Re: Minetest Version 0.5 for Linux?

There is no 0.5 version.

Minetest version jumped from 0.4.17 to 5.0.0.

Current version is 5.3.0, you have all needed information for installing it on Linux (depending on your distribution) here: https://www.minetest.net/downloads/

Re: [Map] Map [Map]

If you want minimap without restriction, simply disable (actually remove) map mod from minetest_game.

On a gameplay point of view, I totally agree with Astrobe.

Re: How to get an inventory rendering of a mesh or nodebox?

"item_image[]" and "item_image_button[]" uses a 3D scene to render items.

There is a PR that aims to render these item stuff to bitmap but not (yet) merged: https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/10003

If this is the case, what happens when someone wants to create a game which does not use "stone", and wishes to use "rock" instead or, maybe no stone-like sounds at all?
Yes, in general, the question would be: what is a "default" sound ?

I like Wuzzy's suggestion very much.

HUDS like the hotbar, health & breath meters, & the crosshair should be defined by games, not by the engine. removing them is really annoying and not all games will want them.
Totally agree with you. Minimap is about to move to Lua HUD, the rest should come... one day.

Re: Too many 0.4.17 servers

But this doesn't answer my question: WHY are there so many servers stuck with ancient 0.4.17? My guess (server owners could confirm or infirm) is that most players use Android forks stuck in 0.4.x versions. They are so numerous that some server owners prefers running 0.4.17 and have much more playe...

Re: Changing a nodes definition at runtime?

If you could change node definition on the fly, it would change all nodes of this type. If you want to change a simple ocurence of a node, then changed stuff could not go in definition and has to be stored on a per node basis (IE in metadata). Sure it lacks some flexibility, especially about texture...

Re: Custom API function causing segfaults ... Please help?

When I cast the u64 to a char*, it's not generating a new char* that holds the string representation of the integer. Instead, it's using the value of the u64 as the address of a pointer. Is that correct? It certainly would explain the segfault. Exactly, you fool the processor telling it a char stri...

Re: Custom API function causing segfaults ... Please help?

const char * digits = (char*)numeric_seed; That looks quite weird. numeric_seed is a u64 and you cast it to a char pointer (so pointing to kind of random memory area). If you want to have the string representation of your u64 (ie "123456789" for example), you should use sprintf function to do that....

Re: The future of Minetest

I totally agree with #4 lack of vision. I hope work will be done soon to fill this lack. It's essential to know what MTE should and should not be, in a detailed way. MTE is supposed to be a generic voxel game engine but is still full of MinetestGame specific stuff.

Or, to put it another way, is there a way to make a specific node completely ignore another specific node? I hope that makes sense.
No, the basic thing is : you have only one node at a position. It's like a 3D array holding one value (the node type) in each cell.
