      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. Brass

    The people that are making this mistake are probably not the same set of people that are reading the wiki, because it's pretty clear there and elsewhere. An in-game tutorial is the only real way to prevent this sort of thing in my opinion. And if you know your metallurgy it's pretty obvious why brass isn't useful for tools. That said there's not a good reason why it's impossible to make a brass shovel head; the restriction is pretty hand-holding. I feel that you should be able to waste your metal on a sword that's nearly or completely useless (maybe for decoration/ceremony as the known brass weapons are), but that's just me.
  2. [Solved] Game crash on Dirt tooltip

    This is a combination worldgen bug and game bug. The game bug has already been fixed and won't cause crashes any more, but that's in 0.78.4 and is waiting for the next release. The worldgen bug is a bit harder to track down.
  3. 2 more bugs

    I just encountered this bug myself. Was introduced in commit 0db38cad 4/7/2014 and 8205a11 4/8/2014 for "dirt now uses stone name in the texture". Offending code is in and Any dirt or sand blocks with damage higher than 20 will crash the game. I'm looking for how dirt can get a bad damage in the hopes of writing a decent patch to submit but I'm not super familiar with worldgen code yet.
  4. Compiling Forge 965

    TerraFirmaCraft 0.78.1 is built on Forge 965 which will always fail to build for a new download, because Mojang made a change to the server files for 1.6.4 without bumping the version. The Forge setup files check for the (now unavailable) original minecraft_server.1.6.4.jar, which has a different hash than the current version. So when you go to setup your modding environment for the first time you get the following error. Forge mod maintainers will be various kinds of helpful. So here's how to actually fix it, so that Forge 965 will build. After to a folder, open forgefmlmc_versions.cfg in your editor of choice and scroll down to the [1.6.4] section all the way at the end. The offending section is line 127, which reads server_md5 = ba3145656b1480122bd8759cecd7b7a1 And it should be server_md5 = abcf286a14f7aee82e8bf89270433509 Make that change, save it, and then run forgeinstall.cmd Now you can actually get started contributing to TFC or building/re-building your own addon mods.
