Block and mob renders

I don't know what you did, but it drastically changed my custom wiki skin. It wasn't like this before you changed the site CSS/JavaScript, so I think this is what caused it. Meeples10t ~ c 12:37, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

Dear Majr,

It's been a long month and I just wanted to apologize about the "persistent speculation and uploading of unwanted images". I wasn't trying to do anything wrong, I was only trying to help. I just wanted to make the pages look a little more formal and contribute to the wiki if I could. I didn't intend for any trouble. I'll try to make sure I don't upload any more unwanted images. Notify me if I make any mistakes in the future. Merry Christmas and happy new year.

Blocks 'n Stuff

Hey, i've seen you do images of blocks and stuff, and i know you use blender for like the chests and whatnot, but i was wondering, what angle of the camera is it? I have a wiki for my mod that i need better block images for the infobox off to the side of the block's page, and i was wondering the angles of the camera from blender. Thanks! --MCE626 (talk) 09:21, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Use numpad 1 to reset the camera angle, then use the numpad arrows to move the camera at a set angle. It should be obvious once you reach the correct one. Matt ⎜ 10:07, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
ok, thanks. And i was wondering about blocks with transparent textures... I have crops in my mod, and some other blocks that use transparency, and when i set the texture to the cube, it has the transparent part as white... --MCE626 (talk) 20:03, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
Select the A box in Shading > Material, I think. What you see is also different from how the render will turn out. Just because your do or don't see transparency, doesn't mean the render will or won't have transparency. They have separate settings, and I can never remember where they are. You should just google this stuff. Matt ⎜ 05:17, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Break tags

In reviewing the history of a page I was considering editing, I noticed that your bot is converting <br /> tags to <br>. I'm curious as to why. The former is both HTML and XML (XHTML) compliant while the latter is only HTML compliant. I've searched the Wiki rules and your usertalk archives before asking. Thanks! Catch0x16 (talk) 13:09, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

<br /> is ugly, and we're using HTML5 so XHTML support doesn't matter. Even if we changed to using XHTML for some wierd reason the wiki would automatically convert the tag, so I prefer the shorter one. Matt ⎜ 13:25, 5 January 2014 (UTC)


Hi, I'm trying to add an external link to the page, but I keep getting these "select cat images". Every time (it must have been around ten times now), I successfully select cat pics and upon clicking "Save page", asks me again. Is this deliberate to prevent spam, or is it a glitch? Phinbart (talk) 18:06, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

That is an anti-link-spam thing to prevent excessive links to other sites from automatic editing. If you don't select all the cat images it resets and asks you again. It is basically like those pictures with the distorted letters you must type into a text box. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 18:10, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
No, I mean, is it a glitch that it keeps coming up? I've tried twice already, carefully selecting and deducing what is a cat and what is not, and it keeps resetting! Phinbart (talk) 18:19, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
It has been a bit annoying for me, with moving a link it comes up sometimes, and rarely it does not identify that I selected all the cats. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 18:32, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
I've given up for now. I'm going to test it out again tomorrow. Phinbart (talk) 21:06, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Can you tell us what it is, how to use them, and how to create? 16px Ivan-r is admin in ru-MWiki 04:40, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

WP:Lua, mw:Extension:Scribunto. Module is where the lua scripts are kept, which will replace any templates that are too slow/unreadable. If Wyn hasn't installed the extension on the other languages, you'll need to go bug her about it.
Don't use any modules that I haven't yet replaced the original template with, as I haven't tested them yet. You should probably just wait a few days until I've finished messing around. Matt ⎜ 04:46, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
I realized that this will speed up the loading/templates work, what have you still not ready to use so they are not necessary. In other words, I realized that we should ask again in a week. Translated through Yandex translate. 16px Ivan-r is admin in ru-MWiki 09:51, 21 January 2014 (UTC)

New Template:Sprite

What new features does the new Template:Sprite, or Module:Sprite have over the old one? Is it just more efficient or does it offer new things that could not be done before? --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 16:04, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Faster, creates much less HTML, mainly. There's a few things here and there but I haven't done anything with them yet. Matt ⎜ 05:07, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Any way to add a color filter feature? For potions, leather armor, and spawn eggs that would be useful, needing less images for colors. --KnightMiner (talk|contribs) 03:29, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't know what that has to do with lua. It doesn't have any access to images, and there's no colour filters in HTML. The best you could do is a transparent overlay image with a background color, but there's really no issue with having hundreds of images. That's what we have sprites for in the first place.

Module:Grille at French Minecraft Wiki

Hi, I'm trying to update grid templates at the French wiki and I've installed the "grid" modules. Since the arguments "Output", "Fuel" and "Input" are translated respectively as "Résultat", "Combustible" and "Ingrédient" on every page, I would like to translate these args in the module to show the pictures, but the accents prevent me from making changes. I don't really want to change hundreds of pages ... So, is there a way to bypass this? Thank you — Itouchmasterpro d c 20:27, 25 January 2014 (UTC)

