Well, unfortunately, the gears are part of the model... I could get rid of them altogether, but its hard now to change the texture...
If one was going to change the gears: Open the blender file, select the object, enter edit mode, DELETE all the gears, model a new gear, change the texture image, unwrap the new gear onto the texture, then move and copy the new gear into the machine. I'm not sure, but it is my impression that it needs to all be one object.
If Im doing it, then It'll have to wait until mon or tues, but Im happy to share the model if you want to do it.
(open the texture that came with the mod in the blender texture editor)
I decided to make the inventory image because the autogenerated cube and image was distorted. Try it out yourself and see if you think its ok, if you do, then you can keep the auto-gen image
the reason that it can't be picked up: You were right, the only group it belonged to was "choppy = 2". Just now I updated it so that it also had "cracky = 2", so now it should be able to be dug with a pick.
Also, it can't be dug if: its in another player's protection (of course)
or if it has coins or gold in it.
If you want it to be able to handle silver coins, then it needs a bit more work on the code. RN, It can ONLY handle gold coins. That can be easily fixed in about 1 hr of coding and debugging.
OK, so given all that, What do you want to do? I need it laid out clearly. I am willing to merge it with the coins mod, fix the gears to use your image or similar, use the auto-gen cube inventory image (and wield image), and make it able to handle silver coins.
Or you can do any or some of that.
If we are changing the code significantly, it makes sense for me to handle that... I know my code best, You'd have to figure it out, though that would be made easier since I left comments everywhere.
Please check the auto-gen image before deciding on that... I don't think you'll like it as much
also, if we are adding silver coins, what texture should we use? I need a good texture for them... I tried editing the stack of gold coins (coins.png) to make it look like silver, and failed pretty spectacularly. Please indicate that.
In summary, Please give me a bullet-point list of what you want me to do. I can do it next week; however, I don't want to have vague instructions and find out later that I have wasted a lot of time... Lets decide who will do what (I dont mind doing it all), and be clear about what needs to be done.
If instead you want to edit the mod yourself from here on, thats fine with me too, just make it clear what will happen.
