Re: [Mod] villages built up by villagers [working_villages]

First of all: Thank you for your work SFENCE. I am very happy that you are helping me with this project.
I will try to test and merge your changes as soon as I get the time to.
Also: since you are using GitHub and properly forking and branching the project, why not create pull-requests there?

Re: [modpack] journal [journal]

If you clone the mod you either need to install and activate the modutil mod or you need to clone it recursively. If modutil is not present you will get the "journal/modutil/portable.lua: No such file or directory" error. To get the submodules, if you have already cloned the repository, yo...

Re: [Mod] villages built up by villagers [working_villages]

Why working_villages.villager:dig(pos) method calls minetest.remove_node(pos) instead of minetest.dig_node(pos)? I used that because minetest.dig_node(pos) drops the items from the node. I have changed the dig behaviour to use minetest.dig_node(pos). Now it may happen that villagers occasionally le...

I had snow and freezing in a temperate biome and snow was falling inside a building. Those would be some meaningful things to improve.
I should add heat checks, that's a good idea.

Re: [Mod] Weather (Snow, Rain) [weather]

Interesting bug, I think it occurs when there is no weather registered. I will fix this as soon as my computer is fixed.
However if no weather is registered, that would suggest that there is another bug.

Hey guys,

Re: (request) flying mods!

As you can see from "attempt to index global 'privs' (a nil value)" the variable called privs is not initialized at that point. It is accessed in flyboy/init.lua on line 22 which is probably "privs.fly = true". It seems there is a line before the part you copied in the binoculars...

Re: [Mod] new Factory [factory]

Conveyor belts can now move players
Deactivate this in the options if you use an earlier minetest version than 5.1!
Polls about this new feature are in the factory discord.

Conveyor belts item drop behavior is left unchanged.
The poll was moved to the factory discord for later decisions.

Sure you can do that. The more effective way is putting conveyor belts on top of the digger. The items will then spawn on them.

Hiding all behind spoilers isn't a good idea. I don't use JavaScript often. Thus, the spoiler cannot be unfolded. It's also documented on Github, and that at least is readable.
