Re: User-preference based landscape generation + data collec

So, about the "generating maps from user behaviour" part: if I'm stuck in a valley with no way out (+2 height difference on all sides, no tools and only nodes made from a material which can not be dug by hand) and I go on a vacation (irl) for a month and accidentally leave the computer running while...

Re: [question] items and naming conventions

What I would like to do is use a crafting material from another mod and supply a replacement if that mod is not installed, so players can still create the recipe.

But, if [someothermod] is not installed, ':someothermod:someitem' does not exist and thus there's no way to craft?

[question] items and naming conventions

So, after updating from 4.?.? to 5.0.1, I'm having a problem with naming conventions with my mod. I would like to depend on some item from another mod, but also provide a replacement in case that mod is not installed (e.g. only have an optional dependency on that mod). What I'm currently doing is: I...

Re: [Game] MineClone 2 [0.53.2]

Indeed, there is a "mobs can change blocks" setting for mineclone2, which is probably the non-technical name for 'mobs_griefing'.

The thing about the spawn rate is good to know too, especially that it counterintuitively spawns less stuff with a higher number.

Thank you.

Re: Let's talk about combat

Imho there's not a lot of feedback during combat, e.g. many mobs lack attack animations and injury states. Just moving the mob a little closer before triggering the attack/damage would go a long way in this regard. Without a healthbar, hp number or floating damage text on/near mobs, it's hard to tel...

Re: Rotation of place_schematics

I know that rotation is only about +Y, but around which point of the schematic?

e.g. if I have a schematic which looks like this from above (let X = default:dirt or something):
1XXXXXX
XXX2XXX
XXXXXX3

What would the schematic look like when placed with a rotation of "0", "90", "180", 270"?

Since [technic_game] is not ready yet, so my vote goes to [tutorial].

Every game needs a good tutorial and [tutorial] is a lot better than what some AAA titles offer for introducing players to game mechanics.
