like the well this is part of the simple mobs mod thing so like this:dofile(minetest.get_modpath("mobs").."/api.lua")

mobs:register_mob("mobs:dirt_monster", {
type = "monster",
hp_max = 5,
collisionbox = {-0.4, -0.01, -0.4, 0.4, 1.9, 0.4},
visual = "mesh",
mesh = "mobs_stone_monster.x",
textures = {"mobs_dirt_monster.png"},
visual_size = {x=3, y=2.6},
makes_footstep_sound = true,
view_range = 15,
walk_velocity = 1,
run_velocity = 3,
damage = 2,
drops = {
{name = "default:dirt",
chance = 1,
min = 3,
max = 5,},
},
armor = 100,
drawtype = "front",
water_damage = 1,
lava_damage = 5,
light_damage = 2,
on_rightclick = nil,
attack_type = "dogfight",
animation = {
speed_normal = 15,
speed_run = 15,
stand_start = 0,
stand_end = 14,
walk_start = 15,
walk_end = 38,
run_start = 40,
run_end = 63,
punch_start = 40,
punch_end = 63,
}
})
mobs:register_spawn("mobs:dirt_monster", {"default:dirt_with_grass"}, 3, -1, 7000, 3, 31000)

mobs:register_mob("mobs:stone_monster", {
type = "monster",
hp_max = 10,
collisionbox = {-0.4, -0.01, -0.4, 0.4, 1.9, 0.4},
visual = "mesh",

1. An important help for a modder is the file debug.txt. Delete it. Start a game. Wait till the error happens. Exit minetest. Open debug.txt. Scroll till the ERROR part. That part gives you essential information about the first error you made it encountered.

If you don't understand the ERROR, paste those error-lines in a post in this topic.

2. Your approach to use an existing mob-mod is good. You could start to change 1 thing at a time in the code, then another one. What important is, is that if you change a name, you'll also need to have a texture with the same name. When you change the mod name, you'll need to change all the 'old' mod names in the new one, including those in the textures folder.

3, The attitude of your mob and its environment will be the hardest part to code. See also the api.lua file of PilzAdams' simple mobs mod.

4. Last but not least. When you have managed to make a working mod, check the licences of the parts you copied and apply those and find a license for your own contribution. Give the one(s) you copied code or textures from the proper credit.

Starting with entities isn't the easiest way to start modding. There are only a few modders that have made moving mods. So the best of luck.

Some Lua documentation that might help you in the long term:

If your mod is still not loading, try removing the space or changing it to an underscore _. That may fix that part of your problem.

In other words change the name of your mod to evil_squids
Make sure that this mobs:register_mob("evil_squids:randomsquidname", {
is what is at the top. Put the name of your squid type, no spaces (although you can put _ ) and preferably no capitals, where I have written arandomsquidname

Does the model for the squid exist already? A (modified) friendly squid would be welcomed in my waters :-)
A list of my mods can be found here.

Looks like the problem here is the empty spaces in the names.

Also, there is no such thing as an inksack in default (Not that I know of)
However, making an item version of one would be easy with:
Code: Select all
minetest.register_craftitem("evil_squid:inksack", {
    description = "Ink Sack",
    inventory_image = "inksack.png",
})


You need to make an inksack texture and call it 'inksack' It must be a .png picture.

Add it (I think) to the end of the init.lua

In the depenbds you should the name, one per line, of any mod that this mod cannot work without. In this case you will probably need to put in the Simple Mobs mod (put the actual modname, not just Simple Mobs)
