      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. Holes in the Ground & Water

    Would like to add a question here: is there any way to prevent underground caves at all? I think they are too big in TFC; whereever you dig down, you hit this underground cave world. Makes me feel I live on a sponge.
  2. How many chores maximum you've ever had in TFC?

    Sometimes I decide to just let my fruit spoil on the trees or I ignore the milk and sheep. Usually I got plenty of those resources and will not waste my time only to collect another 160 oz of cheese just to let this final product spoil. I barely keep enough stuff on stock to return from a long trip or building session and find something to eat. Milk and meat are always available, grain (->bread) lasts very long. Anyway, time management is important in TFC and I often do not find onough time to build the structures I would like to. Developers have stated more than once that TFC was balanced for multi-player - and thus tis little "chore" as single player. Have fun!
  3. 0.79.29 Released

    Thank you for bringing the baby sheep color. Really love that tweak!
  4. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    Minor request: The recipe for the flower pot is missing in the pottery page. I finally found it in the update news somewhere more or less randomly after I knew from a Let's Play that flower pots are possible.
  5. Tree Growth

    Because every tree that is not fully grown needs to (permanently) check if it can grow any further.
  6. Tree Growth

    I like the idea of different growth stages for trees. I have no clue of coding but I think the grown tree does not contain any additional information like the sampling does. What part of the tree is the one that matters? The lowest block? Collecting and farming various trees is a big part of the fun of TFC for me. It's nice to collect saplings from exotic trees and grow them on your own. This is what mankind does in botanical gardens for very long time. Of course, a giant cedar (thuja plicata) in a botanical garden in western europe will never grow like it will in it's natural habitat, but many other trees do. I think the current kind of unlimited tree growth based on climate is believable.
  7. Breeding colored sheep

    No specific reason, but just a collector's thing. That brown male sheep I found is quite rare. It would be nice to breed some more and have them fully familiarized even though there is no real benefits. That's Minecraft, isn't it?
  8. Breeding colored sheep

    Hi guys! Has anyone of you ever had success breeding coloured sheep? I have not. Maybe I have just been unlucky? But watching some YT videos, I never saw a coloured baby sheep. In my recent game I have found a brown male and a black female, just ready to breed. The brown male is new but with the black female I only got white baby sheep. Anyway, they are quite small. It would be nice to know if I have a chance to ever have a full familiarized coloured sheep by animal husbandry. Search function and wiki was not helpful at this matter. I think I included all useful keywords in this post for future searches.
  9. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    Quick and competent als always. Thank you very much!
  10. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    I am desperately seaching for a donkey in my world. I wanted to check which climate they spawn in but could not find any information regarding this in the wiki or the forums using the search function in both. Might be an easy addon to the "climate" page if the wiki. Do they share the climate conditions of horses?
  11. Metal Tiers

    I really love that ore vein. Time for some big scale mining! As as single player I know TFC is not meant to be balanced for me. However, I love the current system of metal tier progression with an capped end. To be more constructive in regard to the "more variation / procedural tier", I would like to suggest a steel alloy system instead of a procedurally generated alloy: 1. Simple pure iron steel is the "final" tier. 2. Relative small nuances are achieved by steel alloys using some limited (3?) parameters Steel parameters could be believable class names like "brittleness", "toughness" and "..." - sorry as English is not my first language, I can't judge the correct vocabularies for those attributes Those three parameters achieve before mentioned tiered armor vs weapon system in a "Rock, Paper, Scissors" manner. The parameters could depend on alloy ingredients and the temperature of the production process, including some unobtainable secret information. That way it is not possible to produce a steel with set target values for the parameters right away. Experience with try and error comes into play. And as a single player, I could still stick with plain steel without any big loss. A complete other use of alloys is creative colouring of buildings: Useless alloys still make up great decorative furnitures, statues and more...
  12. Questions Regarding the New Block Physics Demo

    This new mechanic reminds me a lot to 7 days to die (7d2d). That said, 7d2d structural integrity showed some weird behaviour when it comes to structural load. What works fine in simplified examples may appear weird when used in complex buildings with mixed materials. Structural integrity is a highly discussed "feature" / "bug" in 7d2d. I like the current attempt a lot: "My goal is to give the player simple rules to follow where they have to think just a bit more when building" - thumbs up!
  13. Nice piece of inventory for my kitchen. Well done. I use the shift-click-cut to get a lot of pieces with halved weight and then I add up as much as i need to get as close as possible. But this piece looks great.
  14. Stone Colors - Color of marble changed?

    I will have a look around today. Time for an extensiveboat trip
  15. Stone Colors - Color of marble changed?

    Thanks for the quick reply. It's propably just my memories. I never used a texture pack for TFC.
