[mod] WorldEdit HUD Helper [0.2] [worldedit_hud_helper]

by Starbeamrainbowlabs » Post

I'm back with another small quality-of-life improvement mod!

This time, I noticed that I only used 2 pieces of information from the debug info output - the direction I'm looking in (+/- X/Z), and the name of the node I'm looking at. To this end - in an attempt to reduce visual noise (and make taking screenshots easier) - I've written another mod.

It's based on advanced_gui, and despite the name, it doesn't actually depend on worldedit.



It displays the name of the node you're looking at, and the direction you're facing in the HUD. It also adds the //hud chat command to toggle it on and off.

Here's a screenshot:

Here are some more screenshots:

What a nice mod ! However, probably display Node Description instead of name, or even better, both...

Ah, good thinking - and thanks! I originally made this because I'm always needing the node name for worldedit commands, like //replace. I could always add a configuration option to display the node description or something. What do you think?

Probably add config, and make default setting : Show both description and nodename. Chatcommands to toggle would be nice too...

Good idea! Is there a reference sheet on config options? I'm unsure on how to do that, being new to modding minetest and all (not new to programming though :P).

There is a chat command to toggle it already - //hud :-)

I should probably document it in this forum post as well as the readme :P

I know it's been over a month, but I see no one replied to you yet. In general, the dev wiki is useful for figuring out the usage/syntax of minetest functions. In this particular case, though, the page for minetest.settings is pretty lacking. For a working example of both reading and writing settings, you can look at the first few lines of my Flying Saucer mod (though note that I only use number and bool settings; just remove the 'tonumber' calls if you want your setting to be a string instead).

Hey, thanks! I'll take a look when I've got some time. I would have replied sooner, but email notifications don't appear to be functioning for me :-/
