      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. Bleeding / Weapon Tweaks

    Self-explanatory. If you are hit with a sharp object, you will "bleed". There will be a trail of "blood-stain" decoration blocks behind you and coming from you, and new particles will drip from the screen looking like red water droplets. You will lose 5 health points every 3 seconds until you put a new item of a bandage on you (right clicking, should be crafted by 2 string or 2 wool, depends) then you will stop bleeding, or you will stop bleeding naturally (2 minutes after last sharp object hit). Bleeding is also caused by arrows. This will only happen with a "Sharp" object, which brings me to another good point. Maces and hammers should have a gray tag under them that says "Blunt" and they don't make an enemy bleed, but do more damage combat wise. Knives and javelins will have a white tag under them called "Sharp". They do a lot of damage combat wise and induce "bleeding" to the mob (Unless it is a skeleton, for obvious reasons). This can also happen to you, if a javelin throwing skeleton or a friend hits you with a sharp object. Anything I missed or you want to add, feel free to say so!
  2. More Realistic Ore Veins

    I think the primary ore veins should have excess material around them, to make it more realistic. For example lets take Native Copper. The vein is usually just like by itself, not with anything around it. But in real life, you have something like this: X=Primary Ore O=Secondary Ore -=Excess Ore Overhead shot: -OOO-OOO- --OOXX-OO O-OXXXO-- -OOXXOO- --OO-O-OO Also, the side shot: OO-OO-OO---O O-XXXXXXXX-OO -OO-OOOO-OOO In this diagram, The X represents the Native Copper. The O represents a secondary copper mineral, such as Bornite, Chalcopyrite, etc.. The - represents the lesser and more rare and excess copper minerals like Ajoite, Antlerite, etc..The farther away from the Native stuff,or the "Good" stuff, it becomes harder to extract the primary element from that mineral, and the farther you get it also occurs in smaller quantities. I hope this is clear enough for you guys to understand!
  3. Have you read, understood, and followed all of the rules listed in large text at the top of the suggestions forum?(Yes/No): Answering "no" to the above question will result in your post being deleted. Yes I touched on this in a previous post but I feel it deserves it's own. Playing TFC, I feel there is little connection between the super natural and it's world. Now personally I am a fan of an all or nothing approach to fantasy, as such the mobs present seem to be more like placeholders for a challenging foe to make TFC extraordinarily difficult over vanilla minecraft. That said I think the presence of these mobs could be greatly improved with a gradient in terms of their combat ability as well as a connection to some kind of overall lore. I realize this would be challenging but hear me out. In my ideal world of gaiety and wonderment, TFC would be home, not to the generic animated corpses and beasts of unusual sizes, but instead populated by horrors of cosmic design. There would be mundane animals, abundant and strong enough to pose a threat but surmountable. Then, at first night, a new threat would make an appearance: Humans. These men are not simple survivors however, no these men have been driven to madness by an unknown force.They are no more difficult to kill than normal men, a serious wound and they will die of shock, but they would be numerous and aggressive. Driven away at first light, the madmen reappear every evening. That is until the night of the first full moon. Dispersed among the madmen would hooded figures bearing ceremonial blades and the ability to strengthen the hoards. Some time after that things would get interesting. Periodically, probably on the night of the occasional full moon, no mobs would spawn, instead a single Cosmic horror of Lovecraftian design with strength enough to sunder the feeble machinations of the Survivor would appear and relentlessly attack until either destroyed or frightened off by the dawn. This is a fantasy of course but the idea of what I am referring to is not so fantastical. A gradient and variety in the mobs to allow for escalating challenge, theming for the existing supernatural mobs, a greater threat from nature to give significance to the supernatural.
