      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."

Realistic Survival House Build

27 posts in this topic

I thought I would share the current house I am building in my survival world as I am trying to keep it as real as possible.

I have the basement done and will be posting a full home tour once it is entirely build and furnished the way I want :)

Let me know what you guys think as I would love to get some feedback and maybe some ideas for the layout upstairs :)

Design looks good but it's only 1/3 of a large house so far :D You must have a lot of resources.

Not really, just a lot of time and a efficient tree farm lol. I have burned through a metric butt ton of spruce already and I am not even close to done lol.

All of the wood in there so far is pure spruce planks... Very time consuming but aesthetically pleasing. I tried the support beams but they didn't seem to look as good to me.

What type of bushes are those? They look good, and you have found a lot of them.

Those are raspberries and blackberries. I usually spent a few in game weeks just following the coastline and weaving inland if I run out of that looking for seeds so I tend to gather a very wide variety of seeds, bushes and fruit tree saplings as well as plenty of each specimen. It's not the easiest way to play but I tend to manage eek through my first winter in a spot the really suits me. I have strict requirements for a homestead site including elevated water source, decent flat ground near by and a northern z coords as I do love seasons and the challenge.Oh btw the other light green ones are gooseberries and I found several patches of those in my pre Stone Age nomadic period.

It looks like your images are broken. Could you try uploading them to a 3rd party site and then linking them? I'd be happy to update your posts afterwards so the image properly displays.

I like the idea, I'm going to steal it. Question though, I may have missed it in a bug report, did they fix the whole planks being super laggy?

I haven't noticed any real lag to them except occasionally they refuse to render at startup.

I think the lag was caused mainly by lots of lumber being used - this would appear to be planks, chiselled ("slabbed") down to be the desired dimensions.

(thinking about it it may also have been detail mode chiselling causing lag)I do seem to remember a changelog (maybe B79.16) which said the lag had been fixed.

This is not plank blocks chisels down. This is done entirely by hand with lumber pieces. I will be posting another of these when I finally get to that point again on the new world I had to build over again because the world had become corrupted and I lost all of it.

Please do, I took some inspiration and tried to do similar, but I didn't like the result so much when it came time to do the roof, I'd like to see how you do it. You should totally make a guide for it!

The roof will definitely be tricky and I am not really sure how I will approach it. I am excited at the prospect of the shingling a bit more than the framing though. As for a guide, I can try but I won't promise how good it will turn out lol.

Yeah, that is the trouble I had. I might try again and instead of doing a traditional roof, I may just do a thatch roof, since you can creatively use plank trim to make it relatively spider proof. I would post screen shots of my build, but I ended up getting rid of that world for a lack of metals in the area I had settled down in. I thought I had a good source of copper, but it dried up really quickly!
