02:11 VanessaE rubenwardy: outdated
02:12 rubenwardy you should remove the source repo link, and/or delete the package
02:12 VanessaE it's dreambuilder_game now, new repo.  Already created a new package on contentdb, and posted instructions on the forum on how to update.
02:12 VanessaE no need, I just deleted the old contentdb package :)
02:13 VanessaE meanwhile, https://content.minetest.net/packages/VanessaE/signs_lib/  can you check your logs?  I think I did the webhook wrong for this one.
02:13 VanessaE (I pushed a new tag today and it didn't generate a new release)
02:15 VanessaE (also I'm half asleep, sorry if I'm missing details or being repetitive)
02:17 VanessaE oh.
02:18 VanessaE see msg
03:08 * VanessaE wanders off to bed
03:09 VanessaE I'm tired, but happy I got something done for a change, so it's good tired :)

05:51 Conradish006 joined #minetest-hub
06:52 BuckarooBanzai VanessaE: the last sentence in the "dreambuilder_game" is cut off i think: "For best results, I recommend adding the following to your minetest.conf (...):" nothing more after that :P
06:53 BuckarooBanzai (i think thats a contentdb limitation)
07:04 VanessaE fixed.
07:09 VanessaE there is a limit of 10000 chars for the description but in this case it was an error on my part.
07:10 VanessaE trimmed it down, and also fixed a couple other issues I didn't spot before.

09:54 TenPlus1 hi folks
09:54 MTDiscord <lordfingle> hi
09:54 TenPlus1 hi lordfingle :) how's you ?
09:55 MTDiscord <lordfingle> hi tenplus1, I's good.  Like what you guys have done with the place
09:55 TenPlus1 place ? irc or xanadu ?
09:56 MTDiscord <lordfingle> place = minetest, mods in general, contentdb, discord...
09:56 TenPlus1 ahh, yeah it's come a long way :) lots of nice features and mods out there now
09:56 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I'm having to relearn - particularly about client mods - lots to do there
09:57 TenPlus1 never really use client mods here
09:57 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Do they download automatically yet?  Possibly not.  Thought they'd be useful for mobs
09:57 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Right now I'm creating a minetest version of "Anything Gallery"
09:58 TenPlus1 any mods posted on contentdb will download in minetest client itself using the content tab :)
09:58 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I know.  What I meant was server mods that have a client mod element, as per the orginial plan on the minetest wiki
09:59 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I know about the hud changers and the rest.  Not that interesting to me
09:59 TenPlus1 gotta look into server client side mods myself, been putting it off for too long :D
10:01 MTDiscord <lordfingle> You have created/redone a ridiculous number of mods in the last few years
10:02 TenPlus1 is a good hobby to have :)
10:02 TenPlus1 updated mobs_monster and added some new textures and types of mob determined on_spawn :D that was fun
10:03 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I will certainly have a play - although my interests lie in npcs this time round
10:03 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I just wanna have a wee chat with my mobs
10:03 TenPlus1 might look into those next, mobs_npc needs some tweaking :D
10:05 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Last year I played around in minecraft mod land a bit.  It's so painful compared to minetest (and yes I know mt can be painful)
10:06 TenPlus1 yeah I tried mc at one time, my pc almost had a heart attack trying to run it :D mt was definitely the way to go
10:06 MTDiscord <lordfingle> mt is made for it, that's what I love
10:07 TenPlus1 love how easy it is to create mods :) more schools should be using this to teach coding
10:07 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I want to make the chatting to mobs experience as nice as possible.  I'll start with mobs_npc
10:07 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I was using it to teach at CoderDojo for a while
10:07 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Straightforward
10:08 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I suspect MinecraftEducation or whatever it is may be easier - that's not part of the main game though really
10:08 TenPlus1 got my nephew a raspberri pi400 to play with, he's loving it
10:08 MTDiscord <lordfingle> neat
10:08 TenPlus1 his own tiny computer, but good specs :)
10:09 calcul0n_ joined #minetest-hub
10:09 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Sorry, are you saying mt  will actually run on that?
