You can use this tutorial: http://www.tinyurl.com/mt-tut

Chapter 2 --> copy paste the next lines in the init.lua instead of the ones from given example. The example uses deprecated commands:

minetest.register_node("tutorial:decowood", {
tiles = {"tutorial_decowood.png"},
groups = {snappy=1,choppy=2,oddly_breakable_by_hand=2,flammable=3},
})

After the tutorial, to learn a bit of lua, use the code from the init.lua in the default folder/directory and later on the code from the init.lua from other mods.

To make textures use a painting program. Better start with 16 x 16 textures. Easiest is to open a texture (they are called .png) from the textures folder that's in the default folder change it and use 'save as' to save it in your mod's texture's folder.

To be safe, make a copy of minetest to a folder named something like "celeron55-minetest-9696ed3-nightfighters mods". Don't forget to check (put on) the hidden files view, you'll need those. That way you can test whatever you like, without disturbing your brother.

Have fun!

Nightfighter if you are still having trouble modding you can have a look at my Decoplants mod: http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=3151. You can browse the code to get the basic idea of a mod.

I think you can use any text editor or word processor to write mods.

Most direct: get a mod and doubleclick on the init.lua. You can now change the content.

It would be more helpful if you put the file in a zip folder and put it online. that way those trying to help can take a look at exactly what is going on to better help you out. git-hub works well, they can take a look at the code and file setup without downloading anything.

For crafting you do this:

Code: Select all

minetest.register_craft({
    output = 'example:example',
    recipe = {
        {'', '', ''},
        {'', '', ''},
        {'', '', ''},
    }
})
The output is what the recipe will give you. Put a number after it to make it give you more than 1 of the item.
Inside the recipe there are 9 sets of quotation marks set up like the crafting grid inside the game. Put the ingredients you need to make the item in here.
For instance, the recipe for a mese pick:

Code: Select all

minetest.register_craft({
    output = 'default:pick_mese',
    recipe = {
        {'default:mese', 'default:mese', 'default:mese'},
        {'', 'default:stick', ''},
        {'', 'default:stick', ''},
    }
})
