This simple mod uses nodeboxes to supply a complete set of 3D flanged pipes.
Also included in this mod are "valve" and "pump" devices.
This simple mod uses nodeboxes to supply a complete set of 3D flanged pipes,
along with "valve" and "pump" devices.
Pipes are rounded thanks abusing minetest's nodeboxes ;-) , and when placed,
they'll automatically join together as needed. Pipes can go vertically or
horizontally, and there are enough nodes defined to allow for all possible
connections.
Unlike the previous version of this mod, these pipes are rounded, and when
placed, they'll automatically join together as needed. Pipes can go vertically
or horizontally, and there are enough nodes defined to allow for all possible
connections. Valves and pumps can only be placed horizontally, and will
automatically rotate and join with neighboring pipes as objects are added, as
well as joining with each other under certain circumstances.
Pipes come in two variants: one type bears one or more dark windows on each
pipe, suggesting they're empty, while the other type bears green-tinted
windows, as if full (the two colors should also be easy to select if you want
to change them in a paint program). These windows only appear on straight
lengths and on T-junctions.
lengths and on certain junctions.
There are no crafting recipes, yet, but you can use /giveme as usual, namely
"/giveme pipeworks:pipe 999" or so, and then place them as needed. See

something else to build on (perhaps a nicer-looking oil mod?), and does not
provide any of the code necessary to cause anything to flow through them. Like
the pipes, the valve and pump don't do anything useful yet, but you can punch
them to turn them "on" and "off". Note that the valve and pump do not rotate
yet, and the textures and shapes are not yet complete (hence their boxy
appearance).

If you don't need the old node names from the previous version of this mod,
edit init.lua and comment-out the 'dofile' line at the top.
Dependencies: None, but your copy of Minetest must be newer than git commit
1788709e2d for correct handling of nodeboxes and texture rotations (otherwise,
the pipes will still work but will look wrong). 0.4.2-rc1 will work fine if
you don't want to fetch from git.

Changelog
---------
2012-08-19: Pumps and valves now fully participate in the
auto-rotate/auto-place algorithm.
2012-08-18: Total rewrite again. All pipes are now nice and round-looking, and
they auto-connect! Also added temporary nodes for pump and valve (each with an
on/off setting - punch to change). No crafting recipes yet and the pipes still
