      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."

145 posts in this topic

This Server has been closed! As promised, here is the link to the Server Files. I will leave this thread open in case anyone wants to announce they wish to takeover the server.

 

Server Files(Link will expire on 7/24/2014)

 

New Subreddit:  http://www.reddit.com/r/Tomatonet
Please move all server related communications to that subreddit.

Hello! I have created a new Terrafirmacraft server for people to enjoy. This server is a 24/7 server that is automatically backed up on a daily basis. My plan is for the server to be mainly automatic and to be able to play for a long time with a sense of continuity.
 
Why choose this server?

  • [*]24/7 server on a physical box. 2xQuad Core Xeon CPU's with 16GB of ram dedicated to just Terrafirmacraft. [*]Experienced server admin with years in real life System Administrator's positions. [*]Guaranteed Continuity. The server will be up for as long as possible with no resets. As this mod is subject to change it can happen that a reset is required from time to time. In this case I will provide the entire server world and configs needed to run it before I reset the server(on a public S3 share for at least 6 months). This will mean something you build today will not disappear suddenly tomorrow. [*]Backup's are done hourly to itself(RAID 1 array) and daily to Amazon's S3 service(Same service Netflix uses). Therefore the chance of complete world loss is very low.

Mods required for this server.

  • [*]Terrafirmacraft 77.21 
Link [*]Archimedes Ship Mod 1.4.4 for 1.6.2 Link [*]Custom NPC's(Used to trade for ship blocks and the economy) Link [*]Extrafirma v1.0.3 Link [*]Tradebooths v0.6.2.1 Link

Mods that are optional but are supported server side.

  • [*]Smart Moving

Server Address

  • [*]tfc.tomatonet.net [*]or kzo.tomatonet.net:60001(only use this if the above address doesn't work)

IRC

  • [*]irc.foonetic.net:6667 [*]Channel: #tomatonet

Rules

  • [*]Listen to the mods and admins [*]No griefing. Even if it isn't in a mytown protected area. [*]
NO AUTOSLUICES [*]Stealing is allowed within the boundaries of the PVP rules below. MyTown is there for a reason, use it. [*]Circumventing the rules will result in a permaban. [*]Ruining the land with powder kegs will result in a ban.

PVP Rules

  • [*]You may attack people outside of MyTown protected areas
ONLY. If you are trying to steal from someone, they have a right to protect themselves even in mytown areas. [*]NO SPAWN CAMPING. You kill them, leave them alone afterwards. [*]You may not destroy blocks of someone else! Doing so will be a possible ban.

The Economy
 
The new economy is meant to encourage working together and to make people collectively come together to build a town. The economy is designed to be hard at first but work well once it has been built up. This is a WIP and I would appreciate your feedback in this thread. We are testing the chocobo mod with TFC in a test server to see if it is viable with this economy.
 
Conversions(Use the Exchanger NPC to change coinage)

  • [*]64 bronze coins = 1 iron coin [*]64 iron coins = 1 gold coin [*]64 gold coins = 1 diamond coin

Getting money

  • [*]Getting money is easy, bread(2bc each) and ingots(low tier only) make the backbone of this economy. The point of the server shop is to just get the economy started. You WILL NOT be able to buy goods from the server store that are normally found in tfc. This is designed to encourage player to trade with others via each other, labor or tradebooths.

Bank

  • [*]You can buy a spot in the server bank for some gold coin. This is to allow people who are not in towns to protect valuable goods.

Bazaar(Not done yet)

  • [*]A server bazaar will be setup soon that will allow the player to sell their goods in the server spawn from a tradebooth they own. There is a limit of 1 tradebooth per person in the spawn. Have as many as you like in your town or place of building.

Getting a town

  • [*]Town prices are meant to be a very expensive endeavor that requires many people to work together to achieve. As of this writing the price is 2 diamond coins. This is meant to be a limiting factor on the economy to A: Keep town spam down, B: Buy towns and land will be what eventually sets the prices people trade at and C: Keep people working together. 
Talk to the Duke in server spawn to see about getting a town. He is also who you need to talk to in order to get emerald coins which are required to claim chunks.

Buying redstone items

  • [*]See Server Spawn!

Server Emergencies
 
I can be called by the irc bot from within game by saying tomato tomato tomato. This should only be used in EMERGENCIES ONLY. The bot emails me when you do that, so only do it in emergencies.
 
What is a Qualified Emergency?

