Re: WTFPL to be banned from Content DB soon

It sounds like you've never worked in a school in your life. I can confirm in parts of America they take that sort of thing very seriously, because angry parents can be a big problem.

Re: WTFPL to be banned from Content DB soon

So you removed WTFPL because some teachers complained about a word in the license title instead of removing it for the horrible, horrible legal issues this pseudolicense causes? "Causes abstract legal issues" and "could cost me my job" are both solid reasons for it to be removed...

Re: Post your screenshots!

it still manages to make me go "But why though" a lot. I think because somebody thought it was terribly important to make it work exactly like redstone, weird, confusing quirks and all. Personally I kind of wish somebody would fork it and rationalize it into a new mod. It would break comp...

Re: WTFPL to be banned from Content DB soon

The harm isn't imaginary -- a teacher who installs such software could lose their job due to common school policies. For a license that does diddly squat versus a simple "public domain" declaration, that's bad. It has no reason to even exist. The word "ban" is a bit hyperbolic in...

Re: Does the current Minetest seem too easy?

"No true Scotsman", huh? ;-) He didn't make that sort of argument at all, he gave a specific definition of what a game is, one which is well-known and which excludes that sort of play. That's very different from "yeah that's not a real game tho." A No True Scotsman is a kind of ...

Re: More quality videos of Minetest!

I think something getting lost in here is that apart from whether or not they should ape the flashy kid-oriented Minecraft videos, (they shouldn't!) I feel like the Minetest video community could still improve their craft (heh) in places. Like I don't wanna point fingers, but some folks could do wit...

Isn't this a case where you were downloading an outdated version, not the most current one?
But yeah, I feel you there, the github -> gitlab switch bit me too.

Try it with plain wood. You should be able to convert acacia planks into regular wooden planks by putting two (stacks) of them on the crafting grid.

Re: Post your videos!

Cool video, rgspro. A suggestion for your custom blocks: set up the texture so you have three colored sides in a U, and then three white sides in a U. That way you can rotate it to have two of the same color on opposite sides or one of each, or cover the corners or edges of a wall in all one color o...

Re: [Mod] Equivalent Exchange [v1.1] [equivalent_exchange]

It's attempting to get the item data for the nyancat, which isn't in minetest anymore. For a quick local fix, edit equivalent_exchange/emcs.lua so it reads:
Code: Select all
--      nyancat = 3786750,
--      nyancat_rainbow = 3786750,

Commenting out that entry will prevent the crash.
