Re: Directory policy exception

Have you tried using symbolic links on Linux ? or if you use Windows I think there is a way to make links between files as well. I do not make mods so I do not know much about that, it is just a suggestion.

Re: Peripheral Biomes: Share your opinion!

Interesting, then you got a huge project underway. The abyss biome suggested by Gab888 sounds awesome, if you could implement it in some way that would be nice. Also, the crater field biome is something I have never seen before in minetest, that sounds really good. Have you considered biomes in the ...

Re: Biomes Mod Vote

Those are a lot of biomes, are you planning to do them all ? Many of those have already been covered in the default Minetest Game and mods like ethereal and dfcaverns. I think the most unique ones in that list are: Corruption biomes Volcanic biomes Prairie Crater fields Crystal biomes Black peaks/mo...

Re: Some questions from a new player

Welcome to Minetest ! Yes, there are many mods in development, and games as well but those are fewer, you can check on the mods section of this forum to see current activity. The engine is continuously being worked on, and new stable versions are released every 5 or 6 months, maybe more, depending o...

Re: FPS problem!

Are you really running a Pentium 2 !?

If your CPU does not get 100% usage your GPU is the bottleneck as others stated, what resolution are you playing on ?

Try playing at 1024x768 or even lower than that

Quest for max performance on 5.4.0 server with Pentium 4

Ok, I am really tired, I have been compiling and benchmarking minetest for the last 13 hours, it was fun though, and I got very interesting results, so I guess it would nice to share them. This is going to be a long post, so get ready. A few days ago I was reading about compiler optimization flags a...

Re: Help: Setting up, running, and maintaining a server

Sorry, the default value for server_unused_data_timeout is 29, try with a value of 5 because you have very little RAM. Interesting, also I had the impression that 5.4.0 uses more memory, so it may turn out to be true. On a possibly related note, I have never had a problem logging in quickly; it take...

Hello jp, I am testing this mod on my server running minetest 5.4.0 commit d1ec5117d9095c75aca26a98690e4fcc5385e98c, so far it looks really nice, it is not bloated, as an inventory should be.

Re: Help: Setting up, running, and maintaining a server

Farming redo always makes the server show that warning because that mod is designed to completely override "redo" the farming mod from minetest_game, so do not worry for that. I did notice these in the log when the Minetest service restarted after reboot.. Again, this is normal and means t...

Re: Hi guys can anyone please figure out what's wrong with this issue I am facing while connecting to a local server

Yes, it is possible for players to play with others on different platforms (that is why minetest is awesome), if you are getting connection timed out, make sure you are using the correct IP address and port, since you are on the same network you should not have problems connecting to the other compu...

Re: What is a good creative inventory in your opinion?

This is not really a creative inventory, nor an inventory itself, so maybe I am a little off-topic, but almost every crafting system relies on a GUI where you have to drag the cursor around, have you ever imagined a CLI-based crafting interface !? That would be like the Linux of crafting systems

Re: Help: Setting up, running, and maintaining a server

The difference between the minetest-server package and the minetest package is that minetest-server is compiled with only the server component so you cannot use it as a client and it automatically registers a systemd service along with a configuration file for the server to start running it quickly ...
