Re: [Game] Minetest Saturn [Spacesim]

How do you use the microfactories? I can't figure out how to make the power supply supply power... Put a generator (same as used in ships) in a slot. How do I do that? I've bought and placed the microfactory_power_generator, as well as a hydroponic farm and a mmfnr2. How do I put the reactor inside...

Re: Post your mod requests/ideas here

Power tools: power tap A rechargeable version of the rubber tap used to extract latex. At the very least, I want a more durable one. Just chop down the rubber trees (including the logs up in the trees) and wait for leafdecay to drop dozens of saplings, then replant those and use a grinder and extra...

Re: [Mod] Technic [0.4.11] [technic]

I always use v6, v7 is designed more towards mods using its API to register own biomes. I'm not 100% sure, but it may be that v7 doesn't actually have desert registered by default. Currently, v6 is meant for general gameplay without mapgen mods like ethereal etc.

Weird. Have you tried creating a new world with a different seed but the same mods to see what happens?

Afaik, no. Can you give a list of all the mods you are using? And how far have you travelled looking for deserts?

Re: mg_flags arent working right?

You could try to set these options in your minetest.conf file instead of the map_meta.txt file. But then they will apply to any new world you generate. I have it set up like this in minetest.conf currently: mg_name = v6 mg_flags = trees, nocaves, nodungeons, flat mgv6_spflags = nojungles You should ...

Re: [Mod] Technic [0.4.11] [technic]

You have to find a desert and dig a bit below the surface. The technic mapgen mod shouldn't be the cause of this.

Re: Server does not read from minetest.conf file

./minetestserver --config /root/.minetest/minetest.conf --info Are you sure it's /root? Not /home/root/.minetest/minetest.conf Home directory of root user is /root, not /home/root, so that looks alright. @whtemple1959 Why are you running minetestserver as root though?

Re: [Mod] Technic [0.4.11] [technic]

No, they don't have a limit by themselves, minetest unloads the areas of the map that are too far away, so parts of your power network are unloaded. You need to place the world anchor nodes that technic supplies in order to force areas to stay loaded in memory. It isn't craftable, you need to use &q...

I don't think there's an option for that, you'll just have to use @nearest and place the button so that whoever pressed it is nearest to the commandblock.

Re: Minetest on ancient hardware

Minetest is very CPU intensive, while 0AD probably uses more GPU intensive stuff, so it would run much faster on a good graphics card, while MT stays about the same. Probably, although there is a lot more stuff going on in a 0AD game (pathfinding, AI, etc.) than in a singleplayer MT game (even when...

Re: Apples not generating right

Not necessarily, I just checked my tree farm (with regular minetest game) and managed to find one apple completely covered by leaves in roughly 15 apple trees. So it's quite unlikely, and digging one block of leaves isn't that much work :)
Besides, it's more realistic like this.

Re: linux versions out of date?

The minetest packages for the individual distros are maintained by different people, most of which aren't actively following development (as they also maintain other packages) and thus are not aware of newer versions. You can usually request for them to update the package. You can also compile minet...

Don't remove example, there should be a separate file without the .example in its' name. Although you might have noticed that if you tried renaming it :)

Re: [Mod] Technic [0.4.11] [technic]

It's used for extracting raw latex from rubber tree grindings.
Steps:
1. Cut rubber tree wood
2. Grind it, each block of wood yields 4 grindings
3. Put grindings in extractor to yield 1 raw latex per 4 grindings

Re: New settings menu

I have seen a lot of open source games that use that advanced settings approach. I think that just providing a check box that shows advanced would be sufficient. As long as it's implemented nicely (works immediately when toggling) that would easily do the job. This would need a way to differentiate...
