      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."

[Request] Better Storage

10 posts in this topic

Would anyone consider creating a storage solutions addon for TFC akin to BetterStorage?  We've gotten quite a few things to help out with storage in the base mod but it'd be nice to see things like vertical chests/lockers and some kind of stack based storage to add some variety.

For vertical storage, barrels can be stacked on top of each other. And chests made of different wood can be placed next to each other.

What I'm going for is more the aesthetics of the lockers from Better Storage rather than just the convenience of putting things next to each other.  It's a bit jarring going from the pretty looking lockers of Better Storage to vanilla chests.

We've modified BetterStorage to work well with TechNodefirmacraft pack. I can look to see if we can make it stand alone and share it with community. We are in middle of some big projects for pack so not sure timeline.

Might take a bit longer than I hoped. It is a bit tied into our custom TFC build, but I will split the function off. In mean time you could always use our pack :P

Well I've made some progress. I need to texture the lockers and I can likely get a beta up for people to test. Currently the chests do tick, so food will decay in them and ingots cool. The recipe for keys and locks is not ore dictionaried yet, so they are not currently craftable.  They also don't respect item size, so anything can go in them atm. Not sure if that is fine or weather to make them size restricted like TFC chests.

Looks sick, can't wait to have it.  Keys aren't really a priority for TFC, at least in my opinion.  Size restriction should be lifted if they're as expensive as in the vanilla version.

I've got the keys working. The reason I want to add the size restrictions is that the crate is quite cheap and without the restrictions would be quite unbalanced.
