[Mod] Interchangeable Hands [hands]

Interchangeable Hands [hands]
This mod uses the function introduced in this pull request by TeTpaAka. Hands is mostly for demostration purposes for the reference of other modders or for players to mess around with. Keep in mind that the mod does not work on Minetest 0.4.14, as the feature was not introduced until Minetest 0.4.15.

The mod registers a single chatcommand (`/sethand`) and privilege (`sethand`), allowing the player to set their own hand to any node or item. Hands also has a simple API with which two example hands are registered as listed below.

Alternate Hands
  • hands:grey
  • hands:space
The textures aren't very good, but it allows you to get a basic and functional overview of the new feature.

Chatcommand

Code: Select all

/sethand hands:grey
/sethand default:stick
The above example shows that the /sethand command works both with the hands introduced by the mod or with any other node or item already in the game. Remember to grant yourself the sethand privilege before attempting to use the chatcommand.

Ohhh!
So in theory... One can register a new node (meshnode or nodebox) and map the player skin texture to it so the player can see a hand that matches their skin?

OMG! OMG! *runs in circles

Simply, yes. In fact, I think you can, not just in theory.

A player could do /sethand default:pick_diamond and their hand would immediately have the same power as a diamond pickaxe.

Nope. It does more than just change the mesh. If it were possible I'd make it so that it only changes the mesh without the privilege and the tool capabilities if the player had the privilege.
