Smart explosions or TNT which does not destroy any drops or
only destroys commonly unwanted types such as stone, earth, gravel, sand, trees, leaves, etc.

Hi! I'm new at playing minetest. I want to use it in class. Minetest-Wiki tells me, that there is a "unified inventory"-mod that you can download. But when I follow the link, it tells me, that I'm not authorized to read the forum. I also can't find the "unified inventory" via the search engine.
Can somebody help me with the authorization or give me the download-link to the describen mod?
Thanks!

The link on the wiki is probably way out of date.
https://content.minetest.net/packages/R ... inventory/
This page has several useful links and you should also be able to find it through the ingame mod installer.

I assume Jastiv means a wings mod. I think I have seen a wings mod for Minetest somewhere, but I'm not sure. I know that there exists an UFO, helicopter, plane, jet backpack and flying carpet mod.

You mean something like MC elytra? The best match I've found so far is the "Glider" mod. Comes with a glider and firework rockets to boost your speed. It's not as polished as flying with elytra but it works. There's also a jetpack in the "Technic" mod which is pretty cool if you like technical stuff.

I want to have a way to be able to build some sort of mini island of 4 blocks where to have a tiny person building whilst a normal sized person observes. For this i heard there are many mods that work in the shrinking department like chiseled me or gulliver but i can't seem to find any version intercompatibility between them. So if anyone could adapt the little blocks mod into 1.12 or any of the other two into 1.7 I would be grateful. Preferably the first option so it works with other mods but any is fine.

I think you are on the wrong forum (not sure, might be incorrect), because this is a Minetest forum and not MineCraft forum.
My mod (a bit old) request: Better enchant. My second mod: Old Broken Castle nodes. Search for aab01 to find my mods!

Hello everyone, I'm trying to get into modding. Can someone point me to lua mod examples where the mesh of an entity is made through code (simple box defined in a lua file) and not through a blender file that has the model and animations, etc.
Edit: Looked around but didn't find anything of the sort, did find out about visual = "cube" so I will play around with it.

Good modding resources are the reference (https://github.com/minetest/minetest/bl ... ua_api.txt (or http://minetest.gitlab.io/minetest/)) and probably rubenwardy's book (https://rubenwardy.com/minetest_modding ... index.html).

Arbitrary meshes can't be defined directly in lua, you have to define it in a separate text-file. The file-ending is .obj and you have to put it into a media subfolder (eg. models or textures). See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wavefront ... ile_format for instructions about how you can define vertices and co..
For nodes there's also the possibility of using nodeboxes, which might be easier.
I think, it's also possible for entity objects to look like items or nodes, and hence also like a nodebox, but I'm not sure how that's done.
Note that I've recently renamed myself on github and co. to "Desour". (I'm bad at naming things.)
Feel free to call me DS.

Hello! we were playing in a farm world, and then comes this idea about incorporate animals, I mean, maybe a magic potion or something that player becomes a boar, cow, horse or anything. Camera view needs to modify in any animal, and skin/model too. What do you say?

Could someone help me with a random skin generator for npc mobs? I'm trying to make a modified version of mobs_npc with a random skin generator similar to that of villagers, but less complex.

I don't need anything too fancy, just something that can create male and female npc skins by applying clothing and face layers to a base skin texture. The layers I need are as follows:
  • Base (skin)
  • Hair
  • Face
  • Shirt
  • Pants
  • Shoes
I tried to do this on my own, but I lack the knowhow to pull this off.
Check out my Star Wars subgame.

So take this with a grain of salt as I haven't tested this but I think what you need to do is firstly create say 2 random images which contain just the below elements (you could easily do 4/6/8 whatever number). You could break this up more as per categories you have above and add other layers as needed. the trick is just make sure your head layer for example only contains "head" texture elements and the rest of the image is set to transparent.

heads_image_1.png
heads_image_2.png
torso_image_1.png
torso_image_2.png
legs_image_1.png
legs_image_2.png

Then have some random code to generate a number the below is proxy code and probably wont run but Im hoping will give you enough to work from.

Code: Select all

local S = mobs.intllib -- Existing npc.lua line

local h_ran = math.random (1, 2) -- random number from 1 to 2
local t_ran = math.random (1, 2)
local l_ran = math.random (1, 2) -- lowercas L not capital i :)

local character_skin="heads_image_"..h_ran..".png"^"torso_image_"..t_ran..".png"^"legs_image_"..l_ran..".png"

-- Then down in the npc.lua texture block add:

	textures = {
		{character_skin},
	},

I think that should do it, now assuming I haven't stuffed anything, you should have npc's spawning with random head/torso/leg colors. Feel free to PM me directly if the above doesn't work or create a dedicated thread in modding discussion and others much better at lua scripting than me will chime in with suggestions.

the concept looks pretty neat, but does still work on current MT?

I have this idea, I don't know if this is existed already. I'm trying to code this too.

Make a privilege for admins which allows them to be more invincible. Like when some players or griefers hit them without the said privilege they will die instantly.
