The condenser can only convert items it knows about. Open the file "tables.lua". At the bottom, it contains all the nodes that can be converted. It covers most of the things in the default game, but does not include any mod support. Hence technic items won't work.

I've not seen anyone else mention this yet: Whenever I place a block, it stays in my inventory. I like the idea of this mod and I'd like to use it but if I wanted infinite blocks, I'd play in creative mode. Since nobody else has reported this issue, any ideas what would be causing it?

I have found, downloaded, installed this nice mod today and got the same bug as Jouster27 (infinite blocks in non creative mode). So I started some "hacking the code".
Here the result:

Code: Select all

--- specialties-master/init.lua   2013-07-20 05:22:23.000000000 +0200
+++ specialties/init.lua    2013-10-25 23:02:39.747297591 +0200
@@ -242,10 +242,11 @@
         specialties.changeXP(name, "farmer", 5)
     end
 end
 local place_node = minetest.item_place_node
 function minetest.item_place_node(itemstack, placer, pointed_thing)
-    place_node(itemstack, placer, pointed_thing)
     specialties.changeXP(placer:get_player_name(), "builder", 1)
+    -- minetest.item_place_node returns an itemstack back to user. Do not let it disappear.
+    return place_node(itemstack, placer, pointed_thing)
 end

Sorry for my bad english.
 minetest.register_globalstep(function(dtime)
     if time+dtime < 10 then
I can say: it works for me but, I don't know if it is working for others.
Maybe it will help.

Sorry for my bad english

When you add superheat to a feller, the resulting block (specialties:axe_diamond_superheat_feller) shows to be unknown.

when we play, we break a block and put it on when you ask it always marks the same block cipher

There was a critical error. The nodes are infinite in inventory. the player can put infinite nodes, with only one in the inventory.

Find the init.lua mod and make the changes mentioned above. A line that has a minus sign (-) in front of it means delete the line. A line with a plus sign (+) in front of it means add the line. Save the file after you make the changes and it should fix the problem the next time you load the world.

I have tried the workaround with disabling drop_item
and the fix from saranas nothing works.

By the way could you add the mod to either /m modmenu or the unified_inventory?

Thanks,
JPR

Hello
Found the Problem and fixed it
Now it works like a charm.
At least for me. ;-)

Here is my changed xp.lua
in the init.lua I have changed only the tostr(num) to num.

Code: Select all

--File Manipulating
specialties.writeXP = function(name)
	local file = io.open(minetest.get_worldpath().."/"..name.."_XP", "w")
	for skill,num in pairs(specialties.players[name].skills) do
		file:write(skill.." "..tostring(num).."\n")
	end
	file:close()
end
specialties.readXP = function(name, specialty)
	local file = io.open(minetest.get_worldpath().."/"..name.."_XP", "r")
	if file == nil then
		specialties.writeXP(name)
		local empty = {}
		for skill,_ in pairs(specialties.skills) do
			empty[skill] = 0
		end
		return empty
	end
	local xp = {}
	local line = file:read("*l")
	while line ~= nil do
		local params = line:split(" ")
		xp[params[1]] = tonumber(params[2])
		line = file:read("*l")
	end
	file:close()
	return xp
end

--Table Modification
specialties.changeXP = function(name, specialty, amount)
	local current = specialties.players[name].skills[specialty]
	if current == nil then current = 0 end
	local newAmount = current+amount
	if newAmount >= 0 then
		specialties.players[name].skills[specialty] = newAmount
		local player = minetest.get_player_by_name(name)
		local id = specialties.players[name].hud[specialty]
		player:hud_change(id, "text", newAmount)
		return true
	else
		return false
	end
end
Have fun,
JPR

4aiman did make a fork of this mod, but it crashes with the following error:

Code: Select all

20:21:43: ACTION[ServerThread]: Inocudom places node default:cobble at (-42,8,-8)
20:21:43: ERROR[main]: ServerError: caught (...)
20:21:43: ERROR[main]: stack traceback:

The only exception to this is if the fork is in Magichet. Below is a link to the fork:
