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

No clear focus - Yes there are road maps and discussions and many plans on how to go forward. The problem isn't the lack of them, it's that there are to many. I don't suggest we should discard all but one, but change the process by how the road map is formed. The principle mentioned above does help...

Re: Is it legal to sell Minetest as is?

I have reported it but never received a response. The problem is using our name, rather than selling Minetest

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

Creating a fork because you disagree with direction isn't necessary hostile. It's hostile if your intensions are hostile, or if you perform hostile behaviour like spamming or relicensing to avoid backporting. Forking is a natural part of open source, licenses allow derivative versions. I support imp...

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

Core Developers step down from directing the engine roadmap, and is delegated to the community poll a few times a year to gauge interest. I've included community comments from the roadmap brainstorm when drafting the roadmap . This process can be repeated when needed GitHub Issues becomes a bug tra...

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC

celeron55 is contactable via PM and for admin tasks, but he's not active otherwise I last tried Matrix 3 years ago, the client was called riot and the matrix.org home instance was very very laggy. I wasn't impressed by Riot or the lag. I imagine that's better now. Can anyone recommend a home instanc...

Re: New project managment proposal

It doesn't make sense to separate core development and PR review, as the core dev team's main responsibility is to review pull requests. Any contributor can do programming/development, being able to approve and merge pull requests is what sets a dev apart from a contributor. (Core devs do also happe...

Re: Getting tired of it

Another sad example at Minetest: the implementation of videos on nodes in a PR was recently rejected, for absurd reasons such as viruses (nonsense responses). False, it was halted due to not having the prerequisites in media loading, and due to the heavy additional dependency. Nothing to do with vi...

Re: Proposal: make Matrix official as much as IRC and remove Discord bridge

The reason the bridge was created was because the 1000 milestone was reached, and a case was made to celeron55. It's not supposed to be an argument, not should it be something we need to lock into

That's a really weak argument. According to this logic, Minetest official social account should be on Twitter instead of Mastodon, yet it's on the latter

Re: Proposal: migrate from IRC to Element

I mean, if core devs decided to bridge it with Discord, why not considering something which is philosophically better than Discord and that could act as a real alternative? Because the Discord server has over 1000 users 2. Bridge Matrix to the IRC, ensuring that neither platform is isolated and giv...

You can use the creative mod to create custom tabs. Also, the order in the creative inventory will probably be alphabetical based on item name or based on registration order, I forget

Also, this game is super dead. Why do you want it? You can get 0.3.1 from the Minetest GitHub, and there's also https://gitlab.com/voxelands/voxelands

Yes, this is perfectly fine and allowed by our license. Our license allows commercial use, but requires you to ensure that any users are able to get the source code. If you don't modify the engine, then it's super easy - there's already a link in the Credits tab, and information in the readme. Mods ...

So, in an attempt to turn this thread productive: what can be done to increase organisation? What do open source projects similar to us do? Godot is considerably larger than Minetest, and has a few paid employers, but something can be learned from their project manager role: https://godotengine.org/...

We're heading towards not including any games in Minetest by default, and instead having a list of available games be the first thing you see when downloading minetest. Or perhaps we may keep MTG, but we will have the list as the first thing you see. I think ContentDB is better than having prepackag...
