How would I add blocks from other mods to the list of blocks supported by stairs and the circular saw? For example, add mithril_block from the moreores mod.

I found a bug in the latest stable download, running Minetest 0.4.7:
Attempting to craft a cobble slab (three cobble across), I get no texture in the preview of the crafting screen. When actually crafting the item, the error comes back as

Code: Select all

ACTION[ServerThread]: player singleplayer crafts moreblocks:nothing
The item attempts to be placable, registering this error when placed and then disappears:

Code: Select all

ACTION[ServerThread]: singleplayer uses moreblocks:nothing, pointing at [node under=-2,2,0 above=-2,3,0]
My directory structure is:

Code: Select all

/usr/local/share/minetest/games/minetest/mods/moreblocks/

If this is the same 'bug' as found on the landrush server, (and expecting that i did not missunderstood you), this post at the beginning of this page is the answer:

Or is that just supposed to be like that, due to the circular saw? (which works fine) It's just that if I accidentally craft an unknown object, I can't undo that, and it's just annoying.
You have to make the stairs and slabs with the circular saw.
Interesting about new things is, to figure out how it works ...

Hmm. this must have been changed in the mod at some point. I know that on other servers (not just landrush), a saw was not needed for creating slabs. Hmm. What can we do to disable this "normal crafting" situation (vice the sawing situation), since it's apparently buggy now?

You could prevend this mod from overwriting the default recipes. For example the slabs within moreblocks/stairsplus/slabs.lua
starting at line 118:

Code: Select all

    -- Unregister default recipes

        minetest.register_craft({
            output = "moreblocks:nothing 1",
            recipe = {
           {recipeitem, recipeitem, recipeitem},
           },
       })
Just comment this out (its the first solution i saw when taking a quick look). Therefore i cannot give any garantuee for this solution.
Also within the stairs.lua (same directory) beginning in line 228 there is something similiar. That should stop the redefinition of this recipes.

Stair/slab crafting enabled by default; there is now a setting for disallowing stair/slab crafting.

I can't seem to make rope, for some odd reason. I stick 3 leaf blocks in vertically, and nothing shows up in the output box.

Hey Calinou,

is there an option to disable the humble stupidness with the screwdriver? I am not playing minetest to get a feeling being part of "Tool time" to rotate slabs or anything else. Even it isn't a medieval tool, so we cant build up medieval without it. Could you please change this behavior or just split it with screw driver or without cuz its really annoying!

Thanks for reading.

Use my replacer mod. That helps at least when you want to set up more than one node with the same orientation. There's also a command inside stairsplus/moreblocks to change the orientation afaik.

I usually place the first slab/panel by using a helper node (i.e. a glass block placed above the node for fixing a panel to the ceiling; one behind the node for wall-mounted) and only use the screwdriver when that fails. All further nodes are placed with the replacer.

There was a time/version when using moreblocks/stairsplus became very annoying because it was close to impossible to place slabs and panels the way you wanted. The current version works quite well.
A list of my mods can be found here.

Yes, moreblocks might be a big problem there as it affects a lot of nodes. Some few textures may also have changed. AFAIK newer versions come with abms that transform old moreblocks blocks to new ones (mostly). Discussion about problems with that ought to happen in the moreblocks-thread in the forum so that other people who have the same problem can see which solutions where found.
Sokomine and LazyJ appear to have found an issue.

Another problem:

[01-19 08:10] <Misty@VE-S> the stone brick half slabs are becoming unknown items when I dig them
[01-19 08:11] <twoelk> Misty, can you place half slabs?
[01-19 08:11] <Misty@VE-S> yes, but digging them up again turns them into unknown items
[01-19 08:12] <twoelk> can you place the unknown items?
[01-19 08:12] <Misty@VE-S> I'm talking about the half thickness slabs, not the panels.
[01-19 08:13] <Misty@VE-S> oh twoelk, I haven't tried placing an unknown item....I'll find out.
[01-19 08:13] <Misty@VE-S> nope, can't place it
[01-19 08:13] <VanessaE> what happens when you try?
[01-19 08:13] <VanessaE> do you get an error?
[01-19 08:14] <Misty@VE-S> no, I don't see an error, it just can't be placed.

I'm not modding and/or playing minetest anymore. All my mods were released under WTFPL. You can fix/modify them yourself. Don't ask me for support. Thanks.

This should be fixed now (tested by myself).

i found a small bug with the super glow glass when cut with the circular saw: the glass you get doesn't make the glass-breaking sound when digging it
(i think that this is with all kinds of glass)

i found onother bug:
the jungle sapling displays smaller in the inventory, if this mod is installed (activated).
i tested it without this mod activated and then there wasn't this problem.

this is how it looks for me:

i have installed the stable version 0.4.9

edit: i found another bug.

when i use stone brick in the circular saw, i can place them normally, but when i collect these placed blocks, i get unknown nodes

the jungle wood fence and jungle stick recipe is not on the first post.

the jungle fence should be darker, (should be close to jungle wood planks)
it is hard to see the difference if you put a normal fence beside a jungle fence.
