      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."

[Offline] [0.77.22]Roanoke Challenge Server[No Whitelist][CustomOreGen][Modified][MyTown][B77 Retro]

61 posts in this topic

January 2015 Update: Roanoke, the longest running TerraFirmaCraft server instance, is still chugging along. This month we've upgraded TradeBooth mod and added Steampunk Airships.

 

August 2014 Update: We're still running B77! Remember when the F in TFC stood for Firma and not Food?! We do! Not enough has appealed to us in TerraFoodCraft B78, so we're stuck in the past. And it seems we'll be stuck there even when TFC gets the casserole update: B79! TerraSandwichCraft!

 

Roanoke is back! Roanoke TFC server has a long history with TFC and we put a new spin on it in this fifth iteration of Roanoke. The Roanoke Challenge Server features customized ore generation, other TFC tweaks, chunk protection with MyTown, and trading with CustomNPC vendors and player Trade Booths. Our focus with this iteration is on scarcity, economy, community and competition. We encourage towns to grow their chunk claims aggressively, as we've made it quite affordable. Protect your prospective ore sites with chunk claims and corner the market on an ore or mineral. Roanoke veterans will also recognize a familiar world seed from Roanoke2. New to TFC? Intimidated or put off by the extra mods we run? Our launcher makes installation a breeze and the additional mods compliment TFC and won't take away or diminish your first TFC experience.

Installation/Launcher: http://roanoke.enjin.com/modpack (look for Roanoke #5)

IRC: http://webchat.esper.net/?nick=&channels=lostcolony

Server Website/Forum: http://roanoke.enjin.com

Server Address: lostcolony.servegame.com:26006

World Started: Dec 1, 2013

Server Activity: 460+ Unique Players

Map: http://gamogora.com/misc/roanoke/map/ (from Roanoke 2, settlements may differ)

Dynamic Map: http://lostcolony.servegame.com:8123/

 

We are not TFC purists, we are TFC veterans looking to make the most out of Minecraft's best mod: TFC. NPC vendors may offer items not before available in TFC, like vanilla items. We allow Nether access. You will never see an admin flying around, teleporting, or building in creative mode, everything you see is player resourced and built. We build roads and canals to connect towns, there is no teleportation or home commands and there never will be. There is no virtual currency or instant delivery transactions, instead we use Custom NPC coins, which you must carry around with you and you must bring goods to market (they don't magically appear in your inventory). We have a 360 day year, to make food production and tree growth more meaningful. We are pun friendly.

TFC Customization

  • OreGen: We've replaced the TFC OreGen with our own system to reward people for exploring the surface rather than digging uninspired tunnels at Y60. Gone are the TFC ore blobs, replaced instead with veins that snake their way in all direction under the surface. We also have unique sedimentary bed and kimberlite pipe generation. Anthracite mineral has been added which yields charcoal, but can only be found in the far north. No longer does ore only generate at specific levels, but minerals tend to begin at the surface and snake their way down into the deeps and can ultimately be found at any level. We've also implemented a regionalizing system that makes distinct regions of mineral/ore groups, so that you must trade or prospect over great distances to progress up the metal tiers (this is working very well, as after 2 weeks the server is still stuck in the copper age, unable to find all the ingredients that make up the bronze tier whereas in vanilla TFC someone usually gets to red steel after 5 days). Some regions may be void of ore, others may be rich, it's up to you to wander the world and prospect!
  • Tree Growth: We've nerfed sapling spam (random sapling growth in forest areas), and drastically increased the time it takes for saplings to grow into trees as part of an experiment in scarcity. We want to see mass deforestation and the challenge longer growth time brings to the server population. This might sound foolish, but it has worked really well so far. 40 days in and after 80+ unique players there is still an abundance of trees at spawn.
  • Mountain Tops: We've prevented dirt from covering the tops of high mountains for a unique look and to reveal surface minerals.
  • Misc: There may be a few other tweaks that I can't remember at this time, or that may be implemented in the future.

If you have an IRC client, find an esper.net server and join channel #lostcolony. I have no idea why it kicked you, maybe someone else has the same name and was previously banned?

Sorry bout that, the launcher is a bit buggy. You can do a manual Forge 871 installation under MCLauncher, find the .asielauncher/roanoke folder and move the /config and /mods folders over to the MCLauncher installation and it should work using MCLauncher.

