      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."

[TFC 0.76.X] Terra Bow Mod (Abandoned)

78 posts in this topic

I think you should add some recipes for primitive arrows, using a saw to cut logs into many arrow shafts is moderately high tech, for stone age you would get sticks, straight thin branches from trees are good, picture below shows some good examples, larger branches could be used to make bows, thinner ones for arrow shafts or spears/javelins.

Now you do need to attach the point and feathers to the arrow (although arrows don't need feathers on them, I do archery and when making arrows you can test them with no feathers to see if they fly straight, if they do, they are perfect, although still a good idea to put feathers on after). As I see the mod only allows using glue to attach them, feathers can easily be attached to the shaft using string, and a point can also be attached with string, below picture gives an example, and the second one shows a point attached with both string and glue, the glue in this case looks like bitch tar.

hm, i had some ideas recently

1.: knife rightclicking on trees = bark (only from some trees)

bark in a ceramic vessel (you have to fill it up) and then burn it in the pit u get a vessel full of primitive glue (maybe refill it in a jug?)

2.: maybe implement rape as an crop. rape grain could be grinded in an quern to rapeseed oil (you need an jug at the output slot. you should need quite some grain to fill up a jug

this oil can be used to protect your bows. (maybe it adds an buff?)

and it could be a fuel for laterns XD

I have a pretty much working version of this updated in my dev environments, just some texture issues and TFC API changes to account for, if anyone is interested I could upload early next week, all credit remains with aeroc
