Mod: Gemstones 1.5.0

by ZLovesPancakes » Post

Gemstones!

This mod adds gemstones to the world, which can be mined and crafted into tools and blocks.
It includes amethyst, ruby, emerald, sapphire and cubic zirconia (yup, I'm avoiding diamond), but I'm planning to add more gems in a near future.
The recipes for tools are the same as the normal ones (replacing iron, stone, etc. by gemstones), and a block is made of 9 gems.

This version adds no new gems, but it should be working with the new item definition rules which came with minetest 0.4.dev-20120122-1.
The mod depends on MarkTraceur's add_tool, but I think I'll write my own function for tools if it doesn't get updated soon.

The latest version is gemstones 1.5.0
You can find all versions in the downloads page.

The classics + amethyst. some ores, sapphire and ruby

This is my first modding attept, so I'm willing to accept any sort of critique / help / suggestions / requests.

Hope you like it :)

I made the original door textures, that's why they look so ugly.

Might want to update. I think I tried using this mod on 0.4.dev-20111203-3 and had to modify the mod to get it to work. Some things have changed with modding in the last couple dev snapshots.

I'll try to add all the birthstones, at least, but any other gem that passes through my mind will get in. I don't know if all the stone can be replaced by gems if there are too much of them... I'll dig into that later.

And yes, I constantly pull the latest commits from git, so the mod may not work with older releases. sorry!

I think what you should do is to create objects that are crafted with these minerals. You could make armor, statues, ...
I installed it and i think that the minerals appear almost in the surface

This is a hole in the surface.
Edit: The minerals appear in the bottom of the water too. I suppose that is a bug.

Hi, OP, I still think it would be better to move your project to gitorious--we have a few modders there in a group already:

https://gitorious.org/+minetest-modders

That would make it super-easy for developers to keep track of each other, and keep all the mods in one place!

Can I borrow one texture design please. I want to use it in my pack, and I WILL BE RE-COLOURING IT. (MC Diamond.)

EDIT: I'll also give you the diamond block in return.

ZLovesPancakes,

If you'd consider joining us over at Gitorious, we'd really appreciate it....we currently have several modders there already, and I'd like to have a central location for these projects. That way, we all know where to look :)

gitorious home: https://gitorious.org
minetest-modders group: https://gitorious.org/+minetest-modders

Hope to see you soon :)

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I've been away from the computer for a few days.

And to answer some questions:
  • I don't like the height check because the gems would not spawn inside mountains and that kind of stuff above the ground.
  • Yes, you are free to use the textures for your projects, I have no objection.
  • About Gitorious... well, the thing is I have bad memmory for accounts (and their passwords), so I prefer not adding another one to the list, but I'll take it into consideration.
Sorry if I misspelled something. I'm good at reading, but not at writing.

Hey,

I'm trying to port your mod to depend on mine (add_tool), but you appear to be manually changing each tool's properties. Much easier to use basetime to talk about how fast the tool is, because that makes it easier to abstract out the tool definition :)

I'll probably post a patch later.
