      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."

modpack WIP [TFC-0.79.29] TerraFirmaProgressivePack

266 posts in this topic

I think we do not need to change the recipes for this modification. we need to prepare "materials" for this modification. this will be the next step in the evolution of this assembly

So far this modpack is amazing! I was hoping to ask you if there is any chance of adding in more...Advanced weaponry for later ages? Like flans WW2 weapons and such, Its more for when me and my friends get into a fight we rather use age appropriate weapons, such as when im in the WW1 era where i have electricty and sophisticated machines. Bolt actions and machineguns began to be more prominate. I understand if were trying not to make this a PVP oriented modpack but i just think it would be cool if weapons advanced with your own machines. As always, Good job on your pack!

I had an idea while casting a bunch of iron ingots all at once, and it was taking forever doing them one at a time. A useful thing to add in whichever mod you made and put into the pack. There should be a couple items that are multi ingot molds, like 2, 4, and 8 versions would be really useful. Udary and TerraMisc add molds for their own items so it should be possible, The only problem might be when it puts out multiple ingots instead of one the heat would have problems carrying over, though it should be fine to just make it like the tool part molds, where it ignores temperature once full, so you don't have to worry about that part. Anyways, this would be super useful once you start to get to a more industrial level and need to refine large amounts of metal at once

As LightningShock mentioned, Reikka's mods policy forbid custom recipes, thus I rejected these mod at the very beginning of my work. BTW, currently there is something much more better than "usefulTNT', it is explosive material from IHL mod, it create static piles of items inside, instead of items.

If talking bout PVP - this mod support PVP, for example you have following tiers of ranged weapons: bow, long bow, crossbow, pistol, musket, multi-shot riffle, flamethrower, railgun, not counting rocket launcher and mining laser - they deal small damage to living entity but can be used to break blocks. I'm not going to add Flans mod - I tried once, too much crashes and bugs.

Multiple ingots can be done using Foundry - there are two kind of ingot molds, TFC one would give one hot (nearly melting point) ingot which must to be removed from slot, Foundry mold would give many cold ingots into output slot at once.

 

Version 1.53 was downloaded, I added archbar truck item, thus some 8-whelled traincraft vans can be assembled now, liquid iron can be melted in muffle furnace to allow sand casted wheels, Russian and Japan steam locomotives are also craftable.

I was playing around with the traincraft trains in creative a bit to decide which one I want to craft in my survival game, but I've found them really slow. The railcraft locomotive is much faster. I tried to tweak the configs to bump their max speed, but havent found them. Is there any way to increase the max speed of the trains? I think they play a big role in the exploration-transportation endgame(to move large amounts of barrels and wood around) and faster trains would be really useful.

I'm also considering writing a bigger post about my adventures in my survival map with pictures. Should I make a seperate post or should I post it here?

In version 1.53 I added faster and more powerful engines, for example Japan C62 class. I will add another ones in next release.

The issue with Railcraft locomotives is, that they are too fast, it can cause some problems on servers due to chunk loading latency. Therefore I disabled HS rails.

It is interesting to read someone else adventures, "User creations" forum is a best place for it, my single player blog is also here (temporarily abandoned due to failure of video card, spare one is too slow).

Thank you! Could you, if possible, write in detail what has changed in the mod's folder. I update the config and the script folder without fail.

There really are logs of all the changes, but I think not everyone can understand what has changed. I do not insist, but the record of the form: replace the file in the mod's folder by ... looks more understandable for most users. In any case, the right of the last word remains for the author of this assembly)

I don't think TooMuchTime is working on my save anymore, the length of my days are about 10 minutes which is roughly the same as my nights, does this sound right? Does TFC take into account the shorter winter days?

 

Also, just wanted to mention that the ghasts spawning in deep ocean in storms has led to some very intense and immersive moments in my playtime such as running down the beach in darkness with explosions trailing me.

It makes sense to be similar during autumn and spring, you should see the effect mid-winter and summer. I could swear I noticed it, but either I am under Mandela effect or I didn't remember clearly.

So it should be similar to vanilla time in spring and autumn?

server {
    # For every X number of ticks provided here, when there are no players online the server will only progress by 1 tick. Time advances 100 times slower than normal. Setting this to 0 will turn this feature off. [range: 0 ~ 2147483647, default: 100]
    I:simSpeedNoPlayers=0
}

The value of the parameter is 0 - is it normal?
If I change to 100, the time back will not run, as in earlier assemblies?

If you change it to 100, it will behave like "regular" TFC server. The time DOES run, but very slowly when nobody is on the server.

0 is not the default, the author of this modpack changed this setting.

I should also suggest a nice client side mod. It is called Sound Filters and it's adding cools effects to sound like muffling(when behind walls) and reverb(in caves).

There was issue with this parameter, you reported time rollback:

I fixed some mods causing this error, however I recommend to set this parameter to 0, because default year length for this modpack is 360 days.

Without freezing time, it gives exact 5 real days for each ingame year. I noticed, that some TFC servers use similar settings, because it give better predictability: if you see late winter, you are sure that tomorrow will be spring, no matter is somebody will be logged or not.

Oh, and I forgot to mention: I played your modpack while having Cooking with TFC mod installed as well, and I can say it is nice and bug free, you should check it out. The only issue is that is adding some new trees and melons but the lack of them isn't blocking progress and you easily find them once you explore further.

EDIT: I also added Jackofix which is a mod that makes jack-o-lanters burn up(as I've thought having them burning indefinitely is OP).
