01:28 cimbakahn How is this guy doing this ----> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9Am04BT5Dg    Is it a mod?
01:29 H-H-H yes
01:34 LazyJ joined #minetest
01:43 cimbakahn H-H-H: Sorry!  I didn't know anyone got back to me.  Do you know the name of the mod?
01:43 H-H-H no i dont would be interesting to find out
01:45 cimbakahn It ticks me off that he doesn't give out any information on it.
01:47 H-H-H yeah i watched it to the end in the hope something was put on screen like a github url or something but nope
01:50 cimbakahn I thought it had something to do with the snowball, but i noticed several times he did it with no snowball in his hand.
01:52 H-H-H yes he seemed to be just punching the snow sometimes
01:53 cimbakahn I was doing google searches like /remove snow snowball minetest/ and didn't find anything.
01:54 H-H-H possibly its something they deved for thier own use
01:54 H-H-H never released it
01:54 cimbakahn Now i am trying /mod remove snow/ .
01:54 cimbakahn That is always possible.
01:55 cimbakahn I have a big problem with snow in the game.  There is too much of it.
01:55 H-H-H or it could be a client mod but still a mod and if nothings coming up in searches then still not released
01:56 rubenwardy You can remove snow from mapgens be deleting register_biome calls in default/mapgen.lua which mention snow
01:56 rubenwardy (in response to question yesterday)
01:56 H-H-H wouldnt that delete all snow though
01:56 rubenwardy You could also edit the mapgen_snow aliases at the top of that file, and set them to their grass equiv
01:56 cimbakahn I wanted to get rid of it, but did not want to get rid of it 100%.  I wanted to get rid of it ny 75%.
01:57 rubenwardy Yes, but http://irc.minetest.ru/min​etest/2016-04-29#i_4597216
01:57 rubenwardy To partially remove it from mapgen, I guess you need to fiddle with biome rarity
01:57 rubenwardy I have no idea how that works, never explored that area
01:58 cimbakahn I wonder if i can alias it to dirt_with_grass, and then i'll have more greenery?  But if i did that, there would be no snow in the game at all?  Am i correct in what i'm assuming here?
01:58 rubenwardy true
01:58 rubenwardy no snow in mapgen
01:59 Yst joined #minetest
01:59 rubenwardy if you alais mapgen_snow -> dirt_with_gras
01:59 rubenwardy map gen doesn't use default:snow, it uses mapgen_snow
01:59 rubenwardy by default mapgen_snow points to default:snow
01:59 rubenwardy Haven't checked this, but I assume it's consistent with eg mapgen_water
02:01 cimbakahn That is strange.
02:02 rubenwardy by changing mapgen_snow instead of default:snow, you'll still be able to place snow, it just won't be generated by mapgen
02:02 cimbakahn I would rather have that mod that guy is using in the video.
02:02 rubenwardy yeah
02:02 rubenwardy I don't know the context of this
02:03 cimbakahn I know there are mods that most people haven't heard of before.  I come across some of them today.
02:03 yang2003 joined #minetest
02:04 H-H-H might be worth an email to the guy that made the vid ?
02:04 cimbakahn If i can find an email on him.
02:05 cimbakahn Here is the mods i was just speaking about ----> http://donbatman.github.io/mymods.html
02:05 H-H-H i wouldnt expect a yeah sure kind of reaction though as i suspect it is kept private due to its grief potential lol , i might be wrong though :)
02:07 superfly joined #minetest
02:07 cimbakahn You should be able to use something like that on singleplayer creative though.
02:08 H-H-H am i right in thinking that you cant dynamicaly load content into minetest?
02:08 H-H-H it all is loaded from mods on start up?
02:09 rubenwardy true
02:09 rubenwardy although it depends on what you mean by content
02:09 cimbakahn You are probably correct.
02:09 rubenwardy eg: Lua scripts can be loaded dynamically
02:09 rubenwardy but you can't change any nodes
02:09 rubenwardy or textures
02:09 rubenwardy etc
02:09 rubenwardy to unregister them
02:09 rubenwardy after loading, that is
02:10 H-H-H i was thinking some kind of terminal inworld that could interact with the outside like a webserver for example
02:10 rubenwardy That is possible
02:10 H-H-H think opencomputers in minecraft
02:10 rubenwardy using the http API
02:10 rubenwardy however, true terminals aren't possible
02:10 rubenwardy as in, you can't stream input
02:10 rubenwardy you can only submit lines on enter
02:11 H-H-H could send button presses for example though ?
02:11 rubenwardy yeah, you can send button presses
02:11 H-H-H from a formspec i mean
02:11 cimbakahn I saw something today... Give me a sec.  I might be able to find it.
02:12 H-H-H and could you alter the formspec according to data recieved?
02:12 rubenwardy yes
02:12 rubenwardy formspecs are not registered
02:12 rubenwardy they're sent dynamically
02:13 H-H-H ahhh interesting i will have to look into the http api then thanks :)
02:13 cimbakahn What about this ----> https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=2777
02:14 cimbakahn Could you put in the name of the snow to get rid of it?
02:14 Hirato joined #minetest
02:15 H-H-H in theory yes you could
02:15 H-H-H but that would delete all snow
02:17 cimbakahn Shucks!
02:18 cimbakahn I need a few snowy areas for the Yeti.
02:20 cimbakahn Here is another mod page i come across today that i never saw before ----> https://illuna-minetest.tk/en/mods
02:21 H-H-H awesome mods there lol just found this https://forum.minetest.net/v​iewtopic.php?f=9&t=13138
02:22 H-H-H anyways time for my bed lol gnight and good luck
02:22 cimbakahn I saw that mod before.
02:22 cimbakahn Thank you!  Good night!

02:34 DonBatman *anyone
02:34 cimbakahn Well, hello!
02:35 cimbakahn I wanted this mod here because i am always having problems with snow in my singleplayer worlds.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9Am04BT5Dg
02:37 DonBatman I don't know that mod
02:38 DonBatman The only mod I have that deals with snow is mymonths but it is still wip
02:39 cimbakahn I thought you were the person that created it?
02:39 DonBatman It was not me. I read through some of the suggestions though. They are good suggestions
02:40 LazyJ In the background of the video it looks like Sokomine's pre-made villages mod and the autumn leaves in the trees suggest her "More Snow" mod.
02:40 LazyJ As for the removal of large areas of snow, that I don't know about.
02:40 cimbakahn Yes.  It does look likemg_villages.
02:41 DonBatman Sokomine might be the person to talk to then
02:41 cimbakahn That is what i want, to be able to remove large areas of snow.
02:41 LazyJ Log into that server and type    /mods      to display the list of mods installed.
02:41 cimbakahn Which sevber?
02:41 cimbakahn server
02:41 LazyJ Whichever one the video was made  from.
02:42 GunshipPenguin joined #minetest
02:42 LazyJ If you didn't make the video, then the question is stuck for the moment.
02:42 cimbakahn I don't know if it is on a server or a singleplayer world.  I will look at the video again.
02:42 DonBatman Sokomine is on this channel so maybe wait to see if she answers here
02:43 flapjack joined #minetest
02:43 LazyJ We've mentioned Sokomine's name a few times. Maybe if we set out a plate of fresh baked cookies as bait? ;)-
02:43 flapjack im twerking rn
02:44 DonBatman Then stop and seek professional help flapjack
02:44 cimbakahn I looked at the top of the video.  I don't see anything to suggest that they are on a server.
02:45 cimbakahn Remember people can get mg_villages for their singleplayer world as well.
02:48 Hirato jack those flaps
02:48 LazyJ Not enough info to go on then. The video may be a demonstration of the mod by its author but the author didn't provide any way for others to find the mod. The only other thing I can think of is posting in the vidoe's comment section a request for a link to the mod.
02:49 preston joined #minetest
02:49 cimbakahn Yes.  I could try that.
02:49 DonBatman Also, that snow might not be default snow
02:49 preston flapjack is mine
02:49 flapjack im twerking rn
02:49 DonBatman Then stop and seek professional help flapjack
02:49 preston yeah flapjack
02:49 cimbakahn Does Sokomine have a public minetest server?
02:49 flapjack im twerking rn
02:50 preston stfu
02:50 Hirato hmmm
02:50 Hirato Sokomine
02:50 flapjack im twerking rn
02:50 flapjack was kicked by ShadowBot: Message repetition flood detected.
