This mod appears to make the world of Minetest concave. One thing I did notice was that caves above the world were fully lit and did not have shadows.

Version 0.1.3 is at github, new screenshot in first post.
Auto-orientating apple trees and pine trees added. Each tree detects which of the 6 directions has the largest fall in 'density' and grows in that direction.

Thanks Inocudom that was a mistake left in from testing, i had disabled the line:
Code: Select all
vm:set_lighting({day=0, night=0})

So un-comment that line or better update to version 0.1.3.

Version 0.1.4 at github.
New screenshot in first post.
I added cliffs / faults that show off the sandstone strata.
Perlin noise for terrain is now a mix of 2 similar noises that have their 'spread' or 'scale' distances in the 'golden ratio' 1.618, the intent being to break up any obvious scale to the terrain and the slightly gridlike look of perlin noise from above and in map images.

This is cool, but before I download I have a question. Does the world have gravity? Can you walk on the surface the whole way around, or have to hop up the concave?

This question comes up a lot ... Minetest camera orientation and gravity are fixed (as far as i know it would be a major rewrite of the engine, perhaps someone will go on to make a new more universal space-capable game engine with 6 gravity directions).

New version 0.2.0 is at github.
I found and eliminated unnecessary processing, now mostly 2 to 4 seconds per chunk.
I added the temperature / humidity 8 biome system of paragen(v7), but plants and some trees are still missing.
The version at github was pushed in the optional 'flat realm' mode (surface at y = 168), for the original flexy realm enable line 266 and disable line 267.
A 10km radiius dyson sphere is also possible by enabling lines 268, 269 and disabling line 266 (teleport to 0, 5000, 0).

Since a day ago there has been a 3 noise terrain shape, with a blend of rough and smooth areas.

EDIT version 0.2.1 with bugfixes and savanna trees.

Good Job paramat! Keep working on the mapgen/luavoxel/what ever it is you are using and make even more amazing mods.

Version 0.2.3 now at github.
Now 5 realm types, added vertical and inverted, select by editing the true/false parameters.

Version 0.2.4.
Non-flowing water (range = 0,) so no more invisible nodes holding back the water and also preventing building or papyrus near water. Also you can now enable cavegen without the threat of vast buggy waterfalls everywhere.
Tree direction is now auto-set per realm type ... although i have just realised a mistake in that for dyson sphere ... fix commit coming soon *:/

*** EDIT
Until then fix is edit line 402 to this:
Code: Select all
if tree then
    if flat or sphere then
    treedir = 3

Of course this is only correct for the lowest quarter of the dyson sphere.

Version 0.2.5.

Version 0.2.6.
Oops my mistake, 'liquid_range = 0' water sources were spreading due to 'liquid_renewable = true'.
So now back to non-flowing water, no airlike nodes, no need to disable cavegen.

Grasses added to deciduous forest, savanna and grasslands.
