      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."

Spumwack's Dropping TFC

14 posts in this topic

Link to his vid

.

Well Spumwack's given up on TFC, which came as a bit of a surprise as it sems to be his top rated show.

I really enjoyed it while it lasted but I seemed to be thinking 'Just read the f'ing wiki' at least once per episode and that was while he had Dunk on board. JuryDutySummons seems to start and stop worlds and at least one other youtuber totally failed at TFC.

Is TFC too hard to Let's Play? Are there any good youtubers you know of? Should Dunk have taken Spumwack by the nose and led him through the game?

Thoughts please.

simply put, there isnt enough stuff to show in TFC thats not just vanilla MC + chisel. like he said in the vid: if he would ever have found his precious red steel, that would'v been it, nothing left but build build build and build, and he could'v done that in vanilla, since TFC doesnt accommodate for that much exciting differences (chisel is awesome but not interesting to watch 500k times)

thats why i hope that in tfc2, either our community shapes up and finds its own goals, or we get more to do beyond gather materials and move up shop accordingly.

We need more to do in TFC, in tech mods, however ridiculous they are, there is always a new/more efficient way to do stuuf. In tfc, at the start it is exciting, but then in just ends. Imma hoping tfc2 fulfils this.

I enjoy working with people in building bases but it seems like everyone quits without notice or goes off to find a new town constantly.

I can certainly sympathize with his reasons (see my post here where I mentioned similar thoughts once TFC2 was announced: http://terrafirmacra...4044#entry54044 ). I've stopped running my TFC server and only hop on single player now and then just to marvel at the scenery (which is quite enjoyable). I'm still fairly active in making suggestions over in the TFC2 forums because I sincerely hope that TFC2 can address the harsh progression drop-off we currently have in TFC1, since there is so much potential with the mod and what the mod does have is incredibly unique and creative. It concerns me that the driving focus behind TFC2 is all about "survival" though, since a frustratingly difficult experience isn't my cup of tea.

A shame to see his TFC series end like it did; I've seen every episode and it was his Let's Play that made me try the mod out in the first place. Hopefully the ending serves as a nudge to Bioxx on what's really missing in TFC while he works on TFC2.

Bioxx knows about it already. It's the same problem that's always existed, and the same reason I eventually stopped my own tfcraft LP after about 5 months of daily episodes, about the time this guy was getting started. It is nothing new or particularly insightful. It only remains to be fixed.

I'm thinking about starting an LP for TFC. However, I think its going to have a spin on it. I agree with killster that there might not be enough content in TFC by itself and when build 76 comes out, I will be doing a world reset on my server. Our community is anticipating this because at the same time, we've been playing around with some other complimentary mods, specifically Bukkit forge (i.e. essentials, towny and iConomy)

What I plan on basing my LP around is kind of like a day in the life of a TFC server. I'm going to produce goods that I will sell to other players, build up a town and a nation... possibly make some enemies with a rival nation... something like that. An episode might consist of planting crops and then building shops. The next episode might consist of selling the crops or producing foods with them to sell etc. Not necessarily based around TFC, but based around server play on a TFC server.

I really liked the noobish approach of spumwack. I enjoyed watching him fail only to realise his mistake. I thought it was good he didn't just go to the wiki. Me being a dwarf fortress player means I already know a lot about what the game mechanics should be and I can't really avoid being a noob at this mod. I was thinking of making a mod for minectaft that makes it make more sense but now I don't really bother thinking about it since even basic ideas I had like knapping and chiselling stone have been added by this mod. Back on topic: I am indeed rather unhappy that the series had to end. I've not been able to find any other good lets play of the mod. I think the way the series had been done was fine and I will definitely miss it.

actually CISPA already passed house of representatives and all that (and im european) so unless obama veto's it like he said he would, we're looking at a passed CISPA, which would fuck over the internet, especially since they CANCELLED the clause protecting you from having to hand over your social media account passwords to your employers, working retroactively

(aka, your boss now owns all your social media, and can do what he wants with it 'MURICA)

It has to pass through the Senate and the two versions of the bill reconciled before it ever gets to the President's desk. From the looks of things, the Senate isn't even going to let it come up for a vote, so it's dead in the water.
