      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."

[TFC 0.79.29] TFC Engineer

Hello TFC community.

Since I lately picked up TFC again in tech based mod packs, I decided to make/start a mod for just that.

The ultimate goal in with this mod is to replace many of the coal/fuel powered TFC mechanics with RF powered machines, but it still has a long way to go.

Current features:

  • Electric powered forge, both simple and advanced
  • Electric powered fridge and freezer for storing food
  • Lunchbox to store your food and eat out of

Future plans:

  • Ways to generate power instead of relying on another RF based mod
  • Electricity powered anvil
  • Portable cooler for storing long term food on the run, similar to lunchbox
  • Electric charcoal generation?
  • Way to cook clay items using power
  • And more, taking suggestions

Recipes:

Lunchbox

Forges

Fridges

Usage:

Spoiler

Lunchbox:

Sneak and Right click to open it's inventory and place your food inside of it.

Hold right click to eat from it when out of inventory screen.

Items in the lunchbox will decay at 50% the rate. This can be changed in the configs.

Forges:

Electric forge: Apply power to it and place heatable items in it. It will start when items are detected.

Use the gui controls to set the desired temperature of the items to reach, place empty molds on the right to catch metal turning to liquid.

The forge heats items twice as fast as the normal TFC forge by default. This can be changed in configs.

Induction forge: Apply more power to it than electric forge and place heatable items in it. It will start when items are detected.

The forge can keep track of individual items temperatures and has 2 modes: work and melt.

Work: items will only heat up to just under melting temperature.

Melt: items will heat up to a bit over melting temperature, and therefore melt.

The induction forge heats items 3 times as fast as the normal TFC forge by default. This can be changed in configs.

Fridges:

Apply power to the fridge and it will always run. Any items in the fridge will decay slower than normal.

The fridge only decays items at 25% the speed, while the freezer will totally stop decay.

These values can be changed in the configs.

Requirements:

  • TFC v0.79.29
  • CoFHLib or CoFHCore from Team CoFH website
  • Some other mod that generates power, i.e. Immersive Engineering

Download:

Direct download

Github releases 

Changelog:

Spoiler

v. 1.1.2

Fixed issue causing some other TFC addons not being able to interact with containers.

Fixed fridge and deep freezer power modifier not working on power usage.

Project on GitHub

You may use this in any mod packs you like.

Any suggestions and feedback are of course welcome.

I am not the best with textures, so any suggestions on textures/models is nice.

 

Notes:

Even though I know Java alright, this is the first time I have been messing with the Forge and TFC API.

This is also my first post to the forums, so hello everyone! :P

Have you thought about a powered quern? If I use Immersive Enginneering I could have Grist Mill :D

In my opinion, powered quern is a most important improvement.

Many non-TFC mods are supporting grinders or macerators, but they doesn't work well with TFC food.

Electric oven which automatically eject food before it incinerate, would be also welcome.

Is it possible to add negative temperature to frozen food, to prevent eating before food is heated up after picked from freezer? It would help for better fridge/freezer balance.

i like the idea of having to heat food from the deep freezer but wondering how hard that would be hehe

I found, that opening Lunchbox (shift+rightclick) make crash:

Some ideas for this awesome concept:

* Instead of a 'magic block' for your electric furnace and improvement, perhaps you could just make an 'electric heating element' that attaches to the existing Forge or Blast Furnace. Then the GUI for the electric heating element lets you regulate your temperature more precisely, and runs on RF. This takes advantage of, rather than replaces, current mechanics, and increases verisimilitude. The advanced electric heating element can let you set your 'work' or 'melt' temperatures as hotkeys in the GUI instead of just manually setting the temperature for ease of use, and runs faster. Immersive Engineering has such a block which will heat Furnaces adjacent to it.

* For the Fridge, seeing the troubles the Cellar Mod had with this mechanic, your probably only way of doing this is as you have done it, which I suppose has a fair bit of verisimilitude built in. An ice box has been used for quite some time to keep stuff cold, long before electricity, and most electrical cooling devices that people interact with are going to be 1x1 or 1x2 or 2x1 meters, roughly. I do like the idea. How about a one-block that stores as much as a chest, and a two-block (horizontal or vertical) to store as much as a double chest? Or maybe even a full-on multiblock that takes the number of 'fridge' or 'freezer' blocks, and uses that to calculate RF requirements and capacity.

* Electric Quern. Honestly? 'Electric Motor', put adjacent (or under) the Quern to automate it. Again, this brings verisimilitude, using an electrical motor rather than hand-power to turn your quern. But if you prefer, you can also take an existing quern, and craft it with the electrical components to come up with the electric quern. Since the Quern is a single block, in effect, it won't break verisimilitude to keep it that way.

* Baking of clay goods. The mod Automated Bellows mod also has a Kiln which is used to bake clay goods. You can do something like that, then use the Electric Heating Element to regulate it and make it run off of RF. So again, the Electric Heating Element is doing a lot of these things itself, meaning fewer blocks for you to add and code, and an easier time overall. This also gives the player an intermediate clay hardening system between 'dig a pit and fill it with straw' and 'full electric automation' that I feel is missing in the core TFC experience (which is probably the sole reason I use the Automated Bellows mod).

I strongly support this idea, and I hope you are able to flesh it out.
