      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. Easy way to get lots of wood

    The reason, my friend, is for blacksmithing. You can create knives, swords, cast decorative pieces, custom create tools for around the yard, and just for the awesome feeling of heating a piece of steel to glowing yellow and hammering it out, completely bending to your will.
  2. Easy way to get lots of wood

    Charcoal is certainly different between different wood types, however, usually the effects are negligible. In fact, contrary to what you might think, charcoal creating from pine is more sought over than charcoal created from a hardwood, as the pine burns much faster and hotter, which makes a difference when you are trying to heat up metal to forge. The downside of this pine/hemlock charcoal is the fact that it produces a lot of sparks, which really isn't an issue in minecraft. I recently ran out of charcoal I had made for blacksmithing, but still wanted to continue without making more charcoal (IRL mind you) So I went and picked up a bag of bituminous coal. Let me say, I am now an avid supporter of coal. Minecraft's 1:1 value of charcoal to coal is completely unrealistic, as I burn just a handful of coal when I do a burn, instead of a whole box full of charcoal for a burn. As well, coal burns immensely hotter, I even managed to melt my knife right off (so long 3 days worth of work :'( _) Anyhow, the point of this is that even though hardwood may seem a better wood for charcoal, and it is for uses such as bbq'ing, softwood tends to be better for metal working purposes. BTW: If ever doing IRL metal working, USE COAL. You will save soooo much time and energy.
  3. Build 49 first impressions

    Great review, glad someone put something together for us who haven't tested it.
  4. Game going easy on me for once! :D Build48

    Oh yeah, forgot about that mode. Boy, going hardcore on TFC must be quite the challenge.
  5. Mods you use alongside TFC

    Huzzah, TFC updated for 1.3!
  6. Mods you use alongside TFC

    Thanks guys, I might look into some of these suggestions. @pyrocantaes, is that backpack mod smp compatible? Are you able to create it in-game without nei? Could you supply me with a link?
  7. Game going easy on me for once! :D Build48

    ??? Demo??? Enlighten me
  8. Mods you use alongside TFC

    Just to be clear, I will state here and in OP as to what mods I already have, to save you guys some time -TFC (of course) -Optifine (farther render distance FTW!) -Rei's Minimap Do note I do not have smart moving installed, never tried it, and I just haven't felt led to try now. I noticed some of you had buildcraft and redpower. How do you get around the recipes to craft them?
  9. Mods you use alongside TFC

    Hello all. I have a curious request to make. -What mods do you use alongside TFC? -Are these mods smp friendly? -What mods would you recommend to help with running a server? (plugin-like things, enhancements etc.) - I just recently decided to make a small server for my friends and I, and just would like some feedback as to what might make our experience that much better. Thanks guys, -Sirbrandino. P.S. - Just to be clear, I will state here and in a lower post as to what mods I already have, to save you guys some time -TFC (of course) -Optifine (farther render distance FTW!) -Rei's Minimap Do note I do not have smart moving installed, never tried it, and I just haven't felt led to try now.
  10. Game going easy on me for once! :D Build48

    Why you delete your worlds so often? I usually go at least a couple days irl before I stop playing a world.
  11. Some helpful tips

    Reading change log is always helpful, especially with the dev giving helpful hints.
  12. A little too hard perhaps?

    I've found willow to be very useful. AS for weapons, javelins aren't very reliable, I'm continually losing mine.
  13. TFC Team Survival Battle

    Sounds like an interesting concept. I'd like to join you guys, however, my schedule can get pretty tight. I am capable of HD recording if need be.
