Hi Joe7575!

I've created another pull request on Github. I put short description in commit message, this small change affects how Fermenter picks up plant leaves for processing. Instead of trying to get 2 at once (which apparently is done from the same stack only), it takes them one by one. 'for' loop for 2 items may seem excessive, but IMHO is more flexible. I've tested it, seems to work as expected.

Cheers!
Micu

Thanks, I've merged your pull request and added a Teleporter channel bugfix in addition.

Coming soon:

Machines break and need to be repaired!

Image

Machines will break after a while and need a repair kit to work normally again.
This should help to keep the industrial plants smaller, the player more busy and the hole game more sophisticated.

In addition a Forceload Block will be added, which will allow to separate industrial areas from cities/living areas.

TechPack v2 is ready for testing
+ Spoiler
The main new features are:
  • Almost all machines break after a certain amount of time (switch into the state 'defect') and have to be repaired (configurable).
  • A Repair Kit is available to repair defect machines.
  • A Forceload block (16x16x16) is added which keeps the corresponding area loaded and the machines operational as far as the player is logged in (number is configurable).
  • The Quarry now uses LVM techniques to go down up to 100 meter
  • Ladders, stairways, and bridges added (tubelib_stairway) for the machines
  • many improvements
Give it a try, your feedback is highly appreciated!

Thank you joe7575, that's a really good job!
Nobody likes when stuff gets broken ;-) but this is an opportunity to put even more computers (like SaferLua controllers) to use. Personally I run even simplest machines with these to get notified when job is done or something is wrong. Now just to enable defect monitoring and produce a pile of repair kits :-)

Cheers!

TechPack includes forceloading blocks.

The Forceload Block keeps the corresponding area loaded and the machines operational as far as the player is logged in. If the player leaves the game, all areas will be unloaded.

The maximum number of Forceload Blocks per player is configurable (default 12).

The loaded area per block is a cube with 16 m side length (according to a Minetest block). Punching the block makes the area visible and punching again invisible.

TechPack now has Warehouse Boxes

Image

Warehouse Boxes organize your warehouse/stock. This mod contains 3 boxes with different storage capacities:
- A steel box with 8 x 400 items
- A copper box with 8 x 1200 items
- A gold box with 8 x 3600 items

Each box has 8 filter slots to configure the Warehouse Box. Each column can be configured individually.
This boxes are huge chests with sorting and pushing features.
Configured items are stored in the chest. Unconfigured items are passed through.

Controller Terminals

Image

These Terminals are used to send command strings to the SaferLua Controller. In turn, the Controller can send text strings to the terminal. The Terminals have a help system for internal commands:
  • clear = clear the screen
  • help = output this message
  • pub = switch terminal to public use (everybody can enter commands)
  • priv = switch terminal to private use (only the owner can enter commands)
  • send <num> on/off = send on/off event to e. g. lamps (for testing purposes)
  • msg <num> <text> = send a text message to another Controller (for testing purposes)

Thanks Joe7575! This is a really cool device and a necessary tool for all command-line geeks!
I've noticed a nice terminal feature: although it sends commands to designated Lua Controller, it accepts text messages from many such computers making it an excellent status console.

Thanks a lot.

I use this mod with moretrees, and only few type of leaves can be processed in the Fermenter (no one from moretrees).
I think, all vegetable, leaves, grass should be accepted in the fermenter too.

The wood and wood sticks should be processed by the grinder to sawdust, and be accepted in the fermenter.

May be the fermenter can also produce dirt, soil or fertilizer from processing?

Since I know you will made machine breakable, I should rethink some "compact" systems, I ever know I can't repair all block if they become broken.

Thanks a lot

Thanks Germain,
Which version do you currently use?
- the Fermenter should accept all leaves of the group "leaves", thus also leaves from aother mods. But I will test it.
- Wood will already be processed by the grinder, but not from moretrees so far
- Dirt/soil is a good idea. I am currently working on a more realistic Fermenter with real biomass... :)

Hi Joe7575,

I don't know how to have the version number of mods.
I added the mods from the repository, and moved outside the same mode was in the pack Dreambuilder, to be sure there is only one mods techpack active.

I checked the source code, there is a test that verify if the node is in the group "leaves".

I used the the inspector tools, and, with standard leaves I have for group:
- snappy : 3
- leafdecay : 3
- leaves : 1
- flammable : 2
With leaves from moretrees, the leaves have the same groups, but also : moretrees_leaves : 1

So, I don't understand why I can't put in the Fermenter yellow and red jungle leaves, or other leaves from moretrees.

I activated warehouse pack, the stairs are cool. I not yet tested the Controler terminals.

The grinder should need need Biofuel too, isn't it? May be add a power generator working with biofuel to produce LV power?

There is not standard way. For TechPack you have to check the file "releasenotes.md". Currently it is v2.02.04

This was a bug in the Fermenter code. It is fixed with v2.02.04

Good ideas, I'll see what I can do, stay tuned ...

Hi Joe7575,

I've just created a PR that adds 3 new crops recently introduced in farming_redo, so Harvester can recognize and pickup them.
Joe7575, what do you think about making max code size in SaferLua controller a mod setting ? I mean 'safer_lua.MaxCodeSize' variable which is now 5000. I know that putting too much here can hurt performance a lot, but maybe allowing it to be between 'safe' margins and let user play with it a little is acceptable after all ? In my singleplayer game I changed it to 6000 with no problems so far.

Best regards
Micu

Hi Micu
Thanks, your PR is confirmed.
And yes, I will make the code size configurable.

I keep having this error.

When I downloaded this, and used it on my world, this error popped up.

Would you please fix this?

Have you checked the dependencies?
I guess, tubelib2 is missing.
