Yeah I have seen this too. Pretty sure it is not meant to be like that.

If you're using indev mapgen those might be small bits of the core floatlands?
Use the mapgen parameter in minetest.conf to set floatlands higher than moonrealm, or otherwise use mapgen v6.

Another possibility is cavegen, cavegen will put holes through everything in moonrealm so it's best to disable that for your world if you can. In MT 0.4.9dev onwards you can use 'is_ground_content = false' in a node definition to stop enabled cavegen eating that node, this line will be added to moonrealm mod in the next version 0.6.6.

Whenever I try to use it, I get this error:

case 1: 'get_breath' is 'nil' because player is 'nil'
case 2: 'get_breath' got added in a dev version of 0.4.7 (somewhere around there)

I think case 2 happened because you've got an old minetest version. Upgrade.

I am using 0.4.7, so I suppose I should upgrade anyway. Sigh...
Thanks for the help, though.

More importantly, all my best mapgens rely on the 'lua voxel manipulator' for fast (1-4 seconds per chunk) generation, that was added in 0.4.8 stable.

I would recommend getting the latest development version of Minetest from GitHub.

Was having fun exploring the moon, and found that if you follow some of the crevasses, and keep going down, eventually you fall right through the bottom and back to earth! LOL....preeeety cool!

0.7.0
SInglenode realm mode as default, with disabled clouds. This will disable clouds in your minetest.conf file, despite trying to re-enable clouds on leaveplayer they seem to stay disabled (Any ideas why this fails?).
You spawn inside a spawn egg and are provided with a spacesuit, punch your way out.
The search for spawn position searches for smooth terrain to 'land' on.
No falling nodes for the moment as this creates bugs.

We are on the sunlit side of the moon, which i assume is tidally locked, and is also at permanent full moon: opposition from the sun. I guess the moontest guys are on the dark side. 'Black sky with sun' skybox will be added at Minetest 0.4.10 stable.

0.7.1
More equipment is given at spawn, lights are inside the egg as yolk.
Terrain will not overwrite spawn egg, even if it is underground.
Fix time at noon, note time speed may be changed in your minetest.conf file.

Version 0.8.0
This is for Minetest 0.4.9 dev after the custom skybox commit.
Auto setting of skybox and light ratio in both singlenode and stacked realm modes. Overridng the light ratio keeps the surface bright independant of server time, essential for the stacked realm mode.
The airglow around the home world in the sky is sampled from it's dawn / dusk skies.

Version 0.8.1
Minetest 0.4.10 makes the custom skybox and 'override day/night ratio' a part of stable minetest, so this mod is now finally 'complete'.
Code has been updated to use the voxelmanip for spawning appletrees, vacuum and air spread, hydoponic liquid saturation and drying.
The terrain in this mod is the best mapgen i have created.
There is new text in the first post:

"By default a singlenode realm that uses the new custom skybox and 'override day/night ratio': the brightness of the terrain stays constant and is independant of server time in both singlenode or stackes realm modes.
If using as a realm stacked above a normal world, edit YMIN, YMAX and GRADCEN in the init.lua file. You can disable singlenode in the functions.lua file.
You will spawn inside an egg and be provided with a spacesuit and initial equipment. Break your way out of the egg and use the lights inside as your initial supply of lights.
Mine moon stone and build a sealed base, the airlock nodes can be walked through but will not let life support air pass, place the airgen node in the centre of the base and wait for the air to spread. Place hydroponic liquid in at least 2 nodes depth of moon dirt and wait for it to saturate and turn the moon dirt into orange moon 'soil', then plant a sapling, this will only grow in 2 nodes depth of moon soil under a 5x5x6 node volume of air.
The appletree provides apples and leaves for crafting more hydroponic liquid."

You need to use Minetest 0.4.10 or later for that function to work. It wasn't in the game yet in Minetest 0.4.9.

Rename the mod folder to "moonrealm", not "moonrealm-master". You should never have "-master" after a mod name.
Only modpacks can get away with it, and even then you can have trouble every now and then. Even if you converted the folder name to "moonrealmmaster" to fit the rules, it would break the mod, since it requires the name "moonrealm".

General rule of thumb: the folder should be named after the mod in the forum title, usually found in square brackets.

This has to be from the best mods you made paramat! Though, there is one thing I would like to see. I would added myself, but I don't know:

-The air gen is awesome, but if by accident or during PvP events a wall is broken, the air will leak out. The air keeps spreading and lags the map.

Is it possible to add something that within an amount of time, the moonrealm:air turns into default:air? I would rather have that moonrealm:vacuum fill in and replace the default:air if anything happened instead of never-ending spread of air.

Thanks for an awesome mod!
EDIT: added more info

Or that air generator will place air to longer size and this air will not generate other air nodes. And air generator could be compatible with pipeworks mod too. I like this mod so much. SpaceBase server could be awesome.

The life support air uses node metadata to limit it's spread, it will expand in vacuum to create a bubble of air but won't spread further. This feature was added to fix the endless spread of life support air that mauvebic and i experienced early on in development.

This mod needs a furnace replacement, i'm considering adding a mod electric furnace powered by nearby solar panel nodes, instead of the default furnace powered by mese.
Then, all the air, machines and survival code will be ported into my 'asteroid' mod.

Thanks. I saw it spread, but I didn't knew it would stop eventually. Also I noticed that buildings must be closed squares or else the air leaks. Ex. If you try to build a sphere like building, you had to make like two layers to avoid leaks.

At one point life support air only spread through cube faces to avoid that, but that method was slower, i also decided that air pressure requires a really strong thick container and that edge- or corner- connected nodes should therefore be considered not good enough.

The custom furnace is going to be difficult for me, if only mauvebic was here ...
