This is what I remember from minetest 0.3: The world is stored as cubes of 16x16x16 blocks. So if you want to know whats block is at 36 blocks from the origin in x-direction, you need to get the blob field of the row that has coordinate (2,0,0). Because (36 div 16) = 2. The blob is zipped, so you ne...

You can download the latest version of minetest here: https://github.com/celeron55/minetest/zipball/master
However, this is only the source code. So you still need to compile it.

hovering/floating sand

In the latest version (0.4.dev-20111204-1) sand falls. However, when it hits water, it does not fall further. Which causes the sand to float on top of the water. If the water is a stream, that does not fill the entire cube, the sand hovers above the water. The sand should continue its fall into the ...

The output seems to be only written completely when minetest is closed. Also, could this use up the computer's memory if used for too long? There usually is some kind of buffer between the processes (I believe they're about 4kb). So the output in the logfile can lack the latest 8kb (there are 2 buf...

I'd suggest a database of textures, indexed by the texture's sha1 (it is relatively easy to get md5 collisions). Then upon connection, a client only needs to download the list of sha1 hashes. If any of these hashes are missing in the database, these are downloaded. This also avoids the overhead of h...

Or hit ctrl+c. I believe that is the normal way of shutting down a server. It makes sure that the map is saved.

I could share it, but my client is currently a messy merge between some minetest-delta branches; a rather ugly hack to work around a frequent segmentation fault; some feature branches that are not yet merged into the minetest master branch and of course the quick and dirty patches to get this mix ev...

My client has that command. It was quite easy to implement. I also have a 'fast mining' command, that allows me to mine about 4 times faster than with the mese pick (by reducing the delay between mining two blocks).

I like the way how the rules of physics in minetest differ from those in the real world. Makes it even more possible to do things that are not possible in real life.

Furnace fuels burning time

Some of the fuels have a burning time of 0, due to the use of integer division. Example (from the file 'content_nodemeta.cpp'): else if(ItemSpec(ITEM_MATERIAL, CONTENT_JUNGLEGRASS).checkItem(fuel_item)) { m_fuel_totaltime = 30/32; m_fuel_time = 0; fuel_list->decrementMaterials(1); changed = true; } ...

Nope. You should install build-essentials and some of the dependencies of minetest on your server and compile the game there. That will give you a minetestserver binary that you can run on your server.

Here a backtrace with debugging symbols. I know it is not vanilla minetest, though with every other build I've had I encountered this bug. I'm not sure if this is a minetest bug, as it might as well be a bug in irrlicht or the 3d driver (whose first release is about half a year ago). #0 __memcpy_ia3...

Do you know how to compile minetest? Or any other c++ program? If not, you need to install a few dependencies first. Open a terminal and enter: sudo apt-get install build-essential libirrlicht-dev cmake libbz2-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg8-dev libxxf86vm-dev libgl1-mesa-dev git You can then clone my min...

Good to know that it is not a bug in my system. I've created a patch that works around the bug. It is an ugly hack, but at least you can keep playing. I've also put it on github so you can cherry-pick it if you like: https://github.com/bcmpinc/minetest-delta From 70c0f037add35f7816b9fde6980ffb8ad63d...

Client crashes frequently on ubuntu

I'm running the client under ubuntu 11.04 and it crashes quite frequently. The crashes happen totally at random. I believe it has something to do with reading/writing past array boundaries.

Furnace gets lost when mined

When I mine a furnace it just disappears and does not show up in my inventory.

I often mine a furnace, such that I can place it in a position where it faces in the right direction. It would be great too if furnaces could be rotated.
