Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.66.2]

I think MineClone 2 is pretty seriously incomplete to be abandoned (you can't even "beat" the game, run a village, or enchant items, which are like the only 3 basic endgame goals Minecraft even has!) As for mobs, I don't really see the point of it? Most of Minecraft's mobs are rather generic fantas...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.66.2]

Thanks for your response. I can understand the game will probably not be maintained forever... except maybe if another team wishes to pick it back up afterward? This is one of the fewer games for Minetest with a solid and consistent basis, it seems like a loss if it too will stop being developed in ...

Re: Implementing shadows and light culling in the existing lightmap compilator

So I dug a bit deeper into this: Using the minetest.conf setting "ambient_occlusion_gamma = 0.5" I can better see what the existing ambient occlusion system does. It seems to do about HALF of what I was thinking: Per-vertice directional shadowing exists to some extent, but it only goes one node deep...

Implementing shadows and light culling in the existing lightmap compilator

I had an idea I wanted to bring up. I may even attempt implementing it myself if I can, but would first like confirmation from the developers that it's considered an acceptable approach so I don't work for nothing. So... lights and shadows. Proper lighting is a feature that's been long desired by ma...

Re: [Mod] Mobs Redo [1.52] [mobs]

It's so nice to see a mob mod that's simple, offers just the right features, and is actively still in development. Gave it a try in the MineClone game and I love the functionality! Wanted to ask one question for the time being... which if false you can take as a feature request if you'd like. Do mob...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.66.1]

After giving this a try, I have to say it's currently the only standalone game that offers a full set of features and playability for Minetest without feeling broken or incomplete. Everything else is either very consistent but too boring and simplistic, either complex but to the point of being overl...

Re: [Game] Repixture [1.3.0]

Gave this game a try last night. I really like the base idea of it, looks like a promising game with potential! Latest Git seems pretty simplistic though... it would be nice to see more features and items and complexity added over time.

Re: emissive texture overlay conundrum

That's an adorable model! It will be quite interesting to see how that goes. As far as emissive textures are concerned, I don't know if the ability exists in the engine. You can overlay textures with some method, I remember it was something like "1.png^2.png^..." thought I may be wrong... in any cas...

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

I made those models many years ago. I remember it was pretty simple though: A simplistic rig with a small animation set, achieving something similar to the Minecraft player model. Note that they're meant to support Minecraft skins as well.

I'll have to look at the changes someday when I have time for this as well. It's okay that you removed some things, though I might not approve a PR that removes core functionality in my version. None the less it's perfectly fine to fork this and see where that goes for now!

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 a very long delay, like 10...

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

Minetest needs better graphics. Minecraft has shadows . SHADOWS. 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

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...
