[0.4.11] Node highlighting

by RealBadAngel » Post

Minetest has now different way to show node selections: node highlighting.
To use it put:
enable_node_highlighting = true
in your config.
It will replace selection boxes with halo around selected node.
By default halo is white, with some slight color phasing.
To change the color put a file named halo.png filled with color of your choice in your texture pack folder. Resolution 16x16 is enough.
Enjoy!

That feature is in Voxelands (formerly Minetest Classic,) but I would love to see it in Minetest. What an improvement.

Edit the texture yourself if you want it more transparent. He clearly said you could change it.

Beautiful! Since I started playing minetest, I've always seen lines for node selection, that will be a big change in the gameplay. I'm gonna try it now. Very good work!

It is a lot easier to compile on Linux than Windows.

It is very hard to compile on Windows.

You can get the latest features by using an unofficial build: viewforum.php?f=42

No need to compile it self. There are about 6 diffrent windows in-dev builds and the half of them already contains this feature.

Ok well how about if you want to edit the source code to test out different things? And do not say use a VM. My computer is slow enough as it is. :(

You are stuffed. Windows is painful enough without having to compile CPP code.

Only thing more painful than compiling CPP on Windows is trying to remove it. I swear 8.1 was actively fighting me making a KUbuntu USB stick the other night. >.<

8.1 does not agree with my Xubuntu installation. But I kind of like 8.1 more than Xubuntu anyway (partly because Xubuntu's drivers for my wifi card suck, and I need to recompile it everytime there is an update. Now, it won't even boot up because the dang drivers got corrupted or something)
