I love the asthetic, it has a low poly asthetic that some may call clashing with the usual voxel look, but it's fine with me, not to mention it's not bloated with random furnishings causing very high ram usage, in short, I love it.
A wonderfully beautiful mod. I personally identify the most with the classic rainbow flag but I appreciate the sheer amount of different pride flags that are available for those who feel like they identify closer with another one. The flag itself is also nice and even flutters in the wind! :D
Switching the flags by repeatedly right clicking is a bit cumbersome though (gives the same frustration as trying to get the right painting in Minecraft... oh I just clicked past the one I wanted, oops), some kind of GUI to select them and also see the name of each flag would be nice.
for personal and religous reasons, I don't support the LGBTQ+ community. But the mod is cool, I like the waving flags and the ideas behind this. If I compare to CTF flags (sorry rubenwardy) these are a lot better!
EDIT: I still respect people who have chosen to be a prt of the community, no hate towards anyone.
Gameplay consists of mostly using sprint to get away from the guards (they have decent pathfinding, so you can't just turn a corner and wait), and trying to collect items while you run. This can get rather boring and grind-ish, unless you understand how the game works.
Each map is different- every time you restart the game, you find yourself in a new map. Sometimes, you're unlucky and a guard is right next to you where you spawn ... that's annoying and probably a bug. Sometimes, you end up in a maze where you will meet 3 or 4 guards before you ever see an item chest, which will basically lead you to sprinting wildly and hoping for some breakthrough, which usually never comes. Sometimes, you find yourself in a maze where you gather 10+/20+ items before seeing a single guard, which makes the game too easy!
Stealth is not incorporated into this game, sadly. You can't try to sneak around the guards or anything, because they are programmed to 'see' players within a radius, so they can just see through walls. If the guards acted more human - i.e., they only remember where they saw you go, and they don't know where you are currently, it would add a dynamic of stealth to the game and make the game much more interesting. (example: turning three corners very quickly in an attempt to 'shake' off the guards)
In some maps, the best strategy is just to make a wild run for the exit without taking any items at all. In others, you're not going to find the exit quickly, and you need to find items and play it safe.
Remarkable texture pack- I've enjoyed this one for a long time because of it's consistency, beauty, and its support for so many mods, including ethereal, moretrees, and moreblocks, mods that I often come in contact with. Every single texture fits right into the style and makes a wonderful atmosphere.
Fantastic biomes that fit right into minetest_game
I am surprised how good these biomes look w/ minetest_game, well done! This opens up numerous opportunities for adding new mobs to fit every biome (like crocodiles in the bogs, pandas in bamboo forests, etc), a lot of new exploring potential, and a lot of new crops/foods!
A few textures don't fit into MTG too well: namely bamboo and downy birch (and maybe cranberries should have a texture more like blackcurrants, it's hard to tell whether the texture looks like berries or not). This is really just my opinion though, everything looks quite good already.
Highly recommended, this is one of the best biome-adding mods for MTG I've seen so far!
Interesting pack, but there is a communist/socialist political imagery included in the pack. Totally unnecessary in a furniture asset pack meant for a general audience and seems like the author is sneaking in his own political views onto others. FYI, M-26-7 is the communist paramilitary group (like "SS") that brought Che Guevara and Castro into power through violence in Cuba. This pack contains the flag of this military group.
Nice try to add parkour elements, but lacky execution
I used this for a parkour, but there are some things which are unpleasent. The checkpoints are useful, but I don't understand why the default setting for the respawnpoint is at 0, 1, -52. I get teleported into the stone as I died. There is maybe an option to save the position when a player joins and use it later for this. Too, the checkpoints are global, every player is teleported to the checkpoint which was used at least. I try to code a mod like this too for a server with my friends, but I despair while I try to save metadata for each player. And, at last, it would be nicer if you use on_walk_over(), because someone is maybe confused if you must hit it.
But, I hope you can use something from this, and maybe develope the mod further.
P.S.: A full english translation would be nice too!
This is satire, please don't disrespect it since even the dev says the ores don't have uses.
This is a parody of all the bloated "stuff" mods you see these days, jeez.
Anyways, Tim7 out. Until the next day, or something LOL.
Super sympa, mais pas assez d'interaction, de vie.
Super plaisant pour les débutants comme moi.
Quelques difficultés à comprendre certaines recettes car non présente dans le livre.
Par contre, mon jeu bug sur l'apparition des "Mummy" dans une pyramides de lave dans un radius de plus de 100 blocks ... HELP Please !
AsyncErr: Lua: Runtime error from mod 'tsm_pyramids' in callback luaentity_Step(): Invalid vector (expected table got nil).

No new functionality, other mods do the same job better
This mod adds no uses for the silver provided other than tools and armor - also, the textures are inconsistent, with the tools actually having the exact same textures as the iron tools in minetest_game/default.
