[Mod] Non-laggy cars [cars][git]

by cheapie » Post

This mod adds cars in what might be the simplest way possible - it turns the player into a car (and back again, if desired) - this makes it not lag like entity-based solutions do, but you can't see a car you're "in" from first-person view, and the car appears to be driving itself since nobody seems to be in it :P

Screenshot: Image

Use: Punch anything with the "car" craftitem to turn into a car or back. When you're a car, you cannot jump and you're heavier, but you can move faster if anticheat is off. The collision box is intentionally unchanged to preserve compatibility with older roads that aren't wide enough.

Crafting:
{{"default:glass","default:steel_ingot",""},
{"homedecor:motor","default:steel_ingot","default:steel_ingot"},
{"homedecor:plastic_sheeting","","homedecor:plastic_sheeting"}}

Dependencies: *NONE* to use the cars, but default and homedecor are needed to craft them.

License: Mesh and texture are based on work by Melkor, and are under CC BY-NC-SA. Code is WTFPL.

A few things

* Change the walking sound. (If possible, if not this needs a bug report for minetest)
* Display the change in the HUD, e.g. via center message
* Maybe enable fast automatically

The docs say this should be possible. I tried it, and it didn't work.

I might have to try that at some point.

I'm not sure if that's possible (and it would make it a pain to drive slowly), but I could possibly increase the speed that's used when anticheat is off.

Perhaps you could use entity attachment to make the car model, or perhaps a hud overlay.

Also, is there a way to disable sideways movement?

Nice idea :-) Now change the model (or get someone to do it) so that a(!) player's sitting in the car. The whole thing might even be animated the same way the player model is. Could something like that (combining two models) be done in blender?

I have no idea how to use Blender, but any PRs with better models (ideally under a less restrictive license than the current one) will likely be accepted.

Would be nice if another player could ride you, and then the aforementioned model with a player in it is used :)

Cue lag and cheapie shouting at me that it's against the very foundation of the existence of this mod (non-lagginess)

Then it better be able to traverse a 1-hole gap without falling down...

Sadly, neither do I. Hopefully someone who knows how to use blender can jump in and help.

Combining two models is entirely possible. Even mapping so player skin would even be correct if custom skins were used. I've considered making a horse that could be "worn" rather then attached to. Yet appearing like a player riding a horse. Pretty much the same way this mod addresses it.

I can't commit to building you a model right now as my desktop needs some new parts and I'm not sure how my laptop will handle Blender. Also trying to get my work/personal life sorted out. But I do plan on getting more involved again soon.

Then use a text editor that handles line endings properly.

Alternatively, newer versions of MT have it in the settings menu.

Ah, thanks twoelk. That link works mostly fine (git clone worked perfectly, but the page itself wouldn't load in my Firefox for some reason; had to use SeaMonkey to view it).
