01:44 Cylus How is the "freezemelt" property used in the game? By which I mean, how does the engine know when to swap the nodes? What trigger causes freezing and melting?
01:59 VanessaE it's not used anymore is it?
01:59 VanessaE wasn't that one of those finite water/weather properties?

02:45 Cylus VanessaE: Okay, cool. Thanks! I wonder why it's still in the API.
02:46 VanessaE I could be wrong, I don't know.
02:48 Cylus I can't tell what the code says for sure, but it doesn't seem to say much. It might be defining it, but then not even using it.
02:49 Cylus It's in three files. One header, one definition handler, and one tiny function that I'm not sure really does anything.
02:49 Cylus I figured it must do something because it was there, but if it's legacy cruft, that would explain it.
02:50 VanessaE yeah, if it's what I'm remembering, it's cruft.
02:50 Cylus "default:ice" also seems to be hard-coded into the engine, probably also as cruft.
02:50 VanessaE no, that's in minetest_game also
02:50 VanessaE that's a real node at least :P
02:51 Cylus It's in minetest_game, but the proper way to define it in the engine would be as mapgen_ice, then alias it in default to default:ice.
02:51 VanessaE *nod*
02:51 Cylus And it looks like the engine looks up default:ice's node ID, then doesn't do anything with it.
02:52 VanessaE ah, it's still part of the levels stuff
02:52 * VanessaE checks issues..
02:52 Cylus Same with default:torch, but default:torch shows up in the legacy code too, so I ignore it.
02:52 VanessaE https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/1263
02:53 VanessaE yep, cruft.
02:53 VanessaE yeah, no node names should be hard-coded in the engine (except maybe air and 'ignore').  I agree there.
02:53 Cylus Okay, sweet. I can ignore it then. I need to check on some of these things so I can make sure my new game is properly coded.
02:54 Cylus I think it would be best to even use mapgen aliases for handling the legacy map conversions (I tested, and that *will* work), but I doubt I can convince the developers.
02:55 Cylus So I'm leaving that alone.
02:55 Cylus I think "unknown" is hard-coded, probably for good reason. But aside from those three, there's no reason to hard code any of them.
02:56 Cylus s/hard-coded/hard-coded as well/
03:12 * Cylus considers building an "adams" mod, and including "adams:apple"

04:35 blaise finally got that machine running at it's proper clock rate
04:35 blaise XD
04:36 iio7 I don't get it. These last couple of days Bukkit/Craftbukkit has been shut down due to a DMCA. All kinds of projects are spawning a new rather than devs jumping to Minetest.
04:36 codehero joined #minetest
04:37 Cylus iio7: No one knows that we exist over here at Minetest.
04:37 iio7 It's a REAL shame!
04:37 iio7 So much wasted energy.
04:37 Cylus If they knew, maybe we could grow our population ...
04:37 iio7 Yes.
04:37 Cylus Yeah, wasted energy for sure.
04:38 Cylus Even if they wanted to do their own thing, our code would be a great starting point.
04:38 blaise so, get the word out
04:39 Cylus I drop mention of Minetest here and there, but I mostly hang out in the free world. The people there either know about Minetest already or otherwise don't play Minecraft.
04:39 iio7 I have tried this evening what I got was "Minetest isn't that this C++ thing?" and "Are you serious" etc.
04:42 Cylus VanessaE: Not sure if you care or not, but it seems that your nyan cat images, which are properly attributed to you in minetest_game, are not attributed to you in minetest/minimal. So ... I guess pull request if that's an issue.
04:43 VanessaE not a big deal
04:44 Cylus Alright, just making sure.
04:45 VanessaE bbl
04:56 gentoobro i can't seem to find it in the docs, but is there a way to make hollow cubes with the world edit mod?
05:08 blaise so, I turned on strict version checking.. and I only had a few people log in.. neither were my regulars..
05:08 blaise so I'm guessing they're not using the release version of minetest-0.4.10 ?
05:08 blaise did it get re-released?
05:08 blaise and I'm the odd ball?
05:08 VanessaE many people are just too lazy to update
05:09 VanessaE some are on tablets and just don't know
05:09 blaise ah
05:09 VanessaE (also, I'm back obviously)
05:09 blaise VanessaE: welcome back! :D
05:10 blaise at any rate, I've disabled strict version checking for the sake of my users
05:11 blaise :G

