      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. This guy is awesome!

    Haha, I was just going to post that channel here. When I saw that "This guy is awesome!" line, I got a little suspicious. Anyhow, nicely spotted. This is cool stuff for TFC fans.
  2. When can we play tfc2?

    Hear hear. You want to play with modded content, you have to learn to wait. Modding 101.
  3. Updating to 1.8 &1.9

    Might it be... smarter to just start developing TFC2 for Window 10's C++ Minecraft now, instead of gradually having to rewrite it for classic MC at every release? I may be operating from some incorrect info here, but I was led to assume regular MC would slowly be turned into C++ MC. Oh right. My bad, I asked this before over twitter. No modding API for C++, right?
  4. When can we play tfc2?

    Damn, that's exactly the kind of timewaster I was hoping to find for Android OS.
  5. Sounds

    Just wanted to share some results. These will likely happen short term, so you might want to look out for them short term in any upcoming releases: Chipping sounds to go with knappingScraping sounds to go with hide makingChisel noise when smoothing stoneAs for long term, it entirely depends on my workload in the coming weekends and what Bioxx agrees with. We'll just have to see how it works out.
  6. Ore blocks to drop rocks along with the ore

    Hm. Yeah, I see that. Trading one thing for the other like that makes little difference. And it would certainly not warrant coding a whole new ore picking up thingy. Oh well, was just a little thing that occurred to me. I should probably refrain from commenting until I at least manage to play TFC anyway.
  7. Hey.

    I never said people couldn't make suggestions for TFC2. I'm just saying that there's just no point in bringing that up with me. It's pretty clear however where suggestions *are* meant to go on this forum and I invite everyone to do so there. I think you're confusing my practical level of involvement with TFC2 with a condition *to* working on TFC2.
  8. Hey.

    Thanks Kittychanley. I should also point out that not all sounds I finish for TFC2 will always immediately be added to the current development build. I use recordings from both private and public domain sources, but even in the public domain it is considered a common courtesy to notify a foley artist beforehand that you are using their material, before re-publishing it in a different form. Sometimes they'll have it stated somewhere explicitly that you do not need to notify them if you want to use their work, or put everything they make under Creative Commons 0 (for instance if, like me, they are no longer recording new sounds and have withdrawn from the online community for some time). I will still send them a notification that I'm using their work, but I won't have to wait for a reply before I publish it to TFC2. This courtesy is mainly in effect so foley artists who release material in the public domain have some sense of where all their work ends up. On average about half the time it doesn't get in the way of republishing edited sounds immediately, the other half it can take up to a few weeks before I get a notification back. If the wait turns ridiculously long, which is rare but does happen, I'll find some other source sound to build from and start again. tl;dr - some delays are likely to happen.
  9. Tips on fighting bears?

    Bears in general are a bit misunderstood actually. Most are sort of peaceful and prefer flight over fight when encountering humans (though there's no question they would attack you back if you decided to wrestle one). There's this Norwegian survivalist called Lars Monsen who has had something like 100+ bear encounters over the course of his life, in Scandinavia as well as the Canadian wildernis. He always manages to scare the curious ones away and some of these encounters were filmed. He only had trouble with a polar bear who he killed after it tried to attack him while he was sleeping and a grizzly in Canada, who kept tracking him and wouldn't be shooed away until he heard a gunshot. Both subgenus are pretty known to be aggressive toward humans. Either way, Lars has a pretty strict policy never killing them.
  10. Ore blocks to drop rocks along with the ore

    What about mouse clicks to pick up the items you do want from the ground? It's extra work, but maybe the Minecraft vacuum cleaner system was a bit strange to begin with.
  11. Tips on fighting bears?

    I would set some kind of trap.
  12. Hey.

    That would be another request.
  13. Hey.

    Just to clarify, I do not take requests from the community. I work directly for Bioxx. I am however open to feedback on sounds I made that have been added to the development build.
  14. Hey.

    Thanks, Terex. Yeah, MC can be a pretty quiet game. Some atmospheric sounds other than rain would have been nice. But hey, it looks like there are some Dutchies here. Hallo! I'm actually Dutch too, I just live in Norway.
  15. Hey.

    It felt a bit weird to be part of this community forum but not write in it, so here's an introductory post. My name is Tricky. I am a sound editor and I will be helping out with sound production for TFC2. I've done sound editing for many mods for different games in the past, going back 15 years or so. I'm just starting out now with TFC2, but if you have feedback about any of the new (or old) sounds in the TFC2 development build, I'd like to hear about it. Oh, one more thing. In spite of my best efforts, I've actually never been able to get the original TFC to run. That's OK though, I technically don't need to. I just want to help out because I greatly respect the type of gameplay TFC offers. Maybe I'll be able to get TFC or TFC2 to work at some point, maybe not. I just want to help out either way. But for the time being, it does mean that any questions about sound that relate specifically to gameplay should probably be directed at the devs first. Because I just don't... That's all. Important edit: I do not take requests for new sounds. Sound editing is time consuming work and I only have a bit of free time every weekend scheduled for Bioxx's requests. I am however open to feedback about sounds that were added to the development build of the game, especially since I cannot hear the endresult ingame myself. If you absolutely have to make a suggestion for a new sound, the suggestions subforum would probably be a better place for it. But I'm not going to read that because I'm not the one who decides what gets and doesn't get to be in the game. It's as simple as that.
