Wishes for Minetest 0.4.11 (or 0.5)

People, write here the stuff you would love to see in the version after 0.4.10.

My wish is a parameter for the player model transparency. =)

Optimisation.
Higher FPS.
Less (visible) server lag.
Game play polish.

Longer term:
Client side API for Graphics, Sounds and client side prediction for mods.

There are several mods that use use the strategy of replacing an item in inventory in order to change the image for a tool. Screwdriver, clock, the compasses, bridgetool, etc. It's a hack, and a clumsy one in my opinion.

What I wish the brilliant devs could figure out how to do would be to allow a mod to override the image for a particular tool without having to replace it. It would be trivial to do it for the whole class of tools, but we need a way to modify the image for the particular compassgps, clock, or screwdriver that one player is carrying and not for every compassgps, clock or screwdriver in the game. And I'm afraid that might be complicated.

Sounds to me like a possible application of a "standard" metadata entry. Like formspec, infotext, and inventory are done for nodes. If the metadata entry didn't exist, the default texture/appearance would be used. Note that inventory items can have metadata too (see ItemStack).

Hello
Change of the behaviour of the Enter Key in Formspecs would be lovely.
Thanks,

If by that you mean having more control over the alpha channel (making the alpha channel a custom number) then i totally agree with you..

More efficient ABM's that cause less lag while playing on servers.

I am not sure what thread Lua is on, but Ithink that it should be on a thread that doesn't block how the server replies to the client. Slower reply times means more lag.

More or less. Basically, any way to make the logic for triggering and threading them more efficient. Of course, one of the largest problems is how people usually code them, but....

I need seeds from dry shrub.
Do not call me -minetest.
Call me DS or DS-minetest.
I am German, so you don't have to pm me English if you are also German.

You cant play MT without mods.
If you think, you have no mod installed, say "/mods".
Do not call me -minetest.
Call me DS or DS-minetest.

This is way too high level to deserve dedicated API calls for that.

But the doors mods of minetest_game provides some utility functions. Look for doors.register_door in the source code.

There is no reason not to install mods. Also, quite a lot of mods written two years ago still work. Not a low of the API has changed.

Hello everyone,
I would like to add (in version 0.4.11, or 0.5, if it's possible) :
- Extinguish fire with water
- Enable/Disable fire (burning of flammable nodes) in minetest.conf
(Here is a modified version of fire mod :
+ Spoiler


It's a little modification, but I would want your opinion about it.)
- Better modstore
- Less bugs than in this version (I found one or two... from minetest core...)

I will probably post a new topic about the fire mod in a few days in the Features Discussion.

Thanks.
