You are right, DD.
Glasslike makes all sides the same texture and fixes the problem that allfaces_optional has, all faces optional means you do not have to have a different texture for each side but doesn't support transparency, like a chest has a fixed number of sides you have to supply textures for, so does furnace, so do plants, plants have no top or bottom and only two sides, you have to supply those textures, all faces optional means that only one is required. Drawtype means more than just 'sides' it also specifies direction, and whether or not the block is a block at all, It makes fencelike types connect to eachother and torches like an object. It is like adding more parameters to node definition like if a node is wallmounted it can be placed on a different surface of the wallblock, facing north, south, east, and west but you don't see any of these things most of the time, but the signlike drawtype which is used for doors. If you wanted to make an object that can be placed on walls, ceilings, floors, and wasn't drawn as a block, you might use torchlike. Then you might use paramtype = light which would give you other options like the intensity, as far as i know, that would be in the variable param

Thanks! I'm thinking of pausing this project, and then creating a very simple scripting language that will let people create mods much easier than with LUA (it will compile it to LUA).

I agree to this lkjoel. Although Death might be upset a little, but that will pass.

wait, let me rephrase this. I will work on a scripting language that makes it much easier to create mods. This project is above my skill level. If anyone can take this project over, I'd be more than glad :)

@DD, you should be able to understand the scripting language no problem, so you still will be able to create mods, just not with a graphical interface.

Yes I understand:D I'm sure it will be easyer than the .lua stuff^ ^ I really have tryed to make some mods by example with other mods, trying to Frankenstein some code. I have some stuff I will release like that but there are some ideas I have that I wouldn't have the slitest clue how to code unfortunently.

Yeah, this was just too hard for me, as I'm not an HTML/JS/CSS coder (and I can't stand JS, it's just so illogical). If anyone wants to take this project over, please do!
I'm still working on the library to make mods easier :)

You know what would really be handy?

I need an app or a script, that will parse init.lua files looking for Register_craft, and generate the crafting table image so i dont have to do by hand every time i update/create a new mod.

I could do it easily in php, but i dont have the time :S

Basically any kind of texture and craft indexing would make the administration of mods and modpacks n times easier lol

Cool. +1
Check out my mod xtrablocks, has some different types of marble that you can build with or mine at different depths

I am not here regularly as I just kind of pop in and out. If you want to find me I'll be on quadcopterforum.com helping with multirotor builds and spending other's money haha.

Modding is more than only "minetest.register_node()", so you'll still have to learn some LUA...

Yes I know, I stopped working on it for too many reasons, one of which is: "payback is not worth the work" lol

No, it was canceled due to it being completely useless, and me putting way too much time and effort into it (and me having like millions of other projects to work on :/)

Oh...Maybe in the future you, will come back to it since it looks, cool looking and Minetest needs it own, Mod Forge.

Do you still have it? the one on this photo?
