[Mod] compost [git][compost]

by cd2 » Post

Compost

With this mod, you are able to compost grass, leaves, flowers...
To compost plants you need a barrel. Punch it while you are wielding the plant and wait.
After some minutes, you can punch it again and you will get compost.
You can craft garden soil out of 2 compost blocks.

Hi,

Very original idea, a little ecology in MT, well thought. ; )

this would be good for skyblock and dirtless mapgen servers, give sapling and 1 dirt in give_initial_stuff and eventually you can terraform server back to normal

This is really cool! I can finally become the number 1 dirt manufacturer.

I have some suggestions for improvements:

- Make the barrel craftable from group:wood instead of just default:wood
- Have the barrels accept more types of leaves and other organic material. Currently default:acacia_leaves and default:aspen_leaves can't be used. Being able to compost food would also be nice. There's also a lot of mods that add more tree leaves and other compostable stuff (like More Trees and Farming Redo) and it would be nice to have your mod support those too.
- Require more than one item to fill up the barrel. Right now one item makes one whole block of dirt. This doesn't make much sense since leaves are the kind of material that would compress very well and I think you could fit at least 3 leaf blocks into a barrel. This is even more true for flowers.

1. I think the barrel was be craftable from group:wood, you would be able to craft it from slabs or stairs...
2. maybe I will add support for groups - so it would support many different mods. Composting of food is a great idea :D I will add that.
3. Good idea, I will add that.

Finally! Some way of recycling organic material. I'm sure it'll look very decorative in gardens and be useful there. However, getting dirt is only of limited use - most worlds contain so much of it already. Fertilizer that speeds up plant (or tree!) growth might be quite welcome in those worlds which have already lots of dirt.
A list of my mods can be found here.

I think I will change the item you get to a new item named compost. You will be able to craft 1 garden soil out of 2 compost.

I added garden soil. If you use garden soil you dont need water to build a farm:

It might be a good idea to add an ABM (or something) to garden soil that runs every so often, and makes the plant on top (if present) grow a bit, in addition to what the plant already does.

Please remember, that an extra abm will cause extra lag. Also remember the different plants/farming mods with their different growing functions. I suggest to make this function optional.

Great mod.
But I think it's a little easy. The garden soil is very good (no need for hoe, and doesn't need water) but it's too cheap. Also, you can make compost too fast.
Suggestions:
- Make harder (more expensive) to craft garden soil (more compost, maybe a dirt block in the recipe?)
- Plant changing to compost should be slower
Additionally a plantlife modpack support would be great.

Instead of registering items you might want to consider registering groups instead. That's what l did in mymulch.
Many of my mods are now a part of Minetest-mods. A place where you know they are maintained!

1. I will change that
2. I know that the compost is very fast, I will make it slower - It is very fast, bc I still test some things :)

Here's my variation of the compost bin.

Changes:
  • ABM removed. Composting progress is controlled by timer (+10% every 30 seconds).
  • Two node variants instead of four. Now it's either empty, or full.
  • Crafting recipe changed. Now any wood would do. The bottom is still plain "slab_wood" only (because there's no "slab" group).
  • Composting output simplified. Now it's just "default:dirt".
  • Composting inputs changed. Now anything from "group:leaves" and "group:flora" (flowers and grasses) is compostable. Food not compostable for aesthetic reasons.
  • Composting is more expensive. Now it takes 8 inputs to create one output.
  • Composting takes more time. Now it's 5 minutes to create one block of output.
  • Formspec added. Right-clicking a compost opens a menu: eight slots for organic inputs and one slot for soil.
  • Punching mechanics changed. If you wield something compostable and there's room in the bin, punching the bin will move it inside. If there's compost inside and your hand is bare, punching the bin will move the compost from the bin into your hand. Two actions can be combined: punch with a compostable and get dirt instead.
  • Infotext added. Now you can see composting progress by pointing at the bin.
