Thanks :)

I would love to add glowing seaweed, and in fact I'd like to add countless cool things to the oceans. There's two problems. The first is that Topywo is working on a Sea Modpack (which has some underwater glowing algea) and I don't want to step on his toes. The second is that the only way to have plants (or much of anything) truly underwater (and not in a pocket of air) is to use the nodebox drawtype (don't quote me on that, and if I'm wrong someone please enlighten me), which is what Topywo is doing.

Nice mod. The night and the caves can use some decoration.

Glowing stalactites/stalagmites and uses for harvested mushrooms/worms?

Thanks :-) But I couldn't and wouldn't mind at all if others make underwater mods too.

I definitely need some uses for all the collectible glowy things. Not sure what though.

Right now I'm working on fireflies, but at some point I'll try my hand at some underwater stuff as well. I was actually thinking it would be really cool to do a whole merfolk game, but that's a topic for another thread :)

Changes in 1.5 - added fireflies, tweaked cave worms

Fireflies look much cooler than the picture, but it's very hard to capture them well. I took a video, but it needed editing and my software wasn't cooperating.

Use / crafting suggestions are welcome.

changes in 1.52 - fireflies: fixed swarm bug & tweaked occurrences

Sorry for the quick update. Fireflies were sometimes misbehaving and I didn't know how to fix it, but after sleeping it over the answer came to me.

This sounds very nice, for I like fireflies and cave worms. Is there an ABM that allows these things to appear in old chunks?

I'm not sure what you mean. What are "old chunks"?

Ah, okay. Fireflies should appear properly in already generated area when Glow is added. The caves worms are simply registered as an ore, and the mushrooms are created on the generation of an area. So for those I guess that's a no, not yet.

I'm actually not sure how to do this right, so any assistance is appreciated.

I'm not sure if this is the assistance you're looking for. I found this piece code very helpfull to suppress too many seaplants in an area. It also takes in account height differences.

Code: Select all

local pos0 = {x=pos.x-12,y=pos.y-12,z=pos.z-12}
local pos1 = {x=pos.x+12,y=pos.y+12,z=pos.z+12}
local stemsgreen = minetest.find_nodes_in_area(pos0, pos1, "seaplants:stemsgreen")
if #stemsgreen < 1 then

changes in 1.60 - switched to ABMs to populate already generated areas.

Thanks Topywo. That actually was helpful. And thanks Mossmanikin, for the clarification.

Inocudom, now I've got you covered. Sorry it took so long. Hopefully my ABMs are all properly calibrated.

I'm not actually back, I just grabbed minetest over the weekend and did a bit of work on glow.

Re: [Mod] Glow [1.70]

by bdjnk » Post

changes in 1.70 - worms are now their own 'signlike' nodes.

If you're updating an existing install of glow, everything should just work. Old style worms should disappear. New style ones should gradually appear.

Cool mods! I like it. BTW I model several corals in blender, but there is no mods to generate it in minetest yet. The models is license under CC0, feel free to use it. And more to come.
