Re: Minetest - Education Version

I guess this IS the Minetest Education community? I am currently ramping up a Minetest "mess" to start using in our Elementary Schools. Learning is easy and a lot of fun in the minetest community, even if it seems a little less than busy. I call it a mess because whatever we want to call ...

Re: Education, minetest in the classroom

You have some future architects there! Thanks! I'll tell my students your comment. If you build the school two (or more) times as big as in reality, you can easier rebuild it, e.g. thin walls (0.5m), l guess the walls of the school aren't 1 metre thick. Maybe you could even teach them how to use Ph...

Hello. This is an update on the use of minetest in my technology class. I told my students "you have to build the school".... then, they started planning how to do it, they formed in groups (I didn't tell them how to work), they went to the different classrooms and offices to take pictures...

Hello, don't know if this question belongs here but.... Is there a command (or anything) to see the number and max number of clients within the game (not in the .conf file). This is because I have modified the .conf file, but it seems that when I start the server, this has no effect. So, if there is...

fill chests with specific nodes

Hello!

How can I fill chests with a large number of nodes (glass, chairs, dyes, etc.)?
I know I can get in creative mode and fill them, but that is slow. Is there a file in the world folder where you can type the chest contents?

thanks!

Minetestcr the question isn't dumb at all, for making nodes there are two basic options. Use the nodebox editor(NBE) or create a mesh with a 3d program and export them in a format that minetest handles. The models in the home decor modpack are meshes created in Blender and exported as obj, meshes a...
