      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. Thanks for the reports :)

  2. Hey All, Some basic rules for posting a texture pack are as follows: If your work is based off of someone else's work you must include credit to the next immediate author.Provide comprehensive screenshots to display all of the active alterations your texture pack provides.Provide a download link that does not require login in order to access.Your texture pack must not give unintended advantages to players.Clarifications:You only need to cite the person your work is immediately based off of, not all the people that their work may be based off of as well.Unintended advantages are defined as: Allow the player to see beyond what they would normally be capable of.
  3. Rules for posting Texture Packs

    The spoiler tags would work perfectly. As to your questions I would say reference the website is fine there instead of the individual images. When the count is low from a site I would see it as like referencing an article in a magazine, its not a problem to say that article from that magazine (that photo from that site). When its referencing a large quantity (not necessarily a large proportion) from a single source then it would seem ok to say as found in a location, more of using an entire book's information instead of a chapter of it. The multiple textures question is a bit more of a Hmmmm... One of my fav vanilla mod packs is Misa's mod pack which has well like you said, almost a hundred for each texture type to show variation. I would say pick a few to show (no more than four, as it is just a preview) and then leave the rest to text like 'Added in a new dozen quartz textures' or some such. Maybe keep a running total for the variations some where. As for the quick response.. Kitty is very responsive on the forums and snags us as needed if we are taking too long. This just happens to be a post thread I am subscribed to because people deserve a quick response on something like this
  4. Rules for posting Texture Packs

    [shakes the dust off his forum shoulder pads] I would actually say list the sources in the post itself. It can be at the bottom in a smaller font but to be fair to the original sources/inspirations of your work a little tag line at the bottom does not seem to much to ask for
  5. [Solved] Level type for a server?

    You should be able to leave the settings at default to get a TFC world. World regeneration is just completely redone (as it is/was my understanding). I've not had to change things over.
  6. [TFC 0.78.9] ExtraFirma Addon v1.0.4

    I am unable to pour Bismuth Bronze into an arrow head mold to make the bolts.
  7. Avoiding The Grind

    Hey guys, as mentioned all over the place TFC2 is not the next version of TFC1 therefore this post which talks about nothing but how to fix the perceived grind in TFC1 has been moved to those forums.
  8. Make beds buildable rather than craftable?

    Last Word
  9. Food

    So yeah, like the title says the ability to craft food in replacement or addition to the alchemy of the game. Might be neat to make processing raw resources to produce more food or longevity of food better.. Like jerky instead of steak. that really hard bread that lasts forever instead of a loaf of french bread. Butter for the bread? who knows.
  10. Salt Water

    This seems like something to be lumped in in general with water ideas but oceans being salt water and not being useful for consumption, growth of crops, etc just seems like a logical step.
  11. Boulders Spawn Rate

    Confirmed that this has at least been pendingly addressed. I can always unlock it after release again but for now its a wait and see
  12. Horse meat

    Horses are not breeding machines. They are only fertile half of a year (half of spring and fall and all of summer) and are not a good source of food because of that. It is not practical to breed horses especially when in the real world they cost so much to purchase and maintain. Those costs are not present in TFC but I am sure something will be worked out to while they can be eaten and no adverse effect should granted to the player, it simply does not make sense to .. But you actually have to be able to put them to good use. Avi will see to it that things are balanced out in the long run but it still makes no sense to try and force people to play how You want them to play. I have always been around I spend most of my time moderating the IRC channel and then coming on here to snap close forum topics that have become a detriment to the system. Feel free to stop on by any time and chatter at me there
  13. Tribes with A.I. Controlled Characters

    Alright guys I am leaving this post here in its form as a bit of a warning/example. You may be wondering why I did not simply delete and remove all posts like I have done before to clean up a topic that has gone way way off topic.. The simple fact of the matter is this. We expect you to use this particular part of the forums for being suggestive BUT ON TOPIC of the mod and things for it. What I am not going to do THIS time and THIS time only is give every person who has a deleted post up there 5 warning points PER POST (And guess what happens to people who fill up their warning bar?). This takes time out of my life because people feel here is the time and place to waste time in their lives. Go poke around the other forums, go chat on IRC, go do something. But do not clutter up posts here to the point of uselessness. If you would like to talk to me about this then by all means hop into the IRC.. Any PM's on the forums, even apologies, will simply be ignored... again refer to time wasted remarks up above.
  14. Horse meat

