      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. Shield Concept Art and Discussion

    Wait I have done more accurate designs. I'm not that good with metal textures so you can use these any way you want. Now, black is metaloverlayand white is wood (or banner). Red is invisible overlay. Wood: Exterior Interior (Yes it is identical) Copper: Exterior Interior Bronze: Exterior Interior Bismuth Bronze: Exterior Interior Black Bronze: Exterior Interior Wrought Iron: Exterior Interior (We already have it thanks to @eagleyes005) Steel: Exterior Interior (Identical too) Black Steel: Exterior Interior Blue Steel: Exterior Interior Red Steel 1: Exterior Interior Still sure red Red Steel 2: Exterior Interior not about steel P.S.
  2. Shield Concept Art and Discussion

    We could have 2 textures for every shield, one for the interior and one for the exterior... the model would be generated by the interiorand the front of the shield will have another texture, or viceversa. By the way, eagle i like your textures but i dont think we need stripes of metal everywhere, an umbo should be enough for most shieds Here is how the overlay textures would actually look:(they will be 16x32 for this shield of course). I was thinking... we could stillput banners in the front face of the shield, covering the wood. Of course the umbo and other metal parts would cover the banner but a lot of decoration options would still be there.
  3. Shield Concept Art and Discussion

    Yes. Maybe without the vertical metal stripe in the interiorit would be better. Not sure. I was thinking.. Couldn't we render all the models from the textures like almost minecraft item does and then add the handle or the leather strips, instead of making a separate model for every shield? This would be much easier. We will have flat shields, for it isn't a problem. This way we could also make 2 versions for every shield, one with the handle, one with the leather strips. The first would be faster to draw, the second will reduce knockback more than the first.
  4. Shield Concept Art and Discussion

    of course yes, they're here for that
  5. Shield Concept Art and Discussion

    I made (front) shapes for all shield tiers, not textured or modeled yet. I designed the shields, i didn't really like 16x16shields that were being designed here (thought, good textures were being made, sorry).I think shieldsshould be bigger than 16x16, like vanilla. Wooden:16x32 Copper:16x16 Bronze:20x20 Bismuth bronze:16x32 Black bronze:16x32 Wrought iron:16x32 Steel:16x32 Black steel:16x32 Blue steel:16x32 Red steel 1:20x32 Red steel 2:24x20 Unsure about the red steel. What do you think is better?Are they too fantasy?In any way red steel is designed to go to the left hand so it will have to be mirrored if the player is left handed. EDIT: Ok this thing is more complicated than I expected. Anyway i want to clarify that these are now not meant as textures or models but just as design ideas. just the shape of the shield.
  6. Different stone types have different hardnesses

    I posted a link to this suggestion before in another topic, but i decided to make a separate suggestion to see better what people think. This is how i would do it. 1 is the relative actual hardness of stones in TFC: Chalk, Rock Salt, Schist: 0.5 Limestone, Shale, Conglomerate, Chert: 0.75 Claystone, Marble, Phyllite, Slate: 1.0 Dolomite, Gneiss, Rhyolite: 1.25 Quartzite, Dacite: 1.5 Gabbro, Andesite: 1.75 Basalt: 2.0 Granite: 2.25 Diorite:2.5 These multipliers should work for blast resistance of the blocks and for their tool's durabilty, too. We could have different textures for every stone type for tools, or simply a tooltip that indicates what's the tool made of. I think all this would make gameplay ever more interesting, I did experiment this with customzed Iberia mod and it is really good. EDIT: i don't know what the heck happened with the fromatting please help
  7. I know, but telling before is better. And some suggestions if accepted before the mod is complete could be easier to implement rather than if the mod is already complete.
  8. I have been testing textures: -Andesite has been modifiedand can now be rotated/reflected in any way; -Basalt can be rotated/reflected in any way; -Chalk can be rotated/reflected in any way; -Chertcan be rotated/reflected in any way; -Claystone can be rotated/reflected in any way; -Conglomerate has been modified and looks good rotated/reflected in any way; -Dacite can be rotated/reflected in any way; -Diorite Has been modified and can be rotated/reflectedany way; -Gabbro has been modified andcan't anyway be rotated 90 or 270 degrees asit looks bad; -Gneissmust notbe rotated 90 or 270 degrees as it looks bad; -Granite has been redone and can be rotated/reflected in any way; -Limestone must notbe rotated 90 or 270 degrees; -Marble has been modified and can now be rotated/reflected in any way; -Quartzite can be rotated/reflected in any way; -Rhyolite can be rotated/reflected in any way;
  9. Simple "playability" changes.

