      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."

Clay multiple ingot mold

13 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.

Could we have multiple ingot clay molds? To speed up the process of making ingots.

They could be made of multiple molds "stuck" together with wet clay. They would only accept one kind of molent metal (so you couldn't fill a multiple mold half with copper half with gold, etc), and maybe break a bit more easily than the regular molds?

I think I do think about this topic a bit. ;)


 To further expand in this topic, I thought of a way to craft those clay molds. You will need four clay ingot molds joined together in the 3*3 crafting tab with use of four ingot molds and 1 clay in the middle.


 It could take up a whole block of space inside a pit kiln and it could support about 400 units. Keep in mind that you could also spend the same amount of time filling 400 units in a mold as it would have been with a single 100 unit mold.

Then what's the point of even having the mold in the first place? You'd literally be getting the exact same thing as what currently exists, at the expense of an extra piece of clay.

I think he's saying you'd fill the four-ingot mold in the time it would normally take to fill one.  I think that's the advantage. A bit too much I'd say.  For recipe I'd say four clay molds plus 5 pieces of clay, and it takes time to fill equivalent to two normal molds.  So you're filling twice as many molds for the time spent pouring.   That'd be my opinion.

Erm... think about that: what if someone wanted to have a faster way to fill in ingot molds? It's like mass production of metals when you need a filling task really quickly!

And maybe you could leave it to fill while you go fill another big mold, and so on.

The way I understood it, he was saying that it will take the same amount of time to fill the bigger molds as it would have to fill all of the individual molds. If that is the case, it is not a faster way, it's the exact same amount of time.

This says that the 400-unit 'mega-ingot' would take the same time as a single 100-unit 'normal' ingot to fill...

I'm not really in favour of this - despite finding ingot casting a bit time consuming.

To be sure, it's actually filling a mold for four ingots at the same time as it would have taken to fill an individual mold. It's not a mega-ingot mold. Look back at the first post on this topic.

Ok. Let me explain you. The way I think of it in my mind is filling all four molds at the same time. I have also thought of using a four-ingot-mold funnel to prepare this task that will only take 5 clay. I instead have also though of a dual-ingot mold that fills two ingots on a mold at the same time.

Those two dual-ingot molds can be welded by using a clay item in the middle and two dual-ingot molds at the sides.

Apologiies - I used the term 'mega-ingot' when I meant 'mega-mold', and 'normal ingot' where I meant 'normal mold'...

Why have molds that can cast multiple ingots, why not just add metal casts that can be reused. Pouring the metal from the crucible would save a lot of hassle.
