      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."

Let's See Some Builds

19 posts in this topic

Usually there are topics for this, but I didn't see one here. Figured I'd start one. Between the chisel and all the different building materials, it seems you can make some amazing builds with TFC that would not be possible with any other mods. So like the title says, let's see some bases.

 

Here is my base. I have a double bloomery and triple forge with room for a blast furnace setup. There is a room to store ingots next to the forges and the chest above them to store ores. The steps you see on the side lead to a good sized charcoal room. Since moving blocks is a pain once placed, I planned quite a bit to fit everything where it will stay. The bloomery structure is built, even though I haven't made them yet. I stumbled upon kaolinite and graphite early so my blast furnace structure is built, but is a long way from being wrapped in iron sheets to function. I also have found the animals, but haven't brought them home yet. I wanted to build a barn 1st. Just finished last night and figured I'd share.

Didn't want to fill the page with pics, so the rest of my base is in the spoiler.

That's awesome!

I just learned from you that you can combine different wood planks in the same block!

 

How did you make the diagonal above the window with two different materials?

I can't seem to do that.

Creepy, I think it's blocks of basalt placed outside of the window and chiseled. Then, he either chiseled planks of wood on the inside or used planks. The stone and wood aren't actually on the same block, the basalt is just chiseled down to a very thin panel over the wood which has been shaped separately.

The poster below hit the nail on the head

 Basalt chisled down to one layer thick on top of the wood. Once I had my window shape, I chiseled the wood behind it with a one block recess so the "window frame" is visible inside as well. You can't actually combine any blocks in a single block space. Even chiseled, the block takes up all the space. You can make it appear that way by doing layers.

Little tip. Use the chisel in slab mode to make the blocks thin and then switch to detail mode. Trying to chisel the whole block down in detail mode wastes chisels and time.

UltimateElements that build looks amazing too. I just build squares, but once I lock down the mechanics a little better I'll work on Detail. Plus I only play SSP for the moment.

This is my current world. I used SPC and MCEDIT to create granite mountain as my base; I've always be high up and with a great vantage point of a geographic interesting and aesthetic plateau mountain. Although the conversion was a headache at first, eventually discovered how to properly replace the vanilla block ID's; creating freshwater, granite, lava, hot water and grass covered dirt. Beyond that I have done everything legitimately...except for chicken =). I have not collected all plants or trees as yet. You'll notice that there isnt a forge area, that is because I am focusing on collecting stuff, in particular plants. I can't find rocksalt though....I'll have to do some more exploring. 

 

Oh the seed I used was : -1814942604166327585. Also the schematic of the mountain is available to anyone who is interested.

I've been looking at TFC for a while, watching YouTubers like Spud and Mronewolfe to see the mechanics of the mod and just what it entails. well I finally decided to pick it up and try it out, and the first thing I had to do was test to see if my building style would transfer to TFC, and how I would have to modify my style to best fit the mod. just wanted to share my build, which if it looks familiar, that is because I have a heavy influence from Jamziboy, as I do love his Norse houses he builds, they have a great feel to them nad are really great for survival play. http://imgur.com/a/AXP6g#0

Yeah, I've really enjoyed Spud's videos. I just started playing a few weeks ago. Love your different stations with barrels and such. How did you get maps? Is that a part of TFC or another mod?
