Strange yellow square... [resolved]

by troglodytal » Post

Hi all. I recently got started with Minetest and installed several mods (list below). I left a game to run overnight and this morning I noticed a strange yellow square on the HUD. Not sure what it is. It wasn't there when I left the game. I tried reverse image searching Google, but nothing turned up. I also looked through debug.txt, but I didn't notice anything obvious that referenced it. I'm not sure how to disable it. Does anyone know what this is?

I'm playing the (default) Minetest game. List of mods installed (all from the Minetest ContentDB):

* algae
* auroras
* bike
* mesecons
* mobkit
* mobs_animal
* nuke
* simple_skins
* unified_inventory
* water_life
* areas
* basic_materials
* hang_gliders
* minecart
* mobs
* mobs_monsters
* pipeworks
* technic
* vehicles

Thanks in advance.

It's snake poison from water_life. You need the "antiserum" which you make from three snakes.

ywwv: if you install the water_life mod then occasionally snakes will poison your character. Then the yellow square will appear.
