Actually I totally forgot about it. I'm glad you mention it. I'll have it check for air above the pointed node (and maybe I'll add the possibility to pin a letter to a wall).

Haven't had the chance to test it in multyplayer yet, but looks nice. :)

Never mind, I didn't have the latest version. The issue I was talking about is fixed already.
So, this is a perfect mod (until I find a real bug :P)
I made a few (a lot of?) mods for minetest: here is a list.
See also the MT-Faithful texture pack (work in progress).

Small update (0.0.5)
- you get the default paper if you rightclicked on the placed paper but didn't write anything (Zeg9 found an issue :D)

It should be all who made Minetest. QD tip for remembering this is who goes with he (or in this case, they) and whom goes with him (or them).

Thanx :D

What exactly did you do to edit the letter and under which circumstances?
First leftclick and then rightclick, on the placed letter, while holding an eraser?
In multiplayer or singleplayer?
Was it a signed letter?
If so: did you spell the name right?

I have encountered an error when I was getting the letter out of a bottle. I missed the block I was going to click on and instead left clicked in the air. Minetest then crashed. here is what you will want from the debug:

Code: Select all

10:14:55: ACTION[ServerThread]: BSB uses memorandum:message, pointing at [nothing]
10:14:56: ERROR[main]: ServerError: LuaError: error: ...est-0.4.7\minetest-0.4.7\bin\..\mods\memorandum\init.lua:239: attempt to index field 'under' (a nil value)
10:14:56: ERROR[main]: stack traceback:
Hope you can fix this soon, I love this mod.

This could work better if paper was a node and used the drawtype that ladder also uses. That way you can stick it the the wall or ceiling too.

Sorry for late response.
I thought about that too, maybe I'll change it.

Btw: mod's on GitHub now.

Awesome mod. I have a suggestion: add Wax seals, so that we can seal closed the more important/royal letters, and the letter can not be opened without breaking the seal, making it obvious that the message has been intercepted.
Resources are abundant; only money is scarce. People should not have to work hard and remain poor just to pay for the needs of survival.
Society can thrive without money - but only if productive members of society are rewarded for being productive.

Yeah, a wax seal would be a nice feature. I'm not sure how to do that yet, but I'll see what I can do.

Write on Paper 0.1.0
- One can pin a letter at a wall (eye level or higher)


To place a letter at a wall there has to be a node which you could build to (e.g. air, flower) below, otherwise it will be placed on the ground.
If you place a letter too high above your head it floats in the air.
I wish I would've found a simpler and cleaner way to combine the features of facedir and wallmounted. I'm open for suggestions to improve the code.

First texture for a wax seal is there, but unused. Not sure how to implement it yet.

There should be a drawtype, "ladderlike" or however it was called... it worked fine for ladders, then why not here too?
Look, I programmed a bug for you. >> Mod Search Engine << - Mods by Krock - DuckDuckGo mod search bang: !mtmod <keyword here>

Yeah, it's called "signlike", used it here.
But didn't want to miss the ability to be able to rotate a letter horizontally depending on the direction the player looks when placing it on the ground. With "signlike" and "wallmounted" only this doesn't seem to be possible.
That's why I used two nodes: one with "signlike" and "wallmounted", the other one with "nodebox" and "facedir".
