Re: [Mod] LSystem

Would this mod be able to spawn l-system trees as well? With some modifications and a third dimension, the screenshot might almost depict a floor plan of a house. Intresting mod! LSystem is thought to be quite flexible with it's l-systems. And you most certainly can build 3d structures with it. Sup...

That's bad.

Hope to see you again. Maybe with your next computer.
Have fun ( however that is possible without minetest :-)

Re: How are temperatures assigned to coordinates?

But how can that be? The callback literally runs thousands of times. So either calling minetest.get_content_id outside the callback takes very very long or reading the mod local values takes considerably longer than what i've guessed. Doesn't each chunk get generated only once in the entire life of...

Re: [WIP] Dungeon Test [dungeontest]

Maybe you both could join forces and bring a brilliant dungeon crawl to mt? I don't know, I like the idea of a more organic and darker dungeon that is truely random. Maybe it would be cool if someone else uses a different approach. Mine is too squarish, everything in a grid and the rooms are repeti...

Re: [Question]The mods should be clasificated?

Rating sounds like a easy thing to do. But actually it is not easy at all. There are several problems that connect to ratings. To make rating work these problems (and quite possibly a lot of others) have do be addressed. Who rates? The modders? A rating committee? How is that committee elected? For ...

Re: How are temperatures assigned to coordinates?

Wondering if one of you could give a brief explanation of get_content_id and what you mean by inside and outside. I am trying to learn but get stuck on things. The function minetest.get_content_id returns a number that is internally used to identify nodes. Mapgen data contains those IDs. The inside...

Re: Post your modding questions here

I just tested it and it does place 2 nodes close together. I found 3 within a 50 node radius. That's odd. That should not be possible. Could you send the coordinates and the grid size you test with? The question is how to fix this. I need the nodes to be seperated. If they are close then it will ca...

Re: Post your modding questions here

The hotspot is a single coordinate so it can only be in one mapgen block. Yes, but after each hotspot is found, a node is placed at the surface (using the heightmap) whenever the chunk that is getting generated is between -200 and 200 (the node in the surface might not be part of the chunk generate...

Re: Post your modding questions here

I haven't tested your code, but since you are calculating next_hotspot in all 3 dimensions, wouldn't a new block be created in the same area in the surface when a chunk gets generated further down close to the hotspot below? The hotspot is a single coordinate so it can only be in one mapgen block. ...

Maybe those nodes where generated after your mod already ran. Do you have default in your depends.txt.

If more people are interested in something like this I could fork the areas mod (or send a PR) and add some options to make it more suitable for adventure maps. I think Minetest is a nice engine for this kind of maps, so there should be something like this. Please do. I'd really like to see more qu...

Not sure if this is of interest for anyone but to be complete ... I've run some simple speed tests and it seems that, to no big surprise calling minetest.get_content_id outside the callback takes exact the same time than calling it inside. getting the IDs from variables previously set on mod level t...

Re: WIP: The Island

I like the idea of a quest and riddle based game. Although it contradics the unending (more ore less) sandboxy setup that minetest tends to. If you want others to help maybe not keeping your .zip a secret would help. A good way to start could be putting the struff up on github or something like that...

Re: Post your modding questions here

I want to place a block every 1000 nodes square. It should be somewhat random. I do not want it to be exactly 1000. The node will be placed in water on mapgen at surface height. I am not great with mapgen and was wondering what the best way to do this is? Will this be a new world or an exisiting one?
