Future Mod idea?

by Gatharoth » Post

Alright, I don't know if this is currently possible. But have any of you thought of creating a NPC that gathers items automatically. So like, say you have a farmer that that will create a farm using the farming mod. For an example of what I'm talking about, here's the minecraft's version.

Anyway, thoughts about this?

Well, automated builders can build only so much, they won't be able to create epic buildings like players can :D Beside players will have new ideas, where as the automated builders, will only have the same old thing. :P

Well, 99% players just copy existing structures from RL. Add some randomness, and you'll have automatically build typical minecraft/minetest world :)

Well, I'm that 1% of players :P I don't copy existing structures/buildings. I like coming up with new buildings and tweaks to them on how rooms will look, as well as if there's any secret passages, ect. XP

Anyway! Back to topic. Is it currently possible to create the Entity, and have it "dig"?

Oh, I think they can. Just create a table and add the gathered nodes name to it.

Ah, but can they plant the plants from farms? And can they use the hoe to plow the land?

Adding all of what you're talking about is much work but possible. There's another problem, entities get unloaded as soon as no players are within a specific range. A luaentity implemented farmer would only be active as long as a player is next to him!

Thats a problem for all lua implemented things even for abm's.

BTW it's animals big red destroying blocks ;-)

They don't need hoe. Just need to know how the mods create plants (or maybe use an API from the mods).
