I'm using this mod to create schematics for a mod that adds items which you can use to instantly build saved structures (Right-click the ground with the item and it spawns the building). Right now I have to save the schematic, pause Minetest, and drag the schematic file into my mod.Wuzzy wrote:Note that anything outside the world directory is taboo, this is a restriction dictated by Minetest's mod security system.
And I don't plan to violate that, I don't want my mod to be able to write on any directory.
The only leeway I might have is changing the directory inside the world directory, but this doesn't seem too helpful.
Maybe this should first be discussed with Minetest developers, the mod security system only allows us to write into a very few specific locations.
Please tell me your specific use case for this feature, and how you would use it. Maybe I'll understand your motivation then.
It won't make a very large difference if you did allow me to just set the file destination to my mod. But it would be useful. My current method works
