Re: Microsoft accounts required to use Minecraft in 2021

Can someone please explain the difference between having an account for a service which is owned by Microsoft, and having an account for several services owned by Microsoft?

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC

I am already a moderator in #minetest-hub (for what that's worth), have managed this and several other chat rooms before on several different platforms, and am a moderator in the Unofficial Discord. I feel that I at least somewhat qualify to continue to manage it, although any help from "more offici...

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC and remove Discord bridge

Oh dear, this discussion has turned into a dumpster fire. As the creator of the Matrix room and community, I feel it's only fitting for me to actually chime in with my own stance. While IRC can theoretically have modern features (thanks to the tremendous amount of work those at the IRCv3 project hav...

Re: Proposal: migrate from IRC to Element

Matrix.org hosts a Freenode Bridge, these are the best you're going to get for connecting Matrix to Freenode at the moment. You can join #freenode_#minetest:matrix.org, #freenode_minetest-dev:matrix.org, etc from any matrix client to get access to the IRC channels.

Re: Proposal: migrate from IRC to Element

Ah yes, the saga of "No, the client isn't the platform" continues after all these years. Element is the official client for Matrix, Matrix is a decentralized HTTP+JSON based protocol for Instant Messaging. Element has integration with the Jitsi Meet service (also open source) for video conferencing....

Re: Proposal: migrate from IRC to Element

I dislike modern social networks, i would very much dislike being forced into some trendy Facebook-inspired social network to do development.
This is so disconnected from the discussion and uninformed its embarrassing.

I think you're requesting a modpack version of the game, to which I politely say "No."

The Staff not killing players is a known issue, it will be fixed in a future update.

Re: Other, Superior Open Source Game Engines Exist Now... :D

Godot is not at all the same thing as Irrlicht. Irrlicht is a graphics library, so MT would need a new graphics library, not an entire engine that wants to manage everything itself. Any big change like this would likely cause numerous extra bugs as well, and potentially take years to finish. I'd muc...

Re: [Linux] Minetest Appimages

I've been working on getting reliable AppImages for Minetest for a few days now. I will likely try to get a PR going once all the configuration tweaks are worked out (hopefully with TravisCI integration assuming no devs disagree with using it for builds).

Re: Vulcan For Minetest Would Be A Good Thing

No, that's not how that works. Vulkan is a new graphics API and is good because of that, and is probably more efficient for some tasks than OpenGL. This does not mean that every game to tack on support for it will instantly have insane performance. Minetest doesn't use OpenGL properly, does not have...

Re: Project organization

The way IKEA is structured is mostly concept based, where chunks of things are split up into related mods. Anything IKEA-specific has the " ikea_ " prefix attached to it's name, while the more generic mods have more generic names (both have generic item names though, like " chairs:vedbo "). For exam...

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

Ruben made the ContentDB because games are made for MT, not forked from it. The CDB by nature makes Minetest a content distribution platform, there is nothing to agree or disagree about. I've suggested making MT a more library-like game engine, but the amount of structural changed needed makes it im...

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

MTG IS BAD, EXTERMINATE! Arguing about how bad or good MTG is is not going to get you anywhere. The only reason a new player would be disapointed to find a storefront rather than Free Minecraft is because we still treat Minetest like a game. Heck, just yesterday someone joined the Unnoficial Discor...

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

A few notes: 1. Minetest is a volunteer project, core devs have about as much free time as you and me so they must choose what to work on carefully. 2. Bringing other drama against the core devs here is unwarranted and bad. Don't do this. 3. MTG is a bad game, but a great base for modded servers and...
