      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."

Any map mod with waypoint groups ?

8 posts in this topic

Hey there,

does anybody know any map mod with waypoint group functionality?

Example:

I have enabled in-game waypoints which shows as beacons, so I can easily see where to go without looking at map.
In TFC there are usually so many waypoints (ores, fruit trees, caves and other places of interest).
I don't want to see ALL of beacons... usually I want to see only mines, only caves, etc...

So it would be handy if I could 'scroll' between waypoint groups and show only beacons of waypoints from active group.

 

Hope that makes sense

Hi man,

Have you already tried the mod Mapwriter? you can easily make groups in this one.

I think you are using JurneyMap? don't you?

Hoo thank you :D

I personaly always use Mapwriter.

When i need to go to some waypoint i just right-click on it at the fullscreen map, and it will be marked whit a white border on minimap.

I use JourneyMap and make groups myself via naming

For example, every time a find an ore nugget, i mark the area with a name: [Ore] Ore_name
When I get my hands on digging a mine, i rename it to be: [Mine] Ore_name - ore_richness
And when the mineshaft gets depleated, i makr it as such: [Depleated] Ore_name - ore_richness

Then I siply sort all the waypoints by their name and get a list sorted out
All the ores of the same type are listed one after another

All the mineshafts are also groupped
So are depleated mines

The usual waypoints have no prefix, but the important ones I usually start with and underscore __
Thus it always stays at the top of the waypoint list

I also use Journey Map, the only difference is that when I find nuggets I name the waypoint with the Ore name, but I also include the surface rock type and the Trees around, just in case latter on if I am looking for a specific rock type or wood color for building I will know where to look for it.

BTW the Home waypoint I create with a dot so it is always the first on the list.
