[Mods] Coral reef biome Any body interest? (lots of models!)

by Kevin Tee » Post

Sorry for my English.
Hi, I think that ocean is to boring. So I am thinking of making coral biome where there will be alot of coral reef. I am drawing a rough sketch of the corals. I can model all of these, but I am no good at pixel art and programming. Anyone interest?

Update: add jellyfish, starfish, sea urchin. Blend file on my signature

This would be quite nice if well done.
Coral would make a nice feature.
Though im extremely bad and images and can only do things to make it like coral(not the picture)
Give me some EXTREME HARDCORE xD

You shouldn't need to do much programming. You could create different corals as decorations, either simple or schematics, and register them to go in ocean biomes, below sea level. The game will place them automatically.

The only problem is the dreaded bubble effect, where water doesn't penetrate the blocks containing the decoration. It looks ugly, and it's not easy to get around. I cheated in valleys_c to make water plants that look tolerable. The plant nodes have sand textures on the top and plant textures on the sides, but the node boxes for the plants are really thin, so you don't see the sand except below them.

Image

Note the bubble effect around the normal decoration on the right. The lines on the left are the selection box, and don't show otherwise.

I had to plant these using voxelmanip, but only because the effect is ruined if the block is exposed on the side. So I check to make sure it's surrounded by something other than water. If you make it part of a larger schematic, that won't be an issue.

Of course, if you make regular, cubic nodes, you don't have to worry about the bubble effect. That wouldn't be any worse than cubes for terrain.
Believe in people and you don't need to believe anything else.

Hey happy birthday you two!!

viewtopic.php?t=4627

Also check out Xanthins fork of Sea mod here:
https://github.com/Xanthin/sea

I personally like Xanthins simple-fishing mod which has a basic version of corals and seaweed from ethereal

Oh yes, I like to have the oceans spiced up with corals and waterplants. I'm used to use Topywo's Sea Modpack for that (it also has a way to deal with the air effect on plantlike nodes) and the seaplants in ethereal. Maybe you can look at them too for some inspiration.

I really should start to check now a topic for new posts before sending my replies.
Glad you like my little extraction, Napiophelios. :)

Sea mods looks great, but not enough diversity. I will model more corals, some sea creatures and add to existing mod.

More diversity in plants and creatures are very welcome! Looking forward to see what you will make. :)

Yeah, I think that to. I want to keep the blocky feeling as well as keeping it close to real world as possible. Brain coral and Staghorn coral are coming!

Staghorn coral, brain coral, and pillar coral respectively. Suggestion? I personally think that staghorn coral has to much geometries, not suit for minetest art style, but I don't know other way around it.

I have also been thinking about corals/reefs underwater in Pixture. The reason I didn't add them is because mapgen decorations cannot be placed underwater :(
Another reason is the way the water looks surrounding nodes in water.
Never paint white stripes on roads near Zebra crossings.

I think somebody must come up with a way to eliminate the bubble effect for non cubic block otherwise the coral will look very ugly.

Glow sponge and underwater vent are coming! If anybody have any coral types or creatures that you would like to have then ask me.

Any way that I know of might look ugly, but I might try to make a client-side patch to fix that.

It would be a bit hacky but you could make a nodebox that looks like water but make the box {-0.5,-1.5,-0.5,0.5,0.5,0.5} and then have place above the coral.
Many of my mods are now a part of Minetest-mods. A place where you know they are maintained!

This modpack would be very interested, and so would OldCoder.

Nice corals! Did they get integrated into the sea modpack already, as Inocudom suggested? I think that would be a good palce for them. The models are very nice and should not get lost.

I finally upload the .blend file. I didn't work on it for a while, but I will be more active once exam is over. You need blender to open the .blend file. I don't know about programming so there need to be someone to add to the mods. No need to give credit. Licence CC0.

I would like the hydrovent to spawn very deep, emits smoke, and make noise. Thanks.

More coral suggestions is welcome.

I can export everything in .obj format and can get the textures setup, but don't know anything about mapgen decorations, or how to make these appear, save for using ABMs, which I guess would probably work, but might not be the best method.
I record Minetest videos, Mod reviews, Modding tutorials, and Lets plays.

Won't they fit nicely into the sea modpack? That already comes with methods for spawning underwater plants. Corals would be similar.
