[Mod] Inbox [1] [inbox]

by Bas080 » Mon Aug 26, 2013 21:40

Have a way to safely share nodes, items and tools with your fellow minetester.

Features
  • Placer owns the mailbox
  • Owner can only dig mailbox when it is empty
  • Owner cannot place items and nodes in mailbox (it's not a chest!)
  • Users can add items to the mailbox but not take items
  • Users cannot see what is in the mailbox
  • If the mailbox is full, no items can be added

Cool mod.
I like the shape of the box and I like the way it works.

It's intentional that one can't put something in own mailbox, right?

Yes it is. Just to avoid owners of the box using it as a chest, filling it so no new mail can fit.

Maybe you could make a comunity mailbox where there are about 5 slots and people can own different slots. OR there could be a shared mailbox. Finally maybe you could have a name on the sides.

jojoa1997, you have big ideas. Shared mailboxes make sense. An ability for the owner to add shared users. I see no reason for the slots idea. One can make 5 mailboxes to keep eachothers mail seperated. Aesthetically i understand your pov. I'll put it on the could have list.

Names on mailboxes... Maybe the multiple owner mailbox.

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

You could look at 0gb's chest mood for shared mailboxes.

Can you add indicator for empty and not empty mailbox? Now red checkbox of the mailbox not work (it is static) and mailbox owner need every time open his mailbox to check for new mail (item). I mean if mailbox is empty then red checkbox is down (horizontal position) but if mailbox is not empty then red checkbox is up (vertical position). See attachments.
