Re: What exactly is this mese stuff anyway?

From the wiki : The origin of the block is just plain random. In the early days of the game I [celeron55] needed to add something to be mined from the ground, and ended up with this humorous nonsense block, and haven't removed it from the game from since. Mese actually means "msn messenger"...

Re: Ganme Keeps Restarting

Hello and welcome! 0.4.13 is really old. You should update to 0.4.16. The packages provided by the Ubuntu repositories may be out of date; using the PPA is the easiest option. Just follow the instructions on that page, then execute: sudo apt install minetest If you still have errors after updating, ...

I disagree. This isn't facebook or Twitter. No one comes here for validation, at least I hope not. If you think some one's idea is "+1" but can't articulate why or improve on the idea,I think it's best to keep it to yourself. This is just my opinion of course. Go check out the last 3 page...

Re: How do you run a lua script without a trigger?

Use `register_globalstep` or `after`.

Re: [Mod] Internationalization Library [intllib]

The boilerplate was split for that very reason: so in case it needs to be updated (it probably won't be anytime soon), all you have to do is download the file from the repo which can be done from a shell script with `wget` or `curl` (the raw URL is at the top of the file). The fact that `.txt` trans...

Re: [Mod] Extended Ban v2 [xban2]

Yes it is. The database has no circular references or anything hidden, so simply removing a name or IP from an entry disassociates it from the "user".

Re: [RANT]Why do people not read my messages properly???!

I can't say anything about your other points, but regarding the birthday topic, it does not belong here. It used bad language, lots of it; it started to attract low quality posts; it touches a sensitive topic not suitable for the audience here. So it was trashed. Take that kind of stuff elsewhere.

Re: get luaentity name

You can get the "name" of an object with `object:get_luaentity().name`. You can check if a pointed thing is for an object by checking its `type`, and then get the object with the `ref` field: if pointed_thing.type == "object" then local obj = pointed_thing.ref local name = obj:ge...

Re: [16px] Ambiguity

You can set a per-player textured skybox, but that requires Lua. I don't recall if you can edit the default sky via textures (you can override sun.png and moon.png).

Re: Need help updating minetest.

Have you tried the minetestdevs/stable PPA?

There's also the minetestdevs/daily-builds PPA if you are feeling like it, but do note that it may be unstable.

You can use texture overrides to control how you want the grass to look.
