      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."

Some server back-end mods that you may optionally download the client side components for, should you wish to!

Please note, these are completely optional and by no means required in order to connect. Only a legitimate copy of Minecraft, Forge and TFC are required.

If you have a request for a mod that does not require a client side component, please let me know and I will look into it!

I am sorry to ask you this kind of question, why is the server closed all the time?

You are updating server regularly, but I have never seen the server is opened.

Could let me know how it is possible?

The images don't show up, try using imgur.com to post them or use the attachment feature of these forums. The server is up all the time, you can go to the tfc.happydiggers.net website and see the map with people playing. Must be a connection problem on your end. Make sure you're putting the port in the address field, like: "tfc.happydiggers.net:4000"

The server is open all the time. Chances are you are blocked in the firewall.

The server uses a country based, a threat based and a spam based block list which are updated daily. Which means known spammers (and countries that send A LOT of spam like Korea, China, India, Russia, Turkey, Vietnam, Ukraine, Brazil, Venezuela, Pakistan, etc.), hackers and bot nets are blocked as much as possible.

If you are from one of those countries, just send me your IP and I'll add you to the whitelist. Go to http://what-my-ip.org/ to see what your IP is.

New to TFC (just figuring out bronze making in a singleplayer world) and looking for a server to play on, and this feels like the most active one.How's the server's community toward new players? And how's the server in general?

Since we enforce the rule that people respect the staff and other players you should find that our server isn't hostile towards new players. Also PVP is turned off so we don't have squads of players going around killing the newbies or players with lesser gear. That being said, most players on the server are genuinely nice people willing to help out others.

Some towns are actively searching new, unknown, players. Others like to see how new people behave a little bit first. It all depends on who is online at the time when you join. You could always start your own town, or maybe visit a few towns and talk to people and get to know them. You can see the large amount of towns we have available on Dynmap.

Fun factoid. The HappyDiggers TFC server so far has seen 1049 individual players since the map was updated to the 0.78.x builds. Of which ~300 joined the server since etho released his first TFC video 4 days ago.

I can see that. First heard of TFC from Arkas's and Pakratt's LP.

And it's been a nice server so far. Was on later than I should (1:30 AM) and was travelling north to untouched lands. Currently around 260, 5560 (near Mysticbug's house) and might settle down northeast of Inferium and Peat. Personally, I feel setting up with a nice hut and gear before forming/joining any town is best.

EDIT :

Question with the plug-ins, was trying to lock a chest but it didn't give me premissions because I was in the wild. So, do I have to make a town (or equivilant) to be able to lock any chest or doorways? Figured it out.

I was having a rough night. I know the screen shot is small and dark but that is about 15 zombies and 2 baby zombies coming at me. There is a little thatch tower off to the side they just knocked me off of with the help of two spiders.

I'm so sad... I was banned from the server...

 

I know I did break the rules, and in a way I deserve a ban, but this server was the most fun I had had in a long time. I was really having fun, but I broke the rules, and, well, payed the price I guess.

 

Well I guess thats just the way things happen. My life clearly sucks too much to have fun...

If you wish to appeal a ban, please go to our community website, and check the "Ban/UnBan Requests" section. Please mention which server you've been banned from, we run several.

Server is getting pretty crowded at times. In the screenshot above we had 51 people on.

 

The server will now start kicking players that have been idle for 10 minutes. After 5 minutes you go AFK, then 5 minutes after that you are automatically kicked. This has not further bearing on your status on the server and should not be considered punishment of any kind. It's just to help reduce lag (teh luvs) and so other players can get a chance to play as well :)

Starting tomorrow the HappyDiggers TFC server will have 35 player slots available. Right now the HappyDiggers TFC server is always populated. During the quiet hours there are 10+ people on, during peak hours we max out at 50.

 

As many players have noticed, TFC doesn't perform as well as we'd like it to under those circumstances. There is just too much going on and some mechanics(multi-block structures, mobs, chunk updates upon loading) are just too poorly optimized at this time for any server to keep up. I have long put off reducing the amount of slots because we, and many players, felt that it's preferable to be able to play with lag (teh luv) rather then not being able to play at all.

 

However due to the increased popularity of TFC there are now more active servers available for players to choose from. So I encourage players to visit those servers as well and share the player base across the community. I've always believed that diversity is what makes Minecraft great, and that also goes for different kinds of Minecraft servers :)

PSA: please keep the amount of animals you keep to a minimum, they can cause quite a bit of lag.

 

This afternoon I saw the following when analyzing server performance using Opis:

Posted Image

 

It shows 1 chunk using 2.4ms of processor time each tick. Given that there should be 20 ticks in each second, one tick may last a maximum of 50ms. Out of those 50ms, 2.4ms was used just for that chunk.

 

When I teleported to the chunk I saw the following:

There were approximately 126 chickens in that chunk, using about 1/20th of the total server capacity. In other words, 20 of those pens would completely keep the server occupied leaving no room for anything else without causing lag.

 

Please don't keep any more animals then you are actually using. It will help keep the server as lag free as possible for all the players on it :)

Some statistics for those who like stats :)

At the time I'm posting this, the HappyDiggers TFC server has been visited by 2110 unique players and send+received a total 5.6TB of data the past month.

I'm working on setting up a more detailed stats page which will show individual player's stats. Stay tuned!

Is there anywhere an instruction on how to setup shop on this server?

There currently isn't any kind of shop mod/plugin running on the server. All shops are trade posts made by players.

 

If enough people are interested in making their own shop, I'll consider facilitating it through some sort of plugin. It'll probably be a sign shop since that's easiest to use and most reliable in mixed Forge/Bukkit servers.

 

So let me know what you guys think :)
