I have a better solution. Gradually blend your perlin noise values with the values on the opposite side of the world for chunks near the edge. Choose a distance which is large compared to the features in your terrain gen, then gradually blend from one side to the other over that distance. Blocks exactly on the edge should be a 50-50 mix of the terrain from each side.
Basically make a tile of the pelin noise "image?"

Can someone post a link to info on mapgen? The dev doesn't seem to have much and I wouldn't mind understanding a little bit of what you are talking about.

For mgv6 this would need a change in the core mapgen, l think.

Essentially yes. The goal is to make the terrain periodic in x and z with period equal to the size of your walkable area. The walkable area of the map should tessellate without discontinuities.

I've made a quick diagram that might explain what I mean a bit better:

I might try and write up my own mapgen tutorial over the holidays, but for now I suggest looking at the example code on this wiki page: http://dev.minetest.net/minetest.get_perlin_map
It shows how to do basic terrain generation. Anything more complex is usually just a matter of adding more perlin noise functions and combining them in interesting ways.

No, you can do it entirely in Lua. You do have to use the get_perlin_map function twice to get the perlin noise corresponding to opposite sides of the map, but the rest is just an averaging function weighted by your coordinates.

Thanks. That helps. If you do a tutorial might I suggest that you talk to rubenwardy. He is writing a book.

I solved the terrain height using the VoxelManip.

It also will teleport the player with a 99% chance because they can not move while they're attached to something.
Look, I programmed a bug for you. >> Mod Search Engine << - Mods by Krock - DuckDuckGo mod search bang: !mtmod <keyword here>

No sorry, that doesn't work yet. The cart gets detached from the player when the other entity gets attached.

I merged it but I haven't tested it. Thanks again.

Nice work Krock. I just tested it and besides the slight delay it works great. I am going to update the first post now.

Is there a way to know if you are at ground level or underground? When you are mining and cross the 30000 mark you are teleported to the surface. That is fine when you are exploring the land but when mining it would be nice to keep going.

The chance for having a cave (or any other hole) in on the other word edge, is low.
It could be a soulation to dig a corridor, so the player could return to its previous place.

I understand the chances are low. I was just curious. If the code could do it so if you are above 0 then it works like you made it but below 0 you stay at same height.
