      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. TFC1 1.12+ port

    Just want to say that I think a 1.12 port for TFC would be HUGE. It would enable modpacks to really open up their possibilities, and I think it's going to be really popular. Don't give up!
  2. [0.79.?] Progression flowchart

    hey, you sure can! I went and tried, thanks to your question. As I got set up I had a flash of memory - I'd done this before, a couple years back. I remembered why I thought you couldn't do it was that tannin would not be produced in the vessel. However, now I realize I probably used one of the woods that doesn't make tannin, but for all this time I thought it wasn't possible. Thanks!
  3. [0.79.?] Progression flowchart

    Unless I'm mistaken, making leather requires at least 3 barrels. This flowchart makes it look like leather and bellows can be had without metal tools, which leads to barrels. I suggest moving leather to under barrel technology.
  4. Your chisel creations!!

    I know what I'm seeing in that internal shot is one kind of wood plank inside another wood plank. It's flush, it's not a cutout, which is what I would expect. What I don't know is how that is possible. I haven't been able to reproduce it. Any tips?

    Thank you, for taking time out of your precious day to butt into a topic that you were in no way involved, and had no need to get involved in, just to insult me and re-open an argument that had already been resolved. Glad I could help.
  6. Quote format

    I have a request for the forums. When you quote someone there is virtually nothing in the formatting of the quote that separates it from the body of the post. the quotes begin and end in this section, and the only thing you need out of quotes is for them to be obviously separated. Indent them, put them in a box, whatever, but it's too hard to read topics with the formatting being used currently.
  7. taro8, I have to admit to struggling with the same questions. I often will start a project, work hard on it until it's done, then wonder why I bothered. Minecraft is more of a toy than a game - you can do things with it, but why you do the things and what things you do are up to you. It's kind of difficult sometimes to admit we're playing with toys when we load up Minecraft, but that's what we're doing. You can't win at playing with blocks in a sandbox, but you might do cool, fun things with it anyway (especially if your friends want to join you). And when you're done playing with a toy and want to do something else, that's okay too.

    Srgnoodles, think for a while on what would be acceptable content, in your narrowly-defined corner of the world, for a post about doing TFC in real life. Would digging a tunnel through stone be okay, or would you minge about how he didn't forge his own tools? If it's about cutting down a bunch of trees and replanting them, are you going to poop all over it because there's nothing about making charcoal? [edit for harshness] You could have encouraged someone in doing something they think is fun, and thanked him for taking the time to share it with us, but instead you violated Wheaton's Law, which really is the least anyone asks of you online.
  9. Questions By Vagabond

    Animals do not produce offspring at all unless you force breeding to happen with fodder. So if you hunt all the animals in an area, they are all gone. To get more you will have to travel or feed some to induce breeding. Squid are the only exception; squid simply spawn at random, just as they do in vanilla MC. I don't know about sluices scanning above themselves, but my guess is they do.
  10. Tin & Zinc Bar Textures.

    Yeah, because this is a texture you're talking about, this is in your power to change yourself. Change the textures for your game. Take some screenshots. Show us that the change is better. Tell others how to do the same so we can see for ourselves. I'm fairly confident that would have an impact on the game. Saying, "You did it wrong" has a lot less chance of impacting the game.

    I totally agree with Xechon. Each minute you play advances time in the game by over an hour (72 minutes). If you spend 20 seconds looking at something, thinking about your plans and what you want to do with it, or looking in a chest for an item and thinking about what you have to make to get what you need, that 20 seconds equates to an average lunch break for most people who work for a living. That's where your Steve is getting his rest, and if you play like me he gets a lot of it.
  12. Tin & Zinc Bar Textures.

    The important thing is, can you tell them apart? If one was silvery and the other plaid that would work too. If it bothers you, make some textures and provide them to us so we can try them out. If they're good enough I suppose there's a chance Dunk might consider using them for the official download. But honestly? You'd have to be really pedantic to care, and pedantry doesn't make a game better.

    The seed I used was Shackleton.
  14. How many ages are their currently?

    Eventually everyone gets to this point in any sandbox game. You get to it pretty fast in Minecraft, then you either make new goals for yourself, start over, put it down, or jump into a mod like TFC. But it all boils down to "get stuff to make getting stuff easier and do things".
  15. Post your TFcraft Pictures

    Generally a "chunk error" refers to a part of the world that won't load. This is a worldgen error in which a chunk (from the looks of it) is generated without data about the surrounding terrain. I find they are not uncommon, but almost always unsightly.