10:10 TenPlus1 oh yes, raspberri pi 3 and 4 can run mt no problem
10:10 TenPlus1 hosting a server though is another matter :) local 2-3 players maybe
10:10 MTDiscord <lordfingle> That's cool.  I might bring out the pi in a few months for fun
10:11 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I've actually experimented/researched quite a few game engines....but mt still feels like home to me.  Looks like it's going to be my crazy idea playground for the next year
10:11 MTDiscord <lordfingle> 👍
10:12 TenPlus1 sweet, looks like irrlicht is already forked for use with minetest, so lots of bugs and features will be added to that as well
10:12 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Does anyone actually know irrlicht?  That'd be awesome.
10:13 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I know it's sacrilege but I care nothing for minetest style block-land.  I like my pretty shaders and graphics
10:13 TenPlus1 super tux cart uses the fork and has many features added :) so who knows what might be possible
10:14 MTDiscord <lordfingle> oh wow
10:15 TenPlus1 the love2d addon for lua also lets you create 2d games, retro style :) lua is pretty good I think
10:16 MTDiscord <lordfingle> I like lua.  Tried using a love2d mapgen but at the time the lua version was too different.  May be better now.
10:16 MTDiscord <lordfingle> Nice catching up with you tp.  Talk l8r
10:16 TenPlus1 take care dude :)
10:17 MTDiscord <lordfingle> 👍
10:35 MTDiscord <IhrFussel> Server-sent client mods don't exist yet
10:36 TenPlus1 hi fussel :)
10:36 MTDiscord <IhrFussel> Hi there^^
10:43 TenPlus1 hrm, I wonder if it's possible to run a local csm that checks for a global table of functions that could be filled server side to run :)
11:01 TenPlus1 wwar: you around ?
11:07 Rafi59 Hi :)
11:07 TenPlus1 hey Rafi
11:07 TenPlus1 how's the day ?
11:09 Rafi59 fine and you ?
11:09 TenPlus1 not bad thx, mod tinkering again :D

11:13 TenPlus1 hi xerox, how ya doing ?
11:13 xerox123 gud gud
11:13 xerox123 hows you
11:14 TenPlus1 day off so chilling and tinkering with mods... added a few new features to mobs_monster
11:32 MTDiscord joined #minetest-hub
11:32 TenPlus1 hrm
11:36 Conradish006 joined #minetest-hub
12:15 Rafi59 Is it possible to send http POST request json encoded with minetest.request_http_api ? I have tried to send a table as data but I get 415 Unsupported Media Type
12:16 sfan5 of course
12:16 sfan5 you just need to encode the json as a string first, the engine can't read your mind
12:16 sfan5 minetest.write_json for that
12:26 Rafi59 ok, thanks
12:35 Fixer joined #minetest-hub
12:35 TenPlus1 o/ fixer
12:53 Fixer \o
12:54 TenPlus1 :)
13:38 TenPlus1 is there something up with the forums today ?
13:54 rubenwardy the forums have been broken for the last few years, it's not new
13:55 TenPlus1 hi ruben, just wondering why it works fine then slows right down
14:24 BuckarooBanzai Rafi59: don't forget the "Content-Type" header ;)
14:25 T4im joined #minetest-hub
14:38 Conradish006 joined #minetest-hub
14:46 Rafi59 I don't forgot it :) I have successfully sent the connected players list
14:55 Fixer that feel when you read your own 5 year old posts and thinking to myself... that dude was so smart... how he even wrote that thing...
14:55 TenPlus1 lol
14:59 TenPlus1 Mobs Monsters has been updated if anyone is interester :) new spider types and land guards added
16:43 TWOELK joined #minetest-hub
16:44 TenPlus1 hi twoelk :)
16:44 TWOELK hi
16:44 TenPlus1 o/
16:44 TWOELK o/  indeed
16:45 TenPlus1 heh, how's things with you ?
