Re: What happens this year with Minetez? (Mistery)

Minetest is too middling of a game to be the main focus for a large amount of people who want to play sandbox style games. For me, Minetest is cathartic, not so much fun. There are at least 5 other games I have that rank higher than it for fun that I'd prefer to play. Minetest is a great project for...

Re: Mod idea: Charred wood building materials

This is probably one of the easier mods to make. I'd suggest looking into Rubenwardy's book, as this covers probably most of what you'd want to do:

Re: Anyone wanna help with an idea (yep its another fork)

Minetest itself is pretty much a dead end, this is nothing new NO, look at the new shadow thing. Minetest may be dying, but never dead. I think PolySaken means that Minetest is not really forkable, and is a dead-end, due to the fact that the project has so much specialized engine material. Minetest...

Re: Time to change forums to Flarum?

Flarum is open source, so its not like you couldn't see the Javascript that is built into the project on GitHub. And the admin staff here wouldn't put tracking on it anyway.

Regardless, the forum should move from phpBB to something better, as mod tasks are incredibly annoying to operate.

Re: Anyone wanna help with an idea (yep its another fork)

Compatibility with minetest would be very useful in that sort of project, especially if it extends to the whole game<mod<texturepack hierarchy, because it prepopulates content rather than starting with none. I would be careful, as that is a fairly limiting proposal. Alternatively, I would suggest h...

I'll definitely post about it in this topic if/when I put something together, but the degree to which it's 'on-topic' might be debatable if it's just 'inspired' by MT.
That's what the Minetest-related-projects section is for, if you feel the need to be appropriately on-topic.

Re: Anyone wanna help with an idea (yep its another fork)

So many things are ingrained toward creating MTG derivatives and clones that I'd basically have to rewrite the entire codebase, and at that point I'd rather just create an entirely new but related project (that has been a plan of mine for years, but it's not a thing I can just do on a whim). That's...

Re: [Request] Discord support

Let people have the things that they want if they want. Minetest is an open platform, meaning that people should be able to do whatever they want with it, including infect it. Just provided it doesn't get in the way of others.

So if someone wants it, they can and should implement it using a mod.

The attention to detail is quite nice on these structures. I never was a fan of the non 90 angular blocks in a Minetest world, but they work really well.

Re: A non MultiCraft server list please.

Okay, first: We currently have possible 9407 different versions of official Minetest (each commit on MS GitHub could be used to compile it in this state, each causing a different checksum).

Re: A non MultiCraft server list please.

but from my perspective, it would likely involve some form of code / executable hash verification. For example, just take the md5 of the Minetest executable and then send that to the serverlist. There is so much wrong with this I don’t even know where to start. (Technical details be damned. I'm not...

Re: A non MultiCraft server list please.

I'd like to point out (according to my understanding) that the OP is not referring to the official serverlist, but rather is referring to the server listings as reflected in the Minetest client. Frankly, as long the server is fully compatible with standard Minetest clients, I see no problem at all. ...
