  • Any good way to find out if player's wielded item is a tool (and not a block)?

An alternative and probably faster:
Code: Select all
local stack = player:get_wielded_item()
local def = stack:get_definition()
if def.type == "tool" then

Re: Random tricks and tips (Minetest Game)

If you are standing at the edge of the cliff with [Shift] button pressed (in order not to fall down), do not open inventory. You will fall down. Not anymore. The new sneaking fixes (will be available on 0.4.16) make the player be always "standing" on the node, so no matter what happens yo...

Re: Post your modding questions here

Thank you orwell, but the file is in the /.minetest/textures directory (texture packs) (and it is a .png file). You can't do that. Mods (currently) run only on the server. Texture packs are on the client. Can you specify what you're actually trying to do? Anyway I have to change the secure.trusted_...

Re: select grass sides in advanced game menu?

You can use texture overrides to control how you want the grass to look.

Example to see "full" grass side:
Code: Select all
default:dirt_with_grass sides default_grass.png

Re: Post your modding questions here

A, ok, it's a little bit confusing that a rightclick callback is sometimes called on_rightclick and sometimes on_place. Doc could be more clear at this point When you interact (in this case, right click) with a node, there are two items involved: the wielded item, and the node you're pointing at. N...

Re: [Mod] Away Mod [1.0] [away]

From a quick look at the sources it looks like it may still work, but do note that it's very outdated and doesn't use capabilities we take for granted now.

You may be better looking for alternatives (unless teh kahrl wants to update :) ). A quick Google search brought up this one.

Re: Post your modding questions here

No, that should be part of the name already.

Code: Select all
local node = minetest.get_node(value) --> node.name == "default:leaves"
node.name = node.name .. "_dry" --> "default:leaves_dry"

I don't think that node exists.

Re: Post your modding questions here

Ah. If you're using stable 0.4.15, you will see your own message but other players shouldn't.

There's this commit which will be available in 0.4.16.
