      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."

as long as you have the base game down.. I think at this rate the modders might take over. but over all, minecraft is at the end of its life as a whole, and personally a release of TFC2 would be great. I just don't know how much traction it will regain. I stop in every month and lurk all of like the 2 new post and to see if TFC2 has become a thing yet.

Sorry guys, I've been pretty bad about working on TFC2 for a while. I really should update you guys more on things when that happens. 

Edit: I might do a release with what we have right now, which isn't very compelling and missing a LOT of content just to see if I can get myself back into things. Let me know what you guys think and I'll think about it.

Thanks for the update! I'm interested in trying out what you've done so far.

First off thanks for all the time you have put in TFC in general, i have had many hours of enjoyment from this mod, and thanks for the update on this i have been looking forward to the new version or news about it.

Personally i dont mind a release with a lot of missing stuff, especially if it could potentially help you get extra motivation to work on it,

I would gladly test play bare-bones early build. It would be nice to see what features have been implemented so far and get a sense of where things might be going. Plus, the feed back probably would be good motivation for Bioxxx.

Hope to hear more soon!

It´s ok to test things when they are not complete. Member when you had to make a pre-tool with a  stone and a stick from the floor in tfc1? I member.

I'd love to test pretty much anything with TFC2. If it's just some world gen with some torch crafting, I'm happy to help test that, as I always was in early TFC days.

Do you know when a possible release date for an alpha version could be? I know it may not be anytime soon but a rough estimate would be awesome :)

Ok so right now, I don't want to release anything until I have the firepit completed along with a raw implementation of the temperature code. Ideally I could have this done in 1 or two days if I wasn't busy with other stuff. I think that these are the only features that really feel that I need in place before I'm willing to push something. 

Animal AI is virtually nonexistant atm so there isn't much threat in the world besides vanilla baddies spawning(i'll do something special with them later). But with some basic cooking and knapping in place, there's at least some basic gameplay elements.

We aren't too far off from a release but I don't like to give release dates on stuff because I'm notorious for missing my own internal targets.

Yay! I'm so happy right now :D About release dates - they often do more bad than good to creator and waiting people alike so that you don't give them (especially if you know that often you can't keep up to them) is smart thing to do, so please don't worry about that.

As one of the aforementioned lurkers, hell yes we're interested.

What you're saying you have so far/will have at early release is at least of more interest than vanilla. And heck, once farming changes (if those are still a thing?) plus metals and the resulting equipment are in...it'd be pretty much right back up to par with TFC1, with the addition of more interesting world-gen and the mobs as a bonus; even if they're not fleshed out yet, they add to the atmosphere.
