Re: [Mod] Dwarf Fortress style caverns [dfcaverns]

There is one change I made to subterrane that might account for an across-the-board increase in resource usage. Previously, subterrane would only "carve out" cavern within the boundaries of the map chunk it was currently generating. I updated it so that it would carve out cavern spaces in the edges ...

Re: [Mod] Dwarf Fortress style caverns [dfcaverns]

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3. Or rather, as easy as 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.

Count the sparks. The decorative art in the formspec has a clue as to what that means.

Re: [mod] Torch bombs! [torch_bomb] 0.4

Okay, if you're sure you don't want awards for other reasons. But if this bug is the only reason you're removing it, it's a trivial one-line fix to incorporate into your own fork and I'd recommend doing that. I actually have a fork of my own with a branch where I fixed it , I submitted it way back w...

Re: [mod] Torch bombs! [torch_bomb] 0.4

This is a result of a bug in the awards mod, not torch_bomb itself. I've encountered this before with Digtron. The problem is that "place_item" is being called in some circumstances by the bomb itself when placing torches, not by a player directly. I try to preserve the responsibility for the player...

Re: [mod] Footprints and trails [footprints] 0.4

Sure, should be pretty easy to add. I just poked around a bit in Nodecore and it looks like you want to add footprints to the nodes in nc_terrain ? Try creating a mod that depends on both nc_terrain and footprints and has the following init.lua: footprints.register_trample_node("nc_terrain:dirt") fo...

Re: [Mod] Digtron tunnel boring/building machine [digtron]

Sorry about the hiatus on Digtron 2.0. A real-life situation came up that knocked me off of modding for a bit, and then when I came back to it I wasn't feeling mentally ready to face the beast that is Digtron 2.0 again. I've resumed work on Digron 2.0 now, however, and I think I'm getting back into ...

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

How does it compare to ambience redo ? ambience_redo offloads a lot of complexity into the "sound_check" function that a modder is supposed to write. In theory that lets you do more fancy stuff than what I've currently got in env_sounds, but it requires the modder to write all those conditions and ...

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

I'm all for the purely environmental stuff (lava, beach, snowscape, etc), but if one was also implementing a "critter" mod (i.e. minor non-hostile creatures), wouldn't it make more sense to have the sound emanate from them (e.g. an owl & a bird)? Or could both coexist? (I guess it gets tough becaus...

If you try this with the existing minetest_game you'll need to remove its env_sound mod, the names currentl...

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

Graphics are secondary. Sound matters. I was thinking about this the other day, wanting to add some background sounds to a mapgen mod I'm developing, and remembered that the default game has flowing water sounds now. So I went to see how it does that. There's a simple little mod, env_sounds , respo...

Re: [MOD] Commodities markets [commoditymarket] 0.3

Should be fixed now. Looks like the native minetest translation system isn't quite as clever as the old intllib one, it doesn't let you reuse substitution parameters multiple times.

I know other mods have torch crossbows too, so I put in a setting so you can disable these if they're redundant with existing mods also installed in...

Nice. Lava caverns are still very smokey, but they don't just instantly fill with smoke in a solid block any more - you can still see through them, to some extent.

Yes, it's derived from that mod. I mention it in the licenses section. There are several major differences, I've pretty much rewritten the mod from the ground up. paramat's not maintaining his version of the mod so it's not supporting the new soil types that have been added to the default game in re...

Re: Translation toolchain

I just added a step to concatenate strings together. It's a bit basic, I think it'll fail if you have the string ".." in your code (a string delimiter, two dots, and another string delimiter). But this is getting close to being able to handle all the mods I've got available for testing at the moment.

Re: Oil mod?

There's a simple oil mod inside my dfcaverns modpack, but it's very bare-bones. I created it because I didn't find an existing oil mod when I went hunting back in the day. I'll look at runs' mod as a potential replacement or supplement to it.
