Re: [Mod] EM Dungeon Generator [em_dungeon_gen]

Just to let you guys know, the latest changes that I made to this mod (not pushed to github yet) make use of a newly added feature to the lua modding api that allows you to change the chunk size in a mod. This means that it will not work (properly) with 0.4.13 anymore. Since the base of the mapgen i...

Re: Post your modding questions here

I also need to know if there is a way to make a node not highlight when pointed at but still not let the player point through it. If I set pointable = false then the player can point through it. The same goes for if I set selecetion box to 0,0,0,0,0,0. I also wanted to know about this. And even ano...

Re: [Mod] Telemosaic [telemosaic] (WIP)

Version 0.3.1 released Yeah, that was fast :-/ Tested it and everything is working fine. Some remarks: - Since, as I pointed out earlier, this teleporter has the advantage of simplicity, could you elaborate on why you think 3 tiers of extenders would be a good idea? Is it because you're planning si...

Re: [Game] Pixture

Also if you want to simplify your recipes an easier method but still using fiber would be and I'm going to use the wooden pick as an example [...] I'll do that, see if it makes it intuitive to craft. I personally like the current recipe. I think they don't have to be 'simplified' because you can ch...

Re: Post your modding questions here

And it didn't work. You can get chunksize with get_mapgen_params() but you can't change it with set_mapgen_params().

Re: Post your modding questions here

minetest.set_mapgen_params(MapgenParams) may be the solution https://github.com/minetest/minetest/blob/master/doc/lua_api.txt#L2007 you can set seed, flags, water level and mgname. Thank you very much for your answer. This seems to be the solution, but the information in the wiki contradicts it. Fi...

Re: [Mod] Telemosaic [telemosaic] (WIP)

I'll try to create some nice sounds. It may take some time, but I'll report back as soon as possible. While writing this list, I thought of a mechanical change: instead of configuring beacons with "keys", how about holding a beacon block in your hand, and using it on a beacon on the ground...

Re: Post your modding questions here

Maybe it would work to use minetest.setting_set (http://dev.minetest.net/minetest.setting_set). I tested it, and it's not the solution. First problem is that it changes the user setting in his minetest.conf file, so it may cause problems with his other worlds. Second that just putting it in init.lu...

I don't know if this is the right thing, but it kinda 'feels like' the right thing. I'll test it soon.

Re: [Game]Minetest_Hades[1.3]

Do you have technical problems with github or are you still not familiar with git itself? If it's the latter, try this course: https://www.codeschool.com/courses/try-git
It's very simple and will get you started quickly.

Re: [Mod] Telemosaic [telemosaic] (WIP)

I'm liking this a lot! I think this kind of teleporter is very easy to integrate in a game because of it's simple design that would fit a variety of themes and the absence of menus. And it also looks pretty good!

Re: Post your modding questions here

Games can have a minetest.conf file that will override some settings, right? (I never found this in the documentation, but I found a minetest.conf file in a lot of games)

Can a mod do the same?

Re: [WIP] EM Dungeon Generator [em_dungeon_gen]

First of all, I was using the terms 'block' and 'chunk' swapped, but it seems like you already noticed that Actually, you can set_node in an ungenerated chunk and it will get stored. The problem is that if you are using a mapgen other than singlenode (which you should if you want the world to be som...

Re: [WIP] EM Dungeon Generator [em_dungeon_gen]

But I don't think there's one that would work good both for infinite and finite mazes. This is a very real issue. I wish I had the option to do things in a different manner within minetest. Right now we generate the map using minetest.register_on_generated, where we tell it what to do when a new bl...

Re: [WIP] EM Dungeon Generator [em_dungeon_gen]

There's a get_param2_data() and set_param2_data() function. Just like you do alread with get_data() and set_data() for the content id of the node. There's another VM that contains param2 (rotation) data, you can use the same index for both VMs, see https://github.com/paramat/flexrealm/blob/master/i...

I have one question: If I place stair nodes inside the VM, how can I define the direction the node will be facing? This was the first reason why I decided to not make the stairs or the doors inside the VM.

Re: [WIP] EM Dungeon Generator [em_dungeon_gen]

You place torches after all the lighting updates, place them in the VM immediately after creating pits, and before 'vm:set_data(data)' and 'vm:calc_lighting()'. Ah but, you need schematic stairways placed before lighting calculations, try placing stairs before the VM. Or much better: don't use a sc...

Re: [Game] Pixture

kaadmy, I'm starting to believe that in different OSs the random number generator behaves differently. To be more specific, I think it has something to do with the C library implementation your OS uses, because the lua random generator calls the C rand() function. What's your OS? Could you test what...
