How about

Code: Select all

[Mod] Forest and related mapgen [forest]
or something like that.

Tried out the latest version last night, this mapgen has seasons that run in real time, the flowers, snow and ice change through the year. There is a 'clock block' that when placed and pointed at displays time and date on the screen.
Gael de Sailly, what are the 'sand way' 'gravel way' etc. nodes? Mysterious ...

Mod testing scheduled tonight!
7:42 PM - Bauglio: I think if you go to staples you could steal firmware from a fax machine that would run better than win10 does on any platform
7:42 PM - Bauglio: so fudge the stable build
7:43 PM - Bauglio: get the staple build

I tried it out after reading this. It's indeed a beautiful mod.

These nodes have raillike drawtype. When you put them on the ground, they connect automatically, like rails. They are decorative and can also help the player to find his way. Try to make a path with sand or gravel ways (the small heaps, in inventory), I think it's very beautiful in forests and... give a pastoral look that I like.
Just realize how bored we would be if the world was perfect.

Please consider having this mod support mods that add additional plants and ores to worlds. Below are four great mods that add plants:
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=7207-undergrowth modpack
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=7143-dryplants modpack
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=6921-ferns mod
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3898-plantlife modpack
Doing this task could make your forest mod more customizable and more popular in the end.

To anyone that reads this, how could custom mapgens be capable of such a thing? What would have to be done?

Well, it looks like Gael de Sailly might not be coming back for... Quite some time.

Bas080, Sokomine, and MirceaKitsune, what do you think of this mod? I recommend giving paramat's version of it a try:

I can't download from Mediafire as that site is broken. It does require Javascript for something that does not need Javascript.

It would be really nice to have the trees and forrests from this mod/mapgen together with mods like undergrowth etc. - they'd fit together very well. As for the spawning of the trees, perhaps less complex code might also do. Plantslib comes with some code that also spawns saplings for moretree trees (which then grow into those giants).

Look below. You should be able to download it now. If you can do anything for it, that would be great.

Thanks! I'll take a look at it (though paramat is the mapgen expert - not me :-))

Yes i removed my version from mediafire, the official latest version of forest does use my speed improvements so forestpm2 is probably redundant now. I'll look at the code for that error.

Will Gael de Sailly let you put this mapgen on GitHub?

Re: [Mod] Forest

This error comes from the code for seasons. After line 49 of seasons.lua, I have forgotten this line :

Code: Select all

new_node = {name = "flowers:dandelion_white"},
I've defined several types of seasonnal transformations of plants. And the "transforms" needs a field "new_node", which does not exist. So on calling

Code: Select all

minetest.set_node(pos, params.new_node)
(init.lua:124), we call set_node with (pos, nil).

I've not found this problem before because I've just tested a little, thinking my brothers and my sister would play Minetest and tell me if there was an error. And I've a little forgotten Minetest.

I've corrected this error and updated the download at the first page.

You might want to add an option that controls whether there are seasons or not.

The volcanic biomes seem out of place and uninteresting (their surfaces consist of stone.) You might want to fix them up.

Would you consider adding support for the following mods?

Re: [Mod] Forest

I will think about it. And I will completely rewrite my mod.
Mossmanikin's work looks interesting, but I have not yet had time to play it or to analyse the code.

During the two latest monthes, I don't spend a lot of time on Minetest. I have a project on Löve (another Lua environement), and generally I spent less time on computer (awesome weather) and especially I had my baccalaureate.

But now, I am determined to continue working on Minetest, and create a Forest 2.0…

When doing the rewrite, a good thing to do is to allow for mods that generate ores, plants, and structures to do so. However, not even paramat has ever done such a thing. The only person that ever did anything of the like is Nore with his mapgen (he added support for Calinou's moreores mod and RealBadAngel's technic mod.)

If you wish to, you could use the following mod (the pedology mod by Wuzzy) to create ground covers for your biomes:

Any progress lately?

I took three screenshots of this mapgen. People might care about it more if they see it in action:

Gael de Sailly, are you still working on this mapgen? If not, could you let others fork it and continue work on it?

Yes, you can continue my work, I have not really the sense of property, my aim is to improve Minetest and not to get a reputation for some things that I have made myself.

I think Minetest has a big potential but it is still not completely exploited, for example about the mapgen.

In brief, you can continue my work.

This kind of situation will be perhaps more convenient to manage with Github. I have troubles to understand how does it work.

Actually, I've changed my project. I work on a "mapgen library", a mod which adds features for the map generation. I will post a new topic on it.
