      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."

Seed Request: Scenic Sequoia forest. 79.18+

11 posts in this topic

Howdy! I'm looking for a simple seed with a sequoia forest. I would like it if there was a nice variety of trees between the sequoias, but not required. A lake in the sequoia forest would be nice as well. Some ores in the area is always wanted ( Copper, Bismuth, Sphalerite, Garnierite, graphite etc.) rock preferably: Basalt, dolomite, andesite or gabbro. Though I would like rock salt nearby, but not required. I would like the area to be around the Z coordinate -12000 to -16000, I HATE the south, and refuse to go to the Equator. TFC version: 79.18+. If you have a seed that meets at least a few of the requirements, please tell me :D. (I've searched for a long time, and have not found a good enough forest.)

The seed I'm currently using may interest you: -8335361358615055950.

 

I spawned at about Z -9800, and there is a small sequoia forest starting at about X -400, Z -10150 by a large fresh water lake. A little further north, the sequoia forest gets quite a bit bigger, with scattered aspen, white oak, and pine, and bounded on the west by mountains and ocean. There's a really scenic spot at about X -600, Z -10600 with sequoia trees perched around mountain peaks that overlook the ocean. At X -343, Y -10700 there is a little freshwater pond, and a bit further east the sequoia forest turns into a pine/elm forest which is broken by several freshwater lakes. To the north, at about Z -10900, the sequoia forest gives way to rolling hills and plains with scattered lakes, each surrounded by sequoia trees.

 

The prevailing stone is granite. There are lots of ores, although I haven't done much mining or exploring near the sequoia forest. I have found very large deposits of copper, gold, and silver right near the spawn point, so I have had black bronze nearly from the beginning. There is hematite scattered in various places, but I'm not sure how large the deposits are as I haven't mined any yet. There is bismuth at X 150, Y -10900. There is a large deposit of graphite at X -300, Y -8630. Even further sound I have seen sphalerite. I have not found rock salt yet.

Just curious, what's so terrible about the south?

Some people don't like getting close to the equator because food spoils quicker.  Also, the acacia forests are nearly impenetrable.

I just love the north, to me the south is ugly, i dont like the jungles at all. The challenge of living up north makes the game more fun, and i love the winter and snow. To me, the south is useless and barren, except for chickens. The sequoia forests are my favorite biomes, which is the reason for my name. :D

Great seed.  I spent many happy days in Sequoia National Forest when I was young.  Thank you.

I've been playing on this for about a week and it's really great.  Lots of metal ores, plants, pigs and sheep are nearby, chickens to the South and cows to the far South.  Marble nearby also, with exposed Lapis and Cinnabar. :)

 

This would make a great server map.

Cool, I'm glad you liked the seed. I've been enjoying it for several months now. It was my first seed and definitely the best I've played so far. Beginner's luck, I guess.

 

I've seen the chickens but have yet to find cows. Where did you see them exactly?

My friend found them.  I think he was 5000 =/- South?  I'll ask him when I get a chance.  I remember thinking it was too far to bring an animal, so I didn't bother.
