      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."

[Solved] Placing metal sheets on non firebrick blocks.

12 posts in this topic

I tested this in creative and it worked fine.  I placed different metal's sheets on different blocks and the different textures and colors looked amazing.  I tried to do this in survival and no go.  Is this deliberately disabled and if so, can it be reconfigured somehow on our server?

Thanks.

Are you sure the sheets you were using in survival were completely cooled, and had not been worked? There is no check in the code that specifically checks for fire brick blocks, and I just tested and was able to place them in survival just fine on a bunch of different blocks.

I switched from recipe mode to cheat mode in NEI and it works fine now.  Weird.   I'd never heard anyone mention these before.  They're really quite beautiful. 

Thanks for checking.  I really appreciate it.  :)

You can make hidden doors too. Place them and then break the block you placed them on. Then you can walk right through them.

Nice! 

Strange, in the year I've been reading this board, I'd not seen mention of using these sheets decoratively before.  I'm using Platinum sheets as a faux mirror behind my bar.  I'll post a pic when done. :)

I use them decoratively all the time.  You should play around with them more, there are so many uses for them such as table tops and water tubs.  They will hold water but you can still walk through them.  As you have said, platinum makes a really neat looking "mirror".

Very nice.  Really like the Cabinet.  This is the first time I've reached colored steel and had some extra metal to play with.  I only play survival and it's too valuable early game.  Looking forward to playing around with it some more, as now my main focus is just building stuff.  :)

Do you have to place the sheets on the block before you chisel it, or will it allow you to place it afterwords?

I did a little experimenting and you can easily place sheets on any type of chiseled block, as well as chisel the block while the sheet is attached.  I usually use lumber whenever possible to help keep lag down.  As with lumber the sheets can also occupy the same space as one another; just use a block beside the place where you want the sheet, place the sheet, and take up the block.

I started using sheets decoratively when I played in survival on another server and I had long ago reached colored steel.  Now I'm building a town for my own server and I'm seeing where the special TFC materials can take me creatively.  Screenshots of our builds are available on our server website and I always welcome new ideas, tips and tricks for building in TFC.

No idea what makes you think this. Lumber is just as laggy as chiseled blocks, if not worse because it supports multiple colors per block.

I should have specified detail chiseling.  From experience it creates a lot of lag on servers.  I use lots of lumber and other forms of chiseling and don't notice an appreciable amount of lag from them.

Thanks.  I'll check it out.  As to tips and tricks, I'm still in the apprentice builder stage. lol

Some of our players are doing great stuff though. I'm going to try and make a video once the village is a little farther along.
