12:33 Jordach joined #minetest-mods
12:33 Jordach sup
12:34 VanessaE hey
12:34 Jordach decided to use a REAL client now
12:34 Jordach adiIRC
12:55 PilzAdam joined #minetest-mods
13:40 Jordach hello PilzAdam
13:40 PilzAdam hi
13:40 Jordach im trying to come up with a real quick lua interface with lua
13:40 Jordach and functions are handy
13:51 Jordach VanessaE, i am going to work on a simple mod that allows quick and simple mods to be made
13:51 Jordach s/simple mod/difficult mod/
13:52 VanessaE cool
13:58 Jordach for now it will be fences, signs, chests, basic nodes (like sand) and basic drawtypes
13:58 Jordach then i might start with a little more complicated
14:02 Jordach https://github.com/Jordach/​Simplistic_Minetest_Modding located here
14:02 Jordach i lgpl'ed it
14:21 Jordach rubenwardy updated my post a little
14:21 Jordach http://minetest.net/forum/viewtopic.php?id=2861
14:45 Jordach VanessaE; can you quickly check this? https://github.com/Jordach/Simplistic_​Minetest_Modding/blob/master/init.lua
14:46 Jordach and no, ive comma'd correctly ;)
14:49 VanessaE your sounds line needs brackets around it
14:49 VanessaE you need to load the concatenated string as a variable name
14:50 VanessaE I don't remember how it's done, something like ["default.node_sound_"..sound.."_defaults()"]
14:54 Jordach http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14​05583/concatenation-of-strings-in-lua
14:54 Jordach filename = filename .. ".tmp"
14:55 Jordach which should work
14:55 VanessaE these aren't strings
14:55 VanessaE per se
14:55 VanessaE you're concatenating variables too
14:56 Jordach damn it
14:56 VanessaE so at the very least, do the above without the brackets
14:56 VanessaE "default.node_sound_"..sound.."_defaults()"
14:56 Jordach they went grey
14:56 Jordach (n++)
14:57 Jordach ill push it to git
14:57 Jordach (faster)
14:57 VanessaE have you seen my latest nodebox abuses? :-)
14:58 Jordach nope
14:58 VanessaE https://github.com/VanessaE/pipeworks
14:58 VanessaE download and play around for a bit :-)
14:59 Jordach im trying to make mods quickly and efficiently
14:59 Jordach without copy and pasting
14:59 Jordach think of it as http://scratch.mit.edu/ for minetest
15:01 Jordach "this is the same for variables I think"
15:04 Jordach yes it shoukld
15:05 * Jordach sneezes
15:05 Jordach i think its thundering
15:06 Jordach PilzAdam, could you take a look at this: https://github.com/Jordach/Simplistic_​Minetest_Modding/blob/master/init.lua
15:07 * PilzAdam looks
15:07 Jordach thanks
15:07 PilzAdam minetest.register_node(MAST​ER_MODNAME..":"..nodename, {
15:08 PilzAdam function un_natural_node(groups, texture, description, nodename, drawtype, sound)
15:09 PilzAdam these two lines had errors (1st: the ".." have to be outside the " 2nd: there was a . instead of ,)
15:10 PilzAdam is_ground_content has no effect
15:10 Jordach its there because its for something
15:10 PilzAdam https://github.com/celeron55/minetes​t/blob/master/doc/lua_api.txt#L1325
15:11 Jordach ill leave it nthere
15:11 PilzAdam thats all (i think)
15:12 Jordach re-pushing
15:14 PilzAdam minetest.register_node(MAST​ER_MODNAME..":"..nodename, {
15:15 PilzAdam only the : have to be in "
15:15 Jordach minetest.register_node("MAST​ER_MODNAME"..:.."nodename", { is this legit?
15:16 PilzAdam you put the names of the variables in "" ; thats wrong
15:16 PilzAdam the : have to be in ""
15:17 Jordach right
15:17 Jordach repushing
15:19 VanessaE minetest.register_node(MAST​ER_MODNAME..":"..nodename, {
15:19 VanessaE that's what you shoulda used
15:20 * Jordach slaps VanessaE with Windows Update
15:20 * VanessaE falls over, dead
15:20 PilzAdam yay
15:20 * Jordach makes PilzAdam unstable with a 2.5 kernel
15:21 PilzAdam :-(
15:21 * Jordach runs loggingbot trough Autoconf version 2.13
15:22 Jordach might disconnect my hard wired tower (this pc)

15:26 Jordach my repos cleaned
15:29 Jordach PilzAdam; for some reason, n++ does this: http://i.imgur.com/OD9RN.png

18:44 VanessaE heh
18:58 Jordach tell me; i cant even get decent speed for games on linux, 200fps in windows xp\
18:59 Jordach VanessaE; then i might work on some more decorative nodes
