Re: Virtual Reality

Minecraft can do a binocular hud and has 3D sounds, and I 'kind-of' got it working with a Google Cardboard, but it was a horrible hack. I'm not aware of anyone linking it with a Vive.

Re: ¿Converter worlds?

Some years ago I hacked up a mod which will import a 3d mesh after its been voxelized by binvox (ie one extra tool between blender and minetest), but it would be pretty easy to create a python script to export direct from blender if you really wanted and would give you far more flexibility with unli...

Re: Convert whole Minecraft maps

I haven't been playing or coding minetest for some time, but was looking at the converter out of curiosity. I presume you found the mcblocks mod which means you don't need many of the minetest mods... However from other posts I think you really want the extra function of minetest blocks, so perhaps ...

Re: [Mod] More Trees! [20140807] [moretrees]

Is there a way to make the trees grow quickly when planted. I tried to create a wood by planting saplings, but when I came back something (cavegen ??) had chopped holes in the trees. Also it's difficult to know how closely to plant them until they've grown, and it's a pain to wait overnight for the ...

Re: [Mod] growing trees [0.0.9] [growing_trees]

Cool, with a quick test it seems that it's not freezing like it used to. However while watching them, I noticed the leaf nodes appear and disappear every few seconds, so the tree looks a bit like christmas lights blinking. Is there any way to change this so they only appear and disappear slowly like...

Re: [Mod] MapIt [1.2] [mapit] – another mapping mod

Thanks Andre,
I've updated the repo, and added the numpy link to the 1st post.
What changes did you make for Pillow? - the minetestmapper script still seems to ref PIL.

Depends/dependencies for mods feature request

I'm just wondering if it would be possible to improve the dependency specification for MT. Currently if you download a mod there is no way of knowing which modpack it refers to as a dependency. 1. It would be really helpful if the file could optionally include a link to the repo and/or the forum pos...

Re: Clouds too low (unrealistic)

Really all I would like is to have 1. clouds not displayed inside (presumably using the light level would be a quick hack for this, although might not work at night - perhaps this could be an option for world.mt, 2. clouds not only in a little square in the sky when they are high - it should be easy...

SERIOUS ERROR: Invalid block data in database

I'm getting a critical error in a couple of worlds. Never seen it before. Tried loading from backup and it worked once, then started doing it again. It's a critical error and causes MT to drop back to the menu. I recently updated to 0.4.12 so presumably it's a fault with this build. Just wondering w...

Re: binocular HUD? (for £2.50 Google Cardboard/oculus rift/D

Thanks to kahri for pointing it out, but turns out Minetest can already render in various 3D styles including side-by-side. Just a matter of editing minetest.conf https://github.com/minetest/minetest/blob/master/minetest.conf.example #3d_mode options are:- # "none" = no 3d output. # "...

Re: binocular HUD? (for £2.50 Google Cardboard/oculus rift/D

This view is the minimum that would be required from minetest. Everything else to achieve the VR can be done with other software (although I'm sure lag would be signifianctly decreased if minetest could monitor a port and respond directly to the google cardboard api). https://dl.dropboxusercontent.c...

Re: binocular HUD? (for £2.50 Google Cardboard/oculus rift/D

Just thinking about the controls further. Instead of an extra phone, it would probably be more intuitive to use head gestures: eg L ear on shoulder = dig/punch, R ear = place/use You could also put a visual control on the ground or in the sky which had Inventory, Drop, Jump/Climb, Sneak/Duck which y...

Most virtual reality SDKs happen to be proprietary. Why does that matter?

Re: My Train Mod

The easiest option would be make the train itself a mobile anchor and it could forceload a couple of nodes around it and un-forceload them when it left. If a player causes loading of radius 32 nodes that's between 48 and 216 mapblocks. A train moves more, but even so should be a lot less load than q...
