I still have plans for it, but no idea when I might get back to them. Feel free to fork, it might be interesting to see how a different version goes! I might continue development on the main one someday however.

How did I never know about that? Fantastic work! Wasn't expecting that to be doable with the current lighting system.

I so wish this could be added to default Minetest. But can predict that for one reason or another, it probably never will be.

Re: Large schematics are spawned incompletely

A few clarifications I should add: ⋅  The schematics I'm spawning are always mts files. They are not stored as Lua tables. ⋅  In my own test, when moving the minetest.place_schematic_on_vmanip function to minetest.after, the problem still persists. This is the case even if I use ...

Please. Shadows make things look far better. :)


Many of us have been wanting realtime lighting for a long time. Sadly, after RealBadAngel suddenly left this world, no one else joined the project who could take care of that aspect.

Re: Large schematics are spawned incompletely

Has there been any progress on this issue recently? I'm concerned about my Structures mod and the plans I made for it, which rely on the hope that this breaking problem can be solved. I still suspect it must have something to do with the engine "choking" on large amounts of data and forget...

Re: Large schematics are spawned incompletely

Confirming that num_emerge_threads = 1 in minetest.conf does not seem to affect the problem, it still occurs the same way.

Re: Large schematics are spawned incompletely

FWIW, I didn't mean that drawing beyond the bounds of the chunk might cause it, I meant that being limited to within the bounds of the on_generate chunk may cause it if you don't also successfully spawn the structure in every other chunk that the structure touches. Are the missing parts aligned wit...

Re: Large schematics are spawned incompletely

I should clarify that I'm already using the vmanip to spawn structures with on_generate. I understand this function should now only attempt to spawn a piece of schematic that intersects the chunk in cause. So this shouldn't be a case of chunk overflow normally, since I use the vm provided by the gen...

Re: [Mod] 3D Furniture [1.0] [3dforniture]

As promised, here are the redesigned appliances. I haven't committed them to Git just yet, but once I do they will be part of the new default city for my Structures mod. https://i.imgur.com/HemlhbI.png https://i.imgur.com/9zHEpMz.png https://i.imgur.com/adUeeuF.png https://i.imgur.com/X2XdhRe.png

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

Forgot to mention that I've also redesigned the import / export node. The node is now constant, no more connecting / disconnecting when placing the markers... this fixes some annoyances and should also improve performance. Node replacements can also be specified directly in the I/O formspec. I've al...

I've began working on new structures to replace the old town early this year, shortly after fixing up the code and adding some crucial performance improvements. Here are a few images showing some of the new roads. Buildings are still a work in progress and will require new code fixes. Multiple road ...

7 years after this mod was born and died, it seems it might actually help me out.

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.

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...

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 ...

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

Yes: I remember a problem of my mod was that you have to disable player.lua manually.
