Mod Documentation

by hmmm » Sat Apr 14, 2012 17:46

I think that all mods should contain it's own documentation inside the mod. Like html files and pictures.
Then add a feature in the game which allows the player to view a list of all the mods installed which allows the player to select a mod and open it's documentation inside the game. That way, instead of having to check a server's website or forum page and then look up all the mods it uses, the player can find all the information they need in one location all while playing the game and not having to open a browser and switch back and forth from the game and the browser.

Then... do it? 8)
Ingame mod documentation would be great, yeah, but it's (probably) hard to code.

NAH!
Code: Select all
minetest.register_on_chat_message(function(name, message, playername, player)
    local cmd = "/modhelp"
    if message:sub(0, #cmd) == cmd then
        if message == '"/modhelp' then
        local player = minetest.env:get_player_by_name(name)
        minetest.chat_send_player(player:get_player_name(), "put your documentation on your mods commands/abilities/features here \n -BLAH \n BLAH \n BLAH")
        return true
        end
    end
end)

That modhelp command should probably have sub-sections:
- /modhelp moreores items > would print info about items for "moreores" (if there is an "items" category).
- /modhelp moreblocks > prints all categories of help for "moreblocks".

Yes that would be very good!

what about:
/modlist for showing a complete list of all mods you have installed.

My mods: The Nether | Doctor Who (WIP)

I have quit minetest ... again. I am heavily unimpressed by both the game and the community.
