I'm new here, but I've got some decent programming experience and have starting playing around with minetest to build things creatively for visualisation purposes. To that end, I've written my first mod: a floating anchor. Based on the Angel Block from the ExtraUtilities mod for Minecraft, the floating anchor, when used (right click like you're placing a block), places a block directly at your feet in mid-air:
When broken, it returns to your inventory.
I had quite a bit of trouble hiding the actual node form of the anchor from the creative inventory - for future reference you need to set "not_in_creative_inventory = 1" as a group of the node to hide it.
Support for the doc modpack is available! The anchor item should be described in the help pages.
It's strongly recommended that you clone the repository with `git` to the `worldmods` folder (create it if it doesn't exist) in your world's directory - then you can update with a simple `git pull`.

Latest Update: The item form of the floating anchor that appears in your inventory should now draw like a node :D
