      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. Shields a defensive weapon

    People are overthinking this. We have the option now to mount objects on the player -see barrels. Mount a model off the left arm, change the block animation that already exists to use that arm/create basic block animation, add in when blocking with shield equipped then damage is reduced/blocked for durability. Now I know its not as simple as that, but the ideas being thrown around about hot bars etc are just over complication.
  2. Ceramic bowls - another tedium

    I agree it doesnt make sense, at the same time however it creates a real ongoing demand for pottery which previously was mostly fire and forget.
  3. [0.79.15] Rhodance's "HugBox" Server [Closing May 22]

    IGN: Vaelkyri Age: 30 Why this server?: Played on Rhos server a few times way back, never for long but during those times I found the server stable and the community positive and mature. Looking to try out the new build in MP and cant think of a better place. 2 sentence description of yourself/interests: Stubborn old coot who likes cheap scotch, expensive chocolate and cheesy power metal. Can skin a rabbit with my bare hands and at the same time discuss how the development of the Mongolian empire in the 13th century led to the evolution of the modern day capitalist middle class. Days are spent working in a plant nursery, spare time is spent as a leader in a well respected (if small) Australian planetside2 outfit.
  4. Version #: 79.7 SSP/SMP (Single/MultiPlayer): SMP Suggested Name: Armour stands, still borked. Suggested Category: Severe Description: Placing a sycamore armour stand places the item but does not remove from inventory, the number 147 appears in the chat window. Right clicking the armour stand that is placed shuts down the server. No crash logs avail client side, only server side. Have you deleted your config files and are still able to reproduce this bug?: Yes Do you have any mods other than Forge and TFC installed?: Yes If yes, which mods? Fastcraft link of the Crash Report:
  5. 3d models, yay, nay, addons?

    Soo, any chance of getting an addon pack assembled with the models? (notice the ladders have depth as well) as for the logs being fully accurate, that was the level of pedantry that killed the idea last time
  6. 3d models, yay, nay, addons?

    To save necroing up posts 6+ months old figured I start a new discussion purely on the possibility of 3d models- namely for objects such as the Firepit and Pottery items. Current state of affairs- Is it possible? Yes-(at least so I understand) Is it needed? Not really, the current system works Is it worthwhile? Personal preference, In my opinion the fidelity of a mod greatly enhances the immersion and believeability - looking at the quality of mods such as Ars Magica, Thuamcraft, even the little know Witchery mod the detailed models implemented for blocks and objects puts TFCs spinning sprites to shame. Pros: Increased fidelity, higher quality and more immersive experience. Cons: possibly some performance issues, Bioxx reportedly (according to Dunk) doesnt want them.(?) (personal note: the fact that things like ingot piles are modeled and other objects are sprites creates a very jarring discontinuity) That said- if they wouldn't go into base mod due to the creators dislike, would modelers and modders be interested in creating an addon to convert the entities into .obj's ?
  7. Custom Render - Firepit

    So. uh. Huge necro here, but did any progress ever get made on this?
  8. [0.79.15] Rhodance's "HugBox" Server [Closing May 22]

    Ah well, beta is beta
  10. Maize failure to grow offline.

    Just checking in, been planting quite a few different crops and rotating/allowing groud to lie fallow correctly. Despite my best efforts maize seems to fail to grow beyond 1st level when all other crops ripen normally. Not sure if its due to me being too far north (-14200) or if it is not correctly growing in unloaded chunks while I am offline.
  11. Fishing

    Just throwing this out there, IRL the best way to to catch crayfish (fresh and saltwater) is with rotten meat. Maybe some kind of fishtrap crafted with sticks+ yarn in a 3x3 and baited with rotten flsh/raw meat that can be placed in water ?
  12. Barrels, help!

    Yep process is: Rawhide into limewater = soaked hide Soaked hide + kife = scrapped hide. Scrapped hide into water = prepared hide. Prepared hide +into Tanin = leather.
  13. Idea! firepits!

    3d model would be nice.