16:46 TWOELK fine I guess, lots of work so that's probably good - though less playtime
16:46 TenPlus1 keeps you busy :)
16:46 TenPlus1 always nice to have a distraction with what's going on lately :D
16:46 TWOELK duh, now why is my nick all caps?
16:48 TenPlus1 magic!
16:49 TWOELK strange things a'happenin'
16:53 twoelk hm
16:53 TenPlus1 the spell has worn off
16:54 twoelk wonder what button trigered that in the first place
16:54 twoelk so, any other windows users around?
16:55 TenPlus1 *shudder*
16:56 twoelk I wanted to suggest mt to a relative but the modshop seems to not work with windows
16:56 * twoelk didn't notice that before
16:56 TenPlus1 ouch, the content tab is a good feature as well
16:57 erstazi joined #minetest-hub
16:57 TenPlus1 hi erstazi
16:58 twoelk well the content tab seems to work but trying to connect to the online database throughs an error
16:59 twoelk -attempt to compare number with nil-
16:59 TenPlus1 isnt the get_player_information is it ?
17:01 twoelk probably not
17:04 twoelk https://pastebin.com/xHNed15w
17:06 TenPlus1 mod.release, I think that was fixed in latest dev
17:06 twoelk will test
17:07 TenPlus1 I remember reading something about mod version issue
17:17 twoelk seems to work
17:17 TenPlus1 kewl :)
17:18 twoelk oh, the flowercow pulled in the depencies mobs and mobs_animal  cool
17:18 TenPlus1 when I go to update server I'm gonna skip 5.4 stable for 5.5 dev I think
17:18 TenPlus1 mobs monster has been updated, got some new ones
17:21 MTDiscord <wwar> Hello there
17:21 twoelk ok, now to migrate some stuff over from 5.4 stable
17:21 TenPlus1 hey wwar, how's things dude ?
17:22 MTDiscord <wwar> Things good, tried the explode things in mobs_redo
17:22 MTDiscord <wwar> You?
17:22 TenPlus1 been working on monsters, uplaoded latest version, has many changes inspired from the version u sent me
17:23 MTDiscord <wwar> Cool :D
17:23 MTDiscord <wwar> Can you add explosion_damage btw?
17:23 TenPlus1 one spider mob, but has different types depending where it spawns, inc. web spitting and tiny cave spider
17:24 TenPlus1 and new land guard to cover dungeon master style mob but for cold, desert areas
17:24 MTDiscord <wwar> I made a guy that explodes
17:25 TenPlus1 was thinking of adding a tree creeper using the existing creeper texture, just wondering where to spawn that fits into worlds
17:25 MTDiscord <wwar> Dungeon master, that explodes on_die and summons a smaller one that explodes aswell
17:25 twoelk tiny spiders? like hard to hit tiny?  eek
17:25 MTDiscord <wwar> yup :)
17:26 TenPlus1 yeah twoelk, if a spider spawns in a cave then it's 1/4 size and can climb to get you and jump attack, scarey little bugger
17:26 MTDiscord <wwar> I made them spawn on cobweb and the normal one places cobweb, idk how Ten added it tho
17:26 TenPlus1 I changed a lot of things, isntead of adding all new mobs the new features depend on where current ones spawn :D
17:27 MTDiscord <wwar> Sure sure, its cool to add some tho
17:27 MTDiscord <wwar> Wanna try the exploding one?
17:27 TenPlus1 am gonna make one of the tree monster variants a creeper one, working on spawns tho
17:28 twoelk maybe treemonsters that protect tasty fruit trees
17:28 MTDiscord <wwar> btw, how do you make a mob spawns more than one mob on_die?
