      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."

Maybe "Time to cast! (No not that way)"

I was mostly poking fun at the fact that the iron capped wooden wand is a joke in vanilla, but in TFC iron is nothing to scoff at.

Eh once i get into the iron age it is decently easy to get, well if you play with increased ore amounts :]

But still, 24 iron bearing ores in a bloomery yields 6 ingots, have a good iron mines or two and you have a good amount of iron. Also iron spawns in 12 out of 21 rock types, 1 in igneous extrusive and the other two spawning in all sedimentary.

Well, I have to say its heartening to see there is still interest. I've got a new job and a new-(ish) computer, and I'll be working on this again now that I'm up and running.

Its been a while since I've had the opportunity to look at the code, so it'll be slow going for a bit, but I'm determined to finish this.

First things first... Finalizing the Ore Spawn algorithm and adding magic biomes.

Really looking forward to seeing this mod! And adding new biomes sounds amazing! I really hope you can pull it off :D

 

GL with the new job too!

Oh sweet. I'll have to poke you about that. I was getting horrid lag when new chunks were generated.

Well, TFC is king of generation lag, adding even a little extra work can have noticeable effects. Right now I'm just overwriting the class that spawns loose rocks to allow it to see magic ores as well as normal ones, rather than adding a whole new loop for "core sampling". Its a bit heavy handed, but I've tired of trying to inject my code everywhere, its very hard to debug. Plus I don't think they're keen on adding more api changes, RIP TFC1.

Yeah that was conclusion I came to as well. I tried to be tricky and it obviously generated, then deleted all TFC debris and then generated mine.

If it's server functional, i'll see what I can do once it's done.

Tainted biomes are going to be amazing! :D Great job so far!

tinkering with the noise functions to spread the magical biomes around can lead to some interesting maps. But even poor results mean something is working.

Ok, Got the biome distribution set up pretty much the way I want it. Pictured is a sample layout of magic biomes on an average map (Each pixel representing a chunk)
