      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."

Questions and Suggestions for TFC2

14 posts in this topic

I'm happy to hear TFC2 is coming, I hope it comes to 1.10 or overhauls completely. 

 

The most exciting thing about tfc1 was starting fresh. It was so great to do things from zero. Also recently I watched a chanel on youtube called Primite Technology, which they start from zero in the world and builds its way to progression without the outside help. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAL3JXZSzSm8AlZyD3nQdBA

And this made me excited for TFC more, but TFC1 had its flaws; not being really independant to minecraft. The idea of still a mob spawn in the night just screws this mod. I feel like if something is going to kill you, it gotta be the cold or starvation. Or bears? Maybe snakes. I feel like TFC should remove normal mob spawns and instead have real life threats like bears, snakes, lions etc. I noted "cold" but having to worry about temperature in minecraft has been a hassle with mods (ex. enviromine), also pretty much limits the player so I dislike that. Instead night should have a different effect that is equivalent to vanilla nights. Maybe some wild animals become extra hostile and stuff. 

But the final decision is up to devs, and hope TFC2 turns out to be fresh and better in performance.

Hardcore Darkness. That's all for this. It should be implemented in the game.

 

And for Hostile animals and snakes: :D (and diseases?)

Not really. Hardcore darkness is another mod. 

I know, but it will make the night dangerous for the only purpose it is in real life. Anyway the mod Hardcore Darkness can be inproved.  The total darkness should appear only in caves and/or when the moon is covered or new.

Hardcore Darkness has those exact options in the config, so I don't think it is necessary for TFC2 to reinvent the wheel.

Peaceful Nights Dangerous Caves is the mod that removes all mob spawning from the surface for TFC1, but I thought I read somewhere that non-animal vanilla mobs are being removed completely from TFC2.

Yeah, I realized that 1 week ago.

Wow this means that surface enemies could be enviroment and predators... and monsters will be foud later in game in dungeons... this remembers me the first Tomb Rider.

One thing I'd for sure love to see is more of a "Tech Tree" and more weapons to accompany them. As an idea possibly the ability to craft a musket or a poll arm things like that. Also, I am a very strong advocate for diseases in TFC2. Also, possibly villages or roaming tribes I have been working on code for that for quite some time and I got a small village to generate

Would be nice if animals including dangerous ones reproduce in the wild and move around more off-screen. Then you couldn't just ignore the bear. Offspring ventures out on its own when it reaches adulthood, something like that. Dangerous if you let a den live near you.

 

I'd really like to see a few compatibility mods, to the point of thinking about doing a semi-simple one myself, particularly Chisels And Bits since it's basically the same as the old TFC chisel with a few extra options and more freedom. Just making the chisels themselves and blueprints craftable would put things back where they were. But, how that's done would depend on what metalworking is like in TFC2, how easy or difficult it ends up being to work with that system as far as external mods go, and what MC version TFC2 will be released in. Or...could just make the original CAB chisels craftable in a bench with metal bars/gems, but that feels like a waste of the metalworking system.

...on that note, any word on whether TFC2 initial release will still be for 1.8 or if it'll jump up to more recent MC versions? I mainly ask because 1.8 was a seemingly difficult version for the modding community. A lot of mods, even popular ones, left their 1.8 iterations in a pretty unfinished state, or skipped the version entirely, so...TFC2 in later versions would be quite welcome, given some of the amazing things the modding community as a whole has been doing lately. Especially with the Thaumcraft dev looking like he's making great progress, and the new version looking even better than the last. It'd be nice to be able to play TFC2 alongside new/updated things, and the offhand slot.

As far as version, it seems like the devs have been tracking with vanilla more or less.  It was brought up to 1.10.2 in July according to github.  I haven't seen any record of a 1.11 update since then though.

Are we going to see a Village mechanic included something along the lines of millinare

In the past Bioxx has said he's open to the notion of npcs, and it seems reasonable to assume that villages and other set pieces could be a thing as well.   Just fyi.  As for whether or not they might ever reach Millenaire complexity, your guess is good as mine.  I'd guess it would be low priority, at best.
