Re: MTG: Desert mining just got even worse

I found the commit message which is supposed to contain three good reasons: Split underground biome to correspond to surface biomes In preparation for biome-defined: dungeon materials, cave liquids, stone type, ores, decorations. '_ocean' biomes now extend to y = -255 to be deeper than default mgv5 ...

Re: [MOD] Sandwiches! [sandwiches]

You made a tasty mod ;) Note that you don't need any dependency for crafting recipes, not even the optional ones. If a crafting recipe requires an unknown item, it won't be even shown in Unified Inventory. Also, you can ask whether a mod is going to load even if it's not a dependency. Did you consid...

Re: [64x64]Minetest faithful texture pack experiment [v1.0.1

Well, interpolation is not a simple thing. There are many methods of interpolation and much advice what to do but none of these methods are perfect and each of them is good for different purposes. There are some methods to interpolate pixel-art. However, to interpolate pixel-art correctly, you also ...

Re: [Server] Tunnelers' Abyss

Can be a Minetest server shutdown by Minetest staff?

Today I heard that Minetest staff has the right to remotely shutdown any Minetest server. I can't imagine how this can even happen. Does Minetest code contain a hole by which it can be shutdown? And what if I patch it? And is it all even true?

Re: Ores are waste of HDD

Well, a different compression method might be also a way. However, the information might not be present at all when nobody would use it. For time efficiency: The cave walls will be generated during mapgen, so the mapgen might just take a little more time. Or maybe even less because all ores will be ...

I noticed that caves with water or lava pool might exceed to neighbour mapblocks but I never noticed any new cave being generated during gameplay.

I could be mistaken though

What do you mean by caves being constantly generated? Do they generate in already generated mapblocks?

Re: Ores are waste of HDD

I think, caves don't cause much entropy. If you take a mk2 prospector from technic and set it to a common ore, you can notice that the veins are scattered everywhere.

It will stay. I think, there's no need to remove them again because that will happen in a very few cases.

Re: Ores are waste of HDD

Actually, only two players noticed that something was wrong. By "can be seen" I mean that its adjacent nodes are see-through. So the cave walls will be generated while the bulk will stay consistent until it gets exposed. I think, adding a few numbers to each mapblock won't increase the siz...

Re: Ores are waste of HDD

Unfortunately, I don't have any accurate data. The amount of players is more or less constant. The size growth is about 3-5 times faster when ores generate properly.

Ores are waste of HDD

I noticed one thing on my server. While there was a bug which caused the ores not to generate, the world size was increasing way slower. The reason is that the lack ores decreases entropy, so the map can be compressed more effectively. I also noticed that like 99% ores will be never mined out and wo...
