[Several new servers] student project with new mods

by ishka » Thu Jun 07, 2018 17:27

In the context of an university course we develop several new minetest mods. To showcase these we run several new servers.

This thread is to be used for discussions of all of these servers. If a some server gets a lot of feedback we will start a separate discussion thread for it.

These servers are on the same address, but on different ports.

Address: oristano.tcs.ifi.lmu.de

Server: Cities
Port: 30005

Server: Fantasy
Port: 30006

Server: Big Letters
Port: 30010

Server: Moddevel
Port: 30011

We hope you all enjoy our work and are looking forward to any feedback on any of these servers.

Dear community, during our ongoing university seminar: "Modprogramming for Minetest" we are playing around with different mapgeneration features.
For this first iteration, we were playing with random sight generation all around the map.
The goals were:
- Create some sample sights
- Place those sights when a chunk is generated for the first time with a certain probability
- Only place those sights if there is enough space on the chosen random position
- Don't place objects in the water or on trees and neither half in another object

During the work we had to solve different problems:

- Detect height of the groundlevel at certain positions for only placing the objects on the ground, not floating and not in the ground.
Solution: Use the lightlevel to find out on which height the light switches from 0 (underground) -> to 15 (overground).
- Check if there is enough space for the object to fit:
Solution: Check the groundlevel around the initial position to

Persisting problems:

- Objects aren't placed when it's night, because the light level decreases from 15 to lower. If also lower levels are accepted then objects are also placed e.g. in water where the light level is 14.
- Find out what the height and length of the loaded .mts schematics are and check the space dynamically and not a fixed 6x6 space.
- Find out what the biome features are for only placing sights in their respective environments (e.g. sandtower only in desert): The problem is that the temperature and humidity functions are depricated.


The server can be reached during the ongoing seminar and the code will be documented and released afterwards.

Address: oristano.tcs.ifi.lmu.de
Server: Moddevel
Port: 30011


We are happy for every comment on our project. Don't mind typos. Mind that the project is prototypical and no complete immersive experience.
Thanks to all

Address: oristano.tcs.ifi.lmu.de
Server: Big Letters
Port: 30011

This server has recipes to build letter blocks out of dirt blocks. The letter blocks can be combined to build big letters. The map is a small platform to easily find what other people built. It is easy to fall of the map. Fly privilege on this server works on some versions of minetest. Everyone can mine letter blocks someone else has placed.

Here is an image of some big letters:

Here are the crafting recipes for the letter-blocks:

Hey guys!

Now it's time to present the next mod! :)

Address: oristano.tcs.ifi.lmu.de
Server: Fantasy
Port: 30006

What's so special about this mod?

  • The world is full of dungeons! You can find treasures with loot in this dungeons and in future versions defeat monster there!
  • You can find two new plants in the world. Magic Mushrooms (they glow in the dark) and Healing Clover (heals you). There will follow more plants in future versions!
  • There is a new crafting type! Brewing! You can craft a pot. This pot is a new crafting machine. You can brew a lot of magic potions with special effects in there.
Don't miss watching at the screenshots and crafting recipes in the spoilers here!

Please note that our mod is still under construction. It's not finished yet, but you can play already! We would appreciate feedback from you!
