      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. Destroy the picture above you

    Only one rule: You have to destroy the picture above you. For example: I post a cat. You have to post something that "destroys" the cat, like a dogcatcher or a barrel of water. The next person has then to destroy your picture.
  2. TFC Community Server [OFFLINE]

    I'd really liket o join, but I always get kicked because of a Internal exception: java.net.Socket.TimeoutException: Read time out Anyway to fix this?
  3. Pottery

    1. The oven would be just a hole in a stonewall with a burning forge beneath it. If new blocks were to be added the maximum would be two. One potter's "wheel" block and maybe a grid to put between the forge and the cooking pottery. 2. Since you'd put the raw pieces into your oven there won't be a GUI. It's the same as with charcoal, just wait till it's ready and collect it. 3. There are lots of alternatives like wooden crafts, but if you happen to have an insane amount of clay, why not use it to craft some ceramic bowls, ceramic cauldrons or vases. Maybe some pottery crafts would be more suitable for containing certain goods like cereals. One of the main focuses would still be the making of bricks. To make them, one had to form clay into a brick shape (just put one clay in your crafting slot and take out your raw brick). Craft four of them together to get a raw brick block and just put this for12-18 hours in your pottery oven. When done, you just have to pick the block up and do whatever you want with it, like crafting a chimney block for your forge by putting 3 brick blocks vertical in your crafting grid to get 3 chimney blocks, wich count as an open path to the sky. Or make a brick roof for your house. About the villagers: I didn't konw Bioxx neutralized them, but as I read there are plans for Beta3 about adding money and politics. I also think that NPC's won't be added, but if just a trader NPC gets added, pottery (and maybe gems?) would get a use. Stuff like cauldrons would be more useful if mechanics like tanning were implemented. But that's just leading to other topics... http://s1.directupload.net/file/d/3065/idenzg4h_png.htm http://s14.directupload.net/file/d/3065/us486iuk_png.htm Two pictures of a test oven. The door is mainly for decoration purpose. Another l(much easier) ayout could be just like the standard charcoal pit. Replacing the logpiles with raw brick blocks or pottery and the firepit with a forge. The whole thing covered in cobblestone and there you go.
  4. Pottery

    The quality thing would be more useful in terms of trading with Villagers. So just like in DF, an exceptional ceramic-cauldron with flawless diamonds is WAY more valuable than a simple bowl decorated with some chipped garnets.
  5. Pottery

    Thanks for the font tip! And yeah, why not Dwarf Fortress style!? xTatteredx / +Fine+ and so on.
  6. Pottery

    So, as I learned from this mod clay is very important. But why not make it a bit more useful. Making bottles (Amphorae?) for water or potions, cauldrons for water storage (If you don't happen to have any water near you and always want a good supply), containers for food if rotting would be added or just for decoration (like the new added flower pots in Minecraft 1.4). Maybe the quality of ceramic molds would also increase if one did it in a proper potter oven instead of over a campfire or forge (So you can use it maybe 3-5 times) This could be a possible layout for an oven: # = Stone / = Air ^ = Forge ###### ##### #////////# ##### ###### ##### ##^////// ##//## (Sideview) (Front View) This could also make acquiring bricks a bit more hard, so you actually have to do something before building your nice brick chimney.
  7. b60 Unable to build a Forge

    So I was playing lately and wanted to build a forge. But when I tried to light the charcoal in the forgepit the game crashed and showed the "Shutting down internal Server" Window. Please correct me if this bug is only client and not mod based.
