[Mod] Torches [3.0.1] [torches]

by BlockMen » Sat May 25, 2013 21:31

Hi everyone,

this mod adds 3D torches to Minetest in two different styles; by default in Minetest style (flames are animated textures).
The second style is Minecraft like, so flames are "animated" by using particles

Minetest styled:
Those torches use the same textures as the 2D torch, so its fully compatible with Texture Packs. By default ceiling torches
are removed and cannot be placed aswell. You can change this behavior by adding "torches_enable_ceiling = true" to your minetest.conf
Furthermore this style is more server traffic friendly, so it is enabled by default

Minecraft styled:
Those torches have a non-animated texture and needs to be supported by Texture Packs (currently most don't support this mod).
"Animation" is done like in Minecraft with particles, which cause (in the current implementation in the Minetest engine)
some amount of traffic and can cause lags at slow connections. The rate and distance when particles are send is configurable
in the first lines of "mc_style.lua". Enable this style by adding "torches_style = minecraft" to your minetest.conf. Note that
the ceiling setting is ignored with this style.

Notice:
Both styles convert existing torches to the new style. Keep in mind that by default ceiling torches get removed !

Depends:
default

Download:
Version 3.0.1: Download (Minetest 0.4.12 and later)

+ older Releases (WTFPL)

Please give Feedback and ideas for improvement

The link above leads to a previous attempt to create 3D torches for Minetest. Maybe it's lantern could prove to be useful?

There are one or two more mods that have 3D torches, but none has particles flames, which have IMO alot benefits and also look IMO better.

And this mod will just have torches, nothing else ;)

Are the torches dropping "themself" or do they stay and drop items? What version do you use (Minetest and mod)?

I really like the torches mod. :)

I do have one problem though. I can't place the torches on ceilings. They fall off right away. Placing torches on ceilings, upside down, is the most common way I use torches so it's a little bit of a pain for me. That is the only downside I have seen to the mod so far.

Great work. :)

Sometimes I see a torch raining dropped items directly under it, resulting in many items. Also if a player places a torch on a door, it actually destroys part of the door. In addition, this mod takes no notice of protection systems, leaving a mess of torches in my spawn. Is there a solution to these problems besides removing the mod? Thanks

Currently i have no idea what is causing this issues, so i guess removing is currently the best solution...

Great,
More minecraftest,
I lost interest in Minetest for a couple of years and... I am still not really paying much attention. I rarely browse these forums anymore but it's nice to see old faces.

obligatory fancy signature goes here

Can you just edit textire to model for default torch? It'll be better!

I don't like like the default texture, so my answer is: no.

Is there a way to make this work without the add_particle? I'm not sure, but I think having lots of particles in a really huge cavern would make the game lag a bit.

Well, you can try out if limiting helps. I made a dev-branch on github where flames are only spawned when a player is near torch (13 block by default).

In fact, wouldn't that burn down your house?

Hmm...guess why I put the word "real" in quotation marks.

But be a man and try out if they harm your computer ;)