I'll have to install all the mods manually: your launcher naturally won't work on linux! :angry:

Installed the mods manually over the course of an hour, (much of which was spent figuring out I had the wrong versions for things,) only to get everything running and try to connect when I'm informed that I can't join because TFC is missing ID 980. Is this an issue with anyone else or is my download just borked?

We are using a modified version of TFC that includes a new block for Anthracite. The server thread on our http://roanoke.enjin.com/ forum has better detail regarding which versions to download.

I got the TFC itch again (haven't played much of 77) and tried to play on this server last night. It went OK for a while while I was exploring for a nice place to settle down, but then all of a sudden I had my framerate drop to like 1 fps and I couldn't fix it no matter what I did. It seemed to be a server issue because my ping was good (5 bars) and I didn't have any trouble on other servers. It only seemed to happen when I went outside the spawn zone, and for some reason it seemed to be worse with a lot of water around. I tried to boat across the ocean but the chunks wouldn't load faster than I could move and I crashed into an invisible landmass.

 

I suspect maybe my exploration did too much generating of new chunks and broke the server, since it only started after I explored pretty far away. Maybe it just needed a reboot, does the server reboot periodically? I'll try again tonight and see if I have the same issue or not.

Ya, the server restarts every 24h. Or whenever someone stumbles into a sequoia forest for the first time. Maybe have the wrong version of a mod, and causes framerate trouble when you wander near something that uses it. First time I heard of this trouble.

OK thanks for responding. It probably is something on my end. I will try a reinstall.

FYI for anyone else having trouble on this server or with TFC in general, I got around most of my freeze issues by turning off VSync in the video options.

I've been part of this server for about 2..maybe 2 and a half years now, I began when we were just simply Roanoke 2, from there we've had multiple makeovers and started running TerraFirmaCraft alongside Tekkit based modpacks all linked together in irc, this way we have been able to still talk and joke with our mates, whether some have been playing TerraFirma whilst the others on the Tekkit side of the server, we all still can have a laugh!

 

All in all, I've loved this server since I joined, literally haven't found a group of people like this on any other server, just cool and easy going, always up for a laugh and most importantly - Always able to help out when their on-line, whether its an in-game problem, a pc problem, or a life problem you have come up against, needless to say they have helped me through troubles and I'm ever so grateful.

 

I highly recommend to AT-LEAST give this server a try and see what you think of it after 2 weeks,

My guess would be after you see the people on-line here and the richness of character that they all have,

I guarantee you'll become a Roanoker like the rest of us! :P

 

If your looking for tech, you'll find it all on the Ragnarok side of Roanoke, you'll find me there quite often :L

If your looking for towns, trade and commerce, you'll find that at the heart of the Roanoke Community, on the TerraFirmaCraft server :)

 

There's something for everyone's taste over here, and I simply cannot find the words to properly describe how much fun I've had here, come look at some screenshots of the adventures I've had on here and you'll see why I love it so much :P

 

Hope to see you's in-game soon,

~Smoke~

You know I take it back, this server ain't just damn fine, it's magnificently fine. I joined 3 or so years ago back in the beginning of Roanoke 1, and boy has it changed over the years. Many people reading this have probably played TFC before, but I must tell you, thanks to the work of aero and other members of the Roanoke modding community, you really can't call this server just TFC. With Roanoke, you don't have to mine to get far in the game. If you don't want to be a miner, you could be a farmer, lumberjack, blacksmith, etc., or a little bit of everything. But I have to say, the most wonderful thing about Roanoke isn't the custom ore generation, or the npcs, it's the community. Players trade with each other and interact with each other in such a way that it forms bonds from player to player. People on Roanoke aren't just players, they're friends. Whether it's lending a saw, or helping others with problems in-game and out of the game, the family of Roanoke is always there for you. So anyone wanting to join our family and have a great time, consider braving TFC and joining us, here, at Roanoke.

Hey there ghiojo. You need to copy the modpack address from the Roanoke enjin site under the modpack links and then paste it into the add modpack portion of the technic launcher.

Each month, we take a screenshot of Spawntown's bounty for that month. The bounty represents the ingots, gems and diamonds that were sold to NPC vendors in exchange for currency (coins). Here is the haul for this server instance's first month:

Looking forward to seeing the haul for January soon. Also we broke 100+ unique players this week.

You must register on the roanoke.enjin.com site to gain access.

 

If you have registered and still do not have access, you need to post in the Roanoke forums on the same site.
