When I googled for it, I found a response from MVRDV where they claim to have not intended it to look like 1/2 WTC, but what I found rather incredible is that they claimed to not even recognize the similarity (I figured most of the world saw those images, it was a pretty big event).

Hmm i wonder if some idiots have actually complained the design is in bad taste? Almost certainly :)
I see things the other way around ... due to 9/11 people are now making associations whenever they see 2 towers with something happening part way up.
I'm very much into modern architecture and MVRDV are one of my favourite design studios. Some of their stuff looks suitable for generative architecture techniques.

I have to give points to MVRDV though, this is the most complicated thing i've built yet, I can't imagine what the real thing will be like to build.

Windows are done (several 1K stacks lol) - still got fix internal walls in the "cloud" part, do the balconies and rooftop terraces with greenery, two stairwells and get rid of those shadows. The next project will be simpler :p

I love that invert explosion. Not sure what the 3rd screenshot is. Are you going to nuke the meru tower?

I tried it myself and it took more like 20 seconds. Here is the relevant code:

Code: Select all

        local vm = minetest.get_voxel_manip()
        local p1, p2 = vm:read_from_map(
            {x=-IRON_TNT_RANGE+pos.x, y=-IRON_TNT_RANGE+pos.y, z=-IRON_TNT_RANGE+pos.z},
            {x=IRON_TNT_RANGE+pos.x, y=IRON_TNT_RANGE+pos.y, z=IRON_TNT_RANGE+pos.z}
        )
        local va = VoxelArea:new{MinEdge=p1, MaxEdge=p2}
        local data = vm:get_data()
        for x=-IRON_TNT_RANGE,IRON_TNT_RANGE do
        for y=-IRON_TNT_RANGE,IRON_TNT_RANGE do
        for z=-IRON_TNT_RANGE,IRON_TNT_RANGE do
            if x*x+y*y+z*z <= IRON_TNT_RANGE * IRON_TNT_RANGE + IRON_TNT_RANGE then
                local i = va:index(pos.x+x, pos.y+y, pos.z+z)
                --activate_if_tnt(data[i], {x=pos.x+x,y=pos.y+y,z=pos.z+z}, pos, IRON_TNT_RANGE)
                data[i] = c_air
            end
        end
        end
        end
        vm:set_data(data)
        vm:write_to_map()
        vm:update_map()
Make sure that c_air is defined.
Also the mapblock sending takes long, you are faster when you just rejoin the server (or restart singleplayer).

A "small" part to a much larger project that I hope to complete some time soon. EDIT! I've come to the conclusion that this'll take a week or so. There's going to be four towers, each comprised of seven layers and a glass roof. The seven layers will be as followed:

22 blocks
20 blocks
18 blocks
16 blocks
14 blocks
12 blocks
10 blocks

...And then each tower will be capped by triangular, obsidian glass roof. The four towers will be connected by halls that will be eighty-six blocks in length...at an unknown height of blocks. I have no idea what'll be in the center of this.

It looks like you are using the building_blocks mod. There is a newer version of it out than what you have. You might want to get it.

Your project looks like it could be interesting.

I'll look into updating and downloading that mod then as soon as possible.

Due to it looking a bit thin, I think I'm going to bump it up to seven towers instead of the original four. This is just a skeleton of the first tower, just to give an idea of what it'll look like.

So it's not necessary to set ignore everywhere?
You do have too much code in the time critical part.
Calling get_node() in there makes it a lot slower.
What does destroy_node() do? If it removes the node at the position then its not needed at all. Setting another value in the data of the vmanip is enough to replace a node.
I dont know how sound_play() behaves, it might be too slow.

You do have too much code in the time critical part.

What does destroy_node() do?
It's used to preserve the items which would be dropped (I disabled it so it did nothing.):

Code: Select all

local function describe_chest()
    if math.random(5) == 1 then return "You nuked. I HAVE NOT!" end
    if math.random(10) == 1 then return "Hehe, I'm the result of your explosion hee!" end
    if math.random(20) == 1 then return "Look into me, I'm fat!" end
    if math.random(30) == 1 then return "Please don't rob me. Else you are as evil as the other persons who took my inventoried stuff." end
    if math.random(300) == 1 then return "I'll follow you until I ate you. Like I did with the other objects here..." end
    return "Feel free to take the nuked items out of me!"
end



local function set_chest(p) --add a chest if the previous one is full
    local pos = p
    while minetest.env:get_node({x=pos.x, y=pos.y-1, z=pos.z}).name == "air" do
        pos.y=pos.y-1
    end

Maybe math.random causes the lags.
Is it faster if I use PseudoRandom?
math.random() shouldnt be a problem, you should rather not use minetest.get_node() at all. You could instead check the content ID of the chest.

Now that would be a good nether. Add a couple evels above it and put it underground and it would look like a real biome

I had to use GIMP else it would bee too dark because the calc_lighting() and update_liquids() don't work for me.
+ Spoiler
This nether is better than the other one.
