      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. Dynamic alloys everyone asks for ..

    My takeaway from the video was the User Interface. Or lack of one, I really enjoyed how you could just interact with the world without a GUI poping up, all of the time..
  2. Help finding graphite

    Could you share how you got the data for that graph? While I don't want to cheat to find graphite, I am rather curious. Also a large part of my map is ocean, and I am starting to think I may need to be excavating under there..
  3. Quick Reference (Ores and Minerals)

    Thank you! This has been a great help.
  4. Impressions from a new player.

    I am new to TerrafirmaCraft, so I know I might have a few misconceptions.. I did feel that I should share my first impressions. First, I have been looking for a better survival experience then what vanilla Minecraft offers.I became enamored with TFC, via the let's play seriesIcy and Friends Play: Terrafirmacraft. IcyNewYear, sold me on checking out TFC, his video's gave me a good idea what to expect. Although there have been a few things that still managed to surprise me. First the world feels so empty, there are hardly any animals. Nor do I find any preexisting structures. Compared games like "Don't Starve", the world feels so very barren.. It's been like a year and I have seen only like 4 pigs, and 3 chickens. I've traveled almost a kilometer around my homebase, I still haven't found any surface Bismuth, and only traces of Tin not enough to make a bronze anvil. I have multiple mines that go deeper than level 60, and found Iron Ores and lots of copper and zinc. Yes, I have sluices; I am building a grid of sluices to check an area, for Bismuth. I even have underground sluices to look for Tin. While I enjoy the exploration aspect of the game, I do wish there was more to find then just more rocks.. Second, how on one hand the developers don't want exact numbers, but then give me a clock / calendar that tells me the exact time. I just find it odd.. that's all. Lastly,I am puzzled with the talk that this mod needs a combat revamp. What I wish for was roads that gave me a movement bonus, like in"Don't Starve". I have mines all over the place and no reason to build roads connecting them.. With theamountof travel end up doing. Would be godsent if I was a little bit faster on planks and cobblestone. There is a lot to the game that I really enjoy that I didn't talk about. I did want to start a discussion on these topics. I already see that finding ores has been discussed, and I am curious about the ore distribution. Soon I will be at the point where it's just not fun looking for ore that just doesn't seem to exists on my map.
  5. Tool reworking

    I would love a system like Tinker's Construct. However being that it's random as to what gems you get. Well, Gems would need to be updated, so that you could seek them out..
  6. Gems?

    Part of the problem is that there is no logic as to what gems you get. I can't go mining for Rubies.. I just have to hope someday I will find a Flawless Ruby. It's hard to build sometime that requires random inputs..
  7. Quick Reference (Ores and Minerals)

    Hate to bother you, but could you export this as a PDF? I'm on linux, and it's not displaying right.
  8. [TFC 0.77.21] SteamAge v0.3.0

    Mmm, brainstorming challenges?Well, part of the fun is in seeing what you can build. I do enjoy that, however I know that's not for everyone.I do agree that it would be awesome if a new threat or territory was opened up by these tools. Hmm, what if we could use Steam power to pump water into the lava pools, thus letting us mine into the nether?..
  9. Combat Revamp Opinion Poll

    Seems reasonable, Player A was stupid, he should have worn the appropriate gear for the situation.The Bow was king of battlefield. It's only because of western obsession with knights and swords that we feel that somehow ranged combat isn't fair. If anything should be added to even up the odds is a changing attack, where pushback from taking damage is ignored. Hmm, or maybe pushback from standard arrow heads, should be removed.Look at this scenario in another light, You player B don't yet have lots of metal. How else are you going to take on someone fully armored up? If he is dumb enough to come out in the open, where you can run away. Why wouldn't hit and run be your tactics?
