      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."

Surface Nuggets

26 posts in this topic

Strange that searching for a similar topic doesn't come up on anything like what i'm going to discuss..

Everyone that has played a while TFC knows that on the surface are scattered around ores in form of small nuggets, but for my experience i've only found bismuthinite, cassiterite, sphalerite and copper in those rocks..

what i'm aking myself since few days ago is: are they the only ores i can found on the surface?? i mean, i know that every mineral smeltable into metal is available both as medium and small nugget, but i can't find small gold nugget or small galena nuggets, has it something to do with the possible fact that ores which are not in tier 0 or 1 are found deeper from the surface?

That because loose rocks contain minerals of the surroundings. If you find a nugget, probably below you there is a deposit of what you found. I.E. you can't find gold because it's too deep.

The fact is that by breaking rocks you will only find those nuggets. Some other nuggets are obtainable as well, but ONLY via panning or sluicing. For example, there exist limonite nuggets and gold nuggets.

Indeed, that's what i was suspecting :huh:

You rembered me that way, now i use only the system of searching nuggets on the surface to find a vein under an area with a good concentration of them :D but using the sluice searching up to 60m deeper..

Ya, just put a sluice next to a block of gold or iron, and shazam! The maintenance will be a pain in the ass though. Actually I guess you could make a stream of water up to your above-ground base, and either drop in gravel periodically, or you could use RedPower or something and do that.

My good sir, to perform this task, the incredible Bioxx, developer of the TFC mod, created a new type of bucket. A bucket never see before! The blue steel bucket. This bucket can store WATER SOURCES!!!

Buy your own today for the modest price of 299,90 dunk coins.

I WISH I made music for a living. I install satellite dishes... "and there was much rejoicing... yaaaaaaaaaaayyyy...."

My goal is to compose musical pieces for a living in some way shape or form... but like the stones said.. you can't always get what you want.

And another sad story at TFC forums, hope this game can at least give you the recognition. What you're doing here is great!

If they keep posting... anyway... take it as you will... I would take it, mostly, as a little joke, no harm.
