This mod is limited to Minetest version 5.5 … I have looked at the source code a bit and found no reason for that.
While it may have been tested with that version of Minetest, this looks like a mistake by the package maintainer.
Ok thanks: Unfortunately I couldn't test this mod on versions below Minetest 5.5, which is why I set this as a limitation. Have you tested the mod on another version?
I have not – but if you do not know about compatibility, it seems safest to me to not limit it to any version.
I think if it does not work with a Minetest version, users of the mod will complain about it sooner or later.
If a mod is version-limited, users with a different Minetest version will not find it in the content tab IIRC.
Thanks! I thought I had put the mod as a minimal version on Minetest 5.5, and not as the only one. I am very grateful that you quickly discovered this error. I will try to avoid the mistake in the future. Thank you so much!
Wait, did you choose 5.7 as the maximum version now? I can not find the mod in the content tab … maybe because I am using MInetest 5.8.0-dev?
Consider the following: Minetest 5.8.0 is going to be released soon and I think you might not want it that the new release does not show your mod.
I see you have fixed it. I wish you success with your mod.
You are right: I fixed that too. Thank you. Did you found other mistakes or things you would do differently, becaurse that is the first time that I use funktions in lua?
I only looked at the source code very casually. It looks generally okay, but you should probably use a linter like luacheck.
My best advice would be: Publish your mod on a platform like Mesehub and link the source code and issue tracker here
This would allow you to make new releases by just using git tag, because ContentDB has automation regarding that.
I'll take a look at this platform. And thank you for pointing out the error! :)
Happy to help!
