[Mod] Glowstone [1.2] [glowstone]

by BlockMen » Post

Hi everyone,

I made a simple mod that implements "Glowstone". It's crafted like that:
stone stone stone
stone mese_crystal stone -> Output: 4 "Glowstone"
stone stone stone
Glowstones can placed anywhere and be used as alternative light source with a little higher lightlevel than torches. When block is digged it drops one "Glowstone", so you won't loose it.

Furthermore you can make stairs and slabs out of glowstone.

Screenshot:

(added blocks)

Depends:
default
stairs (optional)

Download:
Version 1.2: Download

works with Minetest 0.4.5 or later

Please give Feedback and ideas for improvement

I have quit minetest ... again. I am heavily unimpressed by both the game and the community.

Thanks. I have seen that you are developing a Nether, so maybe you can implement it ;)

Nice mod BlockMen! I was playing around with your mod, next thing you know im building a glowstone house in my creative world :)
Really nice mod, I would also like to suggest a different recipe.
Change your current one with this:
C= Cobblestone
T= Torch
M= Mese
C
C T C
C
OR use this!

Thanks! If you have done your building, could you upload an image? :)

To your recipes: I thought about torches too, but decided for mese cas it should be a little bit rare, like in mc. Your second recipe is a good idea, but a bit too expensive i think.

Would that recipe be better?

cobble mese cobble

Glowstone is a light node, so it would need a torch. But that recipe seems fine!

That mod is called Bees and Candles and has been written by darkrose. It works very fine and is a nice addition to the game.

Regarding the glowstone mod, perhaps a smaller nodebox-version like the one in homedecor might be useful as well in some places.

You can't use floating point light values, also LIGHT_MAX is kinda useless today (max light level is 15 currently).

Would it be an improvement, when I change the recipe to following?
stone stone stone
stone mese_crystal stone -> Output: 4 "Glowstone"
stone stone stone

Notice: stone is every kind of Stone, so: Cobblestone, Stone, Dessert Stone, etc...
Or would mese_fragment be even better?

I'd go with the crystal here, given the amount of stone you're using.

Be sure you run those stair/slabs/etc through the circular saw in moreblocks and keep them out of the creative inventory to reduce clutter.
