The mod linked to above is a good source of inspiration for your billboards, crazyginger72. One thing that you could gain from it is how to have your billboards display animated images and how to change what they show.

animated ones would be easy but seeing how this is a highres (512x512) doing a few frames will make a massive texture and most likely kill a mobile client, that said a smaller texture could be made to show many frames :)

We've had this mod on Ethic Rush for a few weeks now. one thing that amazes me is although the textures are fairly big, it barely affects performance both in lag or fps.

We have several billboards located within close proximity of each other at the newbie spawn, and looks great.

Anyhow thanks a lot for this mod CG we all appreciate your work :P

Hail there!I know I'm necrobumping,but I recently had the idea to learn modding and make some finctional advertisings,and I wanted to see if anyone had done this,so I searched on google "minetest billboards" and I found your modification.I have some ideas about the advertisings so please do,inform me if you'd like me to aid.I could also advertise some in-game modifications and the game itself,which is what is most probably going to happen.Maybe we could advertise this same mod!

Cool Mod! Thanks for sharing! ^_^

After extracting the zipfile make sure you rename the folder : bilboard and NOT billboard or you wil get failed to intialize init.lua ;-)

Hi this is my first time posting. I can't seem to get the coding right. What an I doing wrong?

{
title = "Army Billboard",
item1 = "paper",
item2 = "green",
item3 = "green",
scale = 2.0,
filename = "army",
imgtyp = "png"
}.

{
title = "flower1 Billboard",
item1 = "paper",
item2 = "green",
item3 = "green",
scale = 2.0,
filename = "flower1",
imgtyp = "png" ?


} -- bb_boardlist

it gives me spacing errors too

Thanks

Looks like the screenshot image is broken. I see the text "Image" instead of an actual screenshot.
