Re: [Mod]Frame - lag-free non-entity item frames![frame]

From what I know about Minetest, Lua entity ticking just calls the on_step of every live lua entity. Wouldn't it be really cheap then (in terms of Lua execution time only) to have ten thousand entities with no on_step callbacks, since it just adds (a loop iteration + a few table accesses) times ten...

Re: [Mod]Frame - lag-free non-entity item frames![frame]

Thanks for the mod. Reducing the amount of entities will certainly help. Admittedly, the more 3dish appearance of the older itemframe mod also looks very good. Maybe they can be combined? No, that view can currently only be obtained by using an entity to draw the "wieldmesh" appearance, a...

Re: Finally got Chrome to work inside Minetest ...

Why not adding some generic layer that can act as e.g. an X11 display or supports the VNC protocol? Then you could interface with almost anything, not just a single program.

Wayland comes to mind. Have minetest be a wayland compositor.

Amazing. Makes sense too. When will mobs be added? Even a simple mob like a pig or something? Any hint whatsoever on when they are planned? There already is a simple sheep and a stone monster.

What about enabling alternative translation tables? mcresconvert could use a default table but pull in other ones depending on a flag correlating to the table's name. Ideally, we convert the texture pack to as many mods and subgames without any flags, so, if we want to support mineclone, we should ...

I also don't know if sofar's texture pack converter even supports MineClone 2 yet or if it is part of its goals. It depends. If mineclone uses a reasonable set of filenames for textures that doesn't conflict with minetest_game, then we can just add the translations from MC to mineclone and it shoul...
