Re: Minetest is not and likely never will be a game engine

Here's what you don't seem to understand runs. You can make your own game without the need to use MTG, the option is there (look at warr1024 and jordach's current projects). Minetest has no backstory to even be considered a full specific game, at the moment it's treated as a open-source sandbox canv...

Re: Minetest is not and likely never will be a game engine

I'll say this again. Minetest is considered to be a game engine despite relying on a specific game engine like Irrlicht because it welcomes the creations of community custom made games which necessarily doesn't mean that you have to stick to default mod soup to make a full game, only lazy peple do t...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

The Unofficial Discord practically lit up like a Christmas Tree with activity proves that something is clearly wrong. To quote a few users off of UD: https://i.imgur.com/bGp2jYP.png https://i.imgur.com/UnK8NGa.png I have an alt at the UMTD which I hardly ever check on (I checked on it back when run...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

I get the impression that the part of the community that predominantly active on Discord really loves drama and jumps at every opportunity to have it, no matter if it's justified, relevant or truthful. From the screenshots I've seen at various occasions discussion there can get quite toxic too. Nop...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Minetest won't ship without Minetest Game until a new mainmenu is created. A new mainmenu will present new users with a list of games on their first launch, allowing them to choose a game to download. Here's my current prototype: https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/2122943/80736588-40b8ad00-8...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Let me give an example: recently I met a few people who create music and wanted to somehow enrich this or that minetest game with their songs. But nobody wants to add music to the game. These are large files and this is a problem. We thought then that it would be nice to have a CSM full of music an...

If only c55 had HR, which he obviously does not have HR set for his core devs. So this is out of the question. I love that kind of answers: no because no, no, no, no. If that joke about HR was funny, that reply would at least have a humorous sense. There is nothing wrong to let the job be done by s...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

An engine without games - Since MTG is in maintenance only mode, it is official that Minetest ships with no real games. The struggle of banishing MTG is strong, but core devs refuse to stop this X) And you're right. this is a game engine. should be treated as one rather than a full game MTG is inev...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

So if anyone else is still unhappy and not pleased about Minetest depending on Irrlicht. then write your own game engine like what oilboi is doing and form your own community. oilboi is doing this because he is not pleased with Minetest's current performance issues. A Fork right now is currently poi...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Instead of thinking about a fork, you could think about a paid audit. Hire someone who will review each line of the code, analyzing the code according to the guidelines made for that purpose...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

If anyone wants to "fork" minetest, my personal opinion is to just rewrite it from scratch in a more modern toolkit like godot. Forking the minetest that is based on irrlicht is useless IMO because you're just going to inherit the same weaknesses and design decisions of irrlicht-minetest,...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

A fork isn't a bad thing per se, and "supporting the community" is putting the cart before the horse, it isn't what a fork needs to succeed, it just needs devs. If a fork has just one person working on it and he fails to attract anyone else, then sooner or later it dies. If the person who...

So maybe these people - me included - are the problem, but is the silence treatment the right approach? Dialogue is key, always. Maybe core devs are so fed up, stressed, can't even breathe, fine: but let's talk about it, let's understand each other. These problems can't be solved one way. Silent tr...

Re: Failures of Core Dev and the Needs of Content Creators

Also, yes, given the current situation, to me the best solution is a fork. it doesn't invite features, it only separates the community further. The community is separated already.

Since minetest currently doesn't have a feature to make player-to-player right clicking events a thing on the Core API, I decided to make a mod that will grant such ability to fellow modders out there who are in need of this feature. Using this mod, you can now make on_rightclickplayer events until ...
