Okay, this may be a bit odd but please bare with me: a pick axe that has a slot for torches so by right clicking you place a torch, provided the slot has torches

I found what I was thinking of but it was just an idea. No one made it. Hopefully someone will make it because this would be a great mod.

You could store the torches into the item's meta but if you put 2 of these tools into the craft guide, it offers you a repaired one, which doesn't keep the meta of the item.

Explorer Tools linked above does pretty much what you are asking. Except that you don't actually store the torches in the item. Instead the tools will attempt to place whatever is in inventory one slot to the right of the tool. that means you can not only use this for placing torches, but you can even place a stack of some other building material there and alternate between digging and placing nodes by switching between left and right clicks.

4aiman created a modification of this that makes ALL picks, axes, and shovels registered in the game have this feature.

I think mods like OpenComputers and ComputerCraft have managed to add a shocking amount of replay value to a certain game. Are mods like that even possible in Minetest? Are there "C++-level" mods or support for external libraries? Otherwise I can see trying to run user-supplied Lua code being a giant security risk, and other languages would be... well, tricky. I don't imagine there are many implementations of languages in pure Lua, for some strange reason. :p

Also.. hi! :)

For the purpose of gameplay recording or Lets Plays, it would be cool to have a video-mod:
  • you would be able to craft a Camera
  • it could be placed somewhere in the world
  • you could record a timelapse of your builds
  • monitor an area (and display it on a bigass screen ingame)
  • maybe sound recording would be nice too
--- so yeah, I'm neither a programmer, nor a videoproducer and I have no idea what I'm asking for.

I don't think it is currently possible. I've asked a similar question. I think the c++ source would have to be modified by the crew...

I think adding camera functionality like this would be really cool for your reasons as well as others. Changing cameras angles or views is great for cinematic storytelling. And that is what games are about, telling a story.

couldn't there just be a block that takes a screen shot for you? like you set a delay time?

you could change the player's camera to look from this block for less than a second and automatically make a screenshot

You could also run a second minetest game and record from there. There are no changes for the engine needed for that and no mod.
What would be interesting is a mod that helps you doing tracking shots by teleporting and changing the look direction.

But if you run a second minetest game, you get more lag.
BTW: Can you load the media of a server faster if you join with multiple accounts at once?

Where should I post this?

Anyway I wanted to share this, mostly with the newbie modders out there. This code demonstrates how to manipulate a player physics attribute for player gravity via a customized chat command.

Maybe this is something RubenWardy may be interested since he is making a tutorial?



To use this, insert in your mods lua.init file. Then enable your mod and start your game. To use just press the "/" key while in the game and use the command gravity. Example : /gravity .5

Here is a link to the player, with set_physics_overide function

http://dev.minetest.net/Player

Here is a link to the register_chatcommand function.

dev.minetest.net/minetest.register_chatcommand



Here it is, have fun pretending to jump like superman.

Code: Select all

minetest.register_chatcommand("gravity", {
   params="<0 to 1>",
   description="Sets gravity from 0 to 1",
   func = function(name,param)
		param=tonumber(param)
		local playerOne = minetest.get_player_by_name("singleplayer")
		minetest.chat_send_all(playerOne:get_player_name())
		playerOne:set_physics_override({gravity=param})
		minetest.chat_send_all(name)
	end,
   
})

The more info can easily be adapted from death_messages to show on the bones. I can write the code, if you want me too. As for textures, I can't help you much.

Maybe one of the people doing the mesh nodes could come up with something cool for bones. Or use a skeleton skin on an entity instead of a block.

I say there should be a nodebox for bones. Now that Ruben has the nodebox editor working pretty well, I can make some good looking MT bones.

Node boxes are great and could work well but it looks like meshes are the future of mt. If meshes are the future we might as well do it now.
This is just my opinion and would love to hear a few of the main developers opinion.

Edit - when I say main developers I mean besides you. I know you're very active with minetest.
