      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. Vanilla vs TFC battle

    Maybe the victory of TFC Steve over the broken diamond armour. Or continuing the theme of the first one you did showing the bloomery and anvil you could have Steve working a loom, though not sure that'll be as epic. Something, something epic bear battle.
  2. Vanilla vs TFC battle

    Amazing! And TFC of course no question. Did I mention that they're amazing hope to see another one soon...maybe?
  3. Rivendale A TFC Town

    Wow fantastic house, I agree with Topminator it needs some neighbors.
  4. Single player world gallery

    Looks awesome! Gotta love the colour palette options with TFC. Something about seeing the world covered in snow is so pretty, although after looking through the pics I think my toes are cold now.
  5. My Survival World

    Whelp, WoW is a trap. (Also I got a job! Huzzah!) So haven't been in the world in a while. What I found was that 1 of my small projects wasn't complete the 2nd not even started and I hadn't even completed my iron anvil. With all the updates I'm behind not to mention a ton of awesome addons that are new thinking I'll just start over. Still really want to complete the buildings so I may yet do that in a future world but in the meantime here are a handful of screen shots of what I got done in SSP and 1 that I had planned out in creative.(White Elm needs more love ) Miner Shack Small Project 1 Missing the stone I wanted for this one (chimney) and the dirt I used in the creative picture I don't have in SSP. Hardest part was placement since It's above my copper mine which I had already started so placed the wall to line up (hopefully) with where I wanted the access shaft to be. Exterior Complete pic from Creative The Inspiration by Charley Dameron Big Project aka why you hate white elm? Still planning to build this one, guess this can be a teaser Rough Design from Creative Only a handful of pics and I know someone wanted to see some interior pics of the blacksmith I might hop into the creative world and put together a "What I would have done". So I guess this is it time to update and begin anew. (Didn't even finish the barn but man was I happy when I found those reeds.)
  6. My Survival World

    Of course, I myself think I first saw that kinda of stone path in one of Spud Gunn's let plays. Yeah it is a balancing act with the stone work, it helps that the building uses only slabs or stairs no detailed blocks at all. Though the next big house uses tons of lumber which I think will be a problem and the small project makes use of a few detailed blocks but it's not all that close to these buildings so I don't think it'll be a problem.
  7. Pax East!

    I am jealous. lol Have max fun for those of us who can't go. ALL THE FUN TIMES!
  8. Once Again into the World. [Topic WoW]

    Woo *highfive* Sucked in by family. lol I logged on for a moment ended up just looking to see if Winter Veil had any new pets to try and collect. Gotta catch em' all! (It's a trap) Waiting for the sister to be online before actually jumping into WoD stuff. Soon~ Edit: Garrison is awesome, feel like that's going to suck me in. First dungeon was pretty quick and I really like the new loot system.
  9. animals breed naturally

    I'm pretty sure animals can't die of starvation and there is no guarantee that a predator will also spawn nearby. I don't disagreeing with the principal of the thing, wild animals should be able to breed in order to be believable/realistic however I simply feel/think it will break the game. To princeofmadness, there is already a limit written into the vanilla code. The Disappearing Sheep See Kitty's posts. Edit: It just occurred to me you might mean to add a mechanic to allow animals to die of starvation, that would create other problems. What if you can't find grain? What if you just have very little grain, only enough to feed 1 animal? If you have a large farm how do you make sure you've actually feed all your animals? You could easily find yourself in a tough spot early game with as few as 2 animals. It's talked about here Animal Feeding Trough briefly I think. This sums up my thoughts on the matter of 'animal hunger' But that is a whole other topic.
  10. animals breed naturally

    I'm pretty sure this would in the end be a very bad idea. I recall the horse apocalypse where every female horse spawned pregnant I think even when born a female horse would be pregnant. Creating a lot of lag on servers. Horses everywhere. Your suggestion would multiple that ten-fold, in my SSP I have many wild animals in the area around me (Pigs/Wolves/Deer/Horses) Where 2 or 3 pigs become 8-12, then next year 20-60. (Assuming 1 female pig to start then a small litter of 8 pigs with half of them being female.) The game would become unplayable. As for the second point, I honestly like the additional game play mechanic adding another layer to animal care and maintenance.
  11. Whelp I hate/love my sister but yesterday she talked me into joining her for a return to Azeroth. (Why aren't scrolls of resurrection a thing anymore, pity.) So tonight I'll shall be patching, but thought I'd make a post see if anyone else has fallen into the new expansion/peer pressure trap. Played closed beta (Sister had gotten in let me muck around for a while.) Enjoyed it, bought it at release though quit after 3 months (We both did.) due to the fact I was also playing FFXI and I just didn't have time for 2 MMO's and FFXI had WAY more content at the time and WAY less bugs. lol Two years later we quit FFXI and found ourselves back in Azeroth and it's been an on again off again relationship ever since. Wrath is when we got into raiding and it was the best thing ever. With all the usual ups and downs. (Freaking drama) into Cata things began to fall apart. Sadly. Good times, good friends. I've already heard from her that a few of them still play so that'll be nice.
  12. Problem about making a TFC Server with mods

    Well might make your life easier to go back a step. Just set up a TFC server no other mods. Then from there you can add a mod and see if it causes problems. To Below Edit Wiki is your friend. If you want a Youtube type guide I'm sure you can search for one, just make sure it's not a ba-jillion years old. Something for build 78 I'd imagine would work fine. Edit again just in case, but if you do find a b78 Youtube vid be sure when actually putting a server together you get the versions of forge needed for whatever TFC version you are using.
  13. Hello I'm new to the forum.

    Greetings! Welcome to the board. I think Bunsan pretty much covered your questions. For me winter has never really posed a problem but I do so much exploring that first year, so in SSP I end up with so much food. Currently living at z-7800 so the temperature does fall below 0 but not for long, downside the summers are pretty hot so food decay is much faster. This. I think when I was exploring North looking for Douglas Fir it was easily 1200-1500 blocks before I saw a top layer rock change, but East I hit a new rock in 200 or less.
  14. Yes! They are glorious, thanks Kitty.
  15. The disappearing sheep

    Suddenly it makes sense. Yeah when it happened I figured there was a reason for it and had 2 other pigs and their litter so wasn't the end of the world.
