Re: [Mod] Nether [nether]

What is 'unic'? Unique? Yeah - making lava related treasures is a good idea, since the nether can make those valuable! Something that enables crossing lava would be good, like a boat or frostboots-for-lava. The hang-glider is ideal for treasure, but it has a super-cheap recipe that makes it zero eff...

Re: [Mod] Nether [nether]

It's not really my mod, I've just been contributing a lot to it because IMO the Nether should be epic! If you're judging the darkness by screenshots I've posted, they have some gamma issue making them appear much much darker on other devices. However, until the nether fills with lava it can be rathe...

Re: [Mod] Nether [nether]

READ MY PAINFUL JOURNEY TO DISCOVER THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM :) thanks for investigating. It sounds like you weren't able to reproduce the issue of a portal igniting in the Nether which teleports you back to the Nether instead of to the surface? Regarding the Obsidian Block / Obsidian confusion, mi...

Re: [Mod] Nether [nether]

biomes or better yet seperate "layers" that you need to make more portals to travel too. that way you could go deeper into hell. That'd be cool, and Independent mods can already add extra layers, as nether provides access to its portals API so other mods can create their own realm portals...

Re: [Mod] Hallelujah Mountains [cloudlands]

yeah, the islands are effectively on a 2d height map. A 3d mode where they follow 3d "eddy field-lines" and fill a volume rather than a layer is a nice idea, and I've just added it to my wiki, but I don't expect to work on it in the foreseeable future.

The cloudlands setting "Use lowland biomes" should be turned off in Ethereal unless you want to add new biomes. Ethereal's trees and default biomes specify their altitude ranges, so the cloudlands will be floating above the alpine line (always snowy) unless extra biomes are added at the cl...

Re: Wilhelmines Texture Pack – Inspired by the colors of Nature!

After installing this texture pack through the menus/contentDB, I wasn't able to find it to switch it on because it was named only "12345" in a long list of other mods and texture packs.

Time to update that working name in texture_pack.conf to wilhelmines :)

Your edit has cleared up my confusion. Both videos are from Minetest Game with the nether mod. The nether mod provides a Portals API and currently has a dependency on MTG's "default" for lava and obsidian, so only runs with Minetest Game. Mineclone 2 provides its own nether system but that...

Re: Core

Client/server, or single-player?

If this is a client, could the minetest server be used to save half that work? I feel like the last 20% of these engines is 99.9% of the work, so people get "Minecraft engine" demos working famously quickly, but not a game.
