      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."

    Okay, consider this a bug report for fixing the wiki then.

  3. Preface: I did search the forums. There are a number of posts that are related to this topic, but they are all very old and not exactly the same thing as this, so I made a new thread to prevent necro and spamming general hand-wavy suggestion threads. Currently Bones have two uses (correct me if I'm wrong): Stick replacement for stone tools and ground into Bone Meal as a dye. Considering that Bones drop a lot when butchering animals and that bones were historically very useful parts of animals (for food, tools, fertilizer, animal feed, jewelry, the list goes on), I think Bones deserve more functionality in TFC. Possible uses: As fertilizerBone Meal directly as fertilizer, perhaps less efficient than Sylvite for balance.Make Sylvite grind into Sylvite Powder, and add recipe for Sylvite Powder + Bone Meal = Fertilizer.As livestock feedBone Meal as alternative livestock feed.Bone Meal accelerates livestock growth.Bone Meal increases livestock size for butchering.As foodBones used to make Broth, which can then be used to make Soup or Stew, as another alternative to prepared food alongside Salads and Sandwiches.Cooked or processed into Bone Marrow as a food. Very small amounts per bone, provides Protein.As fuel?Alternative fuel for firepits that burns at lower temperature. (There is evidence of bones being used like this in places where firewood is scarce. There needs to be roughly equal proportion of bones and firewood.)As bone charhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bone_charBone char can be used as black dye.Bone char added as requirement to process sugar.As tools/weaponsAs arrowheadBones used as an alternative or replacing rocks in the recipe for Arrows, making arrows either more or less expensive.Bones used to make Bone Tipped Arrows, does more damage than regular Arrows. (For balance, perhaps make Bone Arrows do the current amount of arrow damage and make regular arrows do less damage.)Bone as alternative to Stone for making tool heads.

  5. [Solved] Pit kiln failure

    Kitty, is it necessary to check for fire above the pit kiln? In what situation would the timer run out and there not be fire above the pit kiln and we don't want it to complete? Edit: Talking about your bugfix. I think that commit would fix the bug, but do we need the check in the first place?
  6. [Solved] Pit kiln failure

    I've attached a picture of a bugged pit kiln, although you probably don't need it at this point. It seems to keep ticking. I just tried cheating in a fire block with NEI and placing it on the bugged pit kiln. Indeed, the pit kiln then completes successfully.
  7. [Solved] Pit kiln failure

    Sorry, I already have it installed and forgot to list it. It says something like 0 hours remaining (0.0%) pointing at the top of the lumber stack of the pit kiln, if I remember correctly. I'm not sure how reproducible it is, I'll try to post more information if I can manage to reproduce it.

  9. Just A Little Archery Tweak.

    Thanks for the clarification. I thought the current system was unacceptable because I assumed 9 second draw time across the board. Now that I know armor affects it, I can see that the current system is "acceptable" (I think we all know archery in TFC needs some kind of improvement, but how exactly to improve it...).
  10. Just A Little Archery Tweak.

    I didn't realize that armor affected draw time.However, I don't think "the bow will do the first pullback animation, which you can start firing less than halfway through" is right. At least in metal armor, you can only start firing a dozen ticks after the first animation ends (from personal tests).It looks like my times are slightly off since I used a clock for timing. Roughly 9 seconds for a full draw in metal armor, not 10.
  11. Just A Little Archery Tweak.

    Except if you draw for slightly less than that, the bow doesn't fire at all, and there's no visual indicator for where that point is. The damage also doesn't scale linearly; a 5 second charge fires a limp arrow that travels even less than a javelin and does barely any damage. Edit: The bow's damage scales linearly after the point where you can fire, so it looks something like Seconds 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10Damage 0% --------- 0% 10% 50% 100%If I wanted to do a "half charge", I would have to draw for 7-8 seconds, and at that point I may as well go the full 10 seconds.
  12. Just A Little Archery Tweak.

    Exactly, rezzing is a special case. Imagine if standard skills in WoW all had 10+ second cast times. That's basically archery in TFC right now. Look, arrows stack up to 16 right? It would take more than two and a half minutes to fire 16 arrows at full charge. Vanilla Minecraft smelting takes 10 seconds. Drawing a bow in TFC takes the same amount of time as cooking iron ore into ingots in Vanilla. TNT takes 4 seconds to explode. You can detonate two blocks of TNT consecutively in the time it takes to draw a TFC bow. I can't emphasize enough how slow it is. OP used six "very"s. If each "very" took one second to say, that's still four seconds faster than drawing a bow in TFC. If it took you ten seconds to type a word, a 500-word essay would take an hour and a half to type non-stop.
  13. Just A Little Archery Tweak.

    Simply halving both the damage and the full draw time on the current bow and arrows would make archery a lot more palatable without affecting balance too much. Right now it takes around 10 seconds, and you have to draw for 3-4 seconds just to fire an arrow. That's absurd. I mean, Halo's Spartan Laser takes four seconds to charge, to make an over-the-top comparison. I can't think of any game that requires you to charge up a skill or weapon for ten seconds and for good reason, it sucks as a game mechanic.
  14. [0.79.?] Progression flowchart

    Version v0.3 https://d.maxfile.ro/bamazxknaj.png I was using a graph generator to deal with TFC's complexity, but I think that's unmanageable in the long run, so I've switched to doing the layout manually. Unfortunately that still doesn't solve the fundamental complexity problem, so I'll start dropping some details, like how Querns depend on sticks.

    I think I need to simplify things a bit, this is way too messy. https://d.maxfile.ro/mqgsjtqees.png
