Re: Minetest is boring (clickbait) A few thoughts about Mine

Isn't it ironic that in that topic about banning forks of Minetest from the server list, one of the supposed criteria is those forks that don't "feel" like traditional Minetest. Yet clearly most users probably agree that vanilla Minetest Game is bland, boring, unoriginal, and uninspiring. ...

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

Huh? My pathfinder is 3D. From the post I linked above: It handles 3D terrain mapping, converting all walkable surfaces into 2D "hint" maps, then compresses and caches those results into per-mapblock node-graphs for lightning fast lookups. The pathfinder supports numerous search options to...

Re: What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?

That's very interesting burli! I actually developed a Lua-based pathfinder as well. Nice to see we're thinking along the same lines.

Re: [poll] Want we a fork with different name in serverlist

The multicraft server is promoting their own game in the minetest server list. No other server in the minetest server list, did this so far. What do you mean by promote? Any server that has a different set of mods than vanilla Minetest Game is technically its own game. They might still be listed as...

Re: [poll] Want we a fork with different name in serverlist

That's not what I would call a fork. I have no problem to change the source code for servers, to do the job as a server better and more efficient. Fork in software development has a specific meaning. It's not a random word that is conditional on whatever some people feel like it should mean. Any ch...

Re: [poll] Want we a fork with different name in serverlist

It's mind boggling why this discussion is still continuing. Whether or not a server is forked doesn't have any proven correlation with the overall player experience. There are several non-forked servers that are running the MineClone2 game that are obviously far less like traditional Minetest. So wh...

Re: What happens after I run out of HDD?

I actually began work on a Lua-based map explorer called MapBridge back in April. It's basically a suite of command-line tools that allow for validating, reporting, and visualizing any given range of mapblocks within map.sqlite databases. The scenario you've described would be a perfect test-case fo...

Re: [poll] Want we a fork with different name in serverlist

But we're talking abut a Minetest servers list, not a Minetest and arbitrary forks servers list. There is no reason in parasitizing the Minetest server list infrastructure for an own fork of Minetest except being lazy. I hardly think I'm "parasiting the Minetest server list infrastructure"...

Re: What happens after I run out of HDD?

^ This is one of the main reasons that I configure multiple partitions, both on my production server and all my home computers. I think I first started this practice around 1991 or so on my Mac SE. I had System, Programs, and and Data partitions. I pretty much kept to that same scheme when I switche...

Re: [poll] Want we a fork with different name in serverlist

Well not all forks of minetest are bad.... My server runs on the S3 Engine, which is highly customized fork of Minetest 0.4.14. I forked Minetest so I could add the features I need to make my vision of the the Just Test Tribute game possible. The entire concept of Minetest is that it's open source A...

Re: Post your screenshots!

Hey, everyone thanks for the words of encouragement! The release is still on schedule, so stay tuned :) In other words, it's useless. At least for me.

Re: Post your mod requests/ideas here

Sure, I see it of the (my) new server open all with 0.4.x version - the hell in game. I've been running a custom fork of 0.4.14 for years, and never experienced this problem. Even mobile players with high network latency have no impact on performance or reliability. They simply time out, as would b...

Re: MultiCraft Creative Server

JT2 used to be very popular with players of Multicraft and other forks, since it wasn't mod heavy and didn't impose username restrictions. I also think it was a far better representation of Minetest since spawn was protected from griefing and offered a safe haven for n00bs. I'm working on a new vers...

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

Isn’t it pretty clear at this point that Minetest will live and die with Irrlicht? I totally understand that it's unlikely core devs would have the incentive to transition to another platform, because so much of the code-base depends on the Irrlicht framework already. But at the same time, is it wo...

I wonder if the core devs would entertain the possibility of an API specifically for CPP map generation mods. I realize they've opposed general purpose APIs for the CPP-side in the past . But that seems mostly to do with code interoperability concerns (i.e. shared interfaces for CPP and Lua would be...
