+1

pls add a simple example how to use this, makes it much easier to understand. like a short code example to crate a wood sphere with your function deploy_sphere ...

i think this has a big potential

its not really indended to call the shape function in lua, its more intended that you craft a sphere node, like this:

Code: Select all

-M-   M=dirt/wood/brick/cobble/stone/glass
MMM   make bigger spheres by using small spere as the material
-M-
then you place it, and you get a sphere.

if you want to make a sphere using an API, worldedit will be better

hmmmm...

whatever i try i got the message when i try to placed a small cobble sphere

no room to build because deploy_sphere:cobble_small is in the way at ( y = 14, x =37, z =-2)

there is plenty of room so i really dont know waht to do

The suggested wood and glass sphere recipes conflict with round wood and glass tables in Homedecor, just FYI :-)

maze and cylinder works too.... lots of work now to remove that from my map again *lol*

how do i use the buliding? i see examples but dont know to place them...

for example, how do i place the 12.we from the small buildings file into my world ?

the only thing you can choose is small, medium or large... the actual building is random

if you want 12.we to appear then you would have to remove all the other *.we files from that folder

okay now check everything and its working, just some probs with the large building, cause i dont finde space to place that...

a suggestion from my side:
maybe its possible to choose a building with a kind of function. maybe have different recipies (paper or craftplan) so its possible to choose the building you want.
so you have a block for a bulding (small, medium, big) and then add a craftplan to choose the type of house.

anyway its a gread tool for minetest, somebody should programm a editor for the building.... i guess when i start doing this a lot of ppl are again faster then me....hehehe...

i was thinking about a mod to add to this pack that kindof does that... very much the same as the deploy_building mod, except it does not auto-deploy. you have to right click it (it opens like a chest), and there is a button added for each building found in the folder. you click which one you want, it checks space then builds

sounds good, maybe you add a kind of function to organize buildings so its easy to add more buildings of the *we type.
maybe a textfile where the buildingstypes can be added. so at the start this file is read and then all availible builldingtypes.

in this way you dont need 3 different folders...

also you should check what kind of building type is placed, just imagine somebody take a big building in the small building folder, i am not sure how the checking works for the space... maybe thiss could be a problem.

can you pls explain the format of the *we fille a bit more..

-1 0 -1 default:wood 0 0 <= thats to place one block whats the 0 0 behind the wood ?

its even easier than that, no txt file needed... just put them in the folder and they will be detected and made into a button on the deploy node

the 0 0 is param1, param2

eg:

local node = {}
node.name = name
node.param1 = param1
node.param2 = param2
minetest.env:add_node(pos, node)


Oh, i should note... you make *.we files using worldedit mod. =)

i have had a think about this and decided i probably wont do it. if you want to load a specific building in a specific place then worldedit is probably better.

Could you implement... cones? 4:1, 3:1, 2:1, 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4 height to diameter ratios.

Great job!
You could add the braid-maze code (a few lines to detect dead ends and open some of them) to make it harder to get out of the maze. With the "simple" maze you just have to keep right to get out.

Hi echo, that maze code is too hardcore, I just skipped over most of it and prayed it worked. Would you be able to put that change in?

I think there are three changes:
1. two more variables to detect dead ends (two new lines)
old:

Code: Select all

        local pos = {x = 0, y = 0, l = 0}
        table.insert(moves, {x = pos_x, y = pos_y, l = pos_l})
new:

Code: Select all

        local pos = {x = 0, y = 0, l = 0}
        local forward = true
        local dead_end = {}
        table.insert(moves, {x = pos_x, y = pos_y, l = pos_l})
2. set generation direction "forward" (one new line)
old:

Code: Select all

            if #possible_ways > 0 then
                direction = possible_ways[math.random(# possible_ways)]
new:

Code: Select all

            if #possible_ways > 0 then
                forward = true
                direction = possible_ways[math.random(# possible_ways)]
3. dectect dead ends and remove them if possible with 20% chance (math.random(5) == 1 -- 100% would be too easy again)
old:

Code: Select all

            else
                pos = table.remove(moves)
                pos_x = pos.x
                pos_y = pos.y
                pos_l = pos.l
            end
        until pos_x == start_x and pos_y == start_y

-- create exit on opposite end of maze and make sure it is reachable
new:

Code: Select all

            else -- there is no possible way forward
                if forward then -- the last step was forward, now back, so we're in a dead end
                    -- mark dead end for possible braid
                    if not maze[pos_l][pos_x - 1][pos_y] then -- dead end to E, only way is W
                        table.insert(dead_end, {x = pos_x, y = pos_y, l = pos_l, dx = 1, dy = 0})
                    elseif not maze[pos_l][pos_x + 1][pos_y] then -- dead end to W, only way is E
                        table.insert(dead_end, {x = pos_x, y = pos_y, l = pos_l, dx = -1, dy = 0})
                    elseif not maze[pos_l][pos_x][pos_y - 1] then -- dead end to S, only way is N
                        table.insert(dead_end, {x = pos_x, y = pos_y, l = pos_l, dx = 0, dy = 1})
                    elseif not maze[pos_l][pos_x][pos_y + 1] then -- dead end to N, only way is S
                        table.insert(dead_end, {x = pos_x, y = pos_y, l = pos_l, dx = 0, dy = -1})
                    end
                    forward = false
                end
                pos = table.remove(moves)
                pos_x = pos.x
                pos_y = pos.y
                pos_l = pos.l
            end
        until pos_x == start_x and pos_y == start_y
-- create partial braid maze, about 20%
        for _, braid_pos in pairs(dead_end) do
            -- print(braid_pos.x.."/"..braid_pos.y.."/"..braid_pos.l.." "..braid_pos.dx.."/"..braid_pos.dy)
            x = braid_pos.x + braid_pos.dx * 2
            y = braid_pos.y + braid_pos.dy * 2
            if math.random(5) == 1 and x > 0 and x < maze_size_x - 1 and y > 0 and y < maze_size_y - 1 and not maze[braid_pos.l][x][y] then
                -- remove wall if behind is corridor with 20% chance
                maze[braid_pos.l][braid_pos.x + braid_pos.dx][braid_pos.y + braid_pos.dy] = false
                -- print("removed "..braid_pos.l.."/"..braid_pos.x + braid_pos.dx.."/"..braid_pos.y + braid_pos.dy)
            end
        end
-- create exit on opposite end of maze and make sure it is reachable
Maybe it would be better to make it braid only for medium and large mazes. For small mazes it could open too many ways to the exit instead of confusing the player.

I added it, and I made it only do it if the size is above 15 (which means only medium and large). Havent tested it yet but will try later on today.

Thanks for the help with the maze code!

p.s. I would also like to see the maze code added to WorldEdit. Are you interested in doing that?
