      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. ....carrots.....I found carrots! I had to fly in the airship for about 3 hours but I eventually found lovely carrots.....it only took 16 months! About farming....the many types of soil are greatly different in their fertility....you can't just plant anything anywhere and expect it to grow at any decent rate. Additional to this complexity is that when you dig soil it drops as the poorest soil type....no moving good soil from place to place....you basically have to farm where the soil is good. To tell how the soil is you can right click with a how on tilled land and it will give you an idea how rich that soil is. You can also combine sylvite and bone meal to produce fertilizer which has a 50% chance to improve the soil. In the near future Aeroc will be making some sort of toll gate which will fit into the new airship teleport system....pay a fee and build a station at 225+ and you can have an airship station which can be used to fast travel......but there will also be a ticket charge to use the system...no free rides.....I will continue to offer occasional updates and info regarding our server.....but also feel free to inquire for any clarification....cheerio!
  2. Roanoke 6......Challenge Server. If you are up for something very different and very challenging consider joining us on the Roanoke 6 Challenge Server. Using a tweaked Build 77 of the most excellent TerraFirmaCraft mod our programmer has adapted many new features that add to the immersion of the best mod in Minecraft.....to name a few: 1. Travel faster on cobblestone roads. 2. Find ore veins that expand, contract, branch, and fade out suddenly....they also sometimes have a few blocks of other appropriate ores embedded in them. 3. Use the sluice to find clasts (small insignificant bits of ore) to locate valuable minerals and ores. 4. Find zones of abundant ores and minerals and other areas that have doodley-squat!....(hint; the further north you go, the more chance to strike it rich)..... 5. Propick too op?.....ours only reveals the presence of minerals, not the type.......very tricky..... 6.Tool durability and speed are both reduced so no more building tunnels to avoid the surface....what are we, Morlocks?.....(fortunately tnt can be bought at Spawn for a few paltry coins)...... 6. More believable tree growth.....it might take weeks of real time for trees to grow. 7. An in game server economy founded on a presumed external market......many things can be sold and the money used to buy land and helpful things....like better boats and airships!! 8. No more smacking grass to find plants.....each different plant grows in a very few places and finding them is tough, but worth it. 9. Gems can be used to enchant items but they no longer drop willy-nilly when you are mining or pop randomly from a sluice.....you have to find the sedimentary beds where they lie, so we hope your favorite song is "sluicing in the dirt for diamonds"...... 10. Kimberlite can be found in distinct pipes, and other sedimentary minerals can be found in stratified beds. 11. Even the grass is against you as it slows your movement!.....the only solution is to build some roads or railroads….maybe even buy an airship….. 12. Have you ever wondered how a chest actually works without any hinges?....wonder no more because we now require you to provide metal hardware for many of the recipes. You can find the clay mold in the crafting screen….now you have a use for all that copper. Consider this....the server has been online for over a year and we are still using iron tools......there is graphite and kaolinite out there but where?...... Enjin SIte:https://roanoke.enjin.com/ Dynamic Map:http://69.195.134.12:8123/# Look for the pack on Technic.
  3. ....Ruby Tuesday....I had found evidence of a stratified bed of ruby bearing ore with my sluice and had spent several hours trying to find it....alas I had to give up in disgust. However, after a few days of getting my resolve back I vastly re-equipped and set out in my airship to find the damn stuff!.....as I approached my mine I chanced a glance at the mountain right next to me where the telltale sign of ruby ore was blazoned plainly on the rocks!!.....how the HELL did I miss it....lol. In other news, we have had a few old players and a couple new ones drop by.....not sure if they'resold on our vision but we can only hope they come back......no worries either way as it is not for everyone. What I do think we have is a very challenging system which rewards hard work and clever play.....basically "Tanstaafl"....there ain't no such thing as a free lunch. The east road continues to plod eastward to the location of a new server sponsored town....I hope to offer contracts to players to build server buildings....this will be by way of a competitive bid. We also have a new dynamic map up so people can have an idea where they are....I like the map as it is a good mix of oceans and continents. There is also a provision to now expand your town by buying wooden tokens from the land office. That's all for now and if you want a different (and tough) experience give us a look. Cheerio. dynamic map .http://69.195.134.12:8123/#
  4. Is there still development?

    I agree that TFC is the best but it seems to be on hold......maybe someday things will gel.....we are going to fill that gap by adapting TFC on our challenge server.....feel free to join us on Roanoke 6.....it's not for everyone but we like it....cheerio.
  5. I thought I would post my little comment that I just made on our enjin site......it'll keep the other lonely post company.... ...more speaking to the ether I reckon. I made up a post the other day for the TFC Forums that highlighted our unique and challenging server.....I am not terribly confident that there will be a large influx seeing as TFC seems a bit dead right now. If anyone actually sees this please feel free to chime in....even to tell me I am flogging a dead horse (not unlikely)....Aeroc made a number of changes to how farming works with the hoe having a new function and a new recipe for fertilizer....lately I have been mining magnetite from shale (which would induce eyestrain in an eagle) and will soon extend the east road further east (duh) to an eventual station for a north/south railway.....sound fun?.....probably not....feel free to join us....if we get enough players (lol) my wife (Eviljen) might devise some adventures for us with CustomNPC.......cheerio for now!!
  6. Retro Server

    Good day. Is anyone interested in a retro server based on build 77 with extensive modifications that make the world much more challenging?.......if I get some feedback here I will leave a longer and more descriptive post.
  7. Technodefirmacraft Server

    seems to be offline....and now it's online....
  8. Technic server

    Hi there. I don't want to ask a contentious question but is the prohibition regarding providing a link to a Technic server pack still in place? I assume you could have a link to an Enjin site which then had a link to a Technic pack......I am not challenging this rule merely getting the groundwork set up for getting our server back in the game. Thanks for your time.
  9. Beyond Progression

    .....yup.....been banging on about this for years now.....I will discuss this more if you like....
  10. Acacia leaves disappearing

    ....figgered it out....CustomNpc had a config line that said something about leaves decaying....it seemed to exclusively target the acacia leaves....
  11. Acacia leaves disappearing

    Hi there I am running a home server with Technodefirmacraft and I have found an odd thing......when I travel through acacia forests the leaves all disappear off the trees.....this is disturbing to me as one source of fun in the game is controlling the fires from the weather mods dry lightning.......has anyone else had this issue and if so, is there a fix?
  12. Technic server

    Fair point......it's just so very convenient to get your pack out to people........I actually tried to join your server but I was in jail....lol.....musta done something wrong. I still think TFC is the best thing that ever came out of Minecraft (just an aside). Thanks for the reply.
  13. Sult water

    I can't answer your question but I am keen to try your modpack.....is it on the site that must NOT be named?
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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).
  17. TFC360

    This'd make a good server....just saying.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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!!
  23. Thanks atila...I did some work tonight but thats enough...wonder how it happened?
  24. 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/
  25. 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.
