[Mod] Lifters [0.2] [lifter]

by Splizard » Post

Introducing simple lifts for minetest!
Image

Simply craft the lift with the following craft recipe:

wood stick wood
wood mese wood
wood stick wood

Now place your lift in a shaft or next to a wall. Right click on your lift to get on it and then tap spacebar to go up a level or tap shift to go down a level...
So easy!!!
If you want to stop the lift at any time, press the "use" key.
Now that you have reached your destination simply walk off the lift :)

If you want to be able to call your lift, create a lift door:

stick stick stick
stick door stick
stick stick stick

Place this in front of a lift shaft with a lift block and you will be able to call the lift!
The doors will automatically open when you get off the lift :)

Nice mod, I like the idea of having a way to get up on high hills by using this node/entity.

That's not possible. The entitiy removes and replaces itself with a regular node if there's no player attached to it.
Look, I programmed a bug for you. >> Mod Search Engine << - Mods by Krock - DuckDuckGo mod search bang: !mtmod <keyword here>

Perhaps you could introduce a proximity mechanic to call the lift. For instance, have a block to one side of the lift shaft. When active, look for a lif block within, say, 100 meters up or down. If yes, then call it. Another possibility would be to add control blocks that move the (empty) lift up or down. You might need to add the ability to name lifts, so you can specify which lift a controller goes to. It's not quite a call button, but it is close.

@AceWill
I have implemented lift doors, they work quite well :) They can be a little bit buggy so just be warned, this is version 0.2!

If you want to be able to call your lift, create a lift door:

stick stick stick
stick door stick
stick stick stick

Place this in front of a lift shaft with a lift block and you will be able to call the lift :)

It would be easier to try mod if naming would be bit friendlier. I suggest to rename repo into lifter so users does not need rename when cloning or downloading zip. No need to say what it is in repo name description and readme for this information is designed :)

Btw, lifter_door missing textures, probably could be reused door textures if lifter door textures aren't yet ready.

I like mod simplism aspect.

Thanks for your feedback, I added the texture :)

I would normally have a user friendly download, I will get my website up with the mod featured.

Don't fear github, it's no stranger for ppl who looking to download MT mod. Personal websites come and go more often than such giants as github (your code will likely live longer on github). I hope you do not abandon github once personal website will be setup (github allows renaming repos) ;)

Now back to mod. I did not figure out how lift doors work (doors opens but lift does not moved down), but I finally learned how move lift down :) (found info in first post). My suggestion would be add one chat command for player who step in lift just to remind that what keys he can control lift.

mod fails to run with this error:
attempt to index field 'lifter:door_b_1' (a nil value)
it points to line 93 in init.lua.

I see you override that node in line 97, but I never see it as being defined. Was going to record a mod review on this, but with it not working I can't right now. :(

Thanks for letting me know! I fixed it, the default doors mod was quietly modified and it broke doors. It will work now :)

diehard139 and tmanyo you can also use an older version of this mod if you don't want to update minetest_game.

Could you also make lifters connected to each other. Than we can make a bigger elevator.
And maybe on_step function to link player to lifters. Than we dont have to right click on it.

If you say that

I can confirm that the issue that mahmutelmas06 is having is present on Ubuntu 16.10 too. I just built Minetest a couple days ago too.

I'm currently inactive in the Minetest community! So if I don't respond, that's why.