05:16 iio7 I am just messing around with the cannon mod, anyone who knows how to fire?
05:16 VanessaE never used it.  maybe punch it with a torch?
05:16 VanessaE (just guessing - that's how I would have coded it)
05:16 iio7 yes, that did it, thanks! :)
05:17 Megaf_ joined #minetest
05:18 blaise lol
05:27 Cylus gentoobro: Those are just cubic entities. Look for the part of the docs dealing with entity definitions, and choose a cubic entity.
05:28 VanessaE Cylus:  I think he means the shape primitives.
05:29 Cylus gentoobro, VanessaE: Oops, my bad. Ignore my statement.
05:29 VanessaE interesting that there is no primitive for that function.  Easy enough to replicate with two //set commands though.
05:39 blaise hrmm
05:40 blaise seems CraigyDavi has a seen mod going on.. https://github.com/CraigyDavi/Craig-Serv​er_game/blob/master/mods/_misc/seen.lua
05:40 blaise I'm highly interested in that project..
05:41 blaise I would very much like my users to be able to ask the server when other users were last online

10:32 TenPlus1 Hi folks...
10:32 TenPlus1 Q: Does the  explody = 1  group actually DO anything ???
10:34 john_minetest TNT explodes.
10:34 john_minetest Maybe it is required so objects can explode
10:35 TenPlus1 so only for tnt, nothing else will explode when given the group...  np
10:36 TenPlus1 tnt node doesnt use explody...  weird, it's a useless group it seems

10:48 basse hi, i'm having some issues setting up a server. it works fine inside local network, but when i try to join from outside i get blank world .. or not even that sometimes.
10:48 TenPlus1 how do you mean ? you connect to an empty world ? or just do not connect to anything ?
10:49 basse Megaf_ suggested i try here for help.. if it is just upload bandwidth problem and can be configured.
10:49 basse TenPlus1: it connects, and it starts uploading (according to server) but nothing comes up to client..
10:50 TenPlus1 is it a  basic world or do you have loads of mods ?
10:50 basse http://pasila.lib.hel.fi/~basse/tmp/minetest.jpg  thats what i'm seeing
10:50 basse this is basic world.
10:50 basse default settings
10:50 TenPlus1 looks like you are trapped inside some blocks, hence the ALL black
10:50 TenPlus1 give yourself privs and fly out...
10:51 TenPlus1 or teleport to another location
10:51 basse TenPlus1: if i connect to that server with local ip (10.0.0.9)  it works just fine
10:51 TenPlus1 using the exact same user name and pass ??
10:51 basse yep
10:52 TenPlus1 strange indeed...
10:52 diemartin TenPlus1, https://github.com/VanessaE/homedecor_m​odpack/issues/74#issuecomment-54952698
10:53 TenPlus1 basse: when connecting through internet are you using the same pc ?
10:53 basse TenPlus1: it's the same machine
10:53 basse i got some timeouts on server log
10:54 TenPlus1 connecction problem
10:54 basse hmm yes i guess so... have to try to tweak the settigs on server side..
10:55 TenPlus1 on the client, go into settings and UNTICK everything... then connect again
10:55 john_minetest https://mediacru.sh/m2jhBcELjJth
10:57 Jordach basse, i get this randomly when connecting to my VM
10:58 Jordach it's a void world, but you're still attached to the server
10:58 basse Jordach: yes, i noticed too that sometimes i can't get in at all, sometimes i get this blank thing..
10:58 basse once i got the world.
11:00 TenPlus1 diemartin/kaeza: I've replied to the post with a screenshot
11:08 kaeza TenPlus1, weird, I see no problem: http://i.imgur.com/rKlLPN8.png
11:09 TenPlus1 very weird... it's a straight replacement from github
11:09 TenPlus1 let me delete and install again on a fresh world... brb
11:10 Jordach kaeza, fix the newlines broken mess
11:10 kaeza Jordach, too late
11:10 Jordach new line without any chars after == new line
11:10 kaeza TenPlus1, ok, also, can you paste the text as you entered into the formspec here?
11:11 TenPlus1 all I typed was:    This is an example of word wrapping using signs_lib mod
11:12 basse thing is, if it's upload bandwidth related (this looks a bit like that) is there way to control that?
11:12 TenPlus1 it's doing exactly the same... cutting off the end
11:13 TenPlus1 lemmie download the mod again, just in case
11:13 kaeza only issue I see is that it collapses whitespace (i.e. two spaces are shown as one space); other than that nothing (and I don't think that "bug" is even worth fixing)
11:13 basse i've been running minecraft server here just fine with no issues
11:13 basse minetest takes so much more bandwidth?
11:16 TenPlus1 k, downloaded homedecor again from github source and unpacked signs_lib to mods folder, made new world, added sign and it now works... *phew*...

