00:14 harrison The Zoloft bug, the Pristiq doll and the Abilify umbrella walk into a bar. The bartender says "Hey! I recognize you guys from TV! I went through a bad depression a few years ago and every drug my doctor tried gave me sexual side effects. Frankly, your ads are misleading, and no genitalless kawaii floating ovoid, prim little clockwork, or notetaking umbrella sidekick at an applepicking picnic can change that."
00:14 harrison The Pristiq doll replies "Oh yeah? How's this for a sexual side effect?"
00:14 harrison "F*** YOU!"

11:08 bas080 cool. keeping it 16x16px?
11:08 Jordach yes
11:08 Jordach smoothed lrfurn, mmm
11:08 Jordach might call it smooth'd
11:09 Jordach smooth'd(efault)
11:10 Jordach say fucking what!? clementine is burning 50% of cpu time
11:11 Jordach better, lowered the audio buffer, changed output
11:14 bas080 i was wondering if it is possible to get node meta data using voxelmanip. I want to make a tool that removes all nodes placed by a defined player.
11:14 Jordach bas080, /rollback <player>
11:14 Jordach if rollback is enabled
11:15 bas080 nice!
11:15 Jordach drop a bucket of lava? no problem!
11:15 Jordach it clears the source AND the flowing
11:15 bas080 so how can i see if rollback is enabled?
11:15 Jordach it's a conf setting
11:15 bas080 rollback = true?
11:15 bas080 and can i set it after the map has been made?

11:16 bas080 Hey PilzAdam
11:16 Jordach bas080, ^
11:16 Jordach the rollback log can be used at any time
11:17 bas080 Ok ty Jordach
11:17 Jordach bas080, be warned, it likes to use lots of hard disk space
11:17 bas080 i am
11:18 Jordach VanessaE's server had horror
11:18 Jordach that*
11:19 VanessaE ?
11:20 Jordach where the rollback log filled your drive
11:20 VanessaE oh, no it never did that.
11:21 VanessaE it got pretty big, but never filled the drive
11:21 VanessaE redcrab's logs did that once I think, though
11:21 VanessaE but that was the debug log, not rollback
11:22 Zeitgeist_ joined #minetest
11:26 bas080 so what if some one started fixing the nodes that you want to apply rollback to. What happens to the nodes that where changed after the "troll" did his work?
11:27 Taoki joined #minetest
11:29 Jordach if they were replaced, they return to what they were
11:29 Jordach before the troll made improvements
11:30 Jordach so if i mined some coal, that coal would go back into that cave as if i never mined it
11:31 bas080 cool. and if i dirtified a house and the owner of the house digged it out and placed a table in his house the table would be gone
11:31 Jordach if you rolledback his actions
11:31 Jordach yes.
11:31 bas080 and if i rollback my actions
11:31 Jordach the house returns to normal
11:32 bas080 with or without table?
11:32 Jordach without, he never dug out his house
11:32 proller calinou destroys 8000+ blocks on my server, and rollback was disabled ;(
11:32 Jordach nor did he place the table, as you just said
11:33 bas080 Jordach, awesome

15:45 Calinou well it depends on countries
15:45 nore Zeg9, do items in item frames re-appear when you do /clearobjects?

15:53 jojoa1997 So i am using the game from VanessaE's(one on her server) and everytime i load it i get somekind of error saying"C++ Exception". Now does anyone know what it means? I have only found the bug in gloopblocks and technic. <ight it be because i am using windoews  or maybe my C++ is out of date?
15:53 rsiska joined #minetest
15:54 Exio4 C++ is the language
15:55 Peacock you need to buy a new copy of C++
15:57 jojoa1997 i know but why does it happen
15:57 Exio4 it is available for only 350USD+shipping!
15:57 jojoa1997 also i cant but C++
15:57 jojoa1997 anyways isnt C++ free?
15:57 jojoa1997 since i already have it on my computer
15:58 Exio4 if you know what it is you can't be seriously asking that jojoa
15:58 Exio4 it is the language
15:58 Exio4 *and only the language*

