@neko259
added secondary download link, but only latest version will have a secondary link

right click was used to determin beween harvest and attack I already thought about using left click for everything just deciding what to do by wielded item. By now I didn't want to change behaviour of mod as people might already got used to it.

@ALL
I personaly don't have a preference so everyone who is using it comment what you prefer:
(Option 1) right click for harvest/catch, left click for fighting
(Option 2) everything on left click only decided by wielded tool/item

Edit1:
@Hackeridze sorry neko259 just used last release mode change option ;-)

You see, I'd like using right click for using things. But almost all mods already use left click. And on_use function in the API uses it too. So even if you make your mod use right click, it would be different. Also, dropping the item when 'using' it not on animal is a bit confusing too :)

btw i personaly can't get used to git it obviously has great advantages when having multiple developers concurrent working on same source but when working alone it's just a pain in the ass ... at least to me. And yes I know if you want a powerfull tool you can't expect it to be simple ... but I don't need that distributed features.

@neko259 I can see the benefits and by now as your vote is the only one you've got the majority ;-) I'd just prefere to have some more opinions or at least give them chance to comment or not.

github is great for fast updating sources, without 'searching' new versions :)

I don't se any benefit compared to eg svn in this particular usecase

but let's don't argue about whats good at this vcs bad at that ...

Topic atm is RMB vs LMB harvesting ;-)

Why don't animals have a selection (or collision?) box fit to their visual size? If I want to hit a mob, I have to search for his real body somewhere an the bottom.
And what are false DMs supposed to do? I get confused when I see them and run away like from the real DMs, but these ones don't make fireballs and are almost harmless.
And your false rats jump VERY high. Is that a feature?

1) colision boxes ... haven't looked at that issue by now maybe they can be fixed but it's a little bit tricky as collision boxes are 3d elements while sprites are 2d only so they won't fit perfect in any case

2) "false" dm's are supposed to be a replacement for original dm's if you think they're to easy I'll make them harder. They should make fireballs too just not the ones emitting light as entities can't emit light.

3) nope rats are not expected to jump too high I'll fix it for next version

thanks for testing you're the first one that gives feedback to the new features added the last releases

Collision boxes need at least fit the animal's height. I use gun mod so I need to shoot mobs from the distance, but I can't see an animal's collision box without approaching to it. And I can't guess because their collision boxes are completely different from their visual size.
Thanks for everything :)

You can't shoot animals by now, at least not the way it's expected. Entities don't implement gethealth/sethealth by now this is a missing feature in minetest.
ATM animals health is dealt manualy. This is a workaround and will be changed as soon as minetest is fixed.

Gun mod's author said your animals die from 1 hit.

this is because gethealth always returns 0 no matter what is set by sethealth

I've noticed feather has a description "feather", not "Feather". Default mod has the descriptions starting with capitals, so I think we should do the same. The same goes for "raw meat" and, I think, all the other items.

I haven't test the other items. Mobs work like before, so I'm waiting for the collision boxes. Thanks for the mod :)

I've noticed the capital on originals too. I'll add an additional configuration parameter "name" automaticaly switched by language settings too. For now just changing the names would result in worlds with many unknown entities what i didn't want to do.

Name and description are different fields. Changing description won't do nothing to the world I think.
