Re: [Mod] Advanced Trains [advtrains] [2.1.0]

Orwell - I just wanted to let you know I finally think I found the issue, which seems to have been a station node (with a reverse) placed too close to a junction. This was in the section immediately following the problematic section. I'm guessing what was happening was that train was stopping too cl...

Functional, updated friendly NPC mods?

Hello, all. Can anyone recommend some current, functional friendly NPC mods that work with the most recent versions of Minetest? I have a private server set up which I use with my son, and he has requested having "people" in our world. Obviously, I don't want to add a mod that will be unstable, pote...

Re: [Mod] Advanced Trains [advtrains] [2.1.0]

1. Have you ever used WorldEdit on any of the tracks? If so try running /at_sync_ndb near the place. (Could be useful in any case) I have never used WorldEdit on the tracks. But I just ran that command, which said it removed six "ghost nodes." As I mentioned, I did fiddle with some of the TCB locat...

Re: [Mod] Advanced Trains [advtrains] [2.0.1 TSS]

Right, MT doesn't really test for barriers when playing sounds. To make the sounds realistic, major effort would have to be spent. Additionally, I would like to make the sound calculations client-side since the server is already heavily loaded on multiplayer servers doing the train movement calcula...

Re: [Mod] Ropes and rope ladders [ropes]

You can always use the silent bullet trains ))) I might consider them, if I could craft them. I'd have to come up with crafting recipes.

This is a great mod. I love the variety of signs. One question: I almost never work in creative mode. Unless I'm missing them in the code, I don't see crafting recipes for signs other than the generic large signs. Is it possible to either have some sort of crafting recipes or (since there are a lot ...

THANK YOU! I sincerely appreciate your taking a look at it so quickly.

Am I the only one for whom the "extrusion" setting with builder modules seems to do nothing? I've tried all sorts of values, all sorts of orientations for the builders -- the builder only seems to output one block in the given direction. I'm running Minetest 0.4.17.1 (though I'm pretty sure it didn'...

Worldedit-like capabilities in "survival"?

Is there a recommended mod or another way to use Worldedit-like capabilities (copy/paste/autobuild structures, filling blocks of a specific type in shapes, etc.) or some subset of them while only using resources you have available or have crafted (items in your inventory, in chests, or whatever, etc...

Thanks so much for modifying this to avoid unnecessary cave generation. Quick question: does the modification affect frequency of lava underground?

Yes, I've experienced the same problem as JoshMars. If you accidentally (or deliberately) mine the fire in caverealms (or the skylands mod, for that matter), it will crash the server.

Quite fun. But I did notice a few (mostly minor) things that might use a little "polish." (1) The press...

Re: [Mod] travelnet teleporters/bookmarks [2.0][travelnet]

Really terrific mod.

Is it my imagination, or does the "autorotate" feature no longer work in the newest Minetest release? (That is, when you arrive at your destination, you used to be rotated to face the exit of the elevator. That no longer seems to happen for me.)

Re: [MOD] cannons with a lot of features! [2.5] [cannons]

I'm not sure if this mod is still being maintained, but I recently downloaded the last version and get some strange behavior when trying to craft a cannon. That is, when I attempt to craft a steel or bronze canon, it merely produces an "unknown item." I can successfully get a canon in creative mode....

Thanks for the quick reply. I agree that a simple solution (like just turning off the sound if player is below some Y value) isn't going to account for all cases. But it would at least cover scenarios where you're hundreds of blocks underground and it makes no sense at all to hear rain. By the way, ...

Re: [Mod] Technic [0.4.11] [technic]

The noise would be more like X_1 + 0.7 * X_2 + 0.7^2 * X_3, where X_1, X_2, X_3 are uniformly distributed on [-1,1], and with X_2 having a frequency double of that of X_1, X_3 one double of that of X_2 (that is: there are smaller-scale variations). Thus, a threshold of 0.55 is quite less that 50% c...

Re: [Mod] Technic [0.4.11] [technic]

First, I REALLY appreciate the reply. Well, these metals are *on average* common. However, you need to find "veins" of them, which will be areas where you can find high concentrations of them. Thus, the gameplay objective is to make you find those veins, and establish an zinc mine somewhere, a chrom...
