Re: [Mod] Structures [git] [minetest_mods_structures]

Alright. I've updated Minetest and am now thinking of taking another look at both Structures and Creatures, to at least bring them up to date with the latest code after 4 years since I last touched them. I have a small favor I'd like to ask if anyone has a few minutes to spare: Could you please list...

Re: [Mod] Creatures [git] [minetest_mods_creatures]

Will this mod be updated once the player API comes in 5.0? It is kinda buggy in modern versions and could use the new functions such as player collision box changes and such. It has been quite a while since I've been active on MineTest. I will have to see about it sometime. For now I'm hoping the m...

Re: Creating decentralized worlds with IPFS

But that's just it, it wouldn't be realtime because all of the message passing for every single user event would be subject to increasing network latency across each additional peer to ensure synchronicity. In multiplayer games demanding responsiveness, like PVP for example, I'm inclined to believe...

Re: Creating decentralized worlds with IPFS

I think, you didn't get my problem. Imagine the following situation: Player A lives far away so noone else downloads his blocks. He build a nice house and goes offline. After that, player B goes online and doesn't know anything about player A. He goes to the same blocks where player A lives and bui...

Re: Creating decentralized worlds with IPFS

I can imagine that this might work somehow. If each player had to calculate updates of all blocks those are currently updated, it would lag more. Maybe the players could update only a part of them when there are too many players online. I thought that playing on a server like this could result in m...

Re: Creating decentralized worlds with IPFS

Nice idea. I can see several problems those have to be solved: Is there any mechanism to update mods? Who has the right to update mods? Everyone connected to the server is something like an owner. All cheats in singleplayer now work in multiplayer too. And there isn't anyone to do anything against ...

Creating decentralized worlds with IPFS

I have a very interesting idea that I'd like to discuss. It's a pretty radical suggestion, but just as amazing and worth considering in my opinion. It's a proposal I'm planning to poke several game engines about, and Minetest (with other Minecraft like games) would be the first to benefit from such ...

Re: Minetest on a spherical planet

This must be the most amazing thing that's been done with Minetest so far. I truly hope development on the engine fork will continue: This idea is much too good! Subscribing to this thread for any more updates.

Look in creatures_races_default/init.lua at the creatures:register_spawn functions. The parameters there define the overall spawn rate of each creature.

Re: [Mod] Creatures [git] [minetest_mods_creatures]

Yes: I remember a problem of my mod was that you have to disable player.lua manually. I was going to make a pull request for minetest_game which made it possible to turn off the default player animation system using a variable, but I took my long break from Minetest modding at that time. Creatures w...

Re: [Mod] Creatures [git] [minetest_mods_creatures]

and I agree with the previous post about the ghost thing, this is a good framework but ghosts and posessing do not always fit in with every subgame/mod The issue again is that, there's no better system with the default creatures; The player is given free choice as to which creature to possess, so c...

Re: [Mod] Creatures [git] [minetest_mods_creatures]

someone needs to fork this mod and make it actively developing again, it is so outdated, you can't even use 3d armor with this mod yet. Actually you can't use 3D armor because my code and models simply aren't compatible with it, intended plans included an armor system originally for the mod. As for...

Re: Extruded drawtypes

I have seen many people say that terasology is almost unplayable with effects enabled. It tends to look 'good' in screenshots (and many enthuse over the screenshots alone) but playing it is very different. Maybe terasology is not a good example. It all depends on hardware. The nice thing about such...

Yep... great example: Compare Terasology and Minetest (both with highest effects) and it's impossible not to see exactly what I mean.

Re: Extruded drawtypes

Yes... I can't argue what paramat said there. I do believe the MineTest team ignores visual aspects in general... which isn't referring to models and textures, as much as to special effects and shaders. This is a general divide in the community; Some players (like myself) are interested in everythin...

??? Images??? it interest me. RealBadAngel had a Minetest fork that contained them, of course in an experimental and unfinished state. I don't think I have screenshots any longer unfortunately, but all I can say is they looked amazing! I wonder if and when anyone will ever attempt to bring them bac...

Re: Extruded drawtypes

Very well said ShadMOrdre, I agree with that. My primary problem with Minetest, which I stated in all sorts of ways over the years, is that the developers seem to barely give attention to anything that has to do with visual improvements. The project is very active and the code is worked on daily, ho...

Re: Extruded drawtypes

To better explain why I'm supporting this feature, I put together a list of reasons for why I think it should exist, compared to doing this using 3D meshes. I posted it on the new issue, and will share it here too for further coverage: ⋅ If it's a fixed model, you need to update it every t...

Re: Post your screenshots!

If only textured skies were possible to have with dynamic sky colors and the sun / moon showing. They are unfortunately unusable in most practical scenarios, as you can't have a sane looking day / night cycle any more.

So pathfinding is finally working now? Last time I tried it, it was a complete mess and the results were a joke. This was around two years ago however.

Re: Extruded drawtypes

I also opened a new issue for this ( #5666 ) and it's been discussed there briefly. Paramat made a valid argument that this effect can be technically achieved using meshes. However I believe that's not a good way to go for the following reasons: Drawtype extrusion automatically generates the model f...

Extruded drawtypes

I wanted to bring attention to a feature that seems to have been forgotten, which I'd really like to see revived under some form. It was one of the things RealBadAngel had been working on, before the unfortunate event of his death occurred. Alongside shaders such as Bloom or Depth-of-Field, it was o...

Re: [Mod] Structures [git] [minetest_mods_structures]

Very nice, thanks for sharing! Material replacements per village type are a nice idea... possibly something I might add to my mod as well someday, though that's currently not a thing for it.
