Battle Towers - Open-PreAlpha - 0.1.1 - R1

by rater193 » Sun Aug 23, 2015 23:10

Battle Towers

Upcoming update: NPC API
I started work last night, on the NPC framework api. I was going to base the code off the mod, NPC Frameworks but then i figured since im making an entire API, why dont i just make my own, since it was already pretty easy to do it. So, i started work on a custom system, winch will also give NPCs pathfinding so they can get to you without you realizing it! There will be 3 types of mobs.
1: ground
This will include things like zombies, caravans, and a ton of other things

2: flying
This will include things like giant flying eyes, bats, harpies, etc...

3: swimming
Swimming will not only be bound to water, i can also make it so there can be a "desert sand worm" winch is a giant worm that swims in the sand in the desert! so, be careful when you go there >: D

This mod is a WIP. The purpose of this mod is to spawn towers in the world, that have loot chests inside them, as well as hostile creatures. The system will be an API, so you can create your own tower types as well. The mod is designed after a popular minecraft mod, battletowers, hince the mod's name, battletowers.
This mod will be a fun mod to play with, with your freinds, however by yourself, it may be a little challenging to take over a tower. Future updates will include things like custom mob spawners, custom mobs, configurable mob spawners, configurable loot chests, and much more. enjoy the mod and have fun!

Updates:
This update was oriented twords the loot chests for the towers. The loot system now comes with a fully stocked API for letting you add new loot that spawns in towers!
Loot chests spawning in towers
Loot chests
more loot
Loot chests scale with the more loot gained on that floor
loot API
Progressive loot gain(The next floor gives more loot than the last)


loot API:
To start using the loot api, first you must run dofile like so
Code: Select all
   dofile(minetest.get_modpath("battletowers").."/Settings_Loot.lua")


Arguments:
Code: Select all
   addLoot(item, weight, minamm, maxamm)


After, you can start registering new loot to spawn in the chests
ex:
Code: Select all
   _G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:dirt"}, 20, 2, 5)
   _G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:stone"}, 10, 2, 5)


Here is a sample, that is used in the current loot creator, for the chests
Code: Select all
dofile(minetest.get_modpath("battletowers").."/Settings_Loot.lua")


_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:dirt"}, 20, 2, 5)
_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:stone"}, 10, 2, 5)
_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:iron_lump"}, 5, 2, 15)
_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:copper_lump"}, 5, 2, 15)
_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:gold_lump"}, 4, 2, 5)
_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:coal_lump"}, 10, 2, 15)
_G.battletowers:addLoot({name="default:diamond"}, 1, 1, 3)



If there are any features you would like to see in the game, let me know!

Hello everyone! i am developing a new mod for minetest, that will bring the minecraft mod, battletowers, to minetest! I just started working on this today, and already got the towers randomly generating in the world! right now mobs do not spawn in them, however I will add spawners and and loot chests into them in the future, so it will be more fun to raid! I will post the progress of battle towers here! I plan to release it within the next few days in open alpha!

Impressive mod! I look forward to seeing the final product and, ultimately, download it!

Yay for MT! No MC here!

I've been playing Minetest since December 2014.

I'm amazed that I haven't been on here in so long! My latest minetest accomplishment was mining by hand (well, as close as you can get in a computer game) a circle 30 blocks in diameter. It took forever but it's pretty cool.

My mobf_trader mod might be of use to you for that purpose. Its traders do not walk around, but you can add their trading function to mobs from other mods. The traders where inspired by npcf as well.

this is a neat concept to add to a game but I just wish it used default nodes
instead of adding nodes that are very similar to ones we already have,
the chiseled cobblestone looks very much like stone bricks
they are very nice textures though :)

maybe you can add depends.txt to the mods, so we know
they are dependant on the other mods in the pack,
and a license to protect your efforts.

the reason i am using custom nodes, is so i can make the tower blocks indestructible, the newer version has unbreakable blocks. the chisel mod, that i made was going to be its own mod, then i found out after i started it, it was already made for minetest, so i started making this mod, lol.

New update released:
Now towers will generate with loot chests, each floor of the tower will "generate" more loot than the previous floor
There is also now an api for you to add in custom items to generate with the loot chests
Right now, the loot chest is a gold block, untill i change it in the future to be an actual chest, but for now, its a gold block.

That didn't come out right, I sounded really rood here...sorry.

What I meant to say was that RAR isn't a file type supported by Windows or most Linux Distros by default, and it's not as easy to open (unless you use 7zip or WinRAR...) since it's closed source.

without torches mod and creatures mod you get many errors.
depends.txt are very helpful to us noobish types

However I wrote some quick aliases and finally got to test out the first release.

Its very nice compliment to Blockman's Ruins mod.
Nice job.

It sounds like someone needs to make a mod with remote controlled cars which you can affix dynamite to.

Is this mod still being worked on? It certainly is a good idea.

From screenshot for me it looks unnatural a bit (perfect shape, same color from down to top). Maybe mixing some (same attributes but different texture blocks) when generating these towers would help (for e.g. mossy stone block)? IMO generating old / damaged towers would be also great addition.
