      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."

Enhanced Movement

4 posts in this topic

I apologies if I'm repeating a post of which another has previously done, which I've haven't found anyone suggesting this, but looking at how dynamic this Minecraft overhaul mod is attempting to be, I find that it also requires a dynamic revamp of how you control your character too. Personally, playing the TerraFirmaPunk modpack as much as I have, I've grown very attached to the Smart Moving mod with TerraFirmaCraft because it allows for crawling and climbing into areas I would never be able to reach otherwise at some stages in the game. After personally playing the very early alpha of TFC 2, I've seen a lot of cliff faces that an enhanced movement addition would completely make climbing them amazing.

You could possibly have a stamina system for being able to climb up surfaces like how The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, Conan Exiles, and several other games with climbing mechanics us stamina for climbing. Then if you have climbing gear that'd allow for less stamina loss for climbing. Also, there could be repelling rope so you can go down cliff faces with ease. Climbing could also be a leveling skill like how all the other skills you can see in one of your inventory tabs. You could also eventually get safety rope that if you fall, you fall down a few blocks then get caught by a rope to regain your stamina, though if you rely on resting your weight on it for too long, it may snap on you so you'll have to use it with caution. There could be different grades of safety rope that you could craft and obtain.

In other cases, you could have crawling for caves and dungeons to get into secret areas or allowing you to explore more. Though, if you're going to do this, you'll need to allow a lot of enemies to use that tactic too, or at least add more enemies that are small enough to fit like insects and such seeping through 1x1 block holes.

For the last part, you could revamp the combat system. In my opinion, Minecraft generally has bland melee fighting. It's usually just who ever can click the fastest, and now with the newer updates, It's still who can click the fastest while timing the attack charge bar. I don't know how you could make fighting more immersive but I believe there could be ways to actually force you to be strategic with every fight you have. I personally love when games make it so you have to actually debate on whether or not you should engage a target and if you're equipped enough to do so. I saw the development for the models on the giant centipede and the giant spider to which I thought of how dangerous and taunting those would be to fight. I'd hate to see the way to kill them is just to walk up to them and click on them a few times while trying to keep your distance.

My bad, I considered it as one topic due to it's how you control your character, being enhanced movement. I guess it depends on your perspective of what "enhanced movement" fully classifies. From how I see it, how you engage into combat is a form of movement and controlling your player which is why I added it. But regardless, I apologies if it is.
