Thanks for the encouragement! I started working on it today and have bronze, stone and steel swords forgeable. I also am working on an obsidian sword, which requires a complex sequence of crafting and smelting.

Looking ahead, I'll probably add forging for all the other tools, as well as shears or something for cutting leaves. Once that is done I'll probably post the mod.

I have no idea if those are possible nor how intensive it would be for the computer to run them but...

1) Something similar to minecraft's mod light level overlay: it puts a number that shows the light level of the air block above those blocks within a short range. green numbers for light levels too high for monster spawn and red numbers for light levels low enough for monster spawn. even if you don't have to worry about monster spawn, it is very usefull for underground/nighttime/indoors farming and for efficient light source distribution.
+ screenshot of the minecraft mod

Maybe add the overlay as an effect of a placed item? Or allow the player to chose the color overlay for each light level?

2) There was a crafting manager mod in minecraft that solved crafting conflicts by adding a pair of arrow buttons under the output, showing how many possible outputs existed for a given recipe and allowing the player to pick wichever one they wanted. The player would click on the arrows to browse the possible outputs. I'm not sure if that would work for furnaces, but it could work for the in-inventory crafting. Is it possible to inplement in a mod that would be compatible to all the inventory mods? Or even in the inventory mods themselves?

Hi,

I was wondering if it would be possible to and a new type of liquid into the game(slime). I would like to even try to mode by myself (since I have a Lua/Love2d experience from my WIP project), bit I'm not sure where should I look at.

start here https://github.com/minetest/minetest_ga ... .lua#L2175

then you can search through various files where liquids are put to work
https://github.com/minetest/minetest_ga ... mapgen.lua

(depending on what you want slime to do/be used for)

Don't forget to grab a copy of the MT bible https://rubenwardy.com/minetest_modding ... index.html

And keep this handy as well https://github.com/minetest/minetest/bl ... ua_api.txt

Of course it would be possible. I recommend copying liquid code from default and modifying it.

Slime liquids have been done before, but there is nothing wrong with multiple slime mods being in existence.
My best mods: space_travel, time_travel, and rocket.

I don't know if this has been posted before (I did a search in the forums and didn't find anything). But how about a world map you can pull up that shows the places you've explored?

I would come in real handy for me, because I'm soooo lost on my world and just want to get back home!

Its not an ingame solution though...

melissareglia,

Being lost is no fun.

You can press the F5 key, which will tell you your position, and also tell you in which direction you are looking.

Try the Orienteering mod, by Wuzzy. There are some inworld items that you can use to help you navigate better, in world.

Also, you can download the minetestmapper or minetestmapper_iso applications. These applications are essentially the same. They will make a map of the explored world. From the map, you can probably find your way back.

In the minetestmapper program, it will help you if you set the options to draw the origin and they scale. This places a red circle at the center of the map, for position 0,y,0. It will also draw hash marks along the edges of the image that indicate distance.

Good luck!

melissareglia you can use a teleporting command to get back to 0,0,0 cords, simply grant yourself teleport privilege
Code: Select all
/grantme teleport
, and the use the command
Code: Select all
/teleport x,y,z
(replacing the xyz with your cords) also you probably know but you can use the
Code: Select all
/sethome
(used to set your home) command again also if your granted sethome

This would be fun, and not all that difficult, but the minimap is usually all I need to get around on the surface. It's completely useless underground, but I'm not sure how feasible an underground world map would be. How would you follow tunnels with it? The other problem with the minimap is having to locate iron before you can ever use it (which seems silly, since there were maps in the bronze age).

duane,

Just a random thought. What if, for each chunk, you built an image from the topmost visible node, assigning a color value, like minetestmapper, and constructing an image, on the fly, for each generated chunk. If possible, also store that generated tile string for the chunk, and use it, if available, or generate if not.

I made a map mod at one point, but the image files for the world quickly get too large for MT to handle. Even with an image size of 4096x4096, for balancing quick load times with detailed images, would require a substantial number of image tiles. If I tiled a world map at 2km intervals, (30x30) = 900 image files would need to be created. This essentially blows MT up. Lower quality images didn't really provide enough detail to be useful. Still, if you play in a small enough area, the mod might be useful.

Here's the link for my lib_sfinv_map mod on github. Please note, you will need to use minetestmapper et.al. to generate a map image, and then place that map image into the folder. I haven't worked on or used this mod in some time, but I can improve it, if there is interest. It should be compatible with Unified Inventory, Inv Plus, and sfinv. It also provide a standalone hud, a placeable map and maptable, as well as a hand held map.

All it really needs to be useful is a mark for your location and a mark for your sleep point or spawn or whatever. Adding labeled waypoints would just be gravy. Most game maps (not minimaps) are large scale, with forests, rivers, cities, etc., but they're still nice to have. I'm thinking less resolution than 1:10, personally, maybe less than 1:100.

I experimented a bit with CMSs, and wrote a mod that adds onscreen markers. It's not a full map, but can act as waypoints.

matyilona200,

Is what your mod accomplishes possible with server side mod?

I'm personally not a fan of CSM, but from a technical standpoint, I think a CSM solution would not be ideal. I could be wrong though, ..... so I'll take a peak.

duane is right, a map mod, with a larger scale map and player / place / waypoint markers.

Requesting offline guide of crafting and smelting, which you can download in *.pdf or *.doc.
In this guide, you can watch next things: crafting and smelting recipes, heights of ores (Y:-128 or lower for example) and biomes information. Requested size: 20~40 pages.

Extex, not sure how the usabilitz is on android, but this:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12666&hilit=heightmap
looks like what you are looking for.

Did you disable mod security like described in the post? If it isn't that, I am out of advice.

Never, ever, disable mod security. Any mod that asks you to do that is badly programmed. Mods which need extra permissions should be made into trusted mods

I decided that I will be the one to suggest these movement styles. Minecraft has had crouching for a long time and it recently got crawling as well. When will someone make a mod that adds these to Minetest?

Wouldn't this just be a matter of using a player model with these animations?

Player_anim, as far as I can tell, wouldn't enable this type of animation, so it's got to be a simple model update.

I would suggest starting with the 3d_armor or the multiskin variant player model, and add the animations in blender.

That would solve a multitude of requests and other potential issues.

Nathan S. is probably the person to ask, or stu himself.
