[Mod] Ferns [0.1.2] [ferns]

by Mossmanikin » Post

FeRNS

+ Spoiler

This mod is about those archaic plants belonging to the division Pteridophyta.
It has three types (genera) of ferns:

  • Lady-Fern (Athyrium)
+ Spoiler
  • Tree Fern (Dicksonia)
+ Spoiler
  • Horsetail (Equisetum)
+ Spoiler
  • Giant Tree Fern (Dicksonia)
+ Spoiler
Don't worry, this mod is only pseudo-scientific. But it's close to reality (whatever this means in a game like this).
I took into account: the circumstances under which the plants grow and what you can do with them.

Oh, this is a wonderful thing to add to Minetest's jungles.

Would you be able to create textures of this for VanessaE's HDX texture packs sometime? You only need to make the highest resolution version of each texture. The textures of her texture packs, for the most part, come from free photographs on the internet.

Sometime, yes, I'd love to. :)

You continue to amaze me. Amazing job, you have learned minetest modding very quickly, and you probably know more than I do by this point. Keep up the good work! Also, here is a happy little face from github. Image

Thanks. :)
I doubt I know more about modding, maybe I'm just more into the 24/7-try-and-error thing. ;)
And... I love your subtle way of telling me to put something on github... I really do! :D

This is a great mod and I've added it to my standard set of mods for all my singleplayer worlds.

I noticed, though, that when used with Splizard's "Snow" mod, the "Ferns" mod won't produce.

Is there a config setting or lua line that needs to be tweaked so "Ferns" and "Snow" can be used together?

Thanks for another great mod, Mossmanikin. ;)


UPDATE 2013_11_10:
It appears Splizard's "Snow" mod also stops VanessaE's "MoreTrees" and "PlantLife" mods. (Ferns and MoreTrees both depend on PlantLife.) Vanessa updates her mods quite regularly while Splizard hasn't updated "Snow" in several months. This leads me to beleive that if there were a solution, Vanessa would have found it by now.

So the choice comes down to a large variety of beautiful plants or snow... I choose a large variety of beautiful plants. ;)

The more recent github releases of Minetest 0.4.7 do have snow and dirt_with_snow though they don't produce ice. Still workable, though. Use WorldEdit to set a blanket of snow nodes above an area and let it fall to create a "default" Minetest snow biome.

I had the same issue with other mods of this kind. In a new world with undergrowth added, there was no undergrowth occouring as long as I had the snow mod enabled.

Nores alternate mapgen also comes with very nice snowy regions. Snow there even piles up at diffrent heights.

I hope there's a way to make both mods work in the same world. I havn't looked deeper into it so far.

Will this mod be supported by the new waving plants shader?

On my server, I have an "extra" mod in place that adds the waving effect to most of this mod's plants. I skipped the horsetail and giant fern "tree" tops because those would need a different shader formula/algorithm that has not yet been coded.

Just add "waving = 1," (without the quotes) to the node defs for the plants that need it.

I'll test it and add it, if I like it.

Re: [Mod] Ferns [0.1.2] [ferns]

Hi, on my minetest server (0.4.10), this mod crashes the server quite often (about 2-3 times a day) with this error:

Code: Select all

18:58:27: ERROR[main]: ERROR: An unhandled exception occurred: /srv/minetest/world/worldmods/ferns/ferns/horsetail.lua:86: attempt to index local 'ret' (a nil value)
18:58:27: ERROR[main]: stack traceback:
18:58:27: ERROR[main]: /srv/minetest/world/worldmods/ferns/ferns/horsetail.lua:86: in function
So I've disabled it for now. I've created a GitHub ticket at https://github.com/Mossmanikin/ferns/issues/1.
Sadly, the mod seems abandoned. Can anyone else find the error and patch it?

Indeed, has Mossmanikin left Minetest for eternity. I wish VanessaE would add all of his plants to her plantlife modpack, for she has added so much to her homedecor mod recently.

I've never run into the crash described in this post. I placed nearly 100 of those horsetail ferns in my test world and could not get the mod to crash at all. Looking at the code, I can't see a reason for it to crash here, either.

Are you sure your ferns mod is actually up-to-date? It's possible that maybe you're running an old release version and not a git copy - releases are always older and often lack fixes applied only in git.
