      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. Smithing takes all the fun out of this mod

    I struggled with the smithing a bit and find it a bit of a pain in the ass but it is rewarding. I personally liked the old system where "close enough" netted you a slightly damaged tool. I also find that smithing is something I have to be in the mood for. My only regret with TFC is that the world is empty....I can make a bunch of stuff but who is going to buy a red steel pick from the last (and only) man on earth?
  2. WIP [TFC-0.79.29] TerraFirmaProgressivePack

    I am going to guess that this modpack isn't on any of the sites which host modpacks......I am scared to even mention their names. I suppose the manual install is a good right of passage so only the worthy get to try your modpack.
  3. I shall bestir my lazy self to offer a heartfelt agreement to Will's statement......it is the best iteration of Minecraft (by far!) from a systems point of view. I can't even imagine playing vanilla MCany more (though it was brilliant for a while).
  4. TFC360

    This'd make a good server....just saying.
  5. TFC360

    I have determined there is no way in HELL to find your modpack on the Curse (cursed) site. I tried any number of times to search and no dice....then I scrolled through the endless list of bloody modpacks.....nope. Your modpack sounds interesting but my mouse wheel has overheated from scrolling....cheerio.
  6. Better Forest Fires

    This is very much like the idea my friend and I have discussed...it would be wonderful. One problem...trees grow idiotically fast....this should be greatly nerfed. Our server had trees taking (species dependent) from 3 to 10 weeks REAL TIME to mature.....loved it and we never came even close to running out of wood...but hey...its a procedurally generated world so just range farther afield. Thanks again for your excellent suggestion.
  7. Better Forest Fires

    I have tested a fire mod that my buddy made and we have plans to try to implement it into a server...this is merely a plan at this point. I truly would sell my soul to "Ol Nick" for an accurate depiction of fire in TFC.
  8. Economy

    No worries mate.....It would be very difficult to do all the buy/sell list from my server but I could tell you it is Roanoke 5 and it can accessed through Tthe Technic launcher with the platform url www.technicpack.net/api/modpack/roanoke5...please feel free to look around and copy any of our prices and ideas. The key is finding things the players WANT to buy...land, status items, political power, furniture.....resist all the whiners wanting to craft stuff so they have to grind some coin to get all the nice toys....just my thought. Hope this helps. I completely support your initiative as I reject the current game model of just trying to come up with different colored ingots....it don't grab me at all.
  9. Economy

    You have an uphill battle my friend but I applaud your efforts. It was/is my objective to have a thriving economy on a server but it seems tough as heck to do. I can give you a couple things from my experience.... 1. There is simply too much stuff....ore everywhere...stupid trees that spring up overnight....dumb fruit trees that bury you in product...insane crops that grow like proverbial weeds....so how does one make an economy in this hell of plenty. We did it by making ore crazy scarce and trees that took weeks to grow.....this scarcity helped somewhat but the low player density on an eternal map makes even this measure only marginally effective in combating the hell of plenty. 2. If you have a server store for players to sell stuff to you also need something they want to buy...this is a big problem. We had it so almost everything could be sold.....peat, food, logs, cobble, ingots, minerals...I do mean almost anything. Then the tough part...what to SELL the players...we had certain things like horses, small boats, vanilla blocks and even disabled some crafting recipes so purchase was the only way to get certain items. We also sold land with a high chunk limit (250,000) and a low price (3 iron coins...this being the sale price of a stack of fir logs). Problem....no one bought into the concept...just bought 10 chunks and set a "base" up then poked away at making the banal "red steel" ingot that marked the games conclusion :/ Anyhoo I hoped this helped and wish you well on all your future endeavours..thanx for the opportunity to vent. Btw....to any potentates of TFC I hope I have not offended your excellent creation...it still is and will likely remain the best iteration of Minecraft.....period!!
  10. Thanks atila...I did some work tonight but thats enough...wonder how it happened?
  11. Looking for Whitelist, TFC Only

    We have a server, Roanoke 5 that is listed here...it is modded but you can buy cheap land that protects your stuff. We are thinking about going to a whitelist too to keep the fools at bay. Please do note it is a modded server and is running our own version of TFC with different ore generation and longer tree growth times....not everyones cup 'o tea but we like it. Have fun wherever you play. http://roanoke.enjin.com/
  12. The Night

    Ok so....what makes the night dangerous...answer, hostile mobs. Questions...why do we need idiotic hostile mobs popping in just because it gets dark!? I am sure this august community and the game developers can come up with something better. Hows about some ideas for dealing with the root of the problem rather than the branch.
  13. The Night

    The core problem is how hostile mobs spawn....it gets dark and they pop into existence...daylight comes and they burn up and are gone. This was a clever way to introduce foes 3 years ago....now its absurd. The developers of Microcraft (oops) need to come up with something superior....a goblin village, an orc encampment, a xenophobic village, a sloth of bears, a pride of lions, bridges with attendant trolls, etc. I really laugh when folks say "we need more realistic mobs....wolves, cougars (the bitey kind, not the buy you drinks kind) but no one mentions the archaic mechanism of their introduction. Anyhow....not quite about beds but somewhat related...have a nice night all
  14. Looking for a new small 18+ vanilla TFC Server

    Hello there. I am an admin on the Roanoke 5 server and we would be glad to have you join us. We are not vanilla TFC but have modified some of the basics to provide a server with more challenge than normal TFC. It isn't everyones cup of tea and we are still running build 77 but the changes made to the basic TFC are worth it....also its mainly mature players. Here's our enjin site address....glad to see you there. http://roanoke.enjin.com/
  15. Hey there.....just wanted to say there are players back on the Roanoke 5 server (well, some anyway) and we are only to happy to see more arrive. All the CustomNPC vendors are working and there is a new railway to take a ride on...see you in game.
