Good mod - not having to manually choose my destination every time I want to use a telepad is very convenient.

Just a few thoughts/requests:
Would it be possible to make some way to pick which direction you are facing when you arrive? If you put the travel point in an alcove, similar to the screen shot, it would be nice to arrive not facing the wall.

Second: perhaps you could give the receiver pads a purpose by making them configurable as an alternative to using chat commands. (So, you right click on a receiver pad, it gives a formspec that you can use to name the pad, and it gets autosaved as a travel point. Or just leave it unconfigured and use it for decorative purposes. Kind of along the lines of how the transport pad itself works.

Could you please add digiline support? It'd be cool to make a Star Trek style transporter room :-P

Hey I'm having an issue with this mod. When I load it in the game crashes with the following error in the init.lua file.

2017-10-09 22:32:15: ERROR[Main]: /home/ubuntu/.minetest/mods/travelpoints/init.lua:75: attempt to call field 'execute' (a nil value)
2017-10-09 22:32:15: ERROR[Main]: stack traceback:
2017-10-09 22:32:15: ERROR[Main]: /home/ubuntu/.minetest/mods/travelpoints/init.lua:75: in main chunk

I looked at that line and did some troubleshooting of my own. It seems to be a problem with the os.execute function specifically. Other os functions work properly in this file if I test them before line 75 and os.execute works just fine in other mods.

Did I do something wrong when loading this mod? I followed your listed instructions and my Minetest version is 0.4.16. What am I missing?

And just to be clear, I've tried creating that directory manually, and that does allow the mod to load, but then the game dies when I try to place a teleport pad. I'm guessing there are other parts of the mod that are impacted by os.execute not working (or by whatever is causing os.execute not to work).

os.execute may be blocked by mod security. I think you can add travelpoints to trusted mods in some minetest setting.

OMG that worked!! I had to turn of security in general (listing travelpoints specifically didn't do it), but it works now :)

Thanks so much, Hybrid Dog!!!

Warning: it's dangerous to turn off mod security. See: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=17601
Never turn it off on a publicly accessible server. Turning it off in singleplayer is ok if you trust all the mods
Instead this mod should be patched.

I would love to try this but I get an error and I don't know if this mod is active or abandoned...
2017-11-23 05:40:19: ERROR[Main]: ModError: Failed to load and run script from C:\Users\Admin\Desktop\Block-Ed-0.4.16-win64\bin\..\mods\travelpoints\init.lua:

line 75 is in the init file is "os.execute("mkdir \"" .. travelpoints.travelpoints_tables .. "\"")"

Is this something I can fix?
everything can be a learning experience...

Yes ... I tried a lot, but I think somebody needs to renew the mod and update it. I tried to find out, what is the difference between Mods that write to a file and Travelpoints and I saw some differences but do not know how to change the Mod.

Maybe it's used like this

Code: Select all

local insec_env = minetest.request_insecure_environment()
[…]
insec_env.os.execute([…]
Anyway, mods should avoid manually saving information in files because now modstorage is available.

in order to get this mod to work in windows, you need to manual create a folder named: travelpoints_tables in the world-folder of your game-world.

Second you also need to delete line 75
--os.execute("mkdir "" .. travelpoints.travelpoints_tables .. """)
otherwise it will still crash on windows systems

No ... there are too many thing, you need to do ... I already tried that

Hopefully some of the fork will work: https://github.com/RacsoRhodes/travelpoints/network
AFAIK Zeuner is paid to renew the Travelpoints-Mod.

Version 1.5

Corrected directory creation error.

Much thanks to Github user "ritschwumm" for the changes in this version, they pull requested these fixes back in August 2017 and I missed it until now.

Sorry for the near abandoned nature of this mod, I have not played Minetest since version 0.4.14.

I completely missed the addition of "minetest.mkdir" in Minetest version 0.4.13, os.execute() seems to have been deprecated in 0.4.16 for obvious security reasons which lead to the error messages.

Thanks for all the feedback, sorry for late response.

--Racso

1.5 2018-02-10
  • This version corrects the directory creation error that began with Minetest Version 0.4.16.
  • Thanks to GitHub user "ritschwumm" for the changes in this version.
  • init.lua - Method for world table directory creation updated from os.execute() to minetest.mkdir(). Older Minetest versions still supported through os.execute().
  • functions.lua/travelpoints.get_location() - Y axis capture corrected, no more transporting half inside a node.
  • init.lua/minetest.register_chatcommand("tpggo" - Fixed comment typo.
