me too =(>.<)=
on Xanadu you always get grass at stage 1 when you pick it up.
and when you plant it somewhere and it is exposed to light, it will grow up into stage 2 and so forth.
grass at the highest growth stage can spread new grass at stage 1 on nearby dirt nodes.
i want to use that system because i like it.

as for stone textures:
the grasses are 5 individual items and placed on the map as 5 different decorations.
stones in biomes are set by the biome api which only supports 1 node to be set.
it is possible to generate stones with different textures by generating the other stones as ores, but that is weird and interferes with other ores.
also when you dig the stones, you would use an extra slot in your inventory for each stone and when you build something you have to manually place them in random patterns.
grass and stone are completely different things =(>.<)=

i think we had this discussion before,
and i remember someone posted a link to some mod that replaces textures of placed nodes to create randomness.
so let me think about it...

i have trouble growing my first tree.
i have the nodes, a model (somehow i ended up with a near identical imitation of the default apple tree :P ) but i can't figure out the growth code =(>.<)=

firefox wants his game to be super clean, so every updates takes time!

You might find this to be useful. Line 55, 54, 317, 275, 302, and 264.

i used the default's growth function with the timer
like this one:

but for some reason it doesn't activate...

so i decided to make my own code with an ABM like i did with the melting and freezing function =(^.^)=

yes, it works in default but not in my game ._.
(and i did change the mod and node names)

but i already decided that i don't like it, so i will do it my way :P

here's the plan:
make an ABM for the sapling group that runs every 3 minutes.
the ABM has a 50% chance to activate, if it does, it checks for light and soil and if the conditions are met, it will trigger the growth function.
the growth function then checks the sapling name and places the schematic.

that should do it =(^.^)=

quick info:

nothing done for the trees yet, but i managed to make ice transparent by stea... um... "borrowing" it from Wuzzy's subgame :P

they will have different themes like Knight or Ninja and alter movement physics.
so instead of the standard iron to diamond upgrade, there will be basic and advanced armor for different classes/professions to choose from.

idea: first off only use minerals for your basic armor and tools/weapons, saving gems for something special like magical items. I think the armor should be leather to mithril (mithril as a replacement for diamond armor). Leather armor would slow you down 1sp give you 3prot and 2dur (sp = speed, prot = protection, dur = durability). steel armor would slow you down 5sp give you 5prot and 9dur. bronze armor would slow you down 4sp give you 7prot and 5dur. gold armor would slow you down 0sp give you 9prot and 2dur. mithril armor would slow you down 6sp give you 10prot and 8dur.

introducing apple trees:

they are just like in default, but the apples are not part of the schematic.
instead they drop from leaves, like saplings.

movement speed is already slow as it is.
