[Mod] Engraving Table - Change Item Descriptions [engrave]

by orwell » Sun Apr 30, 2017 12:32

Important: This mod relies on a feature found only in the latest development version of minetest and does not work with 0.4.15 stable.
This mod adds an Engraving Table which allows you to change the description of an item.
To use, right-click the table with the item you want to name.
This is especially useful for keys.
Crafting recipe:
WWW
WDW
WWW
W = Wood (any)
D = Diamond

how does it works? only changes the name of one item? are still generic items there? If i stack my renamed item with a normal item, what happens?

Only changes the description
You can't stack items with different descriptions anymore.
To clear a custom name, simply go to the table and make the textbox empty.

Please host this mod on some git hosting site, so we can update it.

You can't change the symbol

Simple - works as expected.
However, it's easier to clone from git into the destination directory instead download, unzip and deleting the archive.

Also, you should add a limit:

What a lil' sad "Yes". Not even an exclamation point!

The forums are not phone friendly.

And now for the million dollar question - did you have to look it up?

Interesting.. didn't expect that minetest supports such long tooltips without bugs :)
But to set such long item names, one should need a privilege
BTW how did you insert the newlines? Copy Paste?

I know, but it isn't as easily typable as \n, is it?
