Re: [Mod] Better Nametags [better_nametags]

self.object:get_luaentity() doesn't make much sense because self is already the luaentity. Thanks! I'll fix that. Also you don't need to set the position of your nametag object on_step, use object attachment . I did, in fact try this. It resulted in a weird glitch, where the entity's nametag would ...

Re: [Mod] Universal hand light [illumination]

that depends entirely what you're looking for; I don't particularly need an API, I just wanted to be able to walk around with a torch in my hand, so this was exactly what I was looking for :) Cheers Piezo, nice mod! (I also quite enjoy your enthusiastic way of "selling" the mods, ha ha) I...

Re: [Mod] Better Nametags [better_nametags]

You can see it through nodes? Yep. Sometimes, that's a good thing. So, you attach an entity to the player object and give this entity a nametag? Why don't you set the nametag directly of the player? Literally my previous reply in this thread. You could even set alpha. You could add alpha to the nam...

Re: [Mod] Better Nametags [better_nametags]

For those of you who are wondering, I have done some experimentation with unlimited_player_transfer_distance and player_transfer_distance on my server, and found them to be very unreliable (Often failing to limit the player's nametag view distance for no clear reason). Whether or not this is a bug i...

That's... what I said.

They solved the problem of names being visible everywhere, but created the problem of names not being visible through blocks

From a glance, it seems like that mod throws the good of the default nametags (lightweight, visible through blocks, colorable) out with the bad (visible from all over the map)

I didn't really bother with the dropped item aspect, which I see you did manage to pull off pretty well.

Like setting overrides for ignoring items' light values, or emitting light for other reasons?

Re: [Mod] Better Nametags [better_nametags]

Actually you can make a nametag invisible just by setting alpha to 0. The nametag can be revealed by restoring alpha to 255. I used this technique to dynamically hide nametags on the JT2 server depending on whether players were wearing a Halloween costume. I still like the concept of this mod. Mayb...

Re: [Mod] Better Nametags [better_nametags]

What should I do at this point? Should I turn this into a "sneaking and colors mod", or just make another separate one?

But /players could technically have something like "/vanish" implimented, or even listing ranks/prefixes.
Also, who the hell is gonna know what "/status" does from a glance, honestly?

[Mod] Better Nametags [better_nametags]

Hey, you! (Yes, you! I can see your nametag from all the way across the server!) Are you, a server admin, tired of players being given essentially endless-range Player-ESP by default? Are you looking for a mod that also Hides players' names when sneaking ? Then you need the Better Nametags Mod ! htt...

Re: What is the actual meaning ObjectRef velocity?

Ah. I was confused on that, because, in one of my own projects, I have speed in "coordinate per tick" units, which, at 40 ticks a second, means 1.0 is VERY fast.

What is the actual meaning ObjectRef velocity?

Specifically, when an entity has, say, an X velocity of "1.0", how much does their position coordinate change on the X axis in one tick?

Because, clearly, from what I've seen, the player definitely isn't travelling at 10 m/s when they have a speed of 1.0
