      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. [0.79.15] Evolution 3 Server [Technical Modpack]

    I'd like to join the server! My username is The__Philosopher (that's two underscores). Even though I haven't played with tech mods in TFC yet, I think it could be fun.
  2. Yes, that could be a way to do it. Maybe copper only reads the top layer (which would be rather useless, but it's only copper), bronze reads the top and middle layers and from wrought iron onwards you get readings for all three layers? It would be in line with this suggestion, which I thought was pretty good: In all my years playing TFC, I've onlymadecopper hoes, to enable the nutrient readings, but do all my soil tilling with stone hoes. Never have I made a higher tier one. Actually, since tilled soil pretty much always remains tilled, you only need to till a decently big area at the beginning of your survival world, and you're set for the rest of the time. It would make much more sense if tilled soil reverted back to dirt after harvest. This would be consistent with the fact that, IRL, fields after harvest are left with small roots, stubble and whatnot, which has to be dealt with before being able to seed come spring. I don't know if that would be something feasible within the mod, however.
  3. Maybe something like a geologist's hammer, or something of the sort, to sample what rock types are in the middle and bottom layers. Maybe it could have a skill level attached to it, being more likely to get it right the higher the skill. Or it could be linked to the prospecting skill, since in a way they are related. One for ores/minerals, the other for rock types. I know that I certainly would have loved to have something like that when I was looking for that elusive Gabbro, to get Garnierite.

    Screenshots might help shed some light

    Yeah, at first I thought of settling down somewhere down South, where I found some cool looking mountains, but then I figured it would be nice to settle down here. That way I can follow more closely the progress you make on the series, visit the same landmarks, etc.

    Recognize this place?
  7. Best sandwich ever?

    Yes, that's true. The only reward is more food saturation pero sandwich, but it's true that that's not much of a reward to be honest.
  8. [64x][1.7.10] Nobody's Pack [TFC full support]

    Thank you,Nick! Actually, I already have it, it's one of the two resource packs I like to use in TFC. I noticed the link was down because I recommended it to a friend, and he couldn't download it from here. I ended up just sending it to him myself, but I thought it would be good to re-upload it here so that other people could use it. But thanks anyways, it was kind of you to upload it.
  9. [64x][1.7.10] Nobody's Pack [TFC full support]

    @DarkSirNobody, I believe the link is down, could you please re-upload? I think this is one of the best TFC resource packs!
  10. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    That does sound like it does a lot for the immersion of the game!
  11. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    It sounds like fun! Sort of like a labyrinth-mixed-with-parkour adventure map. lol It sure is "special," as you said. My method indeed allows you not to worry about cave-ins. As long as you mine within the 4-block range of the support beams, that is:

    Totally agree with this.
  13. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    Well, your method is a bit more grindy than what I do, but it definitely is thorough! Nice! Also, this is a great idea!
  14. [Peaceful] Estasi l'Ateaum | Roleplay |

    Also, besides longer seasons (I trust that MonyClair explained how to do it, if not, check the I:yearLength value in TFCConfig.cfg), I think it would be a good idea to do what these people did in their server. Faster growing crops would ensure that we can all be sure(ish) to get at least one harvest before winter. In any case, it would at least make it more likely. To do this, you should change theS:cropGrowthModifier value inTFCConfig.cfg. If you want I can explain in more detail via PM. Also, aquestion, is the server running? I couldn't log in yesterday because of some mod version discrepancy between my client and the server. I would really like to be part of the community from the get go!
  15. [0.79] Stacking support beams to maximize ore mining

    Yes, I believe that a bit of organization allows you to get more ore, waste less time (and tool durability), and avoid pretty much anycave-in risk. I do sort of a combination of both, Swiss cheese and organized mining. I mine all the ore in the area, but without unnecessarily mining tons of raw stone. The advantage of my support beam stacking is that, if you don't need to mine them, you can leave raw stone blocks floating around without worrying that they might collapse and destroy exposed ore. It allows for a more rational mining method. For example, check this screenshot, it's my rich gold mine (cross-shaped beam configuration). Look at all the raw stone blocks that are floating around. If I hadn't set up the support beams prior to mining, I either (a) would have had to be constantly checking whether I'm going to mine underneath a stone block, so as to raise support beams for it, or (b) I would have had to mine absolutely all that stone. 'a' is very time-consuming, and 'b', besides being time-consuming, wastes a lot of pick durability. Therefore, I proceed from the top-down, mining all the ore, and the stone blocks necessary to expose them and get to them, but not more stone than is absolutely necessary. The only exception to thisis when I mine for prime resources. That is, in my opinion, rich iron (any of the 3) and any type of garnierite. In those cases I want to get all the ore there is, without regards to how much stone I mine. I still apply one of the four support beam configurations I mentioned, but in these cases I do a sort of strip mining. Starting from the top, I mine corridors leaving two blocks in between, so as to expose all the ore in the vein, and I keep taking these corridors deeper and deeper until I get to the bottom of the vein. This is a screenshot of my rich hematite mine (double squared configuration), in which I applied this technique. I'd like to see how you do your own mines! Do you "Swiss cheese"? Do you implement your own organization? I'm curious to see.
