Yeah, as my screenshots show, this subgame is old:

The comedic value of my videos is how abysmal they are: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5cyeM ... YTfYFlih_A

I'd shelved the game and had decided to wait for Minetests features to mature a bit more before continuing again. Since I'm on vacation I think its a good time to take a look at things and reacquaint myself with Minetest. I was a bit surprised to see some fairly recent posts.

Obviously I'm a bit out of the loop with whats changed in last couple of years. So it's going to take a bit for me to get back up to speed.

After a quick search I'm assuming you're referring to jps Crafting Guide mod? I wholeheartedly agree it's an essential mod.

2) I can't break trees in suvival

That's by game design. I always felt tree punching was a bit silly. Instead sticks are gathered from leaves, and stone for stone tools is crafted from gravel blocks. The stone axe is crafted with the standard recipe.

3) Mapgen alias for river water is missing

The last release of Decoblocks was made before river water was implemented. But it looks I had fixed that issue in my development version.

1) Tall grass and grass block color don't match well

I agree. It's an overdue change.

2) Stone footstep sound sounds strange

Yes the sounds in the game are terribly neglected. I should just go with Minetests default sounds. It's not like I'm planning on doing anything mindblowing in the sound department.

3) No listring support

Oh cool. Shift clicking. Looks like I'd have to update the kiln and default gui in order to get that working.

4) Tree growth algorithm is weird (trees appear out of nowhere)

That was my hilariously broken way of getting custom tree spawning to work. If I recall I used invisible tree cuttings as decoration with a grow time of zero. Since then I'd changed the trees to schematic files that are spawned as a decoration.

After a quick test run it looks like leaf decay has changed a bit. Seems nodeupdate has been depreciated and I get a crash when it's called. I'll have to do some more poking to see if anything else has broken.

I do have a list of new features I'd like to implement. Some I'd already added such as new wood types and trees, expanded brick options, some other small things. I'm not sure when I'll put out a new release, but I am now working on it.
