Re: Post your screenshots!

Finally added remaining aotearoa and australia content to gal_ecology_plants and gal_ecology_trees. Cause you can never have enough realism in a virtual world during a global pandemic........

Re: Post your screenshots!

@duane, That is a naturally occuring surface level cave that spawned, with the lake inside. The mods are my voronoi mapgen with a 3d noise blended in, which produced the cave. The lake was made using my lib_lakes mod, which is really the bergsee mod from octacians OCD2 game, itself a continuation of...

Re: Can register_alias actually change the node in the map db?

It would be interesting to conduct one more experiment.

Can you add the aliases to the old mod, updating the aliases to point to the old mod nodes, and turn the "aliased" nodes back into the old mod nodes?

Re: Example mobkit mob

So is there good documentation / code organization to assist with identifying which functions would be used setting up the various mods. I've got around 65 animals, and at least 20 monster mobs, all mobs_redo. If general performance is improved, I'd like to consider moving the mobs from mobs_redo. H...

Re: [Question] Inconsistant behaviour with "minetest.global_exists"

One place where it might be usefull to check for the existance of a table, instead of checking for the mod, is when there are several mods which provide the same api. In that case you don't care if mod stairs_A or stairs_B is instaled, as long as both provide the function stairs.register_stair() it...

Re: How to increase mapgen_limit more than 31000?

So I've created an Earthlike world, complete with continents and oceans and mountains. Generating this map alone at normal scale, (60km x 60km), is possible, and considering the RPG possibilities, it makes for an almost infinite game. Instead, I scale the map by 0.1, for a 6km x 6km world. Everythin...

Re: [Question] Inconsistant behaviour with "minetest.global_exists"

There are countless mods where the mod name is not the name of the object created. 3d_armor mod makes armor object. It's best to at least "know" the code before coding against it. :) Look at the furnace, it uses furnace_active and furnace_inactive, but provides default:furnace, or for a ti...

The depends is correct, but not global_exist. Look for armor, not 3d_armor. There is no 3d_armor object.

Re: How to increase mapgen_limit more than 31000?

If I'm not mistaken, 31000 meters in all directions equates to 60km x 60km x 60km. Unless you are building with code, I can't see one person or even a small team actually filling the void. That's a good sized megalopolis in the real world. Not to mention the hard disk space in actually emerging such...
