      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."

    Stone Miner
  1. House tutorial - nice, easy, midgame

    Looking at this a year later, and god do those stone walls look ugly... I really thought it looked nice at the time (although I guess it's an ok midgame build). Has there been any aesthetic blocks added to the mod since then? Would be nice to try this with a smoother textures.
  2. TFC recontructed

    There's no vocal or silent majority, those are just excuses. There are good and bad design choices, that's all.
  3. TFC recontructed

    None of that would work, you need a team that can make decisions according to specific goals. There is no lack of that in TFC, the issue we have right now is that devs have decided to alienate a whole bunch of players that had no problem playing the previous versions.
  4. Torch Poll

    The poll is missing the "I'm not even going to bother with the mod" option. Turning it off in the configs makes you play a very different game than the one everyone else is playing, so no thanks. This is not an innovative feature, there are several mods that do this. Guess what, those mods have a very specific and limited audience, because this feature is very "not for everyone". Now, TFC was already a very limited mod in the long term. After you get to the endgame steel, there's very little to do. Building cool stuff was the only real endgame at that point, and without convenient lighting that is not really feasible anymore. Smallscale uninspired architecture with minimal lighting is all you can accomplish. I've also had a look at the other new features, and frankly, I'll pass on this version of the mod. For every feature that adds something interesting, there are several that make it too boring and tedious to play.
  5. Torch Discussion

    The huge thing YOU are missing is that lanterns will not address the lighting needs of a huge amount of people, and they won't be in the mod for a year or so.Vanilla torches have a very specific purpose. They give you a convenient freedom that makes the game less boring, because you can do the fun stuff and don't have to worry about replacing torches. That allows you to have a huge variety of playstyles in one game.In TFC you are going the opposite route. You remove all the convenience, forcing a very narrow playstyle that matches your own. You may enjoy making a small hovel that has two torches in it, but a lot of people won't.You ARE dismissing and ignoring feedback that doesn't suit you, and you have been doing it since forever. This is not something I noticed today, it's always been here. It's everywhere, too, in the mod, on the wiki, on these forums...
  6. Sequoia forest

    In previous versions I had sequoias at 12000, not sure how it works now.
  7. Torch Discussion

    You can make a forge and cook torches 5 by 5. All you need for a forge is some charcoal and cobblestone.
  8. Torch Discussion

    I don't think this will add any fun to the mod. It needs more interesting mechanics like the smithing, not tedium like cutting out rot from cabbage and relighting torches.
  9. I was using water barrels to cool ingots, and shift-clicking them in and out of the barrel was creating a display-only duplicate in the inventory space where the ingot was. It was possible to shift-click the duplicate into the barrel as well. Closing the inventory removed the displayed duplicate. Maybe related to the ghost items bug?
  10. Metal Duplication

    How do you pour an incomplete mold into a crucible? I was unable to do that.
  11. Charcoal pit

    Not sure about torches, but you can make underwater pits. Not very practical, but fun to try.
  12. Etho does TerraFirmaCraft

    He's breeding pigs in that tiny barn space... hehe...
  13. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    I was talking about this, not something from a let's play.
  14. Wiki Edits/Suggestions

    You need to mention that Armor Smithing does nothing, as well as everything else that does nothing.
  15. Charcoal pit

    White cedar farms suck for charcoal making. You'd be better off making expeditions into forests and chopping them down, making charcoal pits right there and moving on.
