[Mod] Surprise blocks [0.3] [tsm_surprise]

by Wuzzy » Fri Jun 06, 2014 16:34

Name: Surprise blocks [tsm_surprise]

Description: This little mod adds a new block to Minetest: The surprise block! This is a block with a question mark on it. It contains a little surprise in it. If you mine it (or it gets destroyed by a different means), one or more low-grade items may drop out of it. The block spawns on the world just slightly floating above the ground. It looks like this:
Image
(The texture is animated)

Download: http://repo.or.cz/minetest_tsm_surprise ... a822ce.zip

Git repository page: http://repo.or.cz/minetest_tsm_surprise.git
License of everything: WTFPL
Works in Minetest 0.4.16 or later.
Depends on: Treasurer.
To be usable, this mod also needs at least one so-called treasure registration mod (TRM). You find some of these in the linked thread. Without any TRM, the surprise blocks simply don’t know what they should contain and therefore are always empty.
Optional dependencies: intllib, doc_items

My personal todo list:
  • Improve spawning (base it on perlin noise or something like that)

Lucky Blocks for Minetest Nicely done.
I will try my best at making a Texture.

To get something, you need:
  • tsm_surprise
  • treasurer
  • at least one TRM
  • the dependencies of that TRMs (all TRMs are dependent)

TRMs are mods which “register” item types of some to the treasurer mod so the mod knows which treasures to pick from and how valuable they are.
For starters, try trm_default_example for some items of the default mod. (it is bundled with treasurer)
For items of other mods, see here:

This mods works with other subgames, too (here: ethereal):

The block is cracky and can therefore be broken with pickaxes (for example).

  • Collect more ideas? xD

I was trying to use a garbage who 10 + uploaded, but it never works. But this surprise block works really fine. Thank you. :). I like these blocks.

ParaklataChotou: Does lucky_blocks bring up any errors when you use them ?

Hello. Well, the surprise blocks are working fine. But lucky blocks are good for single player. It's not a good idea enable on server. It's a good mod that you've made, but it's a little bit shocking.

But it's in an specified area. It's not in the whole server. And I've played Xanadu. Beautiful world, nice work about etherial redo. I like it.

Wuzzy, I have several TRMs installed, but every surprise block I break is empty. Is there a particular dir in my minetest game's tree I should place the TRM in, or is there a config flag I'm missing? I have the mods connected to each TRM installed.
I'm a writer who tinkers with code on occasion. I play minetest when insomnia makes the writing hard.

toby109tt: You don't need anyone's permission to create texture packs for anything.

EdShouldBeInBed: Oh, this is too bad. It works for me. Can you give me a list of the mods you have active? Also, what version of Treasurer do you use?

I guess the entire Treasurer thing needs a rework sooner or later. Especially the TRMs I released are pretty much outdated. :-/ Also, the core Treasurer mod is technically still WIP, so don't expect too much. I haven't developed it since ages. Boy, I have so many different projects to maintain, it's crazy. XD
