Re: [mod] Biome library [git][biome_lib]

More updates: I've been tinkering with the mod to improve its performance some more, and the latest changes do this by reducing its workload. Instead of blindly enqueuing every map block the engine throws at it, biome_lib will now limit itself to only those blocks that are at least partly within the...

Re: [Server] VanessaE's Survival Server [5.4.0]

It's actually just a for-small-screens measure, as the Basic server was originally aimed at mobile devices, which might not have been able to show the full-size UI.

Re: [Server] VanessaE's Survival Server [5.4.0]

Bags are still there, they're just hidden/inaccessible because the inventory defaults to lite mode, that's all. You just need the ui_full privilege, to switch your inventory to full-size mode. As someone said in the chat, full mode might not work on mobile devices, but since you wanted it, you now h...

Re: [mod] Biome library [git][biome_lib]

I highly advise all users update to the latest available release of this mod (as of early today, that'll be commit 531577af ). Critical bugfixes! Turns out there's an engine bug, the effect of which has gone unnoticed for a very long time, perhaps because this mod's performance wasn't so great in th...

Re: [Mod] Pipeworks [git] [pipeworks]

1. There aren't many ways to deal with overflow, really. One way is simply more chests connected to the injector's outlet. Another is a trash can connected to the tube that's connected immediately adjacent to the node that's overflowing. Items being rejected by that node will end up in the trash. Or...

I requested but wasn't granted access to your file (or didn't get any email confirming it). Perhaps you've marked it private or something? You can just attach your skin to a post in here.

Re: [mod] Biome library [git][biome_lib]

In fact, I had hoped I'd be able to use that API.

As for lag, try the latest biome_lib in git. I thought it was decent already, but this should be MUCH better (in short: generation is now broken down into much smaller steps, to better spread the load).

Re: [mod] kaeza's/VanessaE's signs library [signs_lib][git]

It isn't fixable. It's an engine/client bug, or a glitch in irrlicht. Copy/paste has been variously broken in Minetest for its entire existence. :-P

Re: [Modpack] Home Decor [git] [homedecor_modpack]

There is code in place to allow for sleeping if I recall right. Problem is, HD's beds used minetest_game's default beds' sleeping code, but it just wouldn't behave, so that feature was disabled.

If someone can figure it out and make them work reliably, I welcome it.

Well at this point I'm mostly satisfied with the new theming engine, if you can call it that.

Re: HDX Textures (64 - 512 px) [git rolling release]

The 64px size should work okay on older mobiles, but I wouldn't go above 128px even on a modern device. It depends, too, on what all you're running -- that is, what game and what mods (or what the server is using), since that'll determine how much of HDX is actually put into use. At 256px, Minetest ...