17:29 twoelk tree monsters that punish people leaving floating trees would be cool
17:30 MTDiscord <wwar> Nah, a bot that instantly bans who leaves them floating :P
17:31 TenPlus1 on_die = function(self, pos) ; minetest.add_entity(pos, "mod:mymod") ; self.entity:remove() ; end
17:31 MTDiscord <wwar> I did that
17:31 MTDiscord <wwar> I mean more than 1
17:31 TenPlus1 ooh since I have tree monsters spawning on all group:leaves it covers bushes as well :) can have creepers spawn on a bush
17:31 twoelk I wonder if it could be made that when a trunk below another is hacked after a while mad tree spiders spill out of the exposed newly cut section
17:34 Conradish006 joined #minetest-hub
17:35 TenPlus1 that sounds entirely evil :D
17:37 twoelk might involve a lot of ifs so that this doesn't happen at the wrong place or time
17:38 TenPlus1 testing exploding tree monster :DDD
17:38 twoelk sigh, so destructiv
17:38 TenPlus1 lol
17:39 MTDiscord <wwar> Ten.. i made an exploding guy.. wanna try him?
17:39 twoelk why not have mobs build something?
17:39 MTDiscord <wwar> That will need mobs_griefing = true
17:39 twoelk like spiders blocking doors with cobwebs
17:40 MTDiscord <wwar> And most servers doesnt allow that
17:40 twoelk and then waiting for me to try and get out
17:40 TenPlus1 that's ok, if mobs griefing isnt active then it does a safe_boom which only harms entities around it
17:40 MTDiscord <wwar> noobs_griefing setting is more needed that mobs_griefing tho
17:45 twoelk hm, mobs doesn't have a screenshot, maybe we should have a general api-icon
17:45 TenPlus1 I uplaoded one to contentdb earlier, can just use that maybe
17:46 MTDiscord <wwar> I made a damage sound for stone guy
17:47 MTDiscord <wwar> And now he turns to a magma one on_die
17:47 MTDiscord <wwar> With a special sound
17:48 twoelk lol, if I add my own mods the content-store breaks again it seems
17:50 TenPlus1 okies, if tree monster spawns on top of acacia bush then it becomes a creeper
17:50 TenPlus1 shoult I add this to mobs_monster ?
17:50 twoelk great, it's my more flowers mod, just the one I wanted to test
17:53 TenPlus1 and they runaway from kittens :D hahaha
17:54 twoelk rofl-- 'duno' is not accepted as release info in the modpack.conf
17:54 TenPlus1 hahaha
17:55 * twoelk is now testing how flowers spread and take over a new world
17:55 TenPlus1 heh nice
17:55 MTDiscord <wwar> So this one will be like the Bombastic one that occurs on lb?
17:55 TenPlus1 wwar, shoudl I make it a 1 in 2 chance of spawning a Tree Creeper to limit damage ?
17:56 TenPlus1 oh yes, this one go boom, but runs away form kittens cause its scared :D
17:56 TenPlus1 we have 6 tree monster variants now
17:56 MTDiscord <wwar> well, if you gonna add a chance for him
17:56 twoelk hopefully it replants any plants that get destroyed
17:56 MTDiscord <wwar> Make it less than 1/2
17:56 TenPlus1 sadly no, but blown up players automatically become mulch :D
17:57 MTDiscord <wwar> Can you add explosion_damage?
17:57 TenPlus1 yeah that's done, is set to 3
17:57 TenPlus1 also 3 second timer
17:57 MTDiscord <wwar> I tryed the timer
17:57 MTDiscord <wwar> Didnt find a damage on the api txt
17:58 TenPlus1 here's the official creeper mod https://notabug.org/TenPlus1/creeper/src/master/init.lua
17:58 twoelk ever heard of the batavia shipwreck?