15:59 DanDuncombe jojoa1997,  You need to adjust your client specially to cope with the sheer  number of nodes. I can't remember what you have to change, ask VanessaE
16:00 DanDuncombe Can a moderator move my TBM reloaded mod to mod releases please?
16:01 jojoa1997 ok
16:01 jojoa1997 does that mean compileing stuff
16:02 DanDuncombe I don't know
16:02 Peacock you have to compile the latest Assembly
16:04 Peacock effing sweet: http://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/montreal/201308/31/01-4685039-la-conference-islamiste-de-montreal-est-annulee.php
16:04 DanDuncombe Will a moderator move the TBM Reloaded mod?
16:04 jojoa1997 DAn
16:05 jojoa1997 DanDuncombe you have to ask in the topic move section in the forum
16:05 DanDuncombe Not necessacrily
16:05 DanDuncombe I have asked here for pretty much all of my mods
16:06 jojoa1997 yeah but it is better fro the forum
16:06 jojoa1997 you ask once and they will move it
16:06 DanDuncombe They sometimes take weeks to move though
16:06 jojoa1997 also when no moderator is on irc which will never happen probably then they can still move it
16:06 jojoa1997 not lately and if it doesnt move one day ask the next
16:07 DanDuncombe I have asked now
16:08 Peacock dude, i once waited 3-4 weeks, be patient :p
16:08 DanDuncombe I waited 2 billion years

16:09 DanDuncombe Is it moved yet?
16:09 Peacock besides even the american moderators are on european time :p

16:10 DanDuncombe A nice screeny of VanessaE's survival server: http://s9.postimg.org/84jm2zw3z/screenshot_89644473.png
16:11 jojoa1997 yeah
16:11 jojoa1997 Peacock if VanessaE was up at normal times(aka my times) i would be able to ask atm
16:12 DanDuncombe Shows most good stuff,except for twoelk's awesome castle
16:12 jojoa1997 it is noon in our time
16:12 jojoa1997 but her sleep schedual is all over the place
16:12 DanDuncombe It is 5:15 PM my time

16:12 DanDuncombe She sleeps whenever she is tired
16:12 Peacock hell even i can get by on 3-4 hours sleep for weeks on end lol
16:13 jojoa1997 NA?
16:13 jojoa1997 oh north america
16:13 jojoa1997 well VanessaE doesnt have a job outside of her house(haveing to drive to work) or something so she pretty much is on her own schedual

16:15 DanDuncombe Kinda random
16:16 Peacock we need more biomes in general, there's gotta be more to earth than plain dirt/desert/jungle
16:16 DanDuncombe Tundra for a start
16:16 DanDuncombe Then grassy plains
16:16 DanDuncombe Then, mud deserts
16:16 Peacock epic valleys and plateaus

19:29 DanDuncombe Is there any way of setting a collisionbox for a node?
19:31 LazyJ joined #minetest
19:31 DanDuncombe Is there?
19:39 DanDuncombe Hellooooooooo?
19:41 Calinou joined #minetest
19:44 DanDuncombe Is anyone there??
19:44 Calinou DanDuncombe: ask your question
19:44 DanDuncombe Is there any way of setting a collisionbox for a node?
19:45 DanDuncombe Because my nodebox is way bigger than normal node size
19:45 Calinou collision box is linked to node :/
19:45 DanDuncombe In fact, 3x3x5
19:46 bas080 joined #minetest
19:46 DanDuncombe But collision only seems to be up to half a node beyond normal node size
19:46 Calinou terrible hack: use an ABM or such (look at doors mod) to put a walkable, invisible nodebox node above a non-walkable and visible nodebox node
19:46 Calinou offset it, and use it as collision box
19:48 DanDuncombe Also, with my tbm reloaded mod, should it use tbm:floor as flooring as it does currently, or go back to the cheaper but uglier cobblestone,which it can get whilst mining?
19:49 DanDuncombe Or should it use whatever is in the floor slot?
19:49 DanDuncombe Or, should it use unlimited floor nodes, but they don't drop anything when broken?
19:50 DanDuncombe I think I should switch back to cobble.

