06:30 Yst The wiki says "flowers:waterlily" is renewable, but I can't find any information on how to actually get more waterlilies. Does anyone here know how?
06:30 Yst I can't even see anything in the code that explains how; I must be looking in the wrong place.

07:13 ShadowBot paramat: O.K.
07:17 Yst joined #minetest
07:18 Yst Thanks paramat! I guess the wiki is wrong then. I should create an account and fix that.
07:20 Yst Never mind. There doesn't seem to be an option to register. I think it's one of those wikis only a select few are allowed to edit.
07:20 kaeza Yst, no, the registration process is kind of broken

07:42 JamesTait 👋 Morning, kaeza!
07:43 kaeza good I guess :)
07:43 kaeza how about you swift110?
07:50 Out`Of`Control Hi
07:50 Out`Of`Control is there simple way to disable node in default game?
07:54 kaeza Out`Of`Control, unregister_item ?
07:56 lumidify joined #minetest
07:56 kaeza you would create a mod that depends on the mod from the game, and unregister it
07:56 Out`Of`Control kaeza: uhm
07:56 Out`Of`Control ah
07:57 kaeza be aware that there's some stuff that may be used internally
07:57 kaeza or by mapgen
08:00 Out`Of`Control so with unregister_item i can remove default:coral_brow
08:00 swift110 im good
08:01 Yst joined #minetest
08:03 Out`Of`Control kaeza: where i can read about unregister_item
08:03 kaeza Out`Of`Control, lua_api.txt is always the definitive reference
08:03 Out`Of`Control thanks
08:05 Yst Thanks, kaeza!

13:13 DS-minetest you can use pin.a & co.
13:13 DS-minetest also there's a fpga
13:14 Allonphone joined #minetest
13:15 ThomasMonroe an FPGA works like that?
13:15 DS-minetest um
13:18 DS-minetest try it its selfexplaining
13:18 ThomasMonroe ok i will
13:25 DS-minetest are there any news about the daily ppa?
13:28 Tre how would you use the FPGA to activate certain gates in sequence
13:28 Allonphone joined #minetest
13:29 turtleman joined #minetest
13:30 DS-minetest save in the number values
13:30 Tre wiat ill try something
13:30 DS-minetest eg.
13:30 DS-minetest A and B 0
13:30 DS-minetest 0 and C D
13:31 DS-minetest but there's no interrupt
13:31 Tre right, but lets say i wanted to activate a piston sequence
13:31 Szkodnix joined #minetest
13:31 Tre how would i do that useing this
13:31 Tre im trying to make a block swapper
13:32 DS-minetest u can still use luacontroller for complex things
13:33 Tre i know, but it would still be much easier to have something that carries out a set of instructions with interups in bewtween each line
13:34 DS-minetest use more than one fpga?
13:34 DS-minetest and delayer
13:34 Tre i want it to be compact enough to fit on a roof of a small house
13:36 DS-minetest i don't think, i can help u via chat
13:36 Tre np, didnt think anyone could, i was just wondering if the idea would be able to take root
13:37 Tre and maybe it will
13:38 Tre i was talking about something like a sequential microcontroller
13:38 Allonphone joined #minetest
13:39 DS-minetest microcontrollers r outdated
13:40 Tre nah they can be used for many useful things
13:40 Tre i like using them
13:41 Tre they are simple and easy to understand, not that i dont understand lua
13:41 DS-minetest yeah, but i read something about that i think
13:41 Tre maybe its time to upgrade them
13:42 Allonphone joined #minetest

13:57 DS-minetest I found out something interesting about nuclear reactors
13:58 DS-minetest if it's already long on, it takes long till meltdown
13:58 DS-minetest if it's a fresh one, its much faster

