This actually happens (happened to me).
For this to happen forcefully, place 1 sheep in a fenced area with 1 block.
The sheep moves backward.

I feel like it could be a problem with the collision box of the two fences in the corner and the sheep. I imagine, that the sheep doesn't know which box of the two fences counts. And so it has alternating a collision with the one fence, "gets pushed away/steps back from the fence" into the collision box of the other fence... and then the other way round. So it vibrates through the fences.

But I dont know enough of the programming of this mod, so it is just a thought.

For the RAM / lag question: It even happend in "singleplayer" on my desktop pc, it is a 3,4 Ghz Quadcore Xeon with 8 GB RAM. The multiplayer-minetest.server is a raspi3 with one player (me), just waiting for action - enough RAM free and no real cpu usage. The database is stored on an nfs filesystem (the sd card is to slow).

- Added 'mob_difficulty' setting in minetest.conf (defaults to 1.0) which multiplies mob health and damage when hit.
So, do I have to go into my minetest.conf file and manually add the line, "mob_difficulty=2.0"?

abcd_z - yep, to increase mob difficulty levels add that line to minetest.conf:

mob_difficulty = 2.0

Tenplus1, is there a way to get a list of mobs using the API? A command I can type so I can find the name of a Mob I want to make a bit rarer in my game.

Ed: sadly no but that sounds like a good idea... for now you'd have to go through code and see which mods are registered, but will look into this.

Thanks. I'm not afraid to read a few lua files, but given the number of mobs I've installed... ;)

TenPlus1 wrote:Anxious: It's not just the spawn rate you have to change, that only makes them spawn more in an area, but there is also spawn number as well which is usually set to 1 or 2 and that means only a certain amount of active objects are allowed inside that map block at any one time and if it exceeds that, dont spawn a mob. e.g. if a mob already exists, dropped items, itemframe, sign, these contain entities which can affect mob spawning. Will work on this soon also.
I want to make sure I understand the setting, and perhaps api.txt could bare an update to clarify: 0 disables. A higher number implies a 1 in X chance, IE setting foomobs:bar_chance = 1000 means "Set bar's chance of spawning to 1 in 1000"

Also, spawn number: How do I increase that, is that a global or mob variable I can poke in my game's minetest.conf?

Mob spawn chance setting is 0 to disable and 1+ to spawn every 1 in (number set)... So if you do:

mob_animals:cow = 1000

...then you will spawn 1 cow every 1000 grassy nodes generated, every 30 seconds... and as for spawn number, that's hard-coded into the mob definition and cannot be changed (yet).

Re: [Mod] Mobs Redo [1.32] [mobs]

by TenPlus1 » Post

Updated to version 1.32:

- New spawning check added that actually counts mob type in area
- Mob chance and area numbers can be changed from minetest.conf

e.g. add this line to change chicken spawn chance to 1000 and numbers to 5 per mapblock area:

Code: Select all

mobs_animal:chicken = 1000,5
..or to simply change rate:

Code: Select all

mobs_animal:chicken = 1000
..and for spawn numbers only:

Code: Select all

mobs_animal:chicken = ,5

The attack change is limiting and frustrating, and it's not obvious how long it will take for the next attack to be effective.

Additionally, making an attack switch from "not-effective" to "effective" within the space of a split-second makes no logical sense from an in-game perspective. Attack capability should restore over time, not be a binary switch.

When Minecraft switched from spammable attacks to a recovery time, it did two things different from your approach: first, the damage done was decreased by the amount of time since the last attack, and even at its weakest an attack could still so *some* damage (20% base damage if the second attack took place 0.0 seconds later). Second, minecraft included indicators of the attack strength: the height of the weapon and a bar that would refill with the weapon strength.

I would strongly prefer bringing back the old spammable behavior, but if your mind is set against it, please at least change it so that strength regains over time, a fully-depleted attack can still do some damage, and there is some indicator on-screen of the current attack strength.

Having to guess when the next attack will be valid for arbitrary game-balancing reasons is limiting and frustrating.

abcd_z: I do like the idea of 20% damage if tool attack hasn't charged back up yet.

What about the other two: attack strength visual indicators and non-binary strength regeneration?
