Re: [Help request] A few doubts about how things work on Min

I count a tree height by the length of its trunk, hence I said the new trees sprouting are only 2 or 3 nodes tall. After opening this thread I've felled those trees and besides the shortened trunks, most trees would only have 2 or 3 branches, The tallest tree had a 3 nodes trunk with 4 branches; but...

Re: [Help request] A few doubts about how things work on Min

I get my trees from tree saplings. I'm still to get a bush sapling. Attached is a picture of my current tree farm. The average tree I'm getting is 2 cubes tall, and that includes the "root" bit, meaning I'm getting on average 6 blocks of wood from a tree (2 for the trunk + 4 for the branch...

[Help request] A few doubts about how things work on Minetes

If the question I will be posting are better meant for another section of the forum, please point there. After starting to use the v7 engine for creating maps, I have noticed when trying to create tree farms the trees tend to lag a lot before sprouting and are usually midgets, normally only 2 or 3 b...

It falls to the ground.

And, strangely enough just noticed that when trying to eat the eggs (again) regained health, without consuming the eggs.

[edit] actually, it was just the regeneration effect of having the hunger bar full (from hud_hunger mod)

As it is, what are eggs for in the mod? It seems I'm unable to either cook or eat them raw. A loose end to be reviewed later on?

Re: [Mod] Mobs Redo [1.04] [mobs]

The abnormal behaviour displaying mobs was gone just as it appeared. Most probably an error as I added the mod in an already created world or perhaps an issue with another mod. On another line: compiling a document with all the workings (a.k.a "users manual") for this mod would be a good i...

Kudos for you for the great tips. I believe I can get my hands dirty with this and try it out. Just one thing: by using an ore template, won't the oysters spawn inside the block instead atop of it?

I'll check your suggestion, as well. Thanks.

That makes some sense. I was, in fact, strip mining a quarry in one world and there was, actually, a large cave underneath my home base in another. Doesn't make that much sense the game engine keeping a dark spot where it used to be a mountain, if you level it. You remove the light-blocking blocks s...

Planting saplings does work, however it seems to be somewhat of a temporary solution. After planting and cutting some trees, the effect seems to be ignored, as the permanent dark spot inhibits the saplings to sprout into full grown trees. Even with torches around, the saplings seem to be unable to g...

IF it was the case, the permanent shade spot would appear as soon as it generate the world.

The dark spots I've came up with always generate on and around the place where I build my base of operations.

Bug, glitche or something else?

I've encountered in some worlds I've played a strange behavior of the game engine where sun won't light up the area surrounding the building I use to spend the night and store excess inventory items. This creates a permanent dark spot in the world. I can place torches to create light but even so it ...

Writing mods - a few basic questions.

Although I'm running the current stable version of Minetest, with all the commotion around mods for Minetest, I've decided I want to risk it and try to make a mod myself. Because I want to learn how to program, although it won't be exactly that, it will be a start. However, I do have a few questions...

Let's start by the basics: Bedroll and futon Bedroll should be easy and simple to craft and, most important, portable, only allowing the player to spend the night but bot reset spawn point. Futon should be harder to craft. Not portable, would allow night spending and spawn point relocation. Door, wi...

For Linux users, you can use gedit; its simple and expandable to insanity. For window$, I agree with the Notepad++ choice.
