      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."

Roanoke 6 Challenge Server, modified build 77 with several new features.

Roanoke 6......Challenge Server.

 

If you are up for something very different and very challenging consider joining us on the Roanoke 6 Challenge Server.  Using a tweaked Build 77 of the most excellent TerraFirmaCraft mod our programmer has adapted many new features that add to the immersion of the best mod in Minecraft.....to name a few:

1. Travel faster on cobblestone roads.

2. Find ore veins that expand, contract, branch, and fade out suddenly....they also sometimes have a few blocks of other appropriate ores embedded in them.

3. Use the sluice to find clasts (small insignificant bits of ore) to locate valuable minerals and ores.

4. Find zones of abundant ores and minerals and other areas that have doodley-squat!....(hint; the further north you go, the more chance to strike it rich).....

5. Propick too op?.....ours only reveals the presence of minerals, not the type.......very tricky.....

6.Tool durability and speed are both reduced so no more building tunnels to avoid the surface....what are we, Morlocks?.....(fortunately tnt can be bought at Spawn for a few paltry coins)......

6. More believable tree growth.....it might take weeks of real time for trees to grow.

7. An in game server economy founded on a presumed external market......many things can be sold and the money used to buy land and helpful things....like better boats and airships!!

8. No more smacking grass to find plants.....each different plant grows in a very few places and finding them is tough, but worth it.

9. Gems can be used to enchant items but they no longer drop willy-nilly when you are mining or pop randomly from a sluice.....you have to find the sedimentary beds where they lie, so we hope your favorite song is "sluicing in the dirt for diamonds"......

10. Kimberlite can be found in distinct pipes, and other sedimentary minerals can be found in stratified beds.

11. Even the grass is against you as it slows your movement!.....the only solution is to build some roads or railroads….maybe even buy an airship…..

12. Have you ever wondered how a chest actually works without any hinges?....wonder no more because we now require you to provide metal hardware for many of the recipes. You can find the clay mold in the crafting screen….now you have a use for all that copper.

 

Consider this....the server has been online for over a year and we are still using iron tools......there is graphite and kaolinite out there but where?......

I thought I would post my little comment that I just made on our enjin site......it'll keep the other lonely post company....

 

...more speaking to the ether I reckon. I made up a post the other day for the TFC Forums that highlighted our unique and challenging server.....I am not terribly confident that there will be a large influx seeing as TFC seems a bit dead right now. If anyone actually sees this please feel free to chime in....even to tell me I am flogging a dead horse (not unlikely)....Aeroc made a number of changes to how farming works with the hoe having a new function and a new recipe for fertilizer....lately I have been mining magnetite from shale (which would induce eyestrain in an eagle) and will soon extend the east road further east (duh) to an eventual station for a north/south railway.....sound fun?.....probably not....feel free to join us....if we get enough players (lol) my wife (Eviljen) might devise some adventures for us with CustomNPC.......cheerio for now!!

....Ruby Tuesday....I had found evidence of a stratified bed of ruby bearing ore with my sluice and had spent several hours trying to find it....alas I had to give up in disgust. However, after a few days of getting my resolve back I vastly re-equipped and set out in my airship to find the damn stuff!.....as I approached my mine I chanced a glance at the mountain right next to me where the telltale sign of ruby ore was blazoned plainly on the rocks!!.....how the HELL did I miss it....lol. In other news, we have had a few old players and a couple new ones drop by.....not sure if they're sold on our vision but we can only hope they come back......no worries either way as it is not for everyone. What I do think we have is a very challenging system which rewards hard work and clever play.....basically "Tanstaafl"....there ain't no such thing as a free lunch. The east road continues to plod eastward to the location of a new server sponsored town....I hope to offer contracts to players to build server buildings....this will be by way of a competitive bid. We also have a new dynamic map up so people can have an idea where they are....I like the map as it is a good mix of oceans and continents. There is also a provision to now expand your town by buying wooden tokens from the land office. That's all for now and if you want a different (and tough) experience give us a look. Cheerio.

....carrots.....I found carrots! I had to fly in the airship for about 3 hours but I eventually found lovely carrots.....it only took 16 months!  About farming....the many types of soil are greatly different in their fertility....you can't just plant anything anywhere and expect it to grow at any decent rate. Additional to this complexity is that when you dig soil it drops as the poorest soil type....no moving good soil from place to place....you basically have to farm where the soil is good. To tell how the soil is you can right click with a hoe on tilled land and it will give you an idea how rich that soil is. You can also combine sylvite and bone meal to produce fertilizer which has a 50% chance to improve the soil. In the near future Aeroc will be making some sort of toll gate which will fit into the new airship teleport system....pay a fee and build a station at 225+ and you can have an airship station which can be used to fast travel......but there will also be a ticket charge to use the system...no free rides.....I will continue to offer occasional updates and info regarding our server.....but also feel free to inquire for any clarification....cheerio!

Shoutout to Ludgar....yup, still plugging along!

 

I will post our latest news for the TFC community.

 

So....on we go. I am pleased to see that a few of our former players have joined us and are enjoying all the hardships we have cooked up.....more to come on that and perhaps some things that will help. The East Road has now reached the environs in which a new city will be established....I want to build this one all legit by contracting interested players for the builds....expect the pay to be substantial. I am also looking for a name....i thought we might continue the theme of abandoned colonies, a pertinent one as servers go so if you have an interesting name of some settlement that was abandoned please tell us here. Just so you know there are rumors of steel...no specifics but progress has been made....only 15 months and counting! An upcoming feature is the addition of a form of teleport.....not free of course and is predicated on developing a new block we shall call a "pay gate".....put a designated payment in it and it teleports you to the other side. An airship station has already been established at spawn and players may build their own....it must be at the 225 meter level (mountains are handy) and be structurally rational (no 1x1 nonsense). For the mere fee of 1 emerald coin (1000 iron coins) per 10,000 meters from Roanoke City the admin will place a CustomNPC that can teleport you between the Roanoke Station and your location. By using land ownership it will be up to you whether you allow people to use your airship station.....perhaps a fee to leave the station!
