      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. I'm sorry for making this topic... but graphite.

    So I'm running around in schist, hopelessly propicking at ground, just running around like a lunatic, no symmetry no nothing. I was obviously giving up at that point when suddenly....... "Pathetically insignificant, barely describable as traces of graphite found, now you can stop whining you big baby" popped up right in my face on the screen. Words can not describe my UTTER EXCITEMENT!!!!! :DA:SD:AS:{DLAFKDAKLHKDSAHG Thank you so much for the tips. If not for them I would be digging underground like a moron.
  2. I'm sorry for making this topic... but graphite.

    Thanks for all the amazing tips. Ironically, I already found garnierite since the second rock type on my island is gabbro, and I found lots of it. I have a few questions though. In the config files I saw that graphite only spawns below Y:128 (Or maybe I am getting something wrong), so is it possible that I will find some exposed graphite in ravines or mountain sides? Thats why I was mining underground rather than running around and propicking. God wish it was as easy to find graphite as it is to find kaolinite.
  3. ------------------------------useless txt VVV ----------------------------------------------------- Okay, so I was whining previously about finding rock salt, and how it was driving me insane. But in reality I wasn't looking good enough for it, cause just about 10k blocks of sailing and I have finally found it (Yay). But the thing is with rock salt, the process is pretty simple. You're guaranteed that at some point you'll hit the rock salt island while sailing. But then, just as I was starting to have a blast playing with thismod, having a great time and everything, BOOM I realized I need graphite. ----------------------------- useless txt ^^^ ------------------------------------------------------ I am currently on an island where marble is the surface rock type. From dozens and dozens of searching for any bit of info I could dig up on graphite, apparently it spawns between Y: 5 - 128 and is most occurring between Y: 115 - 128. I have mined 50 blocks in every direction at that level, even explored a cave that I found, spent 4 pro picks and 2 bronze picks. I couldn't find any graphite at all, though tons of tetra and even more gold. All I'm asking for is any suggestions on how to find it? I see multiple youtubers finding graphite without a hassle and other players saying it's no rarer than any other ore. I have searched 4 different ravines and oh so many mountains. I feel like I'm just either doing something wrong or I'm just so unlucky. What is the best strategy, how do you know when you should stop looking for it here and look elsewhere? How do you not lose your minds when you are searching for graphite?
  4. [0.2.4] TFC2 Prerelease

    Personally, I'm going to miss TFC food. I think it was pretty iconic, and the realistic farming was fun too.
  5. Help Finding Gabbro

    There isn't any special tricks to finding any of the stone types as far as I know. I had to travel 13000 blocks in 2 directions until I could finally find rock salt. One thing that is really annoying to me in TFC is how hard it is to find certain materials. I understand the game is about exploration, but 10k long oceans is not exploration, it's death by boredom. However I can suggest one thing. If you're sailing by a boat, change the "walk forward" button to spacebar and place something heavy on it, so it will "automatically" sail for you, though it is dangerous because if you smash into land, your boat will break and you might end up drowning, so make sure to check every 5 minutes or so.
  6. Finding rock salt is driving me insane...

    Ah, thanks so much. Sorry for bothering you with so many questions. Seems strange to me why salt is so rare when it's not even that valuable.
  7. Finding rock salt is driving me insane...

    Thanks again. About the wiki page, I'm sorry I might be blind but are you sure it's there? I couldn't find the info anywhere, only the categories.
  8. Finding rock salt is driving me insane...

    Thank you for your suggestion! Can I ask where you got that information? I can't find it anywhere and I was wondering what are the odds that Limestone will be present on an island?
  9. Finding rock salt is driving me insane...

    I developed a strange OCD and I HAVE TO FIND rock salt before winter comes. Every single world I start, I quit because I can't find the rock salt. It takes me on average 3 hours of sailing and finding nothing but useless chert until I decide to quit. Why is something so simple so incredibly near-impossible to find? Any tips? Although at this point I'm asking out of being desperate, I know that it's not uncommon to travel a lot to find the specific rock type.
  10. [0.2.4] TFC2 Prerelease

    I was wondering, is it confirmed that planks and chisels wont be implemented in TFC2? I know it's a pain in the butt to work with them, as Bioxx earlier mentioned, but I just love that feature so much in TFC1.
  11. [0.2.4] TFC2 Prerelease

    It's okay. Take your time with this mod. I really appreciate that TFC2 is actually going to be a thing. I thought it was abandoned. Really hyped for a stable release
  12. [0.2.4] TFC2 Prerelease

    Do you mean the seed and cords of the overworld? If so, here they are again. Seed: -3824117009429758600 Cords (Where I found the portal): X 2760 ; Y 83 ; Z -7186 Or do you mean cords of where I get teleported (Which looks like void) Cords: X 345 ; Y (Not sure, I keep falling) ; Z -899 Sorry if I'm getting something wrong, I'm very inexperiencedin this.
  13. [0.2.4] TFC2 Prerelease

    Not sure what this is called, got a pretty cool combination. Thought I'd share it. EDIT: Also, portals don't seem to work for me, just die in void. Seed: -3824117009429758600 Location (Roughly):X 2760 ; Y 83 ; Z -7186 Mods: Just enough items; Voxel Minimap; Liteloader
  14. Best immersion mods?

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me what is the best transport mod to go along with TFC? I am using Archimedes' Ships, spent 2 hours yesterday trying to find Limestone, no luck Also, I am looking for some survival immersion mods, such as: Temperature management (Too hot, too cold etc) Some visual mods that make TFC nature even more beautiful. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
  15. Fatigue

    Eh, I really didn't think that through... I guess it wouldn't really work out in multiplayer. Thanks for constructive criticism though! Yeah, no need to repeat that to me several times, I think I already agreed with you (and with Cakey) that this as a default mechanic is a bad idea . But in my opinion, having it as an option would be pretty cool, because I am sure there are at least few people who want this mechanic present. Although now that I think about it, they really shouldn't bother developing that just because of few people (Or even only one, idk) . But yeah, thanks for arguments (Also thanks for previous posts, got some info from Kitty's posts)