12:46 rubenwardy For MMDB XD
12:46 rubenwardy Anycomments?
12:47 john_minetest MMDB should be integrated much more into everything.
12:48 rubenwardy It needs to be fixed first, but year
12:48 rubenwardy *yeah
12:49 john_minetest We should have a fancy mod db, a fancy game db and a UBER-FANCY server list with blinking gif banners and sfx.
12:49 rubenwardy Not gif :S
12:49 rubenwardy I assume you are joking.
12:52 rubenwardy Hopefully games will be added to MMDB
12:53 john_minetest Well, not nessecarily gifs ;)
12:53 * sfan5 licks john_minetest
12:53 john_minetest Man, windows XP allowed me to set gif backgrounds. We had computer stuff in school. We drove our teacher crazy.

13:21 rubenwardy Oh, just click through
13:35 john_minetest The server list needs banners and sorting and icons for the flags. "Ded Dmg PvP Pwd Rol Far"... I know that it is Dedicated, Damage enabled, PvP, Password required. But "Rol" and "Far"?
13:35 john_minetest Rollback and Farming?
13:36 PenguinDad john_minetest: can see far names

15:09 Jordach NekoGloop, Spigot, Bukkit, CraftBukkit got DCMA'd by some dev who dislikes the current state of things

15:11 sfan5 tfw someone not from the MT community suggests Minetest in an MC subreddit
15:11 sfan5 Jordach: I made a wise move and DL'd the last build before it got removed
15:11 sfan5 md_5 started to release new version as patches on that version
15:12 sfan5 smart way to avoid copyright shit

15:14 john_minetest Yes
15:15 john_minetest It is quite nice but you need a seperate account for every computer/device you have.
15:15 sfan5 there are plans to improve that
15:15 john_minetest You can't export the accounts as you would do it with PGP keys.
15:15 theTroy joined #minetest
15:15 john_minetest Yeah, I asked them and they said that there are a few people working on it
15:16 sfan5 john_minetest> You can't export the accounts as you would do it with PGP keys.
15:16 sfan5 thats very sad
15:16 sfan5 I'm not very satisfied with Venom but I can't just use uTox again
15:16 john_minetest uTox is nice.

15:51 YuGiOhJCJ hello, when I write letters that are not ASCII letters in the Minetest chat (or in the "Sign" object), they are not written. I am using Minetest 0.4.10 (Linux). It seems to work good on the Windows version. Is there a way to resolve this bug?
15:51 Jordach YuGiOhJCJ, Signs_lib doesn't support anything other than ASCII (as Lua isn't really ideal for other languages yet?)
15:52 Megaf joined #minetest
15:52 VanessaE mostly because supporting non-ASCII would require hunge numbers of chars in the font
15:53 VanessaE however,
15:53 VanessaE I think he means the default signs
15:53 VanessaE YuGiOhJCJ: install freetype and gettext.
15:53 VanessaE and recompile against those.
15:55 YuGiOhJCJ in fact I mean caracters like "é" or "à", ...
15:55 YuGiOhJCJ *characters
15:55 VanessaE yes.  do the above
15:55 VanessaE install the -dev packages for freetype and gettext and recompile minetest if needed
15:56 JTE_ Lua 5.3 is great. Can't wait for that to be finalized.
15:57 VanessaE JTE_: that will probably be a VERY long time in coming.
15:58 * JTE_ nods.
16:00 YuGiOhJCJ yeah I have the default lua-5.1.5, freetype-2.5.0.1 and gettext-0.18.2.1 packages for Slackware 14.1, maybe they have been compiled with the wrong options... I should recompile each of them and minetest too... huge work ^^
16:01 VanessaE naw, just minetest.  but make sure you have the headers/dev stuff that go with them
16:01 VanessaE (it's been years since I last used slackware, I don't recall how its packages work)

17:21 VanessaE Calinou: https://github.com/VanessaE/angled_walls  <---  better? :)
17:22 VanessaE (short version:  the textures aren't mirrored anymore, the selection boxes are gracefully applied, the collision boxes are good)
17:26 Calinou collision boxes can't be actually good
17:27 Calinou because they can't be rotated
17:27 Calinou so you'll always bump in walls regardless of their angle, never slide on them
17:27 JTE_ the screwdriver makes a mess of things indeed. :<
17:27 VanessaE I know.  but try it anyway
17:27 VanessaE see what I did with it
17:28 Calinou lol, Roblox Wiki's WOT rating “Only for kids”
17:28 Calinou so much abuse of that rating
17:28 Calinou VanessaE, OK, but still won't include in More Blocks
17:28 Calinou if that was your intent, sorry
17:28 VanessaE Calinou: no worries.

