Could someone make a grappling hook mod?
The string for it could be crafted like this
XXX
GGX
XXX
G=grass X=blank

The grapple could be crafted like this
XIX
I I I
I I I

I=ingot

Then the whole gun would be crafted like this possibly
SSS
TTH
S I I

S=stick T=string H= grappling hook

What I would hope for this mod is you could shoot it at any block and it would go out on the string whilr slowly curving downward and then hitting the block if it wasn't to far away and then once a block is hit it pulls you towards that block. So say you build a tower in the sky you shoot the grappling hook it grabs on to the bottom of the tower you delete the brick above you as you hang there then you go thru the opening.

Pls someone make this if you want more ideas for it if you decide to make it just talk to me!!

I have a mod idea, for someone to make a mod that displays the name of an item you're holding, like Minecraft does.

I don't know how Minecraft does it, but I came up with this:

In Minecraft, that text would be white, not yellow.

Revised version with white text and drop shadow: Download

It also has a timer that removes the item name after a specified amount of time.

Text color, shadow color, and timeout configurable at top of `init.lua' (set a high timeout like 1000000 to effectively disable it).

EDIT: License is WTFPL. I'll probably add this one to my misc stuff later.

Awesome idea. I just tested it, and it works great.

I would be cool if they had something like tripwires (from minecraft) in mesecons, only instead of tripwires it should be lasers.

That probably would be doable. I might try to do it.

There should be 3 nodes that you place, the laser emitter and 2 types of detector. The emitter needs to have power from mesecons to work, and when one type of detector does not detect a laser beam, it sends power to mesecons, and the other type of detector would do the opposite.

Would it be possible to change the crosshair to a circle? I know kaeza did it in his firearms mod, but I just want it as a texture.

Just draw a circle on your favorite paint program, and use my crosshair_ex mod from this modpack as a basis.

Idea: earthquake

I believe it should be possible to implement an earthquake effect like this:
  • Shake player view
  • Randomly let blocks of any kind (especially cobblestone,bricks, and other building material) fall
  • Randomly destroy blocks of certain kinds (glass,sand)

The shaking player view is not possible with the API.

How about shaking player themselves?

What about a ball mod to play soccer together?

Or is that impossible?

You have no chance, so use.

When is the release of the next minetestversion? ;-)

kelp forest style seaweed.

Im a fan of making half submerged Bond villain style castles and Id kinda like something to look at out there on the ocean floor. Besides the one sea mod (which is great but doesnt add much aesthetically) there isnt much going on underwater in minetest
Air (you hacker you!)

3D crafting Idea. (I don't have working minetest computer so just going to share this idea)
You can craft larger objects by creating a certain pattern with certain objects with special 3d crafting node in middle. after it is made, you punch on 3D crafting node and it detects positions around it and compare it to a list, then replace everything with larger node. Dig it to drop starting materials. This can be used in large machines like factory and car so it is more realistic.

What I don't like about the "inventory crafting" of Minecraft/-test is that you can show it in-world. If another player comes up and asks "how to craft a chest?" You cannot demonstrate it. Maybe you respond with some cryptic symbols "w,w,w|w,,w|w,w,w" or something? A 3D crafting mechanism would enable me to make my crafting (for everything, not just large machines) visible to other players.

That is a cool idea, though I have one little point: normal inventory should not be disabled (else, how would you craft the "crafting block"?)
