Re: The Sneak Glitch is NOT dead!

I missed the point of this thread. I understand that you don't like the sneak glitch, but why is it wrong to have it only as an option? If you don't like it, just don't use it.

Re: How to make a game that loads a prebuilt map with each created world?

I made a mod for that purpose: https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=24214 ( exaple usage ) It places a map when the world is created and it can place the map there any time after, restart it, etc.. However, it is effective only for smaller maps and it starts to be slow for maps which a...

Re: JavaScript for moddding

No, I'm not. Let me google it. Ok. So we have a code simplicity and a code speed issue conflicting with each other. I choose first because the programmer's time, creativity and efforts are far more valuable than a new processor. Processor costs like 100$ and programmer's work published for free for...

Re: JavaScript for moddding

I'm tired of these "speed" rants. You want speed -> write with Assembly language. You want more speed -> write bytecode. You want even more speed -> engineer an ASIC. You didn't grab a scripted language to gain speed. You need it to shorten the time you need to develop a program because y...

Re: Use SuperTuxKart's Irrlicht fork for Minetest?

When it fails to work -- then and only then, is it obsolete. There are plenty of programs that people use every day that haven't been changed in years, because they don't need to be. Keyboard handling is broken for instance. Each time I want to write the number 4 (and sometimes 7), I have to write ...

Re: [Mod] No Fall Damage [1.0.0] [no_fall_damage]

I was just wondering if it is even possible to remove falldamage from a game entirely. You have just told me that Minetest developers weren't thinking about such option. At least, there is a simple workaround. This mod will be useful in creating jump'n'run games because they usually don't use anythi...

Re: MT is an engine? (allow me to doubt it)

For many years, the most of mods were made exclusively for MTG. And I guess, it will last for a while because there is no game for which there are as many mods as for MTG. First of all, I think, no game should contain the mod "default". It should be called "mtg_core" for example....

A way to modify metadata of offline player?

It looks like if I want to do anything with a player, I need an ObjectRef to the player, which is available only when the player is online. Before I create an issue, I want to make sure that there is really no way to change metadata of an offline player. Similarily, there seems to be no way to chang...

Re: [Mod] Means of transport tracking lines [linetrack]

I have already implemented the bus. The display doesn't display anything yet, I will do it after I have more time. Thanks for the model again!
Also, I will have to tweak moreblocks a little so slope roads don't act as an obstacle.

Re: too much forum spam

The limit of reports per day was meant so that each post can be reported only once so if each active users reports 3 posts, they could still report all posts posted by the spam bot together. Another thing which may work is this: Make a weak spam filter which filters the posts by the most apparent fe...

Re: too much forum spam

I have an idea but it might be hard to implement. If a new user comes, all his posts would be hidden before a moderator approves his account. If the account is approved, he could post stuff as normal. If it shows up that the process of approval is too slow because of lack of moderator time, I have a...

The faces in wheels which aren't shown aren't present in the .b3d file either. Maybe something went wrong in export. It looks like the ani...

Mostly they are just flat tops. Sometimes there's stuff sticking through, like you see in the one shot. I've replaced the lava source with sichamine lamp. Won't be quite as easy to see, except at night. But so far we have about 9 man-hours on different games without another lavafall. This last one ...

That vein of sichamine in both our screenshots is a dead giveaway. [/EDIT] Looking at the three sets of scre...