17:47 Corvus` joined #minetest
17:47 Krock It's a take-away hand. Isn't it?
17:47 Corvus` Hi, guys.
17:47 Krock hi alone
17:47 Krock wait no. that's not nice to 'exclude' someone
17:47 Corvus` Is there a reason why planks, trees and cobble do not show the texture in the inventory?
17:47 PenguinDad Krock: It's not my hand so I dunno if you can take it :/
17:48 anunakki joined #minetest
17:48 Krock PenguinDad, nvm. I was able to give it to someone else.
17:50 john_minetest Corvus`: Describe your problem further, please. Operating system, minetest version and an exact description.
17:50 john_minetest Is anything else missing? Are strange patterns appearing in the inventory?
17:52 * Calinou gives PenguinDad a hoof
17:53 * PenguinDad searches for a horseshoe
17:53 Corvus` john_minetest: No, everything else is fine, like coal, torches, sticks. OS is linux, version is 0.4.9. http://storage6.static.itmages.ru/i/14/0​909/h_1410285333_2993150_98a766639b.png
17:53 Corvus` john_minetest: strange thing is, it's like that in every texture pack
17:54 PenguinDad Corvus`: does it work without any texture pack?
17:54 Corvus` Nope.
17:54 Calinou what's your graphics card?
17:54 Calinou lspci | grep VGA
17:54 Calinou in a terminal
17:55 Corvus` VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600] (rev a2)
17:55 Calinou very old card
17:55 Corvus` I'm quite old myself.
17:56 Corvus` You think graphic card shows signs of wear? :)
17:56 Corvus` Doesn't apply textures sometimes? :)
17:56 * Krock high fives Corvus` for having same NVIDIA model
17:56 Corvus` Krock: :)
17:56 Calinou all the very old NVIDIA models will eventually not work well for Minetest
17:56 VanessaE back
17:56 Krock ehm.
17:57 Calinou the problem is often due to graphics driver; but you can try disabling Preload item visuals
17:57 Calinou in the game options
17:57 Krock Calinou, they work but the problem might be the CPU
17:57 Calinou no
17:57 Calinou it's purely rendering-related
17:57 Krock mhm it stays at least at 90% CPU usage
17:57 Corvus` Calinou: that didn't help
17:58 Corvus` But ok. So graphic driver doesn't like planks, but it's totally ok for sticks. :)
18:01 proller joined #minetest
18:02 * Krock has a random mod searching mode now
18:03 Calinou sticks use 2D rendering
18:03 Calinou all the blocks use 3D-ish rendering that is extremely hacky
18:03 Calinou the Irrlicht developers would likely raise a pitchfork at us if we asked them ;)
18:03 Krock o/ kaeza ( diemartin )
18:04 diemartin pong
18:04 diemartin hi
18:04 Krock hai, haven't seen you a while. Almost missd ya.
18:05 diemartin been busy trying to get rid of my modem's corpse
18:05 Krock :/
18:06 diemartin (read that as, I was with no Internetz for about two weeks)
18:06 Krock diemartin, kids in europe couldn't life that long without. lol-
18:08 Krock so. new talking stuff is needed.
18:09 SaltyDog001 joined #minetest
18:10 SaltyDog001 Good day all :)  Any easy way to add privs to the auth.txt file? I added a mod and need additional priv now.
18:11 * Krock licks SaltyDog001 the salt off
18:11 Krock see minetest.regster_privilege in doc/lua_api.txt
18:11 kaeza sed -e 's/yourname\:[^:]*:\(.*\)/\1, yourpriv/'
18:11 SaltyDog001 Krock :)
18:11 VanessaE SaltyDog001: just  /grant singleplayer <that priv>
18:12 kaeza + auth.txt
18:12 ImQ009 joined #minetest
18:12 kaeza eh I fail
18:12 jin_xi that sed line looks like a bunch of angry guys
18:12 Krock I guess the target was about registering a new privilege
18:13 SaltyDog001 I have many users already and need to somehow add a new priv to all these users. New users will have the additional priv. Maybe sometype of macro to edit the auth.txt file.
18:13 VanessaE I just read it as needing to give himself the necessary priv that some other mod already registered
18:13 SaltyDog001 Sorry, did not express myself well.
18:13 Krock and default_privs doesn't affect already registered users?
18:13 SaltyDog001 i added the new priv and it doesn not modify the auth.txt file.
18:14 SaltyDog001 added priv in the minetest.conf file
18:14 VanessaE SaltyDog001: sed -i "s/interact/interact,yourpriv/g" auth.txt
18:14 SaltyDog001 ok is that admin command in game?
18:14 VanessaE that's a command you can run in your shell.
18:14 kaeza alternatively, for name, t in pairs(minetest.auth_table) do t.privs.your_priv = true end
18:15 VanessaE similar to kaeza's but easier to understand for those of us who aren't fluent in regexp ;)
18:15 SaltyDog001 I knew I should have learned unix/linux in college :(
18:15 Krock How I would do it: replace "\n" with ",<yourpriv>\n" and replace ":," with ":"
18:17 PenguinDad "F..k" censoring the regex way :D
18:17 VanessaE folk?
18:17 SaltyDog001 VanessaE, WOW it worked... a thousand thanks :)
18:18 VanessaE kaeza: http://xkcd.com/1171/
18:18 Krock PenguinDad, "cool" starts with a 'c' and and with a 'l'.
18:18 Krock s/and/ends
18:20 * SaltyDog001 buys hot coffee (or beverage of your choice) for the whole gang
18:21 Krock a salty dog drinks 001 coffee
18:21 Krock sry. I like your nickname.
18:21 * Calinou never drinks coffee 8)
18:21 Krock ^
18:22 kaeza VanessaE, hah
18:22 VanessaE :)
18:23 * SaltyDog001 buys Calinou bev of his/her choice
18:23 Calinou I hate cola… so probably orange juice :D
18:24 SaltyDog001 fresh squeezed of course
18:25 Krock what's v^^8?

