[Mod Request] Elevator or Vertical Air Movement

by RabbiBob » Post

I've looked at the cart mod for awhile and I'm not there yet for figuring this out, but that's the closest I've seen to what I've been waiting for.

Requesting either an elevator (block actually rises between two fixed points, carrying the player) or a vertical air lift where movement along the Y axis occurs between two fixed points (no block needed).

The elevator would require a switching mechanism and some planning.

The air lift could be done with an up lift and possibly a mechanism that decelerates fall before the point of impact (currently you can fall into one node of water and not take damage - create a node that is just like water with its own custom texture and that is done).

Code: Select all


                    [EndNode]
                        |
                        |
                        |
                        ^
                      upwards movement
                        |
                       +Y
                        |
                        |
           [Ground][StartNode][Ground]
Thinking about it more, just create a space where someone falls up rather than down.

Hate to nitpick but vertical movement is in the Y axis.

Good thing you didn't read it prior... I had lateral movement in there all night.

I started trying to make a lift mod, but I got stuck, and the solution was a lot of boring tedious stuff that the results of which were not guaranteed anyway, but found something that might make it easier a few minutes ago.

they are similar though. The problem is that minecraft has a completely different API.

I have quit minetest ... again. I am heavily unimpressed by both the game and the community.

take a look at my replicator mod (the mkII) you could use that, but instead of placing a new node at each iteration, you place the new, remove the old, wait()...then next forlooop interation.

now if you wanna move things, youd have to getnode the ones ontop (y+ the max height of things to move) and move those along too.

you could even just use something like playerobj:setvelocity(x=0,y=1,z=0)

I'm trying to work on this and I've got an abm and can isolate out myself as the object of interest, but getvelocity/getacceleration is returning nil to my variable and setvelocity/setacceleration with literals isn't doing anything to me. Can anyone confirm for me that this is implemented for player objects before I spend time digging around?

create transparent water, use that for elevators. otherwise yeah, youre looking at teleports for every floor. Personally i just bookmark certain locations, elevators are more for show.

maybe make an area where the gravity turns negative (not sure if gravity can be changed while playing (or even if negative gravity is possible in minetest)
