      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."

where did all the evil mobs go

18 posts in this topic

like the title says ever since i have upgraded i haven't seen that many of them at first i thought that they just spawned a lot less above ground but i found a huge cave and just for fun decided to go and adventure in it with only some torches,a propick and a copper mace. i found lots of useful ore and minirals but i never even heard a zombie/creeper/spider or skelly o.o its kinda eery. i expected to be dead within 5 min because before the update the only way to survive long was full bronze or bisbronze but ended up going a few hours without seeing anyone at all.

I absolutely hate that new mechanic Mojang implemented. It doesn't make any logical sense and encourages "gaming of the system", which kills immersion.

How does the sound of zombies being attacked/attacking someone attracting more zombies make no sense and break immersion?

i think he means that if you punch a zombie every zombie on the loaded map will sudenly see you and path to you and it doesnt matter if its behind a huge mountin it will still attack you. it also then spawns more zombies (normal spawns and also reinforce) that then also see you and charge.

 

in other words if you punch a zombie then good luck. you have just told all of them where you are and what you called their mother.  worse yet is that they will keep coming because you cant kill them faster then they can spawn.

Worse? This is great news. Easier to get exp for higher levels and more HP. Gone are the days of chasing down zombies, now they just come to you!

if you want to get xp then ya its awesome, but most of the time if im trying to do something outside and a single zombie comes at me i can kill it easily but then thats it for the whole night as then the zombie armageddon starts. so instead of just killing him i have to stop what i'm doing and force him to fall into a pit so that i can return to work. just a pain >.<

If you don't want to be bugged by evil mobs at night, you should set the difficulty to peaceful. If not, you'll just have to deal with them. There's no shame in running home, sleep the night away, and watching the zombles burrrrrrnnnn....  B)

It makes no sense because punching a zombie shouldn't make another zombie materialize out of thin air. And because I'm aware of this game mechanic, I know I'm better off not hitting the zombies than to do what makes sense and fight them off. This immediately shifts my brain from "Oh crap I need to survive this zombie attacking me!" to "How can I game this system so more zombies don't pop up from nowhere."

nah i like it that there is some danger in being outside at night but now zombies aren't difficult to kill at all. they hit like kittens but there are just too damn many of them. i kill 20 and suddenly there are more coming out of the woodwork. the only real threats to me are the spiders and skellys / jav skellys as they can actually hurt me.  also sleep lol.

That's when you start using a deep pit... Something i posted in another topic. One punch and the mob flies down the pit to a crushing doom. First i created was too small, cause jav skelly survived the fall... Now i can punch anything down there and it will die :)

 

It is survival and if you play on normal, be prepared for "enemies" during the night. It's like when you go to a wild forest IRL and expect no wild animals to attack you... If you find them and attract their attention, you should act, not complain "OMG, you spawned here?". You're in a hostile territory, what do you expect?

 

Anyway, my pit is near my home wall with one block of a ledge between the wall and the pit. Two blocks above the ground i have a door, so when i lure mobs close, i open the door, attract them close to the pit and "prod" them down to death :) The most difficult are spiders, as they climb walls O.o

i expect that there will be mobs and they will attack me but you dont need a pit to make the zombies weak all you need is any kind of copper or bronze mace/sword and you can cut them down by the hundreds. >.<  if the zombies where hard to kill and where an actual threat then i would be ok with so many of them but they are just so weak. every other mob has something that makes it dangerous but zombies just have numbers.

Their numbers is what makes zombies dangerous.

If the threat comes to that so i have to kill them by the hundreds... I could be shoving them into the pit as fast as swinging my mace or sword. Especially, as such weapons are when i get to bronze or something, which i don't have yet.
