Vanessa's plantlife modpack


This modpack supplies my Flowers-Plus and Poison Ivy mods, rewritten from scratch to use biome_lib, plus an updated version of the classic Bushes mod (e.g. various kinds of berries), a reduced version of the original Nature mod, called Nature Classic here, Mossmanikin's Ferns and Dryplants mods, the components of his Undergrowth modpack, bas080's vines and rope mod, and my 3D Mushrooms mod.

The purpose of the modpack as a whole is to add various kinds of foliage to the world.

Download: https://gitlab.com/VanessaE/plantlife_m ... master.zip
...or browse the code: https://gitlab.com/VanessaE/plantlife_modpack

Install: First, you must completely remove any copies of this modpack and/or any individual copies of its components that you may have previously installed. Then, download the above zip, extract it, and put the resultant "VanessaE-plantlife_modpack-xxxxxxx" folder into your Minetest mods folder. It's a good idea to rename the folder to just "plantlife_modpack".

Dependencies: biome_lib, minetest_game from commit 408ee69f or later, and Minetest engine 0.4.16 or later.

Recommends: moretrees

Important details:

Configuration: By default, all of the components of this modpack are enabled. Any of them can be disabled by simply deleting their respective folders from within the modpack's main folder, as is normally the case with a modpack.

+1 Great work VanessaE!

The old flowers mod made the waterlilies spawn even deep into the ocean. Has this been fixed or is there a way to fix it?

kaeza: that has not been fixed, but is easily done. I just hadn't thought about it. I'll get to it Real Soon Now™ ;-)

2 minutes into the game:

03:01:23: ERROR[main]: ServerError: LuaError: error: ...eo/.minetest/mods/minetest/plantlife/plants/init.lua:107: bad argument #1 to 'get_perlin' (number expected, got nil)
03:01:23: ERROR[main]: stack traceback:

I didn't have this happen on my end after much testing, but I just pushed an update that should fix this - I forgot to check if the perlin seed value was nil and assign a default if found. That's fixed now (defaults to 0).

Anyone who has this mod should re-download (or git pull, as appropriate). Added a minor fix for seaweed spawning wrong (facedir/param2 wasn't being set). Extended the mod's API slightly and updated API.txt accordingly.

Fixed a few bugs - waterlilies now spawn only in shallow water (3 nodes deep or less), and a bit more densely when they do. Fixed junglegrass turning into dry shrubs when on grass (should only be in the desert). Added a new field to the API to allow one to specify water depth for spawning items on water.

+1000 Great!

2012-12-03: Split the flowers, junglegrass, and poisonivy components into separate folders so that this behaves more like a mod pack. To disable a component, delete the appropriate folder. The "plants" folder/mod herein supplies the API and glue used by the others. Also, randomized the spawning algorithm a little, to break up the patterns that were showing up in the spawned plants.

2012-12-04: Another minor update today: I renamed the "plants" module inside this modpack to "plants_lib" and adjusted the other components accordingly. Anyone who is using the plants module directly, just adjust your depends.txt to match. Anyone getting to it via the flowers mod (e.g. nature pack prior to v1.0.0) will need no changes.

having an issue with the dandelion's the textures are not showing up in the world so it get an odd texture x when i punch the node it goes to my inventory but no texture just an empty spot i have to highlight it to see what it is any ideas

This is a bug in the client/engine. Others have had the same issue with even the default items in the game. I am not sure of the cause. Perhaps disable your texture atlas and make sure you're not using any other programs that occupy a lot of video memory.

Good mod, thanks.
For my own use i added a recipe to craft 4 cotton into white wool, and made cotton plants drop 4 cotton.
Code: Select all
minetest.register_craft({
    output = "flowers:cotton 4",
    recipe ={
    {"flowers:flower_cotton"},
    }
})

minetest.register_craft( {
    output = "wool:white",
    recipe = {
            { "flowers:cotton", "flowers:cotton"},
            { "flowers:cotton", "flowers:cotton"}
    },
})

I had considered a recipe like that, but wasn't sure whether to do that or not.

By the way, minecraft added pots too. Long time after this mod ;)

Your images do not show up for me. It appears you need to give permission on your google docs page to let others see them.

I don't know if that moreflowers mod will be worked on in the future (the one with the sunflowers.) If it won't be, will a version of it be made for this mod?

PostPosted: Sun Jan 06, 2013 00:34

It might be possible to convince me to import it into plantlife :-) , but I'll need to take a closer look at it later (particularly the growth patterns of the flowers). Note that a few plants will be dropped that are duplicates of something that already exists.

PostPosted: Sun Jan 06, 2013 00:40
by Inocudom
I do think it would be a good idea to drop the duplicates, and the leftover flowers would have to be made flammable (they would also have to spawn similarly to the manner that yours do.) The mushrooms don't spawn in the caves as much as I would like them too and the brown plants would look nice in the deserts. I left a few suggestions in the topic for the moreflowers mod as well.

It's poisonous, why would you want to?

Poison ivy isn't supposed to be climbable - "climbing" means it will grow vertically against a wall.
