      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. Nomadisim vs Settlement

    I remember reading in a thread that TFC was never intended to be a game where one puts down roots and survives in place. That it was intended for the player to move around to find the different elements needed to survive and advance through the tiers of resources. On the surface I understand this, but most of my own attempts at playing TFC1 and the Let's Plays I have watched, find the player locating a suitable location and settling down. They then explore out from this central permanent settlement to locate and obtain the resources needed, counter to the explained intended style of play. I think one of the reasons for this is that while TFC adds a lot of interesting complexity to the base game, that complexity also comes with a lot of needed infrastructure which is not very transportable. Having to tear down and rebuild ones infrastructure or recreate it at a new location when one needs to move to locate and obtain new resources is not very fun game play. It takes a lot of time and effort to setup one needed infrastructure. I am interested how this is going to be addressed in TFC2 with its new design utilizing island chains each with only a small subset of resources. It is either going to mean a lot more travel to find resources to advance or a lot of base / camp building. How will the need to move be balanced against the need for the activities to be fun?
  2. [B76] Latest version bugs & FAQ.

    I have generated two worlds one with build 76 and one with build 76 hot-fix 2. Both have experienced the same world generation bug. My worlds are getting random mis-generated chunks. These are not missing chunks which are a client rendering bug, but rather singe chunks which do not fit the terrain and are mostly or completed filled with water at sea level.
  3. Birds. (and other atmosphere things)

    It might also be nice if birds and insects get quiet when they sense danger is nearby. Thus we could use the environment to alert us to the possibility of nearby danger, if we listen. You know since creepers are so darn sneaky.
  4. My Kingdom for a roof

    Half slabs are ok for making roofs but stairs are have issues with inside and outside corners. Chiseled stone allows for greater detail in roof design. I would love to see proper wedge shapes in different rise over run lengths and supporting both inside and outside corners.
  5. I really like the style of this texture pack. Very nice.
  6. how do you make a logpile because it wont let me do it

    Thank you Eleazzar, I can now stack wood, I feel like a real cave man now.
  7. how do you make a logpile because it wont let me do it

    That does not explain why I place a standard tree trunk block when I try to place a log pile while holding the shift key.