    Hello All Just my two cents, in a little list. 1) Food is food, you can eat whatever you want and unless that whatever you want is outright poisionus then nothing should happen adversely to you. Horsemeat is a concentrated protein like any other kind of meat out there. 2) The adverse effects of eating this meat are what they are. If this bugs you you feel bad. There is no reason as to why the game should enforce something like this. I am not sure why it would make anyone feel better that you have negative status effects for eating something in a game when it does not give you a bad one when out of the game. To sum my two pointed two cents up, the game should be made open for many ways to choose how to play it and not be skewed towards any one play style just because that is how You choose to play it. Will I eat horses? Nope. But if I got into a crappy random world where nothing but horses spawned and all the oceans and rivers dried up? You bet your ass I would. Because its a game and that is the world the game provided me to try and survive within. Lets not limit what we are capable of.. removing functionality from a game just seems... stupid to me.
  15. NPCs?

    Alrighty.. No NPCs, no reason to keep this open.. Sooo Pft! Closing
  16. Crossbows

    A new ranged weapon type that uses bolts instead of arrows. The main difference between the mechanics of the bow and the crossbow would be that a crossbow is already in the fire state then needs to be reloaded instead of a bow being drawn back and released.. This would make your movement slow while reloading but not inherently slow while aiming. Same as what should be done to bows the different types of wood should be considered for the bow and stock of the cross bow with different characteristics. reeds and twigs could be used for the bolts along with fletching (god we need more than spy chickens for this) and then some way to make different tiered arrow heads and the like. A secondary consideration that would just be 'kewl' factor would be dual wielding hand versions of the cross bows
  17. Easier way of making charcoal?

    1 and 2 are an annoying old argument that should not even be used as talking points any more and just ignored when people bring them up. What I do want to comment on though are 3 4 5 6 and 7. Everything progresses in the game and its what people strive to do all the time.. Can you eat raw meat? Sure it will keep ya going, but we figure out how to cook it and store it so our effort can have a much longer lasting effect and we do not have to constantly be looking for food all the time. We should be seeing a progression in that same area in everything we try and do so there is a sense of accomplishment. That would be the reason to have a progression mechanic for charcoal much like there is for everything else that is already in TFC.. You start out with your hand stone tools and progress into longer and longer lasting metals. You start off cooking over a fire or eating raw meat to eventually farming so you dont have to follow the herds and are then able to produce more and more food with less and less effort. Charcoal currently has no mechanic that moves forward with it. We are never given a way to even do something as simple as reduce the varriance in what is produced say with something like a clay kiln for making the charcoal in.. I think what you missed is that these forums are for fleshing out ideas like this, not making ordered lists that only have 2 entries in them despite the implied numbering and blowing them off. Just my two cents.
  18. If you are running minecraft on Normal with no texture packs and are getting <30FPS then I would say your computer is on the low end of processing power.
  19. For what it is worth, extending the height of the world by another 128 pretty much makes the game unplayable by most low end machines, which seem to be prolific in the minecraft area. If Cubic Chunks ever moves forward again and it gets integrated into TFC then you can be assured this sort of thing should happen As for the issues about world gen. I do not think by any means that the world gen is finished so do not frett about that. Bioxx tries to get most of his current-needed World Gen done at once (As was see in the last set of updates where we now have oceans that are OMG big).

  21. This is not the place for this type of topic, Moving it to general.
  22. Unofficial SMP Trades Thread

    I can honestly say I have no idea what I am supposed to be discussing in here
  23. Bring back water saturation

    in SSP this is fine but this is like so many other things that happen over time and how horrible they translate into SMP. I have to say simplifying farming a bit in this manner makes sense to me.
