      ATTENTION Forum Database Breach   03/04/2019

      There has been a breach of our database. Please make sure you change your password (use a password manager, like Lastpass).
      If you used this password anywhere else, change that too! The passwords themselves are stored hashed, but may old accounts still had old, insecure (by today's standards) hashes from back when they where created. This means they can be "cracked" more easily. Other leaked information includes: email, IP, account name.
      I'm trying my best to find out more and keep everyone up to date. Discord ( is the best option for up to date news and questions. I'm sorry for this, but the damage has been done. All I can do is try to make sure it doesn't happen again.

  1. Cool ! I'm glad to hear that. I think some of the suggestions are genuinely great, but I can totally see from your perspective that you can't spend all that time programming in what are effectively requests :P

    Good to be back, haven't been around in a while :P


  2. I feel like I need to point out I don't mean this in a bitter way at all. I enjoyed the time I spent writing the suggestions, and I never expected any of the functions to be coded into the game.


    I'm in a similar, if not the same position as you Jed. I don't play TFC anymore (mostly because of computer limitations and dedicating more time to real life things, reading, writing, and roleplay), yet I still monitor the devs' progress on the mod. Most of the suggestions I made on this forum, though few and far between, was more about expanding on current vanilla mechanics and making them better, but they still had some semblance of an interest in expanding possibilities.


    I think a lot of people are the same Sda, I've got a job, a social life and any single player games I want to work through. I think if this mod was a standalone game with better graphics, it would probably eat a chunk of my life, but I don't feel the same draw to play minecraft anymore.

    I also feel like there was never the community to fully draw me into the game. In the earlier days, we tried hard, I even hosted a server aimed at RP survival with factions, but there was never the population to sustain any really interesting interaction.

    I think if you could get a server running this mod with a decent number of players, you could have a genuinely interesting MMO, without it being any different from today.


    BUT back on track :P


    The possibility is endless, true. But our dev's time isn't. If you think your suggestion is somewhat easy to code, you need to come up with your code.
    EDIT: I also don't play Minecraft anymore...


    The question I posed was more directed at how much player suggestions influenced the game design choices, rather than if any of them were included outright, but I do totally agree with you and there were many times during my suggestions that I wished I could code to make them into an addon, though I don't think that was considered an option by Bioxx and Dunk at the time.


  3. I was quite active on this forum for a while, I mainly posted in the suggestions. I don't really play the mod any more, though I do keep tabs on the changes.

    I've always wondered what impact the player suggestions have on the games development. When I look back on the effort I put into those suggestions, I realize that I spent most of the time because I found it interesting to think about the possibilities, rather than a genuine belief I would affect the course of the game.


    Any thoughts ?


  4. I don't think anyone here is going to force it on him (I was joking in parts of my above post, just to be clear :P). I just think that as something many people feel is important to TFC, we should let Bioxx know that this is something we believe is important. Another fact to consider is that TFC has limited compatibility so many of the mods that improve combat in some way are not available for various reasons (adds something that conflicts with TFC, requires items not obtainable without cheating in TFC, etc.). I also don't think Bioxx should be forced into anything, and I am firmly supportive of Bioxx doing what he wants, after all it's his mod (as you said). I just think that in certain cases (this is the only one I've seen so far, combat overhaul is almost universally supported among people here.) he should be made well aware that the choice he has made does not sit well with the players and after that, well, honestly we can't do anything after that but hope he changes his mind. In the end I will still play TFC if it has better combat or not, I would just prefer if exploring a cave didn't require me to buy a new mouse because my left click doesn't work anymore.

    So yeah, I don't want to come across like I'm forcing this suggestion, as I am usually a strong advocate of taking what Bioxx said (said by him directly or through Dunk) and leaving it at that. But this situation is different, and Bioxx needs to be aware of that and hopefully at least he will reconsider his choice, even if he sticks with his original decision in the end.

    (I guess I'm just trying to justify my complete change of opinion on this matter, I still don't quite understand it myself... )

    Well put ! .. Ok then :)

    To be fair, it would be awesome to have overhaul looked at again ¬.¬ ... I'd really like some more varied ranged combat ¬.¬ :P


  5. Guys, if Bioxx shot this down, that is his business ! :L .. I don't want my suggestion forced on him :( .. Ultimately, it is his mod and he should stick to what he thinks is right :)

    By the way, I am honoured that a thread this old of mine was deemed worth rezzing :')


  6. Erm, the only verterans that really died off were you Jed, and Eternal sort of. You both still post though... Taco just came back, and I'm still here right? :D/> or am I not a vet? :/

    But seriously, You and eternal need to post more. It's kinda been all up to JAG, ECC, and myself to uphold the old standards.

    Course you are, I just feel like everyone is less active than they used to be :L .. Maybe it's a perceptive issue on my part :L


  7. indeed. its a far cry from what it used to be. I think i marked the decline when I came in... not even a joke.

    I wouldn't say so :P .. If anything you appeared during the peak of the forum, but I would say it lasted til after your arrival .. After all, you were part of the beautiful dream that was terra :( .. After that, it just seemed like the forum activity and quality dropped a notch :( .. Does eternal still post here much ? I always decided his departure would mark the death of "suggestions" :L .. This isn't meant as a slight to the new guys by the way .. You've posted some awesome ideas, I'm just reminiscing :P


  8. Ah enough modesty JAG :P .. I've basically disappeared while you're still here :L .. Between the two of us, you're definitely the experienced veteran now :P


  9. You guys are adorable, and if you haven't noticed, I have this "kind of attitude" because IDGAF about what random grandiloquent insecure kiddies in the interwebs that I will never ever meet think about me.

    GG no RE boys.

    It's not about what people think of you. It's about being a decent, respectful and contributory member of the community. Your view that "I don't give a fuck and that's why I'm being an ass" is so childish. I know you don't care what we think about you, but there's no point in even posting here if you're not going to contribute anything and spend your time aggravating members of the community.


  10. British accent .. I can see none of you are from the uk :L .. The concept of a "british accent" is as ridiculous as an "American accent" .. I am british, but I assure you, I sound nothing like them. The accent they use in their videos is an English aristocratic accent, not cockney, which is far less focused on proper enunciation and more on rhyming slang (apples and pears = stairs).


  11. Yeah, It's been quite a few half baked repeat suggestions lately :/

    The activity in general has died down a little :/ .. How has the community been going in general, I feel I need to play catch up :L


  12. please don't equate this argument to evolution, because I don't wanna argue against something I believe in :(

    This isn't like evolution though, it's some guy stealing a car from a factory, stripping it down to 2 seats and an engine and saying "LOOK WHAT I MADE"

    It's not the same at all dunk, so you won't have to argue against evolution :P .. The difference is that the idea of TFC belongs ( to an extent) to Bioxx. No animal owns it's species. No animal is deprived of the recognition it deserves because another comes along. The difference is that you guys have worked hard on this mod and have built up a dedicated fan base. To come along and copy the idea, yet claim to be a fan, is a betrayal of Bioxx and dunk and everyone else who has worked to make this mod what it is.
