I agree. Indestructible nodes can make gameplay far more interesting. Think of a big cube of indestructible stones around the bases in caverns - this would make tunneling impossible ! Or an indestructible parkour...

Indestructible nodes give a map its unique character, esp. if the map in question primarily revolves around artificial structures, like buildings and other decorations. Such maps become meaningless if those structures are destroyed, and wouldn't offer the style of gameplay the map author intended.

I didn't really mean to do this to annoy people, i was doing this as a troll idea. Some people even wanted me to do that
- specifically tell them a story - . However if you think this is an offense, then i will gladly stop.

As far as I know, this is not possible with the current Minetest API.

I thought -sniper- was talking about customizing the builtin minimap.

Someone can make a mod for this minimap. This isn't minimap (F9), this is suggestion for mod. This really will be very useful. A lot of team vs team games have something like this.

I'd also appreciate this kind of minimap if it doesn't cause too much lag.

That's a great idea, and I'm sure it's possible to make one. It'd definitely be nice to have the actual minimap support this, but this approach is probably much better. We needn't bother about terrain, and can focus on team-mates and flags which makes this even simpler to do. It'd be even more useful if the markers have a pointer-like shape, which can be used to also display player's direction.

Unfortunately, while the client already knows the positions and look-dirs of all players within a huge range, the (server-side) mod is oblivious to this and will re-fetch the positions and look-dirs of all players again, and this probably happens every server step. This will cause heaps of lag, unless done through (SS)CSMs. I'm afraid this will have to wait until (at least) 5.1.0 :(

I thought of a similar idea, where each team-mate is marked by HUD way-points similar to the flag waypoints. I even made a feature request, but that was deemed as impossible, because of the fact that player positions is only sent to players within an albeit massive range. But in CTF, since the whole map is just 220x220x140 nodes in size, all player positions are sent to every other player. So we could just use static waypoints, but update the positions every server step. This would do for the time-being, until we're able to provide the minimap.

Sorry, I thought you were still trolling, lol :)

Nevertheless trolling is a punishable offence and your ban won't be manually removed. Hope it's a tempban...

Hmm, I didn't see anything about trolling in the rules.

And it is a perm ban.

It's a good idea to be nice to other people regardless of whether or not there's a rule saying you have to. This is one of the smaller pains that can come from not doing that.

The Minetest 5.0.0 server for CTF is to be considered the main one. I've disable rankings and limited the player count on the 0.4.17.1 server

The Minetest 5.0.0 server has a lot of new features, including:
  • Traps
  • Slippery nodes
  • Medkits and bandages
  • Reinforced cobble

Have the rankings from the 0.4.17.1 server been transferred to the 5.0.0 server?

Yes. The 5.0.0 server is actually the 0.4.17.1 server. I swapped them
