Re: Create script to clone/update mods from Github

I maintain my own minetest subgame that's just the basic minetest game with a set of mods and some patches of my own. To keep it up-to-date, I have a python script that checkouts mods and rebase my game on the latest mods version; and everything an be configured with a simple config file. Some links...

Re: How do formspec coordinates work?

I just had quick look at the code. If I'm not mislead, the formspec is a simple layer around irrlicht ui elements that does some automatic scaling. So, the number are not fixed on an easy grid, but rather raw elements sizes and positions as it is defined in the gui toolkit. Maybe lack of documentati...

Re: [Mod] Crops [Crops] - (Farming|Food|Cooking)

Just an idea (it will maybe be too easy): add a generic "vegetation" node that spawns quite rarely and looks like grass with some flowers. Let the user dig those and collect generic "vegetation" seeds. Then the player should plant those seeds in wet soil and in dense patches. And...

Re: Default file format for screenshots

Just do a simple test: save a minetest screenshot as a jpg file with quality set to 100%; open it in your favorite image editor alongside the png version. Put the two images in different layers and do a difference between the two. After that, just boost a little bit the brightness to see something. ...

Re: Default file format for screenshots

If you want some background, jpeg is a lossy format; it means that to achieve better compression, it removes some information from your image, based on the fact that human eye does not react to every colors in the same way. That kind of compression can create "artifacts" in the image, that...

Re: Loading media takes forever

I guess if it works on lan, but not outside lan, there is probably some filtering issue; firewall or router.

Are you using remote media server or only minetest listening on the default 30000 port ?

Re: How to disable lava and water source?

Yes, that's exactly what I do (In fact, I wrote some scripts that does this for me). The trick is: when a new version of minetest_game is out, create a diff between the old version and your subgame. Then, apply that diff to the new minetest_game, and you have your new game version. Do not try to cre...

Yes you can do that; just copy /usr/share/games/minetest/games/minetest_game to your own folder (like .minetest/games/manglefox). Then, in that folder, locate the game.conf file and change the name to whatever you want. You can also change the menu/header.png and menu/icon.png files. Those are used ...

If your server is based on minetest_game, there should be a bucket folder in the games/minetest_game/mods/ folder. This should remove buckets for everyone. A more friendly way to do it is to avoid people to create buckets (but let you and permitted users to get one via creative inventory or /giveme ...

Re: help Server wont start

EnvArgsEnd is a classic error when a server crashes.

Just removing the env_meta.txt file in your world's folder will solve the issue.
This file just contains the time of day (and game time), and it will be recreated on next start.
