[Mod] Real Torch [0.8] [real_torch]

by TenPlus1 » Post

Ever wanted Minetest survival to be that little bit harder, well now it can be by making torches burn out after a certain amount of time, needing the player to re-light them to supply prescious light :) Here's what this mod adds to the game:
  • Torches burn out after 8-10 minutes (configurable)
  • You can re-light a torch by punching with coal powder, gunpowder or flint & steel
  • Coal Powder (10 off) is crafted by placing 2x coal lumps into the crafting grid
  • Torches glow slightly in the dark so they can be seen and relit
  • Water next to a torch will make it drop as an un-lit torch
  • Add an un-lit torch and coal powder on top to craft back into a lit torch

azekill: floodable nodes do not drop them as items, it only gets replaced so the abm is required to do this properly in the mod.

Kilarin: maybe, gotta ask Shinji :)

I was thinking of trying to turn this into a campfire that you feed sticks to every once in a while or it goes out :)

While I think this would be fascinating on a new map, its going to be a bit of a pain when every place that people mapped out with torches, expecting them to last, suddenly go dark.
Any chance you could convert the old existing torches into glowstone or something like? :)

2 options:

1: get angry
2: craft glowlights - 1 torch +1 glass = 4 glowlights :P (this recipe is OP)

Might be tough to relight a torch in the dark?

maybe give unlit torches light = 2
so you can still see it in the dark?

tenplus i love the added realism to this torch. i've never liked the idea of torches that last forever. with your new torch mod we can continue on with the principle of light that eventually runs out. For example, how about lanterns that last longer than torches. Now there is incentive to craft 'better' light sources.

Also, would you consider combining your torch behavior with Sofar's upgraded 3D torch? viewtopic.php?f=9&t=14359

i'm currently using sofar's 3d torch and would miss those features if I began to use your torch 2.0.

Since you get diamond armor, you dont really need light to dig.

Would it be possible to make the burnout optional as a global setting, for use of the flooded torch feature only?

+1 It would be nice to have the wield torch witch ligntening in dark and unlit after few time

Edit 2017/01/20 = and is it a bug or it's normal that the light remains after the torch lit ?
Edit = i change in the 3d.lua the light_source by 3 it done the job, but is it correct ?

I like the idea of real torches. But then we need a replacement for permanent light. I would suggest a mese torch that works like a normal torch, but they are brighter. And that gives a good reason for digging

I'm pondering on a version of this mod that removes coal dust and make use of the flint and steel tool for relighting.

Oh yes, using gunpowder on a lit torch causes a bit of a spark that hurts player :)

... updated unlit torches so they glow slightly in the dark, so you can see and re-light.
