Re: The Sneak Glitch is NOT dead!

Many bugs would have been fixed by now if not for the glitch. Had to revert changes fixing many localplayer problems like sneak, because to get them in I'd probably have to code in emulation of that bug which would be ridiculous. Sounds pernicious. Something like that ought to be pulled out and rew...

Re: [Game] Exile 0.2.2

1. it isn’t economic. I must prioritize. Unless the project can help with my own (troubling!) economic circumstances it is becoming hard to justify the continued effort to push the project forward (I have a game now, flawed as it is, so hobby enjoyment alone isn't enough justification). 2. I keep g...

Re: [Mod] Natural slopes [naturalslopeslib]

Hey I've got an odd texture thing happening in Exile, some of the nodes' side textures are correct, and others just seem to stretch the top of the texture downwards:

Any ideas on what's going on?

Re: [Game] Exile 0.2.2

Quick updates: I fixed some minor bugs in farming code, but whatever was wrong with my crops was fixed by digging and replanting. Apparently their node timers were unset, and I don't know how that happened. Whatever caused it probably still lurks in there somewhere. I also fixed a crash in flora_sp...

Re: [Game] Exile 0.2.2

There's still some existing features in Exile that could probably be polished up. One in particular is how exhaustion/low energy works. The most noticeable sign for me is that you can't jump anymore, but for some reason, it seems to kick in at different energy values. I usually keep some sticks in ...

Re: [Game] Exile 0.2.2

Click it with an empty hand. If it's winter and you've got no tangkal fruit or other sources of water, you can melt a block of ice or snow by sitting it next to a fire. The fire will burn out to ash because of the proximity of the water, but you'll still end up with drinking water. If you've placed ...

Re: [Game] Exile 0.2.2

The failures probably cooled off too soon. If the fire goes out before they're done, they will shatter and collapse. This can also happen if your fire is wavering near the threshold, it'll heat up and start to fire, then cool down and shatter. A large campfire is pretty mandatory. The fire system co...

Try following a redstone tutorial with mesecons once! (spoiler: it will not work by any means....) Really?

Yeah, they will work vertically, but only vertical and adjacent. Not directly vertical. So _~ will work, and ~_ will work, but = will not. This is what bugs me about mesecons, it's designed to be 100% compatible with redstone, including the really stupid things. It means you can clone a machine from...

Re: Is there anything analogous to the FTB team here?

The reason there are so many good and advanced mods for Minecraft is that I think it's more the case that Minecraft has like 10 or 20 times the userbase, which means (in a naive estimate, discounting the relative difficulty of modding, which favors Minetest) 10 or 20 times the number of people work...

The problem here, as I see it, is primarily that you are using your own definition of "free" and "non-free" rather than the commonly accepted ones used in software licensing, and then insulting people who use those definitions. You're within your rights if you want to use your ow...

WTFPL was created as joke license and it is highly discouraged to use it because it lacks fundamental licensing information.
It also lacks any warranty clause. "do WTF you want" includes "blame the author for any problems and then sue him in court."

Maybe not standard to minetest in general, but it should probably get folded into 3D Armor.
