I'm on Arch (ok, Artix) with 5.0.1.
With 'register_door', there were no doors at all :-(

Xanadu server is using Xubuntu 18.04 with Minetest 5.0.1 and Ethereal with all it's new wooden fences and gates work ok... Please make sure you aren't using minetest_game and not a custom game folder.

Thank you again very much for your creativity and the active maintenance to this mod.

The sakura tree and the sakura wood door are very nice ideas indeed. Please consider my Pull request #10 Protected Sakura Wood Door introduced to your protector redo mod as an addition.

Thank you very much for the advice.

However, without questioning your competence, we at home have a local dedicated MT 5.0.1 server running on macOS 10.12.6 and until today are not aware of such issues. We enjoy a LAN distributed MT game with certainly 'minetest_game' and the following mods on several clients.

  • bakedclay
  • bees
  • boats
  • bonemeal
  • carts
  • craftguide
  • ethereal
  • farming
  • hud_hunger
  • intllib-20180811
  • lucky_block
  • minetest-3d_armor-version-0.4.13
  • mob_horse
  • mobs_animal
  • mobs_monster
  • mobs_redo
  • moreores
  • pie
  • protector
  • signs_lib
  • toolranks

Most are picked from the TenPlus1 mod shop at NotABug for avoiding incomaptibility issues.

Hello TenPlus1!
In Xanadu there are all those pretty mushrooms, Chanterelle, powderpuff, parasol...
They are referenced as decorations in the ethereal mod, but they aren't part of ethereal.
Are those Xanadu exclusives, or are they in an open repository somewhere?

Thanks!

Hi Kilarin, yeah those are Xanadu exclusive, I had to ask permission from the PlantsMegaPack authors on Minecraft to use them on server.

Ah! That explains why I couldn't find them. Guess I need to go out and make some mushrooms of my own! :)

Thanks!

Maybe mapgen issue in ethereal?

Minetest 5.1.0, 5.0.1 and 0.4.17.1

Mapgen v7 and valleys

seed 15219792642935207317, minetest game, ethereal release = 1684

Same area has a large cave in v7 and valleys mapgen, but only looks strange when ethereal is enabled (no other mods involved but default)

Position ingame 1919,31,-607 looks like this:

I can provide more pictures and information, if neccessary, but I can reproduce on all tested versions and mapgens. The position has the same issues on those, although it looks a little different on valleys compared to v7.

What should I do?

I take this picture as being ok, that is such shallow caves are in fact a feature of Ethereal and it's not a bug.

If you take a look at the area ingame or in the screenshot at the floating structures of desert_stone on the right, maybe this is no shallow cave and probably a bug :D

Or maybe I should have provided more screenshots documenting the area:

Look at the totally flat-cut area at 1887,4 -518:

Or another, better view of floating rocks at 1923,22,-645:

Or a whole "floating" mountaintop at 2017,3,-736

If that is intended, then ok, ethereal is meant to bring up bizarre landscape. But in my understanding, ethereal provides strange, but not too unrealistic biomes?

Still, I believe this is a bug.

If not, is there a way to disable those shallow caves?

Updated to version 1.27

- Added Etherium Ore and Dust
- Added sparse dry grass/shrub to caves biome where new ore found

Bastrabun - Surprisingly the cave biome is meant to be like that :) floating desertstone with stone underneath to make things look eery. I've added the above ore which has floating properties that can hold the cavern tops up and will add uses for it later.

Looks like a certain mod under my custody will need a compatibility update soon... :3

@TenPlus1: on a scale from 0 to 10, where 0 is "are you nuts?" and 10 is "any clueless noob who can read in english can handle it", how much would you advise someone who never used a git repo nor anything like that to give notabug.org a try? And are they OK with a CC0 distribution derived from a WTFPL project?

@Bastrabun: I actualy like those floating caves. I even tried to build a house in one of those caves once. It resulted in a few chests full of compressed stone and a backdoor to a cave system full of ores. And that flat-ish top is great for tree/weeds/flowers farming (if you get your hands on some cystals and mese, that is)

notabug.org is very simple and fast, works well with git, can easily transfer github projects over and handle any license you wanna add to your files :) It also doesn't bother you with two-facter authentication which I find annoying in github. As for noob usage, the site gives you commands to enter to create a git page but you will need a local git gui client on your pc to be able to push things without using the terminal all the time.

Thanks! I'll give it a try soon :)

Where can I find the torch code that damages players when they stand on torches?

I thought it was part of Ethereal but I have been looking in the source and I cannot find it.

Yeah that was it Nathan. I didn't expect that. Thanks, you saved me a lot of time searching around for that. I made these changes to enable it regardless of ethereal being present or not.

Did you add some other armor that protects against fire? I think the only reason that check is there is because the only armor that protects against fire is Crystal, and that's only available if you have Ethereal.

No I haven't added any armor that protects against fire. My main motivation for this was to have the torches burn players if they stand on top of them.
I removed Ethereal recently to focus on supporting the default biomes first then I will look into expanding my scope and support for the biomes in Ethereal again.
With Ethereal, for whatever reason, it seems to override the default biomes a bit too aggressively for me. I'd like to figure out how to tone it down a bit, i know its random based off the seed but in several worlds all I've seen is ethereal biomes when new areas are generated. I think I'll maybe have to find some time to play around with this more one day.

Hey TenPlus1,

Perhaps adding fire:permanent_flame to the real_torch and ethereal abm's that melt ice and snow would be a nice addition? I added it to my downstream abm that was based on the one in ethereal.

for now it's a magical dust that keeps the red cave biomes floating in the air, although suggestions are welcome for additional uses :)