18:46 john_minetest Lol, who uses chrome?
18:46 john_minetest I don't think that it is even in the repo.
18:47 VanessaE chromium or gtfo
18:47 john_minetest Yep. Chrome isn't even in the archlinux repos.
18:47 Calinou Chromium has its pack of issues
18:47 john_minetest At least not in the official one. But chromium is in the official repo.
18:47 john_minetest And firefox ftw.
18:47 Calinou Google doesn't want users to use Chromium, they try to mix both to confuse users, etc
18:48 VanessaE Calinou: indeed, but it works well and the one thing that keeps me using it is that it doesn't crash, and that in firefox if one tab hangs up, the whole browser does
18:48 STHGOM joined #minetest
18:48 Calinou Firefox almost never crashes for me…
18:48 Calinou it can restore tabs anyway when it does
18:48 Calinou the consequence generally isn't that big
18:48 Calinou (if you're writing long posts: keep them in your buffer, Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C on a regular basis)
18:48 Calinou or better, write them outside of your browser, also gives you a better view
18:50 VanessaE that's what I usually do; firefox doesn't crash for me, but I don't like how it generally works anyway
18:53 john_minetest I write wiki entrys and similar outside of the browser. You never know when you accidently refresh the page.
18:57 Calinou check out about:config, it has lots of options
19:07 john_minetest check out about:robots and about:mozilla

20:33 jordan4ibanez is there a magic mod?
20:33 VanessaE no ieda
20:34 Calinou there's potions
20:34 VanessaE no idea, rather.
20:34 Calinou (mod is by Traxie21, if you want to search… the topic was created way before the switch to phpBB so it's a pain to search)
20:35 jordan4ibanez Is there block friction yet?
20:35 jordan4ibanez oh that's abandoned
20:37 jordan4ibanez Is there anything like rotarycraft from MC yet?
20:37 VanessaE which does what?
20:37 jordan4ibanez uses torque and horsepower as the basis for the mod
20:38 VanessaE I don't know if such a thing exists but that should be doable I would think.
20:38 jordan4ibanez It's very doable
20:38 jordan4ibanez Can we have custom meshes for blocks yet?
20:38 VanessaE since technic uses packets of electricity for work
20:38 VanessaE no, not yet.
20:39 VanessaE but Jordach made a hybrid that fakes it
20:39 jordan4ibanez Oh really? May you show me?
20:39 VanessaE uses entities combined with nodeboxes to get the same effect
20:39 jordan4ibanez And is this an api?
20:39 VanessaE he did a chest that can actually open up, and homedecor desk fan is also one such
20:39 VanessaE it's not an API function.
20:40 Calinou night ^_^
20:41 jordan4ibanez Maybe I can make it into one. If I can I could possibly make a rotational based mod which I could release, and then give to rba for him to use in his mod

21:01 theTroy joined #minetest
21:01 jordan4ibanez is there a way to get the block that the player is pointing at?
21:02 VanessaE in some cases yes
21:03 VanessaE depends on what you're doing when you need it
21:03 VanessaE e.g. on_punch, after_dig_node, etc.
21:03 jordan4ibanez nothing at all, just the block that the player's looking at
21:04 VanessaE and I think there's a line-of-sight function also
21:14 jordan4ibanez this gui is quite awesome
