Re: Penalisation of non-free content in ContentDB [Split]

scifi_nodes | MOD I was surprised to find scifi_nodes in this list. According to git repo, there is not (anymore?) NC licensed content. Or at least I could not find reference to that clause in license files. It may be a mistake or missing update. EDIT : Sorry, haven't read FreeGamers post before po...

Re: Lava

You should tell a bit more about context. Fist of all, which server where you connected to ? Or was it a local game ?

Since this is generated programmatically, is it very CPU intensive?
I tried to make it as much optimized as I could but it could still be intensive, depending on what you call intensive.

Re: Use group help

Hi, You can not test item group with your code : local name = minetest.get_node(pos).name if name ~= "default:group_sand" In that code name holds the item string, i.e. "default:sand", it will never be equal to "default:group_sand" (which corresponds to nothing btw). Instead, test group this way : lo...

Re: Game freezes system

Likely to be something different (game has evolved a lot in 8 years).

You should give some more information :
- Operating System (Windows/Linux + Distribution + version);
- Content of debug.txt;
- When does freeze happen;
- Any other information that may help;

Re: One pos and one direction

Use the line equations : x = x0 + dx * p y = y0 + dy * p z = z0 + dz * p (dx, dy, dz) is the direction vector. (x0, y0, z0) is the starting point. Manage to have the maximum absolute of its coordinates = 1 (easy to do by dividing coordinates by the max absolute value) Then you can simply do p = p + ...

Re: How do you create an online multyplayer server?

First of all, you need a computer to run the server. It could be a computer at home but it have to be powered on when your players want to join. It could also be a server hosted in a datacenter by a company. IMO this solution is not expensive (a few € or $ per month) regarding to the service. You ha...

Re: Suggestion for ContentDB- making custom games

Good games are more than a collection of mods on top of MTG. If they were just that, then there's no need for games - you could just use a modpack. Good games customise their content to achieve polish, and often aren't based on Minetest Game at all. I totally agree with Rubenwardy. Making games is ...

Ok, I dont know how to describe it :D If it's a FPS issue, this could be due to the huge amount of leaf nodes. It could be an ABM issue or something like that (game computation) but no extra ABM is sup...

Re: [mod] Grunds [grunds] [biome]

I see, this is an issue with Lua not Jit. Thought all MT instances would use LuaJIT now.

The change is in mapgen stuff so it wont affect the command.

Re: [mod] Grunds [grunds] [biome]

But actually, v6 has no biomes so trees will only spawn with /grow_grund command. I'm not sure to setup any rule for tree spawning. Biomes are so good at that.

Are you looking to build more concepts from the original narrative?
Not sure yet. I think the original game is too poor regarding to what Minetest can do but it could be found to develop something around it.

Mapgen V6 is ready. I have to add a privilege on the command to prevent abusing.

Stellar work! Does the algorithm support trees of different scale? Yes ! They are randomly generated according to (a lot of) settings.

Very impressive looking and very decorative. Thanks! Perhaps other things than the trees ought to be enlarged in that world as well. Yes, a sort of Lilliputian world. Algorithm, wich is very different from usual mapgen algorithm can probably create much more than trees. But for now I'm foccusing on...

Hi Gundul, hope you're doing well. Actually I had a chat command at first to test trees. I guess the command is still here but the area is not large enough. End of branches are cut.

This mapgen could interest you : viewtopic.php?t=20840

I haven't yet worked on integration to other mods permitting to "stack" worlds. But that would be interesting to do it so. I guess there will be answers about such "stacking" mods here soon.
