[Mod] Stoneage, flint and fire [stoneage]

by Casimir » Post

You can find the flint when crating a new world, use that flint to craft a Hand-axe, use that tool to cut down trees (this mod also prevents you from cutting trees with bare fist and wooden tools), use more flints to craft stonetools (just like with cobblestone - you can still use cobble anyway). So it is not a mod that only adds new stuff, but changes the gameplay.

Watch this review by davidpace. It shows how to make fire (a lot of).

Features:
- Flints/Silex are quite rare, you have to search a little bit. They can be found about sealevel (+32 -16) in dirt and sand.
- A Hand-axe/Biface is the swiss knife of the stoneage, it can be used for everything, is a bit slower than stonetools.
- Craft stonetools not only with cobble, but with flint too. You need to do this at the beginning of a world, because you can't get stone (Reason for this below).
- Wooden tools are useless (I mean more useless than before). The Hand-axe replaces them mostly.
- You can't cut down a tree with the bare fist anymore. For this you need the Hand-axe.
- Firestriker makes fire. Place coal or paper (or cotton if you have some) on the right side of the tool.
- You need to make fire before you can craft a furnace (see crafting).
- Torches don't burn when crafted. You need to light them.
- There are almost 50 ways to light your torch.
- Torches burn down (to disable that set torchdecay = false). The torches just turn to unlit torches, just hit them with a burning one and they burn again.
- Craft sticks with three leaves above each other (old recipe still works).

Crafting:
- Silex ---> Biface/Handaxe
- Silex + cobble ---> firestriker
- Silex + steel ---> firestriker (a better one)
- Stick + coal ---> unlit torches
- Stonetools can be crafted with silex too. The shape remains the same.
- Furnace is crafted like normal, but with a burning torch in the middle.

==Original post==
This mod ads flints that are generated as ore in dirt and sand. You can use them to craft a hand axe/biface and stone tools.
That's all for now. Things to make fire will be added (someday).

When you start a new world, the first thing you normally do is to cut a tree with your bare fist, craft a pickaxe out of wood, and break stones with this wooden pickaxe. From that time on you never use wooden tools again. So this mod is to get rid of the wooden tools and your superfist. This is not included yet.
Textures need to be improved too.

This actually makes sense. Using a large chunk of flint to break a tree, and then adding a handle to the flint, from that wood, would seem to be more realistic. Then, you can make a small home and search for some ores (maybe you can make iron nuggets occur very rarely and as dense as coal in dirt_with_grass? mining the block gives a dirt block and 1-3 iron nuggets, 4 of which can be crafted into an ingot).
Resources are abundant; only money is scarce. People should not have to work hard and remain poor just to pay for the needs of survival.
Society can thrive without money - but only if productive members of society are rewarded for being productive.

New version.
http://ompldr.org/vZnZlMw/stoneage%2020121013.zip
added:
- Fire Striker.
Craft with silex and steel. Put paper (or flowers:cotton) at the right side of the tool in your inventory to use it.
- Overwrites some stuff. You can no more cut trees with the hand. Wooden tools are now mostly useless.
- Added the group "craftstone". You can craft stonetools with everything that has this group. At the moment its cobble, silex, and biface. (This is what SegFault suggested.)

depends on:
- default
- fire

Does anyone want this to be continued? If nobody uses it, it wouldn't be worth the work.

planed things:
- furnaces and torches need to be lighten to work.
- arrows and spears (using the throwing mod)
- bonfire

When hitting fire, the torch_unlit should be replaced with default:torch. But no mater what I try it is not working. Does anybody know what to do?
[edit] It works now. [/edit]

Code: Select all

minetest.register_craftitem("stoneage:torch_unlit", {
    description = "Torch",
    inventory_image = "stoneage_torch_unlit.png",
    stack_max = 99,
    liquids_pointable = false,
    on_use = function(itemstack, user, pointed_thing)
        if pointed_thing.type == "node" then
            local n = minetest.env:get_node(pointed_thing.under)
            if minetest.get_item_group(n.name, "igniter") ~= 0 then
                ?
                ?
                ?
            end
        else
            return
        end
    end
})

Absolutely brilliant - I've grown bored of default gameplay as of lately, and this'll make a nice addition to my LAN server. :-) Two thumbs up!

Love it!
Adds a great deal of realism to the game without changing too much.

In my opinion this should be part of the game.
Maybe as an option which you can turn on or off,
for those whom love to punch trees with their bare hands. :D

I haven't been able to find flints/silex in desert sand... does it spawn there?
How about gravel as an additional source of silex or gravel + silex as an alternative recipe for a firestriker?
Also, maybe, worth considering: dry shrub (or leaves or grass) as burning material next to the firestriker?
(Just some ideas I had while testing the mod.)

Hope you will continue this mod.

It's certainly a wonderful mod; it is mandatory to have on any of my servers.

The firestriker is similarly useless as the wood tools. Once you have a burning torch, you don't need it anymore.

Idea: No burning torches in inventory. You can only place unlit torches and must lit them with a fire striker. It is kind of weird to carry lots of burning torches with you anyways. The furnace would have to be lit like torches now.

No.

Yes thats the big problem with this mod. It's content is very much limited to the beginning of the game. As soon as you have some cobble and fire you don't need any of those things any more. But I don't know how to solve that. Your idea would mean that you have to light every single torch, over time that would be annoying.

Valid point. How about lighting it automatically IF you have a firestriker and some tinder in the inventory consuming one tinder. Otherwise an unlit torch is placed.
