Screenshots?
My mods: The Nether | Doctor Who (WIP)

I have quit minetest ... again. I am heavily unimpressed by both the game and the community.

I had to think about it for a while (without screenshot), Now I read it again and saw the screenshot. I now think this is a very good help for all kind of players.

Great idea! With minecraft there is no way to read recipes in-game, but with this mod in Minetest we can view recipes in-game, making Minetest better than Minecraft a little bit more :D

Looks like someone found my code to be useful. It looks to be a little modified but I can definitely tell some of my code is in there. Not accusing you of anything. I was actually wanting to put a crafting output system into my inventory mod but can't find a simpler idea than what you have.

ashenk69, some of the code was copied from the creative_inventory module (i will add credit into my code). Without your code I would not have been able to achieve this. Thanks so much!

One note, I found that the pagination needed a little tweaking. I basically made it so the item is not removed from the stack when you goto next/prev page. I think I twiddled with the pagination logic a little too.

Brilliant idea of yours to use an inventory slot to paginate.

Also thanks to everyone who helped and to everyone who made other modules which also helped me understand the code.

The code goes into init.lua, depends.txt can be empty, or have the word "default" (without the quotes) inside it. Put all that in a folder called craft_sign and you are good to go!

I really recommending changing the default.lua aswell so you get to see all the crafts, not just the ones that load after this mod.

I tested it with a few mods and it seemed to work. Perhaps the mods you have can also use other mods that you don't have. Which mods are you running?

I think I was able to get it to register all the crafts that are in the game. By moving the craft recording code into a separate mod folder. I set depends.txt file to depend on nothing and the crafts variable was already a global variable so you can access it in any other mod folder no problem. So now it stores all the mod crafts and it still stores the default crafts even though it doesn't print anything out for them in the debug file. I also put in a check so it didn't crash every time you would try and put in an object that didn't have a recipe.

Was working in one world, now this comes up when I try to place the sign:

Code: Select all

ServerError: LuaError: error:
...bin\..\games\minetest_game\mods\craft_guide\init.lua:259:attempt to index
global 'crafts' (a nil value)
stack traceback:

in register_craft.lua (in your default module, if you copied it there)

make sure this line:
crafts = {}

is before this line:
local minetest_register_craft = minetest.register_craft

it should be that way in 0.0.2, let me know if you still have issues

in init.lua there is a NOTES section. At step 3 I forgot to remove the comment.

Line 47:
--dofile(minetest.get_modpath("craft_guide").."/register_craft.lua") -- comment out this line

Should be:
dofile(minetest.get_modpath("craft_guide").."/register_craft.lua") -- comment out this line

Or, better still, follow the 3 steps to include all craftable items.

It applies to all the files in the download. What else would it apply to?

It is possible to have different licenses for code vs. textures, and you're supposed to indicate it in the post. Anyway, noted and moved! :-)

Thanks VanessaE!
