      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 Skyblock

12 posts in this topic

I am currently working on a Terrafirmacraft based skyblock pack, not sure how it will turn out but I'm hoping to gauge reaction and maybe get some suggestions here.

that sounds amazing mate, i would certainly be interested in following this project, and offering any help i could...

there would be a lot to think about, with all the different tree and rock/gravel/sand/dirt types - would you want to somehow integrate these into ex nihilo so that certain types of sand etc would produce different ores / minerals?

if you wanted any original music or sound making I would be happy to directly contribute on that front but im afraid my actual modding skills are less than acceptable!

That's the general idea, i also want to go through and modify as many recipes as possible to use the TFC ingots and such as well as a quest book, the biggest challenge at the beginning will of course be expanding the platform as blocks have gravity

aha yes, and you'd need an axe to chop the tree... and a saw to make planks.... the plot thickens......

I would definitely check out a TFC based skyblock pack, if it was well put-together. There's nothing quite like a good skyblock! You might need to alter a lot of recipes to use sticks instead of planks though, or maybe a way to make planks from sticks. I look forward to seeing it!

Should i make sifting produce TFC ores? as apposed to the normal ex nihilo results, I've been considering something along the lines of poor from gravel normal from sand and rich from dust to kinda approximate the effects of ex nihilo's existing system

You should have a look at the new Ex Nihilo since 1.10 there is no longer ore gravel/sand/dust but only ore pieces. and they changed the sieves quite a lot... with exchangable meshes to influence the output of the sieving. (playing a bit of SkyFactory3 should give you a few insights)

 

And with a TFC Skyblock you just can not in any feasible way start with a dirtblock+tree but rather some island thingy as with Agrarian Skies. Otherwiese you would have to alter the base game itself in ways that would just force it into no longer being TFC.

Yeah the new ex nihilo stuff with the meshes is a nice touch - but i dont think this would stop you doing the gravel=poor, sand=normal, dust=rich as you described as for TFC you wouldnt need ore blocks anyway, just the pieces

and the island idea could be the way to go... i'd like to see what that might look like.... 

although someone earlier on suggested adding a recipe for crafting planks from sticks... i think if you made this REAL expensive (say 9 sticks for 1 plank) it wouldn't change the core of TFC as it would only be viable when starting out but later youd still want a saw etc to make planks in bulk...

you'd also want to get rocks from somewhere.... i wonder if you could add a chance in that a rock item is spawned everytime a piece of dirt caves in - if that makes sense?

Well just have the player start with 5 basalt rock lying on the island and any further rocks are acquired by sifting dirt? (but i guess you would want to do something like.

Dirt = Basalt  Gravel = Diorite Sand = Rocksalt and Dust = Graphite and Kaolinite

to at least get the basics somewhat spread and. and yeah you really do NOT want to put in EVERY stone type because otherwise you might run into the problem very often that ppl sift dirt and then got like 8 types of rock but only 1 each and the last axe breaks... so they are basically done for

yeah true or a recipe that just converts all rocks into one central type - it would be a shame to lose all the rock types as that variety for building is one of the great things about TFC. Might also be good to add a recipe for turning rock into raw stone, maybe a 3x3 of rocks?

Posted (edited)

my current intention regarding stone will be to make all stone craftable into the next type of stone as people getting salt is or whatever like that isnt much of an issue

As for wood im thinking to start them with a vanilla tree and receive various tfc saplings from repeatable quests, the twist is that vanilla wood can only be made into sticks and ill modify early game recipes to be craftable with either logs and sticks or tfc planks

If there's a mod I don't think would be possible to make skyblock, I think TCF would be it. Good luck dude, sounds interesting :D
