      Server Move   09/13/2018

      I (Dries007) have recently taken over as main developer and server admin. This involved moving servers to reduce cost. It's likely there will be some more downtime in the future but most  things should be sorted by now. This forum is in dire need of replacement as the software is quite old and can't be easily updated. If you wish to discuss or stay updated, join our discord: https://invite.gg/terrafirmacraft. The forum will remain available to read, but will be locked in the future, when a new system is setup. The forum and wiki are now ad free. If you'd like to contribute to keeping it that way, you can do so via paypal or patreon.

      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 (http://invite.gg/TerraFirmaCraft) 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.

Why Suggestions Suck

14 posts in this topic

So here's the deal: about a quarter of the threads in this subforum are copies of an older, more obvious idea. Noobs will be noobs and won't search well enough.

Don't repeat an old thread. Plz.

Yet more threads will be about changing TFCraft, but it's a WORK IN PROGRESS. Most of what you see will be changed somehow in the future. Wait for a more or less finished feature before you suggest how to improve it.

A lot of the threads are just tweaks that belong in their own metathread.

Most suggestions seem to be a cool idea without much actual purpose, but a lot of made-up justification.

Try to think of an interesting gameplay mechanic, then a way to implement it.

... This isn't a suggestion, you know.

If the intention of the post was to be readed by newbies... well, most of them missed the all 4 sticky posts, and the search bar. What makes you think they are gonna look at this one?

If it was just a critic to this section... Well, you see, most of it's contents indeed ARE copies of older posts. And you can even take shit out of the bit that isn't. However, most of those threads had the simple purpose to improve TFC. And some of them, in fact, achieved that -like the thread about sand/dirt piles-. It's a sacrifice that's needed for the mod not to take a wrong direction because of the lack of users feed back -which i'm not saying it would inmediatly take without this subforum-.

Maybe the suggestions don't suck, maybe YOU suck.

We are not making this personal.

In general, you haven't made a very good impression on these forums. Maybe you're joking, but aren't you being quite a bit negative?

Enhh, That one comment wasn't a big deal, but it's just one part of a trend.

You remember Stupid Ideas, right?

a way to fix all the re posting, at least the ones caused by those who care at all to do even a little reading before posting( yes I know this won't solve the problem but I do not seek to solve the problem only to decrease the magnitude of the problem), is to make a thread that lists the ideas that have been sugested and rejected, at least the ones that might be suggested again, and why the link to the relevant threads.

and a post that lists the current plans for improving the already implemented features and the relevant threads

and a post of suggestions or proposed features that are being worked on for implementation and the relevant thread(if the rest of this is ignored please at least do this one so that we can actually know what is going to be implemented without having to read all the posts)

yes its a lot of work but so is sifting through all the posts ever made on this forum before posting. if you want someone else to work you have to too

plus getting designated people to improve the forums and not simply lock or sticky threads would be a really good idea
