      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. Bonesaws

    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. Allow us to craft saws out of bone as well as metal. This would either require a bone and a knife or a bone and a rock. For balance purposes, they should have durability similar to or lesser than stone tools. [x] Believable [x] Historically accurate [x] Gives more uses for bone [x] Allows players to create lumber early game, which is an incredibly useful resource for building
  2. [Request] Better Storage

    Looks sick, can't wait to have it. Keys aren't really a priority for TFC, at least in my opinion. Size restriction should be lifted if they're as expensive as in the vanilla version.
  3. [Request] Better Storage

    What I'm going for is more the aesthetics of the lockers from Better Storage rather than just the convenience of putting things next to each other. It's a bit jarring going from the pretty looking lockers of Better Storage to vanilla chests.
  4. [Request] Better Storage

    Would anyone consider creating a storage solutions addon for TFC akin to BetterStorage? We've gotten quite a few things to help out with storage in the base mod but it'd be nice to see things like vertical chests/lockers and some kind of stack based storage to add some variety.
  5. Why Suggestions Suck

    this thread is amazing thank you for enlightening us OP
  6. Dragons, ideas. community collaberation page

    Dragons are more like big, scaly vultures than gods, just saying. Also, Draco, why don't you just stop being such a fucking cynic and get over the fact that TFC isn't going to be the hyper-realistic survival simulator you want it to. It's OKAY to be a little disconnected from reality. Note how the dictionary definition of believable isn't JUST realistic, it can also mean CONVINCING. That or means either denotation is suitable. Dragons CAN be convincing, and so can magic. People CAN be convinced that these things COULD exist, under the right conditions, that is. Seriously though, calm your fucking tits for one second and see how these things could be fun.

    I'm pretty sure the joke is supposed to be "Dr. WHO?" or something along those lines.
  8. For the SSP players...

    People are overlooking the fact that this is already unintentionally implemented in SMP(yes I know some people mentioned it). I don't play SSP TFC, but I can imagine it would be much more difficult than SMP because you can't just log out and have your crops grow overnight. This has been suggested before, and I still support it.
  9. Cooking Food

    I really like the idea of overcooking food, except for one detail. It's great because you can't just drop food in a fire and come back to find it perfectly cooked, with a layer of skill and difficulty required for cooking added as a result. The bad is that it would make food much more tedious to produce in mass quantities, and cause the player to spend large amounts of time cooking as a result. Food should probably restore more hunger in general, anyways. After all, you can go a very long time without eating(but only a short time without drinking).
  10. Creeps

    Actually they aren't. Only the name was influenced by Slenderman, and that was after a fan pointed out the similarities to notch.
  11. Dragons, ideas. community collaberation page

    You don't need scientific evidence to disprove dragons, because that would be delving into the realm of realism, not believability. Believability is the average layman going "Hm, this seems like it could exist under the right conditions", not "This is physically impossible and here are my reasons why". Also I don't understand why six limbs is a problem. Just because there are no living reptiles with six limbs doesn't mean it's impossible. Other than that, I won't try to rationalize because it's quite obvious to someone scientifically minded that dragons wouldn't exist in their popular depiction in reality. But they could in a game, because it is a game. edit: I quoted the wrong post and then when I went to quote the right one I didn't realize it overwrote my existing post so I essentially left a blank post for about two hours. Sorry. edit2: actually my original post was still there how do I delete posts
  12. Tropical Island Biome Suggestion

    The word biome being redefined does not mean biomes have ceased existing, it just means the term has shifted meaning slightly. As for the topic of tropical islands, I definitely would like to see more islands, tropical or not. Specially generated island chains affected by latitude would be really cool, as we could have tropical islands along with arctic iceberg-esque islands. With current terrain generation, it's hard to find islands that actually feel like islands, and this has always disappointed me.
  13. Dragons, ideas. community collaberation page

    TFC isn't about reality, though, it's about being believable. The reason why I suggested European dragons is because they are the most generic and well known type of dragon, which would make them seem less out of place in a more BELIEVABLE survival experience compared to more obscure mythos(why am I even bothering you are just going to argue with me anyways). Also if there were dragons, like I said, they should be guarding huge hoards of treasure that are located in large mountain caverns(or deep underground, but it should be in specially generated caves either way). In addition, after going back and re-reading some posts, I want to elaborate on why fantasy elements should be generic. Simply put, TFC is a survival experience, not a fantasy epic. We don't need mythology or unique mobs because that ruins the atmosphere which TFC creates for the player. It's the same reason I think creepers and endermen should be removed in the mod; the game's atmosphere is generally enhanced without them. I know I am not the one developing this mod, but I feel that as a player I very well understand the direction it is under. As a result I try my best to influence others appropriately so that direction does not shift away, and the reasons behind my enjoyment for TFC ceasing to be.
  14. Creeps

    TFC aims to be BELIEVABLE, not REALISTIC. Huge difference. I still think Endermen along with any other Minecraft-exclusive mobs should be removed, however. Skeletons and zombies are generic enough to work, but with the direction TFC is/was heading all the unique mobs didn't make much sense. Same with The End, too. The Nether works because it's just a generic hell dimension, but The End is something strictly invented for MC(although a while back dunk made a really good post about what The End could be made into, with grim-reaper-esque mobs instead of Endermen, so I suppose as long as it looks nothing like the original it could work).
