      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. TFC Community / Server poll

    Heyo! I've been playing TFC for a few years now and am considering making a server. I wantto first see what the community wantsand what y'all don't want so that I can tailor a server to this communities needs. I hope to see your response and appeal to what you want! Just wanted to point out although my profile says I'm freshly spawned (which is true for this account) I had to make a new one, here is proof I existed:
  2. Combat Revamp Opinion Poll

    This is a Repost from the Combat Revamp thread. As I understand it, I hear many players are more interested in PvE. However, I wanted to get a poll of the People interested in this. Like Bioxx, I believe that we cannot treat this like real life. With the features so far, we are able to address many of the challenges we encounter in PvE and PvP. However, while we are not lacking much in principle, there are things that should exist that would make combat more immersive. To list a few: shields, armor weight, More projectiles weapons, Chain mail armor, War animals, Mob Upgrades. Some of which have been said in the Suggestion page. But here is how I see it: [*]Shields: From personal experience with using the Asgard Shields mod I've found that its use against projectiles were well founded, but its use in close courters combat is situational. For example: [*]If Cornered- It could be used to push back your opponent, like a shield bash. [*]If Jumped- it will allow you to stand your ground without breaking the flow of combat. [*]Armor Weight: If used in combination with shields, it could fixe many gaps in the flow of combat. From what I've seen of this mod which is similar to TFC (But more combat oriented), Mine Fantasy it creates a system of armor weight that may be appropriate for us. This would allow for more variety to a players choice of arsenal, may it be the light armor with ranged weapons choice, or heavy armor with melee weapons choice. However, like it was said by p122 in this Thread: This Issue can be resolve through choices by Player A: [*]If shields exist, he can use it to reduce the oncoming damage of his opponent as he advances and/or hope Player B advances into his range or Stops his barrage. [*]if War animals exist, He could use it to attack player B or expose him and/or If it is a Horse (An Armored Horse would be Ideal), use it to outrun his opponent. [*]He himself could attempt to shot his opponent dead while letting his armor take the damage. fast shooting, Preloaded weapons like a Crossbow would suit this need well. [*]More Projectile Weapons: Even though the current features of Ranged attack are sufficient to deal moderate damage, There is lack of GOOD disposable ranged firepower in TFC. The regular bow, although its arrows are disposable, lacks power and the Javelins, although powerful, lack disposability. I imagine this is intentional, yet this also hinders advanced combat and makes ranged weapons only second rate and used for inflicting slight damage and not to kill. This sort of feature was done well by our own home-grown mods ExtraFirma and the now abandoned Terra Bow Mod (Now Renewed). These sort of feature would grant players an edge in combat even if they lack strong armor, In addition, If added with my past mentioned features, It would link well together and make combat a little more strategized. [*]Chainmail Armor: This is more or less a feature that would suit well with Armor Weights, it would create and intermediate class of warrior that could afford to do both melee and ranged attack. The armor would vary against piercing and be better suited to deflect slashing than Crushing blows yet I believe it would receive a warm welcome from the TFC audience. [*]War Animals: This, for the most part, focuses on Horse. I have shared this opinion already in the Suggestion page and Dunkleosteus Stated: So I understand the circumstances of this feature a little better than the others. Yet I will state again, here, that I believe Horses clade in armor would enhance the combat structure of TFC with or without the addition of Armor Weights. It would grant greater mobility to player. In addition, like it was simply put in the Thread, I believe a Critical hit should be granted to horse bound players. On the other-hand, we currently possess Wolves, which if modified correctly, could become a better companion when attacking players. However, because of current changes they can no longer breed. This is sad and I fear that this may kill part of this idea, but I will let the admins correct me. [*]Mob Scaling: This is more of a PvE feature than PvP, but Mob Scaling would be create a vastly improved challenge to night combat. In principal, mobs would start with little armor or weapons and work up to stronger armors as the player or group average EXP exceeds the qualifier for better armed mobs. This would increase the challenge for mob battles. As to features like Skills and Magic, I believe we have to approach it cautiously. Too much focus on skills and the mod becomes like that MMORPG server pluggin. Too much focus on Magic and this mod becomes like Ars Magica or Thaumcraft (Not to say that there is anything wrong with the mods, Its just not my cup of tea). This doesn't mean that skills don't have a place, hell the EXP to Health system is a great feature, but is it necessary to have many more modifiers. As to magic, I do not know were to go with it, I just hope if it ever exists, it is purely additive. To me, this seems more of a Compilation than original idea, but then again, that is what this Thread needs. A little organization. Proposed Ideas: Inventory Limits: By Sting_AuerI think a system like this would work if we had set weights to all items (and weight cap for players). Also, make items have a certain size on the inventory grid. I.E. Equip Time: By RavenleftThis is well said in the Quote, a GUI that if interrupted, forces the player to stop equipping.
  3. Oke I want this clear once and for all. Should gravel be supported by support beams? I'm not asking what would be realistic, I'm asking what good gameplay would be because this is also part of terrafirmacraft. That graval isn't supported annoys the heck out of me. I really find any with the mining of surface ore. It is a pain do dig up all the gravel/dirt and it completely wreacks the invironment. This is a pain because you tend to mine close by home in the beginning. And it just doesn't make sense to me that dirt is supported and gravel is not. I see everywhere on the forum questions and argument about this topic so lets make it clear.
  4. For me personally I do not think big kingdoms are possible. Only small clans may prevail. The reason for this is that even if you do manage to found a kingdom can you really trust people? For all you know in a small mining village there are rebels planning to grief the capitol. Small clans can exist because people are invited personally and they probably know and trust them not to betray you. So! what do you think. vote and describe why you voted for that! But it's OK if you don't what to explain. BUT, if you don't, i have no choice but to burn your house down with a combustible lemon!
