      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."

Snow & Winter

11 posts in this topic

Hello,

I just came here to ask if, with TerraFirma Craft 2, the snow will start again to fall.

I know there is the forge problem, but maybe in the meantime some progress was made...

I really like this mod, actually it's the only reason I play Minecraft, but I miss the atmosphere you can get in a dark cold winter night, safe & hot in your cozy house, with the snow falling outside.

Thank you!

I'm pretty sure they will re-add snow as soon as forge makes the hook, don't worry.

Thank you for the answer, but I've read in some other post in this forum that the developers were asking the forge developers for the hook, and this was months ago, so, is there some update?

What the forge developers plan to do?

well, there seems to be little to no infromation currently on TFCII and what it's going to have, but guessing it's going to be fairly similar to TFC, but with quite a few major changes pretty much like any mod revision like IC2, EE3, TC3 and the like

well thaumcraft 3 has the same basic principals of TC2 research things, and then make said thing using magics. TC3 just made it all better. TC1 on the otherhand was rather sad,

True, but other than the very basic aspect of it, it was fundamentally different in pretty much every other aspect of the game.

I do agree that TC 1 was sad though, You look at it now, and you would barely even know that TC3 used to be TC1.

But again, if you want to get technical, TFCII is a complete rewrite of TFC, so the code itself will be different, but keepign the same idea behind it. But that is getting technical. :|

i guess the same could be said about IC and IC2, except the difference was that Alblacka actually learned how to code well in IC2, because for all its good parts, IC1 was rather terrible, like remember the cable blocks? yeah.

but yes, sometimes a complete re-write is neccesary,i tend to think of it as you start with the mod, a piece of paper, and each new added feature is like a sticky note glued onto the original mod idea, after a while, the mod starts getting choked up with all these things and has become either a completely different thing, or has become so laden down by these that is cases to work well, so then, you need to get a new sheet of paper, and, using the ideas on the sticky notes, add them all into the new sheet of paper

The thing is (I think) that when you start working on a project this big, you can't write down everything you will ever add to it before you start working on it. There are always ideas you think of on the fly and then implement them. Stuff like that and features that are not permanent (e.g. nerfed chest size) clunk up the code so it's no longer efficient and easy to read. So the main point of the rewrite I believe is to get all of the new features to fit in and work together, getting rid of all the unnecesary stuff left behind, which might lead to better performance aswell.
