      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."

[TFC 0.79.24+] Animal Crate

13 posts in this topic

I whipped together a quick little addon that I figured I would share.

 

On my server we play a lot with the Ships mod, and we've found it very difficult to transport animals. If you try to carry them loose on the ship, a lag spike can knock them off or even get them stuck in a wall. So I made animal crates.

 

HOW TO MAKE

Posted Image

Any planks will do

 

HOW THEY WORK

  • Right click an animal with a crate to store them in the crate (This makes the crate very heavy, you'll have to put it on your back)
  • Place it on the ground like a normal block, and shift-rightclick it to let the animal out. This destroys the crate.
  • If you want to pick up the crate, simply use an axe to break it. If there is an animal inside, it'll stay in there.
  • The crate when in your inventory will say what is inside
  • When placed in the world or right clicked the animal will make a noise to tell you what's inside.  
  • Now you can load your animals up on your ship and sail away! Or it gives you a quick and easy way to get a single animal across harsh terrain on your back (Although I already used the Udary mod for this purpose, never hurts to have options)

 

FUTURE PLANS

This is just a simple mod I whipped up to fill a need, but I have a few ideas I'll likely implement in the future

  • Metal Cages - Always needs to be carried on your back, even when empty, but doesn't break when opened
  • Visual cues - Labels and potentially glimpses of the animal inside the crate, so you don't have to pick it up or hit it to know what's inside. 
  • Multiple Small Animals - Chickens and bats don't weigh much or take up much space, may make it possible to carry multiple in a single crate. 

Download

 

(WARNING: Don't release the animal when the crate is beside other blocks, the animal may suffocate)

 

This code is released under the MIT OSS License. If you want to use it in a modpack go ahead.

Yeah it may be surprising that Nobody's Pack isn't "Nobody's" literally ;)

Perfect for making a TerraFirmaCraft coup. ( Not supposed to be a political coup, but a chicken holding place. )
