  • Initial Release
  • detects only 6 nodes for 'air' around the spawner [top, bottom, left, right, front, back] afterwards it will check the node above and below the found 'air' node - so there is enough space to spawn someone
  • always picks random side from where the mob will spawn
  • detects for light and time of day - spawn mobs only at night if 'only_night' set to true
  • status 'waiting' - blue sparkles, for not enough light (day spawners) or too much light for night spawners
  • status 'default/inactive' i.e. if the spawner is closed from each side or there is no space to spawn mob
  • status 'active' when spawner is active and is spawning mobs
  • status 'overheat' when there is too much 'max_objects_per_block' (prevents from server errors), max value is taken from minetest.conf
  • easy to configure, add and remove MODs for mobs
  • only Mobs Redo from tenplus1 is added for now
  • added recipes for all spawners, it's expensive so it will not get overcrowded on the server only with spawners
  • almost everything is done dynamically
  • spawners emit small amount of light
  • active and overheated spawner can cause fire to flammable nodes around it
  • spawners are active only if player is in radius (21)
  • spawners are diggable only with steel pickaxe and above, so no noob griefers can raid your base too easy
  • mobs play sound when spawned
  • animated textures
