third person mod request

by hyudez257 » Post

i really want a mod (thats easy to use) that you can see your person with. also if you could make it that it just shows the front of your character (like someone else is looking at you) with a simple command (maybe /view_TP and to go back to normal /view_FP) for windows. i am using 0.4.0 (stable) so if you could do this for me then thanks! would be better if download was just the link.

I dont think you can do this with a mod because there are no methods in lua (the mod language) to change anything (except the inventory) of the player. So what you want have to be implemented in the engine.

Well, actually there is. For example, the classes mod.

Hrmm? That can't move the player's camera, like this request is for. 3rd person view is still impossible in lua.

Well, if THAT is impossible, could you make a mod compatible with 0.4.4 that makes Minetest look like Minecraft? The Blockmen one doesn't work on 0.4.4. Thanks for telling me, though.

I lost interest in Minetest for a couple of years and... I am still not really paying much attention. I rarely browse these forums anymore but it's nice to see old faces.
