Hi, i'm relatively new in minetest and just got in this forum to distribute a mod I've made to keep longer time underwater.

The idea is just an extra air to give you more time to explore and survive under the water. It's a simple tool you can craft out of some metals and use like a bucket, never breaks but needs to be filled.

Just use the tank when underwater low breath

So it's an air tank, when you're underwater and your air is running low, just use the air tank to refill your breath. The tank capacity is shown as a tool been used, so when it gets empty you can't use it but it won't vanish. You need to go to the air and just click to use the tank so it refill itself. Don't need to go all up the surface, just find a block of air, where you can breath, and refill.

Depends on DEFAULT MOD (Thanks RSLRedstonier for notifying me and xeranas for clarifying that default mod is not really default)
Recipe (Only ingots):
Bronze Gold Bronze
Iron Nothing Iron
Iron Iron Iron

looks cool although if the recipe uses bronze gold and iron then at least the recipe depends on default mod

Honestly, crafting recipes are just a soft dependency.

Survival worlds aren't all worlds, some servers are better off with zero crafting recipes.

I prefer this mod for breathing underwater:https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=15376&hilit=scuba
Granted, it gives unlimited air, but it takes at least a little while to get 7 steel blocks' worth of iron.

Thank you for your question.

Mine mod is just the tank, the craft recipe is simple and uses just bronze and iron ingots. You refill the tank in the air, so you don't need to come back, just find a block of air. It helped me to explore the cave's full of water.

I wanted something more easy to craft, to use at the beginning of the game to help mining caves full of water. At same time I didn't want to make it so easy, so you must carry to use and refill. With infinite breath it get's too easy.

But isn't the default mod present in any world by default? What recipe do you suggest?

Yea, 'default' is worst minetest mod name, actually exist in minetest game (default world). Some subgames copy it some not. I do suggest add default with question mark (optional dependency) and register recipe only if such depency exist that way your mod will be portable.

But, if I do this, the tank will exist in a world without the default mod? Or it will just be ignored?
I'm searching here and every block is part of default, how can you play a world without default mod?

I've changed the first post telling that there is dependency, thank you.
