Wielded items are planned and should be fully possible with the current lua api. We just need to maintain one lua entity as the wielded item for each player (spawned when the player joins and removed when the player unjoins), have it copy the visuals of the item that player is holding, and have it attached to the tip of the right arm.

I'm sorry. I didn't explain so good. It could be possible create a 3d mesh for a wieded item? For example, a 3d brick or a 3d gun.

hey! i made an Oerkii and a DM some time ago, it still need to be texturized!

That's what i was thinking about. If we texturize them, then we can make them walk like a 3d player!

I like how the Oerkii seemed to glide or hover. I wouldn't even give it a walking animation o.o Kind of like a ghost.

Ah. That I don't know for sure, but I think not. Models are for players and lua entities, so unless a wield item can be set to "mesh" drawtype instead of "wielditem" then no. But that shouldn't be too hard to adapt to the current code I believe.

wait, does that mean, that you are making another 3D player?
AWESOME :D
Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?

Not me. Might make some other models for personal use, but later. I think the big concern is 3D animals / mobs for now, but I doubt I'll be diving into that myself (Blender is easy to use and the maker of the Mob Framework knows best what's needed).

Could be done with some code changes I think. A character editor menu will be needed at some point... it would be nice if the player's appearance could be shown there too. Also, we need a way to toggle between third person and first person views later on.

Make a rigged model in Blender, animate it in the timeline, and export it to the x format (enable the DirectX mesh exported in preferences -> addons first). Then in the lua script, set the entity's object properties mesh="filename.x" and visual = "mesh". See the player.lua script for the whole thing and how to change animations.

3rd person perspective is possible its a matter of changing the position of the camera scene node and drawing the player on the clients screen. IIRC editing the position of the camera node is simple although I am not quite sure about drawing the player.

Oh... just copy the models folder and player.lua script from minetest_game in the same position for your game. I think you need to reference player.lua in init.lua too and that's all. Glad it works :)

hey, I was just thinking that if we used a programmable model generator like POV-Ray then user could easily customize colors, and their set of characters could be generated, would also allow for things like clothes to be relatively easy to implement, by tweaking the generator program.

Why textures are blurry?

Are you talking about the texture files themselves, or only in-game? If only in game, you probably enabled texture filtering and mip-mapping.
