Good to see parachutes in the game they look and work good. The skunks are a nice addition too. A couple of questions came to mind though.

1. Are the pearls going to be used for anything, or maybe I just haven't found out the use for them?
2. How about item names displayed above the health bar for the selected hotbar item?
3. In the achievement UI "Missing" is displayed instead of the numbers (ie: 23/45) when some achievements are highlighted.

Keep up the good work, this is my favorite subgame.

I've been on liberty land server briefly and tried the mod locally too and the tab completion stuff didn't work for me either in the server nor locally.

Is there something that I need to do to activate the tab completion?

I looked at the code, and couldn't figure out how they do tab-completion...

@necron099
1. Pearls are currently useless, although you can use them for trading ;)
2. I am planning on doing that; unified_inventory already does that AFAIK
3. Just show "Missing" instead of progress?

Yea, it just shows "Missing" instead of the progress display. As far as I can tell dignode and times are correct, but for some reason it does not display the progress. The one that comes to mind is digging stone is listed as "Missing" with no progress displayed.


Edit: The only ones that aren't displayed as "Missing" are 'First Join' (Gotten) and 'Like Clockwork' (which lists the progress correctly).

Are you using the latest git? When achievements were first added, they showed progress wrong.

If you're using latest git, try doing "/giveme default:flower", then placing it. That should give the achievement Gardener and Master Gardener progress.

Sorry, I forgot I started a new game right before I posted. Anyway I started another one and did a lot of /giveme. The few that still showed "Missing"...

Digging stone (I mined default:stone)
Digging trees (I had 3 different types of trunks in my inventory)
Crafting a book (used /giveme for the ingredients and then crafted it)
Crafting a compass (ditto)
Crafting a door (ditto)
Crafting a bed (ditto)

All the others showed as "Gotten" or the progress bar showed.

I checked; the compass and bed is my fault.
Try latest git, see if those work now.. groups seem to be broken for achievements.

Beds, and compass now work.

With books I changed the init file line 57 from placenode to craftitem and got it to work.

The compass needle E and W seemed reversed. It differed from what debug was telling me (F5) (when debug was telling me I was facing W the compass read E) I'll test that again in the morning.

EDIT:
Yeah, when you face north and turn east the needle will point west.

Hmm, is the compass problem yours? It seems to work fine for me...
Also, I fixed the books the way you did(It was a typo, you're right, it's supposed to be craftitem), so they should work now.

At long last: I live to see a Minetest game that's solidly designed! It has a nice selection of mods that work together, an artistic texture style that covers everything, and a clear direction we can expect it to go in. Most games are either extremely simplistic and empty, either blindly throw in a load of mods. Pixture is visibly trying to combine mobs, armor, weather, and others in a good default playable setup. Certainly this will be at the top of my preference list!

There is of course critique as well, and obvious bad sides that stand out; For one thing, I don't really like the current sounds... such as the footsteps which sound like you're walking on some weird wood-like material all the time. I also hate the existing ambience mod... I believe that ambient sound effects for water / birds / crickets / caves / etc should be put in ABM's and played directionally by a node, rather than an audio file randomly popping into your ear and giving a fake effect. Also I didn't get to see a lot of mobs... but other than the sheep I think some could use better visuals, like the exploding Bulbasaur thingie. Lastly, I can't seem to find any snow biomes... deserts are also rare.

Thanks for the praise ;)

Same. I'm planning on recording my own, but I don't have a good microphone, and I'm bad at audio editing. Thanks ahead of time for anybody that can replace them with better ones :)

I already have a setup for directional ambiance, it's in mods/default/player.lua, I just haven't used it for birds chirping/caves, etc. yet.

There's no snow biomes, it's supposed to be dynamic with weather, but it's disabled right now(Too buggy and slow)

Ever since I read this, I wondered how long it would take for someone to achieve what c55 was describing. You're raising my hopes. I haven't played the game yet, though, but it does look pretty damn good. Have you drawn for video games before ?

Anyway, I don't know how the game feels, how you developed it or what you intend to do with it so this might not be helpful at all, but here's a piece of advice : decide on what is the lowest standard at which you will consider your game done, and won't feel too bad if you release it without ever working on it again ; then prioritize getting the game to that standard as soon as possible. In other words, try to make a complete game fast, a game you wouldn't mind leaving as-is, then start improving it and adding features. People tend to prioritize working on features where progress is visible and feels proportional to the amount of work put in them, and save the boring uninspiring-but-necessary features for last, and run out of motivation before finishing them. Please avoid that mistake ^^

Also, since you seem intent on not making a game compatible with mods made for minetest_game, I'd advise you to go ahead and make another executable if you think you need it (for instance, if you want to implement a non-default UI). Your game seems unique enough to justify it.

Re: [Game] Pixture

I originally didn't want to make it incompatible with minetest_game, and I started with a more tree-like approach, where larger groups of items come first in names, ie. default:ingot_steel instead of default:steel_ingot.

I'm still trying to fix some backend bugs/problems, and there's still some that I know of, but I think that it's pretty much complete already.

I hope you like the game :)

Rename the subgame folder to "pixture", instead of "pixture-master", this is a common issue, it also happends a lot with mods.
This applies here too: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=10360

The only mod I know called "armor" is one that it's really outdated, and not compatible with minetest anymore, if it's that mod, don't use it, and install 3d_armor.
If you are using 3d_armor, and you renamed it to "armor", rename it back to "3d_armor"
Or is it a mod from the subgame? I don't really know :p

If you want to try the game online you can log at pixture.quelcom.xyz:30000 server. You should read the signs at spawn (something that almost nobody does anyway :-D) and ask for interact.
