Re: Post your modding questions here

How can I write to my in-game console (that appears by pressing [T] , [F10] or [/] ) some info from my mod? it is for the sake of debugging code. Commands print() , minetest.log() , minetest.debug() do not write to in-game console, but to debug.txt file. Command print() does not work all — it does ...

As if software with version number with no zero in front is not developing. Not so funny joke, really.

What's the point of that zero?

Re: Post your modding questions here

I looked through this article about texture and I have a question. How can I make particular texture more contrast? Modifier [brighten makes texture bright (black becomes grey, grey becomes almost white). It's not about increasing contrast. Is there a direct way or some workaround to make texture mo...

Re: Rules of Minetest version numbers?

There is no need for three numbers at all, especially when one of them is always 0 (zero).

Just two numbers is enough — <major_improvements>.<minor_improvements/bugfixes>

Examples: 4.16, 4.17, 5.0, 5.1,…

Mostly good points though

It's not so important how to name these thoughts. The content is important.

Minetest book of complaints and suggestions

We need: • New name for game Many words were already said about why current name is a crap. In short, "test" part implies we do not actually play game, but we test and debug. In other words, our game is not about digging dirt but about digging C/Lua code looking for bugs . Minetest name l...

Re: Is writing minetest in Java possible?

Hi, id like to know if its possible to make working mods and subgames written in Java. You want to make minetest closer than minecraft or just make slower than windows XP on a nokia phone?

Now MT developer is a man-orchestra. This is not good. That's why the impressions of MT — not so much. And MT is...

Re: Post your modding questions here

As I understand, mod's name can't be group cuz I saw recipes like { {"group:stone"}, {"default:stick"}, {"default:stick"}, } ... for stone shovel. group name is a reserved name? If so, what are reserved names in the game? What if someone make mod called group ?

Re: Is writing minetest in Java possible?

Relax. MT is written in C++. Nobody being sane will rewrite the code into Java. What I would like to see in MT in future is the ability to write mods in Python, very convenient and powerful scripting language, at least some subset of Python, that allows to be embedded as Lua. But unlikely it will be...
