I am not always able to make videos :-)

I do have one recently, but I forgot to switch on mic audio so... hmm.

For the server being buggy/laggy.... you're going to have to give specific examples, otherwise I can't find anything to fix :-(

I repeat the rules from page 1

Rules wrote:
    * get your own stuff. no begging. Ask once if you want. But no pestering people for stuff. You can always offer to trade.
    * no griefing. You didn't build it, you don't touch it.
    * do NOT obstruct travelnets and elevators, EVEN IF unprotected. This is also griefing and admin WILL take immediate corrective measures. If you did not place the transport, do NOT build obstructions around it, protection or not. First offense you will be kicked. Second offense you will be banned.
    * No asking for age / sex / town location ; no dating.


These rules are few, these rules are simple, these rules are to ensure the comfort and safety of all players.

These rules are Law.

Taikedz, couldn`t you add more mods in your server, for example Home Decor (for build of house), Vehicles, Bows?

Nope. NSSS is just the bare necessities.

Unfortunately I was not able to fix this so I had to resotre from a backup - that backup was taken November 9th (breakage happened around November 12th) so it's a little old but not too bad. Your personal inventory should not have been affected, but items stored away in chests have unfortunately been lost.

If there was anything particularly dear to you that you lost (new travelnet location, written book, etc), let me know, I can try to track it down in the logs and restore a similar, on a best effort basis.

Apologies for this! I'm working on a better backup system so i can do them more frequently

For 3.0 ?

Only when 3.0 is released; then I will have to make sure, if I update the mobs, that I will not have lots of "Unknown" items

I`ve invented way of to win all annoying masticones!Need to kill their if around their set blocks, then they don`t have a place to spawn them and smoke of spawning of masticones evaporates and masticones can`t spawn

Thanks!

I have come to wonder if with the move to NSSM 3.0 the mobs haven't gotten a litle *too* hard... ah well :-P

New change - killing mobs has a 1/10 chance of making them drop an egg of themselves

Placing an egg automatically makes the mob a friendly - there is no more need for the "mob tamer"

Protections have become more costly - you will need to make them using energy globes... *niark niark*

re : Crowned-Masticone Helmet

by CuriousNoob » Wed Dec 21, 2016 14:45

Hi again taikedz/DuCake :)

As promised, a first attempt at modifying the appearance of what seems to be the top-strength helmet.

I used the familiar standard Diamond-Helmet shape as the basic shape-mask.

Image

Comments and Preferences..? I'll kick it off :

I think the fully-enclosed original is visually heavy and would probably be off-putting to some newbies as you try to help them.

Also, I know I'm not the only person on the planet who's less-than-impressed with showy-display and conspicuous bling, and definitely not the whole indulgent ''royalty'' nonsense ... so, predictably, my own preference would be number-3 or possibly number-2.

I think it's enough of a nod to the crafting components which use the King-Duck crown, and enough to signal it's not just a Masticone-Helmet.

Altogether scaled-back and toned-down, much more tasteful ... minimalist and classier in my eyes.

What do others think..?

Fantastic, nice one :-)

I am more interested in #1 - the thing is, I think it should remain evident that there's a crown, since that's what people would expect and might enjoy themselves.

I could even envisage making #3 the normal one, and then obtaining #1 by combining masticone skull crowned with another crown and mese crystals -- in case people wanted to be opulent. No stat improvements, or maybe even stat decrement. Just to show who likes function and who likes "bling" :-P

I am also wondering what it looks like from the side, see if some sort of masticone fang motif could be integrated into the cheek guards... if that's much effort then no worries I'll use the #1 as it already is...

It also can be very thematic to have a "regal" helmet for those servers that really want the warriors/corpse of your enemies feel....

on that note, I was thinking about the thematics and function of those sandworm helmets....

Ooh, erm, hmmmm, interesting idea. Presently the sides are just the yellow crown band/speckles at the top of the slightly-mottled masticone-brown design, but shaped as per the diamond-helmet sides. Fangs could be tricky, given how much like a comb they are, but having only 8 pixels to play with.

I'll do some thinking and experimenting for you. Watch this space! :D

.... it's also envisageable to bring it up to a 16x16 resolution..... MT automatically sccales the graphics as needed. Hek, you could even do 64x64 if it would satiate your creativity.... but it would quickly snowball :-P

In all seriousness - it's an idea that came to me but I admit I hadn't even checked what resolution was available.

I'm rubbish at pixel art, so I generally try to find CC-BY images at high res, adapt them, then downscale and let the image editor do the antialiasing.... :-P

Eeek, noooo, please let's not go down the higher-res route --- one of the things I value about your NSSS is its low bandwidth compared with other worlds --- other lovely-looking richly-decorated hi-res worlds which I discovered gobbled through the gigabytes. Monthly data-caps make these worlds off-limits for me.

Anyway, helmets...

Normal tiny-size texture-file attached below, but sorry no screen-grab yet ... I'd just finished a first attempt at fang-cheeks, fortunately saved, but then the power went off and I've been unable to launch the offline local world, neither from command-line nor from GUI. I don't know enough to even speculate whether it's a file corruption during the crash.

Crashes with :

Your phone or window isn't wide enough to display the code box. If it's a phone, try rotating it to landscape mode.

So, I'm muttering and grumbling at the moment, but will continue thrashing about with various stuff to see if I can get any local Minetest server to launch...

Created a totally fresh new world and that launched okay. Screen shots of the cheeks. Is this the sort of thing you were thinking..?

Looks really good :-)

I tried adding your texture but it causes that item to never display

Maybe include me some install instructions ? ;-p

Ooh, very odd.

All I did was a simple overwrite-copy

Your phone or window isn't wide enough to display the code box. If it's a phone, try rotating it to landscape mode.
Code: Select all
cp -fav ~/path/to/nssm_helmet_masticone_crowned-4.png   \
        ~/.minetest/mods/nssm/textures/nssm_helmet_masticone_crowned.png


and then relaunched the Minetest server.

Just a thought, did you make sure the ''-4'' was knocked off the end of the filename..?

BTW, I didn't yet do the related inventory and preview images I discovered in the folder, but if you're happy with the general design I'll see about trying those textures too.. :)

Analytical thought, process of elimination, I wondered about the result of forum upload/download and yes, that's working here ... I've just ''cp -fav'' the actually-downloaded image-file ''nssm_helmet_masticone_crowned-4.png'' into the nssm/textures folder, relaunched the Minetest server and the little guy's wearing it fine here.

FWIW, the SHA1 sum is : fe3b5f488281f5eaaa55541b65cf80f6912c2d75

I'll keep thinking..

I'm quite sure you'll have already checked, but just in case, given we're mostly *nix here, and probably more for the sake of future *ooglers (personally I use StartPage and DuckDuckGo), I suddenly thought it worth asking about ''permissions'' too ... the old ''owner'' and ''mode'' stuff ... checked the ~/.minetest/mods/nssm/textures folder and mine are all owned by the same user (me) as is running the server and the mode is ''rw-rw-r--'' aka octal 0664.

HTH :)
