      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."

Food, how to survive until you can farm

5 posts in this topic

Farming takes a long time, so it will be a while before you can count on bread as a food supply and even a while longer before you can breed your own livestock.

In the mean time here are a few tips on how to keep form dying of starvation and avoid suicides.

On your first day try not to run around too much and build a house to keep safe from monsters.

Locate animals they will be your first food source.

Meat can be cooked one piece at a time in a fire pit. It takes forever to cook a stack but what else are you gonna do at night. You can also cook meat in a forge 5 piece at a time add a bellows and it cooks even faster.

Pigs and Cows:

Both will give you a good amount of meat and leather, but until you can breed them they are not a renewable food source

Chickens:

DO NOT KILL CHICKENS. Keep them around and gather their eggs. You won't be able to trow them to make more chickens like in Vanilla MC, but you can cook them. Just put them in your fire pit or forge. They replenish 2 hunger.

Fruits:

You might come across this

post-1385-0-49416400-1348280001_thumb.pn

or a dead looking tree, Those are fruit trees. They are easily noticeable because their trunk is very thin ( like a fence post). If the tree looks dead it because its winter when spring comes it will grow leaves and then blossom and then give fruits. If you don't see fruits in the trees then come back in a month (game time). If you see fruits you can punch the leaves and you will receive the fruit. You can also attempt to harvest a sapling by breaking a branch (not the leaves and not the trunk) with an ax, but the drop rate is very low. Leave the trunk and come back same time next year (game-time) to harvest more fruit.

Fruits depending on the kind replenish 1 or 2 hunger.

Fishing:

For now fishing works just like in vanilla MC. Kill a spider for some strings and make a fishing rod with sticks and head to the nearest source of water. According to dunkleosteus we can expect fish mobs (see the tread)

Hostile mob food source:

Rotten flesh is still a source of food like in Vanilla MC, but TerrafirmaCraft has so much more to offer keep it as dog food.

Spider eyes are edible too and will replenish 2 hunger.

This is still a work in progress let me know if i miss anything i'll add it in

Thanks to redundantusage and TheWolf227 for their input

On several occasions I've survived thanks to killing a spider and using the string to make a fishing rod. In sparse biomes this can be a life saver.

Yes, and I ate a lot of spider eyes, because every eye restores 2 hunger. If you have a depleted hunger bar, eat them. It's better than die.

Nice guide also it is good that when you find a place to call home do not hunt the animals around unless you're like 500 - 1000 block away, that way you won't need to worry killing all the animals you're planing to breed later ^_^
