[Mod] Ancient Runes [0.1.3] [ancientrunes]

Ancient Runes

Image

This mod adds the 24 runes of the Scandinavian runes alphabet (fuþark) to your Minetest game.

Burins
The burin is a new tool, which can be crafted with the following recipe:
Code: Select all
R     flint     R
      stick
      stick

where R is one of wood, stone, steel, bronze, mese or diamond. If the moreores plugin is installed, the silver and mithril burin become available, too.

Whenever you punch your burin against a stone node, there is a small probability to drop Iron Powder or Mese Powder. The likelihood of that drop depends on the node. Stone nodes with an iron lode drop a plenty of Iron Powder, while you will find lots of Mese Powder near mese deposits.

If you mix Iron Powder with Mese Powder, you get the magical Rune Powder, which allows you to craft 24 different Runes. These runes can be attached to Stone, Sandstone and Obsidian Blocks. Enjoy!

Nice mod, runes could also be used to cast spells.

Example #1: a Thurisaz (thorn) rune could deal 1heart damage.
Example #2: eating a Raido (ride) rune (bread + rune) would make the player move faster for 10 seconds.
Example #3: a Kaunan (torch) rune could be used as fuel.
etc.

I've made the Italian .po, it's attached to this message (rename it to it_IT.po).
I've taken the liberty to modify the strings this way:

Rune Name - Rune Meaning - Letter
material

e.g.:

Berkanan - Birch - B
stone block

It's funny, I implemented some runes in LATE demo
I opted for a kind of engraved rune stone.

Looks promising, only two things I noticed:

first is your rune_powder recipe:

Code: Select all
minetest.register_craft({
  type   = "shapeless",
  output = "ancientrunes:rune_powder 5",
  recipe = {"ancientrunes:iron_powder 4", "ancientrunes:mese_powder"}
})


That is not really working very well. It does not show up in craft guide of unified inventory like this.
I had to look in code to find it, beeing unable to craft any powder. Also after crafting rune_powder, 3 iron
dusts will stay in craft grid.

Then it would be nice if the rune could be applied by punching a node with it.

Thank you for your feedback. I will have a look at the crafting recipe issue. In my very first draft you actually engraved the runes with your burin. The idea, that you can attach runes by punching nodes with the runes is nice and I will try to implement this during next week.
