      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."

Legit gathering of missing resources

10 posts in this topic

Hey,

I was wondering, if you play legit (no cheats) and you play in a world for quite some time ... and then you are unable to find something (for example needed resource to progress further in tech tree).

How do you solve that?

 

For example: I generate new world and transfer all my stuff into this new world – BUT – my rule is that I can transfer only half of everything... like half of equipment, half of ores, half of ingots, etc...

The hardest to acquire resource is, in my belief, Garnierite; since it only spawns in Gabro. Even Graphite spawns in 4 different rock types so with some effort you will find it.

With that in mind, I actually only generate new worlds if I have the bad luck of a small Islands world. Since ores do not spawn under the ocean it is a waste of map.

I like big continents, travelling by foot is the best way to find all the resources I need to progress in the tech tree.

The only valid option i see here is travelling
My friends and I spend whole late-spring upto early autumn exploring
Last weekend we even ended up naming our map

it really would have been cool, but personally I don't know any of the kind
I just have a project in photoshop with 2 layers: top layer with names and the bottom layer with the map
Whenever we explore some more terrain, i just replace the old map with a new one and all the names remain in their places

sounds good, did you manage somehow to export resulting image to the mod itself, replacing map's data?

Journey Map mod lets you export the final image of the Whole map into a png file saved in your screenshots folder

I think he was talking about importing back the image with the names into the map mod. Since the map is actually composed of generated images I do not see how it can be done.

We do have the alternative of using Journey map with the Waypoints. All one has to do is to share the waypoints.

Oh that's what he meant
Didn't quite get that the first time I read it
Sorry, english is not my first language

Anyway, no, I do not import it back at all
The reason being that whenever I visit a chunk that has to have the name I painted over in Photoshop will get refreshed and replaced with a newer version of it thus removing every name i've written

I rarely get problems with garnierite since I usually dont settle down till I find Gabro. I dont necesarly settle there but I know where it is.

Sure, not every time it is possible this way since I have to get supplies for winter. If this happens I settle down and progress to steel age as normal. After that I find a donkey and make mobile base out of him.

I pack a lot of supplies onto him and me (e.g. 4 stacks of planks, stack of coal, everything needed for a basic forge, saplings as emergency wood .....), but not everything can fit into barrels, vessels and onto my donkey so the large stuff is in my inventory (e.g. stack of steel ingots, cruicible. bellows......). The main problem that remains is food decay. I go around it by taking slow decaying food which is pickled, salted and smoked. When I run out I gather wild crops on the way if its summer, in winter I hunt  for meat.

This way I explore everything accesible by land. If I still dont find Gabro (never happend to me) Im thinking I would put my donkey on a leash and pull it behind my boat.
