[Mod] Magma conduits and volcanos [0.1.1] [volcano]

volcano 0.1.1 by paramat
For latest stable Minetest and back to 0.4.6
Depends default
Licenses: Code WTFPL, textures CC BY-SA. Ash is recoloured default sand by VanessaE

Github https://github.com/paramat/volcano


* To form a volcano, travel to a lava cave no lower than y = -256, this mod looks for lava up against a ceiling of stone and therefore 'under pressure', forming a conduit to the surface. Specifically the ABM looks for mese, diamond, gold or ore directly above lava source or flowing, this makes volcanos rare you may need to visit many lava caves before a conduit forms. To cheat or grow a volcano in a chosen place just place an ore above lava.
* When the conduit forms the co-ordinates are printed to the terminal, the magma will then rise fast towards the surface. ABMs are only active on nearby nodes so you need to stay nearby the conduit and follow it to the surface.
* At the surface the vent then rises slowly, emitting particles: lavabombs and ashcloud. As it rises towards a chosen maximum altitude the vent slowly widens to a chosen maximum radius. Lava flows cool to obsidian and ash nodes. Lava spreading and cooling on water drops an obsidian or stone pillar to the lakebed to avoid the floating volcano bug.


Version 0.1.1
---------------
* Surface now successfully detected, magma rise slows down and particles start at the surface instead of at sea level.
* Copper above lava no longer creates a conduit.

I have been waiting for this

This volcano was made in 3 hours. I built a construction area fence around it as decoration, but it was completely covered by the volcano :O

Awesome mod! I love it!

The shape is generated by lava flows, their behaviour is determined by the parameters MAGSINT COOLINT COOLCHA LAVCHA.

The ash node pattern is too large scale i suggest trying SCALE1 = 32.

Just played around with this, it's very cool. The particles really bring it to life.

Wow..... Great mod! I was working on volcano mod once after my mudslide mod because it seemed easy with liquids. I was wrong and a bug just made my volcano a super tall thin tube and whatever I do, it never turned in to the right shape so I just gave up.

PS... can you make a natural disaster mod pack using all other natural disaster related mods? (like mudslide, mesore impact, and this volcano mod)

I have stopped playing minetest, and may not come back to it again. I would like to thank everyone that made the amazing time I had playing it. This account is not in use anymore, and the email has been linked to a unused account. If any administrator reading this has time, feel free to delete my account. Thank you very much for the great experience.

Nice! You should make this compatible with Vanessa's pipeworks mod and technic. You could transport lava and use it as energy.

But lava doesn't come through pipes?!

In mainline pipeworks, lava can be transported through pneumatic tubes (as entities/sources). Using nodebreakers and deployers at each end of the desired tube path allows one to treat a tube circuit as equivalent to a pipeline for that purpose.

This mod is massively awesome

I added an abm

Code: Select all

minetest.register_abm({
  nodenames = {"volcano:ash"},
  neighbors = {"default:dirt_with_grass"},
  interval = 10,
  chance = 3,
  action = function(pos, node, active_object_count, active_object_count_wider)
    minetest.set_node(pos, {name="default:dirt"})
  end
})
Resulting in:

That is an excellent idea ... helps to blend the volcano into the terrain ... finds a good use for ash nodes and their perlin pattern ... and i love that screenshot, OCD textures look so good.
