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.

Re: Post your Buildings(screenshots)

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.

Nice touch with falling water. I wonder how the bridge looks at night. Yeah, I am pretty happy with this building, I think its one of the best ones I've made. I think there's some more small details to add, but this is good for now. The bridge in particular was inspired by whale ribs, which was fun...

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). Even if only allowing the tagged releases there are 55 of them. Only allowing tagged releases won’t work beca...

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. ...

Re: A non MultiCraft server list please.

Multicraft and others parasitizing the Minetest server list infrastructure is absolutely fine according to the devs. https://github.com/minetest/serverlist/issues/32 That's completely different than I request MineTest clients have the option to opt in of viewing Multicraft servers on the server lis...

Re: White balance correction

I also approve of being able to manipulate this. The latter two do look much better to me. It is just a post-processing effect, so it shouldn't be too hard to implement, even dirtily, I'm sure.

Re: JavaScript for moddding

They could (and eventually will) re-license it to a proprietary license. I wonder even if a community will be able to support V8 engine when Google will drop it's support as it dropped a support for a lots of another projects. I disagree that they will re-license it.

Re: JavaScript for moddding

More than JavaScript, TypeScript would be a lot better. Why would anyone use a stand-alone Microsoft scripting language for embedded scripting of free software? Because Typescript is licensed under Apache License 2.0 and it makes writing bad JavaScript code harder. And because it is a superset of J...

Deleting and resetting works. Will add some comments to the issue.
