      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."

I used this design to build my house in my single player game. It's a nice first house after your thatch hut.

Built the basic design on a couple of play through and did my own interior, gives off a safe and warm vibe when you have the fire running, tried to get mrcrayfishes furniture mod running but alas it didn't want to play nice.  My normal first house is digging a crawl space in the side of a clay deposit, using smart movement crawling to get in and out, great for the first few nights until you get enough resources.

Started in a northern region and this design fit in nicely with the viking theme that developed in our game.  It's nice to head into the long house on a snowy day and toss some wood in the fire pit to warm up.

This is my current home, on the right I have the very basic look of the design of this forum used for storing food.
On the left I have a tradition pit house which follows the same theme.  The walls are a simple 3 high palisade to keep the mobs out.

I am currently at the bronze age, other images can be found here.

Wait, am I missing something? I feel really dumb but how does the grain in those plank blocks on the floor go different directions? Is that a texture pack thing? A TFC feature that I'm totally missing?

 

Very nice house, too!

You can place plank items down and make a floor with them. The direction that you place them determines the direction of the grain.

 

Edit: Plank Items, not Plank Blocks.

Ah, so each of those apparent blocks is just 8 plank items layed out. Nice! I guess I just automatically saw them as planks (block) but somehow rotated 90 degrees.

That's a really good starter house!

I like it.

 

If only I could build that well

you could always do half the floor in plank blocks, just to save you the time and rendering.

Nice, i think i will use it for my world since the only wood in a 2000x2000+ radius is white elm, which is my least favorite wood so now i can cover it :D

I love this house style!

 

I just built a variation on it, including a charcoal pit room, pit kiln alcove, and room for a bloomery.

 

The finished product can be seen on my Let's Play.

Very nice and cosy, I never thought of making something like that!

I love how cosy you can make a home - so much so that I have on occasion shivered and have a warm feeling inside when I come home and get out of the rain / snow :)

I like this style of housing, sort of early Scandinavian style houses.  Also seems easy to build and an efficient use of space :)  I will definitely use this the next time I move somewhere else as a first house.
