[books] Books Mod

by tinoesroho » Post

Hi!

Sorry to hear that it's broken. I don't maintain this mod, but you should check out it's modern successor: Bookex. Kaeza includes it as part of his mods collection - you can download it all as a zip, here. - tinoesroho

Stop! Before you decide to try out this mod, you should try:
- Mossmanniken's memorandum mod

Bookshelves could be allowed to have three books.

I don't know how that could work, but it is a good idea. Books could be written inside of and bookshelves could have slots specifically for them. This gives books and bookshelves a good reason to exist.

I like the idea. Maybe the map mod could use some code from it. +1

No problem. The license is WTFPL. You can also add the download link to the first post and add something like "Dependencies: default" so it fits the forum guidelines.

You should try to make the input box on the right page as big as the page itself. This will make it easier to edit the page.

It works for me. What is the SPECIFIC error message?

It looks like the method used to check if the pencil hit the bookshelf isn't working properly in 0.4.6. This _should_ fix it. I just don't know if it will- I use only 0.4.5. Let me know how this works!

Books, for 0.4.6

You should post the error message above the "END OF ERROR FROM LUA".

This mod is very useful for keeping build notes at the project sites.

I noticed that it stores the text in the log very much like sign text is stored.

Is it possbile to update this mod to create plain-text files for each "book" and store them in a "book" sub-folder? The text files names created by a title field in the "book" screen and a scroll bar for long text entries?

I've tried kaeza's wiki mod. It's a good mod and useful when used as inteneded but it has a limited number of wiki-pages and the pages aren't site specific like the "books" bookshelves are.

The "books" bookshelf next to a cottage contains build notes, reminders, specs, instructions, adventure story segment, mystery story clue, etc. particular to that specific cottage.

The wiki mod opens to a main page where you have to figure out which subpage referrs to this cottage among a dozen or more other cottages which doesn't work well when looking for design details of a specific build.

If you are creating a story map, the wiki mod shows everything in the story. No searching for clues. Spoilers are too easily found. Why bother traveling to different sections of the map as you follow along the story line when the whole story is there in the wiki mod? These are areas where the "Books" mod has advantages over the wiki mod.

Hopefully these will give other's ideas on how the "Books" mod can be used and improved.

Mossmanikin's Memo Mod would be excellent, combined with a modified Prestibags mod, and the bookshelf inventory code.

So, there's an idea, and it's quite quite feasible. In fact, I think it's quite doable as a modpack (memo, bookshelves, "prestibooks"). The only real work would be to override the default bookshelf with a 3x3 storage (not hard), and changing nodenames in prestibags, and then replace textures/have it override default:book

EDIT: I wasn't thinking too clearly when I wrote that. :-/ Work would have to be done on changing the formspec to a "reader", which would display the text from the slots.
