Re: List of Possible Replacements for Lua formspecs

My opinion has always been that we should have our own pure Lua toolkit. Expose some 2D drawing primitives from core to client-side Lua, and let it do the rest.

It could also be published as a stand-alone library for others to use. AFAIK there is no pure Lua toolkit available at all currently.

Re: [RESEARCH] What Happened To Minetest 0.1?

0.1 never existed. 0.0.1 and 0.0.2 did, but it was kind of vague. Before 0.2, versioning was mostly just timestamps. This contains all the old binary releases (no Linux; those didn't exist): http://packages.8dromeda.net/minetest/minetest_old_releases_2010_through_2012_mostly_win32/ Here's all that a...

I hadn't taken the time to review 4.0 yet but now did and yes, it looks to be strictly an improvement over 3.0 for all I can tell.

Re: The Beauty of Minetest (2)

I really like what you're doing here. I'm a minimalist myself and have spent a lot of time browsing landscapes in a similar way. The cheeky use of MT's distance fog interaction with clouds in some pictures is nice. Practical notes: Can you publish these under a specific license that allows free dist...

Re: [Game] Minetest_c55 [WIP]

I don't like this version.

I think 2011-07-23 is probably the best one, before those pesky minetest-delta merges!

Re: Minetest Content Database

To answer a question: While the forum uses MySQL for historical reasons (and is not easy to convert to anything else), I prefer PostgreSQL for any new project I need to host.

Re: Rebuild from scratch on Xamarin, different engine...

I should add that it would be preferable to make something from the existing codebase though. By making it in a different language, you're going to have to do a lot of work to get future client-side Lua to work and we can't backport your fixes or anything. Also you can't use our updates and have to ...

Re: Rebuild from scratch on Xamarin, different engine...

I'm going to guess Vibrocil isn't going to make anything worse than the existing apple store ripoffs that sell in-game privileges for money, so I wish the best of luck to this. Minetest doesn't run well on low-end devices so it's a good thing to focus on. Of course, open source would be very welcome...

Re: [Mod] Advanced Trains [advtrains] [1.3.0]

Re: Making Mining Music

This is probably among the best original music about/for Minetest made so far.

Yes, quite frankly, the bar isn't very high here. I listened the first one two times. 8)

Re: dynamic image loading

Work could be done towards allowing the server to push updated or generated images to the clients at runtime. There are problems with that like the fact that the Minetest client has no means to ever delete any images, but even if that isn't solved, it would still allow updating player skins without ...

Re: The future of Minetest after RealBadAngel's departure

Well, this may be simplistic, but the whole issue I believe lies with our development team, and within Irrlicht itself. It isn't as easy to work in as other engines, which are much more streamlined. I know there was a thread opened that was talking about migrating Minetest to a different engine, bu...

Re: The future of Minetest after RealBadAngel's departure

Frankly, the shader system will very probably be abandoned in a corner. It will be maintained as-is and it might get some performance improvements, but there is absolutely no force that would move that part of Minetest anywhere now that RBA isn't around. It's just what will happen, there's no need t...

Re: The Flying Whale - the build

Meh; please stop fighting and adding unnecessary reports. The topic will be moved only if the moderators so decide on their own. I decide to not move it because it isn't strictly a map, which in my opinion gives Michael Eh? the freedom to post it here.

Re: DWYWPL A Kid Friendly Alternative to the WTFPL

I agree that WTFPL was a better idea a few years ago when Mine* was more of a college kid thing rather than a family thing. However, it's practically impossible to switch every piece of content away from that license, and regardless of that, going around changing licenses is not something I consider...

Welp. I guess hoping for the best is all most of us can do.

Re: image library functions in lua api

Converting pixels to voxels is a valid use case that comes up now and then. If somebody contributes a well-made small implementation of reading image files to the Lua API, I think it could be included. Anything that goes beyond the bare minimum will probably have hard time being accepted because Min...

Re: Old-timer MT lovers (4 years on)

I thought of something that might be of interest... Here's the first ever map rendition of the c55.me server (back then actually celeron.55.lt). It was generated right on the next day (2011-05-30) after the first version of minetestmapper was published by J0gge (2011-05-29) on the finnish IRC channe...

Re: A plea for direction.

Let's be frustrated together! As far as I am aware, Minetest is an horrible failure at any decent goal I could imagine for it. That's a bit rough isn't it? I have personally seen Minetest raise from nothing to likely tens of thousands of users and to an online community with many things happening ev...
