      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."

Berry Overhaul

3 posts in this topic

Have you read, understood, and followed all of the rules listed in large text at the top of the suggestions forum?(Yes/No): Yes
Answering "no" to the above question will result in your post being deleted.

Instead of using irl berries such as blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries, TFC 2 should have randomly created berries specific to the world type. For instance, every bush is unique to the world. The textures of the berries would be generated similarly to the creation of dyed leather armor, by randomly selecting a color and overlaying it on a random preselected texture for berries. When you find a Berry, you can name it


Berries will also fall into one of three groups: edible, poisonous, and medicinal. You can find out which berries are edible or not by observing wildlife eat berries, or eat the berries yourself. In world, 40% of berries will be poisonous, 50% will be edible, and 10% will be medicinal.


If you eat a poisonous berry, depending on the toxicity, you will get effects like temp slowness from barely poisonous berries to extreme poison and death from extremely poisonous berries. Poisonous berries can be ground up and mixed with water to make poison, whose toxicity will depend on the berries that were used to make it. You can dip arrows and javelins into said poison to make lethal weapons that can kill enemies. When harvested, the amount of berries produced will be about the same as 1/2 the harvest of edible berries.


If you find an edible or medicinal berry, and eat it, a tool tip under the berry will display "edible". Edible berries will usually have a bigger harvest than medicinal berries or poisonous berries, but wont have any special properties other than being edible.


Medicinal berries can be discovered by eating berries, and if your health goes up a bit after eating the berry, than its a medicinal berry. If you discover a berry to be medicinal, a tooltip will say "medicinal" under the name of an item. These berries will heal a bit of health on their own depending on how strong they are, but when ground up and mixed with water they will create medicine which can be used to have a temp increase in regen (for like 24 hours).Medicinal berries are edible as with edible berries, but don't produce as much when harvested.


Also, in SMP, you can share your knowledge about berries with other people by right clicking them and there will be a pop up box asking the player if he wants to share the information. In case of pvp servers, sharing of knowledge about berries could be disabled to not annoy people while killing other people. 



Hope you enjoy these ideas! :)

While the idea of poisonous, edible, and medicinal berries is really interesting, I really don't see the point of changing the current creation system from using real berries to using artificially generated ones. It really doesn't add anything to gameplay other than forcing you to eat the berry at least once. Generally speaking, the hardest thing about acquiring berries is finding them in the first place. At that point it really doesn't matter if everyone knows the berry type you just found is poisonous because you'll likely take all the bushes with you and your enemies won't be able to find those berries there.


By using the current system of existing berries, there is more consistency and therefore easier communication across worlds. If you get to name your own berries, a player on another world is going to have absolutely no idea what you are talking about when you talk about one of the berries you found and named.

In the Darkness Suvival mode found on ATLauncher, there is something interesting.

You can make/loot 10 potions with unknown effect before drink them one time. (existing only 10 items, they are no random generation, they are predeterminated item).

Before drink them, their name is Unknown Potion. with no description and get the same icon. But after drank they have new description with bad/good effect on you (like regeneration, poison, sick, etc.) and a name


That be cool if something like this applied to berry. You don't know if you can eat or no them, so you harvest them and try at home. Same thing could be applied for mushroom.

I like to the idea of poisonous/medicinal berry. But i think they are the same thing.

In fact most of medicinal plants are poisonous, but in little quantity could heal you.


I'm sorry i can't explain myself deeply in english =/
