      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. Dimensions?

    Will we get to visit other dimensions like the nether in TFC2? With magic being a likely feature, it would make perfect sense to leave them in the game as something for mages to do.
  2. Smithing depth

    I really like that idea of etched runes in tools.Those runes could be used to channel whatever form of magic is coming to TFC in the future, like a dual purpose wand.
  3. Effects caused by pain

    What's with the blindness everywhere? I'd like to be able to see whats attempting to murder me, so I can murder it back. The other effects make sense though.
  4. Electrical energy!

    I like this idea. The copper wires could be placed like Red Power cables, and electricity could be conducted in circuits of wires instead of just lines. The generators could just be primitivebatteries, because during the scientific revolution most people just used big batteries for their experiments. Speaking of experiments, here are a few ideas that might fit into TFC: Electrolysis -We could use electricity to rip apartsubstances and get new substances, like sodium and chlorine from salt, or hydrogen and oxygen from water. This could expand on alchemy, and be used toprankyour friends. RudimentaryMotors- If a mechanical power/machine system is implemented, we could craftrudimentarymotors from wood and magnetite,used to produce electricity from spinning cogs and axles, or to create rotational energyfrom electricity. This would also allow the player to produce electricity from windmills and water wheels. Basic Tesla Coils -We could build the infamous Tesla Coil to shock anything within a small radius. It cannot kill, but it will send animals running, and weaken monsters. Advanced Metallurgical Appliances -We could construct heating coils from tungsten/wolframto heat up ovens and we could buildmechanical bellows powered by cogs to heat up furnaces while we're away. No more babysitting that batch of metal!
  5. What the Heck is Redstone Ore?

    Well of course Notch didn't give that much thought.I was just statingthe similarities that I found betweenthe magical energydust and a real life crystal. And it'd be pretty neat to have gemstones with uses in TFC2, would it not?
  6. Boats/Rafts

    If you don't have a boat perhaps you could be prone to being pulled down into the water by some kind ofdeep sea creature, or maybe a tide could start pushing you back to the island.
  7. What the Heck is Redstone Ore?

    In modded Minecraft, redstone is often depicted as some by product of cinnabar. But redstone's properties are not similar to those of cinnabar. Cinnabar is basically mercury ore, nothing very special about it, where as redstone is some sort of piezoelectric crystal. I say this because it's often powered when something bends and warps it, like a button pressing down on it or a lever bending it. I figured that, due to it's interesting properties and it's colour, it's probably red tourmaline. Tourmaline is a piezoelectric crystal and comes in red varieties.So I suggest that instead of acquiring redstone from cinnabar and cryolite, it should come from crushing or refining tourmaline.
  8. Boats/Rafts

    What if instead of using only a boat or only a portal, there was a teleportarea around anisland and if you are riding a boat while entering this area, it transportsyou to the shore of the next island. If you don't have a boat, you eventually drown.
  9. Real Fluids

    Sorry about that, I said something completely different than what I was trying to say...I have tried these things and they worked. When I said "pumped through pipes and stored in other mod's containers" I was trying the talk about pumping liquidsout of barrels.Being unable to automate a wooden barrel makes sense, so I guess what I was tryingto suggestis some sort of automated barrel. I apologise for my lack of clarity. However, it appears the molten metals arenot real liquid. It'd be pretty neat if you could pour them through ceramic channels into casting blocks, like some kind of industrial smelt-mill. What do you think about the other twoideas?
  10. Real Fluids

    Liquids in Minecraft behave in a very odd manner, and I think TFC2 shouldaim to change how they work. Instead of having infinite sources that spread outwards like an egg on a frying pan, perhaps water, lava and any other fluids in the world should spread out evenly, creating a puddle of one pixel tall liquid. The only infinite sources of water would be rivers, lakes and oceans. Basically the Finite Liquids mod spliced into TFC. Another thing is those fluids that come from barrels and metallurgical appliances...They should all be real fluids that can be placed in the world, scooped up again, pumped through pipes and stored in other mod's containers. This way it's compatible with other mods and is generally more immersive. I know I'm not supposed to base my postoff things from TFC1, but I've always yearned to make cheese,alcohol and metal smelting factories along sideother mods, and I'd be overjoyed if TFC2's possibilities were broader than it's predecessor. Finally, you've probably noticed I named this topic Real Fluidsand notliquids. That is because gases would be a great addition to TFC2 as well. There could be underground pockets of toxic, or explosive gas to spice up the mining experience. (Maybe you could even bring canaries down in cages to test the air.) The gases could be both block and chunk based.(Like Thaumcraft aura, but not top-to-bottom chunks, that'd be silly.) Large, thick concentrations of gas could occur as blocks that can affect yourbeing, but if it spreads out enough, it goes to the chunk based system where the gas is present in the area, but isn't concentrated enough to do anything. I'm not sure if the gases are possible, but I thought I'd throw that in the post too.
