Re: Are there bad seeds?

If finding seed that gives a nice spawn location is the issue then Amidst-for-Minetest is useful for quickly previewing maps https://github.com/Treer/Amidst-for-Minetest I'm suprised it's hasn't been mentioned already.

Re: Discussion regarding Minecraft map to Minetest world conversion.

Region files can be converted in parallel, actually since region files are independent of each other you could use multiple machines to do the conversion and merge the outputted map databases. Might be losing a bit of the "ease of use" in that case though :) Signs yes, I forgot to mention those. The...

Discussion regarding Minecraft map to Minetest world conversion.

It seems that there has been an increase in interest in writing minecraft map to minetest world converters of late, possibly spurred on by the fact that de facto converter mcimport cant convert maps made with the latest versions of minecraft (version 1.14.4+). Since I am working on an (unreleased) ...

I appreciate the attention to keeping a solution going to solve this maintenance problem.

Re: Convert Minecraft maps to Minetest worlds

Ah, I see. It sounds like it's really about finding a mature library that can parse as many different minecraft world versions as possible. Oh, cool! Java isn't my favourite language, but it's probably worth waiting to check your port out first before writing my own (if you open source it when you'...

Currently I'm aware of these 2 minecraft → minetest importers: - https://github.com/minetest-tools/mcimport/ - https://github.com/jonajames/mc2mt Neither of them seem to particularly fast or stable. mcimport does appear to be able to convert some worlds, but appears to crash on others. mc2mt crashe...

Re: Convert Minecraft maps to Minetest worlds

Does not seem to work for MC 1.14.4 worlds: Interesting, MC 1.14.4 is storing biome data in 256 long integers instead of the 256 integers that would be expected in maps from that period, that's possibly the cause of the issue. I'd not seen this documented anywhere so it seems you may be the first t...

Re: mc2mt: Minetest map conversion tool

They are not! The param2 value seems to be kinda random and changes from one tree to another and sometimes even in the same tree. Maybe I made an error in writing the block format to the database, but I don't know how to debug it inside the game. And if a mistake was made in writing the zipped bloc...

Re: [Server] Just Test Tribute (NYE Countdown Celebration!)

Just to nitpick a little - there is no year 0 in the modern calendar so the first year started 1st Jan 1. Which means that 2020 is the final year of the decade not the first year :)

No bad mobs are spawning on new sections of the map, some can still be found in caves where the MapBlocks were generated a few days ago. Also I'm starting to think no lava spawns on the map at all, I usually would have found some by now. As for mods, any chance you can add trampoline from x-decor, I...
