      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."

Couldn't we render all the models from the textures like almost minecraft item does and then add the handle or the leather strips, instead of making a separate model for every shield?

We could have 2 textures for every shield, one for the interior and one for the exterior... the model would be generated by the interior  and the front of the shield will have another texture, or viceversa.

example interior.pngexample exterior.png

By the way, eagle i like your textures but i dont think we need stripes of metal everywhere, an umbo should be enough for most shieds

 

Here is how the overlay textures would actually look: example interior texture.pngexample exterior texture.png (they will be 16x32 for this shield of course).

I was thinking... we could still put banners in the front face of the shield, covering the wood. Of course the umbo and other metal parts would cover the banner but a lot of decoration options would still be there.

Wait I have done more accurate designs. I'm not that good with metal textures so you can use these any way you want.

Now, black is metal overlay and white is wood (or banner). Red is invisible overlay.

Wood:   Exterior Wooden Shield Shape.png   Interior Wooden Shield Shape Interior.png   (Yes it is identical)

Copper:   Exterior Copper Shield Shape.png   Interior Copper Shield Shape Interior.png

Bronze:   Exterior Bronze Shield Shape.png   Interior Bronze Shield Shape Interior.png

Bismuth Bronze:   Exterior Bismuth Bronze Shield Shape.png   Interior Bismuth Bronze Shield Shape Interior.png

Black Bronze:   Exterior Black Bronze Shield Shape.png   Interior Black Bronze Shield Shape Interior.png

Wrought Iron:   Exterior Wrought Iron Shield Shape.png   Interior Wrought Iron Shield Shape Interior.png   (We already have it thanks to @eagleyes005)

Steel:   Exterior Steel Shield Shape.png   Interior Steel Shield Shape Interior.png   (Identical too)

Black Steel:   Exterior Black Steel Shield Shape.png   Interior Black Steel Shield Shape Interior.png

Blue Steel:   Exterior Blue Steel Shield Shape.png   Interior Blue Steel Shield Shape Interior.png

Red Steel 1:   Exterior Red Steel Shield Shape.png   Interior Red Steel Shield Shape Interior.png           Still               sure                    red

Red Steel 2:   Exterior Red Steel Shield Shape Alternative.png   Interior Red Steel Shield Shape Alternative Interior.png                    not                 about               steel

I totally agree whit you.

We can usa large shields as you said and make small ones (like bucklers) made entire of metal.

I will be doing more textures for each of these shields.
