      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."

In my opinion, what fits perfectly to this mod is what happens in real life: when you die, there is a dead body (with all the things of the inventory) which is loot-able. You respawn in your home (in your spawn point), as normally, and have to go to the place of your dead to get your stuff back, which is in the dead body (THIS IS SO COOL!!!). :D

Ok, and I have a very good idea, if this dead body stays more than three days, it happens the following things:

-You get poisoned when you are near the dead body

-And your hunger bar reduces faster. (optional, I think the poison idea is better )

Ok, so, if that dead body is far away of your home, maybe you wouldn't want to do anything with it, but if it is near your home and near your minecraft environment, you would want to remove it from your sight. To remove the dead body you have two options:

-Incinerate the body, with fire.

-Bury the dead body

And in the case you die in the water, the dead body will be floating in the water, and if the three days passes, a part of the lake or river will be contaminated, so again, you will have to remove the dead body With the contaminated water, it will go to normal water when it rains :)

Bioxx, this is A VERY COOL IDEAAA!!, ISN'T IT?

This would fit perfectly with Terrafirmacraft! TFC is a very cool mod and fun to play, its challenging, because it adds realism with all the different types of rocks, metals, wood, the way you do things..., all changes!,but the most important thing is that is fun too.

I think my idea removes the problem of suicide because if they want to do that, you have to remove the dead body and all that process.

I hope you enjoyed my idea, I`m just giving my two cents to improve this awesome mod!

And also, it would be very fun to see dead bodies in minecraft!

You could have for the first time in minecraft a cemetery!! With all the tombs under the dirt, with that tombstones... EPIC!

I have to say that I created this account only to post this, so I hope you liked it. And sorry for my bad english, it is not my mother language ;)

I don't know. This idea is kinda creepy. Corpses in video games are something.

The pile of bodies made by a griefer at spawn might cause a crash or two.

Perhaps have an option to turn it off on servers?

i dunno, the whole havign the body still be there thing kinda conflicts with respawning

where does this new body come from that you respawn with?

also yeah it would be kinda creepy finding your own body just lying thre.

i've kinda been thinking abut respawn mechanics, and i dunno. just magickally re-appearing after dying is kinda odd, a little too convenient, doesnt really give a reason to fear death

i never liked the bed-reseting-spawn-point mechanic, it just doesn't make sense. so for that maybe we could have some manner of "totem" or "obelisk" made with gems and infused with magicks that you can bind yourself to so that you can respawn there. and if you don't have one, you die for good. either that, or when you die, you respawn many years after your death, so that when you do eventually find your old home, everything is all broken down and abandoned.

I like the respawning many years after your death idea.

I sometimes feel you just want this mod made REALLY hard, I'm whith you 0/

 

the body/respawn thing can be worked around I think, by making corpses non entity (just like a block)

 

I like the idea of a respawn toten too, good use for gems, but remenber NO magic allowed on TFC, so it can't be enchanted

And I'm to a random position respawn if you don't have it (assuming the corpse sistem is there)

Just like if you respawn as other people in the world (you're not revived)

The totem should be called something like a Idol god, and have a sacrifice spot, so if you want to be respawned you have to kill a baby sheep in that spot!!(yeah near impossible respawn)

It could have multi level totens (like a crappy one, made of natural stone, some brass and gems, revives you almost death,slow,blind,nausea,for like 2 days! the others going up improing your respawn stats)

high tier totems shoud be made of really rare things like gold and diamonds, or maybe giving use for some of the useless alloys, like brass I've put on the 1st tier

 

The totens can get angry if they're "uncharged"(you've been respawned and didn't sacrifice the sheep for the next)

So it starts to spawn monsters for some time, and end up exploding like a powder keg if stays hungry for too many time (I've think of that to avoit exploit of it like a mobspawner, but could just dissapear too..

 

I've read that again and looks like code impossible... (but I reaaly don't know coding)

good idea anyway, posting!

Dats right, let's make the game unplayable upon death, that'll teach those that treat it like a game!

 

Remember this: most deaths happen at early levels of game progression. This means you can't sacrifice a baby sheep, because you don't have any. And you can't build a totem out of stone, because top of what you have is cobble, and don't even start thinking about brass and gems at that point. And then even more happiness: once you die without a totem built - you're in the middle of nowhere, lost what little progress you've made and god forbid you didn't write your home coordinates somewhere on a piece of paper (which is in itself a dumb idea noone should ever indulge), because that means you almost certainly forced to start over.

yeah no stoneage respawning, (cave men didn't live much, tough)

But I wasn't reeealy serious in this sugestion rsrsr

 

Yeah just like this, if you die without a totem you're not the same people anymore

I think stone and brass got easyer than sheep in the 77and, last resource for who don't want to die is just esc and peacefull

Brass? Maybe, if you lucky enough to have a place where its components come from. Which is not guaranteed what so ever. Stone? No and no, it is the same thing as before.

So, basically what you are saying is - if player is not okay with game continuously throwing him over a dick, he is allowed to cheat? That's never a good design choise, you know.
