Having a single "master" server is a stupid idea at any rate; any punter can create a server, hook it in and use ban privs to block others from connecting to any server thanks to a shared blacklist. You obviously have not read my protocol, since only the admin of the master server can add bans to t...

Why not? That's how things were working for a long time (look at minecraft). That "server list" has no advantages over server's topic on this forum. Minecraft is not a reference, I don't propose features to minetest just because it works with minecraft, but because I think minetest would benefit fr...

how would a newcomer know what server to join without knowing it's IP address ? Using "Servers" forum section or some monitoring service (like servers.minetest.ru) Which is retarded: why would you ask somebody to fire up his browser and actually *look* for a server to play on, when the game could g...

Just no. Minetest is not a FPS game where you can switch over several servers without losing anything. The point of a master server is to list available servers, how would a newcomer know what server to join without knowing it's IP address ? It provides a list of servers from which you can pick the...

Offtopic: Welcome back to the forums! Thanks. though i think mutualising blacklists is a terrible idea. I say that because douchebags like segfault have had ban privileges in the past. That's not what I had in mind, I was thinking that the master server admin could add well known griefers/cheaters ...

Feature proposal: master server

Hi. I've been playing minetest for a while now, and I think the game lacks a way for players to easily switch servers, or simply interact with said servers. The "master server" is a concept that has been largely used and implemented in several multiplayer games (of any type, e.g. FPS), and although ...

Small request: When hatch is open, it has no collision (not walkable). When closed, it is climbable. It feels much better IMO :) If it was climbable when open, you would be able to go through it. Moreover, it's climbable when it's open because of that boundary box problem (it makes much more sense).

The hatches mod uses a special variable (param2), and it shouldn't be (but it still works because I overwrite it with a good value). The thing is: you can't use it for wall mounted blocks such as ladders and doors because that same param2 variable is used to determine the orientation/position of the...

there is something that bothers me about this. Explosions are cool etc, but, in my opinion they should not leave a perfect sferical shape on surface. Its 'unrealistic', they should leave irregular shapes... Maybe it's something hard to code, idk, what do you people think? It's not hard to code, but...

Nice mod! May I use it for my mesecon mod, so that hatches can be controlled by mesecons? Absolutely. Great! Could you put the texture to the upper side of block? So when you are walking on it, there were no empty space between you and visible texture. In fact this is due to a limitation of minetes...

I don't want to sound harsh, but all you did was disabling the climbable attribute of open hatches, which was there on purpose..

Great mod! Thanks! There's a small bug in it, when digging a placed hatch there seem to be two different types of hatch. At least I've gotten two stacks that havent been combinable.

Could you package everything into a .zip file? That would make it easier for everyone else.
