      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. Here is a list of ideas I have for decorations and landscaping: Beauty Bark: Bark crafted from logs used as decoration in gardens or yards. looks like small strips of bark evenly spread on top of the ground.Bonsai Trees: A small tree that can be made from some saplings that can be somewhat customized in shape.Display Case: Good for indoor decoration and can carry most items. Size should be an option, as well as style.Tablet: Can be chiseled from any type of stone (hopefully including obsidian) and works like a sign, but can also have images chiseled into it too. (writing and images engraved with a black line. More visible than chiseling normally into stone.)Fountain: A multi-block structure that uses modular pieces, so it can be fully customized. Once built, can be filled with most water vessels.Paintings: Different from vanilla paintings. These have the size chosen when crafted, and the picture chosen when placed.Obsidian: Nothing really specific, just please let us do some cool decorative things with it! So what does everyone think?
  2. New smithing system and armor/weapon types

    Well, how the weapons that do two types damage stay balanced, they simply do 50% damage of a normal weapon. Some real constructive critique hear. I appreciate it. (no, that wasn't sarcasm. I only do obvious sarcasm) And I like the idea of having clothing and armor on separate slots better than my idea of armor layering. And yeah, armor should have more steps like you said.
  3. I have a good idea (in my opinion) for a way to change up the smithing/forging system with weapons and armor. To make a tool with an anvil, you will still need one made from an equal orgreaterthan tier of metal. But now, you will also need a hammer of equal or greater tier to get full durability and efficiency. Also the type of hammer will contribute to this too for what is being forged. Types of hammers may be ball peen, doming, chaser, ect. And there should also be three types of armor: Chain Mail, Lamallar, and plate. Chain mail would have really high slashing resistance, but little crushing with almost none topiercing. Lamellar would require sinew, jute fiber, or leather in addition to metal. Lamellar would have higherpiercingresistance, but less crushing and a little slashing. Lamellar would balance things out more, though. And plate would have everything pretty balanced out, but would overall be better. The biggest disadvantage to plate would be resources and weight. That brings me to armor layering and weight. You can always layer armor (as in put chain mail under lamellar or plate) to get higherprotection. But wearing to much armor will slow you down. wearing full steal chain mail and plate would protect you a whole lot, but you will move 15% slower and take up more thirst when sprinting and jumping. I also think that wearing very heavy armor will not protect a whole lot against fall damage. And now, weapons. The weapons in the game already have good variation, but maybe there should be some that do less overall damage, but domultipletypes of damage. I'm talking about war hammers (piercingand crushing), Spears (piercing and slashing), and battle axes (slashing and crushing). And when forging blades, Ibelievethat sword forging should beelaboratedtomake better swords, knifes, spears, and axes. This would involvefullers, bevels, grinding, cross guard making, pommel making (because weight should effect sword attack rate), heat treating, and oil quenching. Maybe even add tang forging todetermineweight and grip. Also different handles would be cool to add more to grip. I think grip should be related to strike force anddefense. That is my idea for TFC2. Please let me know what you think, as adding a complex combat system integrated into the forging system. I think adding so many different types of armor and weapons will let players develop their own play style and preference. I hope everyone likes this. I would really like to see this in game.
  4. Description: I have a question about the alloys issue where adding output metals into a crucible containing the metals to create that alloy creates unknown metal. couldn't you just make it so that the game could check for what metal is being put in, and then check for the output metal. if the metals are the same, the metal being put in will be broken up into the metals to create it after checking for what metals are already in the crucible. the proportions will then match that which is already in the crucible. I think that the proportions being off a little than what they were before is a little better than losing hours worth of mining and smithing because you forgot to empty the crucible first. I'm not sure if that is how programming mods works, but I hope it is. (still holding onto that one crucible that has over 2600 units of unusable bronze in it that I NEED)