Use bracket notation (args['Résultat']) rather than dot notation (args.Résultat), which only works with A–Z characters. Matt ⎜ 05:04, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much, it works fine! ... But the numbers don't appear, because we use the old "|NR=%" on our pages. I want to change the Module:Grille so that this form works but the "|" prevents me from making changes (I tried to put brackets and/or apostrophes, but it still doesn't work). What should I do? Thank you! — Itouchmasterpro d c 09:38, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
I made the cell function accept a number argument and made the craftingTable function send the NR argument for the output to it, which makes it work as it used to. But you really should get rid of NR or you'll never have full animation support. Most of it could be done with a bot. Matt ⎜ 12:52, 26 January 2014 (UTC)
You say that the changes could be made faster with a robot? Indeed, that would save time! But I'm worthless in programming as you've noticed ^^ In any case, thank you for everything. — Itouchmasterpro d c 13:02, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Now I'm trying to set up Module:Sprite (and Module:Sprite/Bloc, Module:Sprite/Objet, etc.) but the sprites don't appear. Where is the problem? Also, i've the same problem as earlier: accents for certain words (Entité, Schéma) prevent me from applying changes in Module:Sprite. What should I do in this case? Thanks — Itouchmasterpro d c 17:44, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

Where were you having issues? In imgClasses? Just use bracket notation (['Entité']) for the names. The "name" parameter of the sprite is used as part of the class (but lowercase) as well as the page where it gets the IDs from. So make sure the name and the classname in Common.css match up. Matt ⎜ 06:07, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
ok it works! thanks — Itouchmasterpro d c 06:30, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Sorry to disturb you again but a "spritelink" doesn't work because of a hyphen in the word. For example, because of the hyphen in "Lapis Lazuli," it holds "Lapis" and the link doesn't work. What do I do ? — Itouchmasterpro d c 07:10, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Everything before the first hyphen will be used as the link, this will be used in the future to make it simpler to link to the correct page.
Example: {{BlockLink|Grass Block+top}}: Grass Block. This automatically uses "Grass Block" as the link, without having to do all this: {{BlockLink|id=grass-block-top|Grass Block}}.
This should be fine since you'd never use the id as the link, because it wouldn't be an existing page. Show me an example where this isn't the case for you. Matt ⎜ 07:32, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
(In Template:Block) this link {{LienBloc|id=minerai-lapis-lazuli|Lapis-lazuli (minerai)|Minerai de lapis-lazuli}} should redirect to the "Lapis-lazuli (minerai)" page, but this is not the case since it only holds the part before the hyphen (that is required in French). So it redirects to the "Lapis" page that doesn't exist. I've specified the id. The same with {{LienBloc|id=lapis-lazuli|Lapis-lazuli (bloc)|Bloc de lapis-lazuli}}. Look at — Itouchmasterpro d c 16:37, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Alright, I've changed it to use the full link if an id is specified. I also changed the separator to +. Matt ⎜ 00:14, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
Module:Sprite doesn't seem to make the link between uppercase and lowercase special characters: É, é Œ œ. For example {{LienBloc|Établi}} should redirect to "Établi" page (the id is "établi"). Can you make it? — Itouchmasterpro d c 07:10, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
How about now? Matt ⎜ 07:18, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
It works, you're awesome! — Itouchmasterpro d c 08:44, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

I can't use commas for numbers because I use them for animation, instead of semi colons. Unless we develop a robot that turns "|NR =" into "," and "," into ";", we are doomed to keep that. Accordingly, I've deleted the "Aliases" part from "Module:Grille" (not very useful) to have no problems because I've seen it used semicolons. What is the advantage of "aliases", how to use them? — Itouchmasterpro d c 12:23, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

I'm running my bot to start converting "," to ";" and maybe change "|NR=", if I can figure out the regex. Aliases allow you to simplify adding ingredients. For example, you can type "Any Wood" to get every type of wood block. Matt ⎜ 08:56, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Oh thank you so much for the great help! It's so boring to spend time on that. — Itouchmasterpro d c 09:25, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
That should be everything. Matt ⎜ 10:49, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Great! — Itouchmasterpro d c 11:00, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I think so, but to make sure, editors can place them on the right spots. Here Terra, Perditio, and Aqua are not regocnised. Also the number of aspects is hard to see, It should be made smaller somehow, or make it have a little offset. --tonkku107 «Talk

Only if that's one of the first things in the trace. The point of a stack trace is to go all the way up the code tree, so you can usually ignore everything but the first couple of entries as those are the actual modules. Matt ⎜ 02:30, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Minecraft Font File Usage

Hello, perhaps you are able to answer this question or know where to get this question resolved. I am interested in using three font files that are in-use on this wiki that are all named "minecraft" (.eot,.wof, and .ttf extensions) on another wiki source ( and wondered if there are licenses attached to those files that would prohibit me or if the sites CC-BY-NC-SA would permit it with their CC-BY-SA licensing. Or if there are any additional information that would cause this be a problem.

The three font files location, in question, are:

Thanks in advance. Kalbintion (talk) 21:49, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

I don't know if it can be licensed, because it's just simple geometry, otherwise while I did make the font from scratch, it's identical to Mojang's font spritesheet so it'd be under Mojang's license. Matt ⎜ 02:45, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
I can't imagine Mojang has a problem with others using it non-commercially since they haven't taken action for it here. The primary reason I ask is because I'm an admin of the Hexxit Wikia (a modpack wiki) and wanted to include this as well. I figured the license used for here would apply for the font file at the very least, and I've attributed it as such but I'll contact Mojang to see what they say. Thanks for the response.

Using JSON magic, is it possible for you to somehow integrate the MCF mod list into the Mods page?
