      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."

I'll post here when I've updated MCMC from now on.

Edit: I've made a pinned thread for that now.

With this first post, I've pushed a new version with some of the requested lighting changes. Shadow casting is off by default now and the material applied to the model in the editor now has 0 smoothness which should help with some of the lighting reflection that was occurring.

So uh, it says I don't have permission to access that MCMC download page.  Maybe another thing to add to contributor profile?

Would this be a good place to request new features for MCMC or should that go through PM?

I have a couple issues that could use improvement.

Using right click to pan, seems like sometimes it doesn't do anything.  It seems that I have to be one the animal or the turf block, or something else, for it to work well or sometimes at all.  I'd really like it if the pan was not dependent on being over objects.

Second, when I select a new box, I'd like for the program to NOT re-center the screen.   Sometimes I like the view I'm in.  Could we get a 'center on box' button or something, and not have the window re-center when selecting a new box?

Of course if you guys prefer it the way it is, say so.  these are just my opinions.

Oh, and also, the texture box.  I think it'd be better if the zoom/render/load buttons were postioned on any other side *except* the left side.  When I have the texture window fully zoomed at 4x, it's the same width as the left menu column - I keep it below all the other stuff, in that empty grey area.  But I have to hang it into the model window because the buttons are on the left side.  If the buttons were on the right, they'd cover less model window.  Or if they were above or below the texture window, they'd wouldn't have to hang over at all.

I few changes I would like on my side:

When I first downloaded the program it gave me an option of what size window I wanted for the program. I have not had this box pop up since. Is there some way to change this setting so that I can make MCMC run at a different resolution?

I would like an option that could deselect all the boxes so that you could view the entire model without having one of the boxes tinged red as the program is currently selecting that. Maybe clicking this option would switch to an isometric view of the whole model?

I would like the dark grey areas of the screen to be dead-zones when clicking on the model. Currently, you can select parts through the dark grey area. This grows annoying when trying to select a number to change. See the photo below. If I were to click the dark grey box to change the offset along the z axis, then it would select the box that the red arrow points to.

Loving the 1.06 changes.  However, with regards to the TEX window.  With the buttons below, when I pop up the zoom menu and it's near the bottom so the window pops up instead of down, it seems that the shape maps in the map window actually override the popup menu, or maybe the menu is translucent or something, but it makes it hard to read.  I think a hierarchy needs to be changed there or mabe the background and/or text of the popup changed to read better against the map field?

Two things I would change is making the the texture alignment window a lot bigger with more than x4 zoom. Also when clicking new it'd be nice to have it either prompt to save or launch another instance of the program. Currently if you misclicked or didn't realize that behavior you could lose hours of work.
