Re: Compiling minetest 0.3.1?

I tried to compile it myself and I also failed. The README gives these instructions: Install dependencies. Here's an example for Debian/Ubuntu: $ apt-get install build-essential libirrlicht-dev cmake libbz2-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg8-dev libxxf86vm-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libsqlite3-dev Download source, ...

Re: Post your videos!

what's the problem? The graphics are weird, the sounds are weird, and the gameplay is weird. The game feels like a strange alien version of Minecraft. When you play minecraft, the art-style, music, and complex gameplay make you feel like you're in a magical world, but when you play Minetest, it fee...

This game is so weird. It's hard to explain, but I think this video demonstrates how weird this game is. The sounds, the graphics, the gameplay. It's just weird. Not like Minecraft at all.

It's a little dark for my taste, but I'm using a TV that makes really dark colors completely black no matter how I adjust it.

A nyan I found playing with fractal mapgen settings. I don't have the coords or seed, so you just have to believe me.

Re: How does Minecraft sort semitransparent blocks?

Interesting, thanks. There's two rendering passes. Still doesn't explain how the semitransparent blocks are sorted, but because there are less of them there's more options.

Re: How does Minecraft sort semitransparent blocks?

Try googling, for example, I found this https://www.reddit.com/r/opengl/comments/2tpppb/minecraft_like_transparency_depth_sorting/ You did a better job googling than me. I only found "how to make transparent skins" and "sorting machines" lol EDIT: For water and clouds, the traditional methods of ha...

Re: Post your screenshots!

My favorite fractal mapgen so far! Interesting looking, vast, and playable.
fractal = 2
iterations = 13
scale = 1000, 500, 1000
julia_x = 0.35
julia_y = 0.3
julia_z = 0.1
julia_w = 0.1
Everything else default.

Re: Post your screenshots!

paramat, that post on the fractal forums that you posted, which prameters are required for the terrain in the first screenshot? I'll take a guess. It's one of the non-julia mandelbrot fractals (fractal = odd number) with what looks like about 1000 x and z scale and about 500 y scale. The tip of the...

How does Minecraft sort semitransparent blocks?

I know Minetest does not support semitransparent textures. AFAIK semitransparency is difficult because everything with a semitransparent textures needs to be sorted by distance when it's drawn. Does anyone know how Minecraft sorts its semitransparent blocks? The only solution I can imagine is recrea...

Lol, funny because I remember seeing an old post where someone was asking if there were any games that used fractal for procedurally generated content and nobody had any good examples. Now that there's a great example, they don't seem so interested.

Re: Post your screenshots!

I never thought fractal mapgen had such potential, it would probably get more attention if someone hosted a server with it. Me neither. I'd like to see a survival server on one of the crazier fractal settings lol The screenshots are amazing, and i love to see minetest terrain captured with such far...

Re: Post your screenshots!

Awesome fractals! Thanks. I recommend exploring the "Extreme Stringlands yourself. It's hard to do it justice. It's extremely tall and vast, but still possible to navigate if you wanted a hard survival map. You could increase the scale even more to make it more vast and bump up the iterations by 1 ...
