Re: Merge craft item and tool

You are the only core developer to comment on the issue, there is one other community member who has voiced their support and Wuzzy stated that he was unsure. I was hoping to get insight from some of the rest of the core development team before starting on a pointless project. If it continues to get...

Merge craft item and tool

I want to propose that we merge craft items and tools. So far I know of three differences between the two - tools have wear - tools can have their wear repaired if two are placed in the crafting grid together - there is a hard coded stack max of one The stack max is variable for craft items and can ...

Re: Teamwork

It‘s a Good Idea, but there are already methods. PR on Github and the lable Help wanted. On the Forum you just have post your Question/Problem in the right Subforum. For Minetest's GitHub help wanted is for engine development, not mods. Placing the tag on your mod only does a little, especially if ...

Re: [Mod][Framework]Guns[Help needed][0.1]

Update
Thanks to help from Octacian the bugs I have identified are gone!!!!
I also added a gravity to bullets and power to guns. The lower the power the gun the sooner it arcs down and the lower range the gun has.

Re: Style guide for automated api.txt?

Structuring in markdown could be beneficial but it could also provide issues with automation. If you want to automate pulling from the api file you need a specifically structured api file, almost as if it is code itself. You could do it but I feel like it would distract from the importance of machin...

Teamwork

Hey guys, it has been discussed in multiple places that the number one thing slowing the development in the community is a lack of teamwork. There are a lot of projects that die because the developer alone can not complete everything. I personally have also noticed that there are a lot of people who...

Re: Help in new versions for even better upgrades!

If your skills lie in audio and images then I would suggest heading over to the mod and game sections. Mods are what add content to the game and that is where the media resources are developed. See if there is a project you can help with.

Style guide for automated api.txt?

I want to propose a style guide for formatting api.txt files. I think it would be beneficial for the information to be able to be collected by a script then transferred into other resources such as collected api guides and resources for IDE's. What do you guys think?

Ruben if you can comment I would like to ask something about this statement. How do we distribute a separate game using the engine? As far as I have seen you wo...

Re: Big vs small mods

What about an annoying chain of dependencies, if you are splitting mods by feature this is probably going to happen, especially with content adding mods. Are there any issues with this?

I am more than interested, I still have much to learn and working on a project with more experienced developers would be the best way for me to do it. What is your idea for a game and lets move further discussion to another location (to not fill up this thread with discussion of a single game idea)

I really feel you on the teamwork, If I had a team helping me with my projects they would probably all be very functional but alas there is one scatterbrained person working on them which results in minimal progress and eventually abandonment due to frustration.

I am just curious what every ones feelings on big and small mods. What I mean by big is mods that add a lot of features all in one mod and mods that only add one feature or concept is a small mod. *nothing to do with the physical size of the mod* So far I am not a fan of big mods, they lack the modu...
