Re: [mod]yolo[yolo] permadeath - hardcore mode.

Gee, sounds like you're going to run out of usernames fast. But quite an interesting idea. There's probably some use-cases that I can't think about. I didn't want it to make it use MT's internal ban code, since that bans all players from the same IP. That would have been 3 lines of code anyway. Ple...

However, players from the same IP address are able to log in using a different username. This purely bans the player name, and not t...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

One more update: Due to Emerald joing the server ranks as admin, I had to change the ranking code as Admin scores don't count - Emerald lost the player rank entirely as a result. However, I decided that the boxes that are made by admins can be ranked, after all, it's players that rank the boxes, not...

There's a PR pending for full MCL2 support, but it needs rework. If that's merged, it would fully support it.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

- use texture-align = 'world' for most blocks like marble so that texturess for stairs, slabs and others all connect nicely - custom textures for the slabs and stairs, with bevels on the top side too I don't see the benefit for both of these, I think it'll make many stair/slab nodes look weird, and...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

I thought there was a private message system. Where is it? Or did I confuse it with something else? Yes, there is. You can access it by using any in-game terminal, and using the `telex` commands. There was a post in this thread a few weeks back that explained it. I'll copy that to the topic start s...

Re: [Core Developers] Minetest's migration from GitHub

If there is a reasonable conclusion that migrating is needed or significantly beneficial to Minetest and outweighing the costs, then I'm 100% sure that the decision to move would be backed by all the developers. Logic dictates that because this move hasn't happened or isn't urgently being discussed,...

The question you pose is ambiguous. You say: if the Minetest Core Developers are willing to move But since this is unbound, you are going to get scattercloud answers based on different presumptions (move, if when?). It also is problematic that you use the words "willing to" and not somethi...

No.

If it ever happens, that would give us a fantastic amount of publicity. Like, the best thing that could ever happen to Minetest.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

Depends on what you like. I personally enjoy parkour a lot, but I think most of the parkour boxes are poor (just a bunch of blocks scattered on the wall, most of the box being empty). There are only a few interesting, nice-looking parkour boxes, like number 332. That's not the most interesting one,...

Not going to happen. The server will continue to run. The person who maintains it might change, of course, especially if someone equally dedicated as me shows up to do so when I'm no longer capable of doing that.

Due to the insistance of some builders that they should be allowed to submit boxes that took longer to PLAY than to BUILD, I am instating an additional creator rule. :) The goal of this rule isn't to block parkours, but we do want to make sure that most players are physically able to play most level...

If you complete the ceiling puzzle while standing on one of the ends next to pistons you fall through the floor when the switch happens (slabs are removed revealing pedestal). This can be fix if a clay violet clay block is placed under the wall...

Is the clock reset when one leaves a box because its too hard and returns a while later, then completing it (basically sleeping a night over it, or two, or three, …)?

Totally fine for making a server. The only reason to specifically compile the separate server is when you want to run it without e.g. X11 libraries or modify the linked features.
