      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."

Change the height of the TFC world

6 posts in this topic

I play TFC for a long time. And recently, I began to worry about the performance issue as me with my friends on our server. We think that changing the height of the world, we will be able to improve performance. I explored the source code of TFC, but found no possibility to change the height of the world. Does anyone know how to do it?

That is a limit in Minecraft, not TFC. There were some mods that did this, one by Cuchaz, but I doubt they can be made to work with TFC. The one thing I can say for certain is that it will not improve performance in anyway. In fact it will make it worse. Increasing the number of blocks within the world means more information to process, blocks to render etc. Raising the height would just increase air blocks initially, so the impact wouldn't be as big compared to if they are actual blocks that need to be rendered.

It looks to me like he is asking for a way to decrease the world Height, That would be even harder to do. Or maybe he is referring to the height of the oceans. It is not clear.

Yeah, I don't want to increase the height, I want to reduce it to a standard 64 blocks or even 32 blocks in the source code I found the global variable SEALEVEL, but the change did not bring any results. To increase performance I have to reduce the average number of blocks per chunk, I think so.

There is no way to change the height of the ocean and regular terrain. TFC creates 3 layers of stone, to reduce that you would need to change the basic code and would end up with a broken mod.

TFC is by itself a heavy mod, when you add other mods and addons to the mixture it makes even harder.

To be honest, in a multiplayer setup the thing that causes more trouble is the number of players, especially if each player is in a different place in the world. As the server will have to load more chunks.

If the world is not pre-generated, the server will have to generate terrain for each player that is exploring the world.

If you make a server with just tfc and no other mods and you plan to have, between 5 and 10 players online at the same time. You need at least a quad core with 8Gb of Memory. 

Is it possible to do with less, I guess so, but you will have heavy LAG.

Нет никакого способа, чтобы изменить высоту океана и регулярные ландшафты. ОКП создает 3 слоя камня, чтобы уменьшить, что вы должны изменить базовый код и будет в конечном итоге с разбитым мод.

Tfc-это сам по себе тяжелый мод, при добавлении других модов и аддонов к смеси, это делает еще тяжелее.

Если честно, в многопользовательской установки, что вызывает больше проблем такое количество игроков, особенно если каждый игрок находится в другом месте в мире. В качестве сервера придется загрузить еще фрагменты.

Если мир не создан, сервер будет генерировать местность за каждого игрока, который изучает мир.

Если вы делаете сервер с tfc и без других модов, и вы планируете иметь от 5 до 10 игроков онлайн в то же время. Вам понадобится как минимум четырехъядерный процессор с 8 Гб памяти.

Это можно сделать с меньшим, я так думаю, но у вас будет сильное отставание.

Thanks for your response, we will try to update the hardware.
