how do i install this?
Mainmenu > Content > Browse Online Content.
Search for "Frame", and then click install.

You'll then need to enable it on a world. Do that in the configure menu shown by clicking Configure with a world selected

Re: There are too many PRs

Has there been any strategy tried out so far? It all looks like business as usual to me … It seems we still have many open PRs around that have no chance of ever getting merged, yet they stay open forever. We've done review sprints, where a few of us have spent more time than usual trying to get PR...

Re: How to save contents to a external file then load it later

The error is because you are only allowed to write to the world folder ( minetest.get_worldpath() ). There's also a syntax error in the code snippet - [] indicates that something is optional - io.open(filename, "w") will open a handle. You should avoid reading and writing to files manually in minete...

Re: Is there a way to temporarily make the players hand stronger?

You can change the tool capability of the hand at any time, either by overriding that specific item or by replacing the item. The ItemStack `set_tool_capabilities` method allows you to set the caps of a specific item. The hand inventory list contains a single slot, which is the player's hand item. T...

This would also apply to any other ContentDB. And as that CDB wouldn't be official, you'd have to either distribute your own Minetest client or require the users to use other means of installation. Good luck.
You can use the contentdb_url setting to change the server used to any other instance

Because having sexual content results in certain difficulties to the person that hosts it. I don't want to run into those difficulties, and I don't think that it's in the community's best interest to allow such content

Re: Content database for in-menu installer - add your things!

Wuzzy is not being petty, and I agree with most of what he said

Allowing non-free content but penalising it is a compromise in an attempt to please both parties. I would prefer to not have any non-free content whatsoever
