Don’t torches already have an on_place function? What happens with the existing one?
You can save the existing one from minetest.registered_nodes into a local variable and call in the new function before you do yours.
Note that I've recently renamed myself on github and co. to "Desour". (I'm bad at naming things.)
Feel free to call me DS.

I never thought of that. Mind sort of blown. :)

It is not enterprise. It's community edition but I installed the wrong package, so it does have enterprise features, if I were to buy a license. It's self-hosted.

Currently, you can log in using Icy Network SSO but you cannot create repositories. If you want to report issues, you can do it in this thread and if you have a pull request, you can create a fork onto GitHub and I can merge it from there. But keep in mind that when you put it on GitHub, you must not change the license.

Added Solar Generators plus fixed a silly calculation error in power transfer.

Nice addition! Did you end up having them degrade over time?

Not yet, but I'm thinking about adding some sort of mechanic to degrade them over time.

However, they are already pretty expensive to craft considering how much power they produce (8 EpU/s, only during day).

You could make batteries be more expensive and degrade, like in real life. This would make the solar generator's intermittent power generation a bigger disadvantage (also like real life).

Not specifically asking for a realistic mod, just noting that making storage more expensive might be a good way to balance solars without degradation, and maybe allowing their generation capacity to be increased.
Every time a mod API is left undocumented, a koala dies.

I will consider my options. At the moment, I am focusing on the fusion reactor.

The Alpha playtesting server is live at 195.201.143.173:30001 for anyone interested in playing around with Elepower (along with other mods). It's 5.0.0-dev, by the way.

The mod has tools that don't break when they 'run out', but they can be charged to repair them, right? Would you be able to do the same thing with armor?
What is SCP-055?

Probably. I'll look into it later!

I changed the Grindstone in a way that you don't have to break your finger and the LMB! Instead of that, I added a "Hand Crank", a node that you place on top of the Grindstone and hold RMB on in order to grind up your lumps and whatnot.

ElePower test server, 2018-10-08 12:46pm PST:

I created a chainsaw, charged it in a power cell to full, and then used it once on the base of a default tree. The server crashed and is not coming back up.

While I wait, I'll carve another notch on my belt <evil grin>.

How do you get lava_source into the fluid buffer of a lava generator? There doesn't seem to be a source machine to which you can connect the fluid_duct to get lava_source. There is no lava accumulator like there is a water accumulator.

Ah... TY! Seems awfully tedious though. I was hoping for an underground generator that did not require constant attention.

I could come up with something. I'll look into it. I am well aware that getting lava in this game is pretty difficult. You can use a portable tank to move 8 buckets at once, though.

Sorry about the lack of updates recently, I have been playing other games. But I'm still working on Elepower, slowly but surely!

Here's a sneak peek of the next update: https://i.lunasqu.ee/2018-11-08-17-30-46.mp4

Yeah, all I'm getting is a bad gateway to that link. Sorry.
