[Mod] Glow Blocks [1.1] [glowblocks]

by Excalibur Zero » Post

Description:
This mod adds several nodes that emit light. It includes Glow Blocks that are animated to have a glow-like effect. It also includes Light Blocks which are normal blocks (dirt, stone, and grass) that emit light, light boxes also work with all normal texture changes to Dirt, Stone, and Grass blocks. It also adds Light Block Panels, which can be used to make paths, and other similar things.

The nodes in the mod are also mesecon compatible, however they work backwards, so when they don't have power they are on, and when they have power they are off. That is to make it so they can easily be used without needing power from mesecons.

This looks like a good start for a mod that adds lights to Minetest. Mesecons support could be very useful here. Look at the bobblocks mod to find out how this could be done.

I think I've figured out in general how to add mesecons support to it, but I don't know if I should. I think it would just be better to have some light blocks that don't require mesecons.

I am currently working on adding another set of nodes that are like normal nodes (like stone & dirt), but they emit light.

Edit: I've added three light blocks. I've found a simple way to make them, so if you want to suggest any blocks to have light blocks, then please let me know and I will add them.

I have seen it before, though I have never used it.

You could make it so that mesecon wires turn them off when current is applied- that way these will work fine without mesecons, but to switch them off you need mesecons.

That sounds good. I'll look into that.

Edit: I've added mesecon support so the blocks turn off when they receive power. I've also added "Light Block Panel"s which can be used to make a light above a block (for paths and other stuff).

What am I supposed to name the 'mod folder'?

I tried different versions of the name 'glow blocks', but none of them worked. How do I get this mod working?

Also would these blocks be in my inventory in creative mode?

Feel free to pm me

Hi,

According to the .lua file, it seems that you must rename this folder : glowblocks (just remove "-master")
and blocks will be in your inventory in creative mode.

This is strange, I looked in the lua's, and saw what looks to be code to keep them out of the inventory. Am I right?

Code: Select all

not_in_creative_inventory=1
I think I've had the right name, but This code hides the blocks.. I will remove this and see what happens! :-)

@onyx Thank you!

I downloaded this mod for test and I renamed the file as indicated in my previous message
and it works perfectly.
Which version of the game do you use and what other mods that are installed?
Anyway, you have no line of code to remove, perhaps you should re-download this mod.

Sorry, I can't help you more. ; )
