Re: Minetest 5.3.0 release candidate 1

I'll definitely test this during the week-end.
Any chance to get the android internationalization support in 5.3.0 ?

Re: Android developer needed

What's the point of having a "non-official" builder ?
If anyone can come and contribute to the mintest code base and maintain that part of the code ?

A better way to get this working is to start working on the engine and get the biome info from there :)

Re: What!?

The way passwords are stored changed during the 0.4.13 development.

So, if you created your login with a new client (and probably a new server version also), it used the new storage that is incompatible with older clients.

Re: Larger Avatars?

Probably 64x64 avatar images are good for the forum design as bigger one would just break everything and increase load time a lot... I just did a quick test replacing the current max size with 400x400... I feel it's better with 64x64 :) https://forum.minetest.net/download/file.php?mode=view&id=6...

I see you didn't try to do mapgen stuff in Lua. These "microoptimizations" do wonders there, and in anything that requires heavy computation. I never said micro-optimization is not useful and should not be used. What I said, is: first get it working, then benchmark your functions and then...

If you know the old node name, adding an lbm to convert it to a new one should be quite easy.

Re: how to integrate minetest window within another native a

You probably need to modify the minetest client to be embedded in some ways (and the communication is not a problem). Otherwise it's really platform dependent; you will end up with different code for each platform you want to support (and even with that, you'll probablt need to modify minetest to ha...

Re: generate a "map of the map"

I added a /mapgen chat command to my small mod that uses the emerge_area.
Just call /mapgen 1000 to generate a 2000x2000 map around your player position.

And if you use /mapgen 1000 100; it will do the same but for a 2000x2000 box from your player's altitude up to 100.

Re: generate a "map of the map"

@Napiophelios: yes it's similar but follows a square spiral instead of a round one; the height automation is not already done but is quite easy to add.

@yyt16384: I was not aware of that one, I think I will just add a command to use this in a quick way.

Stay tuned :)
