No, it's Minetest 0.4.16 with vanilla MTG. I can activate other mods, but crops gets deactivated if I save the world configuration. If I look in world.mt

Code: Select all
load_mod_crops = nil


If I set it manually to true it stays true, but doesn't work and it gets reset to nil if I open the world configuration.

I have downloaded right now the MTG stable-0.4, I have downloaded the crops mod again, created a new world, I even tried it with Minetest 0.5 and MTG 0.5.

Still can't activate it

I just tried again on another system (android 0.4.16 mobile, linux 0.4.16) and the mod still just works for me.

As for hydration, the idea is that you figure this out by yourself by looking at how the plant behaves if you over/under water it. If you see the water bubbles, it's too much, if the plant is showing the drying out particles, it needs water. The hygrometer shows the hydration level, so pay attention to it as you water various plants.

I'm not inclined to. Strawberries are cute, but gameplay wise they don't add much to the game. They're simply wild bushes that continue to generate berries, nothing more. And aside jellies/jam, there would not be anything interesting to craft from them either.

I tend to strongly prefer adding mechanics and plants that require a non-trivial amount of work, and that yield a finite amount of resources. Corn needs to be replanted and creates trash, the beans require beanpoles, you need to water the tomatoes, etc.. All these mechanics offer a challenge, and strawberries would become too easy quickly.

I see what you mean about the strawberries, not enough of a challenge, too easy to get food. But still, this is one of the best farming mods out there, I'm going to try it out on an all-water world, to see how it goes. What if you added a crop that grows down? Might be something new.

My intent is to actually combine 'luscious' with this mod somehow. Luscious provides a way to get humidity values, and those could be used by this mod to create a variation in watering needs of plants. E.g. in really wet areas, some plants won't grow because it's too wet, and in dry areas, you need to water much more to sustain plants.

pumpkins, melons and potatoes are obtainable. The rest currently isn't.

What about adding butternut squash? You can make soup from it, and it doesn't taste terrible. Maybe pizza, with cheese, tomatoes, and flour? Baked potatoes? Just some more ideas.

I needed peppers for a mod I am working on, so I modded the tomatoes file to make green peppers (they are both nightshades afterall). Works the same as tomatoes, but the seeds are peppercorns (yes, I know thats not realistic but I thought it was a nice littke twist).. Peppercorns can be crafted with glass vessel to make ground pepper.

If anyone is interested I will upload it.

Do you plan to make the mod extendable, ie creating an API similar to default farming's?

I wouldn't object to that, but the design has been mostly handcrafted thus far, and so this would be relatively a lot of work. In hindsight, I've made things somewhat over complex. If I ever redo this mod, it will be much more object oriented, but mostly to make the mechanical parts of how crops grow easier, and not really to make it easier to add more plants. The reason for that is that I've still found that adding more plants to the mix that are largely a clone really doesn't add much value to the game.

l think the clone problem pertains for mobs too.
Creating unique entities for each mob could make them more interesting.
Currently all default sand nodes (sand, desert_sand and silver_sand) have the same texture, only different colours, same for wood. And the tools (e.g. picks) have the same shape. How do you think about it?

Same problem, so I hate it.

I'd rather see `luscious` color all sand nodes so they're all just the same sand node instead. Same for desert stone.

It's also a bit of a signal that people who write mods that add "colored XXX" type of things are really not thinking much more further than "finally I can make a mod" and haven't given it much thought whether it makes the game any better or not, and so it's almost guaranteed to be low quality.

Thank You for your wonderful mod, that is installed in my Blue World. Unfortunately I had many server crashes recently, always with a similar warning like
ServerError: AsyncErr: ServerThread::run Lua: Runtime error from mod 'crops' in callback node_on_dig(): /home/minetest/.minetest/mods/crops/polebean.lua:103: attempt to call field 'die' (a nil value)

I updated from 04.16 to 04.17, a long time without crash, but now it's happening again.

Has anybody an idea what could be the reason?

I checked the code. crops.die() is defined before the polebean code is loaded, so this bug should not be possible. Do you have a different farming mod or something installed?

Thank You for checking. Yes, I also have the standard "farming" installed (no extra mod). It worked for a long time without crash. Strange ... What can I do?

Maybe zip up the crops mod you have and attach it to this thread, then I can check what version you have and whether it's broken.

Obviously you may want to update it to the latest version from git, as well.

I reinstalled the mod from the github repository, but it was up to date anyway. Let's see, if the crashes still happen ...
