First, please add screenshots - 90% of people will not download some content (mod/texturepack/whatever) without a screenshot, sometimes assuming the download would be a virus.

Secondly, the recipe in Minecraft is more like this:
http://minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Hoe

Also, avoid using that hosting site - try http://mediafire.com or http://omploader.org instead.

First of all thanks for your suggestions

I haven't played mc for a while I'll fix the hoe reciep.

And upload to another source (just took the first file sharing site google found).
And add screenshots.

I've already fixed hoes in my first post ;-)

Of course you may use the hoe, but you can use my mod too ;-)

I'm going to add some other crops soon. I intended it to be a base for either improove baking mod or write a new one.

I've been first ;-), already added water dependent grow in 0.0.4 ;-)

What about joining forces rather than start a feature race?

Great mod! ^_^ only issue I do have is if someone uses the /clearobjects command it also clears all crops :(

EDIT: Also it would be nice to have the crops drawn plantlike (crossed) if thats possible?

EDIT 2: I've just found a bug, when you hit crops with your fist it crashes the server:

Code: Select all

20:16:10: ERROR[ServerThread]: ERROR: An unhandled exception occurred: LuaError: error running function 'on_punch': ...home/minetest/bin/../data/mods/farming/init.lua:174: attempt to index local 'tool' (a nil value)

I'm sorry but I think by now I can't fix either of the problems you mentioned.
I think both depend on the same thing.

1) All crops growing are luaentitys. I think cleanobjects removes all entitys so crops are gone

2) entities currently do only have two visual modes: cube(without any transparency) or sprite(the one used by now)

Probably it would be a nice feature request to add drawing visual "plant"

hmmmm.... that makes sense, maybe there is another way to do crops other than using entities?

Also what about my 2nd edit with regards to the bug that crashes the server on punching crops with fists?

Already fixed in 0.0.6

The problem is i use "on_step" to grow the crops and two internal variables. One to decide if it's time to grow and one to decide time to dry.

Nodes neither do have an on_step hook nor is it possible to add own variables.

To solve this problem I would have to use the global on_step and store all data in global data structures.
Thats possible... but in my opinon ugly and most likely to be buggy.

ah ok fair enough ^_^, thanks for the fix updated to 0.0.6 now.

Also only a minor thing but the mod loaded string that gets printed to the console has a typo.

It's just a matter of personal preference.

As I expected the changes in minetest are really small to support plantlike entities:

Image

For the brave ones you need this patches:

texture transparency patch for entities
http://www.mediafire.com/?8xxzdcvxs56ze3z

plant visual mode patch
http://ompldr.org/vYndhMw

And you have to change visual for the entities from "sprite" to "plant" in init.lua


@Hackeridze
You neither do use fixed intervals for growing nor do you have a hoe ;-). And of course no potatoes ;)

@dannydark found a partial solution for your delete objects problem
Harvestable crops don't need an on_step action anymore therefore those can be nodes.

The caveeat is to force users to use the hoe for harvesting I had to add straw ... at least you can burn it ;-)

@sapier nice one mate just updated on my server works great, I don't tend to use the /clearobjects too often anyway but at least if I do now it won't remove peoples harvest-able crops ^_^ also I like the straw idea.

Happy Christmas.
