[Mod] Mob Spawn Eggs [1.1] [spawneggs]

by thefamilygrog66 » Post

Mob Spawn Eggs (spawneggs) mod for Minetest


by thefamilygrog66

Description:
This mod randomly spawns "spawning eggs", which when combined with various materials, will become mob spawning eggs (compatible only with PilzAdam's Simple Mobs mod). When the player places one of these, the corresponding mob will appear.

If the player prefers to create a health item instead of a mob, they can simply cook the spawning egg, which will produce a FRIED EGG that can be eaten to regain hearts.


Recipes:

Code: Select all

Dirt Monster
+---------------+---------------+
| spawning egg  |     dirt      |
+---------------+---------------+

Dungeon Master
+---------------+---------------+
| spawning egg  |     mese      |

+---------------+---------------+
| spawning egg  |   obsidian    |
+---------------+---------------+

Rat

| spawning egg  |     rat       |

Sand Monster

Nice mod, but I commented out the part that makes an egg appear randomly because the original technically already does that. +1

Yeah. Because you could place one in someones house and if it only costs one dirt then you might not want to open your door..

I like this mod.
Nice how the textures of spawn eggs fit to the corresponding mobs.

Noob 4 life!

Maybe

"" "default:dirt" ""
"default:dirt" "default:mese" "default:dirt"
"default:diamond""default:dirt""default:diamond"

Edit: Wait are you are you talking about currently? If so it's one dirt.

Thanks - could you elaborate a bit on why you commented out the random egg spawning? I'm not quite sure what you mean about the "original technically" doing that.

Edit 1 :how to craft egg?
Thank you. Dungeon Masters require mese blocks, but server owners can easily change the recipes in the first few lines of the init.lua file. The spawning egg doesn't have a recipe - it just randomly spawns (technically, it randomly replaces short grass).

Glad you dig it - I figured it made the most sense to match the textures.

Because it already spawns monsters and I don't think I want it to spawn eggs aswell. Anyway that's just personal preference and how I want it for my game. Still good mod.

Ah cool, I understand what you're saying now. In that case, the owner/admin would have to /give playername spawneggs:egg since they won't spawn naturally, unless you're playing in creative mode. I really like that Minetest modding makes it easy to tweak things to suit personal preferences - I know I've done that with almost every mod I have running! :)

Your question is very general.

Does there occur an error while extracting, does the extracting work well, but you get an error creating a new world or you can play a game but can't find/use spawneggs?

General info:
- Maybe this helps you: viewtopic.php?id=6450
- Spawneggs depends on the simple mobs mod from PilzAdam. You need to install that mod too viewtopic.php?id=3063
- Use a newer or latest minetest build
- Exit minetest, look for a file called debug.txt and delete it, start minetest and create a world (with spawneggs enabled), wait for the error, exit minetest, open the (new) debug.txt file, copy the ERRORS lines and paste them here.

Sure, here you go:

/giveme spawneggs:egg 99
/giveme spawneggs:dirt_monster 99
/giveme spawneggs:dungeon_master 99
/giveme spawneggs:oerkki 99
/giveme spawneggs:rat 99
/giveme spawneggs:sand_monster 99
/giveme spawneggs:sheep 99
/giveme spawneggs:stone_monster 99
/giveme spawneggs:tree_monster 99


Of course, you can change the 99 to whatever number of that item you'd like.

Version 1.1 is now available for download:

- made spawning eggs much easier to break now

- added a "de-spawning" function to prevent too many eggs from overtaking the landscape

- now includes FRIED EGGS - simply cook a spawning egg and you can eat the resulting fried egg to regain hearts

Nice one! It saves doing /spawnentity blah blah blah. Also, this is a great idea! Makes me feel RIGHT at home. :)
