[Mod] Meshport (Minetest Mesh Exporter) [meshport]

by random_geek » Tue Aug 06, 2019 20:33

Image

Meshport is a mod which allows easy exporting of scenes from Minetest to .obj files, complete with materials and textures. These models can be imported directly into Blender or another 3D program for rendering and animation.

This mod is still in the "alpha" phase. At the moment, only the following node drawtypes are able to be exported:

  • Cubic drawtypes, including normal, glasslike, allfaces, and their variants.
  • nodebox
  • mesh (only .obj meshes are exported)

More details about usage, supported features, etc. can be found at the GitHub repository.

Changelog

Nice, I usually just build everything in Blender when I want to recreate something from Minetest, this could save me a considerable amount of time.
I record Minetest videos, Mod reviews, Modding tutorials, and Lets plays.

Don't fences use the fencelike drawtype? Your drawtype list doesn't have fencelike in it

Fences use connected nodeboxes. The fencelike drawtype is much more primitive and really shouldn't be used anymore.

That this even reads nodeboxes is worthy.

How optimized are the meshes that are created? I see you mention about using the highest priority face, do you also optimize vectors and and normals?

The meshes are not optimized much, if you mean reduction of geometry. Cubic nodes share corner vertices and unnecessary interior faces are ignored; however, for the sake of simplicity, adjacent co-planar faces are not combined in any way. Beyond cubic nodes, everything is basically "as-is".

Hope this answers your question.
