      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."

My Survival World

9 posts in this topic

Wanted to have this up much sooner but really wanted to have at least 1 complete building in survival to show and that took longer than I expected.  So started 79.10 early Nov and this is my progress so far. :)  (Due to the pic limit this will take up more than 1 post.)


First Night I hid out on this island decided it be cool to have an island beach house.
Posted Image

First Shelter It's so tiny, have a few large vessels (You can see my vessel with fresh water) and a firepit in there.
Posted Image

2nd Shelter At this point I've designed my beach house in creative using the woods available (Hickory/WhiteElm/Chestnut/Aspen/Sequoia) Main building is Aspen with Hickory Planks and Logs.
Posted Image

Sometime around now I've also designed a blacksmith in creative and I really want to get that going.  I also had the brilliant idea to use my SSP seed and start a new creative world so I can work out a location for barn & pastures for the animals.
Blacksmith Outline
Posted Image

 

Shoreline  I'm standing on the wall of the beach house looking back over the land.  You can see the outline for the blacksmith and the start of barn.

Posted Image

 

At this point I'm into my 2nd game year and I really want new trees especially for the blacksmith as I'd love to use Douglas Fir & Birch.  So lots of exploring is had and...

PIGSPLOSION!

Posted Image

 

I find Pine/Ash/Birch/White Cedar and decide I can use the pine in place of the Douglas so back to construction.

Blacksmith You know what would be great for more storage, a basement.  Didn't think of that in my creative world design.

Posted Image

 

Also start on a red and white barn, you can see the island/beach house in the background at this point I've completely stop construction on it.

Barn

Posted Image

 

A lot of in game time has passed we're in the 3rd year I've gone exploring again and...

DOUGLAS FIR! (That pig is so dead, got to close to the wild wolves.)

Posted Image

 

Somewhere I also decided I want to build the beach house out of White Elm and Willow so start on a design in creative.  Which means I need to remove the Aspen house I had been working on but I'll need somewhere to move. Time to stop slacking and get that blacksmith done.

Blacksmith Construction

 

Basement Floor is made from shale and the walls are dolomite, staircase hickory.  Building will be limestone.

Posted Image

 

Ground Floor The Aspen is taking from the beach house and you can see where the forge will be just as soon as I make a charcoal pit.

Posted Image

 

2nd Floor  Hey, the forge works now!  Bushes are blueberry, wish I had more than 5.  Yes those are log piles in the windows but glass is a big commitment.  I've moved into the ground floor and completely tore down the Aspen beach house.

Posted Image

 

Start Roof  Beginning of the roof

Roof Progress

Roof Done

Posted Image

 

Blacksmith Side  Time I actually got to work on the smithing side of the building. Future bloomery

Posted Image

 

More roofing!

Posted Image

 

Naked Building!  The bare bones of the building, and yes I finally committed to glass  :P  it's light gray if you are wondering.

Posted Image

 

Now with details  Makes a world of difference.

Posted Image

Yes that's a stone anvil, no I don't have a copper one but I'll probably jump to iron now that the building is done.

This is mostly a mish-mash of random pics from my world.  (And a few from the creative since I can't actually "complete" the blacksmith in survival yet)

Bismuth Mine I seriously lucked out, this is normal (right side 25 units) and rich (left side 35 units).

Posted Image

 

Iron and Zinc Mine  The zinc is back by the far pumpkin in the quartzite, behind me is a scary scary ravine.  Where the chestnut and pumpkin are is where I dug down too.

Posted Image

 

Farm!  I apparently don't have a pic of my copper mine but a lovely night time shot of my farm taken from the roof of the blacksmith.

That's actually brilliant man 

I especially love the stonework! In the basement, cobble mixed in is great :) But really, you must have spent an eon constructing that thing. 

Kudos to you  ;)

Looks awesome on the outside! I want to see the inside though, especially the basement now you have a roof!

 

In TFC I seem to rarely build a house, just a workshop. The house always seems, secondary. This has inspired me to build an actual house!

Thank you Anquieta.   :)  The basement turned out better than expected, using it as a work area with hide processing and a loom station as well as more storage.  The time wasn't to bad since I had a lot of fun planning and building.  Already have a (*rough) design for my next house as well as 2 smaller projects planned.

 

Thanks so much Udary, I'm glad to hear I've inspired. :D  You should totally show off screenshots too!  (This forum needs more action. lol )

 

I had actually planned to post interior screenshots as well but 2 things; One I already had to post 3 times and two I've not been able to find reeds. :(  Which means no books which really hurts interior decorating.

 

Edit Dec 20th: I found reeds today. B)

Great stuff, but for some reason I really like that chiseled path leading out of the blacsmith. Never seen that before it looks awesome mind if I borrow it? :)

I'm just afraid it's gonna be too taxing having that many chiseled blocks around (I have a lot of these little paths and roads in my town) + I already have tons of chiseled blocks.

Of course, I myself think I first saw that kinda of stone path in one of Spud Gunn's let plays.  Yeah it is a balancing act with the stone work, it helps that the building uses only slabs or stairs no detailed blocks at all.  Though the next big house uses tons of lumber which I think will be a problem and the small project makes use of a few detailed blocks but it's not all that close to these buildings so I don't think it'll be a problem.

Whelp, WoW is a trap. (Also I got a job! Huzzah!) So haven't been in the world in a while.  What I found was that 1 of my small projects wasn't complete the 2nd not even started and I hadn't even completed my iron anvil.  With all the updates I'm behind not to mention a ton of awesome addons that are new thinking I'll just start over.  Still really want to complete the buildings so I may yet do that in a future world but in the meantime here are a handful of screen shots of what I got done in SSP and 1 that I had planned out in creative.(White Elm needs more love :)  )

 

Miner Shack Small Project 1

Missing the stone I wanted for this one (chimney) and the dirt I used in the creative picture I don't have in SSP.  Hardest part was placement since It's above my copper mine which I had already started so placed the wall to line up (hopefully) with where I wanted the access shaft to be.

Big Project aka why you hate white elm?

Still planning to build this one, guess this can be a teaser

Rough Design from Creative

Only a handful of pics and I know someone wanted to see some interior pics of the blacksmith I might hop into the creative world and put together a "What I would have done". 

 

So I guess this is it time to update and begin anew. (Didn't even finish the barn but man was I happy when I found those reeds.)
