      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."

Create mod to extend day duration

8 posts in this topic

Hey,

is it possible to create a mod to extend day/night cycle, so days are not so short?

I would like to do that the same way like TFC slows down day/night cycle when no players are online.
 

How can I achieve this? Any ideas?

 

Reason for this: When we are playing TFC on server, days are very, very short. The problem is that we cannot skip the night because there are so many players playing and its hard to force all of them to go to bed.

Not sure, but doesn't the "Too Much Time" mod allow you to do this?

A few can mods achieve this. I myself use the time scale mod (the actual name is in russian i think, but the file is b3m or something like that. Just look up "time scale mod" and it should be easy to find)

In the end its best to try a few on a ssp world to test and see what wprks best for your needs.

And does it work properly? I've heard that some time modifying mods can break TFC mechanism somehow.

Too much time change day/night ratio according to season (unfortunately independent on latitude).

Is doesn't scale whole day/night 24h period longer, but give interesting opportunities.

In summer, nights are very short, there is still bright till 10PM, and therefore it is right season for exploring. Any tedious household works, for example forging, you can shift to the winter time.

It works fine for me, crops grow and seasons pass perfectly normal. All it does, that i know of, is extend or speed up the rate which ticks pass. I can even set it to go to system time. (If you do that though, NEVER set it back as it will break stuff.)

I think the day-night cycle is part of the game. 

I understand how new players could feel frustrated, not knowing what to do during the night.

Older players program their activities so when night falls they work inside the base.

In any case, the night adds a bit of challenge to the game.

I have to admit people have different play styles and are OK for you to look for a mod to get rid of the night, am just offering an opposing point of view.

I have even met some players that loved to go around their bases after dark and kill all mobs to gain exp or just for the trill of it.

i can totally agree with that. in fact im one of those "mowing the lawn with my bow/sword/mace" kinda people when it comes to mob spawns at night around my base. lol. i actually set it so time passes slower for me so i have to wait a bit before getting stuff done. makes me have to learn to efficiently multi task.
