[API] Register poles and lamps (modpack) [streetlights]

This is a work-in-progress API!

Register streetlight poles and lamps via an API

The API provides two functions that allow registering conductive poles as well as lamps. The API registers them with all the necessary functionality for conducting the Mesecons signal. The two other mods in the modpack are examples on how to use the API.

Most basic setup: Mesecons signal into the receiver, from there into a pole, from the pole to the lamp.

For using the API all you need to do is depend on it and register anything you want. Or simply get the modpack as a whole since it contains two more mods that utilize the API to register a basic set of lamps and poles.

Left: All lamps are toggleable; Right: Some poles are disguised as other nodes

For connecting the Mesecons signal to the poles a receiver is used as shown in the first screenshot. To craft the receiver you just need some stone and other material.

Enough for seven lamps.

The receiver is provided by the API and does not need to be registered manually.

Obtaining the modpack

Info: Only streetlights_api is needed for registering own lamps and poles!
Depends (API): default, mesecons, mesecons_extrawires
Depends (poles): streetlights_api, walls?
Depends (lamps): streetlights_api
License (all): GPLv3 or later,
Download: Latest version (always compatible with latest non-dev Minetest version)
… or better use Git: https://gitlab.com/4w/streetlights.git

This is Awesome! Thank you for this API!
