      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."

X-Ray Mod compatible with TFC?

28 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

So I've been really wanting to see what the ore distribution looks like in TFC, but haven't found any mods compatible that would let me do so. I am not doing this to cheat, just tolearn about the ore gen. Does anyone know of one?

There was a texture pack that allowed for this posted here in the forums... Even though the thread was deleted when rules were created for the Texture Packs section. Other than that, i don't really know... :

If you really wanted to, you can just make your own. Open up your texture pack folder and use paint to edit all the non-ore blocks. Never done that myself, though, so...

An xray texture pack wouldn't work to see the ore gen, all it would reveal are pockets of air blocks (caves), and no xray mods work with tfc. If you really are interested in the ore gen

just load a world up in an editor like mcedit and delete the layers of stone, they use the ids 209,210,211 and 212.

In the seeds section someone posted a seed that they had found a super cluster in. and they used some program to remove all the layers. But yeah, you are kinda ruining the fun for yourself if you actually do this, this mod is way more fun with some exploration and experimentation thrown in. This isn't vanilla, you will severely degraded your TFC experience if you do this kind of stuff. And also, if you do end up finding a way to do this, PLEASE do NOT post it anywhere, many people don't want this information and it makes it easier to avoid if it isn't there in the first place. The wiki really does have all you need to know, many parts are intentionally less informative than the VMC wiki, you aren't supposed to have all the answers.

Ok, the title explains all. But remember that using this you WILL ruin your gaming experience (or how you call it)

It's in a spoiler, to be sure:

one does realise if you play a pre 69 build, you can just stick your head into a leaf, and look into solid blocks (just encase a 50x50 area, and place a leaf block on headheight, and look around :D)

This way you can't see the ores, but just the caves. It's useless, because since b68 I believe, this trick doesn't work.

Minecraft doesn't render blocks that don't have at least one face bordering air, thus most ore deposits are not visible through methods like the one you mentioned.

If you want to look at ore distribution (and not cheat):

1. Start a new game that allows the use of /tp. TP in a grid spaced about 200 blocks apart and let the map finish generating before you move on.

2. Make sure the game is in creative mode

3. Use mIDas Gold to turn everything except ID 213, 214, and 215 into air

I tried to use mIDas Gold, but it doesn't seem to work for me. Does it work for anyone else?

Worked for me. Though if you intend to use it to get ores the easy way then let me warn you that it completely takes the fun away from TFC just like the X-ray mod does for Vanilla.

You'll only feel hollow as soon as you get a full set of Steel tools and armor that you practically cheated yourself.

Damn you people like to get angry! I personally don't think it would RUIN your gaming experience... Just because you know where something spawns does not mean you will just be able to magically locate it and mine right to it!

What I would really love for this mod to encompass more of is general knowledge. If I can look up IRL that shale deposits are found in lakes, river deltas, offshore beaches, etc., I'd love to be able to find a location like that in-game and find shale! To my knowledge the game doesn't work quite like this, though I think there are some spots that it does (metals, etc.). Imagine a game without a wiki -- if you need to know something, look it up for realz!

This way, if someone says, 'Hey, where do I find shale?' everyone can just point them to Google and let them find out themselves! There won't be anymore, 'Don't give out information!' because the information will all be based on the real world, and therefore easily accessible for everyone.

Not entirely sure what the point of your posts are dunkleosteus people like to be curious and it is minecraft therefore if he wants to see how something works or even if he wanted to cheat it is how he chose to play you can't entirely enforce how every single person plays TFC. If they want to play it a certain way that is their choice. Some might install a backpack mod which I'm sure is fully compatible with TFC that ruins the whole you can only carry so much experience in TFC does that mean we should delete any server using the backpack mod out of the server section ?

Also, he won't get really any cheaty information, as long as he doesn't do this in his survival world.

Ores don't work like they do in VMC, especially regarding level, in TFC all that matters is stone type and if it is a surface layer or not. Essentially that means you won't find more native copper (or any other ore) at level 52 than at 98.

I tried making my own texture changes with paint, but where I wanted to remove the texture, I only got white space rather than transparency, can somebody reccommend a better (free) program I can use for this?
