Portalgun

The gun that can shoot portals :D

The portals can teleport both players, mobs, stuff, and using velocity (which is important)
The users portals, deletes when the user leaves the game or if not used for 40sec.

The extra stuff requires mesecons

"place" to change portal mode (or "left+rightclick" to use the other)

"shift+leftclick" to close both portals (or wait becaoue them removes it self)

"leftclick" on an object to carry it, click again to release
you can craft it to a decuration block, dig to get it back

This works really well! Great job!

As a side note, I opened this issue a while back on the topic of getter and setter functions for player velocity. This is something minetest really needs.

Did you also add an addvelocity function? lf it's lagging the local player differs from the player seen on the server and if you want to do recoil setting velocity wouldn't work for adding it to the current one l assume.

Do you think you could set up a GitHub repo for this mod? Doing so would make it easier for other people to contribute to and download the mod.

you may would like to use a tool that makes you execute chatcommands if you use, drop or place it
https://github.com/HybridDog/command_tool

UjEdwin, if you attach the player to an object (which could be invisible and not pointable), you can set the velocity of this object and the player gets it too.

That (Diplazer gravity gun mode) looks pretty cool, but the YouTube video links to this forum post which is totally unrelated. Instead I think you should link to [Mod] Diplazer 15.2 (the ultimate build tool!

I am thinking about using gravity in connection with the P0rtal gun through the crafting recipes. My thinking is like this:
  • The portals are connected by a wormhole in space, and the wormhole has two ends.
  • If you've only placed one portal, then the other end of the wormhole is still inside the gun, and you could walk around with the gun like a vacuum cleaner, any entities would get sucked up and pop out of the portal that you placed.
  • In order to create the wormholes the p0rtalgun contains a "quantum singularity", kind of like a black hole.
  • Since a black hole is very dense matter, it would be made by a chain of crafting recipes like this:

Code: Select all

 rock      obsidian    rock
 obsidian    MESE    obsidian         -->  Dense Matter level 1 (DM-1)
 rock      obsidian    rock

 MESE        DM-1      MESE
 DM-1        DM-1      DM-1           -->  Dense Matter level 2 (DM-2)
 MESE        DM-1      MESE

 DM-1        DM-2      DM-1
 DM-2        DM-2      DM-2           -->  Dark Matter level 1 (Dark-1)
 DM-1        DM-2      DM-1

 DM-2       Dark-1     DM-2
 Dark-1     Dark-1    Dark-1          -->  Dark Matter level 2 (Dark-2)
 DM-2       Dark-1     DM-2

   -     MESE   O.Shard
  MESE  Dark-2     -                  -->  P0rtalgun
  MESE     -       -
except I was thinking of having even more stages, but then it would be effecitvely impossible. Even with 4 stages it would take a ton of work in survival mode to get all the materials to make one P0rtalgun, but that's kind of the point!

Anyway, these dense and dark-matter blocks could also be placed, and they would do stange things with gravity, but I'm not sure exactly what. Maybe if you are near them, the mod would do a set_physics_override({gravity=whatever}) on you (or a setacceleration({x=0, y=whatever, z=0) on other entities)

Any more complex alteration of physics that affects players is hard to do, just like with the boat, you'd have to create an entity and set_attach() the player to it.

yes, then throw the gun into that single portal

only a specific part of matter causes warping of space l think

[color=#1781B7]Hybrid Dog[/color] wrote:yes, then throw the gun into that single portal
As currently written (@UjEdwin's code), If only one portal is placed, the globalstep proc doesn't scan for objects near it, so placing one portal then throwing the gun into it has no effect. I believe that's what the original game does too (and the portals look different: they're filled with orange or blue if they don't link to another portal).
  But it would be fun (or perhaps evil) to make it do something spectacular. Suggestions? Kill the player? Make every atom in the universe explode at the speed of light? Something in between?

Good idea @Don

@Gaming Association, if you're asking @UjEdwin, you can maybe send them a PM.
