Re: Mapgen v7 peeves, cracks, cliff rivers, instamountains

Thanks, those cracks are the 'tunnels'. I've had another request for turning those off, currently the only way to do so without removing all caves is to alter the noise params 'cave1', 'cave2', i'll get back to you on that. If you want to widen them use the parameter called 'cave_width', every mapge...

Re: Mapgen v7 peeves, cracks, cliff rivers, instamountains

The convex caves are found using the default settings for mgv7. All the caves that crack the surface are essentially long, convex cracks The tunnels are not convex, they are convex and concave, if one side is convex the other will inevitably be concave. They are also not only vertical, so the first...

Re: How to delete V6 biomes.

All the biome APIs, and the registered biomes, do not apply to Mapgen V6 because it has it's own hardcoded biomes.

Add this line to minetest.conf, or set these flags in advanced settings, before you start a new world:
'mgv6_spflags = nojungles,biomeblend,mudflow,nosnowbiomes,trees'

Re: Is Hytale the Minetest/Minecraft killer?

Ah the 'killer' thing is from the video, and Antvenom is quoting stereotypical hype from elsewhere: "What's being coined as a potential Minecraft killer".
The usual specially-rendered scenes, very little true in-game footage. This deceptive mainstream hype is irritatng.

Re: prevent air insertion on login

No that doesn't happen in the engine or in MTGame, probably a mod issue.

Re: Perlin Noise Mysteries

Half: offset = 0.005. Double: offset = 0.02, The noise value controls 'decorations per node'. 'offset' is the average value. 'scale' is roughly the variation either side of 'offset'. Changing the noise 'spread' will not change decoration density. The problem with your parameters is that 'scale' is v...

Re: Post your mapgen questions here (modding or engine)

ShadMOrdre, There is no lua version of V7 or V5. If you search my mods you will find a few lua mapgens that are quite good code examples. I didn't know there was a lua version of Carpathian, best ask the mapgen creator 'demon_boy' in this thread https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=171...

Re: Post your mapgen questions here (modding or engine)

Vadtec sorry for the delay. Seed won't create what you want, custom mapgen parameters are needed. Since you want rivers and a fairly standard map Fractal is unsuitable, only V7 and Valleys have rivers. I think V7 has more chance of doing what you want because the mountain generation is independent o...

Re: What's the deal with MT on Android?

The 5.0.0 app will have the ability to use multiple singleplayer worlds. You can test the 5.0.0-dev app by using these regular b...
