Provides API to register node metadata tools along with few useful tools

Tools / Weapons / Armor

Metatool Minetest mod provides few useful tools and API for registering metadata manipulation tools and other tools primarily focused on special node data operations.

Main use for Tubetool and Luatool is to copy configurations / code / channels from one node to another, for teleport tubes there's also network list and waypoints.

Sharetool is special administration / node sharing tool that can change node owner and set ownership to special shared account. Use command /metatool:give metatool:sharetool to get tool, ban privilege required by default.

  • For copy/claim ownership function: special + use.
  • For info function: sneak + use (if node does not have info then copy is executed instead).
  • For paste/restore ownership: use.

  • Pipeworks injectors
  • Pipeworks teleport tubes
