I don't play MC either, but I watch Stampy's YT videos. I always build in creative mode, but as far as I see mese *is* part of the crafting recipe for power rails already, isn't it?

The easiest solution is probably to turn mesecons off, then you don't need mese torches for the power rails to work.

The carts mod is a very clever hack so it's not as simple to modify and improve as many other mods. Even understanding how it all works is a challenge. Another feature I miss is that the player should turn as the cart goes around corners.

I think many mods by PilzAdam, as great as they are, seem to be forever stuck in the proof-of-concept stage: The carts mod proves that carts are possible, just as the nether mod proves the Nether can be implemented. But somehow these things never get honed to a point of full everyday usability for normal users. It's wonderful to have a nether so there is glowstone in creative mode, but as a practical source of glowstone in survival the Nether is far too small. And so it is with carts, they are a very nice tech demo but not very useful for maps yet. The person who understands the code doesn't seem to be interested in further development to get really mature mods.

Hm, I think PilzAdam (like many other core devs) is already quite busy with developing Minetest and does not have enough time to really play on servers. There are also technical limitations which the carts cannot easily circumvent.
A list of my mods can be found here.

Here's a quickie patch that lets the driver of a slowly moving (or stationary) cart punch it to accelerate it. Gotta love open source

Code: Select all

+    if puncher == self.driver and (math.abs(self.velocity.x)>1 or math.abs(self.velocity.z)>1) then
         return
     end
 
     local d = cart_func:velocity_to_dir(direction)

+            d.x = -1
+        elseif fd == 3 then
+            d.z = 1
+        end
+    end
+
     local s = self.velocity
     if time_from_last_punch > tool_capabilities.full_punch_interval then
         time_from_last_punch = tool_capabilities.full_punch_interval


Making the carts go a bit faster when they hit powered rail and weakening the friction should be trivial too. (But may have performance issues when the cart moves outside of the loaded area)

EDIT: Updated (typo: velocity.y should have been velocity.z)

Maybe that's the problem then, too many devs wanting to work on the Minetest engine and not enough investing a little time to bring existing mods to a more mature state. Perhaps MT needs an Adopt-a-Mod program. Or a competition, e.g. who can create the best Nether (bigger, with mobs) from Adam's existing nether mod.

My 2 cents, many mods need to moved into an official minetest game. Having mods scattered all over github is f******g useless when many of them are essential to a good game. Having more mods in the official repo will put more pressure on people to improve their quality including making the engine changes that are necessary to make them work better. Switch them off by default until they reach an acceptable quality level.

Spillz, I think the Minetest devs deliberately keep the default game very minimalistic (e.g. no mobs). This is why the Freeminer fork happened which seems to aim for a more full-featured default game like it was in Minetest-classic/-c55.

But no matter whether a mod like carts or nether is or isn't part of the default game, it's pretty clear that many players want mods like these, so they need to be improved anyway.

It doesn't matter if it's in the default game, but more stuff needs to be in the official minetest repos. As it stands, key mods aren't getting the scrutiny and patches they would get if they were part of the official repo. Yet anyone playing the various servers is playing them anyway.

IMHO, this mod and a very stripped down mobs/mobf (with a handful of nicely drawn, nicely animated and feature complete mobs) are essential. Arguably so is mesecons. All the whining about lua being too slow is a total distraction - just like with any other scriptable platform, you gradually add stuff to the c/c++ api to work around the actual performance bottlenecks instead of the hypothetical ones.

Plus with LuaJIT and LevelDB, performance is considerably better than that of stock 0.4.9. Less lag and stuttering in singleplayer probably means better performance on servers too. I can't complain about bad performance since I've upgraded from 0.4.9 to git builds.

No worries. I just posted a fix to the previous post (small but important typo)

I'm running minetest 0.4.9 on a linux system. carts is the only mod I've got installed.

So, I built a REALLY long railway to go from my castle to some interesting scenery where I wanted to do some more building. Gravity only for this rail, about 350 blocks long, drops one block down for every 5 forward. The track has only one turn along the entire length.

And it works great. EXCEPT, the mine cart kept STOPPING. Usually fairly near the end of the track, but not on the same node every time, but most often within about the same 20 nodes or so? Although it will occasionally stop just anywhere along the whole length. The cart doesn't slow down and then stop, I'm zipping along at near max speed and it just suddenly QUITS.

