[Mod] treecapitator [treecapitator]

This mod is makes digging a trunk node of a tree destroy the whole tree including the leaves and the fruits. There are many settings, such as dropping no leaves but only saplings (as leafdecay does it).
Holding shift you can avoid its function to dig the single trunk node.
Neighbour trees are detected and preserved.
This mod is based on Jeja's timber mod, however, the code was revised over and over, so it became a different mod (according to the broom theory that is).
There I got the name.

How to install a mod?

[13.04.2015] Added in trees for moretrees, working out getting proper naming for capitating to work.

[14.03.2015] Added sound of a falling tree (taken from there Made "drop_items" and "drop_leaf" both "true" by default. (mintpick)


  • fix neighbour tree detection, wrong nodes become dug (test with vertical trunk fruit), pertains to non-v6 apple tree and jungle tree
  • use range_up and range_down for other trees too for greater precision in neighbour detection
  • improve moretrees support (see issue #2)
  • moretrees acacia
  • more precise neighbour detection for moretrees (cedar), fix moretree jungletree ignoring default jungletrees' leaves
  • technic chainsaw
  • proper documentation
  • Test if pine trees are different on v6 and non-v6 mapgen
  • Add a priority and priority condition to allow handling cone pine trees differently
  • Get rid of the cutting_leaves arguments because the problem is fixed in minetest
You can’t perform that action at this time.
