Thanks Amaz. Add this as a new line 640 in functions.lua:
Code: Select all
local via = area:index(x - 1, y, z)

0.3.1
The bug above is fixed.
-- remove lava
-- thin rivers with altitude
-- remove flexy realm option and flex noise
-- add cube centre parameters
-- add dyson cube
-- constant width fissures

I realised i could turn the cube inside out and add a dyson cube realm, so no more need for my 'dysoncube' modpack.
It is important to set the realm limits fairly close around your structure, otherwise a dyson sphere or dyson cube or tube realm will fill all space with their underground, or other realms may be processing but only placing atmosphere. Choose the atmosphere limit just above the highest possible mountain (roughly 2 * TERRS).

Wow, that is amazing! I can't believe something like that didn't require rewriting the engine! I always thought the lua api was somewhat limited, but there are always people like you who do amazing things which seem impossible.

Just to be clear the direction of gravity does not change in this mod, that would require a major engne rewrite.
However i consider these realms just as interesting to explore when the player has the wrong gravity direction for the terrain.

I just wondered wether a mod could warp the coordinate system of minetest for the view displayed.

@paramat, your pictures are mind blowing as ever. (should have said that when I first viewed these of course)

Yes, this is damn nice, created a planet with 10000 radius, looks so funny and interesting, too bad we can't define gravity to center of planet to visit it on all sides.

I love this mod (especially the tube!), but the cube planet always seems to bug out on me. I get a world filled with lava except for a large cube of air that I have to search to find.

Could you make tube worlds that are just a tube of steel in space (The outside is steel but the inside is the ground like normal)? I don't like the fact that it's stone all around.

I wish there was a way to get rid of the shadows :(

I like how this still gets comments.
Sorry it is so neglected, there are things needing improvement. As with many of my mods it is somewhat of a 'Proof Of Concept' or experiment.
i'll check the cube planet.
An O'Neill type space-colony was the inspiration for the tube world, ideally yes it should have a space-colony exterior.

does this alter the physical block location or is this just awesome visuals?
I don't remember who but somebody made a modified engine that visually makes the world round

The 'Spheretest' experiment was done only by shaders as an illusion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztAg643gJBA
My mod actually creates these different structures by placing nodes in programmed ways.

By the way, the cube planet is broken indeed, lava only, hopefully i'll get around to fixing it soon.

does this change the players gravity orientation?

No, the MT engine is coded to have only one direction of gravity and one player orientation.

I got an error.

I use minetest 5.1.0.

'OOM' means 'Out Of Memory' and can happen if you are using LuaJIT instead of standard Lua.
LuaJIT has a limitation on Lua memory usage, and complex Lua mapgens like this one use a lot of Lua memory, especially for 3D noise, which this mod uses heavily.
You can probably solve this by using normal Lua, although it will be slower.

It is always surprising to see people using my old mods, sorry this mod is no longer maintained.
