+ Blocks: flat stone, desert flat stone, metal blocks
+ Anvil

+ New trees

Guide:

Start
So you've created the world. All you have are hands that are good for light cases.
The first thing to do is to find trees. But you cann't break a tree with hands. No problem: you can dig dirt under a tree. After that, the tree collapses and you get logs, sticks and saplings.

First tools
First you need to find a few stones. They roll around and look like this:

Now add up the stones in the crafting for getting tool head.

Now you should join tool head with stick(they have to stay you from cutting the tree, or just a broken leaves) and take stone tool. This tool is slowly, but it can help first time.

First home
The first house is the best hollow in the rock or constructed of planks. For breaking into the rock using a pick previously obtained. To obtain planks put a log on the ground and cut it with an ax. You will get 4 boards, from which. You can make wooden objects, but you can not build.

For building you must use planks blocks:

If you hollow out a house in the ore you decide two problems: the housing problem and the problem with the ore.

Also, you can just climb up the tree and leave the thing in the chest.

Fire

To start a fire, you need something to ignite it. Connect the two sticks. You will get a tool that can make a bonfire or furnace.

Now throw five sticks on the ground and use them two sticks.

A fire can not work the first time.You can spend a few lighters, to do this .

Now you can click on the RMB to see the fire and its interface.

Left are slots: Lower fuel and top for what you need to cook. On the right are slots for the result.

Bonfire will not disappear if you do not put the fuel, but goes out. Later it will be easy to rekindle: laying the fuel and ignites a two sticks.

Now let's make a couple of torches. Put a stick in the source slot and the result will be two torches on each stick.

Metal time

You probably already tired of stone tools, so that the loan metals. In the game there are a lot. In addition, they have a different strength. For example, cast iron solid copper, steel durable cast iron. The strongest of black steel. That is why the work metals can only be strong enough anvils.

To start, you need light metals. This bismuth, zinc and tin. They are obtained from the smelting of bismuthinite, cassiterite and sphalerite.

To start looking for ore deposits. Now find the field has become much more complicated, but the field has become very large (up to 850 pieces from the field). But we are so much now is not necessary. But the ore is not so easy to smelt, it will be spread. Therefore, we need molds. They can sculpt in clay and burn at the stake. Clay is no longer a scarce resource, because it is found in the sand or in the ground, but only next to water bodies. You'll need it very much.

Then put in the form of ore and smelt in the bonfire.

You now have a metal, but how to get it out of shape? Just because your hands form not to break, it can only be broken. This requires an anvil. You can only make it out of solid rock. To get it you need obkopat block of stone from all sides. Stone can be folded stone anvil.

Now you need a hammer. How to do it has been described in the section of stone tools.

Now open the anvil, put neformovany metal hammer and break the form.
You got bullion, but what to do with it? Sure to strike! But forging need to know what to strike.

TO BE CONTINUED, but you yourself can try to find a way of forging, the game is sold.

You can melt the ingot again. To do this, put it in a mold and place in the furnace or bonfire.

Forging

Other
Cooking default:tree or default:wood to default:coal.

Search for ore:

Any ore can be found at any altitude. But to make the search for interesting regions were introduced. The probability of occurrence of ore in the region is 1/2. That is the type of ore may or may not be in the area. But if you find some some ore, then you can be sure that the area around is exactly the same ore.

More Ores should work without any problem with this mod, normally.

You use default (and really boring) generate_ore. Can I suggest my generate_ore_perlin function from this post in "More Ores" thread?

PostPosted: Sat Aug 04, 2012 15:20
by sda97
My mod and More Ores is different. More ores simply adds a lot of ore, but they are not realistic. They can even melt without special forms. In addition more ores is not able to make alloys.

Yes, I know. But you and Calinou use generate_ore from minetest upstream. It is using uniform distribution and boring.

I will try to use the new function and tomorrow I will write about the results

[citation needed]
Uniform distribution isn't "boring" (you've said that twice). What is "boring" for you? I use generate_ore because:
- the official game uses it, this means the ores generate like in the vanilla game.
- it is not predictable, of course.

The thing is. It is predictable. You can find any ore in any place of the map. No ore rich/oreless regions.

can i ask WTF is bituminous_coal? it is from your mod, but i don't know what to do with it... is it possible to produce it to simple coal lump?

PostPosted: Wed Aug 15, 2012 18:23
by sda97
No, it can not be crafted to normal coal, but it can be, as usual, used in the furnace. Also pay attention to crafting a new recipe torches.

is there any other, more useful, application for it? only like a bad fuel?

1 block under water where (beach)sand and water come together. Standard it's a light-grey block.

I found one really irritating thing: realtest switches off spawning of iron and coal - but iron and coal from it(realtest) can't be used in craft things from other mods, which need default:steel_ingot and default:coal! I have one request: could you integrate your mod with default and more_ores ;) I mean could you use "minetest.register_craftitem(moreores:gold_ingot" for realtest's gold ingot and same thing with other popular things like silver, copper, iron, tin?
I'm asking, because it will give us ability to have different methods of useful metals harvesting and may be it can be alternative for more_ores

or at least assigning aliases to them should work. No?

I don't want integration with more ores. They have different purpose. More Ores simply extends default api. Real Test offers a new method of mining metals. As for coal and iron ingots I will try to return to the standard. Only iron ingots likely will be implemented, as wrought iron ingot.

Huge mod :) I love it.

I'm already a big fan of terra firma craft and seeing something as good coming to minetest is great :)
