00:02 lhofhansl Hi all... Do we need separate max_block_send_distance and max_block_generate_distance? Are there legitimate reasons for not setting those to identical values? (I'm looking to simplify all the settings we have, and this seems a good one to start). It also came up on #6539
00:02 ShadowBot https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/6539 -- [WIP] Allow zoom to actually show more data. by lhofhansl
00:19 paramat i guess they're different because generating is more intensive than getting an already generated block
00:20 paramat i see a need for 2 separate settings as we have now
00:23 paramat well not so much a need but useful
00:42 paramat sorry dev is so quiet recently =)

01:18 lhofhansl :)
01:18 lhofhansl Perhaps we can at least default one to the other. I.e. generate_distance=-1 means just use the send_distance.
01:19 lhofhansl (that should be the default IMHO anyway)
01:22 paramat not sure the default should be the 2 equal, but maybe
01:23 paramat sofar https://github.com/minetest/minetes​t/pull/6603#issuecomment-343785435 i'll merge it if you improve the code, fun PR
01:23 sofar sure
01:33 paramat hopefully i will merge #6603 and #6619 later today

02:22 lhofhansl another RFQ: Currently ABMs (including mobs) are limited to a fairly low range since they are computationally expensive.
02:23 lhofhansl We could increase the distance if we limit the work done a player's view cone. Would be weird on some level (ABMs not run behind the player for example).
02:23 lhofhansl On the other hand the effect that mobs just disappear is bad too.
02:24 lhofhansl (and hostile mobs couldn't attack from behind... OK talking myself out of that already :) )
02:32 paramat eww
02:32 paramat ABMs control many environmental changes that should not depend on what is seen
02:42 lhofhansl Yeah. Talked myself out of it already.
02:43 lhofhansl It's just very unnatural when mobs simply disappear. Maybe mobs can have further distance along the view cone or something.
