      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. Your server's motd sais: Private Server, Friends Only! Your server currently has a whitelist enabled preventing people from joining. Is there a whitelist application people can use to gain access? Or is your motd correct and are you only allowing friends? If so, would you mind changing your topic to reflect this?
  2. Blu Empire [TFC Beta]

    I'm sorry to hear that. Perhaps you can try again when TFC 2 comes out?
  3. Glad to see you're back. Good luck with the server
  4. Sorry to hear that. I hope you'll consider running new servers in the future. We ban people who advertise on our servers. There's only so many alts they can come up with so keep banning and they'll give up eventually. Using MCBans also really helps. We only have to ban a player once to get rid of that player on all of our servers. As for numbers, we've banned about 25% of players on our servers for breaking our rules. So be prepared to ban a ton of players and you'll end up with a server that offers a save environment for players. We have a controversial no swearing rule. As it turns out enforcing that weeds out bad players pretty quickly. As for protection. Forge sucks to run servers. As a platform it's just not suited to do any of the server admin stuff required to run a public server because there are no mods that even come close to what Bukkit plugins have to offer. Which is part of why we, and other server owners, user things like Cauldron, plugins and command blocks. Sure it takes a lot of work to set up, especially given that TFC is special. But once done it's fairly stable and reliable. Anyway, good luck and I hope you will be back with new and interesting servers in the future.
  5. Cauldron does not cause world corruption. We've been running Cauldron with plugin based protection for years and have served over 15000 individual players without world corruption caused by Cauldron. We have had TFC eat up chunks here and there in the past, but those were all directly related to TFC bugs which we had to report anonymously. The only people who have a problem with Cauldron seem to be the TFC devs because they refuse to support non-Forge servers.
  6. This has been requested many times. Enjoy TFC + anarchy, guys.
  7. Lockette uses item IDs, Towny uses ore dictionary names. It's pretty simple to set up protection for all TFC blocks and items. Just put everything you want to protect into a few plugin lists, TFC machines, chests, doors, armor stands, ingot piles, etc. Just don't put everything in a list since that will create problems which you probably don't want
  8. TFC ( Small Server to have fun on [Whitelist]

    LizardWithATopHat hasn't been online since 17 Dec 2016 since before the first application was filed. Has anybody been whitelisted on this server yet? What is it like?
  9. Anvil Corrupting World

    There are a bunch of reasons. Installing mods is hard so when people get it working they want to leave it alone as much as possible. (Even though if the bug gets fixed they'll have to update anyway.) People use mod packs that don't get updated. Either because they are abandoned or because other mods can't update to a newer Forge version or are just incompatible with newer TFC. People are using the "latest" version but "forgot" to check back after several months have passed and hit the post button before hitting the download button. People tend to rather complain than actively solve their issues. Take your pick
  10. Griefers complaining about the server they got banned from is hilarious For those not following our forums. We got a nice compliment on how our staff handles griefers a week or so ago. Read more here if interested: On a different note. I've finally gotten around to setting up Dynmap for our TFC servers again. Currently, the TFC Freebie and Donor TnFC servers are working on a full render. The Freebie TFC server should be done in a day or so, the Donor TFC servers will be busy rendering tiles for a week at least. The Dynmap tiles are stored on a separate 4TB WD Purple drive on which we've placed a BTRFS partition. BTRFS allows for file packing which means no space is wasted when storing many small files like we're doing with Dynmap. Think of it like this: when you store a file that is 1KB in size, it will normally take up 4KB of disk space since that is the smallest amount of space that can be allocated for a file. If the file is 5KB it will take up 8KB of disk space (2x 4KB) etc. BTRFS however, can stack files which means it doesn't allocate space in fixed sizes of 4KB. A file of 1KB takes up 1KB of space and a file of 5KB takes up 5KB of space. Without BTRFS we would not be able to store all the Dynmap tiles for all our TFC servers on a single 4TB drive. You can find the Dynmap URLs in the opening post of this thread and on our Servers page. So yeah, we hope you guys will enjoy Dynmap again.
  11. [Offline] Whitelisted Small Community Role-Play TFC Server

    According to tristanater0's profile he hasn't been online since June 2014 and he has never replied to this thread since he posted it. So it's a safe bet this server is offline.
  12. [79.26] TFC Community Server. Fresh World! Whitelisted.

    OP hasn't been logged on to these forums since January 6th and the thread title mentions the server is running and outdated version of TFC. So it's a fair bet this server is no longer available Can anyone confirm?
  13. World Crash- Please Help

    It's often a safe bet to use newer versions forge, but not always Using an older version of Forge for any given mod is usually a bad idea. Newer versions of Forge often have fixes that don't affect mods that were build for an older version. But some times Forge changes things that mods rely on and then they can break. Only thing to do is trial and error to see what works. We've tested dozens of configurations for our servers and haven't found any issues with running newer versions of Forge. That being said, we do run the Forge version TFC was build for. Reason being that when we submit bugs we at least don't have to worry about that question.
  14. World Crash- Please Help

    In our experience it's often a TFC contraption/block that's causing these problems in combination with the code not checking it's variables first. ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsExceptions are some of the easiest to prevent. Just check if a value exists before trying to use it. Alternatively one could use try ... catch mechanisms. This is the reason why Optifine is pretty much mandatory if you're playing on servers. It saves a ton of client crashes with bugged fruit trees because it uses more robust code. At first we would load the affected chunk into MCEdit and remove the faulty block. But since it happens so often we opted for a similar solution as TonyLiberatto uses: if Optifine doesn't prevent client crashes try to delete likely culprits with world edit from a safe distance. If that doesn't work then just delete the chunk and start over. Given that this is a single player world the World Edit approach may not work. The chunk needs to be loaded to be able to perform any action on it. And once the chunk is loaded the client is likely to crash. Perhaps if you're lucky you can load the chunk at the edge of far view distance and not crash. If that's the case then you could try using World Edit to delete the chunk. Otherwise try RegionFixer or MCEdit.
  15. [TFC 79.29.922] Nations of Terra

    A lot of mod authors have given permission for their mods to be used in mod packs. The FTB guys have compiled a list of mods which you can use in packs without having to ask for permission. All you have to do is check if the mods in your pack are on the list. If they are then you are done. If they're not then you may have to ask for permission for the few mods left. It really doesn't take that long anymore. Updating the pack takes more time than it does to check and ask for permissions Here's the page with mod permissions:
