Re: [Mod] Greek [greek]

There is cement in basic_materials mod and too in the greek mod. Maybe, it can be good to add some setting to enable the use of basic materials cement. Indeed, this is a good idea. You can now use greek.cement = greek:cement,basic_materials:wet_cement to enable use of basic_materials cement as well.

Re: Mintest: Great Engine, Horrible 'Branding'

I think a better base game would be great. Base games promote base-dependency, which is bad. Mods should be as dependency-agnostic as possible (even if just by implementing conditional stuff). I'm not saying a base game is bad, I just think it is difficult to make a "good" base game witho...

Re: how would I draw a 3D line on a formspec?

The main reason to pick B3D over OBJ is because B3D supports rigged animations, but that isn't a concern here, so the only other reason to do so would be file size differences (which are negligible anyway). OBJ is a more widely-used format and has the "bonus" of being human-readable. I'm n...

Re: how would I draw a 3D line on a formspec?

Ah, right, I forgot the 16 multiplier (the floor/16 returns a mapblock position). I spent an hour and made a mapblock marker mod. 44loc that includes a toggle command. Also has two variants, but I've set it to the thin version in the attachment. Player pos 0, 16.5, 0: https://i.imgur.com/ws64qOs.png...

"Current player" would only apply to the CSM API. This modding is server-side, therefore there is no current player. There is also no "currently iterated player". Anyway, if you really care about per-player visibility, it has occurred to me that particles would also work. It woul...

Re: how would I draw a 3D line on a formspec?

1300 polygons is absurd for an entity like this. Just sayin'. That alignment operation should not be done very often, so it shouldn't affect performance much. It can also be simplified to {x = math.floor(pos.x / 16), y = math.floor(pos.y / 16), z = math.floor(pos.z / 16)} or vector.apply(pos, functi...

Re: how would I draw a 3D line on a formspec?

I am rather confused at this point, but I will take a shot at helping you anyway. First of all, the center of a Minetest node is on X + 0, Y + 0.5, Z + 0. There are various reasons for this, but it shouldn't matter all that much if you are doing things properly. From what it looks like, you are usin...

Re: how would I draw a 3D line on a formspec?

Entities are the optimal solution for this, as v-rob has already pointed out. WorldEdit and protector_redo both have similar region markers. Yes, everyone can see the entity, but that isn't a terribly huge issue. There was a PR to implement per-player entities at one point, I don't know what happene...

Re: Implementing a node that is walkable for some players, not walkable for others

Your teleport solution is better, regardless. The reason you cannot arbitrarily change the solidity of a node at runtime is because nodes can only be registered on load. So to toggle the walkable key in a node would require two nodes, swapping based on some external input. This would not be very eff...
