      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."

Unbearable Lag on High Power Computer

16 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I have recently downloaded TerraFirmaCraft to my computer, because I have been watching Spumwack's let's play of the mod, and I became interested. I downloaded and installed the mod following Spumwack's tutorial video, and I log onto the mod. I get unbearable lag, and an average of 7-10 FPS, on tiny render distance, with the latest version of Optifine installed. This is a shock, because I average about 120-130 FPS on far render distance in vanilla Minecraft, even in SMP. How can I run vanilla Minecraft with high graphics on far and get over a hundred FPS, then turn almost everything off and switch to tiny in TFC, and get 7 FPS? I did not notice any change in the performance before or after Optifine. In the mean time, I will try to re-install the mod. Below are my mod specs.

MOD:

*Minecraft version 1.4.2

*TerraFirmaCraft Universal Core Build 66

*Minecraft Forge Universal 6.0.1.341

*Player API universal 1.1

*Optifine 1.4.2 HD U A7

Notes:

I have played Tekkit a lot in the past, and even with that massive mod-pack , I still get 90 FPS on far render distance.

Try without Optifine because TFC acts funny with it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll also go up to the latest builds of everything, meaning a complete re-install. But for now, AP homework awaits me.... :)

Umm... really you should make sure you're using a clean build totally. Try using something like MultiMC and creating a totally clean instance. Start with nothing but the bare minimum.

*Minecraft Forge Universal 6.0.1.341

Also, you are using the wrong Forge. You should be using 354 as stated in the change log.

In what way? Work fine for me.

Also:

354 forge is fine too. Just use Magic Launcher insted of jamming everything into minecraft.jar.

Ok, I have reinstalled everything, using the proper builds and such, and it still didn't get good fps. I the installed Optifine, and magically I get 80-90 fps. The thing is though, I have to play it in windowed version. If I use function-11 to full screen, I go immediately down to 15 fps. I don't mid playing it In windowed version at all though, as I played the game that way for the first 8 months I played the game, so it's like second nature. Thanks for everyone's help, and hopefully this can help some others that may have the same issue. My main problem was that I was using a mix of different builds of the mods.

Hmm maybe I should try playing windowed because I have FPS issues also. Are you using the default size or a maximized window?

I have drastic FPS drop on fullscreen too :/ but if i full size window then no drop. Vanilla runs in window with optifine at SSP between 200-300 FPS!! TFC 50-70 with same options :/ but and that far render, i can play vanilla at extreme if i wait it load a bit :)

i'm not totally sure, but it sounds like ram is the bottleneck for low fps... and here is the conundrum, you want to keep your ram footprint as low as possible while giving the game enough headroom to run with whatever settings you have. try upping minecrafts share little by little and see if it improves fps. i also find the multimc console helpful, if the game does something ...odd, it usually gives some reason for it. check it out while playing the game and see if you get strange messages.
