need some advice and suggestions

by chrisjose1913 » Tue Dec 02, 2014 00:27

Hello i am thinking of making a trains mod based on the carts mod, I would like to know the following

1 Liking carts I would like to make carts link together using a wrench like tool. Can it be done ?
2 I would like to make carts controllable with the W S keys to make them go backwards and forwards while in the cart
3 Sounds I would like to be able to add sounds
3 Carts with storage

If this can be achieved I can make a train mod with different trains carriages ECT.

Players can be attached to carts, but I don't know if carts can be attached to each other. There is also the issue of turns. Turning around would require each individual cart to turn around at a diffrent degree - else it might look very odd. Regarding Minetest and its one-node-long turns, that might be easier than with a real train.

Other vehicles such as cars, helicopters and ufos can be controlled from withhin, so it ought to work with carts as well.

A detached inventory ought to work fine for that. Unified_inventory comes with one for the bags.

I'd love to see some nicely done trains.
A list of my mods can be found here.

If you want to make it based on the carts mod, you need to change lots of code, I think.