  • [*]Inventory wipe from server crash [*]Server world corruption [*]Prolonged server downtime(2 hours+, in case of a long backup running)

Lag is NOT an emergency. It's on a small business connection, from time to time it will lag or act up and there is nothing I can do about it. The only lag I can fix is mem leaks(which is what the 2 hour reboots is)
 
 
Tomatomod Server mod
 
Tomatomod is a server side mod of TFC that I have created to change or add server side features to my server. As of right now that only changes the snow melting code and what it falls on. Soon this will also be for things like: Cheaper Powder Keg recipe, super deep snow in the arctic, etc. This DOES NOT require a special version of tfc. I have included it here for the time being as this is just a server side mod(more of just a changing of the TFC source) for the server.(Mods if you want me to move it, let me know)
 
Tomatomod server source:https://github.com/tomato3017/TFCraft
 
Changelog

1.3.0 Changed the way snow melts so it melts above 2c instead of 0c. This will help stop the constant lag from snow melting and freezing during spring and summer.



1.2.0 Added ability to disable sluices from spawning gems. This is good if you have a gem based economy.[EXPERIMENTAL BRANCH ONLY] Backported the sequoia bug fix that is in the git code branch, but was never merged when they compiled 77.21.

1.1.0 Made powder keg only need 128 gunpowder so they are actually useful for blast mining.

1.0.0Added the ability for tfc to quickly melt all snow and ice if the temp is above 5c. This is to prevent ships from hitting ice in the middle of the summer.Made snow not fall on non full block items. This will prevent snow on stairs. chiseled blocks, slabs, signs, etc.

Screenshots! Including some baby pictures :)

 

Immediately after joining the server, I headed to Thalassa's Watch. It was the middle of the night, and my first glimpse of (pre)civilization was oh so sweet.

Tomato and Acidreflux had a small fortified area where I stayed the night.

When morning came, we got right to work. Soon I had a mine established, where I would eventually find our first iron ore.

It wasn't long before Thalassa's Watch became a much nicer place than it was my first night!

And this is just the beginning. Come start your own town and help make this world more diverse and interesting!

Are you using Archimedes 1.6.2-1.4.3 or 1.4.2? 1.4.3 is the latest, but the server is running 1.4.2. If you are using the older version, do you have a link for it?

I'm getting the same problem as dgbowers above me. Is there a link I can find for 1.4.2, which is the version FML says I need to have.

Sorry everybody! Apparently Archimedes decided to update his mod like 5 minutes after Tomato went off for the night, so I've taken the liberty of uploading the current version of Archimedes Shipmod that I'm using.

 

You can grab it here.

 

EDIT: Archimedes Ship mod has been updated, please download the latest version.

 

Hopefully that works for you guys.

Nice server, hope to find some time to join and play soon. :)

 

Unrelated but important point for you and anyone else that wants to administer servers (not just TFC/Minecraft):

 

  • Backup's are done hourly to itself(RAID 1 array) and daily to Amazon's S3 service(Same service Netflix uses). Therefore the chance of complete world loss is very low.

 

Having an hourly backup to S3 is great, and fits the definition of "backup". However, RAID is not a backup. RAID is designed to promote uptime and/or storage capacity, not to provide data safety. If you're running a server and want to guard against data loss, make sure you do what tomato is doing and make backups of your data to an off-server resource (cloud, tape, NAS, external HDD, etc).

 

I'm not trying to be a pedant, I just hear too many horror stories of people thinking they're covered because they're running a mirror and end up losing everything.

I do backups to the RAID 1 as well. This is mainly a convenience as it reduces the bandwidth consumption involved with offsite backups.

 

 

Basically my backup system goes as follows.

 

1: Hourly backups to another folder using rdiff and some custom python scripts.

2. Daily backups to another folder as above.

3. Daily s3 incremental backup that takes longer but stores it for a much longer time(approximately 3 months)

4. Weekly full backup to another folder on the RAID 1.

5. Monthly full s3 backup. I keep 3 months of backup chains.

 

Above you can see the backup's to the RAID 1 are more for just multiple sources of the same information. Those are mainly used in case of corruption issues(ie server crash that  causes chunk errors).

 

In the unlikely event of a dual hdd crash, I would resort to my s3 backups. This makes a possible data loss of up to 24 hours depending on when the HDD failure occurs in relation to the last backup. There is a chance of the backup chain being corrupt. I am considering going to weekly full s3 backups to help mitigate this as much as possible.

Also I will be updating the server(again, sorry) to archimedes 1.4.3 within the next few hours. At the same time I will be updating my server side modded tfc jar to fix the vanilla snow bugs like falling on signs. It also has a quick unfreeze that will automatically get rid of all ice and snow in a chunk if its above 5c. This will prevent unforeseen boating accidents :)

TFC updated to 77.14, smartmoving installed, and IRC chat enabled.
 
NOTE: This requires forge 871!!!

 

Due to HP bug I have rolled back 45 min to TFC 77.13. Due to this issue, I will in the future be having a 1 week waiting period before updating. Smartmoving and IRC were retained on the server.
