[Game] Magichet: "The 1.2 'Non-Commercial' Release"

by 4aiman » Thu Oct 30, 2014 15:40

A new game which utilizes some poltergeist and some industry within ethereal realm.
It is compatible with Minetest.
However, to fully enjoy it you'll need a Magichet client. (see below).

Magichet client is FULLY COMPATIBLE with Minetest's servers!
However, Minetest clients is not.
You still should be able to play on Magichet server using Minetest client, but some features just wont work for you.
Should MT adopt MGC changes, the compatibility will be full.

You should update 4mcac to use the latest awards. It supports translation without Jacky if statements. It also uses HUD now. And now has awards.register_trigger.

I should get rig of both of them and create a simple achievements mod for Magichet.
Until then I really have planned to use yours awards :)

Expect an update after every bug mentioned here.
There are already 3 of them after the release. (yep, all just commited)

By posting your sub-game here, you made a wise decision.

Do not use the dev branch for gaming. Use master. (Removed unnecessary biomemap from master)

Alright!

Good idea making cross compatibility.

As you can see, philipbenr, it's not as compatible as I've thought.
The strange thing, I have none of these errors in the recent MT build.

But I'm not going to encourage anyone to update MT to the latest dev. I'd rather make Magichet backwards-compatible with stable versions.

On the other hand I do encourage everyone to use git or svn to get newest versions of Magichet.
Although it's only 4.6 Mb now, it still may be inconvenient to have to update frequently.
Maybe I'll try to introduce rolling updates so Magichet will fix critical error by itself.

Also, I want to hear from anyone who already had or just going to try Magichet about HUDs.
Do they work for you? It is a problem for me to make pumpkin helmet to draw a HUD sometimes. (even though I've wrapped them all into minetest.after)

Edit: Have encountered "deprecated usage of statbar w/o size" warning. Does this have smth to do with this?

I've fixed hunger :)
Was able to eat once per 1-1,5 gaming days (depends on activity, like it should).

Pretty much thanks to some Guest3493 who has joined my home server today at 11:16:49 with IP [172.56.31.53] I've fixed arrows behaviour. Mobs now can really shot other mobs!

Thank you, whoever you are, Guest3493 :)

Your way of adding Russian translations is hacky, with if statements. Use kaeza's intlib or similar. The translations are added as locale/ru.txt for example. Where RU is a valid language code.

It's clear that you haven't tested my game, Ruben :)
First, I'm not using translations ATM - the game's is in English for now.
Second - I had heard you telling about translation before and have considered your words quite a while ago. I understand what an advice is - a notion, not a must.
Third - there's A LOT of features I should worry about before I even starting to think about translation and delete those ifs.
Forth - You probably is not very familiar with Russian language. Intlib can't be used for Russian since it is a inflected (or flectional) language while English (which I just can't abandon) is not. You may want to check this: https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?p=137146#p137146 before you continue to claim I'm a hacker. If you have an idea how to help me combine different types of languages - I'm all ears.
Fifth - if the usage of "if" clause is a hacky way - go ahead and do your stuff w/o it :) I don't know any languages but Russian and English. I can translate only into those 2. Any additional language will require 2 things: (a) polished game and (b) a collaborator who speaks that additional language and know his language grammar better than I know English grammar myself. So far no one wished to add stuff to Magichet. And I'm glad there are ppl who test the gameplay.

So, any volunteers to make a good translation?

What sounds do you want? Name it - I'll think what I can do.

If anyone have a free soundpack (CC, CC-BY, CC-BY-SA, PD, WTFPL and alikes) or just a single sound file - tell me, I'll add it and you'll be in the list of "Tell them 'Thank You Very Much'" guys and gals.

There are some default sounds from Adam's Minitest subgame. (Yes, Magichet is it's ancestor just like Jojoa's "Overcraft 1".)
I considered adding some ambient sounds, but have postponed the actual addition.

I'm open to all suggestions and, as anyone can see, every time the server crashes, there are new fixes. Keep crashing my server! :)

Also, do not use greenstone yet - torches mechanics is incomplete.

I'm surprised there are no views at all :)

I am sorry there was sound, just my sound on my computer wasn't working, again sorry this is a great game only wish you could find coal more often. I would recommend that people download this game and play it.

For Ambient music, could you use a better version of jp's edit of the Ambience Mod? It works well in multiplayer.

Here's some sites that offer free music (Not pirate, I mean free to use)

http://ccmixter.org/
http://freemusicarchive.org/

Here is a search I did for CC by SA tracks on Freemusicalarchive.org

Thanks, Esteban! :)
I'll try to find smth appropriate.
But do mind that I want to add some more entities, like birds, bats, etc to produce those ambient sounds.
What about music? Do I need smth Terraria-like?

Also:
MORE!!! I want more people to crash my home server!!!
I know, the server isn't that stable, but every crash anyone makes I look into the code and fix the issue.
My server runs the dev version of Magichet and during the time it's online it has helped me to do the following:

fixed scubagear
fixed solar panel change
entity<->entity following is broken
3dchest, enchantment fix + greenstone/redstone compatibility ^
fixed greenstone torches, no overheat control ATM
furnaces fix
restore Zeg's Craft Guide
broken redstone
some more quick fixes
fixed mobs shooting mobs

Quite a list for only 3 days!

And what's more important, today I had to wait for 8 hours before server has crashed!
We CAN do 24 hours, right?

PS: if anyone want a mod to enter Magichet - fork it on github, add that mod and make a pull request!
I'll try to blend that into the game ASAP :)

PPS: I think it's time to speak on the matter of balancing. Any complaints?

Glad to hear it from you, Ten :)
It's not so good on a server, though...
Needs more testing and optimizing.

Also, please, do NOT delete the following text in russian. I need it to be here. Pretty please?

Народ, я вас ОЧЕНЬ прошу, скажите мне, когда я в игре (ник 4aiman), можете ли вы писать по-русски, видите ли водимые символы...
Какого-то хрена я не могу писать по-русски и я должен понять почему. Виноват ли я или это последние версии майнтеста снова поломали русский чат.

Translation for the non-Russians:

People, I BEG of you, tell me while I'm on the server (my name's 4aiman) whether you can "speak" in Russian and whether you can see russian characters...
For some lousy reason I can't and I must figure it out why. Is it my fault or I'm to blame the latest dev of Minetest for breaking Cyrillic chat.

Went to your server today, the game is impressive! I love the unique mechanics and this (dust/heat?):

I don't know how you did that effect, but is impressive!

Aha, And there's a HUD missing half a time...
Thanks, now I know it's a major problem :)

This is CO2 (like that in your average soda pop). One can grab a bucket and collect it. It should put off fire and it spreads like a water. It appears when some node overheats (like a furnace or machinery from the voltbuild2). I should look at the mod itself, so I can remember more. Maybe I even had broke smth.

But the idea behind that is that when a blast of machinery happens, CO2 will generate. Later I wanted to give it some use.

Also, having a "heat" like that is a good idea too :)
Definitely it's a thing to be added.
