Re: [Mod] Skylayer [0.5]

Hi Grigor, If you want default sky probably it's best is to define callback when a player joins the server (minetest.register_on_joinplayer). You can check callback and combine skylayer API add layer call (skylayer.add_layer). Here minimalistic sample which sets default sky for the server (with chan...

Re: [Mod] Skylayer [0.5]

Initial purpose for this mod is to manage multiple skies for player in cross mod way. One mod sets weather sky and few moments later different mod adds some temporal effect and after some time it removes effect and weather sky re-aplies without weather mod knowing. I'm not sure what now best practic...

Re: [Mod] Skylayer [0.5]

Thanks for reporting. I push some fixes to address the mentioned issues (didn't spend much on testing, so let me know if there still something off). Not sure about the ambient format, but if gradient version works it must be a formatting issue, as in the end, gradient value is converted and used int...

Re: [Mod] Skylayer [0.5]

I'm probably just missing something obvious, but is it possible to turn off the sunrise and sunset gradients. I have some space layers in my game and don't want to have those showing. I can't seem to find an option for it in the readme or demos. Thanks Yes, the sunrise without sun was a strange eff...

Re: [Mod] weather_pack 0.3

Thank you again for testing and reporting! MT 0.4.16 version compatibility fixes added so it should no longer crash. However, this mod uses new Minetest biome API and thus it should be used with 0.5.0+ version. Consider updating Minetest otherwise, some weathers (in this case snow and snowstorm) wil...

Re: [Linux/Flatpak] Flatpak builds (now on flathub)

Does global mod configuration differ for flatpak builds?
My local mods currently at location ~/.minetest/mods but none of them shown as installed from the game menu. Same thing with worlds. I'm new with flatpak concept and I wonder if I missing something obvious.

Re: Advice on creating highly efficient mods

Not sure if LuaJIT is what minetest mods developers should rely on if it is case that not every official build includes it. The only thing what matters is how well mod perform on user build not on developer (If you know what I mean). From my experience you cannot control performance of minetest lua ...

Re: [Mod] Skylayer [0.4]

Skylayer version 0.4 released:
* Added minetest clouds api support (color transitions can be applied for clouds too).

New skylayer version is not backwards compatible!, minor changes needs to done for skylayer definitions (see demo and readme files for reference).
