I miss MT TNG. It was quite polished.

Good to hear that you liked it, but it and the monthly releases have cost me much time and at some point I wanted to do different stuff.
Now nearly a year later I don't think it's a good idea to maintain a game only by one person. It gets outdated very fast (at least if you're just an "improved" MTG). I think the most things TNG did were also possible with mods, that would have the advantage now that everything would be just compatible with the newest MTG.
But I learned much in this time and I'd say this was the first time I really began to program and write larger programms/mods/whatever.

If anyone is missing a TNG feature wrote by me, please back port it (also inform me please) or at least tell me which feature this is.

I completely understand. It's a big project to maintain on your own.

You're right that a lot of the functionality could be mod based. Things I could think of from the top of my head that's worth backporting:
- Key activated item pickup (done already)
- Right-click harvesting
- Neatly spread item drops from chest contents when digging chests
- Ruins with loot in those crusty chests
- Ore generation in not only regular stone
- Bonemeal
- Unjumpable fence
- Gates?
- Fruits
- Maple trees
- Cherry trees

And these are just things I can recall from lastly playing it almost a year ago. I'm thinking of way to non-destructively add some of these features back in to MTG via overwrites in new mods. I'd love to have diggable non-empty chests, for example.

I also don't really know anymore what I've done in all the time...

This was one of the main reasons why I started to create TNG. - I don't want to use overrides.

This feature shouldn't be hard to back-port. I also made the pull request in Minetest NeXt in 2015 for that.


I think a back port of the Farming API would be most needed. And maybe cherry and maple trees.

IIRC, backpacks in the mod by evaramzah are diggable when non-empty.

Thank you for the report, but I'm not maintaining this project anymore.
If you want that this gets fixed in CME, you can report it on the mob engine's forum topic / github repository.

Hello,

I just downloaded Minetest and played a little. TNG is what looks more like what I want to play with my kids, if I download it and unzip inside the Minetest games folder of the most recent version, will it run ok?
