Re: [Conspiracy Theory] Minetest development coopted.

Hah :D You certainly have some good points. What are some specific examples, though? Which "legacy" compatibility features are you talking about in particular, and how are they interfering with new development? Which bugfixes are you talking about in particular? Maybe I can shed some light...

Re: [Coders needed] Colored light sources

Guys, I have a better solution to all of this. First of all, the day/night "light banks" are kind of silly - it's a feature that sounded good in theory at the time I guess but turned out to be not so useful in practice. We can omit that. Further, we can decouple light information from the ...

I do remember saying that, but probably it only applies to interpreted Lua.

Re: working on DarkAge

Hi Blert2112,

The most recent version of Minetest has new sheet ore parameters that gives modders the power to create sheet ore exactly as in your mod.

Re: Minetest Crashes on Asus ME301T Tablet

Hey Biggvs,

Is there a box with text that shows up when Minetest goes back to the main screen?
It would be very helpful if you copied that information here on the forum.

Thanks.

Re: Server crash, server.cpp:509, linux x84_64, 0.4.12-dev

Amadin, how often did you get this error when it did happen to you?
Also could you share the modifications you made to your mods?

Macro line continuation style?

Not all of Minetest's code style is well-defined at this point. For 95% of matters we defer to the Linux kernel code style, since it seems to be somewhat of a standard among open source projects, is low friction, and tends to make a lot of sense. However, there is a problem with the Linux recommende...

Lua PerlinNoiseMap memory efficiency improvements

Hello Minetest Modding Community, Recently I've had some complaints about extremely high memory usage in mods that make extensive use of Perlin noise maps (core.get_perlin_map/PerlinNoiseMap). I investigated and found that the most memory-intensive part of noise is, by far, placing the resulting com...

Re: The game is too poorly optimized.

Minetest is the one that edits the texture of a node - in CPU - to do lighting. Don't assign the blame to other people. Minetest contains a lot of broken code. Oh wow, fuck off. Minetest's contains less "broken code" than most other open source projects because it's actively developed and...

Modder feedback needed: MT Schematic (.mts) file paths

To the people currently using Minetest schematics (NOT worldedit schematics): is anybody having problems with the file path? Currently, schematics are loaded relative to the current working directory, which seems wrong to me but I haven't heard any complaints about this particular thing. Is the sche...

Re: Fate of Mapgen V7

Okay, it's settled. Aside from giving V7 caves an upgrade (V5 cave routes with V6 large_caves) it's going to stay pretty much stable.
Any major new development will happen in V8.

Re: [0.4.8] LuaVoxelManipulator

I was wrong when I said that, you were always able to omit z from chulens. Nothing special needs to be coded for that.
Also as of the 0.4.11 release, the size parameters a noisemap object was created with has no bearing on the rest of the parameters.

Re: Quality Assurance measures

My suggestion would be to remove the code review, but keep the "2 devs need to agree" rule for features, like we currently have. I would also encourage that the people who want to add the features talk to devs before they start coding it, to prevent unnecessary work for them (i.e. core de...

Re: Fate of Mapgen V7

Note to all: I am *not* asking what you're looking for in a mapgen, or the next mapgen, I am simply asking if V7 is used widely enough to make modifying it a bad idea. Mapgen suggestions should go into a separate thread. But the thing is, you don't need to make suggestions anymore, you could just do...

Re: Quality Assurance measures

I don't understand you anymore. First you say that approving pull requests without looking closely at the code is bad since it might introduce bugs, and in the next sentence you say that reverting is easy and you imply that the dev branch doesn't need to be as stable as it currently is. No, the ide...

Fate of Mapgen V7

I suppose the current terrain output of Mapgen V7 isn't too horrible, but I would like to make some major changes. V7 was never formally released, but it somehow got added to the main menu selection box and users began to unironically use it. Since people now rely on V7's output, I'm wondering if I ...

Re: Quality Assurance measures

You recently directly commited a change to upstream which hid warnings. This also hid some bugs, and should of been done in your cmake/gcc installation if it annoyed you, there are settings to hide it you can change without changing Minetest. I'd just like to point out this is false. The warning in...

Re: Release Engineering

Are they? You mentioned “Minetest hanging in a state perpetual bugginess”. A lot of those pull requests eliminate bugs. Wouldn’t it help to merge them before the feature freeze to prevent the buggyness? Bugfix releases should be done more often but may need at least two branches. We had to add hack...
