      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. roanoke... now thats a name I haven't heard in a long, long time.
  2. [Offline] Whitelisted Small Community Role-Play TFC Server

    Jesse N Eastern Yes I have skype, though I havn't used it ina good while. Ludgarthewarwolf 20 Been playing vanilla since 2011 Picked it up after finding it while looking for information on Bloomeries, fell in love with its realism. As for experience, I've played on 3 of the various incarnations of Roanoke. I've always had an issue of single player TFC having no focus or drive, I find that when playing with a community, you get a lot more out of the experience. Plus I've always like to role-play as the amster smelter...
  3. TConstruct-esque tools

    There's more to this idea than just weapons I believe. So far, this thread seems to be focusing on swords, which is not a bad example, but perhaps missing the point. When making an axe the choice of wood used for the handle is just as important as the head. You wouldn't want to use a brittle wood like pine, but hickory or ash would be much better. This would improve the overall durability of the tool. But back to swords. The hilts of swords were commonly made out of wood with a covering of various materials; decorative wood, rayskin, leather, wire; but it was mostly superficial. There was no real "tier" system of better handles over worse ones. What mattered was the blade composition, and TFC already has a metal tier system that is realistic. While this idea is cool, and would certainly add use for precious metals, gems, and minerals; it wouldn't "add" anything of worth to the mod.
  4. Multi-Player suggestions; Metal's Industry

    So I've already posted a post here about "small" changes I though TFC could use, but this post is planned to be a much more larger and encompassing.So I've had a ball playing TFC multiplayer, but I've also noticed some...lacking in how TFC works for a multiplayer community; in this post metalworking. With a town's worth of players prospecting and mining, the default blast furnace seems a bit...small. I believe, if only for balance reasons or aesthetics, that there not only needs to be another tier between the bloomery and the blast furnace, that there needs to be an overhaul of how both work.Bloomery:How the bloomery works now is nice, a much need improvement for realism. But its mechanics are off. Speaking from personal experience and research, common bloomeries need a constant supply or air and charcoal to smelt Iron. The older TFC bloomery was more like RW bloomeries in that regard, but I prefer the simple addition of an air-supply necessity to the bloomeries.Blast Furnace:My one complaint with the blast furnace is its size. Blast furnaces, even primitive medieval ones, had to be much larger to maintain the heat and reducing atmosphere needed for Iron smelting. I propose the addition of tiers to the blast furnace; 1x1, 2x2, and 3x3. As the size increases, so does the output and efficiency, but also the material cost. It would be balanced so that only the largest towns could afford a 3x3 blast furnace. (Previous posts about mechanized air supplies would work here)Catalan Forge:This would be the middle man. Catalan forges were medieval Spanish forges that used highly pressurized air supplied not by bellows, but by a Trompe, a medieval air compressor. These forges would allow solo players to still to produce high quantities of iron without a blast furnace.Additional Ideas would be the implementation of forge welding to create steel from blooms, along with different quality steel for different tools, but those are for another day. I hope you find these suggestions interesting and agreeable- Ludgar
  5. Minor Gameplay additions

    Answers: 1.Perhaps a craftable block of flux that could only be "eaten" by a full barell of water 2. Thanks, though I'm wondering how cold it must get, theres been times Im in snow drifts and it raining 3. I was thinking a not full/ full rendering, with the molten metal color of the either the largest component or the alloy. Thanks for clarifications
  6. Minor Gameplay additions

    Playing in TFC recently, I have noticed some small issues that should be addressed and are quite simple in my mind to fix: 1. Lime-water should be makeable in a barrel, fill one with water and add flux. It would simplify the leather tanning production. Slightly more would be to make mortar mixable in barrels, but again, only a minor change. 2.Instead of raining in the winter months it should snow. Again, I hope a simple change. see below 3.The crucible should "Fill up" with whatever metal it is holding. I hope these contribute to the development.
  7. Mechanical Power. What do people(you) think about it?

    I think any such mechanization would be interesting, but think it's best application would be to multiplayer. Maybe it would scale, as more and more tedius tasks become aided by mechanization of any sort, than the resources required would also grow, leading to a need for contnued growth and expansion.

  11. [B75] Surface Ore Vein Near Spawn

    This seed is better than you think. Whilst digging down to prospect, I breached a humongous cavern with plenty of iron, copper, galena, tetrahedrite, and cinnabar. Check it out.
  12. Official TFC Birthday Contest Thread

    All the content shown was crated by the community on the Roanoke server Cheyenne Mountain Mining Complex. I too could not figure out how to upload any images, so heres a link to the imgur gallery.
  13. The OLD Roanoke Thread
