Minetesting's traffic signals, roads and cycleways mod http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=1982 . There used to be also some road stuff in madblocks http://www.zimg.eu/i/594114332 (link to the recipes). Then I found this one http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=2613, probably the one qwrwed mentioned. And the tar in the building blocks mod http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=674. Maybe you can integrate them together with the authors, or with their approval?

Btw, your asphalt looks good :-)

Well, I really don't want this mod to depend on other mods, but thx for your opinion and your suggestion. If you like it, you can watch for future versions with things like: manhole (maybe a working one), Crosswalks (seems to be useless), signs and direction arrows. All this will be stored on website, which is only created for this mod.

Does not have to depend. I wrote this code snippet:

Code: Select all

function node_implement(modname,n_ext,n_int,resultfunc)
         if not minetest.get_modpath(modname) then
            resultfunc()
         else
            minetest.register_alias(n_int,n_ext)
         end
end

node_implement("farming","farming:flour","food:flour",function()
   minetest.register_craftitem("food:flour", {
description = "Flour",
inventory_image = "farming_flour.png",
})
end)
It checks for a resource, aliases it if it exists, creates if not.

If it does exist, you can redefine the item to change its texture

Ok, this might be helpful, ruben, but I'd like my mod to be independent. Sry

I do something similar in my pipeworks mod. If home decor is present, pipeworks uses the plastic sheets therein for the crafting recipe that needs it. If it is not, pipeworks defines the plastic sheet on its own using the same name as in home decor.

Idea:
use one asphalte node and make the stripes signlike nodes. That way people can lay the road quickly and worry about traffic patterns after :-)

Better idea: lay plain asphalt nodes, then *paint* them by laying those signlike nodes - but those signlike nodes should cause the asphalt node they are placed on to transform into whatever the signlike node indicates. Then the signlike node disappears, leaving only the painted asphalt node.

thats adding one after_place_node(), an add_node() and a remove_node() to achieve the same result, and you're declaring twice as many nodes. Why not customize selection_box instead?

Well for starters, signlike nodes float above the surfaces they're placed on, and if you place one as paint and leave it there, small items like torches, fences, anything that's partly transparent, etc. can't be placed there and still show the stripes on the road.

So unless you can point to specific locations on a node (edges, center), it's better to paint the road the way I suggest, even if it does result in twice as many node defs.

Minecraft classic servers usually have a "paint" command that allows to replace blocks by clicking on them. That is very practical when building larger structures. The screwdriver from technic is likewise helpful. Maybe such a paint-tool could become more general than just for "painting" the lines on roads?
A list of my mods can be found here.

if the selection_box is 0/nil then it wont get highlighted, and if he makes the stripes buildable_to then they dont get in the way either. less lag if the mod doesn't have to switch nodes for every block of road added.

But if they're buildable_to, then the stripes will disappear entirely when the signlike node is deleted in favor of the other item being added.

That would be realistic, but it's hard to use this tool for all kinds of stripes, arrows (next version) etc... I'll think about it :)
