Re: Change the way default sounds are handled

I see. Thanks everyone for the discussion, I hope this gets implemented someday but obviously the engine just isn't quite ready yet.

Re: Change the way default sounds are handled

I against this, as it doesn't really fix the problem. You're "fixing" the sounds issue for just one game, by hardcoding the sounds into the engine A similar argument could be made against the built-in textures. Why do we we need to define a heart, or a bubble? Why not let the games do it?. (I know ...

Re: Change the way default sounds are handled

If I understand what you're suggesting, sounds such as "sounds = default.node_sound_stone_defaults" would be hard coded in the engine? If this is the case, what happens when someone wants to create a game which does not use "stone", and wishes to use "rock" instead or, maybe no stone-like sounds at...

Re: [Mod] Better Carts [0.1.1] [better_carts]

Sweet! Thanks for continuing the development of carts! Not sure how familiar you are with GitHub; please ignore if you already know. You can create "Releases" (or Tags) which will automatically zip the repository content as a snapshot in time. Great for easy downloads. Didn't know that, one of my p...

Re: Change the way default sounds are handled

I'm in favor of this. I have a sound module in vision_lib for generic sounds so I don't have to repeat them across mods, but it would be far better for the engine to include generic sounds for node materials. This would be a nightmare for modders/game makers, while adding no remarkable advantage, o...

Do you have a public code repository somewhere?
Bit of a busy week, should have one up by the end of tomorrow.
There we go, added a GitHub repo. The download should come from there now instead of being an attachment.

Re: Change the way default sounds are handled

I attempted to implement this, but you unfortunately end up with dependency issues. Mods would still need to load after any mods that provide sounds https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/10134 If I read your PR correctly, you were trying to let mods register and define the sounds as opposed to ...

Change the way default sounds are handled

Currently, a lot of mods rely on the default mod to give them sounds through functions like default.node_sound_defaults. I suggest this functionality be removed from the default mod and added to the core engine, that way instead of depending on default, you could just call minetest.node_sound_defaul...

v0.1.1

Occasionally, especially when making turns, carts would rise a half block into the air. This has been fixed.

Re: How can I disable the player inventory?

Awesome, thanks so much AspireMint and rubenwardy! I think I'm going to do something similar to what rubenwardy said and replace the inventory, but perhaps use that formspec to display the player's abilities or weapons.

Re: How can I disable the player inventory?

This is interesting, but like you said it looks like it can only be used in a client-side mod. That could solve my problem, but it would require the player to download two mods, which would be unfortunate. Thanks though!

How can I disable the player inventory?

I'm trying to make a game something like Overwatch or Hypixel's Wizards (although obviously much less polished) to play with some of my buddies. Because of this, I don't want the player to be able to open their inventory. Any suggestions on how this could be done? I've tried setting the inventory fo...

Along with my other questions (see post above) I have a new one: How would I give a player "night vision", allowing them to see everything as if in daylight?

Re: Post your modding questions here

I'm trying to make a bunch of status effects similar to Minecraft but I'm having trouble. Please answer whatever questions you can.

How do I stop a player from taking damage in certain blocks, e.g. fire?

How do I reduce a player's fall damage?

Re: The size of Minetest's world compared to the size of Ear

According to www.minetest.net, there are 62,000 ^ 3 blocks in a world. That's 238,328,000,000,000 blocks, or 238,328,000,000,000 cubic meters, which is roughly one-fifth of the Earth's volume, which is 1,080,000,000,000,000 cubic meters. At least that's what I got.

The size of Minetest's world compared to the size of Earth

I did a bit of math and I found that Minetest has a world size roughly about one-fifth of the size of Earth, assuming 1 block = 1 cubic meter. I just wanted to post this because I thought it was pretty cool.
