[Mod] Translocators (Simple Teleport) [xlocate]

Xlocate adds craftable translocators. When you combine the ingredients, you'll get a pair of translocators. Plant one, move to another location and plant the other. When you right-click on them, you'll teleport from one to the other. You can dig up either or both and move them at will.

This is a work in progress.

The source is available on github.

Code: LGPL2
Textures and Models: CC3

Mod dependencies: default

I've recoded this to use metarefs. Hopefully, it's more stable.

Allow me to telefrag poor innocent Minetesters and Mobs and I'll let you have an instagib rifle.
I'm still hoping for the day UT99 and UE1 is GPL'd.

Thank you!

Improvised Teleporter

I've added a single-use, improvised teleporter that will take you on a one-way trip to somewhere else. It's meant to be an alternative to starting over when you find yourself in a terrible location. Take all the stone you've dug up and make one of these to wisk you away. If you're using my experimental mapgen, it will show most of the available worlds to teleport to.

+ Spoiler


Warning: This teleporter is likely to drop you into lava, deep water, or high in the air. It can also teleport you into solid objects, which generally results in a horrific explosion. It wouldn't be as much fun if it was completely safe.

Recipe:

Nice. 64 stone, 8 coal? Pretty much only a problem if you start in permafrost. And maybe desert, since I think you need an axe to get cactus, and you need cactus to get the axe.

Maybe the answer is some kind of pickaxe you can construct from permafrost or desert sand? Since those are really the only places that can be tricky to survive and don't have wood. (Not adds to your mod, necessarily. Just thinking out loud.)

You can also use ice and charcoal, so that helps a bit.
