Ehlphabet is a mod which adds nodes that show characters/symbols/alphabets. User:Ehlodex forked it from abjphabet by ABJ, development is now continued by User:Och_Noe.

Ehlphabet block with the CJK character "south", seen in Crossroads City Hall Station (South 1)

At the current stage, Ehlphabet supports:

  • Latin alphabets (A-Z)
  • Numbers (0-9)
  • Greek alphabets
  • Cyrillic alphabets
  • German alphabets (Ä, Ö, Ü, ß)
  • Some CJK Characters (猫,東/东,南,西,北,站)
  • Some symbols (punctuation etc)

The Latin, Greek and Cyrillic alphabets are only available in uppercase.

Usage

To create the nodes with letters you need a "Letter Machine" (ehlphabet:machine) and "Ehlphabet block" (ehlphabet:block) for each letter node you want to have. PLace the "Ehlphabet block" on the left slot in the machine and enter the wanted latter in uppercase in the middle entry field with "Letter" above. Now press the button "Blank -> Letter" and a node with the letter will appear in the right slot. Remove the nodes with letters before you use other letters. A bug which caused item loss with a full output slot when another letter had been in the output slot was fixed.

It is also possible to make "stickers" when paper (default:paper) is place in the input slot. The paper stickers are destoyed when removed.

Development

There is the idea for a "CJKphabet"- a version with all CJK characters, but it's currently not clear how to do it without breaking the item limit in minetest.

Also would it be nice to have a pipeworks-enabled machine with a digiline remote control.