20:51 DanDuncombe Sorry to be a bore
20:51 DanDuncombe (no pun intended)
20:54 DanDuncombe Also, should I remove rails placement from tbm, and make it a slot to put the drill instead?
20:55 DanDuncombe Actually, I won't
20:55 DanDuncombe Can a node force-load chunks around itself?
20:56 DanDuncombe sfan5, do you know

21:05 john_minetest looks nice.
21:06 proller need bigger! more! random! elements
21:06 jin_xi boring as fuck, but im going for the low hanging fruit now...
21:06 proller to autobuild great city
21:06 jin_xi yeah, im trying to do this... atm only random rotation done.
21:08 jin_xi but somehow i think ppl dont like big and nice generated stuff... maybe cause it makes their builds look lame?
21:09 proller maybe multi level intersections of 5-10 house blocks can produce something intresting

21:18 john_minetest proller: It's simple. Make a server, copy the buildings with worldedit and let them spawn.
21:18 john_minetest kaeza: hi.

21:21 john_minetest jojoa1997: Hi, did your atomar reactor work?
21:22 proller john_minetest, i want something automatic with lot of params
21:23 john_minetest proller: Maybe it is possible to build a skyscraper out of modules. Simply make several modules and generate houses. Like: a is the roof and b is a floor, a house might be:
21:23 john_minetest a
21:23 john_minetest b
21:23 john_minetest b
21:23 john_minetest Or a and hundereds of bs
21:23 john_minetest And minetest bot will kick me soon
21:23 john_minetest Because he thinks I am spamming.
21:23 john_minetest Or not.
21:23 john_minetest lol
21:24 proller skyscraper == big city  but with big Y and small area
21:27 john_minetest I only meant stackable units that can get from house size to skyscraper size.

21:29 jin_xi turtle mod does this, http://imgur.com/a/kZzu1 but buildings should not be a problem
21:33 jojoa1997 <john_minetest> jojoa1997: Hi, did your atomar reactor work?: Nope i have finished building it i am too low on iron
21:33 jojoa1997 i have not
21:34 john_minetest Okay. But you began one on VE Creative server, there you should have enough iron :D
21:35 jojoa1997 yeah that was just to test the blowing up radius to see if it is too close to my place on survival
21:35 jojoa1997 also VanessaE is offline atm(bad storms i think) so i cant really go on to collect more iron
21:36 jojoa1997 is anyone working on biomes atm
21:36 jojoa1997 is anyone working on biomes atm
21:36 jojoa1997 sorry didnt update
21:39 john_minetest Lol, there is internet explorer for windows...
21:40 jojoa1997 ?
21:41 john_minetest https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ies4linux/
21:41 john_minetest Lol, I never thought that anybody would run this crazy beast without being forced to...
21:43 jojoa1997 um
21:43 jojoa1997 is there any way to reduce lag from my lan server?

21:57 OldCoder Hey
21:58 john_minetest Hi OldCoder! Your servers are running good. Reduced lag and terrain loading in "fast-run" speed.
22:01 OldCoder Ah
22:01 OldCoder Glad to hear it
22:01 sdzen joined #minetest
22:01 * OldCoder look forward to LevelDB integration
22:01 OldCoder sdzen hi
22:01 OldCoder *looks forward
22:01 OldCoder I'll need the revert to make old worlds compatible or I ain't upgrading
22:03 john_minetest OldCoder: Been away for 2 days looking for a flat in the town where I will study. 600 km away from my home town :b . So I didn't continue work on Zegaton II. Anyways it has to wait for leveldb.
22:05 OldCoder john_minetest, Whatever seems best

