If player is enforced to lock his position, I suppose you need to set speed and jump to null by calling set_physics_override({speed=0, jump=0}). Then, again call that method, only with previous arguments. All is done much easily.
And then how would I reset the physics override back to default?

Re: Need help about creating a jetpack mod

I know you said to make a pull request but I thought I would just show you it here since it's not a lot. As far as going up goes, the following code works... You would have to do more checks to only fly in specific conditions, I.E., when a player has the jetpack on and when it runs out of fuel. Here...

Re: Entity:get_yaw() is returning nil sometimes.

@LC Creations - You will need to add nil checks throughout code, especially if using minetest.after timers to make sure entity still exists before doing anything with it's values e.g. if object:get_luaentity() then -- do something -- else return false end My mob uses self.object in on_step for the ...

If creating a plugin for using stacks turns out not to be feasible, I suppose a not-so-ideal workaround that might be simpler could be to have a crafted item named "Dirt x 5", which would be crafted with 5 separate dirt nodes, and then use that as a single item. Seems a little tedious, th...

What to use instead of obj:get_entity_name()

obj:get_entity is supposed to be deprecated. So, what else am I supposed to do? It does not even work in the current version (I tested it) and I have looked at lua.api and there is nothing that does the same thing.

Re: Making crafts with big stacks more than 1

You'd need to create a larger craft table. Some mods do it. Another method would be to split the recipe into two parts, both of which would maybe need five input, and then those two results would be combined. Indeed someone needs to make a "advanced_crafting" mod. It can use a crafting ta...
