Hi

I could not follow this topic since some time. ( For reference : viewtopic.php?pid=131202#p131202 )

I'll try the latest version of your mod and report back if this solves my issue. Thanks for your work.

For your information I'm using the latest release of minetest : 0.4.9 stable

Sorry for the soooo long delay.

I'm not sure, how it's now, but back in the 0.4.5 days these was caused by the "same mesh=same light level" approach. So if one mob was in the shadows/underwater then all others which shared the same mesh started to blink or went dark grey...

Hi

I just give a try with version 1.1 beta.

The sheeps are funny :D

The bug I had with 1.0 is still there. I observed it with sheeps. I found they are lots of sheeps in a very small and delimited area. This seems happen when I'm moving with free mode enabled (I'm the administrator of my server).

If I logon during the night, the framerate is below 4 FPS even when I stay in a house. I did not tried to go out, because I did not wanted to be killed. The game is unplayable and I could not protect myself agains zombies and ghosts.

I'll create a new world to do some tests need.ed.

I also noticed there are some sheeps in caves, and sometimes they are black, probabli due to the same bug described earlier.

Perhaps those in caves fell down there. As for the black sheep: They might be stuck in blocks. Try to dig those blocks (most of the time it's dirt), and they'll turn white again.

I observed an "invasion" of sheep as well. There where quite a lot roaming around even after a short time.

And: There needs to be a way to sheer them without causing panic to the poor sheep!

Btw, real black sheep might be something new. Most mobs mobs do have sheep of some kind...but none has a black one :-) I don't want those crazy thrown-in-a-pot-with-dye-sheep from Minecraft. Just the usual colors that come naturally with sheep :-)

Actually there's ~15% chance for a black sheep to spawn naturally...

Isn't that because you've left and the mod tried to getpos() of your player?
Try to get hurt and then Ctrl+C your client to confirm.

Angel left the game AFTER being punched by the ghost, so it does appear to be something else.

Message about leaving doesn't show the exact moment I leave even in singleplayer. And Angel had logged out just 2 seconds after was punched.
Server lags + Lua execution speed + ping time could've make server think that one is still online even if one doesn't for 2 seconds.

I'm not the one to tell a developer anything regarding any code written for or used with MT.
I just had this kind of problems when was working on my version of tnt (although that was around a year ago). And when tnt punched me I was getting this kind of error and then was kicked out.

Anyway, there' should be a check for that "p" variable not being nil.

I took a look at the code, but I'm not too familiar with the method which you are using to spawn the creatures. When I had the issue with the sheep spawning, it was because I set fast mode on and flying mode. This was on a server which is normally set to survival mode. My son was lost and I was flying around looking for him to help him get back. It doesn't appear that the limit is actually being used for some reason. You may try to keep an internal count and check for the limit prior to calling the 'spawn' function and a safety check in the spawn function.

Pressing the key F5 gives your coordinates up left of the screen.

Thanks, but that wasn't the issue. I don't want to go completely off topic here or anything, but my son is 4 (: and he dug himself underground and got lost without another pickaxe. I was looking for his name so I could go dig him out. I did come up with a teleport mod which helps now in that situation.

Hi

I wonder if the mod is affected by another. Will try on a new world without other plugin than Creatures.

I tried to understand the code of remove_creatures, without success. Are the creatures spawned saved somewhere to be re-spawned when someone is near of them ?

The flying mode may be the cause of my bug..

EDIT : On a new world with only Creatures mod v1.0 (not 1.1) I cannot reproduce the issue I described. I also tried to move fast with fly mode without success. There are only a few creatures spawned, enough to make the game freaky :)

This is a good mod Blockmen, maybe you could add more animals? also the sheep needs to drop something like a leg of lamb when you kill it. Also you can't replenish your health bar with the rotten flesh in the "Better HUD" mod that you made, it would be good if that could be done also :)

I had some crashes and the client said that there is a problem with the line 323 of sheep.lua, which is the one for the jump of the sheep...
Can anyone tell me what I have to do?

Is there any way I could have a spawner that will spawn more than one zombie at a time? For instance, place one spawner, and that spawner will make sure there are always x amount of zombies in the area? Or just have it spawn x amount and disappear?

It is probably already installed. It's in minetest_game.

I will post an update next time, but until then not using the mod is the best way to prevent crashes i guess.