    I don't see how this is a problem... You should expect lìfinding less people in dry climates and deserts. Anyway, Idon't think we need this. Sure sometimes clay is hard to find, but life is sometimes unfair, too. Thought some things should be tweaked and changed in the world generation, i think i will make a suggestion sooner or later.
  10. Well honestly i wasn't expecting that... But im not sure, we should test the rotation for all stones and with bigger grids. I think im'g going to edit them a little (that ugly 2x2 square on the diorite!!!). Anyway LOL here in Italy we call that ice cream Stracciatella... However,the diorite textures is one of these that i like most, i think it's subjective with the diorite if you like it or not.
  11. I know, but it is really complicated to make textures that don't look bad by doing that. With vanilla stone it's easy because it only uses 3 shades of gray. Thought you could try doing that, if you think you can. I will be doing cobblestone, bricks and other textures if the devs say that they agree on changing at least some textures: Andesite, Basalt, Chalk, Chert, Claystone, Comglomerate, Dacite, Diorite, Gabbro, Gneiss, Limestone. Also i think some of these textures look more vanilla than most TFC stones. If devs don't agree I think i will be doing just a texture pack.
  12. A call for Artists

    Uhm i realize now that giving textures the way i did it's a bit complicated, as you have to rename them when downloading, is it a problem for you?
  13. For what I understand, in vanillathe damage depends almost linearly on the cooldown: so if you manage to hit the enemy with a weapon that has 4 secondscooldown 2 times in 4 secondsor 1 time in 4 seconds the total damage nearly is the same. So WTH is the point of all cooldown mechanics??? When they first implemented cooldown the eqution was not linear but exponential. I think that was a way better solution, as it would really give a reason to wait for the cooldown to end. The equation shouldbe then d*(t/c)^2 with d being the weapon damage, t the time passed, c the weapon cooldown time. This way a sword that deals 200 damage and has 1.25 seconds of cooldown will deal: 8 damage if used every 0.25 seconds, wich in 5 seconds will deal a total of 160 32 damage if used every 0.50seconds, wich in 5 seconds will deal a total of 320 72 damage if used every 0.75 seconds, wich in 5 seconds will deal a total of 480 128 damage if used every 1.00seconds, wich in 5 seconds will deal a total of 640 200 damage if used every 1.25 seconds, wich in 5 seconds will deal a total of 800 Also, you shouldn't be able to use the weapon until it is at 50% cooldown (to avoind spamming to keep away the enemy or similar behaviours) Another suggestion, the swing speed should also depend on the material of the weapon and on the skill of the smith. A broze mace is way heavier than a steel or wooden one and a skilled smith would make more balanced swords.

  15. I have made this suggestion on TFC+ forum, it would work here too: https://www.reddit.com/r/tfcplus/comments/8e34qf/hi_dunk_i_have_a_few_suggestions_heres_three_of/ Time ago Imade some new/modified versions of TFC stones. Some were kept unchanged,some were slightly modified and some were totally re-made. I have tried to make them grid-like pattern-free. Andesite Basalt Chalk Chert Claystone Conglomerate Dacite Diorite Gabbro Gneiss Granite(Not sure if I like it, but still gives me more the idea of granite (don't judge me for using vanilla granite)) Limestone Marble Quartzite Rhyolite If you liked the idea to replace these textures, I could make all the other variants, dirt,sand and gravel included... thought im not really expert in texturing and the result could be horrible. i will be trying at least.
