[mod] Space Shuttles [rocket]

rocket


Minetest has many great space mods that add in outer space thousands of blocks above the player's world, such as space and other_worlds. However, none of them have a good way to reach outer space-- until now. With this mod, you can craft rockets / space shuttles and fly them into and in outer space.

+ Screenshots

+ Crafting recipes

+ Controls overview

+ Controls explained

+ Inspirations

+ To do

+ Dependencies

+ Licence

Rockets can now crash / crash land, so be careful. Make sure to land slowly and not hit any asteriods when in vertical mode and make sure nothing is even close when speeding in horizontal mode. TNT and vacuum are now dependencies, but I might make vacuum an optional dependency at some point. Also, the horizontal rocket collision box has been fixed.

Space shuttles now have life support systems.

8/20/2019
Vacuum is now an optional dependency.

8/21/2019
  • New liquids (oil and rocket fuel)
  • Better explosion code
  • A new recipe and two updated ones
+ Old screenshots put here for archive purposes


8/22/2019
  • Some bug fixes
  • Rockets now have a thrust sound
  • Now you have to slow down the rocket to change modes

8/23/2019
Rockets now produce particles even if they have no drivers. The point of this update is to allow for better screenshots.

8/25/2019
Oil and rocket fuel are now nonrenewable.

9/5/2019
Rocket fuel can now be used as a furnace fuel.

cool mod, but it really needs texturing.

Thanks. I'm not sure why the texture is broken, but I think it's because I used a certain file type for the rocket 3d model.

Edit: the textures have been fixed.

Could you localize the sound instead of playing it to all players in a server?

Also to make it a bit better with protection can you have the boom/explosion happen at the node right Before the impact instead of the direct impact node? It replaces a node with the explosion, even if its protected.

Nice simple rocket though! I like it.

I was able to generate a server/game crash too by being in a rocket, restarting the server, then rejoining. However it worked after the initial crash/error.

Code: Select all
2019-09-29 20:32:28: ERROR[Main]: ServerError: AsyncErr: ServerThread::run Lua: Runtime error from mod 'rocket' in callback luaentity_Step(): /usr/share/games/minetest/mods/lib_items/rocket/init.lua:379: bad argument #1 to 'sound_stop' (number expected, got nil)

I'll look into these problems and fix them.

Edit: I localized sound and fixed the explosion glitch. I haven't fixed the server crash error yet, but I know another way that it happens in game: If the explosion of one rocket causes another rocket that is unoccupied to fall, then the latter rocket will attempt to explode and stop the sound, and the attempt to stop sound will crash the game.
