00:28 ecube omg
00:28 VanessaE ?
00:29 ecube just testing lol
00:29 VanessaE heh
00:29 VanessaE so did you put in animated torches? yet?  hm?  hmm???
00:29 VanessaE ;-)
00:29 ecube I did a while ago :P
00:30 ecube I somehow forgot to put in particles though .-.
00:30 VanessaE particles is nice, especially with my high-rez texture packs.
00:30 VanessaE little square -> grains of dirt/stone/etc
00:31 ecube omg my server crashed ._.
00:31 VanessaE oops
00:32 ecube My server is now running in while loop, therefore now permanent :D
00:32 VanessaE heh
00:32 ecube I just have to spam ctrl-C if I want it down
00:39 ecube yay particles is on
00:39 VanessaE cool :-)
00:39 VanessaE just wish sfan5 would fix the positioning of the torch smoke (and make it spawn WAY more often)
01:08 ecube lol
01:11 NakedFury is it possible to add fire and smoke particles to torches?
01:12 VanessaE the particles mod already does that
01:12 NakedFury does it make them like minecraft?
01:12 VanessaE somewhat similar but not identical

10:13 thexyz VanessaE: http://i.imgur.com/vo76s.png
10:14 VanessaE mmhmm?
10:14 VanessaE OH
10:14 VanessaE cool :-)
10:14 thexyz now i only need to add texture defines
10:15 thexyz i guess, i'll need sign_front, sign_back, sign_side, sign_yard_front, sign_yard_back, sign_yard_side, right?
10:15 VanessaE give each one a full 6-image set
10:15 VanessaE or rather,
10:15 VanessaE 5 images:
10:16 VanessaE front, back, top, bottom, and one for the left/right sides.
10:17 thexyz so 5 images would be enough
10:17 VanessaE yes
10:19 VanessaE as long as the sign boards themselves are the same size and in the same place in the node, one set of textures should cover both cases
10:24 VanessaE that way the stick holding up the yard sign will be painted with the part of the side/front/back textures that isn't seen in the wall sign :-)
10:41 thexyz VanessaE: can you take signs from my repo and test it?
10:41 VanessaE sure, sec.
10:44 VanessaE as soon as I hit the right damn button anyway
10:46 VanessaE the yard sign isn't showing the text.
10:47 VanessaE now it is
10:47 VanessaE must be that texture glitch you mentioned.
10:49 VanessaE oh, recommend you use a unique image for each in the inventory
10:50 VanessaE using the default sign might confuse some people
10:50 thexyz how?
10:50 VanessaE well, if you have all three in your inventory, you can't tell them apart
10:51 thexyz three?
10:51 VanessaE they all say "Sign" and have the default texture.  The user might think they crafted the wrong thing
10:51 VanessaE yeah, default sign, your wall sign, yard sign
10:51 thexyz umm...
10:52 thexyz my yard sign = my wall sign in terms of inventory
10:52 VanessaE nuh uh.
10:52 VanessaE not over here it doesn't :-)
10:52 thexyz no it does
10:52 thexyz but stack_max is 1
10:52 VanessaE oh wait, you're right
10:52 VanessaE the stack max threw me
10:54 VanessaE definitely confusing to have both yours and default sign use the same image
10:55 VanessaE I'd suggest a rendering of the yard sign as the image to use
10:55 thexyz who will use default ones when there are those signs?
10:55 thexyz ok, i'll copy it to signs_sign.png
10:55 VanessaE those who are stubborn :-)
10:55 thexyz so that may be changed in modpack
10:55 VanessaE anyone using an old server etc
10:56 VanessaE over on redcrab:30401 for example, 3dforniture exists, which supplies among other things a 3d nodebox-based animated torch, but people there still use regular torches alongside
10:56 VanessaE (go figure)
10:57 thexyz that's what are wipes for =)
10:57 thexyz https://github.com/xyzz/minetest-mods/commi​t/c827576f3f24695245f9e30d1830bb74a3c30b25
10:59 thexyz anything else?
11:00 VanessaE nope, I think that's got it
11:00 thexyz ok, then i'm posting update right now..
11:01 VanessaE cool :-)
