[Mod] MT Logo [mtlogo]

by duane » Post

This is a drop-in replacement for the old nyancat mod. I've slightly modified the code, but kept the original placement algorithm. Instead of nyancats, it places the name, Minetest, in rainbow letters at random points throughout the world. They're not terribly common.

You can also modify the messages table in the init.lua file to add any number of short messages composed of letters and spaces. A random message will be placed where nyancats used to show up.

Image

By default, any existing nyancats will be replaced by rainbow letters, provided there is room for them, along the same path as the original structure. They will overwrite stone, air, water, and (of course) nyancat rainbow blocks. Mining the letters will get you the same number of mtlogo rainbow blocks. Only a nyancat block itself (the head) will trigger a replacement with letters. Any other rainbow blocks will be replaced with identical mtlogo rainbow blocks (so you can remove the nyancat mod).

If you didn't quite follow the above, know that this mod will modify your world and any nyancats. If you aren't sure that you want this, don't use it.

There's no attempt to be faithful to the spirit of the original nyancats here. I just like hiding neat geegaws in my world.

Problems

- I've made no attempt to alias nyancat blocks to mtlogo blocks, as I don't know how that will affect the lbms that replace the blocks. Recipes dependent on nyancat will not work without changes.

- Obviously, you can only read the text from one direction.

Update

by duane » Post

I've added the remaining letters and support for spaces. You can now add any number of texts to the messages table and random choices will appear instead of nyancats. Note that they still appear in a single line, so one or two words would be best.

If your goal was to allow players to spell their name you might want to consider adding:
