Hello guys,

we have some great mods here like the car mod or the boat mod (thanks PilzAdam :) ).

But what about an airplane mod? (a plane for more than one person i think will be greate like a Boeing 747)

And a elevator mod would be greate too, maybe big enougth to transport the boeing with it (I know it is always in the treat)

Well, there's a "UFO" mod that provides...well...an Unidentified Flying Object :)
Maybe that can be slightly modified to achieve controls more like a plane.

That would be relatively easy to do: just make it so when placing a node, eight pillars/runes/whatever are placed as well in a quasi circular pattern. I'd do that myself...once I get some inspiration to do something :)

No load error, but also no response. Did you only move / copy the mods to or did you extract / unzip the mods into the minetest folder ?

I (OS Lubuntu 12.10) extract / unzip them into:

/home/topywo/celeron55-minetest-30b9a4d-test/mods/minetest

There is standard a file in that folder / directory: mods_here.txt Ignore that one, but at least you know it is the right directory / folder

Example installed moreores mod:

/home/topywo/celeron55-minetest-30b9a4d-test/mods/minetest/moreores

is it possible to make coal driven force field?
I have stopped playing minetest, and may not come back to it again. I would like to thank everyone that made the amazing time I had playing it. This account is not in use anymore, and the email has been linked to a unused account. If any administrator reading this has time, feel free to delete my account. Thank you very much for the great experience.

It would be nice if Minetest had multicolored lights.

I was thinking more like the light being given of being of different colors.

I would imagine Minetest's engine being capable of colored environment lighting if given the proper coding. For example, nighttime lighting and torch lighting give off different colors of light. Colored environment lighting would make mods like bobblocks and homedecor more interesting.

Regarding light, there ought to be a way to create light sources that give off more light than the current max. It takes a lot of light sources to light a building. Sometimes it feels as if you have to plaster half the ceiling...

I was thinking that lava and flames could give off an orange glow, but with lava being brighter.

Could someone make a mod that adds a biome definer. Like plant_libs but for the entire ground.
Coding;
1X coding
3X debugging
12X tweaking to be just right

*GravityWorks
-Gravity Field - 0 G (momentum preserved, semi-transparent, does NOT suffocate)
-Gravity Field - Directional (semi-transparent, does NOT suffocate, maybe a config menu to set the speed of the field?)
-Solid forcefield (semi-transparent, does NOT suffocate)
-Slowfield (semi-transparent, slows movement in all directions, like cobweb, does NOT suffocate)
-Shockfield (Slowfield + damage every few seconds or continuous; semi-transparent lava that doesn't flow, does NOT suffocate)
-Jump Pads (all angles ... maybe enter angle in a config menu)
-Elastic water (contact with water [gelatin more like] causes you to bounce; in essence, very excessive buoyancy)
-Parachute (use to slow vertical movement)
-Glider (use to slow vertical movement, accelerate lateral movement)
-Overall Map Gravity Setting?

As for the next part, bear with me, it only seems complex because I've tried to think it through thoroughly. If anyone can implement even one part of it, please go ahead and give it a shot. Really it's not just a mod, but a game. Yeah, a very far reach, but it sure would be fun to play.

*Command and Conquer Mod:
-Self-constructing structures from Construction Boxes (ConBox). See Maze mod: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=2814
-Buildings such as Powerplants, Tiberium Refinery, etc. are self-constructing using Construction Boxes. Place the appropriate Construction Box (eg. a Powerplant Construction Box), then fill the box with the necessary amounts of the resources specified (eg. 256 Iron, 100 Copper, etc.) and the ConBox will automatically start constructing the building at a set rate. The ConBox also checks the integrity of the structure built, which determines the structure's functionality (eg. Power Plant < 50% integrity, decreases power output; War Factory < 50% integrity, decreases rate of vehicle production; etc.).
-The ConBox must be placed within a set range of another ConBox. Only the Construction Yard ConBox can be placed without being in range of another ConBox, but it should be extremely costly to produce a Construction Yard (eg. 2000 Iron, 2000 Copper, etc.).
-To further avoid abuse, a Trade Menu (or similar) pops up when depositing resources into the ConBox, asking you if you want to keep any excess resources in case you placed extras (helps because the ConBox automatically rebuilds the building at a set rate while it still has resources in it). Resources can NOT be removed once placed inside a ConBox. This is to prevent abusive people from stealing resources from ConBoxes to put into their own ConBoxes. If a ownership system would work instead, or something else, pls go ahead and try it. See Vending Machines: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=3039
-Add Vehicles. Flame tank cannot drill through, say Concrete? Flame Tank Basis, TBM: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=4015
http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=4023
-Add Weapons: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=4562
-Add Tiberium ... harvested by players and Bots: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=2576
-Add etc.: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=4277

In minetest.conf add

Code: Select all

movement_gravity = 9.81
9.81 for earth
3.69 for mars (for example)

That can already be partly done by the towntest mod: Place chest, choose building, insert building material. The integrity of the building can be checked if the box memorizes which building it did construct.

I'm planning something similar for my random_buildings mod: Place a special chest to start a village, and then draw further building chests out of that special one to actually build the buildings. It won't go in the direction of Command&Conquer; games like SimCity or the Settlers come to my mind (in a *very* reduced and basic form).
If you want to apply some game logic, you have to account for the fact that large relevant parts of the map might not be loaded at all times, so your mod would have to compensate for that.
