You can create "minetest.conf" (the config file), "mods/" (mods and modpacks), "textures/" (texture packs), and "games/" (alternative game modes) in the ".minetest/" folder if you need any of those.

Here is an up-to date minetest.conf.example. It contains most of the settings that you can use, along with a description. To use a setting, copy the line to your minetest.conf and remove the '#' from the beginning (lines beginning with '#' are ignored). Minetest should be closed before editing the config file; changes will be overwritten otherwise.

Thanks, just finished it for now, is there anything else i can do with the conf file, maybe use the mods?

and is there a tutorial some where that is up-to-date, that explains how to use the Land Claims, and more mods?

Thanks sooo much!!!

To add mods you just click on the world and add mods from the main menu.

Tutorials for mods can be found on their corresponding threads but if you download it you can read the README.txt file which is usually there.

If you want this type of land claim which I think you are talking about, information can be found here.
