Various functional and decorative riven-themed nodes :-)

door1: plain stick door
door2: user-locked gates (owner has exclusive edit/dig privs)
door3: password-locked gates (owner has exclusive edit/dig privs)

linkingbook/plinkingbook: name the book and teleport to locations without giving the coords away. plinkingbook only works for its owner. So you can set traps using the different books.

a powerful tool (digs fast, lasts forever), and like i said many decorative and even musical elements.

/givemes only. there are aliases at the eof for most of the nodes

I've always been intrigued by these screenshots. I wanted to check these out firsthand, then I discovered the buildings in the following folder:
C:\Users\PC\Games\Minetest6617B\minetest-0.4.dev-20120606-c57e508-win32\mods\minetest\madblocks\buildings
They are also in the multinode mod (in case they get removed from the madblocks mod)

Awesome! I just used the /load filename (without the .bld extension) and did a /paste and they were in my world. There is a slight issue, the things like pictures that usually lay flat are flipped up 90 degrees, but that is easilly fixed.

Hmmm, I took the latest nightly build minetest-0.4.dev-20120606-c57e508-win32, added only RivenTest to the mod folder and got the following error when I click play on the world I just created.

this is where the error is coming from
Code: Select all
29:        sounds = default.node_sound_wood_defaults(),

Yep that did the trick. Thanks.

Still odd, either we both get the error or neither of us, this is probably a bug. Im glad it works now though :-)

Cool. I had the same default issue for Multinode or Bookmarks. You might want to check both.

i fixed the multinode one, though bookmarks doesnt use anything from default, what kind of error message are you getting for bookmarks?

You should be good. I just couldn't remember which one had the default issue as I fixed it. I'm pretty sure it was Multinode

yeah anything that used sounds from default had that problem under win32 clients :-/ but now it works :-)

@mauvebic: Dude. How could you get rid of the blue sock puppet? That was simply the coolest avatar *EVER*. Spock doesn't even come close, even with the beard.

Maybe its in my head but i feel like fences got bigger and clunkier some while back so i stopped using them.

Today i came up with a more elegant minimalist solution to keeping people from falling off narrow walkways:

Nice, sometimes the fences are to big to look good.

P.s. I don't react every time you produce something, but the screenshots of your works really look great.

it balances out the negative comments from other people (most of which i never really understand) lol :-)

Here are the corner pieces (only one corner, up to the user to figure out facedir, otherwise id have to create 2x nodes and insert an on_punch switch mechanism that doesn't really save time or resources)

What about a simplified version of pipes like this:
Image
Where the pipes are square and strung together, and every other pipe is an L-shaped pipe (to connect to the walkway).
Over the years I only ever bought 3 games for my PC, SimCity2000, Ultima VIII, and Riven.

They should be a rusty metal grey & brown splotchy texture like the image.

Yeah i suppose i could hollow them out :-) i made them "full" because i wanted to use the black/yellow caution stripes texture on one of the sides, but your idea would look more riven :-)

A bit more like this? i raised them by 0.2 as well though i reduced the size of the support piece

Image

i wrote the railings into the staircase mod (which ill have to update) even though they probably look awful on staircases lol but at least theyll be matching pieces for all 5 staircases.

edit: made the handrails slightly wider than the rest:
Image

inner corner pieces:

much safer:

catwalks:
