00:00 Sokomine Taoki: that's fine! still needs some polish imho...but does look promising (sadly, polish is usually what takes most time)

01:07 RealBadAngel Taoki, your villages are great
01:07 Taoki RealBadAngel: Thanks! Still need to fix a few bugs in the new system, but I'm very happy with how they work now
01:08 RealBadAngel one thing comes in mind, those suspended roads could look more like bridges
01:08 Taoki The default structures aren't that great, but yeah
01:09 RealBadAngel and one thing is still missing
01:09 RealBadAngel the villagers :)
01:17 Taoki My game will combine structures mod with creatures mod, and more
01:37 Taoki joined #minetest
01:43 Sokomine i'm working on villagers for mg_villages. right now tested traders in adventuretest

02:42 segfault22 How do I get the output of string.split() to be written to a table with a specified variable-name
02:44 segfault22 More specifically, does string.split() output to rows or columns in the table
02:44 Wayward_Tab joined #minetest
02:46 segfault22 string.split() returns a table with nil values when I try to use it to split stackstrings
02:48 segfault22 does anyone here successfully use tables output from string.split()
03:01 segfault22 It appears that most helpful information about lua tables has been replaced with wiki talk page excerpts regarding some guy's ideas for new changes to lua, or guides on how to make c++ work with lua stuff

03:16 Pilcrow182 hello everyone! is VanessaE around/awake, or does anyone else have experience with signs_lib?
03:20 VanessaE what's up?
03:24 Pilcrow182 hi VanessaE. the default font is too small for me, but when replacing it with one from the extra_fonts directory, it seems to crop the lower part of the letters. shown here is the 34px font: http://i.imgur.com/AFIRjiy.png
03:24 VanessaE odd, it's not supposed to do that
03:24 VanessaE a higher-resolution font is supposed to be displayed at the same height/size
03:25 VanessaE there's a signs char db file in your world dir.
03:25 VanessaE delete it and try again
03:26 Pilcrow182 still the same. I'll try updating, as I don't know for sure if I have the latest version. also, I'm running 0.4.12-stable, not -dev, if that matters.
03:27 VanessaE that won't matter
03:27 VanessaE file an issue against homedecor for now
03:27 VanessaE I'll point kaeza at it, since signs_lib is mostly his work
03:29 VanessaE he and I have been wanting to make a multi-font-size mode for signs, which is partly what those fonts are eventually gonna be used for
03:29 Pilcrow182 I'm going to make sure it's still that way in the latest version of homedecor first. the one I have is probably about a month old.
03:29 VanessaE but I have to wait for him to do it.  I don't understand his code :)
03:31 Pilcrow182 heh. there's definitely some interesting stuff there though. the hex hacking in read_char_size() is a neat idea...  :)
03:40 Pilcrow182 alright, it's the same in the latest git, so I'm filing the issue. also experimenting to see if I can solve it. seems like there's some static number that should be dynamic...
03:51 Pilcrow182 ok, the issue is filed, VanessaE. Thanks for your help!
04:05 VanessaE ok
04:05 VanessaE meanwhile, HDX just got a bunch of updates.
04:05 VanessaE yay.
04:05 VanessaE :)
04:27 Pilcrow182 awesome! I like HDX, but using HD textures makes my computer slow...  :(
04:30 Pilcrow182 oh, VanessaE, something else about signs_lib: would anyone be interested in a custom formspec bg image I made? (I didn't like the starry one much)  http://i.imgur.com/sGA4Lin.png
04:32 VanessaE nah, in fact I just updated the HDX version of that earlier today
04:32 VanessaE thanks anyway though
04:34 Pilcrow182 ok, just thought I'd offer. that's just the bg I use, personally.

12:54 rubenwardy How can I see if a directory exists from lua?
12:54 rubenwardy (yes, I have googled)
12:54 rubenwardy I can't see a minetest.is_dir function
12:55 rubenwardy and this sort of thing needs to be done by C
12:55 rubenwardy as lua doesn't have this support natively
12:55 rubenwardy (LuaFileSystem is a module which adds this, but with mod security and the need to run on windows complicating things...")
12:56 rubenwardy lol, I'm so used to typing print("sdknsd")
12:59 blaze joined #minetest
13:06 technomancy it's reeeeeally weird, but yeah, I found basic FS stuff to be missing
13:07 technomancy maybe it was added some time in the past 9 years
13:10 rubenwardy https://github.com/rubenwardy/mtpm is already pretty functional
13:10 rubenwardy you can install mods
13:10 rubenwardy but I use os.execute https://github.com/rubenwardy/​mtpm/blob/master/core.lua#L52
13:14 technomancy oh sweet
13:14 technomancy nice work
13:14 technomancy does this work using depends.txt?
13:14 rubenwardy it will do
13:14 rubenwardy It will work like how pip or npm works
13:14 rubenwardy like you could do mtpm -r depends.txt

14:50 technomancy b
14:50 technomancy oops
14:51 JamesTait crazyR_, yeah, I may well end up doing that.
14:52 technomancy as long as you pull in build deps using apt it's easy peasy
14:53 DusXMT Plus, for a very tiny, nearly unnoticable speed-boost, you can compile it with processor-specific optimizations :3

22:25 catninja I've finally succeded in uploading a mod to github!!11!1111 :D :O :D
22:26 catninja I just had to share. this is a big step for me
22:26 catninja https://github.com/catninja-/midsummer
22:27 est31 you should add a license
22:27 catninja Oh right
22:28 catninja what is the most "free" license? I've used cc-by-sa for images befor but know nothing about code
22:29 est31 then the GPL is something for you
22:29 bjrohan_ joined #minetest
22:29 est31 it has the "share alike" part
22:29 est31 if you dont want "share alike", then use MIT
22:29 est31 also, all of the content is created by you?
22:29 Viper cc-by-sa is not most free license
22:30 Viper hi catninja wd
22:32 catninja Viper: I know, I'm just used to people thinking that even that is too liberal
22:32 Viper did you look here? https://creativecommons.org/licenses/
22:33 bjrohan joined #minetest
22:33 Taoki VanessaE: Hi. I fixed the topic, and added license in the mod's readme.txt (it's WTFPL like Creatures). It should be okay to move it to mod releases now
22:33 frecel joined #minetest
22:34 catninja Viper: yes but that was a couple of years ago ;)
22:34 Taoki Especially since I just finished the commits that introduced the final bug fixes and optimizations
22:34 * Viper would use GPL for code
22:34 VanessaE Taoki: ok.  link?
22:34 Taoki VanessaE: https://forum.minetest.net/viewtop​ic.php?f=9&amp;t=5524&amp;p=182294
22:34 VanessaE Taoki: fix the subject too
22:34 Taoki I did. Edited the first post
22:34 VanessaE oh, you did
22:34 Taoki [Mod] Structures [git] [minetest_mods_structures]
22:35 VanessaE the title of the first post for some reason didn't update, but the title of the thread did
22:35 Taoki Weird. But I guess that's the important one so
22:35 VanessaE you need to declare the license in the first post though
22:36 Taoki Uh... ok, I'll edit it (didn't do that for Creatures either BTW).
22:36 Taoki Will fix both
22:45 Taoki VanessaE: Done.
22:45 VanessaE I don't see any change in your post
22:46 Taoki Just edited the first post. I see them here
22:46 Taoki https://forum.minetest.net/view​topic.php?f=9&amp;t=5524#p82728
22:46 Taoki It's at the bottom
22:46 VanessaE OH I was looking at the wrong post
22:47 Taoki :)
22:47 VanessaE lgtm
22:47 VanessaE moved.
