      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. Release Date? Soon?

    as long as you have the base game down.. I think at this rate the modders might take over. but over all, minecraft is at the end of its life as a whole, and personally a release of TFC2 would be great. I just don't know how much traction it will regain. I stop in every month and lurk all of like the 2 new post and to see if TFC2 has become a thing yet.
  2. Underground Farm

    only thing I've ever got to work underground are fruit trees. I have built glass green houses and grew veggies, but that was like patches ago, haven't tried since.
  3. [0.79.29] DarkAgeCraft Off Line

    Minecraft user name: Squirrelzz Your Age: 22 Your Time Zone: EST Location Country and State: Florida Tell us a bit about yourself: I'm a on and offplayer, I play for a couple days, take a couple days off. my goal in game is to get to steel and just build from there.
  4. IGN: Squirrelzz Skype(if any): bbmsquirrelzz What will you be doing on the server?: I wont be playing everyday, but ill be active enough to interact with other players.. also I'll be building a castle over top of an island if I could. my favorite rock is limestone... edit; the mod packs look like a fun play too.
  5. Ores of the Ocean

    well since there is plannedmagic in the game, maybe a potion or of the likes that give you breath for like 10 minutes...
  6. Some Stone Tools Don't Need Wood Handle

    have you ever used a stone adze without a handle? you should give it a go... lemme know how your wrist feel. and what your knuckles look like.
  7. Tallow. beeswax. pine resin. any sort of oil from plant extracts, and of course alcohol. all suitable for lamps and or candles. I think the base ideal is there, how we get there is a different story. and of course, remember we can just trap fairy's in jars and use them as light sources too.
  8. Keys and locks

    seems like a good ideal, but locks started originallyat bronze/brass. [yes you can make bronze springs believe or not.. not as 'good' as steel but it works] but I miss the older world gens where small above ground style caves would spawn, those were always great on MP for hiding your chest away from your 'home' location. and most of the time if someone found one, it would because they are cheaty mc cheaters.
  9. Smithing bonus based on player skill

    smithing is too, one of those things where some players want TONS OF depth. = more time before we get a game + stable releases. and while others find a simpler system okay, to allow other systems to get some love. ironically enough cooking was getting some love in TFC1, but DAT UPDATE THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING. soon followed.
  10. Smithing bonus based on player skill

    To be honest... how often does a player in TFC one ever share the perfect recipesfor their smithing adventures? and if they even did, it really doesn't effect the multiplayer game play for others. I think smithing over all is OP because its valuable in terms of items it produces, leaves a lot of other 'crafts' just being kinda 'meh' anyone can do it. I've been on servers, where I've had a field of 130 olive trees, that I grew from a single tree. Despite olives being the most valuable crop in TFC1. they were on the same level/scale as iron tools pretty much. steel if most of the players had a blast furnace already madeup, and it was cheap/quicker then iron. while I do see where you're coming from and your points, I just personally believe there's other aspects of TFC2 that need to be focused on more so, then the smithing system. we also don't know if bioxx has gotten to said system yet, and if he has if its changed/different from the original system.
  11. Coconut palms

    I think on islands, banana fronds are used more then coconut when available. you didn't point out that coconut 'water' but coconuts got what plants crave. it's got electrolytes.
  12. Future of Building in tfc2

    those are sekrit dokuments...
  13. Future of Building in tfc2

    While, it may not be added right away or at all.. A suggestion as far as getting slight variables in rock types. is have different rock types, "spawned" like ores, inside appropriate rock types of course these areas wont have ores spawning in them, and would take away some of the ore spawning zones possibly making it more limited.. THAT or have some noise added among rock types. allowing rock types of similar types, such as the old metamorphic stones kinda spawn together with a noise type generation. this would still allow ores of certain types to spawn in an area, while giving a variable in the bedrock. I really hope mountains are now going to be more looked for in terms of mining and offer greater ore generation, since we again only have 64 blocks downwards to explore [at sea level].. Not that I don't dislike that, kinda wish there was a watertable though. it'd be cool to >Dig a block. >instant water source spawns in its place. but I can see the glitchyness in doing so, so it can stay a dream. Are lava pools going to spawn? and if so what biome?
  14. Crayfishing/Crabbing/Lobster Hunting?

    seems like fun, heck you can catch crawdads [crayfish] on a fishing line too.. if there could be some sort of mini-game instead of just right clicking would make it better too. and crayfish you can dredge in water with a net, is a lot easier then hand catching. also freshwater shrimp if any of this gets added.
  15. Waves and sea foam

    Waves can be block animation. sound attached to said blocks. sea foam could be a particle animation. on top of the blocks. I don't have a good example currently.
