This mod adds quartz to the game. Quartz can be found anywhere below sea level and is quite common. Things like quartz blocks, pillars, chiseled quartz blocks, slabs and such are also added. The quartz ore (Image) gives you one crystal.

I like the idea of quartz. Obviously, we'd want to be able to do something with it but there's a lot of mods that make more of the basic tools. Personally, I'd prefer to see different sorts of tools. A clock is a good idea. Radio is another one. Some different types of crafting might be cool as well, such as modifying standard building nodes to be translucent (cobblestone or brick with transparent morter?), engraved glass (either panes or drinking) and so on.

Just throwing some ideas out... maybe you'll find some of them useful. Good luck.

Hi, I made a new texture for the mineral:
Image

Also, I recommand removing the stone from the ore texture, and defining it like that in init.lua near line 17:
Code: Select all
      tiles = {"default_stone.png^quartz_ore.png"},

The texture I used for the screenshot: Image
I made a few (a lot of?) mods for minetest: here is a list.
See also the MT-Faithful texture pack (work in progress).

I am making a clock mod that will use quartz from your mod in the crafting recipe.

Thanks! I'll include it as an extension for this mod in the topic.

There are stairs. And the depends is a text file, so it doesn't matter.

It's just that depends.txt is the standard name for it, even though I agree this extension is stupid.

It has a function though. It's because Windows makes it a bit harder to edit files with no extension. Since *.txt files are always associated under Win, it makes modder's life (a bit) easier. This is the same reason why I think calling the "Read Me" document "README.txt", instead of "README" or "README.md" makes it easier for users (note that README in all caps is standard on Linux, since it appears near the top of file listing when using case-sensitive listing).

depends didn't work

What do you mean depends didn't work? This mod doesn't depend on anything except default.

the game doesn't work if I name "depends.txt" "depends"
it depends on stairs, too

Sorry, I'll add that.

The mod does not recognize default: stairs, even though I have it installed.

I don't think that's it. depends.txt says "default, stairs" one one line; I don't think that's correct. Minetest is interpreting that as being one mod called "default, stairs", which of course doesn't exist. Instead it should be two lines: one that says "default", one that says "stairs".

Okay, I just updated it to that.

You could make this compatible with moreblock's stairsplus feature.

How do you make it compatible without depending on moreblocks?

In Minecraft, you can make it into things like comparators, and daylight detectors.

There already is a daylight detector in mesecons, and I have no idea how to create anything like that in mesecons.
