Cool castle mod

Hello did you look in my secret wall and doors lua files for making secret passage in walls ?

My github : https://github.com/mimilus/castle

I like the idea of secret wall for the castle maybe you could use it.

If you will add mimilus's creations, then you better make this into a modpack.

Re: [Mod] Castles++ : Yet another fork [0.5] [castle] (Githu

by philipbenr » Sun Aug 10, 2014 20:16

I intend to remove the old pillars I made and add Glünggi's collumnia mod. I prefer that one much more.

Anyhow, my goal with this project is to revive my old castles mod. If you browse around, you will see that castles was originally made by me, Dan forked it, I worked on it with him, and he (sadly) left. :( Oh well. Still, I have found some other really nice mods that I think I will put in this mp. Dan's camo mod has the psuedo nodes that you can walk through. Anyway, I will add secret passageways and something of the sort.

I also made the recipe a bit awkward, so I think some of them I will change..

Thanks for looking.

Base game of the latest development version of Minetest and Carbone in the latest development version of Freeminer. Failed in both of them.

CraigyDavi has a fork of darkage:
https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?p=150997#p150997
It might be of interest to you, since it too deals with castles.

Yes, I am interested. Very much so. Forgot to add that to the Coming eventually section.

Right now, I am having problems with git on my computer, so I might be going over to Bitbucket from github; I am going to try to use mercurial, which is nicer, and hopefully works.

Edit:
I:
As for the workbench:
When you place it, I intend to have an npc standing next to it, 'mining it'. This is to achieve the effect that he is working on the workbench and is producing the objects on it. I love the idea and really want to do it, but it would take me a while because I don't know much about the npc mod. Anyhow, what do you think about the idea?

II:
I will be putting some releases of the mod in my dropbox and just use that until I have finished everything else.

Thank you for your work !

A modpack is a good idea for an "all-in-one" castle decorations ! :)

Might it be possible for you to post this modpack in the Freeminer forums too? Not much happens there these days.

Sure. I've noticed, in fact. After I do gardening decor. That is top on priority list.

Go find a version of old minetest game and get the doors mod out of that. The new minetest game (formerly minetest next) has a bad version of doors. In other words, I wrote this mod with the old doors as a dependency, and will only use that one for now. I might look into adding the new doors later, but I have something special coming out. It'll be here this weekend.

Hello Minetestforfun,

just tested this version and got the same error like you. I solved this issue by renaming the mods folder from "catles" to "castle" cause the debug complains about this:
Code: Select all
dofile(minetest.get_modpath("castle").."/pillars.lua")
and so on. You see, in the code the original mod name is used (castle) instead of the new name (castles).

When I did this, a new error occured and is about what philipbenr said.
Code: Select all
09:19:45: ERROR[main]: ========== ERROR FROM LUA ===========
09:19:45: ERROR[main]: Failed to load and run script from
09:19:45: ERROR[main]: ...\minetest-0.4.10-e5b4748-win32\bin\..\mods\castle\init.lua:

09:19:45: ERROR[main]: ======= END OF ERROR FROM LUA ========


I solved this issue by changing in the init.lua
Code: Select all
doors:register_door("castle:oak_door", {
and
Code: Select all
doors:register_door("castle:jail_door", {
into
Code: Select all
doors.register_door("castle:oak_door", {
and
Code: Select all
doors.register_door("castle:jail_door", {
.

First, yes, I am still very excited about working on this mod, so (duh) I am still working on it.

Yes, I am sorry for all the bugs, but I think that everything will be changed in time. For the doors, I will found the door api in the minetest_game the file "game_api.txt"

Also I have gotten halfway through changing the mod into a modpack, so there will be no more problems with dofile anymore...

Finally, I am saying this; All my mods are officially slowed, which means they are going to be moving at a slower development rate. I am going into my sophomore year of highschool, where I am taking a few advanced classes (Pre-calculus and Chemistry. Most everybody else is taking Algebra 2 and Biology.) and doing after school robotics (FRC robotics program) I'm sorry, but the development will be really slow, and I will seldom have time to work on this, as well as my other mod/packs and my subgame.

@ philipbenr
Much success for your highschool. (hehe, have to confess that I am a "most everybody", also took Biology but no! Mathematics and was nevertheless, a few years later, faced in my biology studies with both XD). Tyt and I am curious what you will add further.

@ Minetestforfun
I just tested it again. I dont know what else could be wrong. It´s just about changing the colon infront of "register_door" into a simple point because it was changed in the game as you can see here https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game/commit/584718a2a78aa56b9f7804481cd4143992f0e995#diff-8eb62e836e64c72a439c178d35c178a8L28.

Cool. I will take a look at that version. Also I will try and change the colons and get the whole thing finished as a modpack. and since I didn't have internet this last weekend, I will try and do that this next weekend.

I'm sorry. All my mods are suck. That is mostly because I don't get the time to do anything with them.
Just about every single mod I have posted is very very underdone and half baked. This is the best one mainly because Dan helped me out with it. But other than that, I do not have not many good mods. :(
Bad day if you could tell, but half of it is true.

philipbenr, would not it be better if you join the project of the mod "darkage (improved)" ?
Because the "contains" and "comes" sections are the same :)

Sorry, just a really bad morning. Anyhow, it's the weekend, and If I might get something done. I will get the doors stuff down, and finish the modpack transfer. I am also using Glunggi's columnia. That one has some nice aspects (more pillars, smart crafting recipes)

Also, I hope to add in the chandeliers as well. Anyhow, here is what I am thinking. I am just going to take the set of nodeboxes I have already made, add in a idea similar to RHR's lantern mod. (Small lanterns) Anyhow, I am just going to use worldedit, make a .mts schematic, and just use that instead of busting my brain trying to code it. I will also have streetlight schematics and maybe do some instabuild towers.
