Re: [Server] LinuxWorks Next Generation (Lots of trains)

Server will be down on 2018-09-05 from 10:40 to 12:40 UTC, due to the hosting provider having to reboot the vm host.
THE END IS AT HAND

Re: [Server] LinuxWorks Next Generation (Lots of trains)

It appears the server is acting up again. The last thing I saw was an error message from Lua ATC at -747,6,-377 and a postgresql shutting down due to admin command... Now the server looks up, but it's impossible to log in.

[mod] Maple tree [maple]

While on Hometown, I noticed a nice tree, namely maple. I couldn't find the mod elsewhere and asked ExeterDad about it — turned out, the mod was his own, used on Hometown exclusively. I asked for the mod, and he shared the source. The tree is based on the default tree, but is somewhat taller and has...

Re: [mod] Superimposed Window Frames [si_frames]

You could go for wallmounted. Most of the facedir directions would be indistinguishable due to symmetry anyway. In effect there are only four (or perhaps even only two) ways the node can be placed: north-south and east-west. With that, there'd be room for more color than would be convenient. (1) Yo...

Re: [mod] Superimposed Window Frames [si_frames]

I think that's pushing it too far. Like frames out of mushroom spores. Or sand. I want to add baked clay though. Because it looks generic enough for a colored frame. A white wooden frame plus a white one with another texture (baked clay or whatever works best) in combination with hardware coloring ...

Re: [mod] Superimposed Window Frames [si_frames]

Very interesting, ive been looking for something like this! Does it automatically cover any wood node from mods? Also what about window frames made from trees? No, you need to add the node names and their parent mod names into a list. I added only some wood types so far. Every name produces 4 regis...

[mod] Superimposed Window Frames [si_frames]

A collection of frames you can put over existing xpanes and similar glass types to add a wooden frame for a window. I tried it with stained glass, for example. For obsidian panes it obviously makes no difference, because it's completely transparent in the middle. The mod uses shifted 3d models, so t...

Re: [Mod] Mobs Redo [1.42] [mobs]

Yes, the Microsoft acquisition of Github DOES hurt open source projects such as Minetest, but up until now only because of self-mutilation by scattering repos all across the web. That's their endgame. Having to get N different accounts for various git-whatevers (gitlab, bitbucket, notabug, you-name...

Place and orient wallmounted node by a tool

Re: Emigrate from Github?

I’d favor #3: ”Mesehub”, git.minetest.net, for the sake of keeping the community together. Running a self-hosted Gitlab instance (or any other git interface, provided that it itself is free software — unlike github) would seem to be the most optimal solution: not depending on 3rd party, and keeping...

Re: [Server] Linuxworks Next Generation (Lots of trains)

How much maintenance does it require compared to tube networks? If you need to move thousands of blocks of the same material, it works. I use a train to move cobble away from the town center to recycle. If you want to move an assortment of miscellanea, probably not. Also I'm not sure loading/unload...

As I said earlier, there is no reason to engage in monetary transactions past a certain wealth level. Riches don't open new possibilities, they just allow to buy more of the same old basic stuff.
