      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."

Minecarts are going to be removed, so it doesn't really matter.

the problem is in 1.5 minecarts are pushed by furnace minecarts which we don't have in tfc.. perhaps they can be put in series and pushed with the powered rails?

What's about color glass and glass-making? It's seems very good.

we have already tested pushing carts with powerrails, as soon as you use a container cart you can no longer push with boosters, so the furnace cart is the only possibility.

But Collision mechanics are being overhauled in 1.5 for the purpose of pushing additional minecarts.. so it might work. I'd test the snapshots for 1.5 if you want a place to start

Are you going to retexture those? The bricks looked a bit flat, and the ingots were a solid colour.

Really excited though.

The ingots aren't a solid colour. To save time, I render the bricks using the metal block textures already in the texture folder. Because of the way minecraft renders blocks, it looks for a flat picture for each "block", similar to how player skins are set up, with each face of the block layed out flat. The block textures are only 16x16, so to fit all the faces of the block in the same texture, I lowered the resolution. This means that the ingots are at maximum, 8x8, but NOT a solid colour.

And whats this about minecarts being removed in TFC1? As the only dev, it's a little surprising to learn what I'm apparently going to be implementing.

I hope you will think about doing something for breeding in future.. :D for the video, at first i was a little upset for the changes for create brick blocks, since is more difficult to create a stone roof on our houses , for the stones picked up around is weird because in these days i thought that it was unrealistic to get a cobblestone block from a single rock, now is better and consumes a large amount of all the rocks i collect asd

Why not use Gypsum in mortar recipe?

That would put an unused mineral to gut use.

note: I started playing Dworf Fortress, and now i'm getting all kinds of ideas :)

Imagine a world where you need gypsum for bloomeries. Think on that for a while.

Dunk, tell us, please - when you plan, at least tentatively, to release 76 update, or to make the second part of the stream?

when I finish the features. You never know what bugs may arise and how long it will take to fix them, but I can say that the remaining work isn't brand new, it should just be a bit of a repeat of what I've already done. Mostly render-related.

Yeah thats a good point, however what if gypsum could be used in mortar just like flux? So even though its not required, it could still be useful?

I stand corrected.

Bloomeries works only with brick blocks.

It would still be possible though, only MUCH harder.

You would have to work with zinc, tin or bismuth and a firepit, making enough pickaxes and propicks until you find Gipsum... and then be able to make a bloomery.

Come to think of it, i would probably need about 2 or 3 tin pickaxes to find gipsum... but maybe i'm just lucky at mining :)

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't this update make cobblestone more expensive than stone bricks?

1 cobble stone = 4 rocks

1 stone brick = 1.25 rocks, 0.125 sand, 0.125 flux, 0.125 buckets of water

Stone brick could be considered less expensive, but it requires more resources that aren't as easy to get

I rarely upgrade right when a Minecraft update comes out so count me among those hoping it's released for 1.4.7 first.
