19:17 erlehmann joined #minetest-delta
19:17 erlehmann guess who's back
19:17 erlehmann back again
19:17 erlehmann you are all still alive
19:17 erlehmann i just looked up cellular automata and life was fun again
19:17 erlehmann and i thought of you
19:17 erlehmann al of you
19:18 erlehmann it is all fun and games! :)
19:18 erlehmann how is the current state of minetest?
19:18 PilzAdam 0.4.3
19:18 erlehmann no, feature-wise.
19:19 PilzAdam the modding API is nice and there are tons of mods in the forum
19:19 erlehmann great. i shall install minetest again. and maybe make a wireworld patch.
19:19 erlehmann debian still has minetest 0.3.1
19:19 erlehmann hmm
19:19 erlehmann who has packaged that?
19:20 erlehmann the debian version has no lua API
19:20 erlehmann the lua API was great
19:20 PilzAdam hey you are in the MT credits!
19:21 erlehmann probably. i made the rails, cactii and the icon, clouds some minor stuff. also maintained it more than a year ago, until i got a girlfriend.
19:21 erlehmann PilzAdam, maintaining it was weird fun! http://daten.dieweltistgarnichtso.ne​t/pics/zeichnungen/minetest-dad.png
19:22 erlehmann i find it great that minetest is still there
19:22 erlehmann you are all heros, especially c55 and kahrl
19:23 PilzAdam kahrl is gone
19:23 PilzAdam (before i came here)
19:23 erlehmann oh.
19:25 erlehmann and the rest?
19:25 PilzAdam who is "the rest"?
19:29 erlehmann PilzAdam, what have you developed?
19:30 PilzAdam only mods: carts (buggy), farming, TNT, beds, simple mobs (reimplemented dm and oerkki with lua)
19:30 PilzAdam minecraft like item drop and pickup
19:30 PilzAdam this are the main things
19:35 Taoki joined #minetest-delta
19:45 jin_xi joined #minetest-delta
19:46 ecube joined #minetest-delta
19:53 erlehmann you made the carts?
19:53 erlehmann that is great :)
19:53 erlehmann and farming is also nice
19:53 erlehmann PilzAdam, have you heard of wireworld?
19:54 PilzAdam no
19:54 erlehmann http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireworld
19:54 erlehmann one could use it to simulate electricity in minetest
19:54 erlehmann it is a cellular automata, that means a grid with rules. cells can be wire, isolator, electron head or electron tail
19:54 erlehmann you see on the wikipedia site that it can do diodes
19:55 erlehmann and logic gates
19:55 erlehmann it is much more simple to understand than redstone
19:55 erlehmann i once wanted to make a mechanics mod
19:55 erlehmann but teddydestodes never merged his animations, if i am correct
19:56 Anchakor so you got rid of the g/f and got back here? :)
19:57 PilzAdam wireworld is realy interesting!
19:57 jin_xi erlehmann: that looks very cool
19:57 erlehmann indeeds!
19:57 erlehmann and it is easy to implement
19:57 erlehmann as you only need 4 new materials and some transition rules
19:57 PilzAdam i could do this in ~30 mins.
19:58 erlehmann 1. wire near electron head becomes electron head. 2. electron head becomes electron tail. 3. electron tail becomes wire.
19:58 erlehmann that is it, i think.
19:58 jin_xi PilzAdam: do it!
19:59 PilzAdam erlehmann, a wire only becomes a head if <= 2 heads are arround it
19:59 erlehmann oh.
19:59 erlehmann i see
20:00 erlehmann but the point is that the rules are minimal and you have electricity.
20:00 erlehmann then we just need one kind of generator
20:00 erlehmann like, if you move a magnetic cart along a wire, it generates electrons
20:00 erlehmann hehe
20:00 erlehmann :D
20:00 erlehmann fuckin magnets
20:00 erlehmann how do they work
20:10 Taoki joined #minetest-delta
20:11 erlehmann PilzAdam, are you working on that? i am excited!
20:11 PilzAdam sure
20:12 erlehmann great!
20:36 * Taoki wonders what's being worked on
20:43 Taoki Things are pretty boring ATM so new features are exciting to hear about :P
20:44 PilzAdam Taoki, read the log
20:44 Taoki Reconnected earlier, I'll try
20:46 mrtux joined #minetest-delta
20:46 erlehmann Taoki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireworld
20:47 Taoki interesting
20:48 Taoki oh... carts? Nice
20:48 Taoki I recomomend waiting on my models code, because I'm adding attachments. Which should allow attaching players to lua entities (not sure if carts are that, if not ignore this in case they're nodes)
20:49 Taoki That should work nicely for carts too

22:13 erlehmann why turn it off and on?
22:16 PilzAdam if you want to build a complex circuit its easier if its off
22:54 PilzAdam joined #minetest-delta
22:55 cy1 joined #minetest-delta
22:55 erlehmann PilzAdam, but wire alone does not trigger
