      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."

Cooking Food

8 posts in this topic

With the whole aim of believability in TFC, I think cooking should be at least a little bit harder. I think food should have to be manually removed at the right time, to prevent the food from being overcooked and turning burnt, as leaving food in a campfire and it automatically removing itself from the fire fully cooked isn't exactly believable. So I think you should have different heating levels for food, like Uncooked, Warming Up, Almost Cooked, Cooked, Overcooked, and Burnt. You could also adjust the filling capabilities based off the time away from the perfect cooking temperature, like overcooking for 1/2 a second could take away 10% of the hunger bar filling, or something along those lines.

I really like the idea of overcooking food, except for one detail. It's great because you can't just drop food in a fire and come back to find it perfectly cooked, with a layer of skill and difficulty required for cooking added as a result. The bad is that it would make food much more tedious to produce in mass quantities, and cause the player to spend large amounts of time cooking as a result.

Food should probably restore more hunger in general, anyways. After all, you can go a very long time without eating(but only a short time without drinking).

Instead of the wording you used for all food, instead appropriate food items, like beef for instance, could be labeled like; raw, rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, well, overcooked, and burned. I believe lamb is also graded like this. Chicken or pork you don't want to eat unless well cooked though, good way to barf your intestines all over for a few days, or even die.

On the other hand there are also deadly food born illness in beef that we just take for granted that it is for the most part eradicated in america. So it mostly depends on how detailed Dunk and or Bioxx want animals and butchery and food spoilage and cooking to be in general. On one hand getting to tedious can be a major turn off, on the other it would be interesting to see people on a server complaining cause they butchered a cow on the dirt next to a pile of poo and didn't properly clean and process the meats.

I saw mention that one possible direction for professions on a server was things that would require almost specializing in a field to be knowledgeable enougn with it to produce things of desireable quality. A cooking system such as this could add to a profession diversity such as that.

Yes, this is the idea I was heading towards, I was just really tired at the time and my thoughts weren't processing properly, so I just threw out what was in my mind at the time. Of course there would be different kinds of... Cooking? levels for different types of foods, and each one would restore a different portion of your hunger bar. Another thing that would bring into play would be maybe a restaurant-type business, as people like their meats cooked differently (Medium-rare, rare, etc.), and could add to the whole idea of the kingdom Bioxx plans on adding. This could also add another job of a butcher, or even a meat cleaner, so when an animal is killed, for example, instead of a cow dropping 18 pieces of raw beef, it could drop a certain amount of beef (calculated by the age, size, and approximately how much meat would be good from the cow, which could also bring farmers into the system, as you could get better meat from feeding your cows properly, or get mediocre quality meat from killing wild animals or cows which are just fed crappy food. This would add much more to the game, and could make having bigger factions help a lot more, as everybody could have their own specialized job, and well put together factions would have access to higher quality food, which would allow the farmers to harvest better quality meats from their animals.

Yes, I know that, but I figured maybe I'd have some more to add to the topic.

Trolls intentionally try and stir up trouble and cause rage. Someone that creates a thread based on their poor forum ediquite isn't a troll. :P
