      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."

  6. Ask the person below you

    In all honesty, my dream demise would simply be of old age at home with my family members and close friends nearby so that I can give them a speech about life, not to screw things up, and to challenge them to enjoy life more than I did. Enough of such a grim topic! What is your weapon of choice?! (real or fake/anime do count as weapons)
  7. Rings and things: Chainmail armor and related items

    The only actual block would be the ring jig, the rest would simply be inventory items. As for the coils, the devs could probably use them later on for improved beds/something that uses coils, or something of the sort, but I do agree with you because if this was implemented it'd kinda be a waste if it were just the coils for chainmail. Irl the process is long and boring, but in the game it'd be quicker and the only thing that would be difficult is figuring out how many rings you'd really need (from my point of view). I definitely agree with the bronze and iron chain being better than leather, because copper is very easy to break. Historically, they did actually have a sort of chainmail trousers, all they were was a skirt of chain that was held onto the body by tying it onto a belt. The use of the chain skirt was to protect the groin area in plate-mail armor because that area wasn't strongly armored and needed protection. Yeah, if this was implemented it'd need some balancing and refurbishing...
  8. My eyes are bad, hence the font size. Post of inspiration: For the lazy: This suggestion is for adding the following: metal wire, a ring jig, metal rings, chains, chainmail, chainmail padding, and improved armor to the game. For the rest that like reading, let's get started! Metal Wire: To make the wire necessary you'll need your trusty anvil and you basically hammer the wire out while it's stillmalleableuntil the smithing arrows line up and what results from the smithing would be 10 lengths of wire. Ring Jig and rings: To make a ring jig: you'll need 3 wooden planks(P), 2 wooden lumber(L), and a stick(S). S L O O L O P P P You would then right-click it with wire in hand and coils of the metal wire will drop while 1 wire is removed from your inventory. Next, simply put the coil and a pair of shears in the crafting interface and you will get 64 rings (split into 4 stacks) of the metal you used from that one wire. Chains: You now have a pile of rings in your inventory that you can heat all together to working temp, then put them all into the crafting interface and fill the entire thing with the heated rings to get an unfinished chain square that you can then take to the anvil and hammer to completion. Then, you will do that again with the squares to get a sheet of mail (Total cost for a sheet is 81 rings and the fuel used). Sheets and squares of mail will be used for armor, for a moremiscellaneoususe you can make them into unfinished lengths of chain by simply taking the unfinished rings and put them into a line in the crafting interface to get a length of wire (you can combine them up to a length of 30) for enhanced storage as well as a possible currency for role-players. Inspiration for currency use: Chainmail armor: A full set of chainmail armor comes in 3 pieces (made of chain, not the padding) consisting of the coif (hood), hauberk (torso and leg armor), and chausses (shin guards). Here are the following patterns for the chainmail: Chain Square (SQ) | Chain sheet (SH) | Nothing (O) Chainmail Coif: 99 rings to make it O SH O SQ O SQ O O O Chainmail Hauberk: 567 rings to make it SH O SH SH SH SH SH O SH Chainmail Chausses: 324 rings to make it SH O SH SH O SH O O O Chainmail Padding: Now, the padding is very simple to produce, just put 2 cloth in the crafting interface to get padding pieces. Then, do the same pattern of the armor you are trying to pad for the padding itself. EXAMPLE: To make padding for the Chausses, use the same pattern that you would with the chains with padding pieces regardless of if the chain items were sheets or squares. Once the padding is made, just put it and the appropriate chainmail armor piece in the crafting interface and now you have functional armor. Improved Armor: To make improved armor, just take a chainmail hauberk, the hauberk's padding, a chestplate, and the legplates and you now have a set of improved armor. Keep in mind that the metal for the chainmail and the plate armor have to be the same kind, otherwise you're just being silly. Armor Stats: In reality, chainmail was made for deterring slashing damage, and it was weak to crushing and stabbing based attacks. With this in mind, its stats would be around this area. Also, if I did my math correctly, the metal required to make a suit of chainmail is 1.5 ingots. That alone will make chainmail a very cheap armor to produce for players, so there will be some balancing that must be done if this is included. Those that know armor production will realize "HEY! It takes WAY much more rings than that to make a suit of the stuff!" and they are right because: A: it doesn't have to be realistic, just has to be believable to work and B: I also make the stuff,and it is a very long and tedious process. I would like to thank everyone who decided to read this post as well. Have a good day!

    I just came back to tfc actually, the coming two weeks are going to be sketchy for me because they are the finals weeks for my college, but I'll see if I can help out with this. btw, I am glad to see that you are back as well Paolo!

    Making TFC only usable with an Oculus Rift for the camera, a wired hammer to break and place blocks, and of course a joystick thing for moving your character.
  12. Ask the person below you

    Nine hours if I understood that correctly If you had to emigrate to any European country, what one would you go to?
