      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. IGN: Bilo666 Age: 21 What are you good at in TFC, or what skill do you wish to focus in? Usually focus on farming and fishing, but can branch out it need be. Do you wish to join the main town or be on your own? Will probably play on my own for a bit, and depending on numbers may start my own town. Skype(optional): Would prefer to keep private.
  2. In my opinion the only 'magic' which could realistically be implemented is something along the lines of hallucinogenic drugs like from a rare mushroom which only grows in a certain light or something which when taken would put u in a trance like state, although I really don't see how this would benefit you, unless you would just like the effects or it could have some use like enabling a pathfinder which showed you the direction of the nearest animals for how long it lasted, I don't know but this seems a bit odd and unrelated to just eating a 'special' mushroom. The idea of other dimensions would just make the mod more complex as it already is and would take ridiculous amounts of work... Magic is just completely unrelated to the don't see why so many people are insisting it should be added in one way or another although i do like the idea of simple brewing such as making poisons or 'pain killers' from something like tree bark or certain plants, which would temporarily increase health for a certain period, or have restorative properties but things apart from that in terms of brewing i think would make farming mobs and other things too easy.
  3. Nomadic/exploratory shelter

    I agree that it is time consuming building a quick shelter every night when travelling and yes tents were used although more likely to be made from animal hide and bone/strong branches and these still would have had taken some time to set up. But the problem is that realistically hostile mobs, be they the monsters now or hostile animals in the future, would have torn tents to pieces unless well camouflaged or well lit up in the proximity around the site - a tent in the middle of the open isn't exactly going to deter or stop zombies . Maybe when the monsters are replaced by hostile animals it could be a possibility, but at the moment it would be just be a bit too simplistic just to sleep in a tent at night and pray zombies wouldn't come along and attack.Just do what I do at the moment - dig a hole and cover with thatch - saves the hassle of making a shelter!
  4. Larger boats

    I would like something implemented like a dugout canoe, which would have been able to carry two people and some goods probably the equivalent of a single chest full of items. These were hugely popular during the stone age and throughout the bronze ages/iron age so in terms of dating for the boats it shouldn't be a problem.
  5. Increase soil nutritient capacity, balance crops (?)

    Sorry ignore me about the soy beans, i was being stupid, meant green beans, although i think soy beans nutritional value should be much lower if they last that long as at the moment I can easily live on just soy beans due to the amount you get per crop and the quickness of its growth
  6. Increase soil nutritient capacity, balance crops (?)

    I imagine when food spoilage comes in it will make it better for balancing out nutritional values as well, For example potatoes, onions and squash tends to take a long time to spoil, where as peppers, tomatoes, soy beans all tend to go out of date really quickly, it would mean the quick growing or multiple harvest crops would tend to go off quicker and be used form immediate consumption whereas the slow growing crops which produce less would be used more for storage, for example over winter when very few/no crops grow.
  7. I take it back then. Looks pretty nice, may give it a go.
  8. Seems legit... Any pictures or info?
  9. Learning Terrafirmacraft (+other series)

    As a bit of advice its probably worth investing in making some straw blocks to make a portable home quickly. Just left click on tall grass whilst holding a knife and it will drop some straw, then combine 4 of them in a square to make a block, the can be placed and easily breakable, i take around 12 with me when ever i am travelling long distances to make basic shelters. Also u should probably make some clay items (like stone tool making, just right click when in hand, use around 5 each time) recipes are in the link, u need to make a pit kiln for this as well...when u have made the items out of clay, make a 2 block hole in the ground and press shift and right click on the unheated clay items to place in the hole (4 items at a time), then place 15 pieces of straw (not blocks) in the hole, followed by right clicking + shift with a pile of 16 logs in hand, keep right clicking until they are all gone, then get a fire lighter and right click until it lights (may take a few attempts), after its finished burning u can use the items pots are very useful for extra inventory space early on, i recommend making at least 2 and at least 2 water jugs to start. Good luck!
  10. Trapping revisited (Trapping++)

    I really like this idea, this would defiantly be a good alternative to entities being the means of setting off the traps. Perhaps this can be incorporated with traps to catch sea food? I suggested before about the idea of lobster pots and cages to catch things such as squid and other fish. Although i think for this to be successful, the aspect of food spoilage would have to be incorporated with it, otherwise the amount of food sources a player has access to will seem overwhelming. But as you said if it takes up to a week to catch anything in a trap this may balance that factor out.
  11. Shell fish/more sea food

    I'm currently studying Archaeology at uni and have great interest in the Mesolithic/Neolithic period. During the mid- late Mesolithic many hunter gatherers formed communities on the coast and lived primarily off sea food, which consisted mainly of shell fish like mussels and oysters etc. I was thinking what with animals being now much harder to find, being able to forage for shell fish on the coast or fresh water would offer a good alternative food source. Lobster pots and other things of that nature may also be useful for people living on the coast, although these would have to be placed in much deeper water. I was thinking this would also offer a decent food source for people living in desert biomes. I'm not sure exactly how this would be implemented, perhaps an adaptation to the current gold pan? Or some form of net? I also think fishing rods as the main tool for fishing should also be changed or edited at least. For example using wicker fish traps or placing large nets or traps and leaving them for a day or so before coming back to collect a bounty of fish. Although i do like the fishing rods, i think bait should be implemented with them. Perhaps digging up grass gives a small percent of dropping worms or some form of insect which could be then combined with a fishing rod to make a baited rod, or using bread as a form of bait? Maybe through breaking it up into bits of bread in a quern? I also think that a fishing rod should have a hook, maybe implementing bone to act like leather, through crafting with a knife it and then being able to make a fishing hook? I have to say though, I love this mod and the progress made with it has been amazing. Keep up to good work!
