I post here my little styleguide for building tracks.

If it is possible, place the track on the same level as the default terrain. Don't build any tunnels/ridges/dams/bridges if you don't need to. Also the turns should be as fluent as possible and the tracks don't have to be axis-aligned.

If the track is slightly above the default terrain (less than 4 blocks), put it on a dam. A dam should consist of dirt (or other surface material) and should have a 45-degrees slope on both sides. If the dam needs to be too wide, you can make the slope steeper but then you should reinforce it by building a wall. If the track is too high, make a nice bridge instead.

If the track is slightly bellow the default terrain, make a walley. There should be a 45-degree slope on both sides. If you need to subtract too much material to make the slope, make it steeper but reinforce it by building a wall. If there is a naturally-generated cliff next to the track, you can keep it as is. If the track is too deep, build a tunnel instead. A tunnel should be 4 blocks tall. If there is going to be only one-block thick layer above the tunnel, destroy it and make a ridge as described above.

Use digtrons or worldedit only if you are aware of all side-effects. Also keep in mind that such tools usually don't do all the job, you still need to look at the result and fix the issues.
If you lack the reality, go on a trip or find a job.

Nice

Also, since the server has migrated to the new hardware, will the maps be generated at fixed intervals? It seems like the Maps page is not updated yet.

Is it only me or is it the server that is having problem with the Internet? I am getting more timeouts this week (even at 23:00), sometimes less than 3 minutes after I joined the game.

Is there any chance that this server might get an IPv6 address?
I could not find any and resolving the AAAA record yielded nothing.

Thank You

I don't know. Most Minetest servers still use IPv4 addresses.
You can find information about the server host here, but it doesn't appear to have anything about IP addresses.
Anyway, what's the problem? "Couldn't resolve address"?

The problem is that my internet provider supports UDP over IPv6 only.
That means i can not join a server which only has an IPv4 address.

Here is a rough list (from my experience Hetzner) what to do:
* Have an IPv6 net or ask for one at your provider
* Configure the network interface of your server so it knows about it's IPv6
* Tell MineTest to listen on IPv6 too.
* Add an AAAA-Record to your DNS with the right IPv6 address

Tutorials suggest that it is possible to this with NetCup: https://www.bjoerns-techblog.de/2017/07/ipv6-auf-netcup-root-server-und-centos/

It would be nice if i could join your server and IPv6 is a growing technology which some MineTest servers already support.

I will activate ipv6 tomorrow on the server. linux-forks.de now has an AAAA record.

Hmmm... Now I cannot see the server at http://servers.minetest.net/, and it's ?/? in the client. Coincidence?

gabriel:
I do see the server on minetest.net/servers, but servers.minetest.net doesn't appear to be loading here.

Is this some sort of weird bug, or is it that my router is messing up today? The warning says that there's a problem with the login session and asks me to login again, but then it tells me that I have logged in.
