      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."

TFC FANART!!!!

That is very awesome!! I do like the blue one a little more, but they are both kick ass. I am thinking that a black, leather-bound hilt with the pommel showing would make the red of the blade pop out more. Either way, superbly done!!!!

Hahahaha. xD That is EXACTLY how I was when I read you post to Dunk that piece of code about forest particles or something.

:P

EDIT: Everyone liked the Blue Steel one, so.... RED STEEL!!!

Posted Image

I don't like it as much as my blue steel one though. It just doesn't fit. The red color just doesn't fit with the sword as good in my opinion.

The lighting seems a little off...

Ya I'll try that. I have a really nice leather material somewhere in my archive of over 9000!!!!! nah jk more like OVER 400!!! ( doesn't have the same ring to it) materials. So yeah I'll have to find it. I will do another version of it tomorrow though. The torch is taking sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long to bake.

I know. Something is bugging me there.... I can't figure out what though. Maybe I made it too shiny... The Blue steel one is far better IMHO.

I really think the lighing in the red steel one doesn't feels natural... it just looks like a light red stain in the sword, not like an effect of light over the blade. In the Blue steel one, while it's also a light blue stain in some way, the center of it looks clearly white, and fades to blue slowly, just like it would in real life; not a single colour stain, but a slow gradient of colours. In the red steel one, it's just... a stain :

(My grandma used to teach art, and my big brother has art classes as well, so i know some stuff about art...)

All right, so I worked a bit more on the Red Steel Sword. Tell me what you guys think:

Imgur was down, and I really wanted to get this up, so I used flickr. I will upload it to imgur when imgur comes back up. :)

I like that red one better.. the latest one that is. It is less.. perfect. You can see the grain in the metal and the lighting looks more defined. ;)

That's much better :3

Thank you. :) I was experimenting with it and it was really bugging me how it kept looking so..fake. The image might be a bit noisy though. Alas, that is the problem with unbiased rendering systems like Cycles. If I wanted to get that noise free, I would have to render that at 500-1000 passes. (probably closer to the former) This was rendered at 75 passes..:P

Dude, what the fuck is it with the TFC community being so talented? Seriously; that's some really nice blender art and I have no clue what you are gibbering about. Sounds legit though. This makes me INTENSELY excited for any TFC animations you make. You shod make a YouTube channel just for them and make more than one. Take your time on each one and make quality ones. Have arch help you with the writing too. You could seriously help this mod out, a lot! Especially with Menoch's music in here... *drools*

Yeah, sorry I haven't jumped into the discussion there, it's been and is going to be a tough school week, so I won't have time but I will be taking any free time I can manage to write out some story concepts. I also have a passion for concept art, despite my current meager talents with it, so I could be of some help there :P

Also, I have a few things I'm working on art wise for this thread, maybe I'll even write a story to post here. I guess that counts as art, maybe I'll illustrate it as well :)

I am still posting art you know. It gets a little derailed, a piece of art brings it back on rail for a few posts, and the cycle begins again. So you are only partially right.

If you think about it in terms of a true/false model, being partially right means he is completely wrong. :)

True...But people don't really think that often in a true/false model. Good point though. Sorry for late reply lol.

It is blood allright you have no idea how long it took for steve to kill that deer. Arterial blood. Look through this convo and you wil;l get why it is a bismuth sword. NVM that was a PM.

But ya. It is part of an advertisment type thing for TFC made in a 3D modelling and animation software. Menoch and Achartran are helping too. Don't want to give away too much 'cause I want it to be a surprise, but let's just say that I will be posting updates of props on here.

Because today is the KILL THE DEERS DAY, then IDK.
