And for the vectors its same as position, local vec = {x=0, y=0, z=0}. To serialize it call minetest.serialize(vec). This returns a string that can be stored in meta. Ill maybe implement this tomorow or so.
Nice! Can you take a look at the pull request and either merge the changes, or close it, first? It has also come to my attnetion that my diff got some weird line breaks, if so, I'm very sorry.

madarexxx chest cart is supported in monorail ... but monorail graphics are a little bit less advanced

I love the mod but, I have a few problems:

1. Sometimes when going over strips of powered rails the cart suddenly reverses
2. Sometimes the cart stops randomly. (usually when a)there is another cart on the track b) on a slope c) when coming off of a strip of powered rails
3. You can't delete/remove a cart
minetest version: clients:0.4.4 official binaries on windows server:c691d61 (if that helps) compiled them myslef it's on linux
Other mods: xdoors2,worldedit,streets,snow,skins,secret_pasage,plantlife,night vision,moreores,morebloclks,maptools,inventory+,homedecor,flamethrower,fireworks,farming,craft guide, chess, carts, boats, beds, alphabet,3dfurniture

Tried shift (or whatever sneak key you use) + leftclick?

The cart seems to rock back and forth after coming to a stop. Also, I'm having trouble picking the cart back up.

Can you please try to merge the powered and brake rails? It will help carts run autonomously without needing Mesecons, and the brake rail is just useful. Don't worry about the diff, I don't mind if you just do a giant copypaste from the file, as it is just some additions.

Much more useful when making a rollercoaster since it needs a emergency break to scare people.

Done.
The power function from default rails is removed now. Use powered rail instead.
Btw: You cant use mesecons.rules if you dont depend on mesecons. I have removed the rules.

could you make mesecons.rule a soft dependency so we can still use mesecons to power regular rails. me and some people have made an entire network of rails(connecting 5 capitals with 10 cities per capital) please dont make us change everything. also mesecons allow some people to get to places under certain curcumstances.

I removed powering of normal rails because we have powered rails now.

Could you have the copper rails be faster than the steel ones. Also could you make them connect to each other. Also I think you should add a chest rail and also drop off boxes where the chest's items go in and the other stuff comes out ( like in previous versions )

Why? I dont see any reason for that.

Nope. The raillike drawtype is handled by the engine.

I already have a chest cart (or something like this) in mind. Maybe the pipeworks mod could be useful for getting the items out of it, but dunno.

@EDIT2: When i put cart, and ride by it long way - when i come back into the position from which i started - cart is standing there, but its another... "cloned" one...

Thats a bug in the Minetest engine.

how about having separate file like powrails.lua with power rails and leaving everything else default carts? do you get the idea?

I think that since we;re not depending on mesecons, the recipes in Github should also be changed so it uses MESE added to rails for power, another steel ingot for braking. Also, since we now don't require mesecons, we should add it to default.

Entities are still not handled by Minetest as effectively as they need to be. I don't think Minetest default is ready for something that depends on entities as much as carts.

Hey Pilzadam, can you take the textures from the privious version for brake rail and make them a detector rail, also it would be helpful if you remade those wood switch things, and the reason I ask this of you is because it has many plausible potential applications in the game.

P. S. How do you add a graphic to your profile?
