Announcement: Lots of exciting things are happening with the Star Wars franchise, and a lot of exciting things will be coming in the next update of Minetest: Star Wars, Beta v0.1.0. It's been almost half a year since my last major update, and it will probably take another half a year to finish Beta v0.1.0, so I've decided to give you a sneak peak of what's to come:
  • Ethereal biomes
  • Lightsabers
  • Blasters
  • Many new mobs, including Stormtroopers, Banthas, Tookas, Hutts, and more
  • Star Wars-themed foods
  • Skins (possibly unlockable)
  • The Force (not entirely sure how this would work, but I have a few ideas)
  • And much more!
I'm open to suggestions. If you would like to see a feature in the next update, let me know. Note that I may not be able to include all your suggestions in the next update.



The Rise of Skywalker is out, and so is a new version of this game! While the Star Wars saga has come to an end, development of Minetest: Star Wars has only just begun.

This update brings armor into the game, as well as the first mob. Here is the full list of changes:
Mods Other
  • Added Wooden Armor.
  • Added Bronze Armor.
  • Added Durasteel Armor.
  • Added Mandalorian Armor (texture adapted from a Minecraft skin by Fries47).
  • Added Tusken Raiders (texture adapted from a Minecraft Skin by Tyiss), which spawn in deserts and attack players.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed a bug with 3D Armor when playing on Minetest 5.1.0. See this post for details. (Alpha v0.0.2a)
[*]Fixed a bug with the Tusken Raider mob that crashed the game on startup. (Alpha v0.0.2b)

Download latest version here.
Browse source code here.

Minetest 5.0+ required (5.1.0 recommended).

Older versions:
Alpha v0.0.1
+ Spoiler
Planned features:
  • Blasters
  • Lightsabers
  • Speeders
  • Animals
  • NPCs/Traders
  • Droids
  • Stormtroopers
  • Sith Lord boss fight

This game sounds cool, but I have not tested it yet since Alpha v0.0.1 crashes in version 5.0.1 (I have not yet updated to 5.1.0).

Not sure you if you are aware but you may want to study the Scifi-Mobs mod [mobs_scifi] by D00Med. It contains at least four Starwars themed mobs that may be of use to you.

Thanks. I am aware of that mod and plan to include it in the next major update.

Hi,

I've tried this, but I couldn't see any Star Warsish. Just the usual biomes, and no mobs. What did I wrong? My boys love SW and MT, so this would be like Xmas for them... :-D

Cheers,
bzt

I tried v0.0.2., but it still crashed. I'm still playing version 5.0.1., which could be the problem. According to the error report, in the game's mod "default," there is an "attempt to compare number with nil."

Can you try again and copy the whole error report? I think you left out some information that can lead me to the problem.

You didn't do anything wrong, that's how it is at the moment. The next update is where I will introduce a bunch of SW weapons, mobs, food, etc. I don't have a deadline at the moment, but you can count on this being Xmas for your boys by Xmas (I hope).

Thanks for the info, I'm waiting! :-)
I can provide some home made SW content (like Luke, Leia, Chubbie skins and MTS files for ships, things like that) if you'd like.

Cheers,

Sorry for the delay everyone. As you all know this year has been crazy, and I haven't had much time to work on this game. Good news is I'm back. Bad news (for some) is that it is hard to support multiple versions of MT, therefore I will focus on supporting the latest stable releases only from now on.

That would be great! I'm currently considering ship wrecks (like the ones of Jakku in The Force Awakens) that can be used as a source of scrap metal. Working ships will be rideable entities which might be used in the future to travel between planets once I implement multiple planets.

Thanks, but unfortunately I've decided to drop support for all but the latest stable version of MT because it's too hard to maintain older and newer versions.

The latest Alpha release works with 5.1.0. I haven't gotten around to updating it since the next update is a total redo of the game.

Have you seen this? It looks very very promising for that!

Btw, I'm working on a 3d model voxelizer that saves MTS files. I'll let you know when it's working, and then you can convert any model you like! (I'm using a hi-res Death Star model for testing, looks very promising, although I'm not entirely sure how that could be included in the game a meaningful way. Maybe parts of it on the ground?)

Cheers,

I had not seen it, but it is similar to what I was thinking. I probably won't do an entire ISD wreck like that as it would cause a lot of lag and possible even crash the game. I was thinking of something like crashed fighters and maybe scattered parts of larger ships, nothing too big.

As for a Death Star, I don't see how that would fit into the game. Currently, I plan for the game to represent the survival of a Force-sensetive being that was stranded on a planet. This may change in the future, but that's what it is now.
