done in numbered stacks too and I hope that's how it will be done. I was just pointing out that Ark is not the best example to follow in many aspects, not only food behaviour. The game is enjoyable, not two words about it, but even more full of bugs than half of the minecraft mods out there
  7. WIP [TFC-0.79.29] TerraFirmaProgressivePack

    Also, another question: why is the advanced miner removed? Just for balance or for any technical reasons?
  8. WIP [TFC-0.79.29] TerraFirmaProgressivePack

    Well, I tried, in single creative. I set up an induction furnace and a crusher. I get the same amount of nuggets in furnace no matter the values of ores, so when I switch to 25/50/75, I actually get LESS product for ore value. Same with crusher. So my gain is only when I use metal natively in TFC and I can't really see how I could loop production... Remember, I don't change the default value of native nuggets (10), just of the ores dug out of rock.
  9. WIP [TFC-0.79.29] TerraFirmaProgressivePack

    Wow, with Traincraft I might be able to convince hubby to play with me Question - does your modpack rely much on default ore values (15/25/35 for poor/normal/rich)? I would like to change to TFnC defaults (25/50/75).
  10. Can't Load or create worlds or join any servers.

    It's not TFC problem, it's Minecraft problem, looking at your crash log. From what I've found on the net, this could happen if you installed older version of MC over previously played later version. Try removing (or copying to some other place) your .minecraft folder and installing it again from scratch. Or use ATLauncher and add pack ("AddPack" button) with code "Terrafirmacraft". You will be able to install TFC and any add-ons you wish - or no add-ons if you want pure TFC - and will have clean install with every instance, as ATLauncher keeps them in separate folders.
  11. TFC1 1.12+ port

    I suggest patience. From what I've read about the changes, some features of TFC will be extremely hard (or even impossible) to port. Give it some time.
  12. [0.79.29] For desert lovers

    Since it's hard to find a desert starting seed in TFC and I accidentaly stumbled on one today, I thought I'd post it here: -289749588618088428 Starting layer is slate, but going north-north-west one can find dolomite, chalk and limestone, all of that in desert biome.
  13. Good luck with your modpack!
