      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-] TFOR [40+ Integrated Mods] [No Rules]

4 posts in this topic

Modpack (for MultiMC):
Modpack (manual installation):
IP and port:

Q: What is TFOR?
A: A TerraFirmaCraft server with heavy emphasis on survival, exploration, and technology. It aims to address the following drawbacks in TFC:

- The near-total lack of technology and magic
- Not having many things to do once you reach the highest tier of items
- Mobs not posing much of a threat outside of the early game
- Few incentives to engage in combat
- Lack of things a person could use to defend their base
- Lack of aesthetic blocks, furniture, etc.
- Incentives to travel tens of thousands of blocks but providing no convenient means of doing so, especially between previously visited areas
- Etc.
Thanks to the mods that TFOR uses and the hundreds of hours that have gone into adjusting gameplay elements, I think this server does a good job of addressing all of those drawbacks and more.

Q: What mods does the server use?
A: The following.

If you have any questions or need help with anything, feel free to stop by the discord.

So far this has been a pretty good server. Very stable for the huge number of mods involved, and the one crashing problem I ran into was investigated immediately and (mostly) resolved within minutes of notifying admins in the help channel on discord.

Just from my personal experience, this is a hardcore server. I've been playing TFC on and off for years and it was a challenge just getting to metal tools. There's a learning curve involved with all the mods and it's pretty steep at first, even if you're very familiar with the vanilla TFC progression.

Some things you should be aware of that weren't explained in the server post:

- There's no /teleporting. There is a skyrail system to get you to remote regions, and a few portals and teleporters around spawn. Eventually you can build your own portals but until then most of your travel is going to be on foot.

- No Dynmap. The mod pack comes with Mapwriter, but I would highly recommend Journeymap. It combines all the features of practically every other 1.7.10 mapper, and most importantly it creates its own full screen 'dynmap' as you explore.

- No Towny or similar easy chunk protection. Instead you have to reach a certain tech level and build turrets and protection mobs.

- Hostile mobs are really hostile. They're modded and super aggressive. Even farm mobs fight back. It's not safe to run around out in the open at night unless you're in a boat. Even with armor on you can get swarmed and killed if you're not paying attention.

- No rules of engagement. PVP is enabled and pretty much anything you find is fair game. So far everyone has been reasonably friendly and helpful, and some public houses and donation spots can be found. But that could change very quickly if aggressive players join. So start thinking about a Dwarf Fortress for your base/home. Don't build a wooden house anywhere near spawn or high traffic areas, it's gonna get cleaned out, griefed, or removed entirely for teh lulz.

- Check the mods list and start reading up. The high difficulty is balanced with advantages from multiple tech schools, new/modded recipes, and some limited witch magic. NEI can reveal some recipes and combinations, but obviously not all of them.


If I'm wrong about any of this, lemmie know and I'll edit it. It's really just my perspective after many hours of running around and dying a lot. I'm finally making some progress but like I said the learning curve is kinda steep, even for a veteran.

Here are the new mods to add if you already have the modpack: * New version is 0.2.10-a15 on the right side. Be sure to move or delete the older version.

Edit: Antique Atlas was removed due to server side resource hogging. * Heraldry! Flag your shit.
