      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. Radioactive ore

    Hello, I have a good idea for TFC2. I would like to see radioactive ore. They have radiation, which give bad effects. They will be used with a special multi-block structures, which in turn produce thermal energy. For example, for more rapid heating of the ingots and heating ores. Or for easier interaction with the same GregTech. And they can generate electricity, such as power railroad or different electrical units. I predict that they will be hard to find. So how will rare and the nuggets will not meet on the surface. And even if they are found first, then they can not be used. Yes, I realize that this industrialization of this beautiful mod, but the more stages of evolution from mod, the better. Thank you for your attention.
  2. Electrical energy!

    Will we get to see electricity in TFC? It would be an end game convenience that would serve for lighting places, irrigating farms with pumps and other things the community and I will definantelly come up with Uses for electricity One thing it will allow us to do is power electrical water pumps that could push water thru irrigation channels so we could build farms anywhere, and not only directly in rivers or ponds. We could hook up the irrigations to barrels and other water containers (even wells maibe?) And not only to water sources. This system could also allow us to have taps in our buildings! Another use would be lighting our areas with light bulbs or lamps. We could make electrical grinders to replace the generic, slow, primitive quern. Automated electrical bellows might become a thing, they would periodically blow depending on the setting you have them on (still have to think and experiment on this one) it was just suggested. Light bulb crafting We could build light bulbs and lamps to light up our places, light bulbs would be made by pouring molten glass into ceramic molds and the bulb's conductive bits would also be made by pouring molten iron into the right mold. We would also need a wolfram (a metal that melts at very high temperatures) as a filament, it would spawn in the ground as ore, as usual, and to make it into a filament you would have to hammer it on an anvil and respect the blueprint. (Maibe we would need a chisel to make it because its SOO small, the hammer would be hard to use?) Of course, you'd do it after making it an ingot and heating it. Wire usage Electricity would not travel thru the humongous, classic modded Minecraft wires, instead we would use copper wire on blocks and simply make them conduct electricity, they would have to touch a generator and the consumer (pump, light, etc) to power the consumer. Uninsulated wire could only be put in wood (cuz its an insulator) and insulated wire would go in anything, AND on top of blocks as a standalone blocock. Making copper / insulated wire Copper wire would be made by, again, pouring copper in the right mold. One mold could make 4 wire out of 1/4 of an ingot, so it would take 25 units of copper to make 4 wire, so out of one ingot you could make 16 wire, which considering wire is tiny, is reasonable IMHO. To insulate it, you would use rubber that you get from the occasional rubber tree patch you'll find by using a tap on its trunk above a bucket, the bucket would very slowly fill over time. One would have to put the raw rubber physicly into an ingot mold and melt the rubber, after, you would put the copper wire into a mold and pour the rubber in said mold with the 4(?) Copper wires to be insulated. Now you can place the insulated wire anywhere. Generators The generator would be made like this if: P - iron plate ; W - copper wire ; T - turbine ; M - magnetite (small) D - iron disc P W W T D M P P P Plates, cilinders, and the disc would be made of 1 iron ingot, 4 turbine blades would be combined with a cillinder to make the turbine. 1 ingot would equal 4 blades. It would need a steam boiler next to it to work, you have to fuel it with either wood or coal and water is also needed to make steam. If: P - iron plates ; B - Brick blocks (any kind) its crafted like this P P B P B B B Water pipes Irrigation pipes can be made of clay, you would simply use the clay forming to make them by making 2 straight lines in it (to not conflict with chisels) and firing it as usual. One pit could hold 4 molds, which would get you 8 clay pipes. These can be placed exactly like insulated wires. Water pumps Again, I'll look it up and come with a recipe I'll continue thinking to come up with more stuff in a bit
