I've re-added the pictures here as well. I really hope I won't have to do all that work a fourth time. Anyway...if you've played on a server, you've probably seen travelnets by now :-)

So, if MediaCrush goes down, all of its content gets erased?
Recovering from the abomination I am. Clocking time for Garry's Mod I am too.

..or at least become unavailable. That's essentially what "down" in this case means. Practically all my threads introducing mods where originally equipped with pictures - back at the time I used zimg.eu. That went down. Then viewscew hosted them. Until it suffered a harddisk failure. And now I'm hoping that mediacru.sh will last. As all of them are/where free services, there's no way to know how long they'll exist.

The travelnet mod got a new config option:
Code: Select all
travelnet.abm_enabled              = false;

Set it to true if your data file mod_travelnet.data got lost somehow (or if you used a map-saving client and never had access to that file). The option will start an abm that checks travelnets which have been "forgotten" and reattaches them to the network they think they're part of. Over time, the network will heal itshelf.

Is there any way to configure the travelnet box after it has been configured once before, without breaking it?

No, there isn't. Is there any need for it?

I accidently placed a second elevator block right in front of another, blocking access out, and it won't let me dig either. Otherwise the mod appears to work.

Ah, I can see the problem. I'm afraid the best solution is to grant yourshelf noclip or to approach that misplaced elevator from the other side. While you're inside the elevator, you can only dig the node you're standing in...not the misplaced elevator in front that's blocking your exit.

Got the problem cleared up by running the server in creative mode. It really should be possible to dig a misplaced elevator in normal mode.

It is possible to dig a misplaced elevator or travelnet. It might require configuration first - which ought to be no big problem (just enter dummy text into the fields). What isn't possible is digging something in front of the elevator while you're standing inside it.

It looks good in the sample image. I'm just afraid that it might work out less well once the station names get longer. Formspecs are a bit difficult in that apsect.

You can set a limit for the name length. Generally, when people are forced to make things short, they think more and better choose their names or words.

That's true, although it ought to be descriptive enough as well. Still, fiddling with the text fields there is troublesome, especially when using a larger font. Perhaps something like "Station name [21*]" or something like that might work.

Agree with that. There's also a better star in the ASCII code (★) : ★

l added up and down arrows to the elevator to use it faster and without annoying formspec.
You only need to punch the elevator aiming an arrow.

The arrows currently "respect the 16x16 texture size":

I've found 2 problems:
1: when inside an elevator/travelnet box, you can't open the elevator doors because the hitbox for the teleporter surrounds you
2: if you push the elevator with a piston so there's a block where the top half was, then move it again or break it, it will destroy the block.

Other than that, this is a really awesome and useful mod.

It would be cool if there was another "less overpowered" teleporter, like the elevator but able to move in any direction, as long as it's a straight line (only one coordinate changes)

Why straight lines only?

because then it would be harder to set up; less overpowered.

That's why it has those "<>" buttons in front of the station name. Click on that button to open/close the door - like with a real elevator.

That's a common problem with all 2-nodes-wide objects and pistons. There's no easy solution for that I'm afraid.

your on_destruct function doesn't test if the node above is "travelnet:elevator_top" before removing it,
