      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."

okay, so I'm looking to make a TFC modpack, and I wanted to have either a tech tree, magic tree or both.  For now, looking at tech, and searching for more realistic Tech mods, I came across RotaryCraft.  My question is this then.  How easy would it be to MineTweak it so it is compatible with TFC?

I see two issues:

1. Reissa modpack policy - you need his personal agreement to change recipes,

2. biome ambient temperature

1.  Hmm.  That does look like a problem.  Barring getting the permission, would altering the ore dictionary and altering vanilla recipes so as not to allow items to be crafted that shouldn't be craftable be a viable option?

2.  Sorry, I'm new to the mod, haven't looked at RotaryCraft in depth just yet.  What do you mean by this?

If you install the mods on your own client, you don't need permission. You only need permission when you create a mod pack that you want to share with others.

This means you can put the mods together and see which problems you encounter. Things that come to mind are world generation, over powered mechanics and ambient biome temperatures. Some machines need to be cold, others need to be hot. Placing them in a biome that is either too hot or too cold can be detrimental. And since Rotarycraft has some very powerful machinery the jump from TFC's hand forged tools to Rotarycraft's high tech machinery will be huge.

Try playing through the Rotarycraft tech tree with TFC installed and see if it works. Rotarycraft is a really nice mod that we were fortunate enough to get permission for to include in our HappyDiggers AMP mod pack back in Minecraft 1.6.4 before Reika even allowed his mods in mod packs in general. Rotarycraft is also a more technical mod in the sense that it's a bit more difficult to understand it's mechanics than other tech mods like Buildcraft, Industrialcraft, GregTech, EnderIO, Mekanism, etc. If you ask me that also makes it a potentially good fit for TFC. Not everything has to be easy :)