So I spent a bunch of time today trying to understand the cart mod, and sticking a LOT of print statements into the init.lua to try and trace what was setting my velocity to zero. And here is where I finally ended up. The velocity is being set to zero in on_step in the
-- Recalcualte the rails that are passed since the last server step
section.

I hit elseif old_dir.z ~= 0 then (because of the direction this section of track is going)
where it calls self.old_velocity, self.old_pos = self:calc_rail_direction(self.old_pos, self.old_velocity)
in calc_rail_direction we call dir = self:get_rail_direction(cart_func.v3:round(p), dir)
in get_rail_direction we first check to see if the rail is in front (as it should be) using if cart_func:is_rail(p) then
is_rail uses return minetest.get_item_group(nn, "rail") ~= 0 to determine if the node ahead is a rail.

But here is where it gets strange. This is running along, working perfectly, detecting that yes, the node in front is a rail, and then all of a sudden I hit a node that returns "ignore" for its name. Which means it's checking empty air, if I've understood your wiki correctly.

So for the rest of the track is_rail is returning values that look like this in my enhanced debug output:
*!* is_rail p x= 842 y= 32 z= -528 nn= default:rail group rail= 1
But then I hit a rail that instead of returning the correct value, it returns ignore:
*!* is_rail p x= 842 y= 32 z= -529 nn= ignore group rail= 0

Here is an image of where I stopped, I'm on node 842,32,528, and you can see that the next node is a rail:
Image
(that clump of dirt stuck on the side of the rail ahead marks the rail it couldn't detect on my previous test run)

Below is a screenshot taken after I removed the cart so you can see better.
Image

node 842,32,-529 is a rail. but is_rail is returning ignore as if it were blank air. (THIS run, the previous run it went past this rail without any problems at all and stopped a few ahead)

Below are relevant excerpts from my debug.txt output (these are all my added print statements)
Code: Select all
*!* grd* top pos x=    842     y=    32     z=    -527
*!* grd*     dir x=    0     y=    0     z=    -1
*!* grd*     d   x=    0     y=    0     z=    -1
*!* grd*     front d.y set 0  x=    0     y=    0     z=    -1
*!* grd* addf p x=    842     y=    32     z=    -528
*!* is_rail p x=    842     y=    32     z=    -528     nn=    default:rail     group rail=    1
*!* grd* israil front
*!* crd after grd dir x=    0     y=    0     z=    -1

(above works fine, obviously, but then on the next node we get:)

*!* grd* top pos x=    842     y=    32     z=    -528

        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:mese_crystal_fragment", "default:steel_ingot"},
        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:stick", "default:steel_ingot"},
        {"default:steel_ingot", "", "default:steel_ingot"},
    }
})

minetest.register_craft({
    output = "carts:powerrail 2",
    recipe = {
        {"default:steel_ingot", "", "default:steel_ingot"},
        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:stick", "default:steel_ingot"},
        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:mese_crystal_fragment", "default:steel_ingot"},
    }
})

minetest.register_craft({
    output = "carts:brakerail 2",
    recipe = {
        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:coal_lump", "default:steel_ingot"},
        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:stick", "default:steel_ingot"},

        {"default:steel_ingot", "default:coal_lump", "default:steel_ingot"},
    }
})



And this is functions.lua with my added print statements:
Code: Select all
--
-- Helper functions
--

cart_func = {}

function cart_func:get_sign(z)
    if z == 0 then
        return 0
    else
        return z/math.abs(z)
    end
end

-- Returns the velocity as a unit vector
-- The smaller part of the vector will be turned to 0
function cart_func:velocity_to_dir(v)
    if math.abs(v.x) > math.abs(v.z) then
        return {x=cart_func:get_sign(v.x), y=cart_func:get_sign(v.y), z=0}
    else
        return {x=0, y=cart_func:get_sign(v.y), z=cart_func:get_sign(v.z)}
    end
end

function cart_func:is_rail(p)
    local nn = minetest.env:get_node(p).name
  print("*!* is_rail p x=",p.x," y=",p.y," z=",p.z," nn=",nn," group rail=", minetest.get_item_group(nn, "rail"))
    return minetest.get_item_group(nn, "rail") ~= 0
end