14:16 Tre how would a block swapper be made in Minetest?
14:17 DS-minetest im not sure what u mean with block swapper
14:18 DS-minetest in technic is a constructor if you mean this
14:19 Tre http://redstonecircuits.blogspot​.com/2013/04/block-swapper.html
14:22 DS-minetest looks interesting and not too difficult to do with luacontroller
14:22 Tre i know, but i am working with an old version of mesecons on this server
14:22 Tre oldeer*
14:23 DS-minetest bff why?
14:23 DS-minetest and soo old is extrem
14:23 DS-minetest luacontroller is already there since ages
14:23 Tre i am waiting for the developer to update the server
14:24 DS-minetest what server is it?
14:24 Tre i know that but the interupts wernt
14:24 Tre and definitly not event.iid
14:26 DS-minetest but its much older than fpga
14:28 troller joined #minetest
14:33 Tre true
14:33 DS-minetest shall settingtypes.txt files be in modpack folders?
14:40 Tre someone needs to make a redstone clone
14:41 Tre there anrt enoughe tutorials about mesecons, and it cant do everything that redstone can
14:41 DS-minetest it can
14:41 DS-minetest tell me one thing, it cant
14:42 Blaxono Hey :)
14:42 Blaxono im Moderator of Telsight,s Skywars Server
14:44 Tre block swapper using only torches and repeaters
14:45 DS-minetest lol, mesecons has no repeaters
14:46 Tre excatly my point, mesecons is great, but it has it limits when it comes to translating restone projects into it
14:46 Tre repeaters also double as delayers in redstone
14:48 DS-minetest not exactly
14:48 Tre what do you mean
14:48 DS-minetest repeaters can do somthing else if they point to another node
14:49 DS-minetest but a redstone clone would be nice for Wuzzy's subgame
14:49 Tre right if we have a redstone clone we can take projects directly from minecraft and trasnlate them into minetest
14:50 Tre who is Wuzzy?
14:50 Wuzzy It's me!
14:50 Tre hi Wuzzy
14:50 DS-minetest sry for writing ur name >_<
14:50 Wuzzy It's someone who made WAY too many mods for Minetest
14:50 Tre shoulda looked for you on the user list
14:50 Tre haha
14:51 twoelk joined #minetest
14:52 * DS-minetest has finished the self destruction
14:52 Tre hehe
14:53 DS-minetest of technic nuce reactor
14:53 DS-minetest and pushed
14:54 The_Loko joined #minetest
14:54 DS-minetest u cant stop the countdown
14:54 DS-minetest but theres a setting
14:54 nore ^ mesecons had delayers which are more-or-less the repeaters of MC
14:55 twoelk Tre, you could make a forum post that points to some redstone contraption and challenge the mt comunity to rebuild it with mesecons, simplemachines or whatever other mod fits
14:55 DS-minetest but not exactly
14:55 Tre i dont have an account
14:55 DS-minetest make one
14:55 Tre i will
14:57 nore warning: there are people who use mesecons because they are actually crazy (i.e. me)
14:58 nore and that will build gigantic mesecons machines :)
14:58 DS-minetest lol
14:58 DS-minetest http://mesecons.net/
14:58 * DS-minetest did that too but not only with mesecons. but mostly it doesnt work );
14:58 DS-minetest because its limited

14:59 ^7heo So now it's possible to actually beta test your home automation in minecraft.
14:59 ^7heo s/craft/test/
15:00 ^7heo and synchronize your IRL coffee machine with a button in minetest.
15:00 ^7heo interesting
15:00 DS-minetest this is already possible for long time
15:00 DS-minetest jeija did it already
15:02 DS-minetest but it's dangerous
15:02 DS-minetest https://forum.minetest.net/v​iewtopic.php?f=3&amp;t=5285
15:04 Tre hey nore, how ould you create a block swaper
15:05 nore heh, easy enough :)
15:05 Tre without lua controllers
15:05 DS-minetest https://forum.minetest.net/v​iewtopic.php?f=3&amp;t=5369
15:05 nore I just need some time, since it is taken by other projects as well ^^
15:06 DS-minetest still ez without luacontroller
15:06 Tre hey nore what do you think about a controller that activates ports in succession according to a set of instrucions
15:07 nore you mean like this? https://forum.minetest.net/v​iewtopic.php?p=83243#p83243

15:54 DS-minetest idk, how this swapper in mc works. Tre
15:55 DS-minetest how should it?!
15:55 Tre idk
15:57 DS-minetest i hate that googeled youtube
15:57 ^7heo wat?

16:19 DS-minetest but it's very slow
16:19 DS-minetest because it uses water turbines :3

16:20 DS-minetest hi fireglow
16:20 DS-minetest so, normal button is too fast

16:23 DS-minetest im making it faster
16:24 Tre ok
16:27 DS-minetest oh, ive learned something new about mesecon torches
16:28 fireglow what?
16:28 DS-minetest they also go off if theres a signal on top of the node behind
16:29 DS-minetest but now i have to use not gates );

18:02 Mator_ does someone know of a good way to make a recursive algorithm point-driven?
18:02 Mator_ I have an algorithm which takes a coordinate and a size, and then recursively divides space and generates a structure
18:03 Mator_ this is inherently incompatible with chunk generation
18:03 twoelk sounds like menger cube
18:04 Mator_ already got menger sponge working with a point-test function
18:04 Mator_ what I'm thinking of right now is more like a dodecahedron fractal, or something similar

22:19 ThomasMonroe would it be usefull to have pistons recieve from a range of 2 blocks?
22:20 Mator_ it would be useful to have a power element which can power a larger range of blocks
22:20 Mator_ but I wouldn't make a specific block recieve power from a larger range
22:23 ThomasMonroe i meant like if you have pistons stacked ontop of one anther you could fire them both with one wire
22:25 ThomasMonroe the power element would be nice
22:25 Mator_ I feel like firing a piston on a piston is a recipe for bugs
22:25 Mator_ :P
22:26 Mator_ but sure, it could be cool
22:26 Mator_ maybe what you want is to make it so a piston conducts charge
22:26 ThomasMonroe i was thinking of a 2x2 or 2x1 door that is very compact
22:26 Mator_ sure
22:27 ThomasMonroe wel that would work, but you might need two more type of pistons
22:27 ThomasMonroe bcs that might bcm annoying

