Re: Discussion regarding Minecraft map to Minetest world conversion.

Hi, any news abou progress with Yours MC to MT map converter? Thanks Unfortunately I have not really had much time to put a lot of work into it lately, but I have the end of this week and all of next week free so I will work on it then. Current status is it can convert about 5x or 6x faster than mc...

Re: [Server][Game] Extreme Survival

Found blueberry and pine bushes - the saplings don't seem to grow several day/night cycles standing beside them and nope nothing, in general plants spawn and spread far too slowly on the server. Flowers take for ever to spread.

Re: [Server][Game] Extreme Survival

Items can be taken from Cobble crushers even when they are on protected land - some noob got a nice haul from mine. Pretty sure they died somewhere nearish to spawn so maybe I can find their bones.

Edit: found the bones and wouldn't you know it they have the "permabones" bug so i cant take them!

Re: [Server][Game] Extreme Survival (mt-0.4.9)

I'm not convinced that pine trees are actually spawning on the map - if they were registered on the server wouldn't the recipe for pine planks show up in the craft menu? Items that can be crafted from any member of the wood group would also give pine as an option if it was present - Ditto all wood e...

Does anyone know if this server is offline or the address has changed? I got booted awhile ago due to an error, and now I can't connect even a few hours later.
Can't connect either, wish I could because I am now a man with a plan!

Re: Convert Minecraft maps to Minetest worlds

This wont help convert 0.14.4 using mcimport but a top tip is to install pypy3 and change line 37 of mcimport.sh to

Code: Select all

pypy3 mcimport.py "$IN" "${HOME}/.minetest/worlds/$OUT"
This can result in mcimport converting maps 4 or 5 times faster.

Re: Hidden item economy

I assume you are using rnd's basic machines mod to make those items. If you are then you can also use a machine to turn tame chickens into mini-dragons (if server has dragons on it) they sell very well! You can also modify the chickens meta data to make it look like a player, or any object that has ...

Re: Are there bad seeds?

If finding seed that gives a nice spawn location is the issue then Amidst-for-Minetest is useful for quickly previewing maps https://github.com/Treer/Amidst-for-Minetest I'm suprised it's hasn't been mentioned already.

Re: Discussion regarding Minecraft map to Minetest world conversion.

Region files can be converted in parallel, actually since region files are independent of each other you could use multiple machines to do the conversion and merge the outputted map databases. Might be losing a bit of the "ease of use" in that case though :) Signs yes, I forgot to mention those. The...

Discussion regarding Minecraft map to Minetest world conversion.

It seems that there has been an increase in interest in writing minecraft map to minetest world converters of late, possibly spurred on by the fact that de facto converter mcimport cant convert maps made with the latest versions of minecraft (version 1.14.4+). Since I am working on an (unreleased) ...

I appreciate the attention to keeping a solution going to solve this maintenance problem.

Re: Convert Minecraft maps to Minetest worlds

Ah, I see. It sounds like it's really about finding a mature library that can parse as many different minecraft world versions as possible. Oh, cool! Java isn't my favourite language, but it's probably worth waiting to check your port out first before writing my own (if you open source it when you'...

Have basic_macines and basic_materials activated. Have not had a chance look into what is wrong. Probably something at my end - will look into it tomorrow.

Re: Convert Minecraft maps to Minetest worlds

Does not seem to work for MC 1.14.4 worlds: Interesting, MC 1.14.4 is storing biome data in 256 long integers instead of the 256 integers that would be expected in maps from that period, that's possibly the cause of the issue. I'd not seen this documented anywhere so it seems you may be the first t...

They are not! The param2 value seems to be kinda random and changes from one tree to another and sometimes even in the same tree. Maybe I made an error in writing the block format to the database, but I don't know how to debug it inside the game. And if a mistake was made in writing the zipped bloc...

ooh lots of bicycle stands and a long metal bench. Looks cool :-) It's a smart city indeed...

I don't think the parameter interpretation is (just) the problem: for many b...