22:42 thefamilygrog66 howdy folks
22:42 kaeza hey grog
22:42 thefamilygrog66 I have a question about sounds
22:43 iqualfragile hi kids
22:43 thefamilygrog66 hey
22:44 john_minetest hi thefamilygrog66
22:44 thefamilygrog66 hey john
22:45 kaeza just ask
22:46 diemartin joined #minetest
22:47 VanessaE thefamilygrog66: *poke*
22:48 thefamilygrog66 howdy V
22:48 VanessaE lrfurn has HDX support now :)
22:48 thefamilygrog66 what does that mean? haha
22:49 VanessaE my texture pack, silly :)
22:50 thefamilygrog66 ahh, gotcha
22:50 thefamilygrog66 cool! such a hassle making that many textures...
22:51 VanessaE actually once I came up with a good template for the couches, it became pretty easy
22:51 thefamilygrog66 hey, lua uses pseudo-random for math.random, correct?
22:51 VanessaE your original textures were helpful to that end.  I..um...*ahem* borrowed the contour shading (from the grey items) :-)
22:51 thefamilygrog66 right on
22:52 thefamilygrog66 wtfpl!
22:52 VanessaE :)
22:53 thefamilygrog66 if I want a sound to be generated on random punches/clicks, what would be the simplest way to do it?
22:53 kaeza math.random()
22:53 thefamilygrog66 that's pseudo-random though, no?
22:54 kaeza if math.random(1, 100) == 1 then --[[ play sound ]] end
22:54 thefamilygrog66 thanks, I'll try that
22:54 kaeza that's for a 1% chance
22:54 thefamilygrog66 exactly
22:54 VanessaE or better, a=math.random(1,10);  if a == 1 then --[[play a sound]] elseif a==2 then --[[play a different sound]] end
22:54 VanessaE for as many sounds as you want
22:55 VanessaE basically, the brute-force way :P
22:55 thefamilygrog66 heads need screams. occasionally.
22:55 thefamilygrog66 :)
22:55 VanessaE oh G*d
22:55 thefamilygrog66 muahaha
22:56 kaeza thefamilygrog66, what is "pseudo-random"? (in this context)
22:57 VanessaE less random than thermal noise :P
22:57 thefamilygrog66 I just read that, kaeza - in other words, it's not really random unless you add a math.randomseed based on the time, or something like that
22:58 kaeza VanessaE, hah
22:58 kaeza thefamilygrog66, FWIW, all (?) computer algorithms for generating random numbers are "pseudo random" :P
22:59 kaeza (unless you seed it with a hash of LM's messages)
22:59 thefamilygrog66 good enough for me
22:59 thefamilygrog66 now I just need to record some err...sounds. o_O
23:00 Miner_48er joined #minetest
23:00 thefamilygrog66 hey miner
23:01 kaeza in general, thoguh, it's recommended to use math.random() for all things except terrain generation, which should use PseudoRandom class {{cn}}
23:02 kaeza though*
23:03 kaeza anyway, back to adding something to the next technic (a.k.a. homedecor :P)
23:04 VanessaE haha
23:04 Mati^2 joined #minetest
23:04 VanessaE didn't I add config options to turn off some components of homedecor?
23:05 kaeza yup... but still I can't get off my head the idea of splitting the thing into a modpack
23:06 kahrl randomizing sound effects is built in by the way
23:06 kahrl just add a number to the file name
23:06 john_minetest gtg, bye
23:06 VanessaE oh I forgot about that
23:11 thefamilygrog66 random "OW" sound mission successful, hahaha
23:11 thefamilygrog66 now I need to records more sounds
23:12 thefamilygrog66 kahrl, what's the syntax for randomizing sound effects?
23:12 jojoa1997 joined #minetest
23:12 kahrl https://github.com/minetest/minetest/blob/master/doc/lua_api.txt#L199
23:13 kahrl though keep in mind each client randomized the sound on its own
23:13 kahrl so if several players hear the sound each may hear a different one
23:13 kahrl randomizes*
23:13 thefamilygrog66 sweet, that makes it very easy - thanks
23:14 thefamilygrog66 don't have to change the file name now
23:15 kaeza just grab your favorite sound editor and make 10 copies at different pitches
23:15 kaeza "I gave that pitch a change, pitches love changes" :P
23:18 thefamilygrog66 audacity
23:19 thefamilygrog66 Simonster's getting a kick out of the heads randomly yelling/grunting when hit
23:27 thefamilygrog66 thanks for the info, folks!
23:28 jojoa1997 left #minetest
23:32 Exio4 a=math.random(1,10);  if a == 1 then --[[play a sound]] elseif a==2 then --[[play a different sound]] end
23:32 Exio4 i would use an array
23:32 Exio4 sounds[x] with the data and x being 1-10
23:32 Exio4 or so
23:39 djdduty joined #minetest
23:54 VanessaE Exio4: or do what kahrl said
23:56 jojoa1997 joined #minetest
23:56 Exio4 yeah, but for the bruteforce way
