Re: [Mod] Advanced Trains [advtrains] [2.2.1]

mmmh pretty strange... My advice is to remove temporarily the version that you are using and download a stable version like this one: https://github.com/W3RQ01/advtrains My version still has the trains inside advtrains, just for safety if the new version (without trains) not works. Please do not an...

Re: [Mod] Advanced Trains [advtrains] [2.2.1]

While you're here VanessaE, it's worth mentioning in passing I'd like to be able to use the crossings from infrastructure/streets/roads/thingy as advtrains components. I did some work on this previously. Would you accept the contribution, including a soft dependency on advtrains, if I get around to...

Note: this mod is not intended for end users. It is merely providing functionality to other mods. It does not add things on its own. serialize_lib provides a way to store Lua table structures in on-disk files, similar to minetest.serialize() . It has been an integral part of advtrains for some time...

Re: [Server] LinuxForks (Lots of trains)

For the basics, you might look at the advtrains wiki at https://advtrains.de/wiki . Our server wiki also has some good documentation (https://wiki.linux-forks.de/mediawiki/index.php/Railway_Styleguide). Otherwise, the best approach is probably "learning by doing". You can look at how the r...

Re: How to add info to default debug output?

The F5 debug information is handled in the C++ code on the client side.

For custom info, you can however also create a client-side mod that registers a HUD with your info.

Re: How to make a game that loads a prebuilt map with each created world?

IMO support for this should be somehow implemented in the engine. There could be an option in the game.conf to pre-initialize any world created with this game by copying a world directory supplied with the game (in sqlite format). It would probably be sufficient to restrict this to sqlite database b...

Good to hear that the entity shading has been improved in the engine. I wasn't aware of this.

The MT engine does not support shaders on mesh entities yet, sadly. Mainly because since the passing of RealBadAngel there is no graphics guy on the core dev team anymore. The stuff in "assets" is pretty messy in some places, and I haven't touched these files since 2017. Possibly the model...
