[mod] Hills [grassblock]

by qwrwed » Post

This mod adds a full grass block (all faces are grass), a non-walkable (not solid) railllike grass cover, and 3 non-cubic grass blocks (normal slope, inner corner slope and outer corner slope)
Depends: default
Suggested by Immanuel_Kant, used on Redcrab's 30401 server. That version is outdated, and has only grass blocks and grass covers. The crafting recipe for 1 grassblock for that version is one dirt surrounded by 8 leaves.

Good! I think more people will like it.

I've read the init.lua and then tried it out. Now I've some questions/remarks:

1. I think you mixed up the output of your 1st and 3rd crafting (grassblock:block and hill)
2. The 5th craft, grassblock:block 6 is only possible after doing the 4th craft, default:dirt_with grass (or the first if the output should be grassblock:block). Normally digging dirt_with_grass gives you a dirt in your inventory, the grass disappears.

Edit: no it doesn't spawn by itself.

1. Thanks for telling me, i will update it.
2. Putting grassblock in the craft table gives you dirt_with_grass, that recipe is so you don't have to keep placing and digging them to convert them into dirt; It's so grassblock can be made of dirt or dirt_with_grass.

EDIT: updated.

Oh, wow. Actual hills with actual slopes!

Might I suggest implementing a seconds set like a staircase? That way, you still have slopes, but you can gently stroll up them, as opposed to jumping. Keep these ones though too. They make an awesome secret entrance to my bunker.

Ok.
By the way, I haven't really been writing the mods I've been meaning to, as I've been busy with homework, playing minetest and other games and not dying on a school trip. But I will include some description of the mod in the 1st post.

wonder if there is a way to put grass on any side of the dirt node that is open to air so that there is a lot less dirt brown color on the map

If it's your server just exchange in the file games/minetest_game/mods/default/init.lua all occourances of
default_grass_side.png with default_grass.png.

It would be nice if mesh nodes were possible. That way, true slopes would be possible.

I agree - at least nodeboxes (usually) fit in with a cubic world though.

Though that is true, nodeboxes have more faces, thus more polygons.
