Trying to add more garden plants-need help

by BMandarino » Wed Mar 18, 2015 23:58

I have been wanting to make a mod for more garden plants, but I'm not so good with coding. I kind of get overloaded when I look at sample lua code. I have the textures and have been able to make the placing of flowers work by copying the default flowers mod and editing it, but I remember something about abms being slow. Does anybody know a better way? I also want to try to add flowering bushes, trees, and maybe flowering vines.

You ought to talk to VanessaE. More plants would certainly be welcomed by plants_lib. Can you show us a few screenshots?

Nice plants! Hope they can get added. The world looks better if more plants are growing in it.

I added new flowers. I am trying to figure out how to add trees. The leaves would be flowers. I'll look at default again.

yay! more flowers :-)

A greater variaty in flowers would be great for creating gardens. A nice choice of clusters, pillows. formal arrangements, bushes, high stem, varying hights and fencelike combining of adjoining plant nodes would make gardening much more interesting.

It is always a nice idea to have more plants in your garden. You should try planting some new flowers for your garden. You can also add some new decorations and some furniture to make your garden more attractive.

Sorry this has taken a while. Stuff got in the way. Like technical issues and life. Does anyone know how to make trees? I want to add flowering trees next. Also people can do whatever they want with my pictures and code.

As for letting people do what they want with the code/images, you should attach a formal license, like CC0 or WTFPL(Read both of them, see if you like either.)

As for images, they should be the same size as the default textures, ie. 16x16.

WT*PL. I can't get the detail in the 16x16 I need for flowers, especially trees.

I'm working on a trees_lib that will (hopefully!) allow to easily add new trees. In general, the following textures are helpful: Tree trunk as seen from the side, tree trunk as seen from top, wood texture, leaf texture (seems you did two leaf textures?), (optional) fruit texture. Maybe your leaf textures can be combined with a tree that has only trunks so far. It's always nice to have more growing stuff!

Yes, those are leaf textures. I don't mind if they are combined with other trunks. Thanks for trying to help. I hope it works.

I know I haven't really done much with this mod, but I don't think I will continue it due to major health concerns. I am sorry, but I thought I should let you know. Anyone is free to pick up this project if they want.
