      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."

Hello I'm new to the forum.

4 posts in this topic

Hi! i;m new, i discovered terrafirmacarft about a week ago, and now have a decent seed (plenty of wood, andesite top layer, clay, lots of fruit trees and some animals) and have played that world about two rl days, We're at the edge of the first winter and I have a breeding pair of cows, 4 pigs, a nice little farmhouse next to a lake made of wood, logs and thatch (found a way to use planks to spiderproof my thatch) a small farming area, and ive even located some sheep. I ave one dog, and it keeps attacking my cattle, so i keep it leashed indoors (can you make them sit/stay in another way? I only have one rope and need to for the sheep) I've yet to make a bed or any armor, and I cannot find any flux stone so far (I've searched quite a way now.)Really this post is just to say hello on these forums (an invaluable resource i;ve already fond, next to the wiki)My main questions so far are : how terrified must I be of winter? is there any way to find salt and or flux reliably or is it just dumb luck? I've not even found a topstone change yet, even when tree types change and biomes do change. oh and how did world generation change? because I hear people on the forum say they know how far they are from the equator, how do you know?


So hello all, sorry if I'm breaking rules... new and such.

Only fully familiarized dogs will sit without ropes. Which you can only get to with babies. The partly tamed wolves won't kill animals if they aren't hungry though. But yeah they are a danger. I kinda wish that they would die of old age, as I felt horrible killing one of my wild wolves (other one suffocated in jack-o-lantern.

The winter in SSP isn't too bad if you have a moderate amount of food. I tend to focus on mining and metallurgy progression during first winter.

The equator is z=0. The permanently frozen area is +/- 30000. The sweet spot people tend to settle in is about -8000 to -10000. Seasons are opposite on either side of equator.

Finding rock types is just luck and persistence. Took me a while to find rock salt although turns out salting stuff made my food far to salty for my character.

Best of Luck

Greetings!  Welcome to the board. :)


I think Bunsan pretty much covered your questions.  For me winter has never really posed a problem but I do so much exploring that first year, so in SSP I end up with so much food.  Currently living at z-7800 so the temperature does fall below 0 but not for long, downside the summers are pretty hot so food decay is much faster.

This.  I think when I was exploring North looking for Douglas Fir it was easily 1200-1500 blocks before I saw a top layer rock change, but East I hit a new rock in 200 or less.

Aye I lived through winter (febuary now) by slaughtering a wildpig... my own pigs had oodles of piglets (3 pregnant pigs all at huge litters... too many to house) so I have no idea if I can even eat all that meat when they become ready for slaughter... I expanded the farm a bit building sheds for my animals, I now have 3 sheep and a bed, 3 fields and a horse. Now to grow enough grain to familliarize them all well.Also I just settled at my spawn (literally the same pond i spawned next to) and it;s at z -10600... so just in the sweetspot? it's a rather nice spawn , I may write down the seed for others. I haven;t dared cross any oceans yet, but am exploring around, I'm right on top of plenty of iron, copper and bismouth and even found some casserite nearby. I found a bit of platinum while panning and there's gold in the hills too. and there's a few hotsprings nearby  All in all not bad, except no flux so far.Flux will be my next mission! and then a blacksmith! Ah I love this mod!
