      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."

  2. Decorative/Magical gems

    Hi Everyone! I've been playing TFC both alone and with friends for about 3 months now, and it's become the best minecraft mod I have ever played. so much I enjoy it more than vanilla itself. I love immersion in games, and this mod brought it to me. however, there was always one thing which bothered me: Gems. sure, they look pretty, but really, the only thing they're good for are protection meters, and that's only the chipped gems! I found myself wishing that they were useful in some other way, and when i saw that TFC2 was in development, i jumped on the opportunity. so, without further ado, Igive you my ideas for gems. First up is some decorative purposes. You could now set gems in chiseled stone blocks by chiseling out an accordingly sized area and right clicking on it with the gem in hand. when the block is broken, the gem(s) drop for you to collect again. this would be awesome for fancy buildings and showing off on servers/LAN worlds. PerhapsExquisite gems could be set in armor as well? maybe only metal armors and only the chestplate? and finally, maybe there could be a way to use them to stain/color light sources? for example, using a garnet would make red light, and using amethyst would make a purple light? this would add some customization and just be a cool effect. I've heard rumors that magic was going to be added to TFC2. this opens many possibilities and Ihave some ideas how gems can play a part. Gems can be used to make staffs. the higher tier gem, the more powerful the staff. for instance, a staff with a Chipped gem will not be as powerful, whereas one with anExquisite gem will be more powerful. also a random suggestion for staffs. two factors depend on the staff's durability/power. the material (i.e wood, copper, iron) depends on it's durability, and the gem (chipped, normal, flawless) depends on its power. Gems can be imbued with magic, ranging from healing to offensive to defensive powers, which can then be released by right clicking with the imbued gem in your hand. again, the better quality the gem, the more powerful magic can be stored inside. Going along with the theme of storing magic in gems, perhaps you could place gems with offensive magic down as traps. well that's all for now, please leave feedback!
  3. Kimberlite ID

    Whats the item id and data values of kimberlite oreo? I want to test out some stuff with it.
  4. Awesoman's Gem Tests

    Since my secondary aim in TFCraft survival is to get one of every quality of gem, I've decided to do a little test to see how commonly they appear, by digging different quarry sizes. Obviously this is in Creative because I haven't even entered the bronze age yet facecactus Tested with a Haste 126 effect and an Efficiency / pickaxe. 1x1 quarries 1: No gems D: 2: Still no gems :{ 3: No gems either *^* 2x2 quarries 1: 1 Chipped Sapphire, 1 normal Agate, 1 Chipped Beryl 3x3 quarries 1: 1 Flawless Jasper (ooh shiny!), 1 Chipped Jade, 1 Flawless Amethyst (also pretty good) 2: 1 Exquisite Sapphire (SHINEEEEE), 1 Flawless Beryl, 1 generic Jasper, 1 Flawed Ruby, 1 Exquisite Jade (wow...), 1 generic Tourmaline, 1 generic Topaz -WORK IN PROGRESS-
  5. How do I find gems faster?

    First I want to say I'm new to the mod, and well done on the work so far. And that this is also my first post (I joined the forums so I could edit the wiki, evilface.png) So right now my focus is finding all the types of gems. I know since I've only played for 2 real life days that it isn't top priority and my copper supplies are running drier than the sun but it would be cool to have a collection of different gemstone types. A whole hall dedicated to them would be pretty cool later on. In creative, I've tried dropping a bunch of Tnt minecarts (vanilla) down until bedrock was reached, and I got two inventory rows worth (a bit more because some stacked) of mostly chipped gems. I got a few flawed s and about 5 normals which wasn't too bad. I also got one flawless (an emerald) and two exquisites (one was a beryl). Buuut I don't have any iron or TNT in my survival map yet, so I'm just wondering how do you get gems faster without deconstructig entire mountains for them? Can't wait until the sluice is fixed because that'll definitely get me a lot of gems. And then this post is pretty mundane... And again sorry for being a noob
  6. Why do gems exist?

    I know that they have one use at the moment, which is for Protection Meters, i'm just dying to know more about any plans on what they will be used for next, if there are. I have a few idea's that I would love to share, but I would like to know what has been suggested and/or considered first.
