Hi! im rlly glad someone is making a new decor mod that is lightweight and fits into the minetest theme, so ill give you some ideas: Furnace-Slab, Chest-Slab, Tables for every stone type, Carpet, Wood-Table, and Paintings, and a Workbench.

Ill try to think of more later.
Hey, what can i say? I'm the bad guy.

Thanks! The furnace-slab is not a bad idea, I may add it if I can figure out half-blocks. These ideas are good, and if you get good ideas I'd love to hear!

Half blocks can be achieved with meshes or with this:
https://rubenwardy.com/minetest_modding ... ml#nodebox

A stair is pretty much a slab plus half a slab, to only get the slab you change this:

Code: Select all

      fixed = {
            {-0.5, -0.5, -0.5, 0.5, 0, 0.5},
            {-0.5, 0, 0, 0.5, 0.5, 0.5},
        },
into this:

Code: Select all

      fixed = {
            {-0.5, -0.5, -0.5, 0.5, 0, 0.5},
        },
Much more there in that handy guide (a NodeBox editor is linked there in the very section I pointed out).

Have fun modding :)

Thanks entuland! I did check out that handbook, but that'll help me out. Do I have to do anything special to the textures for a half node?

You're welcome :)
I didn't fiddle a lot with non-mesh types of blocks. My guess is that any nodeblock part will use textures from the various sides automatically, side textures should get properly "stamped" on each nodeblock side regardless of the nodeblock exact boundaries.

Thanks! I hope it becomes as big as xdecor or at least a lot of content!

If its animated then i think a GIF alongside your image would be best :)

Can you record gifs from the minutest game? If not, I could upload the texture.

I suppose you're using frames put vertically on a single texture, they can be easily converted to GIFs.

You could as well capture a small clip and have it converted to a GIF to show the effect in the game, but the GIF made out of the texture will be fine.

If you have updated your links with it I could do that myself if you want.

I'm using piskelapp.com, so I could download a gif directly from there, but thanks for the offer.

Ah nice :)

For anyone else who may like to know, one such thing is easily done with imagemagick, this is what could be done with the texture at hand, taken from the repo linked in the OP:

Code: Select all

magick home_blocks_pathstone.png -crop 16x16 +repage home_blocks_pathstone.gif

This is a nice little set of blocks.

I think it would be cool if the crate's future inventory was serialized and saved as item metadata when you pick it up, then put back when you place it, so it could actually be used for transporting stuff
A spoon is basically a tiny bowl with a stick on it
