Sam II and my player capes model just got intergrated into minetest_game!

How do I make a cape?

The above red section shows where the cape must be placed (it is double sided and the sides mirror the edges), while the result of a good cape; shown here;

Great! I'm looking forward to nice new cape-wearing player models :-)

The cape inside the player texture will break a lot of player textures. Since this area was not used before many creators of textures just draw something random in it.

Maybe it could be done this way:
Use the "body back" section for the cape and the "body front" could be used for the back of the character too. Because both (front and back) look very similar, I think nobody will see a difference.

We must not let the breaking of textures stop improvements. In fact:

The above conversation took place in addi's skins database topic. If a cape can be made, then so can that which is mentioned above.

Wow. Looks like someone took my tip and made a custom badge. Awesome.


Also, nice add-on...

So next version will be 0.4.10, not 0.5?

The dot is not a decimal point. Each of the three numbers is completely separate and represents a different level of change. I don't know Minetest's policy for what kinds of changes increment what numbers, but version 0.5.0 should not be expected until there is a change more significant than the updates we've seen to 0.4.x so far.

I heard in the IRC that it will be when it breaks compatibility with everything.

AFAIK, celeron-55 said that 0.4.x is for modding API. So I think we'll switch to 0.5.x when it is complete.

I don't see how just adding capes is an improvement. Now, if we could use different player models and have some in-game facility for changing them like we do with skins, i'd call that an improvement :-)

so, here is a question, what if you only want to make a partial cape? how will it behave then?

Look on the MT skin database: http://minetest.fensta.bplaced.net/ Take a look at some of the skins on page 3

okay, that works better. however, I do think there could be a major improvement. for non-square capes, there are side pixels missing. could it be made so that for capes that aren't square, they still have the textures for the sides?

I think this looks good, but I also think that it is not important. More important woulb be for example adding new bioms or the possibilities to change the settings ingame!
Hope sombody like my ideas?

In-game settings has been suggested but is yet to be merged into the game. - https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/546
Biomes would be cool but I think there is more focus on getting mapgen v7 done.
