Re: [0.4.13] LinuxGaming2 - A Server for Builders

Do you have the latest treecapitator installed ?

I remember i was about to debug treecapitator for the server, but i needed to get away from minetest.

I will setup the same mods as the server on my local machine to debug it.

I want to create something like that : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRrQSDqU-T4 Problem is, if you use nodeboxes to define a node, if will not tile correctly side by side other blocks, there will be gaps between adjacent nodes. What i need is conditional rendering : use nodebox-N based on the pre...

Re: Map unexplore python script

Map format has no support to know if the node was created by mapgen or by user, so, i think it is very dangereous to be used... We need a modified map file format (sqlite schema) that stores info about chunk modification. A simple flag to be stored into the database allowing to detect if a chunk was...

Re: Scripting Interface Like Raspberry Pi Python?

What you want sounds like client side lua scripting. We dont have that yet. What can be done is a lua client for minetest. I can do one, but i cannot understand minetest protocol (yet). I might write a binary lua host that runs lua code and connects to the server, automatizing player actions. Then y...

Re: Un-explore the world ?

minetest map file format needs to be appended with two fields per chunk:

update -> the date of the last update this chunk received.
modified -> weather this chunk was modified from the one generated by the mapgen.

with both field we can write map shrinkers.

Re: Lua Threads for Computer Mod

You are saying that as the sandbox used in deserialize is empty, this would prevent you from having a pre-loaded environment. But i already know that. You might very well append the whole environment at the header of the code sent to deserialize. The only problem is the lack of multithreading abilit...

Re: Lua Threads for Computer Mod

"that would not make sense." That would make a lot of sense. You are still thinking about minetest.deserialize as a deserializing tool. You must understand how that function works. Its a completely sandboxed environment that happen to be used to deserialize things. If you take that functio...

Re: Lua Threads for Computer Mod

I downloaded minetest source code to search how does minetest.deserialize works.

The idea was to create an alternative minetest.sandbox call that would return a sandboxed lua from C++ code, cutting the complexity of this project.

I couldnt find minetest.deserialize source yet.

Re: Lua Threads for Computer Mod

Has nothing to do with deserializing. minetest.deserialize runs inside a trully sandboxed lua. This means that it EXECUTES code that is provided as parameter. But it does so inside a sandbox environment, and returns the value. If you check minetest.serialize, you will see that the serialized format ...

Re: Lua Threads for Computer Mod

If you trully want a sandboxed environment, use minetest.deserialize()

Its was created for other uses. Parse your lua sourcecode and feed it to minetest.deserialize()

You will be only able to talk to it via its return value. But works.