02:50 Hirato lol
02:51 preston damn
02:52 Hirato reminds me of the first time I got a flood warning; I was playing an MMORPG and killing things in a sewer, I thought it was a warning that the sewer was going to flood
02:53 cimbakahn HAHAHA!
02:57 flapjack joined #minetest
02:59 preston flapjack is back
02:59 flapjack hi
03:04 Hirato is there a release due sometime?
03:05 preston i hope
03:05 preston its been months
03:05 flapjack joined #minetest
03:07 preston was it august that was last release or something
03:07 preston yea
03:08 BrandonReese I think it's in feature freeze so they should be finishing up
03:08 preston oh shit lol
03:08 flapjack stop swearing, my moms watching!
03:08 preston sry
03:09 Hirato that just makes me want to swear more
03:09 Hirato I swear on me mum
03:09 preston this release better have a lot of crap done cuz its been a while
03:11 serp Pickle you kumquat... dirty lint licker
03:11 Hirato I just think it's strange that no one's been updating the changelog in the wiki
03:11 preston cuz the devs went lazy
03:11 preston i wouldnt be motivated to work on an old minecraft clone written with a bad 3d engine lol
03:14 BrandonReese You can see all the changes on github https://github.com/minetes​t/minetest/commits/master
03:15 Hirato but that doesn't summarise it nicely at all
04:05 sofar tbh, anyone in here could submit an updated changelog
04:05 sofar so let the devs do the hard work, like fixing bugs, and help them out?
04:11 Wayward_One Heh, I wouldn't be motivated to *play* an old minecraft clone written with a bad 3d engine
04:12 Wayward_One that's why I play Minetest :)

10:42 paramat ~tell cimbakahn you can reduce the size of the snow biomes. in mgv6 use a custom noise for biome noise (= temperature): 'mgv6_np_biome = 0, 1, (500, 500, 500), 9130, 3, 0.50, 2.0' in .conf file, with the first number (average temperature, currently 0) increased towards 1.0. will only affect a newly started world
10:42 ShadowBot paramat: O.K.
10:45 MillersMan joined #minetest
10:50 paramat ~tell cimbakahn in all other mapgens increase temperature with 'mg_biome_np_heat = 50, 50, (750, 750, 750), 5349, 3, 0.5, 2.0' and increase the first number gradually towards 100

12:27 tpe Is this a known bug? http://i.imgur.com/ROMUOih.jpg Large lighting glitches around most of the bigger auto-generated trees. Using VanessaE's Dreambuilder mod pack.
12:28 paramat yes known bug with l-system trees
12:28 paramat it happens in mgv6 too but is more subtle
12:29 paramat see https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/3421
12:29 tpe Yeah, tested this in both v7 and fractal, same thing.
12:31 paramat unfortunately when l-system was added the lighting bug was either missed or not occurring for some reason. the advice is not to use it
12:32 paramat but popular mods do use it
12:33 paramat plantlife mod might be okay, anything that doesn't use l-system
12:34 tpe At least it's known. Unfortunately (probably like most here) I'm no dev so I can't help.
12:35 paramat testing our stuff is helpful

12:46 fkeloks Hi
12:46 fkeloks how to add color to a text displayed via a "minetest.chat_send_all ()" ?
12:46 fkeloks In Lua :)
12:46 DMackey joined #minetest
12:48 fkeloks There are no developers here ???
12:49 VanessaE be patient
12:50 fkeloks Too bad for me because I'm not patient :) France will not wait! : D
12:53 fkeloks 9 am? Ah yes! I forgot the time difference: D For me, it's 2:53 p.m.
12:54 Amaz fkeloks, it's not possible currently.
12:55 fkeloks For color?
12:55 rubenwardy joined #minetest
12:55 Amaz Yeah
12:56 Amaz Hopefully it will be possible in the future...
12:56 fkeloks Oh my, what a pity ... Is has it not an alternative solution? A workaround?
12:59 Amaz Not really... You could display a HUD with the message you want to send somewhere on the screen.
13:01 fkeloks Yeah I know but then it will not be nice at all ... In fact I am looking to create a mod that "redone own" chat game, notament by color
13:02 Amaz Would something like this work? https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?t=8509
