Makes the head, and the right arm when you're mining, face the way you're facing, similar to Minecraft. Compatible with 3d_armor. This is an ugly hack. Forked from Kaeza's animplus mod.

The head only turns up and down relative to the body, except it turns slightly to the right/left when you strafe right/left. When you turn the body turns with the head.
Works in both singleplayer and multiplayer.

  • MTG_4_Nov_2017 (minetest_game after 4 Nov 2017, 0.5.0)
