I'm running Gentoo Linux and I had done a big update this week, so that might be how I had compiled the two with different versions of libpng. I recompiled both irrlicht and minetest and now the textures work properly. I guess my mistake was assuming that irrlicht had been recompiled after the libpn...

libpng mismatch

When I start the game I get a whole bunch of errors like: LOAD PNG: Internal PNG create read struct failure : /home/watts/minetest/celeron55-minetest-569156b/data/clienttextures/menubg.png Could not load texture: /home/watts/minetest/celeron55-minetest-569156b/bin/../data/clienttextures/menubg.png l...

Irrlicht is getting support for this kind of thing, but it apparently isn't quite done yet. When Irrlicht gets unicode support, so will Minetest. See this thread: http://celeron.55.lt/~celeron55/minetest/forum/viewtopic.php?id=95

To see more into the distance, add "enable_farmesh=1" to your mintest.conf file.

Maybe we should make some "community chests" where people can freely leave/take materials.

OK, Looks legit. The only other thing I'd try it to move those options to earlier in the file, just above an option that you can demonstrate is working. If that still doesn't work, then it must be a real bug.

@neko259: It is easy to get mixed up with config files. I suggest that you first check the output messages to see what path the server is reading the config file from. If that checks out, then post your config file here and maybe we will spot an error.

Celeron55, dude, chill out. At least you don't have it as bad as Notch. Look at it this way: You can always ignore "stupid" ideas, but at least with this thread, they won't be cluttering up the rest of the forum. I understand that this is *your* playground, and everyone is grateful for you having sh...

Sounds pretty good. If I may offer one criticism: you are trying too hard to make the music sound interesting and I think it would fit the game better if you tried to make it more relaxing. Slow it down and make it more sparse and subtle.

2) Irrlicht on OS X is weird. If you launch it from terminal, it does not receive keyboard input. Keyboard input goes straight to the terminal. When I run Minetest from a terminal on Gentoo Linux, I can see the cursor blinking in the Minetest GUI, but keyboard input goes to the terminal. I have to ...

You mean, kind of like a sign? But that the block it is attached to can't be opened or mined until the lock/sign is removed, which requires a correct pin? That sounds like a very good idea!

Locking a door doesn't achieve much if you can easily tunnel through the wall. Or do you plan to make your house entirely out of locked chests and doors?

I'm not saying it is a completely bad idea, just that the parameters determining the rate of self-replication have to be carefully considered. I do like the idea of abandoned areas becoming overgrown, but you have to also keep in mind that only the sectors close to a player will be calculated and so...

I have created a demo of my algorithm for creating place names. The script NameDemo.py uses the minetest world generation functions from gentest.py and the naming algorithm functions in MK_Names.py to create a field of signs with generated names on them. The field of signs show a 2D slice through th...

Notch made mushrooms self-replicate in the latest Minecraft update. Despite the slow rate of growth, they are gradually taking over entire maps and driving people crazy. This is a warning to anyone thinking about self-replicating items in Minetest.

Can you think of a way to enable support for two-handed items, like a really BIG sword? Someone is bound to ask for it sooner or later.

I would suggest that for sectors that have already been generated (and are within some distance), you texture the farmesh polygons with an image taken from a top-view map. However, it would be best to ignore water for the map, since it can look really strange to have blue on a slope. In fact, water ...

Long range terrain approximation

I tried it out and it looks promising, but a lot of the polygons are white, especially those approximating the higher parts of the hills. I didn't notice any related errors being printed.
