Re: 3 Memory use optimisations for Lua mapgens

Just realised this probably applies to point 2 also: -- Localise noise buffers local nbuf_terrain = {} local nbuf_biome = {} ... ... -- On generated function minetest.register_on_generated(function(minp, maxp, seed) ... ... local nvals_terrain = nobj_terrain:get3dMap_flat(minpos3d, nbuf_terrain) loc...

Note i have been corrected on point 3, the initialisation of dbuf must define it as a table: local dbuf = {} Otherwise memory usage is not reduced. -- Localise data buffer local dbuf = {} -- On generated function minetest.register_on_generated(function(minp, maxp, seed) ... ... local vm, emin, emax ...

Re: Post your mapgen questions here (modding or engine)

With my experiments so far, I only managed to make mushrooms appear at Y chunk borders. Yes this is all that is possible currently, because decorations can only be placed on the highest surface in a mpchunk, so only where caves intersect a mapchunk border. I intend to add underground decorations be...

Re: Removal of Nyan Cats: how to preserve them in worlds

I'm not sure about aliases either, i was hoping they do change the node name in the world database so that old node names don't hang around (which feels messy). Maybe if a mapblock is altered and resaved into the database then the node names change?

Re: Bug with glass

Param2 applied to glass causes a certain level of liquid to appear inside, as if it were a tank of liquid, it's intentional. It's also intentional that WorldEdit does not alter param2 when replacing nodes, so you need to make a request to the authors of WorldEdit for new functionality. This is not a...

Re: Removal of Nyan Cats: how to preserve them in worlds

I call bullshit on that one. If the users end up with <unknown node> by default , this is a sign of shoddy design. I also disagree with your reasoning in the issue, it doesn't address my other concerns. You could add an alias to the old nyan cat nodes UNLESS the nyancat mod is found. Meaning: No ny...

Re: pine_sapling vs junglesapling

See https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game/blob/master/mods/default/nodes.lua#L4

Underscores are the standard, but older nodes are not being renamed because that would need too many aliases and cause too much mod breakage, also, people are used to the old names.

No. The settings and new mod have also been carefully designed for an optimum transition, see the PR thread.

That PR will not replicate simple sneak ladder though (a single column of alternating nodes) so mod replacements are still worth working on.

Re: Mod replacements needed for sneak bug features

A good mod semi-replacement for the sneak ladder https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=17069

The other behaviour most wanted is an on-demand 2-node jump, this could be done using per-player physics override, perhaps in a similar way to a sprint mod.

You may have seen that we have changed sneak behaviour, many bugs were fixed by doing this, but fixing these bugs caused popular side-effects such as the sneak elevator and the 2 node high sneak jump to disappear, it was impossible to keep those and fix the very undesirable bugs.

Looks like simple decorations cannot be randomly rotated. You can create a 1-node schematic decoration and use the random rotation flag. Define the schematic as a lua table (you won't need the 'place centre' flags: minetest.register_decoration({ deco_type = "schematic", place_on = {"d...

Re: Post your mapgen questions here (modding or engine)

To balance biome areas you want to very roughly equalise the areas of the voronoi cells, however the more extreme values are less common so cell area needs to rise towards the edges and corners of the diagram. This is our current system (the 'underground' biome is at (50, 50)): https://forum.minetes...
