Try renaming the folder waterplus-master to: waterplus

I have done no tests, all I can say is that it depends on how much finite water there is.

This mod uses an Active Block Modifier to check if any of the surrounding blocks are lower than it is, and if so it starts flowing water into it.

So basically, a waterfall or a pond of finite water will not be that CPU extensive, but if you replace all default water with finite water... only tests will show.



My 3.2ghz processor runs it great
Check out my mod xtrablocks, has some different types of marble that you can build with or mine at different depths

I am not here regularly as I just kind of pop in and out. If you want to find me I'll be on quadcopterforum.com helping with multirotor builds and spending other's money haha.

I did do a speed test:

I have tested the speed of this mod on my system.

No finite mod (control)
Using the vanilla minetest_game
Frame per second: 40 FPS
Loop time: n/a


Just Finite
Just a few finite lakes and puddles
Frames per second: 35 FPS
Loop time: half a second


Finite Ocean
All of default:water_source was converted to finite
Frames per second: 8-20 FPS
Loop time: 30sec - 1 min


Loop time is the time it takes to cycle through all of the finite water nodes.
Basically, it is how long it takes for a node to flow / drop again.

Frequency doesn't do everything these days, number of cores, amount of cache and architecture matter a lot today. :)

I tried adding liquids_finite = true in minetest.conf (0.4.5 xyz), but nothing happened. afaik.

Sometimes the water gets stuck when you join after switching to liquids_finite. To fix that, you have to trigger a node update, for example, by digging a node adjacent to a body of water.

I have noticed that as well.

Can I modify this code for my Scientific Mod? This will be great for finite gas if I flip it and make the texture almost invisible.
I have stopped playing minetest, and may not come back to it again. I would like to thank everyone that made the amazing time I had playing it. This account is not in use anymore, and the email has been linked to a unused account. If any administrator reading this has time, feel free to delete my account. Thank you very much for the great experience.

Is it a bit too slow for your liking? You can try to increase the speed of the abm by decreasing the interval of the abm in finite.lua

Not detailed enough? Increase the water_finite_steps property in init.lua


How does one go about changing these now that this mod is stock?

You can change liquid settings by putting them in your minetest.conf file.

Look for them in the minetest.conf.example file. Copy the ones you want to use into your minetest.conf file. Change some variables and remove the # from the beginning of the line to get them to work.

Please notice that this is an old mod, and is not the finite in the Minetest game.

Thanks! Changing the update to something like 0.2 really made it smoother.

Unfortunatly, it doesn't visualise sheer drops very well -- it looks like the water is teleported down a sheer drop, you can't see it falling.

So if you have something like this...

Code: Select all
#      body  #
#      of    #
#      water #
#     ########
#     #
#     #
#######




... water will start appearing at the bottom but you won't see it fall down.

This has smashed my dreams of constructing a secret waterfall entrance that can be opened by blocking the flow using mesecon pistons.

:(

I'm not sure how to visualize what you mean and don't have much experience with mesecons (except the wires and the blinky plants :-) ), but maybe putting this in the groups of water_flowing and water_source: falling_node=1 (or in a node you create that replaces the node above the secret entrance), you can simulate the falling water.

In these versions(versions 0.4.8 and 0.4.7), they have finite liquid already.
