Re: Post your mod requests/ideas here

Washed-out concrete. Also infamous amongst our German users as Waschbeton . Think prefab_redo meets The Seventies. For those who believe normal concrete isn't nearly ugly enough and too timeless. And you think cobbleboxes are bad. I'd like to see a raw and a polished variant, both also as tiles with...

Re: Should we "advertise" Minetest better ?

People need an incentive to play Minetest. It can't be the numbers (Minecraft is more succesful with all of them). It can't be open source (in real-life players actually do not care). It can't be it's freeness ("I can get a cracked account whenever I want and play Minecraft for free, too"). It can'...

Re: (Just for fun) Why Minetest Game will never be realistic

You can erect a huge building on the surface and dig out a basement underneath it afterwards with no cave-in risk, even if the basement is bigger than the actual building. In fact, you can add pillars inside the basement after you've dug it out, but you don't have to. You can build towers, skyscrap...

Cows roaming free everywhere. And they let you milk them. Ditto sheep that let you shear them. One cow gives a full bucket of milk within a split-second. Wolves never come in packs. In fact, you can domesticise them with ease: Feed them, and they'll turn into fully obedient dogs. Tortoises can jump...

If I may make a suggestion: Something should happen to moss if the tree node underneath it is mined away. Right now it simply stays afloat. Maybe leaf_decay might be a good idea since we don't really have any use for moss right now anyway, at least not to my knowledge. Or it could simply fall like s...

Re: Help me please to move from minecraft to minetest

The main difference between Minecraft and Minetest is: Minecraft is intended to be a 100% complete game with all your heart's desires pre-installed and then some. Modding is optional, and as far as I know, it can still be quite hackish. Minetest, however, isn't a game at all. It's a modding platform...
