Player name in locked chest

by neko259 » Post

Locked chest should have it's owner name in brackets when looking on it with mouse.

"Locked chest (neko259)"

Also, there has to be a way to destroy it by server op. Or a griefer would build some of these chest and anyone won't be able to remove them.

Yep, that would be useful for shouting at someone who put one at a wrong place.
Not here for a while due to some troubles between my graphic card and Minetest.

As far as I can tell this can not be done with a mod, but if you really want it you can make a change to the source code and it seems that the change is only needed in the client to work.
Just replace this function in 'content_nodemeta.cpp'

Code: Select all

std::string LockingChestNodeMetadata::infoText()
{
    std::string output;
    output = "Locking Chest (";
    output = output + getOwner() + ")";
    return output;
}

I think server admins should be considered to be owner of any placed item (currently only chests). I think this means:
  • They can look inside, usable if you suspect that someone is cheating
  • They can destroy chests
PS: I would change the text to "Owner: " + getOwner()
We must be careful not to clone Notches mistakes.

locked chests with player name; brick, sandstone, stone, and wood. The wood recipe was changed to using sticks. Let me know if you want locked doors, that display the name also.

That being said, it would be better if locking chests were fully in a mod, don't you think?

Thanks, I already had locked doors and chest, so adding the owner name was easy.

it would also be nice if a person is banned that their locked chests revert to normal chests or admin can empty them an return stolen contents.
