Every second the mod checks which node the player is standing on, which node is at foot and head level and stores inside a global table to be used by mods:

  • playerplus[name].nod_stand
  • playerplus[name].nod_foot
  • playerplus[name].nod_head

Older Sneak-glitch:

When enabled this allows players to use the old sneak glitch movement that lets you climb sneak ladders and jump double blocks when using sneak+jump,

old_sneak = false

Player Knock-back:

This feature is enabled by default and can be turned off by adding this line to your minetest.conf file:

player_knockback = false

Knock-back is determined by tool strength or a specific 'knockback' value which can be added to the tool damage_groups itself. A player with the privelage 'no_knockback' will not be affected when it's enabled.

Node 'on_walk_over' function:

When added to a node definition the function will be called whenever a player walks on top of the node e.g.

on_walk_over = function(pos, node, player)
    print ("---",, player:get_player_name() )
