Can't craft a bed

by melid » Tue Oct 01, 2019 01:31

Hello!
I'm new in the Minetest world.
I'm playing without mods just to familiarize myself in survival mode.
I could craft anything I wanted from iron bucket to a boat. Anything I wanted really when I had the items needed.

BUT I can't craft a bed. I tried white wool-white wool-white wool/wood-wood-wood. Didn't work.
I tried red wool-red wool-white wool/wood-wood-wood. I also tried the fancy bed. Didn't work.

Do I need a mods to craft a bed?
I already installed some of them but I had a lot of errors messages one day so I began anew without them.

What am I missing?

Thanks!

I dont remember recipe for beds but you could install a craft guide mod and have a look at all recipes.

I looked in the wiki for the recipe.
Are they more accurate in the craft guide mod?
Thanks Pyrollo!

No, wiki could be outdated (relies on what someone has typed in some day).
Craft guide is an ingame mod, that queries minetest for recipes. So recipes are actual working recipes.

You're probably just using an ancient version of Minetest Game. Wiki is correct for v5.0.1.

In ancient versions, 1 of the 3 wools was red instead of white (but I don't remember which one). Or was it two? Idk. Maybe the recipe is mirrored.

Note that installing a crafting guide is mandatory, otherwise MTG is mostly unplayable. Guessing the recipes is almost impossible. The crafting guide is always right. The wiki … not neccessarily. (Almost) everything is written by hand in the wiki. The core devs of MTG don't care about their game enough to write documentation for their own game, the wiki is mostly player-written.

Way to add this in, when addressing a new user. Is the intention to just turn people away from the project? Because that's what it seems like at this point.
You could have easily answered this new users question without adding that sentence.

To make a bed of any kind, you have to use only red wool; no other colours can be used.
My best mods: space_travel, time_travel, and rocket.

Small correction: According to the latest MTG source (https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game/blob/master/mods/beds/beds.lua) both normal beds and fancy beds are crafted with white wool.
