[Mod] Instant Buildings [V 5.0] [instabuild]

by Dan Duncombe » Post

This mod is based heavily on thefamilygrog66's instacabin mod.
The base code for spawning the structures is from worldedit.

It adds several items, which are used to spawn in various types of building.

Protip: as a general rule face along the positive z axis and the buildings should spawn in front of you.

Depends: Default, Worldedit

Thanks to Evergreen for the V 2.0 Buildings.

This is a good idea, seeing as there are mods like this in minecraft. I'll test it later.

Good stuff, Dan! It's cool how mod ideas evolve, and combine with other ideas to form new mods.

Hey Dan,

I've shortened the Item Registration section for this:

Code: Select all

--Item Registering

local instabuild_list = {
    { "Small Hut Kit", "small_hut"},
    { "Large Hut Kit", "large_hut"},
    { "Small House Kit", "small_house"},
    { "Large House Kit", "large_house"},
    { "Small Warehouse Kit", "small_warehouse"},
    { "Large Warehouse Kit", "large_warehouse"},
    { "Small Farm Kit", "small_farm"},
    { "Large Farm Kit", "large_farm"},
    { "Short Tower Kit", "short_tower"},
    { "Tall Tower Kit", "tall_tower"},
    
}

for i in ipairs(instabuild_list) do
    local builddesc = instabuild_list[i][1]
    local build = instabuild_list[i][2]

    minetest.register_craftitem("instabuild:"..build, {
        description = builddesc,
        inventory_image = build..".png",
        on_place = function(itemstack, placer, pointed_thing)
            if pointed_thing.above then
                local file = io.open(minetest.get_modpath("instabuild").."/models/"..build..".we")
                local value = file:read("*a")
                file:close()
                local count = instabuild.build(pointed_thing.above, value, minetest.env)
                itemstack:take_item()
            end
            return itemstack
        end,
    })
end
It makes it really easy to add new items too, since you just have to add their description and name in the array at the beginning.

I LOVE this mod! It made building a city so much easier!!!:)

Check it out:
Server name: Mineville

The only problem was that it overlapped some of the other buildings :P

Something I've always found to be a good addition to a roof is a slab on each corner.

Edit:Also some new building ideas would be small walls and large walls
I'll make some files soon if you like

Any additions would be great! If you could make some good walls and stuff that would be cool. When you say adding slab to the roof corners I assume you mean on the flat roofed huts?
EDIT: I will also correct the out of place planks on the warehouses (The ones that are at 90* to the rest)
EDIT 2: If there is any way ofmaking itso the building always spawns with the door facing the player, please tell me.

Hey everyone! I have just released Version 3.0!

New things:

Large house now has a proper window instead of a hole on the top floor.

Crafting recipes now include a mese fragment to stop endless materials being made.

FACTORY! It is a medium sized building with 3 special blocks used in the making of it (The lights, catwalks and skylights).
It is empty but is designed so that you can fill it with Technic Mod machinery. No machinery is included. There is a sort of office that allows you to view your machines at work from inside a small room. I will release screenshots of it soon. You should place it on a relatively large flat unobstructed place for best effect. I took simply ages designing it.

EDIT: Added screenies of factory.

The Mod is a great idea, Did you get the idea from the Minecraft Instant Structures mod?

Yes and no... It is also based of the instacabin mod (see first post).

Here is an example factory utilising mesecons and pipeworks. It smelts items for the operator. I had to slightly modify the office to use the lever.

Yes I mean slabs on the bottom corners of houses and huts
Btw you mentioned putting the structures in .we format I have searched this format and can't find a description. Can you explain what .we format is?

A .we format is basically a text file with the extension .we
It contains all of the data required for each node in the file.
It is the format that the WorldEdit mod uses, hence the we letters.
You can open it with any text viewer, like notepad, kate, wordpad, notepad++ etc. The reason it is used here is because I can make the buildings and save them using the Worldedit mod, and just use the outputted file in my mod.

To make life easier, if you make any new buildings for this, name them appropriately, for example large_house, factory, tall_tower. Don't bother making textures for the item, I will do that.
All new buildings, as long as they are sensible, are welcome.

V4.0 Now out! Will soon update first post.

I have added a more modern house made from stone brick. I have also added a mansion. The mansion is unfurnished and unlit, so you can make it personal inside.
I now consider the items to have tiers. The higher tiers take more mese to make.

Tier 1:
Small hut
Large hut
Small house
Small farm
Large farm
Short tower
Small warehouse

Tier 2:
Large house
Modern house
Tall tower
Factory
Large warehouse

Tier 3:
Mansion
