Re: Multiple Core Use?

I am told that Minetest does not utilize cores. Is this true? No(*). Minetest uses threads for a few things (mapgen, for instance) and therefore, if you have multiple cores, they will be used. (*)However, the main bulk of the work that minetest performs is done on a single thread (client step, netw...

umm, no.

Minetest uses OpenGL which uses the GPU to do all the rendering.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

I would like to try your server, but it's not playable for android users. It's actually playable. You have to use the official 0.4.16 build, and you'll need to wait a long time before the game loads. I've succesfully played through some of the levels myself with my android phone. Most Android versi...

Re: [MOD] SQLite Auth [sauth]

If you use a sqlite player db, you can do some really cool stuff on the cmdline to prune your databases. One of the quickest prunes you can do is to remove players from sauth.sqlite that have never actually successfully logged into a server, for instance because they failed protocol version or timed...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

I think I found a design flaw! This hint contains a hint for box 179. If you placed the first pumpkin, you can take it back. You then can place the same pumpkin near the exit. Now you need to place the pumpkin at the wall and jump on it. Jump again and take it, then quickly place it one level highe...

Mech Connector changes

I've made a small update to the mech connector tool. From now on, using it should be a little bit more simple and straight forward: - Left click always starts a new connection - Right click completes a connection (you can do this multiple times to connect one source to many destinations). Previously...

Re: Editorial controls

- Completely redo your box Um, no. Hold up. Assuming you worded that exactly as you meant it, if you redo the box, it is changed from the original creators box and is now yours. If you are needing to redo a box completely, just reject it and notify the creator. Otherwise it is rather rude to "...

Editorial controls

I want to make sure all builders are aware of this, but I don't think I've said it explicitly before, and it deserves saying out loud: When you submit your box, and it gets accepted, you lose all control over the content of the box. Of course, most players understand that once they submit it, that t...

Almost all the code is in a single git repo, and splitting it up wouldn't make any sense, since it's all fairly tied in together.

Yes, I've already said before (twice?), the solution is obvious: We're not going to do multiplayer boxes. Not any time soon.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

I'm not fan of two players boxes :| it should be optional. Nobody would force you to complete multiplayer boxes, they would never be mixed with singleplayer boxes. (I thought that would be obvious... I'm not even sure why you would assume that it wouldn't be). Anyway, entirely hypothetical and in n...
