Re: [Game] SkyFactory [0.2.1a]

Just wanted to mention that I also have a sky factory type sub game that I've been working on. I sort of stopped for quite awhile, but I'm going to work on it more. They way I handled the quest book was to use images instead of formspec text. It has a linear progression that helps vaguely guide you through most of the game. Once I have more made, I'll post it and you can take a look at it. It might be better to use something like that instead of the formspec fonts and stuff. I also have some other useful sky factory tools, such as the builders wand. You can defiantly look at what I've done and maybe use it as inspiration. Of course, different ideas for how to progress in sky factory games is what makes each of them unique.

Thanks for this game, it seemed clean, simple and interesting – the only downside was that it was a bit short and didn't clearly state that I had finished all the content.

I feel like the sieve especially could be used in a lot more games, thus making gravel more useful.
That and other bits (like the compost) are stuff I'll definitely be copying if I get to making minetest games myself.

Hey Amoeba, I kinda dropped this game.

And sure there wasn't much content because this was only the very beginning of a way bigger game.

Cool, I'm interested in what other things you create.

Oh, I don't mind if you have plans to continue. I just have the same wish for all creators who publish something incomplete: give a clear indication of where the current end is. (I was expecting a third page to open after I completed everything on the second page.)

Hey, Unarelith! :) There's a small problem with a quest: "Make Clay by mixing Water and Dust in a Barrel (0/4)"

I made the clay, I even crafted the clay-based crucible and made lava - completing that quest -, but the clay quest remains at 0/4. Can you please take a look at it?

In order to complete the quest, one have to put the clay on the ground and dig it.

Good gaming

I believe this mod no longer works since the Minetest 5.2.0 update.

That's seems correct, I've tested it and came to the same conclusion:
I've created a new world and as soon as I attempted to start the game I got the following error message:

I just stumbled across the "Unknown node: -64" in Minetest 5.2 myself.

It appears to be due to a typo in the current stable version of SkyFactory.

File: games/skyfactory/mods/skyblock/skyblock/skyblock.lua
Line: 42
Broken:

Code: Select all

skyblock.world_bottom_node = minetest.setting_get('skyblock.world_bottom') or 'air' -- 'air' || 'default:water_source' || 'default:lava_source'
It's missing "_node" from the settings name.
Fixed:

Code: Select all

skyblock.world_bottom_node = minetest.setting_get('skyblock.world_bottom_node') or 'air' -- 'air' || 'default:water_source' || 'default:lava_source'

When broken, this causes it to read a number from SkyFactory's 'minetest.conf' file instead of a node.

Code: Select all

skyblock.world_bottom = -64
skyblock.world_bottom_node = air

yes nice one .
hope that typo can be fixed in source so newbies can play straight off.

Indeed, it's too bad as this is on Content DB as a game, and listed as a Top Game on the Content DB website. It's either a holdover from 5.1x and earlier, or people are still downloading it because they want a skyblock game, and only downloads are counted...

I had recently discovered this same crash on 5.2.0, so i was poking around with the game and in-game. I've noticed some other things, other than the quest being rather short. Of course it is versioned as an alpha (not that you'd know from Content DB) and Unarelith did say they abandoned it.

Anyway... I've always spawned well above the island, resulting in instant death. Oh well, free boneblock, whatever. :D
There's this weird effect using bonemeal on a sapling if you only have 1 in hand. Sometimes you pick up the sapling, sometimes it is destroyed, and sometimes turned into an object. If it turns into a tree while you are doing this, the trunk bottom node is destroyed, or possibly instantly mined. Another thing is... unified inventory. I don't know what it is with the way it displays the crafting entries, but it absolutely murders framerate, making inventory difficult to use on wimpier machines. Doing a search for something with few results, e.g., "bed", definitely helps.

Last thing is the quest formspec. It's... unreadable. You can make out most (?) of the quests i suppose, but lines cut off and hint buttons covering the text is painful. So here's my cheap fix for /skyfactory/mods/quest_lib/formspec.lua:

Code: Select all

line		replacement code

20			local formspec = 'size[10,10;]'
21				..'background[-0.1,-0.1;10.2,10.5;goals.png]'
23				..'button[7.4,0;1,1;prev_page;<--]'
24				..'button[8.4,0;1,1;next_page;-->]'
54				formspec = formspec..'item_image_button[9,'..y..';0.6,0.6;'
Or here's the whole file with edits and original lines just commented out:
+ Spoiler
For all i know something could be changing with formspecs in 5.3.0 and this will need to be fixed again. Oh well. :) I'm sure there's a proper way to do it with word-wrapping and stuff. I don't even know if this is the old or new co-ord system, i'm largely code-stupid, so no warranties.

Thanks, this allowed the game to start again. But then I mined some tree leaves, it crashed again and now I can't join the world. :P I don't know how to fix the missing collision info problem, except for maybe hunting for a similar context in MineClone 2 and apply the same syntax. But lua is strange to me, and the game's API is also unknown to me, so low chances of fixing it, unless it's something really obvious, unlike the value tweaks you did. :)

Code: Select all

AsyncErr: ServerThread::run Lua: Runtime error from mod 'default' in callback luaentity_Step(): /usr/share/minetest/builtin/game/item_entity.lua:198: Collision info missing, this is caused by an out-of-date/buggy mod or game

I would just play this in an instance of MT 5.2, if possible.

The /default directory from the Minetest Game as used in SkyFactory may be out of date wrt the current version of the Minetest engine, and is conflicting with the current /builtin stuff. It is possible that you might replace the files in that directory with ones from the current MTG, making sure to only copy files necessary if it isn't a full clone of the MTG /default.
