How to play:
Your only chance to survive are the ruined houses you can find in the world. There you can find usefull stuff to survive: Food, water, seeds and even saplings. But you wont find that in every ruin. Some contain just food and just rarely you can find water or sapling.

Awesome! Also, is this based off of a minecraft mod by the same name? :D

I believe this mod predicts the future, so people might as well practice surviving.

This looks cool. I shall give it a go.

EDIT: When loading a world in the Wasteland gamemode, i get this error:
12:57:40: ERROR[main]: ServerError: LuaError: error: ...etest/0.4.7/bin/../games/wasteland/mods/hud/init.lua:48: attempt to call method 'hud_set_hotbar_image' (a nil value)

I noticed this problem a few times when using Blockmen's better HUD mod.

That means that your Minetest is atleast 17 days not updated or you are using 0.4.7 stable. If so you can use version 0.9 of better hud :P

But this game requires lasted git. Forgot to mention ;)

Would it be possible to add a radiation bar that is healed by eating certain objects and a special hazmat suit to protect against it?
Just some thoughts getting ideas out there

Yeah, it would be possible. Im still not sure whether this game should contain toxins, etc or not. Currently this game is based on the idea that the water is gone, except some special sources that the player can use to survive and build up the world.

Anyway, thanks for your suggestion, i may add toxins or make another game for it.

You might want to add grass regrowing when water is next to dirt, soon grass will slowly cover the earth again, not to mention flowers might pop up in unexpected places...

Just played a little last night. I found 2 ruins and got 2 buckets of water. Using those buckets of water, I created an infinite water source. You might want to change that particular aspect of the game or water soon wont be a rare item. A bit of fun otherwise. :)

So much is possible now, with what you have made. This actually brings some sort of Survival to Minetest.
Suggestion: Add options for customization, in a configuration file alongside init.lua - example, replacing Oceans with Radwaste Contaminated Water, and replacing the dirt-with-grass with Fallout-covered-soil - Or replacing oceans with Ice and the first few nodes of the surface land with Snow. That would be awesome.

This would go well with the experimental mapgen mod.

When testing i had the problem that it was too rare^^. I have changed the chance of bucket with water and added empty buckets. Should be more balanced now.

Nice ideas, but dont expect the possibility of costomizations too soon. Maybe it would be better to fork this and make "new" games then ;)

This game isnt ment to have much biomes and is slowed down enough by changing different things. But the mapgen mod is great, yes.

You put bucket:bucket in chests, the problem is that this item does not exist.

The minerals are overpowered. I wouldn’t have expected that using it results in instant growth. xD

I am looking forward to when monsters are in.

Oh, will be fixed. And actually the growth minerals do is random. So you can need one mineral or up to 5 or something. Maybe it needs be tweaked a bit...

Dumb person question- I downloaded it and extracted. How do I get it to play? Also you can play with other people right?

Add the "wasteland" folder to ~/games/ in your minetest folder.

And yes, you can play this with other ppl (like every other game here) if someone hosts it.

Is this still being worked on? I would love to see this develop into something great.
