[Mod] Dinosaurs in Minetest! [1.0] [prehistoric_life]

by Christian9 » Post

Adds a variety of Dinosaurs. All Dinosaurs are passive as babies but carnivores become aggressive has adults if not tamed. To tame a carnivore you must feed it raw meat or raw chicken, to tame a herbivore you must feed it wheat or tree leaves. Triceratops and Mammoths can be ridden with a saddle. All Dinosaurs will protect their owners when tamed.

To-do:
-Death and Attack animations
-Ferns
-Meta Seqouia Trees
-Re-Models

Code:GNU General Public 3.0
Sounds & Textures:GNU General Public 3.0
Depends:default, mobs_redo

A non-fatal error occured:
ERROR[Main]: generateImage(): Could not load image "prehistoric_life_blood.png" while building texture; Creating a dummy image
Though wild dinosaurs do not spawn in the world yet, they do attack the player. However, does sunlight hurt them?

No. Working on the error and working Triceratops in. Feeding a dinosaur raw meat makes it more tame and it will no longer attack the player.

New Poll! In the original mod I was going to do apatosaurus which I decided not to do because it would take too long to Model, UV layout, Texture, Animate and Code so I did Pachycephalosaurus instead, So for the 8th and final dinosaur what should I do?

That was just a canceled project, only a few differences such has the API, Models, Textures and name. This one has the same basic concept of cloning Prehistoric Plants and Animals but in a much lighter version. Right now I have all but one Dinosaur finished and the mod is at 4.3 MBs, the original at this point was at 86 MBs.

In dna_extractor.lua on line 288, you have:

Code: Select all

minetest.register_craftitem("prehistoric_life:tissue", {
That should be:

Code: Select all

minetest.register_craftitem("prehistoric_life:soft_tissue", {
:) I had to change this in order to get the soft_tissue working correctly. After that, though, everything seems to be working well so far. Thanks for making this mod!

I wanted to encourage you guys with some feedback. I have been playing the game with this mod in 1st and 2nd grade classes and they LOVE the dinosaurs! I don't know if you realized this but they work with 'catchballs' (catchball mod) so I have had students chasing and capturing dinosaurs. Thrilling! Thank you!

Added a pull request to fix the blood issue. It looks like we are missing the blood image, so the game is creating a dummy image for it instead. This image is under the MIT license, copyrighted by TenPlus1.

So in the meanwhile can't a person simply create a blood graphic to be inserted into the textures folder? I play the game with elementary students and I always replace the blood graphics with little tiny lightning bolts. Serves as a reminder that we're just playing a game, lol.

You could, just as long as the name is right. Being that the last time this was worked on was 6 months ago, I don't know when (or if) the pull request will be merged with the master branch.

Actually, I went back in and looked at what happens when I use the mod. The dinos ARE using my lightning texture, though I never set that up. Its defaulting to it automatically, so I never noticed any 'missing blood' texture. Is blood working for other mobs?

It looks like you removed some dinosaurs. Will you ever bring them back in?

Before I was going by Formations when adding dinosaurs, I started by adding the most common dinosaurs from Hell Creek and did the same for Flaming Cliffs and the Kem Kem Beds. At some point I decided to start adding more popular dinosaurs instead of what I was doing before, so really all that's missing are re-skinned dinosaurs that took up a lot of space for no real gain. A few dinosaurs will eventually be brought back like Spinosaurus and Dakotaraptor but lots of the other ones are gone for good. For now most of the updates will be centered around better models, plants, and animal behavior so don't expect to see new animals for a while.
