[Modpack] Sea [0.4.2] [sea]

by Topywo » Wed Jan 30, 2013 02:32

Version 0.4.2

- the corals can be crafted on any place into dyes (4). When the colormachine mod is enabled, the corals must be crafted in the colormachine
- the lights (seaglass), cobble, gravel and stone can either be made using all 3 ingredients or by making 'base-'blocks and combining those later with dye. The ingredients can be placed anywhere in the craft
- cobble can be cooked into stone and stone drops cobble
- stonebricks are made by combining 4 stone-blocks in a square
- lights, cobble, gravel, stone and stonebricks can make stairs and slabs like those in the 'default/stairs' mod. Just don't expect gravel stairs and slabs to stick to the ceiling
- Not only punching can put lights (including stairs and slabs) on/off, but also putting them anywhere in the crafting grid turns them into their opposite[/spoiler]

Looks good thanks for the credit though I don't think I deserve it.

Minetest's oceans and lakes can be rather dull, but this mod has the potential to make them more interesting.

Any normal tool will do. The iron sword works best, followed by the axe and shovel. Hit the shell when it's half open or complete open. When closed, it doesn't take damage.

I looks like work on this mod has stopped. It is a good mod and should be maintained.

Thanks! I didn't try if it still works properly with the latest version(s). As far as I know both damage system and (ore) generation have had some changes. I'll take a look at that, but not too soon.

To enlarge this modpack I'll need to find a way to work around the water/air bubble or the max amount of entities.

I'm a bit busy at the moment and not very good in LUA.

Like it and use it!
Makes sea, lakes and desert more interesting.
Collecting the broken sea shells on desert sand is a bit like fossil hunting. :D

It seems like this mod doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. It makes oceans and even deserts prettier to look at.

Maybe I'll need to simplify crafting a bit. Furthermore entities are difficult to control. They spawn too much or not enough, get deleted/are limited, but are necessary for a nice texture in water. I still need to find a way to work around that.


I just tried this mod out again and noticed to things to do first:
- changing the 'sand' algae colors into the new sand colors
- I think I didn't gave use to the empty bleachers. Since sometimes buckets (with water) are not available I guess I'll replace the bucket with the empty bleacher.

You could try creating nodebox models for the clams and create the effect of them being in water by doing what mesecons does with the top of its water turbine when it contacts flowing water.

How is progress with this mod? There isn't much modding activity with mods these days.

Your hint about Jeija's windtubine was very usefull :-)

As long as the block is surrounded it does look 'normal'. But as you can see (the blue water and green stripe) a bit glitchy. You can have or more blue glitching or a thicker yellow line.

I've been busy renaming and testing the old sea-mods to clams, since they're more or less one mod. I'm also busy making a mod called 'seaplants'. So the sea modpack will be containing two seperate mods called clams and seaplants.

I'll be busy the next days/weeks, making some seaplants, finding some uses for them and coding the stuff.

Apart from the glitches those plants look really nice.
Can't wait for the next update.

Have you succeeded with the underwater plants yet? Concerning their nodes, you could have their bases be their location nodes and have their stems and leaves be extensions of that (so that water can appear inside the stems and leaves.)

Making nodeboxes is taking me more time than expected. Last week I had some time to work on this mod. I'll try to release a part in 1-3 days.

I really like this mod because it makes the seas interesting. However after playing for a couple hours the lag becomes so massive that I only get 1 fps and Minetest becomes unplayable. I think it might be caused by the sea plants emitting light. Can you create an option to disable this plant light feature? It's not entirely realistic for undersea plants emitting light anyway.

I noticed one small bug. High up in the desert far away from any water I am seeing crushed shells.

Other people should test this mod as well so that bugs and glitches can be found and solved. By doing this, this mod could be used on servers one day.

Thanks for the constructive feedback.

I noticed the lag too testing with an interval of 4 and chance of 2. I'll first try with the lightsource disabled. The reason I use a lightsource for the seaplants is because it gave the best overal texture results during daylight(high/low place in the water give lighter/darker textures).

That bug is intentionaI. I thought crushed shells could be in the deserts because there might have been an ocean long time ago. If it is bothering too much I could make a water (nearby) check for it.

Disabling the lightsource didn't improve the performance, but I'll disable it anyway for the seaplants. Some other tests also failed.

Since it's the amount of 'nodes' causing the very low fps, Ill look for a way to decrease the max amount of possible seaplants in an area.

I'm thinking of using an on generate/ABM-neighbor combination or some extensive typing, preventing adding nodes in the vicinity of already added seaplants (I have the impression that the amount of code-lines doesn't influence performance).