If you're looking for a mod that adds silver, try Moreores by Calinou, or if you want a mod that adds a similarly looking block/ore, try Quartz by Evergreen. These mods have been around a long time and are used by a lot of other mods, creating actual uses for them.
This mod was okay-ish when you had to manually install mods - users would generally know what they were doing.
But on CDB, I think there should be a big warning in the short description (I'm thinking about users that pick mods from the content manager and don't have access to the long description and reviews) about adding this mod to existing worlds. It is potentially destructive. Hence the thumb down.
Altering cactus, for instance, is an issue. I suspect Hamlet's mod predates "branches" on default cactus schematics; but now it looks like a bad idea.
Also, as much as I liked Hamlet's (original author) work when they were active, the code is not very good. That's no big deal because it only executes once, but still, it could use a rework. What one should do is simply fetch the original groups definition, overwrite the falling_node group (it will be auto-inserted if it does not exist), then override the original node.
This is quite a compelling mapgen - with a little fine-tuning you can get islands that look reminiscent of Hawaiian landmasses!
This mod adds its own trees and flora - so it is not compatible with mods that add flora or new biomes yet. You can enable them - they just won't show up in the mapgen with this mod enabled. Support for customized flora/biomes on these islands would be great!
Additionally, rivers are not a thing in this mapgen, sadly. There are 'inlets' of water and reservoirs which spawn inside islands - sometimes this can result in a huge chasm in the island all the way down to a muddy puddle! (which seems to not be intended)
So, there is a bit more work to do here, but this has the beginnings of a masterpiece! Kudos to Termos.
This mod adds a bunch of ores that have no unique uses, and the textures are inconsistent. While this may make caves more interesting, after a while nobody will care because the ores themselves don't serve any purpose!
I would recommend that the mod add more interesting uses for each of it's ores, that are unique not only to each ore, but differing from other ore-adding mods... there are a lot of them now which add very little new gameplay or incentive to gather the ores provided.
Too Many Ores works as a sort of base for editing ores, useful to someone that needs to edit tools and items because they already have the materials to alter them. I do disagree with finding ores basically everywhere.
The texture style doesn't fit at all with minetest, and the functionality is more-or-less useless- trees are already infinite in MTG and most games. If you need to cut wood faster in survival, choose a mod like Woodcutting.
This is a light mod that proves some pathfinding and lag advantages of mobkit - the code itself is very well optimized. However, this is just a demo- there's no spawning or player-mob functionality (other than attacking the player) like taming, etc. It adds two mobs: A wolf and a gazelle which interact with each other, pretty cool to see the predator-prey chases :)
I kind of like this texture pack. It is awesome, lightweight, stylish and truly vibrant. The light colours in the game truly amaze me. Everytime I see the world with your textures enabled, it feels really beautiful. If I conduct some really wierd lua mapgen experiments, your mods turn that experiment into a masterpiece. Hence strongly recommended if anyone plays mtg.
This is currently the dragon up the freeway when it comes to Minetest animal mods - a well polished work of art! Kudos to ElCeejo.
The animals themselves are well polished, have more behaviorial logic than any other mod not made by ElCeejo, and are really immersive!
The models stick to a consistent style which is asthetically pleasing and the textures go right along w/ the style to boot.
Sure, the mobs are going to end up being a bit robotic while walking around with nothing to do, but these are some of the least robotic mobs I've seen so far. Herding/Flocking behaviours stand out, as well as aerial predation (i.e. Owl)- I think they add a genius touch.
When you're dealing with all these behaviours, expect a bit of extra lag in return. This particular mod is pretty laggy for any public server, even with bird flocking nerfed :-)
However, it compares nicely with other mob mods like petz or mobs_animal per mob - These mods don't have even close to the amount of features animalia has, but don't optimize their code well enough to provide a significant lag differential, whereas animalia has pretty decent optimization. The (slight bit of) extra lag is worth it!
The trampolines are really fun. Love the cabinets and lanterns. Love the misc. items here and there which really make a home feel more like home.
The work bench is useful, but confusing. Thought it was broken at first. Took me several minutes to figure out that hammers are a fuel, not a tool. You just gotta set the item in the repair slot, a hammer in the hammer slot, then wait.
I love this mod, but I do wonder why the super glow glass slabs don't shine.
As I said, I do love this mod. I love how super glow glass can be super efficient torches, (changing 3 glass and 6 torches into 24 super glass microblocks). However, I am wondering why the super glow slabs (if you craft them from microblocks) no longer shine. Anyways, thank you for the mod.
Having a good path system does more for a new server than one might think- and this mod does it for you! Also, if you use vehicle mods, you can ride around (almost) endlessly on these roads :)
My suggestion for the mod would be to make what nodes the road is made out of configurable, currently it is hard-coded; you can do it by changing the content ID's in init.lua and/or changing the description/textures of the nodes in nodes.lua, but that's not as desirable as an easy setting!
