      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. Do you check the forum everyday?

    After actually playing the game (which is extremely accessible), I have to say that the vision is similar to TFC and I was too quick to judge.The graphics are splendid, and the mechanics are superior to anything that latches onto the MC platform. The creators are obviously onto something here. There are a lot of promising features planned, but even as it stands right now the game is on par with TFC in terms of content; I'd go as far as stating that Vintage Story (pains me to refer to this gem by this name) does many things much better than TFC. The mechanics of metalworking, for example, arevastly superiorin VS. Other than some minor gripes, I was left very pleasantly surprised by the game. Future relations between TFC staff and VS? One can only dream, but I'm pretty sure that the people behind Vintage Story can pick up the reins on their own. TFC players are much better off migrating at this point.

    Sorry brother I don't mean to be rude, but the name "Vintage Story"to me is very unappealing. The name is suppose to be the face of what's underneath, and it's meant to encapsulate the vision of the creators. I looked into the game a bit, and it looks nice so far. However, the fact that those in charge of it sat down and agreed to name it "Vintage Story" gives me an idea of the staff's vision and the direction it's likely to take. TFC's name has a sort of primordial, almost ominousvibe to it that fits incredibly well with what the mod is about; the name "Vintage Story" is fitting for the type of setting that is fundamentally different than what TFC attempts to portray.

    The only way forward for TFC is standalone. MC has been on the road of Modding community rejection for many years and it's only getting worse. The effort put into a mod written in J*va is roughly comparable to the amount of effort needed to create a standalone. The difference is that a standalone has all the room to grow on the dev's terms, and can actually bring in income. A mod, however, is nothing but sweat and tears; all leading up to being completely steamrolled by Mojang and having a totally dead community to show for. Niche games can last a lifetime, but the reason why niche mods don't is because they're niches of a niche, and the people who are into game modes like TFC don't bother looking into MC to begin with. Games like Vintage Story show that there is some sort of demand for a TFC-like game that isn't constrained by an unfriendly platform. But Vintage Story just doesn't display the same spirit as TFC. The name "Vintage Story" alone is a HUGE red flag and the biggest reason why I'm not going to look into it. In other words, I don't see a future for TFC inside the MC framework; what the staff should do is pick up the vision of TFC proper, and channel their talent on an independent platform. Just as long as they stay away from things like ingame purchases and dlcs.
  4. Hello, I'm looking for a TFC server or group with some elements of lore building/rp in a medieval/renaissancesetting, or any time period before it. Low fantasy is okay; a mix of different time periods is okay if they're all older than the renaissance period (no industrial/steam era and beyond). RP doesn't have to be heavy or widely practiced, but I would like to play in a server that is set on one of the settings I mentioned above. I'm okay with other mods being present.