17:58 TenPlus1 yeah I saw a shipwreck mod, looked interesting
17:58 twoelk no, the historic shipwreck of the coast of australia
17:58 TenPlus1 ohh, lol
17:59 twoelk lots of survivers died on a barren treeless island  -  that had trees grow on the corpses later
18:00 twoelk pretty gruesome story by the way - the human part of it
18:00 MTDiscord <wwar> > on_die = function(self, pos) ; minetest.add_entity(pos, "mod:mymod") ; self.entity:remove() ; end How to make this spawns more than a single mob?
18:01 TenPlus1 k, when tree monster spawns on acacia bush it has 1 in 2 chance of becoming creeper... dont wanna scare the locals too much
18:01 TenPlus1 stick a for loop in there for however many you wanna spawn
18:02 MTDiscord <wwar> Aight will try that
18:03 TenPlus1 I do this: on_die = function(self, pos)
18:03 TenPlus1 self.object:remove()
18:03 TenPlus1 local num = math.random(2, 4)
18:03 TenPlus1 for i = 1, num do
18:03 TenPlus1 minetest.add_entity({
18:03 TenPlus1 x = pos.x + math.random(-1, 1),
18:03 TenPlus1 y = pos.y + 1,
18:03 TenPlus1 z = pos.z + (math.random(-1, 1))
18:03 TenPlus1 }, "mobs:greensmall")
18:03 TenPlus1 end
18:03 TenPlus1 end,
18:03 TenPlus1 sorry for spam people
18:05 MTDiscord <wwar> ohh thanks
18:08 TenPlus1 notabug and contentdb updated, hope I dont regret adding these
18:09 TenPlus1 no more mobs will be added to that pack, will have to be a new one from here on in
18:09 MTDiscord <wwar> aa.. i making an exploding master
18:10 * Krock screams in paste services
18:10 Krock hi TenPlus1
18:10 TenPlus1 hey Krock, sorry, forgot about pastebin for a sec
18:10 TenPlus1 how's things ?
18:10 Krock fine, thanks. how about you?
18:10 TenPlus1 not too shabby :)
18:10 TenPlus1 tweaked a few mods for the day, happy enough with results
18:15 TenPlus1 mese monster is using new texture (finally)
18:16 Krock o/
18:17 TenPlus1 \o
18:17 TenPlus1 been up to much yourself ?
18:18 Krock yes, but not necessary in Minetest
18:18 TenPlus1 gotta slip into real life from time to time :DD
18:21 * twoelk wanders through lush islands with farming, beautiful_flowers and some_plants and wonders wether there can ever be too much blooming plants
18:22 TenPlus1 never :)))))  hell I added 84 different plants from mc's plants megapack to xanadu (with permission)
18:23 twoelk might have double that spawning now, difficult to check if everything spawns as it should though
18:24 TenPlus1 heh, always nice to add decoration :D
18:25 twoelk seems clustering doesn't happen as imagined
18:27 TenPlus1 thinking of adding flat flower decoration that sits atop grass
18:27 TenPlus1 or even stones n sticks like plantslife
18:28 twoelk hm only 46 non minetest flowers on xanadu on my last list :-D
18:28 TenPlus1 86 in plants megapack, half used on xanadu cause I cut out a LOT of the colour alternatives :DDD
18:29 TenPlus1 http://minecraftio.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/plant-mega-pack-mod-minecraft.jpg
18:29 TenPlus1 wish the authors would allow me to made an actual mod for everyone to use :) but all i got was permission to use on my own
18:31 twoelk same with my some_plants, cant publish cause of use restriction from the mc original and just can't get around to painting my own flower sets
18:31 TenPlus1 I did manage to re-create some nice alternatives for baked clay, but that's only 4 :D hehe
18:32 twoelk I like them though
18:34 twoelk sigh, my niece is starting a job at a gardening center with nursery. Maybe i can coax here into drawing some pixely flowers
18:34 TenPlus1 lol, good idea :) inspiration to create
18:35 TenPlus1 had a few ppl do textures for school project for my mods :) that was fun
18:35 TenPlus1 and they got credits for it
