Re: [MOD] Petz (petz) [mobs_redo|mobkit] (v5.5.4)

With the current spawn mechanism, I only see petz when I stay in one place for some time. When I explore new regions, I never meet any petz as long as I'm moving. Could you please implement something like "register_on_generated" to spawn some mobs on world generation, so I could run into m...

Re: [MOD] Petz (petz) [mobs_redo|mobkit] (v5.4)

I just installed Minetest on my Android device and started a new MTgame with only mobkit and Petz from ContentDB. Entities spawn, but they do not move at all. I can reproduce this behaviour on my Manjaro Linux PC. Aren't Petz supposed to roam around? Yes. Ensure you have the very latest versions: M...

Re: [Mod] Mobs Redo [1.50] [mobs]

With the current spawn mechanism, I only see mobs when I stay in one place for some time. When I explore new regions, I never meet any mobs as long as I'm moving. So regarding monsters, I am safe as long as I'm on the run. Could you please implement something like "register_on_generated" t...

Re: Reasons to build a home

I wanted to extend my mod so that beds can only be placed under a roof and worked with "register_on_placenode". Sadly, when placing a bed, my code wasn't executed at all. It worked with other blocks. Is there something special about beds, that they don't run "register_on_placenode&quo...

Re: Reasons to build a home

Hm, I've checked beds api.lua, but didn't find anything usable.

So I went with "minetest.override_item" and added something to the "on_rightclick" function.

Re: Reasons to build a home

Nah, seeing your screenshot I wouldn't dare to forbid storage rooms. :-) There must be other ways to make the player come home from time to time. The first step was to make him use workbenches instead of crafting new pickaxes on the fly. Maybe the need for sleep needs a step up. If the player doesn'...

Reasons to build a home

I really like building houses/castles/towers/etc. in minetest because it makes a lot of fun. But when playing in survival mode, I sometimes ask myself: Why should I design a super duper castle if a 5x5x2 dirt cube with no windows has the same benefits? Unless you're playing with mobs that could kill...

Re: [Mod] Snow, rain, clouds (with sound) [snowdrift]

Simply beautiful. My favourite weather mod!

Is it somehow possible to check if it's raining on a player?

I imagine a mod where you catch a cold if you get wet too long. Something like this or that, just with rain.

Re: [Mod] Settlements [settlements]

For your usecase, it would probably be much better to place the houses as schematics than LVMs. Not sure what you're doing right now Thank you for your explanation. I dropped the migration to LVM and work with get_node/swap_node again. I'm quite pleased with its performance. Latest bugfixes: - forc...

Re: [Mod] Settlements [settlements]

Some bigger changes since last time. Mostly under the hood. Every function with get/set_node has a corresponding function using LuaVoxelManip. After several tests: not much difference in performance. At least on my system (2014 Intel i7-4510U). If somebody wants to try both systems, set "settle...

I mostly play with valleys mapgen and heightmap is not really reliable. I suspect this problem is not resolved yet ?

Re: [Mod] Settlements [settlements]

Your houses are pretty small. I'm unsure weather they'll really profit from LuaVoxelManip or not. The mod doesn't use "set_node" too much, but the function find_surface with its "get_node_or_nil" is called pretty often. So the main reason for switching to LVM is this: Every time...

Re: [Mod] Settlements [settlements]

Nice mod! Villages blend well with terrain. Mob NPCs get stuck. Perhaps add options to allow advanced_npcs or working_villagers. Lava and water do not seem to be appropriately contained, as I have to rush to build walls around those liquids when a village spawns nearby. Is it possible to add more b...

This settlement was cut off at a height of about 31 (most likely mapchunk border) Hm, I guess I need to find a way to force load neighboring chunks.

Re: [Mod] Settlements [settlements]

Replaced my own routine of height detection, because it was too slow. The mod uses the official heightmap now, though it seems a little buggy.
I often get heightmaps consisting of purely -31000 or other values that are impossible. I'm trying to filter those buggy heightmaps.

Re: [Mod] Settlements [settlements]

Added simple height detection. Settlements are only created, when the height difference is 10 or less. So no hardcore mountain settlements anymore.
Still heavy WIP.
