You can get it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/minetest-utilities/ - let me know if you have questions...

Have you looked at the "more blocks" mods?

Re: Help: Setting up, running, and maintaining a server

If I was to find another mod I liked (say, one that included a bunch of new building block nodes), would I need to create a new world on the server for that? Or could I just install the mod, and the server will automatically push it out to the clients on their next login? It depends on the mod. One...

Re: Help: Setting up, running, and maintaining a server

You can set whatever port you like. Its in the minetest.conf file Yes your server will show up in the server browser if you publish it, also in the minetest.conf file. If you want to allow only certain people to join it you can set a password they need to know. All the mods are done server-side, th...

Re: [Modpack] Villages modpack (contains mg_villages)

I'm aware of the problems with the diffrent village_*-mods. I'm currently working on the replacement mechanism and doing some code cleanup behind the scenes. Once that's done, the diffrent village_*-mods will work again. They will be added to the contentdb the same way as mg_villages, handle_schema...

Re: How to do a proper backup of live server on linux?

"due to the files (usually the world map) changing while being backed up" Just a guess, longer delay would prevent the map changing? Perhaps there's a way to stall the entire conf during a backup? server_map_save_interval = 5.3 What would I change it to only save the map to once per minute?

How to do a proper backup of live server on linux?

I think I have seen this a couple times where a supposedly successful backup can not be restored from due to the files (usually the world map) changing while being backed up. When starting minetestserver I get this: Screenshot from 2020-08-15 11-07-26.png Is there a way to force it to rebuild that d...

Free shared Minetest server

I have a server that is not using it's potential and I would like to offer it for use as a Minetest server to someone who wants a server of their own. The difference between this and my commercial servers is that it will be used for hosting a BBS or MUD for another user as well. If you are intereste...

Re: I have a free Minetest server available to first respond

Does whoever takes the server get to choose their own mods? What about a completely different subgame? Can they upload their own map or is it limited to whatever map you've provided? Do you get everything that you would get if you were paying for the regular service or is this service limited in so...

I've used her service before and at that time it was full root access to a vps. I had someone compile for me and I uploaded and installed mods and skins via ssh. Good for noob or tech savvy.

The demo server is up, you can get it if you want. Search for "Demo Server" to find it in the client's server list... If you take it you can of course regenerate the world, I just set it up to show what comes with it out of the box :)
