Re: [LICENSE ] Is the SSPL license "free" enough for CDB

I'm not seeing thats it's OSI approved, and since lawyers aren't too common here it's probably best to stay away from non OSI-approved licenses.

Re: [Meta] Forum Layout Proposal and Discussion

Often creators of content have content they want to share, but they consider it not at a suitable standard for ContentDB Wouldn't that be what the community announcements/news category be for? Also, how is that any different from posting it on the forums, since that has about the same level of &quo...

Re: [Meta] Forum Layout Proposal and Discussion

Perhaps servers should be able to advertise a homepage with the new URL button on the main menu. That way players can see more information about the servers without it being completely reliant on the fourms. ContentDB supports threads/discussions, but this doesn't help server owners. I don't think w...

Re: Realtime raytracing is here. what about minetest?

I have yet to see that raytracing provides any reasonable advantage compared to more standard lighting tricks right now. It theoretocally provides more realistic lighting and makes everything physically based by default, but PBR isn't new tech and raytracing needs a huge amount of power to do in rea...

[Meta] Forum Layout Proposal and Discussion

I've had some ideas for a while to help freshen up the forums a bit and try to reduce redundancy from days past when we didn't have things like ContentDB. Namely I'd like to condense and bring community news to the forefront, push content publishing fully onto ContentDB, and give obvious channels fo...

Re: Microsoft accounts required to use Minecraft in 2021

It’s not about multiple accounts with the same company, it’s about the company. But, it's the same company... It's not right to censor or silence people because you disagree with what they are saying. I hold no power to do this, and never support such practices. I'm surprised at this statement, tho...

Re: Microsoft accounts required to use Minecraft in 2021

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 o...

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.

I dislike modern social networks, i would very much dislike being forced into some trendy Facebook-inspired social network to do development.

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).
