      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. Simple "playability" changes.

    Very interesting. I look forward to seeing what you can do with that. My own suggestions: 1) travel options: boats and ships would be fantastic since the oceans are so vast (look to Cuchaz'sships mod for a really good implementation Various carts with various capacities from a hand cart to one which needs donkeys or even horses to pull. This also makes for a good reason to build roads. 2) a real technology progression in armor and weapons: Copper can only make the basics - javelin, hammer, dagger/knife, axe. Linen gambesons and round shields are the extent of armor. (of course, we would need flax in the game to make linen. hint, hint.) Bronze can be used to make a shortsword and some basic armor - breastplate, helm, shin guards. Tower shields are available. Iron begins to accelerate tech, can now make better weapons like the broadsword, warhammer, battleaxe, and poleaxe. Mail and heater shields can now be crafted. Longbow comes in. Perhaps some basic quality of life devices now. Steel gets to the endgame of technology - longswords, halberds, war axes. Full plate becomes available. Things like powered (by wind, water, or livestock) bellows and anvil hammer become available. Recurves and crossbows come in. 3) Coinage made from precious metals (platinum, gold, silver, copper) to support player economies. Gives a sink for some of it and a use for platinum. 4) Different kinds of meals, not just salad and sandwich. Soups/stews and platters would be a good addition. Just some random ramblings at 4AM. See if any of it sticks.
  2. [1.7.10] TerraFirmaCiv - The Beginning

    Journeymap is almost essential. TerraMisc and NEI are really good plugins to have too. I've also managed to make Cuchaz's ships mod work for me.
  3. TFC Twitch Stream "Terra-fidda Wut?"

    Seriously? I think my voice is awful and annoying. LOL
  4. TFC Twitch Stream "Terra-fidda Wut?"

    Episode 4 will be Monday, Sept. 12 at 10 PM Pacific.
  5. TFC Twitch Stream "Terra-fidda Wut?"

    Thanks for the feedback and the follow, ChunkHunter! Here's the Minetweaker recipes: Enjoy
  6. So I've begun doing a live Twitch stream for TFC and I've completed an introduction and 3 episodes so far. It's not great. I'm really, really new to streaming and have had a few technical difficulties, but I'm getting there. I'm approaching it from the perspective of a Let's Play for people who might not have played or even heard of TFC before. Due to my job, I can't really make a regular weekly schedule, so it more or less happens when I have the time, but I'll try to make a post here a day in advance to announce the time. you're interested. Look in the Highlights section for previous episodes.
  7. Updating to 1.8 &1.9

    That's Microsoft in a nutshell. I suspect that they want to do away with the modding community so they have total control over content. They're like that.
  8. How are you guys dealing with caves?

    Not in my experience. I find that if I take out a second block above my horizontal beam, I tend to get caveins. Here, from the wiki: A single horizontally placed support beam will prevent cave-ins in an area that is 4 blocks in each horizontal direction, and 1 block above and below the beam (9x9x3 Area).
  9. Brass

    Bearings, fittings, bushings, etc. Brass is used pretty extensively in industry. My firehose nozles at work are usually made of brass, too. If you're going to ask for advice and suggestions to a problem, I'd think you'd be a bit more gracious when receiving it, even if it wasn't what you're looking for. Redundant or not, I think the decorative brass suggestion is by far the most elegant solution I've seen because it doesn't rely on someone reading a webpage or assuming that they understand metallurgy enough to know that brass is not historically used for tools.
  10. Oh my gosh. This is amazing. This is something that I've specifically felt TFC was lacking and needed.
  11. [0.79.29] DarkAgeCraft Off Line

    Minecraft user name: Gwtheyrn Your Age: 36 Your Time Zone: Pacific (-8 GMT) Location Country and State: USA, WA Tell us a bit about yourself: I'm an older Minecraft player, since early alpha, and I've been doing TFC since high 40s builds, if I recall correctly. I got out of it for a little while, but I'm looking to get casually involved in multiplayer again. I'm a parent and I work full time, but I can dedicate a few hours a week. Looking for a cooperative experience more than a competitive one. How can you help us: Though it's hardly a unique skill, I am really good at prospecting. I guess you could say I'm a pro with the pro pick. I used to be pretty good at smithing in previous builds too, though I haven't done it much yet with the current or recent builds. I've run a few servers in the past and partook in an old TFC let's play series. Outside of this, I suppose what I bring the most is an older voice to add into the mix.
  12. Should TFC give more support to other playstyles?

    Nothing is really stopping you from playing it however you like.
  13. I am missing reasons to build a shelter

    For me, I build because inevitably, zombies, spiders, and skellies wander over.
  14. A Hard Lesson to Learn

    And there it rose as though some fiendish sorcery had mashed my two greatest horrors together. I trembled in its presence as my sanity frayed along the edges of the long rent seams within my mind.
  15. [TFC 0.79.17] Lanterns Addon for TFC

    This has been so awesome. Thank you.
