Simple mod for that:

Code: Select all

minetest.register_on_respawnplayer(function(player)
    player:setpos({x=0, y=0, z=0})
    return true
end)
Put this in [your_world_name]/worldmods/respawn/init.lua (you can use a different modname if you want to).

Does this only Works on respawn or on spawn to? Or Must i use:
minetest.register_on_spawnplayer....

It should work for new players too.

You could use my ServerExtended mod and enable the admin tools module, which contains /setspawn.

If a worldmods/ folder is in your world mods from there are loaded too. So you can create worlds wich use some special mods (for adventure maps etc.).

There's no particular reason to write extra code for this. The built-in scripts have it covered. Just add a setting to your conf file.

static_spawnpoint = 7.5,7.5,7.5

The problem with this is that its in minetest.conf, so not in a per world setting.
My simple script (see above) in worldmods/ would be only for the hungry games map.

I tired to set the static spawnpoint setting into the config but it didn't work.

Different worlds have different setups. Why would you not use a separate conf file for each world?

Like conf files, that code could be used in only one world, or in all of them, depending on how you set things up.

Maybe other code is interfering with it (such as the code above). By default though, it should work.

What if we want people to be able to choose a spawn position, but have a static spawn on account creation?

Why doesn't anybody look in minetest.conf.example

Code: Select all

# If this is set, players will always (re)spawn at the given position
#static_spawnpoint = 0, 10, 0

I do. I wouldn't know how to do half the stuff with it that I do now if there wasn't the conf example. :P

No, I want people to choose their own location.

Depending on someone's technical experience, conf files can be fairly difficult to decipher. Even just getting past the wall of spam they present can be intimidating for new users who are not experienced with such things.
In order to change yourself, you must believe the change is possible and that there are rewards for making the change.

In the base dir of a run in place build, like the windows builds.

If you used apt-get, or similar, then it doesnt exist.

You won't be able to find it unless you compiled it from github.

Link to the Github minetest.conf.example. You can use copy/paste (to minetest.conf). To get a line working remove the #.

... Install the beds, and then they can set it by sleeping in one. Or the bookmarks mod- just use that search function up at the top.

This is a link to the sethome mod:

http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=741

When the search function generates too much results, you can use the advanced search and limit the search to only released mods and general modding.

I know, but this mod isn't a spawn point, and the beds mod didn't work for me.
