      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. [0.2.4] TFC2 Prerelease

    It's been a long time since I've really done anything in Minecraft, can someone remind me how to install this?
  2. Granaries

    Might be an interesting way to tie a granary mechanic with malting grain. Maybe have a single layer of grain near a block of water.
  3. Implications of removing the crafting bench

    Yeah, I forgot about other mods. I want to be a carpenter in TFC dagnabbit
  4. I've always felt the the crafting bench is a weird holdout from vanilla minecraft that still hung around in TFC1. And as that game went on they took more and more away from making it useful. I'm wondering if it's possible, or practical, to just remove it entirely. Maybe the crafting square in inventory could be expanded slot by slot as a leveling system. Or each item would need a more involved way to craft it, as it is with tools, armor, food, alcohol, pottery, thread, torches, and so on. Any ways, is such an idea even desirable? I'd really like to hear what everyone thinks.
  5. Food + Taste + Hunger

    If I could make one change I would remove diary as a requirement. In several cultures around the world people just didn't drink milk past childhood. It could probably be reclassified as carb + protein + fat.
  6. Mobs for TFC2

    Thanks for the reply. I felt really bad after I gave my input. It almost felt like I was telling the developers what to do. I can imagine comments from the peanut gallery can get annoying. I'm sure everything I said was already a thought in someone's head. Don't take anything I say with any more than is actually helpful.
  7. Crafting Table 2.0

    Important things to consider are what the crafting bench is used for in TFC. Most things are made on a specialized block, like an anvil or a barrel. What remains are Wood items. So it might be interesting to just rework the crafting bench into an anvil-like mechanic. IMO it's better if the player doesn't need to memorize 200 different recipes. I also like the idea of consumables, like nails.
  8. Mobs for TFC2

    I'm of the mind that simpler is better, and I'm not really a fan of several of the mob models. Default mobs seem to try to use the least amount of boxes possible: One for the head, one for the nose, one for each ear, the raccoons head, for instance doesn't look like it belongs in the game with 3 boxes defining the head and two boxes for the nose. The weasel is better, but the nose still looks weird with a poly at a 45 degree angle, The rat looks really cute, and is closest to the aesthetic of the base game. The gorilla could probably do more with less. A box for the head, a box for the muzzle, and I think it looks a little on the skinny side, arms could be much larger. The giraffe, though its more complex than the others, is all right. A larger mob can usemore polys and fit into the game because it keeps a similar polygon per unit volume density, though the hair on the tail might look better as two alpha textured surfaced than a 3d box.
  9. Days are so short in TFC

    I prefer to play this game on peaceful. There is enough challenge without being hunted by monsters. This way this time of day doesn't matter so much.
  10. Nutrition: picking up where meals left off

    It makes sense that eggs are protein, because they are so high in it. I don't get why dairy is a requirement though. Many cultures around the world don't drink milk past infancy. It is hardly a dietary requirement. Milk should be counted as a protein, and the same with cheese. If possible they could act as both a protein and a carbohydrate, maybe even a bit of fat. Though the way food is structured now that wouldn't work, because there is no fat bar.
  11. There are a lot more videos up on my play through, not going to post them all here, but here is a link to the playlist:
  12. Metric vs imperial

    You could just keep it unitless and use a number that works well.
  13. B78 Pre-Release Live-Steam 04/08/14!!!

    Wow it's really happening. I'm hyped to 11
  14. simple food

    I think that it may be a good idea later down the road to nerf getting seeds from tall grass. It's already useful enough for getting straw. If more gatherable foods are added, like the ones suggested in this thread the plan would be more viable. I would definately like to see more plant based mechanics like gathering, brewing and herbalism in this mod. maybe for build 79, fingers crossed.
  15. Bonfires

    The problem with that is you can't cook on a bonfire. It's too hot to get close to, let alone cook on. If you think there should be an option to cook more than one food item at once, I would go with a stove or an oven.
