Re: [Server] Xanadu

Albert Uderzo, creator of the Asterix cartoons, died earlier this year, so I'm making a little tribute to him (-6245,11,-768) http://pathilorra.co.uk/minetest/village.png http://pathilorra.co.uk/minetest/asterix_obelix.png http://pathilorra.co.uk/minetest/fulliautomatix.png http://pathilorra.co.uk/m...

Re: Minetest Game now in maintenance/bugfix-only mode, no feature PRs accepted

The trouble with standards is that top-down enforcement doesn't work. Standards become so because most people do things that way. The default mod in my games has been stripped right out and defines no nodes at all. Consider that a world might not have 'rock' in it. Unlikely I know, but more likely t...

Re: Please make more games!

So part of the problem is due to the ambiguity of the term 'games'. Mine*(type) environments are not strictly games and the open-endedness somewhat mitigates against conventional game design - you can't play 'Go' on a board with no edges - so most competitive pursuits require in-game arenas and such...

Re: Please make more games!

The new content tab is great. I have discovered several interesting games like NodeCore and Hamlet's Quest as well as useful mods. I have designed a game, took a long break and I've just started on a new one. Neither of them are much more than re-workings of MTG, but I have done considerable work to...

It doesn't keep shutting down thunderdog, you just keep lagging out.

It appears I've more or less completed the new mapgen for Grailtest 0.5.0 (codename Hyperborea).
Not pushing anything to github just yet as I'm taking the opportunity to rebuild it from scratch (again!).

Re: Xanadu Server

Anyway, back to the game: I'm not keen on the torches update. I use torches for most of my lighting, so I will have to replace a lot of nodes. The problem is what to replace them with. Most other forms of lighting are too bright and modern for what I'm building or not wall-mountable. The best soluti...

Xanadu is not HOMETOWN. I'm sure TenPlus1 is quite capable of moderating if necessary. A little chat is reassuring for other players who are wondering where Xanadu has gone. Relax :)
