      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. Nordic Survival - a Playthrough Journal

    Cool! I like how you selected a northern area for a nice challenge. The ice fishing seems especially realistic, you're like an Inuit! The house upon the hill also looks wonderful.Can't wait to see more of your adventures.
  2. Another photo journal of a v79 playthrough

    Good run, it was very entertaining to watch you adventuring and building all this awesome stuff!
  3. Just an interesting ore generation detail I've stumbled across. I was looking for some Sphalerite inbetween two layers of stone. I was wondering whether the vein will bea gneiss one or rather full of schist.(no pun intended)It turned out to be both! I didn't know it could spawn in two layers at once like that.
  4. I've started a new world recently, and have been having much fun with it. However, I am amazed by how much mundane stuff I have to do daily! Feed the baby animals to familiarize them, shear the sheep and milk the cows, check out the crops growing, check out the trees growing, check out the fruit tree garden and/or collect fruit,check out the alcohol and vinegar production. Sometimes you also have to keep an eye on your pit kilns, fire pits, smoke racks, (Decoration's) mud bricks drying, food decaying, water bottles emptying. And I'm still in the Casting Age! I'm not ranting, I actually really like that the game forces you to wait and to do different stuff all the time. You really have to think and manage your time wisely to get the most out of the game! What can I do right now? - you ask yourself. What can I do this night? What can I do next month, next season, next year? Should I take a trip to thisminetomorrow or should I postpone it? Do I want to go to faraway lands to find new resources or do I want to familiarize my animals first? It really adds to the game. In vanilla you can spend hundreds of days just mining or building, but in TFC (at least singleplayer, and at least at the early stages of the game) you really have to keep all the different aspects of the gameplay in mind. I was just wondering if someone had it worse than me. Do you guys also have many chores to do in your game? Do you manage to keep your tasks in balance? Or does something (metallurgy, mining, exploring,food preservation) keep you so busy that you often forget about other things? Share your experience with TFC time management.
  5. My hardcore playthrough

    Pretty cool, hopefully you'll find tannin trees soon. I can't wait to see how your base will turn out.
  6. New adventure in the mountains

    What a wonderful adventure! Some of these mountains look hardcore. Also, you have a lot of wood! O_O And congratulations of finding the TerraFirmaDream - graphite!
  7. Tips on fighting bears?

    I avoid them too, but this pair was extra sneaky. I do have water nearby, both a saltwater gulf and a little fresh water pond. Might come in handy. It's February, though, so little pieces of ice might make it a bit more difficult. Several pits are time-consuming, and the danger of falling in is high. Though I'm also thinking of bringing my horse with, and he can sure jump two blocks high. I might try to do this. In fact, if I do manage to trap both bears in, I will not kill them but rather familiarize them. Perfect revenge, in my opinion. I've always wanted to tame a bear in TFC, and this is a perfect opportunity. Trap them in, catch some fish in the sea, feed them regularly. You can get them to the point when they won't attack you at all, right?
  8. Tips on fighting bears?

    It would be hard to set up. Though it sounds amazing. The first thing that pops in mind is a 2x2 deep hole to lure the bear in (maybe with a tasty pig inside?). But that's after retrieving the gear, traps are usually time-consuming.
  9. Tips on fighting bears?

    Hmmm. I heard people liking the TFC bow as a weapon, but I never got used to it myself because it takes very long to draw. Perhaps I should change my opinion and take the bow and quiver out of the dusty chest. I have no idea how to shoot a bear in a dense forest, though, maybe lure it to the seashore and then run away.
  10. Tips on fighting bears?

    So, I'm not a very battl-ey kind of person in Minecraft. Even in vanilla, I am always scared of hostile mobs and try to fight them as little as possible, always hiding or sleeping away the nights. (Yet I don't play on Peaceful, seems a bit cheaty for me + mobs drop useful items, and in TFC experience gives you extra health points). In TFC, that stays true as well, and since I haven't yet found sheep in my world, I spend my nights in-doors, in the smithery or re-organizing my items. And just recently, on my way to a gold/galena mine, I had... an accident with a bear. The game was lagging, it was aggressively jumping at me, I couldn't hit it properly because the leaves blocked the view... so I died. Angry with having died so stupidly, I respawned by my base and spent some time smithing a sword and a chestpiece with the little wrought iron I had. After equipping those and heading back to my death point, I tried to lure the bear away from the items. I thought I succeeded, having barely overrun him, and retrieved some of my stuff, but it turned out the other grey spot on the map was also a bear... So yeah, I rage quit again. Did anyone else here had similar problems with bears? I've always thought TFC bears are slow and not very clever, but these two seem like the Bonnie and Clyde of the stone age Very sneaky, hiding in the leaves, and fast too, like I said, I only barely (bear-ly ) escaped that first bear. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, maybe I should stick to a different tactics? I had a mix-match of copper, bronze and wrought iron armour (maybe bismuth bronze too, can't remember now), tried to fight with a black bronze mace and a freshly-made wrought iron sword. (by the way, the first "accident" happened just before Etho released his video with a similar situation. Little did I know back then about how similar our fates would turn out to be)
  11. New adventure in the mountains

    Nice! I like your house, it's small but with character, and everything seems to be organized nicely in there. And you have sheep and a rich copper vein, this is a big deal! Keep up, I'm looking forward to your next updates.
  12. Barn to be Wild

    It's very neat and clean-looking, and the colours of the woods are very nice. Who is going to live in this barn?
  13. TFC Myths

    When your first winter comes, you should stock up water because everything will freeze and you risk dying of thirst. If you break an ice block, it turns into water, like in vanilla, so you don't have to fill up thousands of barrels of water
  14. World generation

    The island looks awesome! And I like the size of it, it's decent, but not, like, a continent. Not only could you manage to explore such an island fully, but build many scattered buildings and still be able to move between them pretty fast. Mojang is re-working boats now, I wonder if the new boats will be of use in TFC2 with the islands. (I know, a teleportation system is preferred, but still. Could be useful for new rivers as well)
  15. How not to play Terrafirmacraft

    I only died twice in my world so far, and both times I fell from a Douglas Fur tree in an attempt to cut down its leaves. I guess it's a good thing that Sequoias don't give saplings from leaves...
