[Mod] Hard Trees [hardtrees]

by octacian » Post

Hard Trees [hardtrees]

License: MIT (see LICENSE)

hardtrees is a mod with a very simple concept. Trees are made harder, meaning you cannot punch them with your fists. Instead, you must find rocks on cobble, stone, mossy cobble, or sandstone, and make the appropriate rock tool, in this case, an axe. However, to make an axe you must have sticks, for which there are two methods to optain. When leaves are broken then have a 1 out of 13 chance to drop not only the broken node, but also a stick. Once every day, sticks also drop from trees to the group. The mod uses overrides to make trees unbreakable by hand, and also modifies leaves so that they drop the needed items. Leaves are also modified to act as ladders, so you can climb through the tops of trees.

Mod Support
hardtrees supports all trees within the moretrees and default mod as of July 7th, 2016. To add support for more trees, use the code below modified to fit the new tree and save it in hardtrees/override.lua.

Code: Select all

-- override tree node
hardtrees.override.tree("modname:treename")
-- override leaves
hardtrees.override.leaf("modname:leavesname", "modname:saplingname")
treename is the name of the tree node so that hardtrees can override it to not be `oddly_breakable_by_hand`. The leavesname is the name of the leaves node which is modified to drop sticks. saplingname is required to allow the leaves to drop both sticks and saplings.

Configuration

Within the mod directory, is conf.txt within which you can specify many of the settings used within this mod. You can also create world specific configuration files by placing another conf.txt file within the world directory. Remember, you do not have to specify all settings in either configuration file, however, only those that you would like to change from the default.

Installation

Download a ZIP of the mod from Github and unzip it, or clone the repository from the command line. Then, the resulting directory in the mods directory of your local Minetest installation. On Linux this is usually ~/.minetest/mods. You do not have to ensure that the installed mod directory is named hardtrees unless it is your personal preference to do so.

You can also install this mod in the worldmods folder inside any world directory to use it only within one world.

I did something similar in a subgame I am making. It makes more sense!

How do you handle tree nodes placed by the player? Sometimes digged trees are used as building material. It would be very annoying if they had to be digged again the same way as the original tree had to be cut.

As mentioned in the first post, I change the group to not be oddly_breakable_by_hand. This means after they are places you still have to use an axe. I hadn't thought about doing it any different. Would it really be that bad? If so, I will probably just register a new set of nodes with the "unbreaking" property that when placed use the breakable tree nodes. (This could be configured via the conf.txt file also.)

If I'm building with wood in a normal game I use an axe to clear mistakes anyway, because breaking wood or tree by hand is slow already. If the player has obtained tree in this mod then they should have access to an axe.

Is this mod still available somewhere?

Right now, no, it isn't. I can't seem to convert my old git repositories from my old personal server, so it's looking as though I'll have to rewrite this from scratch. I hope to do that in a few days though, so will post when it is available again.

Thank you, this mod is a must have for a survival game.

I apologize to all who were interested in this mod for the delay in getting it back up. However, I am happy to say that I did find a copy of the original source. With this in mind, I will get this mod back up within the next week, along with some improvements to the original code in hopes of making it compatible with as many mods as possible with as little code as possible.

That is great news! I love the concept behind this mod!

Should it really be 1/13 chance because wouldn't you be able to find a branch to break? It doesn't really matter so much, just a thought.

Thanks for all of your hard work, I absolutely love your mods!

Update!

This mod is now available once again, as I've pushed the old code onto Github. I haven't really made any changes to the code yet, besides updating some meta-related files (e.g. license year). One notable thing is that I have switched this mod to a rolling release, meaning that there is no longer any versioning or particular release cycle. Why? Well, not only is this mod small, but there isn't much more that can be done with it anyways.

I may do a little more work on this yet to clean up the code further and possibly to expand support, but for now, it supports everything that it did before.
