How would that work in multiplayer? The camera is moved locally. Any other players would simply be rendered relative to that point. SO, if my character is at 100,100,100 in Minetest space(camera is 0,0,0 in Irrlicht space), a player in 101, 102, 103 in Minetest space would just be rendered as 1,2,3...

That's what I actually meant: the distance from the origin to the corner is half the distance between opposite corners.

A couple of the times I've been on this server I haven't been able to leave the chunk containing the spawn location. Is that because my internet connection is slow or is there another reason?

So the distance from the origin to the corner is sqrt(31000 ^ 2 * 2) = 4384. In other words the distance between opposite corners of the minetest map is only slightly longer than my daily run in real life. Somehow it feels much bigger during the actual playing.

You'd need to write a Kernel with Multitasking and module loading support, drivers for USB, VESA, Network(Network stack that supports at least IPv4, DHCP client), Network Card, maybe Wireless Adapter, Keyboard and other things your computer might have. Then you would need to make a complete c and c...

To make a server public: 1: Go to your router settings and make sure port 30000 (or whatever port you're actually using) is forwarded to your computer 2: Decide whether you want to run the server from the GUI or from the CLI. GUI is easier but it only runs when you are logged in. If GUI: 3: Go to th...

and a lot of players seem to just mine random blocks off of the landscape leaving ugly marks Fortunately on my server there isn't much in the way of ugly marks. That might be helped by the fact I've left randomized spawning on, so most people would be randomly mining in slightly different areas. We...

Observation about people on public servers

I've been running a part-time public server for a week (the computer it's running on isn't up 24/7 and even then my ISP is weird about incoming connections) or so and I've noticed something: the vast majority of people who log on just dig stuff. Unless there are more structures that I haven't found ...

This could be another case of the wiki being out of date. There is another problem with the crafting system: if a crafting recipie has a "replacements" field the replacement only happens if there is no leftover of the item being replaced. For example: with Vanessa E's coloredwood mod: you can lose v...

Not sure if it's related or not but sometimes when I'm in the minetest game (not the menus and not when there's any gui on the screen) the camera will keep drifting up and left. Usually it can be fixed by closing the client and starting it again, but sometimes I just ignore it.

I use linux. When I had a file called favoriteservers.txt file it made my client freeze as soon as the window had been created, so no chance to connect to the server.

Speaking of the favorite server list: how do you add servers to it? I've only managed to make my client freeze on launch with my uninformed attempts at writing a favoriteservers.txt

You can create a temporary public server from the client via the "Advanced" tab and the checkbox "public", but it shuts down as soon as you close the client. If you want the server to run without the client then use the command line server and set these options in minetest.conf: server_announce = 1 ...
