Re: Real Problems Since Update

I had a problem with 52 and it turned out my adjusting the lighting settings made a black mess so it's probably some conflict with the mod and the newer versions lighting

Re: Could not solve puzzle: Minetest / Multiplayer / Own WLAN

127.0.0.1 will connect you to yourself. I think he wants the host device ip on his router, ie 192.168.1.2. Then the client would connect to that ip. Plus he needs incoming connection udp 30000 default enabled. Maybe even port forwarding on the router.

Re: Promoting Minetest

I've heard multi-players complain about the Android client. I guess there's nothing official for Apple? Seems like the 2 most popular operating systems are the least active with developers. Changing this would obviously bring more users and developers.

Re: Minetest Server Opportunity

Maybe better off without some stupid admin ruining their own server like so many do on "survival"
I recently installed 52 and went back to 4.17 because I didn't like any servers. Too bulky (100 plus mods), Admin gave friends creative on "survival" or other stupid things.

Re: high network data use

1024 KB / 60s * 8(KB/kb) = ~136 kbps. This is clearly more data than a 56 kbps modem could process. No client settings will reduce the network traffic. Change the server settings to update less mapblocks (disable mods), or move less entities (player limit, disable mobs mods). That's unfortunate bec...

high network data use

I disable fancy stuff and reduced view to 20 but minetest uses nearly 1 MB of data a minute. Is this normal and what can I do to use less data on multiplayer?

Re: Swords seem obsolete.

In the default game, swords... are kind of useless. Yeah, I know there is PVP, but not everyone likes PVP. As far as I know, mobs aren't in the default game anymore, which makes swords kind of useless in singleplayer. Swords do break plants faster, but other then that and PVP situations, they just ...

I complained about lighting not long ago. I don't play MC but a family member does and there's no total darkness. I've tried other games http://www.classicube.net/download/ and same. To me it's bad enough that I went back to 4.17.1
