Re: There are too many PRs

The Minetest development procedure has a huge problem: There are too many open PRs (pull requests). IMO the root problem is organizational structure, or lack thereof. Everybody's equal, and that's cute and all, but that also means many conflicting opinions and visions (or visionlessnesses) and rand...

One problem: when I enable "mobkit", I save and return to the "mod" menu I find it disabled. So all mods that depend on mobkit don't work....

PS: Minetest 5.2, Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamom , last mobkit

I think that does not matter cos the mobkit function has a interval value for checking a spawn node.
Yup, there is a timer in the function, it doesn't do anything on most steps so it's really cheap unless something weird is done with it.

You could iterate over connected players and return true on the first found within 3 block radius.

Testing it I found a problem that affects your sailing kit too, when it sinks at flowing water. This is intended, allowing floating in flowing liquids causes other problems. Luckily you can customize physics, just copy mobkit.physics into your mod, rename it e.g. yourmod.funname , and make the modi...

Re: Mobkit - Entity API [mobkit][alpha]

Is there any way to restrict spawns to certain slices like min_height and max_height? I poked around the API doc but couldn't find anything offhand. There are multiple ways to do spawns, so specific implementation is best left to mods, however there's an example spawn function included - mobkit.get...

Re: Mobkit - Entity API [mobkit][alpha]

You probably shouldn't do stuff with entities in the same place where you spawn them, because technically they don't exist yet and their on_activate hasn't run yet.

I'd try doing it in on_activate instead, remember to call mobkit.actfunc first.

Re: How to change language?

This gave me hell too, took me about 10 minutes to figure out. The language setting interface became useless in 5.2.0, the two character strings are unintelligible. There's no 'en' to be found, and apparently 'uk' stands for Ukrainian, finally by trial and error I think I've found English is under '...

Re: I made the mistake of checking out Roblox

Haven't played Roblox myself, but I installed it for my young and been looking over his shoulder some. I can't help but drool just thinking about all the powerful tools that Roblox game developers have at their disposaal. Yet for some reason, I haven't seen anything worthwhile done with that platform.

Re: Vibrant Lighting

Is the water's color unchanged? The color of the water somewhat reflects the color of the sky IRL after all. Yes, water color is unchanged, I haven't touched it because it comes with MTG. I believe it's wrong hue as well and indeed, ideally it should be related to sky color, but it's a game/mod thi...

I've check the lua manual and it has sense: http://www.lua.org/manual/5.2/manual.html#3.5 If yaw is global and has a nil value, doing "yaw = yaw + pi" produces nil + pi. So it should be better make "local yaw = ...get_yaw() + pi" than "local yaw = ...get_yaw(); yaw = yaw + pi" No, the global one sh...

I think this pull request will dramatically make the sky better (and possibly unique on every server?) and I'm waiting patiently for it to be merged.

Re: Mobkit - Entity API [mobkit][alpha]

Shouldn't happen if you call it correctly, behaviors are called from within on_step, an that in turn is called only on active objects.

Maybe you're trying to call turn2yaw on behalf of a saved entity? In that case mobkit.is_alive should be called first thing to check if it's still around.

I feel like the sky is better in Minecraft. I mean the blue color, in Minetest is most a gray blue. Agreed.

Re: [MOD] Petz (petz) (v8.5)

That one is probably an engine issue. Small boxes around 0.27 and less can easily glitch into and through blocks.

The fix is on the way, I hope it takes effect some time during 5.2 lifecycle.
