Well then it's their fault if they're too lazy to also search for "depend". I am not gonna dumb-down my work just for some lazy schmuck who doesn't care to learn a little. :-)

underground trees-trees that spawn in caves(really really rare)
Why would birch trees be so high up?

Since moretrees uses plantlife for its biome controls, then if birch trees require colder temperatures, they should rely on the temperature map in plantlife, rather than just elevation. The temperature map is derived from SPlizard's snow mod, btw.

Trees should use the elevation, temperature, and the general "likely to grow plants here" controls, and nearness to water or sand (or both, e.g. beaches) should also be considered. All of these can be combined to produce unique biomes.

Thank you. Those of us that DO actually read topics before installing something we would otherwise know nothing about appreciate you not dumbing it down.

That all sounds great, but it leaves me with a question.

How is temperature defined in Minetest?

In the snow mod, it's Perlin noise-based. Since snow needs freezing ground in order to stick, I figured the edge of a snow biome is 0°C.

I started with those values in plantlife and then from there, I normalized the coldest temperature to be -25°C (about -13°F) and extended the range the other way as well. This is the resulting range I came up with:

https://github.com/VanessaE/plantlife/b ... I.txt#L509

(See other, earlier parts of the file for the main API info)

So I figure, if you set the temperature limits for a given plant to be some pair of values in the above perlin scale, you're basically saying "this plant needs a temperature of X to grow", in addition to the other controls.

The plantlife mod simply checks these various controls before spawning something, in effect creating active biomes.

How is progress on this mod as of late? It is sad that this mod doesn't get as much attention as it deserves.

Actually I've been working on it periodically. RBA and I are working together intermittently to put together a full suite of trees. There will be a new update soon that adds the rest. With a little luck, it'll be in a few days.

I think that you should be able to change temps slightly with torches or fires (not the default one but more like a camp fire) so that we could have tree farms in the mountains.

think you are talking about smudge pot ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smudge_pot ) that might be handy for farming mod also maybe use it to warm and area slightly and speed up the growth rate a tad

Torches affecting local temperature sounds like a good idea, but I'll have to give some thought as to how to make that work. Patches welcome. :D

I have had the mod installed and running now for 6 hours and although there is a ton of saplings, none have grown into trees that I can see of. How long does it take for these new trees to grow?

Yes, moretrees is awesome, but it makes sense that it isn't getting much attention. I doesn't run on stable Minetest, after all. I imagine many of the developer types are using the unstable version, but I think most people are using stable Minetest. When stable Minetest catches up though, I'm sure this will be well worth the wait.

Did you also download the latest plantlife on which moretrees depends?

It took me 2 1/2 minetest days to get 2 jungletrees. Maybe you can change some values to make them grow faster.

Is there a way to 'hide' the sapplings? I think it's in the jungletree code, because when I installed that mod, I saw all those sapplings for the first time.

I did; both latest plantlife and moretrees directly from GitHub. Still getting that error. Could it have to do with me using Windows…? :v

Idk, I don't use windows for minetest. Do you use the latest 0.4.4 version?

2013-01-19: Big update! All trees are generated at map-generation time. If you plant a sapling, it will grow eventually into a tree via an ABM. You MUST update your copy of plantlife to match.
