Creating collision boxes for Meshes

     One of the difficult parts of using Meshes in Minetest for nodes has always been figuring out the collision/selection boxes. Many times it's possible to just use a full node collision box for nodes smaller than a full box, but sometimes you need more precision.

Lets create models that look very blocky.

220 to 360 video

360 degree image
Software Blender
Time Taken 5 Hours

Download Single-camera.zip
Dual-camera.zip

This setup was created for Robbie over at Cat5 Technology TV who wanted to merge two 220 degree videos into one 360 video without having to run through a bunch of steps and multiple programs. I'd previously done some 360 degree video for him for a different project so he contacted me with a question. Several hours later, around five, I had these two files. These files are created for use with a camera that shoots 220 degree video rather than full 360 degree. What the files allow you to do is take your raw video footage and put it onto a sphere in Blender and then render it out in different formats, equirectangular for example.
The Single-camera file has everything you'll need if you are using a single video feed. I've included two planes that you can texture with a background and optional logo so you don't have a big black section in the void where the camera recorded no data. Helpful Youtube Tutorial Video
The Dual-camera file has everything you'll need if you are trying to merge two videos filmed on 220 degree cameras. This isn't a fully drop and go solution, you'll have to tweak around rotations of the halves of the meshes to get your seams to be less noticeable, and you'll never get a fully perfect seam, it's simply not possible with this setup. Helpful Youtube Tutorial Video

Low poly Scorpion

Time Taken 1 ish hour

Download Scorpion.zip

I created this low poly scorpion while doing a three video tutorial series on modeling, rigging, and animating. I was planning on sharing the model already for anybody that watched the tutorial videos, and liked the way the model turned out so much that I thought I'd put it on my portfolio as well.

The download includes the .blend file, texture, UV map, and list of animations.
 

Dimetrodon

Download dimetrodon.zip

I created this low poly Dimetrodon for a Minetest Subgame that I am working on. I'm sure other people might be interested in it as well.

Download includes .blend file, .b3d, texture, UV map, and a dopesheet of the animations(Walking, Attacking, Dying, and Idling.)
