This is an awesome mod!! Easy to control and you can't just walk through the heli. Nice job.

EDIT: I've encountered a bug: if you fly too far away, another helicopter will appear where you launched the first one. The same thing happened with the boats mod.

Thats a bug in the engine. It happens with every entity: carts, boats, ufos, helicopters, mobs,...
I made a few (a lot of?) mods for minetest: here is a list.
See also the MT-Faithful texture pack (work in progress).

Make it so you can shoot missiles out of the helicopter, just a 2d projectile that damages players and mobs.

heli.x

Code: Select all

      MeshMaterialList { //Cube_004 Material List
        1;
        1;
        0;;
        Material Default_Material {
           0.800000; 0.800000; 0.800000; 0.800000;;
           96.078431;
           0.500000; 0.500000; 0.500000;;
           0.000000; 0.000000; 0.000000;;
        }
      } //End of Cube_004 Material List
This appears first at line 144 then again at 342 and again at 1840.

This would not cause any problems with minetest because the multiple texture update support is broken in the current version.
I recently submitted a patch that would have allowed us to use multiple UV's & materials correctly, however, it has been reverted seemingly because it broke this model...shame.

Perhaps if I could see the blender model I might can figure why it was exported like that.
Pavel_S, Thank you for sending me a copy of the .blend for the helicopter.
The problem it seems is that you have exported the model with multiple objects, each of which has included its own material list, hence the three copies in the .x file. While this should not be a problem in itself, with my suggested patch applied, minetest is expecting to see three textures in the entity property table.

Since all the objects in your model are using the same default material then simply adding this makes it work with my patched version, without breaking compatibity with the current version.

Code: Select all

    mesh = "heli.x",
    textures = {"heli.png","heli.png","heli.png"},
Image

In my experience it is much better to join all objects into one single object and use named vertex groups instead, like the default character model for example. This way only one material list will be exported.

In addition to the guidelines given here: http://wiki.minetest.com/wiki/Using_Blender
Another good article (if a little dated) can be found here: http://www.binarymodular.com/main/artic ... icle_id=94

On an unrelated note there is problem when logging out from a server with the entity attached.

Code: Select all

I have a request. Can a version be made that can't go higher than the floatlands mod? This way, I can use both this mod and the ufo mod and neither would be pointless. This would be "cheaper" but the ufo mod can go higher.

I like how the heli is made of wood and glass, but the crafting has no glass in it -_-

Some have suggested increasing the crafting cost, I think it's reasonable, but you should add a fuel requirement, although I'm not sure what. Coal is obvious, but a coal-powered heli is all but impossible IRL. if you don't mind it depending on Technic, you could give it an inventory to place batteries in. Or, if you just want to increase cost, maybe add an heli:engine part, some steel, maybe pipes or stainless steel if you don't mind the dependencies.
