Sometimes it's hard to interpret what people really mean in their messages. As for performance, from what I see it's indeed a number of drawcalls pro...

Re: Trying to implement Shadow Mapping

Hex is offering an (reasoned) opinion and does not speak for Minetest. Personally I think these are a client side setting, but that (likewise) is my opinion.

Re: [mod]ranged weapons[2018.08.22] [0.3] [rangedweapons]

Some recent comments are gone due to the outage. As promised here's a functionally identical version of the mod, but with uses of tight loops to checks for right mouse button clicks replaced by on_secondary_use .