22:45 kaeza I'd like wireless mesecons myself :P (does that even make sense?)
22:45 ThomasMonroe kind of
22:56 Viper wireless wire?
22:56 Viper wired wifi
23:02 twoelk mesewificon?
23:03 twoelk sounds like vapourware ;-P
23:03 Mator_ ThomasMonroe two more?  Wouldn't you just need one?  "Conducting piston" ?
23:05 ThomasMonroe bcs if you had say two pistons side by side and you wanted them to fire at different times, you cant bcs one piston would fire off the other
23:05 twoelk an orchestra of mesecons conducted by a piston?
23:05 Mator_ What is "mesecon"?
23:05 kaeza redstone
23:06 Mator_ huh
23:06 Mator_ why the weird name?
23:06 kaeza because it's MESE CONductor I guess?
23:06 twoelk because copyright?
23:07 Mator_ Thomas: The "conducting piston" would only charge whatever is past the piston "plate" when it is extended
23:07 Mator_ What is MESE?
23:07 Mator_ And I totally get why it can't be "redstone"
23:07 twoelk do you play minetest?
23:07 kaeza !wiki Mese
23:07 MinetestBot "The Mese Block (pronounciation: [ˈmɛˌsɛ]) is the rarest ore and the third rarest block in Minetest Game and starts appearing very deep underground, at a height of Y=-1024 or below." - http://wiki.minetest.net/Mese
23:07 kaeza Mator_, ^
23:08 kaeza that texture needs an update
23:08 Mator_ just a weird name
23:08 Mator_ twoelk
23:08 Mator_ No, I just found out about Minetest like two days ago
23:08 kaeza >Mese actually means "msn messenger" in Finland and is used as a silly word (it sounds silly) in the ohjelmointiputka programming community. Additionally it is thought that the glasses of the emoticons 8) and 8D are "mese glasses".
23:09 Mator_ And I've been focusing on modding
23:09 Mator_ kaeza: Hm
23:11 kaeza it used to be sort of "diamonds" until actual diamonds were added
23:11 kaeza as in, the strongest metal in the MT world
23:12 kaeza !wiki Nyancat
23:12 MinetestBot "Nyan Cats are humorous blocks which are extremely rare." - http://wiki.minetest.net/Nyancat
23:12 kaeza sadly not anymore :/
23:12 ThomasMonroe what is nyan cat from anyway?
23:12 kaeza RIP
23:12 fireglow I have nyancat.zip
23:13 Mator_ kaeza Silver, Gold, copper, nickel, iron, platinum, zinc and aluminum have electrical conductivity
23:13 fireglow forever nyancat.zip
23:13 Mator_ replace Mese with one of these metals for #realism points :P
23:13 rubenwardy ThomasMonroe: the internet
23:13 ThomasMonroe ha..ha..ha..ha
23:13 Mator_ http://www.nyan.cat/
23:13 ThomasMonroe -.-
23:14 Mator_ http://knowyourmeme.com/me​mes/nyan-cat-pop-tart-cat
23:14 ThomasMonroe so it is an internet meme
23:15 kaeza Mator_, we have gold and copper in default game now. also, iron is added by technic (replaces steel with wrought iron and adds more varieties). silver (and mithril) is added by moreores
23:15 kaeza technic also has zinc and aluminum
23:15 kaeza I don't recall if platinum or nickel exists anywhere :P
23:15 Mator_ kaeza: Let's make those into wires then and remove mese :P
23:16 Mator_ lul, that reminded me of anther meme, "Remove enderman" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtUxgOfN00A
23:16 twoelk Mator_, do visit some technic heavy servers like VanessaE's creative or survival and study those complicated contraptions like those of cheapie or nore and many others
23:17 ThomasMonroe gtg guys cya later tonight
23:17 ThomasMonroe left #minetest
23:17 Mator_ twoelk okey
23:17 cheapie Mator_, twoelk: https://cheapiesystems.com/media/im​ages/screenshot_20170319_012540.png
23:18 cheapie If that's not technic-heavy, I don't know what is :P
23:18 twoelk if there is nothing unique anymore to minetest and it becomes totally realistic - I guess I can just as well walk of the door and enjoy real life :-D
23:19 cheapie twoelk: Well, you don't find depleted uranium buildings IRL, typically: https://cheapiesystems.com/media/im​ages/screenshot_20170324_020528.png
23:19 kaeza wut
23:19 twoelk ah the room I can only survive a tiny while in a hazmat suite?
23:20 cheapie This is more realistic, at least: https://cheapiesystems.com/media/im​ages/screenshot_20170212_134253.png
23:21 * twoelk wonders when VEC gets its central control room like in the film <Westworld>
23:22 cheapie Heck, that server even has the one intersection (like most RL cities) that nobody dares try to drive through: https://cheapiesystems.com/media/im​ages/screenshot_20170404_182203.png
23:23 twoelk hehe - I keep holding up the traffic trying to read all them signs
23:23 * cheapie needs to update his client to fix those upside-down letters
23:24 twoelk where can I see what them cameras record? :-D

23:42 cheapie As an example use case, say you want a detector tube. That's a white tube with a yellow band.
