Code Golf Competition

by rubenwardy » Post

Winning

For each competition, there are two categories you can win:
  • The shortest mod measured in characters. (code golfing)
  • The most obfuscated mod (the hardest to understand how it works)

Competition 1 (Closed)

  • Adds spikes which kill the player when touched and then explodes, destroying blocks in a 5 node radius (sphere).
  • The mod has to run on vanilla minetest_game and Minetest engine, without any additional mods.
Winner for both categories: PilzAdam.

7:42 PM - Bauglio: so fudge the stable build
7:43 PM - Bauglio: get the staple build

I am not sure if you are trolling or not.

That is not a radius. It needs to explode in a sphere. I have clarified the top post.

Here is my submission: https://gist.githubusercontent.com/Pilz ... tfile1.txt (paste it to init.lua in a mod folder; name doesn't matter).
You can use this image (move it to textures/a.png in the mod folder) if you want (not required for the mod to work) (I "wasted" over 50 characters to make the image work): Image

I have a "clear" version of this that is 1053 characters shorter, but I thought this is more fun.

EDIT: Can I submit both versions?

That is hilarious, very well done.

I guess you can, one for each category.

I might give a shot at the shortest code. I'm not a lua syntax master though, so I might not do very well.

EDIT: Good thing it is an easy mod to write.

If you hadn't specified the whole "spike" thing, then I think it would be obvious that the Air Sword mod wins BOTH categories. It's impossible to make a mod with less code, AND, reading through the thread makes it obvious that many folks still can't figure out how it works. :D

The idea of the contest is very intresting, although the current issue is nothing I'm intrested in. Hope there will be subsequent contests with other topics :-)

What about using old mod requests (without telling this) for contests? So the mods which were requested (and ignored) some time ago would finally be created.
+1 Of course, there would have to be a twist on it (if it's a fairly easy mod to create)

Just add "and then explodes" to the end of the old mod request description. :)

I actually had that idea for the moon mod. I think it's a bit much for this kind of competition though.
