      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!

297 posts in this topic

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.

"hunting an elephant with javelins" good luck with that. The elephants defenses and hit points will be beastly, so you're going to have a hard time doing that and not getting trampled. These aren't animals to take lightly.

-in the near future...-

How to hunt down an elephant.

You need: a stack of steak, elephants nearby to hunt, inventory full of javelins

Throw as many as you can, hide, place more in the hotbar, start again.

Reward: 265 elephant steaks, really big bones, and the hate of the others elephants.

no I don't know if javelins will be able to damage them at all. You may need a new weapon to hunt them, idk.

The thing about elephants is they are so tough, they were almost unkillable in ancient times; on the battlefields of the ancient world, the only way to defeat them was to panic them, or to kill the mahout (driver). Today, elephants are hunted using special guns, with fairly large bores. Same thing for rhinoceros.

You missed a ton of updates, apparently : they have been there for a long time.

No fucking way I'm touching a single one of those elephants unless it's for a ride. Elephants are highly intelligent animals and are being hunted to extinction. To kill them, even in a game, just seems... Wrong. Really wrong. :/

Then I have to assume you have never PVPed or played any shooters?

Otherwise, kinda funny that killing Elephants in a game is wrong but people meh thats fine. lol

Distinguishing between reality and games is what lets me kill elephants in Minecraft, and not kill people I hate in real life. Bring on the ivory.

of course, just because I implement them in the game for something other than killing doesn't mean I'm going to prevent you from doing whatever you like with it.

Only once. I was at a friends house, then I realized how disgusting it was to play a game about murdering other people and how it was surely paided for by the army. I never did again.

Most people deserve to die more than a Elephant anyways. If you're ever on a server and watching a elephant hunt then some random guy comes out and horrifically slaughters everyone, you know who it is ._.

I'm sorry for being rude but no one deserves to die no matter who they are. People hunted for their well-being and as of now yes it has become a 'cruel' sport but you gotta understand, this is the way life goes people die, animals die, plants die, everything dies. None have them done anything to be removed from the Earth permanently torn from everything they love and care about. Its just a fact of life. They aren't killing people for the fact to kill but for the thrill of getting closer to it with no harm. No one is harmed, no one murders because they play too much Call of Duty. I personally don't play that game often except for hanging out, same thing with hunting its for excitement. Is it wrong? Yes, is it going to happen? Yes. Any of you who are too one-sided to not understand that life goes on. Take a look around, it is just the sad truth of life. And for anyone who hunts or plays Call of Duty for watching pain, you are sick and twisted and should re-evaluate your life before you do something you will regret.

Sorry for the rant, this is an issue that caused many problems in my life. (not the psycho part, the ignorant and afraid of life part)

Edit:I apologize if that sounded like an attack on anyone in particular, no one take this personally please.

That's a relief. I suspected you were inspired by Boatmurdered. ;)

By the way, elephants could make for some awesome pack animals ... of course now I have an image of a storage room where all the chests have been replaced by elephants (you know someone would try it).

I LOVE Boatmurdered! It is by far the best tale of a bunch of drunken Dwarves dying horrible, horrible deaths.

I much prefer Headshoots to Boatmurdered. But of course I'm in favour of being brutally killed by elephants, as is any self-respecting dorf.

Also, hello TFCraft forum!

I killed 4 cows and got 60 meat..I think thats to much for difficulty 3... food should be scarce and incentive to farm crops and breed animals to get more

I believe vanilla cow drops only 1-3 beef...same for pig... I like that better then a lot of beef and pigchops dropping...

I don't! Do you know how long it takes to breed and grow crops!

Animals also don't respawn. If you kill all of your animals, you will have to move somewhere else to find more. Breeding animals take 7 months in-game.

Don't worry though, calf-pulling hasn't been implemented yet.
