Re: How do we make flowers reproduce is minetest 5.0?

For the curious, can you fill us in on what a good mechanism would like? (Programmer but not a game programmer.) How would you design it if you had a clean slate?

Been thinking it'd be fun to have build-parties. Anyone want to team up for a couple hours to put together a space elevator? Illuna has biomes all the way to y+31000

Continuing to play with ideas from the Small House Movement. This time I wanted to build an all-wood house that didn't just look like a misplaced crate, or make a mess of the surrounding forest.

Re: Why Your Server is Messed Up ;) part 1, Spawn

Otter - nice summary; I've had similar experiences of showing up on a server and not being able to get away from spawn before I starved.

Re: Request for donations for my development work

Not sure if this is your kind of thing, but I automatically give small donations to sites I visit via Flattr. I know they support github accounts, so that might be an easier way to turn things around.

So - bad news / good news...

Hadn't seen anyone using the Minetest textures directly in their blueprints, but it's pretty easy to set up with TileD. Open source crossovers ftw!

Re: New Mod/Content Database by May

Cool idea, it's inspiring me to imagine how I'd implement the same concept. There's an older "Minetest Bower" site, maybe worth looking into whether that format / api has anything to offer. GraphQL also offers some nice features over REST, though that probably isn't realistic if your teacher is seri...

You constantly look for opportunities to do *hard* labor under *insane* working conditions even though food is abundant, weather is a non issue, and money can't get you anything that wouldn't be easier to just pick up off the ground or make yourself.

Interesting project - you may be over-complicating the requirements.

Minetest Recipe Conflict Detector

Sometimes mods create crafting recipes that conflict with each other, resulting in craft items that can't be crafted. I put together a mod and command line tool to make it easier for server administrators to identify conflicts in their configuration. There's a quick overview here: http://www.codefor...
