Please add this in an issue on github. In that case there is a bigger chance that this gets upstream.

That would be nice.

A quick and dirty solution would be to override the:
function minetest.item_eat(hp_change, replace_with_item)
(Can be found in item.lua, I think that must be possible to override it)

Please feel free to submit a patch.

I think you can make "smaller blocks" by creating a larger player character. (e.g. 4 by 2 blocks) I am not sure what problems will arise but I think of these. Compatibility issues between minetest and your fork. The map-generator needs to be scaled as well. I don't know how collision is implemented....

As far as I remember, in minecraft there are 2 perlinnoises (wetness and temperature). From this, the biomes are chosen. If we have this, we can have multiple biomes in a natural way. (no deserd near a polar region for example)

Because it is much easier to forbid translucent textures while rendering. In that case, you dont have to order surfaces by distance but only have to enable the depth buffer.

The problem MAY be more difficult than you imagine. Although I don't see a problem in your case, since it is an overlapping texture. This may be the cause: In openGL, when you have 2 overlapping surfaces, it will determine which one should be on top using a technique called the depth buffer. However...

It would be great if there were biome support for lua. Agreed, this would be great. However this code will not touch lua. It will only give a number for each zone (biome). What that number exactly means is left to be decided. So, the addition would be possible if you expand from the method shown ab...

Biome Generation

For one of my own projects I created a map-generator for biomes. Now that project stopped, I thought maybe minetest can use it for biome generation. For this, I am willing to convert it to c++. Here are some properties: 1. For each integer (x, y) coordinate it will give a number. (Normal distributio...

I think the best way to fix this is to correct the F5 to be the same as player:get_look_yaw(). In this way, potential existing mods will be backward compatible.
EDIT: Of course in radians, but the same 0 axis (I hope it is clear)

There is a dirty solution. Hack it together in c++. (mostly by commenting lines)

Secondly, I have heard that celeron is busy with recoding the map-generation[citation needed], so it may be that he will add this possibility.

I think it could better be in depends.txt. Maybe:

Single player is emulated by multiplayer. Therefore it should be similar to running both a client and a server.

It may be that the VideoDriver does not free the textures. A few solutions could be:
- Only use getTexture() to load the texture. This will avoid multiple instances of the same texture.
- Make sure that all classes that load textures drop() and grab() them correctly

Thanks for adding the reference.
Unfortunately, this patch has a more or less a hardcoded model in it. Therefore it is not directly usable.
Secondly, there have been reports on performance issues. (whether they are true, I don't know)

I have seen a mod, (for a similar and famous game) of home and teleport blocks.

You could set your home by clicking on the (relatively cheap) home block.
If you click on the (expensive) teleport block, you are teleported to your home.

All in all, I think the system was balanced. (1 directional)

I think it is somewhere an error in the perlinnoise.

Edit: This happens because the 3D perlin-noise implementation uses lineair interpolation. A blur / cosine interpolation will probably fix this, but it will make the algorythm slower.
