      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."

Animals!

And wolf packs would follow sheep packs.

Sheep, pig, cow etc. packs would follow grassier areas and run from wolves.

When you hit a passive mob it And it's pack runs away from you. I HATE how you punch the cows and the others are like:

Cow 1: "Did you see that?"

Cow 2: "Yea, Thomas just got killed."

Cow 1: "Should we run?"

Cow 1: "Nah, I wanna eat more grass."

Cow 2: "Okay."

Human kills cow 2."

Cow 1: "Did you see that?"

Cow 3: "Yea, Barney just got killed."

This isn't a folk-tale, its TFC o.0

I do think the herd behavior should be different from pack behavior. Packs have an Alpha and the pack is all connected to that individual. The individuals copy or contribute to the goals of the alpha. Herds are more of a collection of individuals that through their behaviors conglomerate and move together. (Note: I don't actually know if this is really the case but it's my perception)

Also I would prefer if wolves had a territory or home set. They would go hunting for prey when they get hungry, but I think that's the most following they should do.

-Pack animals! Used to transport more than the player can with a pack saddle. Have them haul carts for even more carrying capacity.

Any sort of pack animal would be massively useful. Forget about carts, just make a donkey or something which is effectively a mobile (and killable) chest. It would make transporting goods to and from my distant mines sooooo much easier.

Of course, Bioxx would probably take this as an opportunity to nerf the player inventory. ;)

Well I'm not sure if it is called Alpha with for example cows.. but the strongest male ist still the leader of the group so i think the principle is pretty much the same...

As long as they don't run off or get chased off with all your goods :).

What also would be nice is tweaked cow size to make them bigger. Now every single cow you can find is the size of a culf, which doesn't seems right to me.

I think it would be great if zombies occasionally went after the other mobs too. Would be hilarious to look down from your lofty castle and see some zombie slowly chasing your sheep in circles. Maybe wolves could be trained to protect farm animals, like the golems in vanilla?

that would be kinda funny, but since it is planned to move the current hostile mobs into crypts in a future udate, here wouldn't be much sense in putting the time to code that in now. Besides, if I'm not mistaken AI is one of Bioxx's weak spots. His only to my knowledge actually. Dunk's too.

You from saskatchatoon ooooh yah? (I've been there, wonderful place :))

Nothing says they won't be able to go on the surface, they could still be there in night time if anywhere near a cave. Unless any kind of light hurts them, which would make torches your top weapon when getting down to a crypt ._.

True true, but this behavior would never be seen unless you were stupid enough to build your house next to a crypt (guilty as charged :P). The fact of the matter still is Bioxx and AI coding don't agree with eachother, I doubt he would get into a AI feature unless it was REALLY worth it. Just_Another_Guess though ;)

Ahh - I had not seen that yet, being so new but that's unfortunate. Would be even better if they crawled out of crypts to hunt your sheep though... :o

Ha - yes, Saskatchatoon. Not often my little underpopulated homeland gets mentioned in Hollywood - even if they did (purposefully) mangle the province and city names together (to say nothing of the northern-Ontario accent they gave the guy... extra funny considering urban SK sounds nearly the same as LA).

You are intent on zombies having a sheep fetish...

I actually Know about it for other reasons haha, i don't reneged much cause I was little but my parents used to be mushers and we traveled through there a couple time on the way to races. I lived on the border for a while and always did my shopping and recreation on the Canadian side, everyone was just friendlier and more intelligent...

Can't get passed the image in my head. I've always found slow-motion chases funny... staple of D-grade horror. Sheep... because sheep are just kind of ridiculous creatures.

Cool. We see a lot of plates from down south heading up to the north lands... mostly for hunting and fishing I think, but mushing - that's cool. I don't think we're any more intelligent... our education system is quite a bit better, but that only gives knowledge whereas intelligence is how you use it. I think everyone is about the same on that front.

"dunk's too".

-____- initiative is my weakness.

AI is one of my strong points when I take the time to do it properly.

And from what I understand, zombies and skeletons will be recieving graphical updates and some buffs and variation. Swords and armour will probably be added to certain monsters which make them stronger. Whether these may drop is unknown at the moment. As far as I know, only sunlight will hurt them, but not in the "ooh, ow, I better run under this tree" more like "aaaiarrhrrhhhghhghgh!" *fwoomp* and they sorta vaporize. I guess.

What I mainly want to see from anything to do with Animals is......

MORE USES FOR LEATHER!!!

I mean lets face it, after you find your first metals do you not ditch the leather armour for something more solid. After your 2nd or maybe 3rd bellows, do you make another???

The amount of leather thats dropped right now comparead to the different kinds of uses are too limited...

Complete with epic death screams I hope! - Who needs a rooster when you can wake up to the melody of a dozen wailing zombies.

I actually pointed out on a server once that zombies and skeletons were my alarm clock to know when I should wake up and go outside. When I hear burning flesh, I know the sun has started shining.

A bit more on topic, I hope I can mount that ivory on my armors' pauldrons or something. Being the guy that hunted and killing a fully grown elephant using nothing but javelins, a loincloth, and a whole lot of tenacity should be put on display. That or maybe just trophies in general if animals start getting genuinely harder.

Or you could take the Hannibal way, and ride them :3

-note: Not talking about Hannibal Lecter. That guy on an elephant would be a worldwide "you are screwed" :-

I would like there to be a variety of rideable animals. So many possibilities, war and economy wise, can not be just ignored.
