Problems with number keys

It is a known bug that the number keys (not the keypad) don't work on some layouts on Linux. But I found something interesting. When I had "Slovak (qwerty)" as primary layout and english as secondary AND selected english as current layout, the number keys produced nonsense characters when ...

Re: [Experimental] More rocks / oregen / geology [rocks]

I try to use the builtin tools from Minetest. I used the experimental 30 biomes mod from Gael de Sailly and add some stone nodes. Then I replaced some stones with the new rocks. Last but not least I add some stones as ores (currently just one). I think this works very well. Good work burli. My idea...

Re: [Experimental][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

Progress: pipe generator rewritten to C++. What is more: I added support for sub-ores to Pipe and Blob (puff and sheet planned) and extended Scatter to act as sub-ore. Sub-ores spawn near or in their parent ores. Eg: diamonds in kimberlite. You can check-out my code at git-hub , but it need some mor...

Re: profiler graph question

rtt is round trip time. The time for a packet to got from client to server and back, like a ping.
rupd is update (upd) of something (r),
jitter is how much the value jumps around,
packets_lost is how bad is your internet connection.
Important fields are the RTT(ping) and FPS.

I found some old commits and stuff in my local repo so I pushed them to the origin (repo.or.cz)
and I also added tag last-usable-abadoned. I do not recommend reading the code :)

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

We now have 'blob ore' and 'vein ore' in c++. 'blob ore' is a sphere deformed by 3D noise just like your nyancat ore. 'vein ore' is in the same form as the 3D noise tunnels in mgv7. I know 'blob' and 'vein', but 'vein' uses 2x3D noises thus very expensive. I was reading the source of mg_ore and fou...

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

Thank you Gael de Sailly for bringing my attention back to minetest. I did not abandon this mod, I just lost ideas of how to implement this. I am surprised :) that author of the Valley mapgen is interested in this. I will do what I can, but I can't do on my own. Now I will try implement the pipe , v...

Re: Wrapping minetesetserver in FreePascal

Pascal...that has been a long time ago by now. It used to be Turbo Pascal when I last worked with it. Like most languages, it lived through the libraries it came with. FreePascal didn't have those libraries, so using other languages became more convenient. There is Turbo C, too. FPC includes Dos an...

Re: Wrapping minetesetserver in FreePascal

Did not touch the minetest source yet. Learned how to use libdl in C. Learned how to convert pascal o+ppu to shared library (was suprised the libld does not like plain .o files): use ppumove, it converts one or more units into shared lib and modifies the ppu(s) to use it. FPC stores unit information...

I see that the state this mod is now is horrible. Now, as I passed my final exams, i decided to spend more time on this.

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

veins are, geologically speaking, usually faults, and therefore planes. They can be intrusions, and then they're shaped dendric (like a tree). The quadratic curve will be used for (kimberlite?) pipes. Planes for hidrotermal veins. https://forum.minetest.net/download/file.php?mode=view&id=2657&a...

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

It indeed looks nice, I like the waving layers. We'll just consider any vertical edges to be "faults" like real geologists, and make up a good story about it! The faults in a singe layer are caused by switching "geomes". But I have a bug hidden somewhere causing whole layers to ...

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

As a former Geology student I can't help worry that rock types are deposited in entirely unrealistic ways in these images :^) A 2D mapgen seems terribly wrong. Perhaps you need to combine several 3d noise maps - one determining the barrier between crust(igneous) and sediments. By all means let that...

Thank you for the suggestion, Segfault22. I have been thinking about that. More rows would be needed in the table if you want to register rocks with different sounds or other properties, which could be difficult if you have a large number of lines in the ipairs table That is exactly the reason why I...

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

Is it intended to have such massive grouping of the same stone type? All I have hit so far is limestone...oh well I will keep digging. Thank you for testing. Sedimentary geomes are 2D. By digging down you only find one type of sedimentary rock. The noises are extremly difficult to controll. It take...

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

Added limestone and 3 coal qualities. Tunded the parameters a bit. It is difficult to get all parameters right due to nature of the noises. Statistics are printed after mapgen.

+1. I may say exactely the same thing, maybe I've not understood exactely what you say. Calculate the average number of clusters in the chunk (for example if clust_scarcity = 50*50*50 = 125000, this number is 512000 / 125000 = 4.096) Add a random float number between 0 and 1.

Ores with high clust_scarcity

I propose an improvement to current ore generator. Currently it is possible to define how often a cluser of ore can spawn. Internally, mapchunk volume is divided by this number to determine how many attempts to spawn ore should be performed in the currently generated chunk. But what if you specify h...

Re: [WIP][Mod] More rocks [rocks]

Hey Tomas, This is amazing work. Thanks! Ores should definitely be a part of this. It's a central aspect of geology, and you can't craft an entirely new rock system without considering how it informs the presence of ores, and vice versa.