function cart_func:is_int(z)
    z = math.abs(z)
    return math.abs(math.floor(z+0.5)-z) <= 0.1
end

cart_func.v3 = {}

function cart_func.v3:add(v1, v2)
    return {x=v1.x+v2.x, y=v1.y+v2.y, z=v1.z+v2.z}
end

function cart_func.v3:copy(v)
    return {x=v.x, y=v.y, z=v.z}
end

function cart_func.v3:round(v)
    return {
        x = math.floor(v.x+0.5),
        y = math.floor(v.y+0.5),
        z = math.floor(v.z+0.5),
    }
end

function cart_func.v3:equal(v1, v2)
    return v1.x == v2.x and v1.y == v2.y and v1.z == v2.z
end


Since the problem seems to be with a result coming back from minetest.get_item_group, I'm assuming this is NOT a problem with the cart mod? Should I move my question into the bugs forum?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Nice debugging! Unfortunately this is an engine issue and is unrelated to the carts mod itself.

You should open an issue at https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/new, where the minetest core devs can take a look at it. This is tangentially related to issues #529 and #572, but was not the direct topic of discussion and should deserve its own issue.

Maybe try calling the function again if you get node=ignore

That is an excellent idea!
BUT, when trying it, I just got ignore the second time as well. :(

* sigh *
This would take more work, but what about caching the next x pieces of track?

I realized you could use Voxel Manipulator to get a block's name.

If you add this:
Code: Select all
function cart_func:get_content_voxel(pos)
    local t1 = os.clock()
    local vm = minetest.get_voxel_manip()
    local pos1, pos2 = vm:read_from_map(vector.add(pos, {x=-1,y=-1,z=-1}),vector.add(pos, {x=1,y=1,z=1}))
    local a = VoxelArea:new{
        MinEdge=pos1,
        MaxEdge=pos2,
    }
     
    local data = vm:get_data()
    local vi = a:indexp(pos)
    local railid = data[vi]
    local real_name = minetest.get_name_from_content_id(railid)
    print(string.format("voxel-ing rail: elapsed time: %.2fms", (os.clock() - t1) * 1000))
    return real_name
end

to functions.lua, and changed this:
Code: Select all
function cart_func:is_rail(p, is_voxel)
    local nn = minetest.env:get_node(p).name
++  if nn=="ignore" then
++      print("oops")
++      nn=cart_func:get_content_voxel(p)
++  end
    return minetest.get_item_group(nn, "rail") ~= 0
end
code, it seems to work

PS:
It is MUCH slower, but it works

The issue probably is that the engine on the server side fails to keep the MapBlocks around the player loaded properly, probably due to a bug.

The vm:read_from_map solution works because the VoxelManipulator Lua interface will force-load the requested area before returning anything.

There is also a force-loading API, but I took a look at its current state and noticed that it's too crappy to be recommended to anyone. Expect it to change to be better sometime during... eh... this year.

EDIT: It seems like the original problem might be fully fixed by this:

https://github.com/minetest/minetest/commit/baee91bf78cdc17a401ad82ee14e2917d44be8fb

Please test with latest git.

That WORKS! Thank you VERY much!

That does sound right. But please excuse my ignorance, I'm new to git. How can I find the latest linux binaries with the updated code? Or would I need to pull the c code and do a build?

That would make it easier.

Thanks folks! My cart runs all the way through now without stopping!

Thanks spillz!
I upgraded to the latest build minetestc55_201403250545-0~2670~ubuntu12.04.1_i386
and now I no longer get an ignore, and yet the cart stops anyway. I now seem to be getting values of air and cobble when it stops. Should be impossible to get a value of cobble, since the only stone around is all covered by rail. It looks like the cart might actually be losing track of its place. Since I also got some strange results where the cart stopped below or above the track.

(the above picture resulted in a LONG fall into the water... :)

I have debug.txt output with extensive extra print statements if anyone wants them.
If no one else is experiancing similiar problems, this may be unique to my system. I'm having trouble with just about any mod I try to add. Most of them seem to crash minetest. So far I can use inventory_plus, zcg, and carts. And carts is flaky.
And in vanilla minetest I get an occasional error where my x coord suddenly goes to infinity (well, max long int) and I have to reset it in singleplayer. So my problems may all be related to... me. :)

Why if I Ride the Cart its Always Separating the Rails ?
