      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. Do you check the forum everyday?

    Its rather saddening to see what this has become, I think it has something to do with Bioxx and the devs being busy with everything.
  2. Apiculture in TFC2?

    I actually keep bees,and bee swarms are actually very docile,you can stick your hand in them and stuff.
  3. IRL skills/hobbies that are in TFC discussion

    pottery and wood carving?could i see some of your works?i think wood carving and pottery is neat but i lack any form of art and style
  4. Im not sure if this is considered off topic,if it is i apologize to the staff and they may take it to off topic with my former permission. But,who here has skills in real life that are in TFC such as blacksmithing/metal urgy,animal hubandry,stone knapping,leather working,alchohol brewers, farming,hunting,butchering and so on? I will start,i am into farming,blacksmithing/metal urgy,animal husbandry,butchery,and into hunting somewhat.If i didnt mention it but its in TFC go ahead and share!I would love to see other peoples hobbies and skills. EDIT:If you have any works that you have made,feel free to show it off on here!
  5. Apiculture in TFC2?

    This what i usually agree with many suggestions in the forums,because everyone has different opinions about them,add ons give the player a choice to choose what they want and dont.
  6. Apiculture in TFC2?

    there was a lot of things i didnt touch on about the bees,i am a bee keeper IRL actually.i just wanted some light shown about bees in tfc,but thank you for feed back!
  7. Apiculture in TFC2?

    Have you read, understood, and followed all of the rules listed in large text at the top of the suggestions forum?(Yes/No):Yes. Answering "no" to the above question will result in your post being deleted. Honey bees might be nothing significant in TFC2 if they are added,but would be fairly interesting to get into. Why should honeybees be added? To give the player something of a challenge to do in tfc if they are bored,give honey in a way to add to the flavor of food to help it suit your players taste,say your player likes sweeter foods but has bitter food so they use honey to counter it,it could also give a way to increase fertility of certain plants and give you a more bountiful harvest,it could also give honey in a way of food preservation for fruits(fact of the day:honey never spoils,they have found still edible honey in a egyptian tomb),the honey could be the start of a medicine system in tfc,as it is a natural anti biotic, and also raise awareness about honeybees and there fragile state of today. What should honeybees be like if they were added to tfc? -Hives at the start of the game will be in hollow trees in temperate biomes,and near the equator they could be in holes and in trees with out much cover. -a beginning player can use smoke to evacuate the bees and take the beeswax and honeycomb,making it a delicacy and a somewhat of a food source of food that never spoils,this is easy to do,but it will destroy the bee colony and they will die.the player can also have a farm with flowering species and the bees will increase your harvest,and will do better as well. -Later in the game the player can possibily make use of skeps that could be made of clay and straw,and could be made with a weaving system later on if ever implemented.The player can collect swarms(could be done by shaking into burlap bag,swarms are docile usually), which are seeds of a existing hive and put it in these skeps,or have a small chance of them moving in depending on distance from a existing beehive.But,again,harvesting bees from these skeps result in destroying the entire hive.these skeps are also more likely to swarm due to being in a small space.hollowed logs could also be utilized like skeps. -once the player has wood working tools,they can start building top bar hives and can have a frame management system,the pros of this means theres more sustainability with the honey bees with movable combs on bars.but a con is its more complicated than just burning the bees out,you must leave some honey with the bees in colder climates to survive the winter. -the player could wear thick clothing and primitive veils to protect themselves from bees,and with the player being around 1000 HP,a single bee sting could take 1 HP,and with it taking over a thousand bee stings for it to be life threatening,it plays perfectly in,but it could suck if they have an 200 HP player. -The bees could look like what they are in forestry,or atleast in that way,it would be rediculous for them to be mobs,there are over 40,000 bees in a hive.you could see bees as an ambience feature(possibly we could have other insects as an ambience feature as well?that might be a later topi of mine.)if you see bees coming after you and bouncing off you,that means you are considered a threat and you will take random 1 HP damage that will increase in frequency unless your wearing a suit,and will leave you alone after you go a certain distance. I hope i have made a good thesis for implementing honey bees in TFC2 and hope the developers will look into it.
  8. Resuggesting topics from TFC1

    Thank you kitty,i appreciate the quick response time,i shall now reform a new and improved idea of apiculture for TFC2,i dont wanna get in trouble with rule 5 again
  9. Resuggesting topics from TFC1

    Would it be within the rules to say,bring back up a forgotten topic in the TFC 1 suggestions that might have a fighting chance of being implemented in TFC2? Or would this be under rule #5?I apologize if i have overlooked the rules.(this would have been better but my computer suddenly restarted unexpectedly and i lost 2 good paragraphs of stuff and i am done with patience because of that )
  10. Regional Difficulty

    okay this debate is already over,im realllyyyy late,but i have another idea,if we could control the spawn point like someone said earlier,maybe with these tougher monsters roaaming about the more you trek east or west,it could give the players an limit or on how far they could go,this could be good or bad depending on peoples opinions though,but its possible for tfc2,but i believe this would be better as a add on of some sort,and let people choose if they want it.
  11. Apiculture ...* And more soon *...

    People have harvested honey from beehives for around 15,000 years,so why not add it into terrafirmacraft. I dont see really any specialty about this other than sending a message about honeybees starting to die out(just like how you made jungle trees sterile) and maybe a way of pollination of crops and also to get honey and wax(candlemaking?) too. How you first work with bees is you smoke them out of there homes(trying to harvest them early game is suicidal) and then you take the comb out,though you just killed about 40,000 lives in the process,later on in the game you can start trying to make them your temporary friends making fixed comb hives for them,such as hollow logs,skeps, and clay pots. And then you figure out a way to make top bar hives so you can keep them with you for a little while longer and you dont kill them. The mechanics of the typical bee hive are: -They have 3 different kinds of bees,the queen,who is the most important and the only egg layer,the drone that mates with the queen,and the worker,who are the ones that do all the work,such as stinging you,making honey,and building combs -When the hive thinks they are doing fabulous(or there too over crowded,but that can be fixed only with the topbar hives they will start building swarm cells,which are cells with queen bees in it that is going to take over the colony,while the old queen flies away with most of the honey and a handful(more like enough to fill a basket ball) of the bees and fly out to find a place to make a colony,but you can take action and take these bees and put them in a bee hive of your own,or let them come to it more like. -If you live in a place that isnt warm all year around,you have to leave some honey for your bees to survive the winter or else they will die out. -Bee hives will slowly build up and get stronger if you let them do what ever,which means keeping them in top bar hives are more profitable. There are quite a few more things i could say about apiculture,but im kinda doubting they will make it to TFC2 because it can be considered pointless pretty much.The only reason im putting this suggestion up is to help raise honeybee awareness,as it is predicted they will not survive in the current conditions they are in,meaning that 1/3 or 2/3 of the populations food in america.Feed back is appreciated guys and mind my dull humor as well too
  12. Two Friends looking for a small server.

  13. animals breed naturally

    animals can die of starvation,and im also saying the predators will breed as well,keeping the population down,but its unbelievable that a species has to depend on steve to actually survive,and must love him before they love each other
  14. animals breed naturally

    This might make TFC more believable than having them pop up out of no where,also i find it rediculous to have the sheep like me before they like eachother
