[Mod] Prehistoric [0.1.8] [prehistoric]

This mod started as a small texturepack, it's kind of an add-on for the stoneage mod at the moment.
Most of the code is from other mods.
Textures made by me, partially based upon others.

It's still work in progress, more screens and info will follow soon.


This mod is split into different parts:


[h]archaetools[/h]
Dependencies: default (minetest), farming (minetest)
Supports: animalmaterials, bone, flint, gnawedbones (see below), stoneage
This one is half texturepack, half mod. Some tools have only a different texture, some have a different name too.
Most of them work the same way as before and if you uninstall the mod you have the standard ones.
Almost all the silex recipes from the stoneage mod work with flint from the flint mod too.
By default the "Wooden Pickaxe" is replaced by a "Deer Antler Pickaxe" and the "Wooden Shovel" by a "Bone Shovel".
You can disable this in settings.txt.
The bones from the animals mod (dropped by the vombie), from the bone mod and from gnawedbones (see below) can be used to craft them.
[spoiler=Tools]
Comparison between default/farming and archaetools items (bone tools disabled):

I'll probably edit some of the textures.

[spoiler=Recipes]
New recipes (you can still use the standard recipes):

Recipes for bone tools (the recipes with planks won't work anymore):

[/spoiler]


[h]burningmaterials[/h]
Dependencies: stoneage
Supports: darkage, dryplants
You can use dry_shrub (default), dry_leaves & straw (darkage), hay & reed (dryplants) as tinder for the Firestriker or for crafting a Bonfire.


[h]gnawedbones[/h]
Dependencies: default (minetest), legacy (minetest)
Supports: animalmaterials, mobs
When you eat a piece of meat (from one of the supported mods) or a rat you will get a bone back.


[h]huntertools[/h]
Dependencies: throwing
Supports: animalmaterials, flint, stoneage
This one adds a couple of recipes and different textures for wooden bow and arrow of the throwing mod.
[spoiler=Recipes]
Some of the new recipes (you can still use the standard recipes):

[/spoiler]


[h]moresilex[/h]
Dependencies: stoneage
Silex from the stoneage mod can be found on desert sand and gravel.


[h]primitivedeco[/h]
Dependencies: default (minetest), dye (minetest)
Supports: animalmaterials
Adds decoration: a painting of a wisent and a placeable fur cover.
[spoiler=Recipes]
Image Image
[/spoiler]


[h]stringrecipes[/h]
Dependencies: default (minetest), farming (minetest)
Supports: animalmaterials
Adds new string recipes.
You can craft strings out of Wool (any color), Fur (from MOB Framework), Grass, Jungle Grass, Papyrus and Reedmace.
[spoiler=Recipes]

Image Image
[/spoiler]


[h]woodstuff[/h]
Dependencies: default (minetest)
Changes "Junglewood Planks" to "Junglewood Logs" and "Wooden Planks" to "Wooden Logs".
Adds "Twigs" as building material. Out of "Twigs" you can craft roofs or slabs,
out of logs you can craft poles, out of poles you can craft water poles.
These water poles become entities when placed. This way they can exist inside water. It's a bit tricky to place them, but I think it's worth the result.
Known issue: sometimes the water pole doesn't work the way it's supposed to. You can fix this by placing and/or destroying a node next to it.
[spoiler=Settings]
Code: Select all
PLANKS_NOW_LOGS = true
AUTO_ROOF_CORNER = true

When AUTO_ROOF_CORNER is set to true, roof blocks will change shape under certain circumstances (just test it).

Thanks for your feedback. :)
A Biome is worth cosideration. I'll think about it. But I see no need in an ice age landscape, and I'm not sure if I want to go back to a time where humans didn't exist yet.
However, some plants and animals would be nice. Don't expect anything like that soon though.

Thank you. :)

The flint texture is very nice and I like the way of getting flint like in Minecraft.
The stoneage mod adds realism to the game and recipes for silex/flint.
Since I like both mods I thought: why not combine the two?

Somehow this topic magically moved from Modding General to Mod Releases.
I really had to search for my own thread, since I didn't request a move yet.
Funny experience.
Thanks for moving. :D

Your creativity with this is quite amazing. Keep up the good work, for I hope to find this on a server one day.

I hope oOChainLynxOo will test this some time.

Thanks for your feedback. :)

I actually thought about that, but I'm not sure if I want to force the player to stay in the stone age .
What I do want is to give the player less reasons to leave the stone age.

Maybe I'll try and make a gamemode based on this mod, depending on the result I'll upload it.

Awesome work. The mod is really developing into something unique and wonderful.

I also think you have enough content to turn it into a full fledged game if you so desired.

Imo, the bow and arrow textures are better than the throwing mod's arrows. Very, VERY nice job with this mod. You are really becoming a prominent member of the forums. :D

Thanks for your feedback folks. It's really motivating. :)

I've started working on a game by removing from minetest_game what's not needed and adding this mod and dependencies. It's far from ready to upload and working on it distracts me from working on the mod itself. So for now I'll only work on the game if I don't know how to improve the mod.

Something that might be a good idea is putting this on github. that way people can help make a game mode while you work on the mod.

Good idea.
Haven't taken the time to take a closer look at github yet. I'll probably put something on it this weekend.
