      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."

Melting Tool Heads

11 posts in this topic

I suggest the possibility to melt the tool heads into the ceramic vessel and in the crucible. The more broken the tool head the lower metal you get.

This has been suggested in a variety of contexts already. You likely couldn't find due to not knowing English word and fact they are a bit buried. Tools are cheap resource wise, there is really no need to have ability to melt down used tool heads.

If world has no many ores this suggestion can help you. Heads of tools cannot to be hot. This is no realistic.

Go read. http://terrafirmacraft.com/index.html/_/articles/believable-r64 Gameplay and balance are more important than realism. This is a game. If TFC were realistic 95% of players would be in death loop within a couple of hours.

"My world has few resources." Is such a lousy excuse. The world is procedurally generated. There may be areas of low resources and maybe your spawn is like that. So travel explore. It isn't like a seed has a rich, poor or dry tag that effects the entire world. If you are too lazy to travel then try a new seed. If you like a challenge or like your spawn then suck it up.

I suggest only the recipe (for example: crucible input: copper pickaxe = 70 copper units). I do not think that is a recipe for "players would be in death loop within a couple of hours."

It was a general comment to your vast number of suggestions invoking realism as reason to do so. There is no need to be able to do this. Investing 1 ingot in a tool for the number of uses you get is reasonable. Allowing you to reclaim any amount back is unbalanced in my opinion.

I know that Bioxx said that he seeks to add terrafirmacraft believability, not realism. But some little things make the game exciting. But some lower fps. I suggest what I wanted to see in mod.

Only things like sheets and ingot can be smelted as I believe if you allowed finished products to be smelted without loss you could quickly power-level your skills making them pointless. Making sheets either doesn't affect skills or it's general smithing, I can't remember. I hoped to be able to smelt tools and weapons exactly to do this.

You can recycle an old anvil to recover a lot of metal. That's enough.

This would be a little cheaty. You can make a tool head melt it than do it again making your skill higher so cheaty

Well, you can powerlevel armor smithing in the current b79 version. But it only works on the unfinished pieces ofcourse, which tool heads are not.
