      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. I'm not the owner, I just posted the thread. Also, mhwrestler is mad Kittychanley: Why did you remove that screenshot?
  2. BREAKING NEWS: Server is currently running DOWN
  3. POOTISCRAFT anything goes TFC server. Rules: #1. There are no rules. IP Address: 73.34.133.18:25565 Server is currently hosted on a personal computer. More dedicated hosting coming soon. Note: Expect shitty uptime for the time being due to the above
  4. ---- nah, it was clearly his sister on his account saying dumb stuff. Clearly the real Hntrofdmnds would say dumb stuff.
  5. Blast furnace balancing

    Just to be clear, I am playing multiplayer and still have these objections.
  6. Blast furnace balancing

    The new requirements for blast furnace chimneys seems to me to be a bit excessive. Metal sheets in particular seem like a quite arbitrary requirement, as from a realistic standpoint they'd only increase heat conduction from the furnace. This doesn't seem believable and it irritates me. The same point can be said about the construction of the furnace block itself, or even the bloomery, in that a refractory ceramic would actually be used rather than the metal sheets, which are forced in order to enforce a linear metal progression. I should also like to note that graphite really isn't used as a part of fireclay. Kaolinite group clay without additive is what's generally referred to as 'fireclay'. In general I feel that constructing the furnace has been made rather arbitrarily difficult. Balance-wise, I'd rather be spending the bulk of my effort in designing structures and getting food (which is a bit trivial at this point, even with food decay) rather than smithing out the 40 (80 ingots worth!) iron sheets needed for a modest 2-block high blast furnace. If steel production should be made difficult, more focus should be put on making minerals (ore) rarer and/or more challenging to extract. Thoughts?

    I agree with zyke (ign: mossman1223)
  9. Ideas about food preservation.

    I'm particularly excited for sauerkraut. Also, very important to note: Contrary to what some may believe, vinegar is in no way involved in the preparation of sauerkraut. To make sauerkraut, you shred cabbage and pack it with salt. Simple as that.
  10. More nuances for the stone-age

    This is going to read like a bit of a wishlist but I would feel better for having my ideas voiced here, so here goes. So right now the stone age isn't as interesting or nuanced as I think it could be. Why not have the most basic weapon be a pointed stick? We could sharpen our sticks by either scraping it with a stone or whittling it with a suitable tool. The latter should produce superior results than the former, but I'm not sure how it would be best to represent this in-game. This would of course be neccessary if stone tools were to be made less trivial to produce. One could potentially improve on the pointed stick slightly by "fire-hardening" it, which involves lightly toasting the point over a flame. This would Starting and maintaining your first fire should be a bit of a challenge. Anyone here ever seen the 1981 film "Quest for Fire"? As you can probably imagine the entire plot of that film revolves around the struggle to control fire by a group of early humans. It's not a trivial thing to do. My idea would be to have a mechanic that made initially starting a fire difficult, so that it would incentivize keeping your current fire alive, either by way of a continuous merry blaze or a few embers smouldering in a gourd packed with straw (As is historically faithful). Chipped (knapped) stone tools are only possible from rocks with conchoidal fracture (meaning they do not break into cleavage planes), such as quartzite, basalt, and significantly, obsidian and Chert AKA flint. Obtaining good quality stone tools should not be trivial either. Another major pain pre-metal is inventory management, that being, there's no easy chest substitute other than clay vessels, which can be frustrating to manage in any quantity. As many others on this forum have suggested, some variation on a low-capacity container made from basketry would be believable. A low-capacity ceramic equivalent to a barrel is also neccessary - mainly because treating leather and preserving food should be quite possible for those with stone tools. I should also note that just beating rawhides with a rock or other tool would not be totally ineffective at softening it. On the topic of leather, the ability to craft basic clothing/armor out of rawhide would be quite believable. This guy probably didn't have a copper saw and a nice tanning barrel - just some goat skins and maybe a stone cutting tool.

    So why couldn't you write in a cap on metal nuggets found in a specific sediment bed or stream, that's actually coorelated with nearby mineral deposits?
  12. ----------------------------- The reason it's not believable for me here is that the metal is the only material you can make these objects from. Ceramic refractory materials (as simple as clay) would be the obvious prefered material - and they're not used for the purpose of imposing a rather arbitrary progression limitation.
  13. I'm posting this here because I agree with PaoloEmilio.

    Do you plan on updating this for b.78?
