      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. Render Bettur

    Actually powersuits renders in a different fasion than what I'm thinking of, the way chests are rendered isliterally making sort of a chest "mob" and stuffing it into the the block. Power suits actually does the kind of rendering a lot of console and higher res games do things, if the center of the item goes out of the camera bounds, the item stops rendering on that screen. Kind of like the BMW mod as well, it's a different form of rendering, and one I don't really care for, especially for minecraft. Well I noticed the bug in 76. bearing in mind that I also posted this, even if just, before 77 landed.
  2. Casted Tools and Sharpening

    IM Professional Opinion, Casted tools should need extra working but nothing too complicated, a whetstone would be idea to sharpen most tools.
  3. Wood Working/Carpentry Table

    I rather like the scribing table, I'd hate to see it go. And I advocate metal nails so botched up alloys can be used for something pretty generic, and just as a touch necessary tech to balance things out so you can't jump into wood working in the stone age, TFC is about believability not realism, so a generic metal nail works to make it so you need to have advanced toa metal age to begin advanced woodworking, which I do believe fits a sort of anthropological history of technology, which is what Dunk&Bioxx have been going along for the most part. And ECC, early pre-metal age adhesives were mostly waxes, honeys, mud and other "sticky" substances, glue is a relatively recent invention, as I and I'm sure Dunk has mentioned countless times before, it's believability not realism.
  4. Wood Working/Carpentry Table

    I kinda feel like the Crafting table is a nuisance to deal with and is pretty easily an almost alien item in most of TFC, and I would think it entirely plausible to replace it with a special crafting bench like a carpentry table, based on plans instead of the 3x3 crafting grid. Here are some screens of possible plan recipes for various items made of wood. Door Fencing Fence Gate Stairs Barrels Basic Table(to make things like a metallurgy table, or just decoration) Bed Base(for another suggestion) To counter not having a writing desk to make the plans to make a writing desk, lol, you'd write your first plans on some raw stone, right click some paper on the stone with a feather in your hotbar and you get a similar, or the same plans UI.And another thing to make it so you're not just slapping random planks together with apparently your hand sweat as the only adhesive, you could make a generic metal nail, made of any meltable metal poured into a "nail" tool mould, which would make 24-48 nails per mould or per 100 units of liquid metal. Each recipe would have it's own relative nail/plankrequirements.
  5. Custom Render - Firepit

    good idea, and I would think it fairly easy especially with all the mods lately using non-standard model rendering, basically what chests are, a block with more of an entity model inside it.
  6. snow stays in the air

    I don't think bioxx messed with snow at all. Might be a vanilla bug, ish
  7. Hafts and Bones

    it's a bit silly to make several different ID's for one item, but the idea of having to refine a handle for your tools is a nice idea, maybe make a few different handles, a cheap bundle of sticks, a crude handle, a good handle,an exquisite handle etc. and some metalsrequire specific levels of handles, stone tools can be fit onto bundles, bronze/copper can have crude handles, iron/steel have good, bluesteel/redsteel need exquisite, it's be a small addition and a slightly better use for the sheer mass of sticks one can accumulate tree farming.
  8. Casted Tools and Sharpening

    Seems rather counter productive, heating and cooling metal in quick succession causes it to become brittle, which makes it break easier. and technically pickaxes are sharp tools. I agree wholly that a grinding stone should be a thing, and it should be made so things like swords get sharper but lose durability because you're grinding away the tools material, so you could make a really sharp sword that breaks faster, or a rather dull blade which will last you much longer. Weighted tools should get tool weights, just stone or heavy metal rings to go close to the center of the tool heads mass, giving it more kick but also causing it to break faster. Equally thinks like shovels and axes should work the same way, the more you refine them the faster or stronger theyare, but they break faster.
  9. [Request] Sphax texture pack

    Would it be possible for a 32-64x version, I like sphax but 128x+ causes significant performance issues for me.
  10. Render Bettur

    Just wondering why armour is still a flat second skin, a mod that I recall dropping when 1.3.2 landed used an asset native to forge to make armour have 3D-ness. Mine and Blade, the infamous dual wielding mod, added a special set of armour called knights armour, the helmet of which included a full on Plume which was easily I'd say another helmet tall, not to mention 3D That aside I have also noticed that the weird bug when you place 3D items like barrels & bellows against blocks the sides facing a block have a tendency to not render at all. That is all.
  11. Chicken poop

    It's not a bad idea, having animals produce manure. But I'd have to say that fertilizer should have perhaps only 1 soil nutrient that it replenishes, so that you can only produce a certain kind of food year round and not a whole panoply of crops. I'd say small low nutrient value crops like bell peppers, and maybeanimals produce less feces in the winter (kind of a hibernation thing). Maybe ontop of that you could make a composter, just a wooden box to fill with a bunch of decomposable items to produce another kind of fertilizer. And maybe as a balance fertilizers only boost the maximumnutrients in the soil, rather than directly increasing the available nutrients it gives extra nutrients that will let crops grow slightly faster.
  12. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    The bloomery could do a better explanation, I still don't quite understand it any more than it smelts ores en masse, I get a vague feeling of inefficiency using it, but all the wiki says is a rough 1:1 ratio of ore to charcoal is the most efficient, but dropping in say 8 ores and 8 charcoal isn't 1:1 in the bloomery GUI. Dual ores are also very strange, and there's no mention of them on the wiki other than on the ore page mentioning that two different metals come from one ore.
  13. Jewl Crafting

    I just thought themods gems should get some more use, at the least have a way to work the gems into the next size up or down, or maybe even process them into ingots or something for the purpose of condensing them all into a singular form for storage and maybe refinement.
  14. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    The whole of the wiki could use an update, a lot of general information is either out of date or not explained very well. Such as the protection meter, I don't quite understand what "spawn protection" means in this case, does it mean hostile mobs don't spawn in an area? or does it mean that you have an area of land that gets the same kind of protection as default spawn on servers? There are a good portion of the pages with equally ambiguous information.
  15. Sluice bug

    I get that bug even if I keep the sluice chunks loaded. (waiting for your first ingot tends to impede all other progress)
