      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. Shall we bring in the navy or the marines to fix it? ;b
  2. My brother is putting in this application through me due to his lack of an email. IGN: beedeeboy skype:none What will you do on the server?: I want to survive and thrive with you guys and my brother. And all around have fun with those around me.
  3. TFC is the only mod that is required, Chococraft was a mod that was being used before the reset. I believe you can use a mini map though. Check with Catluvr
  4. If it is saying that there are blocks missing then you may need to turn onions are gross to false.
  5. Clay working

    This looks great, but what do I need lots of pottery for is it storage, decoration, and if it is decoration what kind. I like the idea of tiles and I would like it even better if I can color it. The best type of color would probably be glaze. Glaze is a colored glass for putting on ceramics. My suggestion would be cone 6 type glazes, these types come in one color and they are predictable, vs cone ten which can have a range of colors for each glaze type. For example blue flambé turns blue with random red streaks. Glazes like ceramic objects need to be sent through a kiln making the above mentioned structure of even more use.
  6. Coins

    Unless NPCs are added then this is more like a mod that multiplayer servers could use. But either way I would like to expound upon the idea. i don't think that anyone should be able to make their own type of coin, should a coin be a thing it ought to be a set thing and have one type. The value can be determined by players though. You should also be able to put these said coins into groups. For example you could take 2-4 string to make a coin holder and from there you can attach 10-20 coins onto eachrope like object. You should also be able to combine ropes to make up an object that can hold up to 100 coins. Or coins need to be stackable to 100 per stack.
  7. Scrap Metal

    I do understand code, I have coded in C#and I would like to point out that rather than making broken tools melt able how about instead they go poof they are gone. Instead let us look at this idea my copper tool isn't dead yet and I just made this shiny new iron tool (I don't bother making bronze tools). Why couldn't I melt down the last of that copper and keep it. The code doesn't need a new texture it simply needs to look at the durability and through a chosen function determine how much copper I would get back, and you don't get the stick back.
  8. About farming husbandry

    This acually sounds a lot like grafting, which is when you take the branches of one tree and attach them to another. I acually do have a very good example of this, my family has a crab apple tree, and crab apples aren't very edible, but they are related to apples.Somy dad got some apple branches being sure to keep them alive. After scraping away the bark he cut a wedge out and put the branch in there, tied it down and sealed the hole tillthe tree took hold of the branch. He grafted many branches to the crab apple tree. Now most trees produce both kinds of fruit on the branches that the fruit is supposed to come from. The crab apple ceased producing crab apples for some reason though. Though we do have a plum tree with 4 types of plums on it. There are acually many ways to graft my dad used just one.
  9. Clay working

    I have thrown on the wheel many times and it is not as easy as people think or make it look. Also why would the player need to keep the clay centered? Once it is centered it usually stays that way, the only thing that would make it un centered is the person throwing. Andwhen someone restarts on throwing they get new clay as the old stuff is too wet to wedge back into a ball for throwing, but once drier the clay can be used.
  10. Is this server just over and not happening anymore? was it or we just not up to the expectations?
  11. Metal Tiers

    So how would textures for custom alloys work? i do love the idea of custom alloys and would support this whole heartedly though with the above question what are the traits for these new metals going to be? Malibility, strength, and melting temperature are all examples of what could be used.
  12. Crafting Table 2.0

    In response to the survey up top it asks whether a 3*3 crafting table is more appealing or 5*5 is. I feel that we could keep the 3*3 in the players inventory as with TFC 1 for simple recipes ment for on the go crafting, but the more I depth stuff on a crafting table as a 5*5 grid. Or I also enjoy the more interactive type of crafting found in TFC 1: an example is cheese crafting. Takes time but you don't have to stay there for it to be made.
  13. Scrap Metal

    This idea is a good idea, the ability to recover small amounts of metal would be nice. A good example of how this would work is: let us say i just make a new suit of iron armor, it would be nice to melt down the old lower tier metal armor to make other stuff such as new tools or just to save the resources. And just to expound upon this thought a tool or metal armor piece should give more metal the higher the durability is.
  14. Volcanoes

    Specific resourcesis a good point and I agree. One such thing most commonly found in volcanos is diamonds. Some volcanoes do have diamonds on the sides of the mouth abundantly, though collecting them would be hazardous. Some other points I would like to state are that they would only need 1-2 types of volcanoes and probably the more commonly depicted types should be used. I do support this idea though it needs to be refined and possibly reduced in the scale of what is suggested.
  15. I may not be on today due to family events, but I will be on tomorrow for sure.
