      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."

Naming Animals

7 posts in this topic

I have read the wiki and forums and know that it is possible to name animals after their hearts get full and turn "gold." However, I cannot seem to get any of my animals to this point. Some animals get "full" enough for me to ride/milk/shear, but won't fill more than that, even with daily feeding. At least they retain this level of fullness if I miss some days of feeding.

 

Then I have some "new" sheep who I have been faithfully feeding each TFC morning, and just when their heart gets a tiny bit of red so I can shear them, the next morning it is empty again. I am sneak-feeding each day. Is there something I am missing? Does shearing sheep reduce their hearts?

 

Also, for horses, do you need to ride instead of feed daily to increase heart to "gold"? 

 

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. :)

  • Familiarity will decrease slightly each day if it hasn’t reached a certain level and you haven’t interacted with the animal
  • Familiarity has a set cap after which it can no longer be increased in adult animals. Baby animals can always increase their familiarity, and do so much faster than adults.
  • Baby animals retain 50% of their mother’s familiarity when born, unless she is close to maximum familiarity, in which case they will retain 90% of it

If your animals are adults, you'll never be able to get them to gold. You have to get them to gold while they are still babies. That's what the "cap" in the change log is talking about.

Are you sneak-feeding and shearing your sheep? You need to feed it every day even if you are shearing it.

 

Horses will take multiple generations to get to gold, since you cannot get adults to gold, but you also cannot ride a baby. Basically, get an adult to the cap, then breed it and as soon as the baby is born feed it to get the familiarity as high as possible before it reaches adult status. You may not be able to get it to full familiarity by that point, so you'll need to breed it with another high familiarity animal to get another baby that will have a higher starting familiarity, so you won't have to feed it as much to reach gold.

Thank you - that does help me understand the "cap" situation very clearly now. :)  However, I still have a problem with my sheep having a bit of their heart filled one day, then the next TFC morning it is empty again. This happens regardless of whether I've sheared it or not.  It seems to be the rams that tend to do this. I am playing on a server, as well, but I have been the only one on for hours.

 

Also, I did feed my baby cow to the point where it has a gold heart, but I did not get prompted to name it. Do I need to wait for it to grow to adulthood to name it? What happens if I am not on the server and when it reaches adulthood?

 

Thanks again for you help!

What do you mean by "prompted to name it"? You can't name it until you reach a certain level of familiarity, but you still need to craft a name tag and choose a name, you just can't use that tag on an animal if the familiarity is too low. It doesn't automatically ask you to name it.

 

As for the sheep, are you feeding them every day? Until the heard has a white border, the familiarity can decrease if you miss a day. For instance, feed it on day one, on day two there's a bit of red on the heart. If you don't feed it on day two, the red will be gone again on day three.

Ok, so I did not know you had to craft a name tag. There is no mention of it on the wiki and the changelog doesn't say how to craft or use one.  I just assumed it was like MoCreatures where you are prompted to name animals. :)

 

So, let me get this straight. First, feed an adult female to get it to the "cap." Breed the female and feed the baby until it has a gold heart. Craft a nametag somehow and then name the gold heart animal?

 

Sorry to be a bother, I do try to read the wiki and changelog first. :) Am I missing where it gives the recipe for a nametag? 

 

Thanks again!

Thank you! Thought I searched for "nametag" and "name tag" must obviously did not. :)
