Good to see more subgames coming to life. (What about your Minetest Plus?)

I think i will drop backward compatibility for MinetestPlus now. And this game is a cooperation and more open than MT+ ;)

Yaay, this is a very welcome development!
7:42 PM - Bauglio: I think if you go to staples you could steal firmware from a fax machine that would run better than win10 does on any platform
7:42 PM - Bauglio: so fudge the stable build
7:43 PM - Bauglio: get the staple build

Fine! The desert cobblestone texture looks very intresting.

Further wishlist:
* Glasspanes (normal glass and obsidian glass): When building with slabs, glass slabs do not always look well (especially not in combination with doors of any kind) - sometimes you just need a pane and not a cube. Especially if you're building your walls with slabs.

* Half a bookshelf. Most bookshelves are not of the 1 m^3 type. A half one looks great.

* Cheaper receipe for sandstone brick. 1 sandstone = 1 sandstone brick and 1 sandstone brick = 1 sandstone. We want people to build nice looking homes - not devastate the landscape while digging insane amounts of sand. Of course if technic is installed this is not an issue as sand can be gained from cobble.

* Consider choosing a new texture for wooden planks. One with 4 planks per wood block might look nicer than the current 3-planks one. However, this requires discussion.

* Get rid of that "feature" which hides the content of locked chests from other people than the owner. This causes delay on the client side when trying to access a chest and is a terrible annoyance. Make a special secret chest if you think it's needed.

* Change the screwdriver or add another tool for changing facedir. Problem here: How to tell the player which setting (all 4x6 ones ought to be offered in a formspec) will have which effect?

* Consider offering straw roofs. Those are very basic for simple huts.

* There are probably further issues I forgot :-)

For the glasspanes and the half bookshelf, I can send you the code (or perhaps a pull request). That's not terribly complicated. No new textures will be needed.
A list of my mods can be found here.

3rd Person View 2 is not the latest git version. It's just a version in between both and doesn't contain all new features.

My wishlist (dear Santa Claus)
- Protected furnaces, onlythe onw which can edit the area gets access
- Simple type of nature (ex. Cobble -> Mossycobble if near water)
- Punch bones to pick up
- Writing on the current paper item
- A work-around for levecooling to protect from "Sound Driver Fail" or whatever when the memory there overflows
- I'm sure I forgot something

Hello
You´ve looked for mods?
I´ve not tested that through enough but this is what I have.
- Protected furnaces (locked_furnace)
- writing on Paper (memo, memorandum)
and I believe there are more to fulfill your needs.
I have somewhat more then 700 mods now, all from this Forum.
Tillthen,
JPR

The fancy inventory looks really good. And I'm happy to see my "dig_up" included now.



Sorry for offtopic.

My opinion to that: Include more subgames in the next release. Now there is no reason not to do.

Some days ago I removed the half and quarter bookshelf from my game - didn't thought anyone would use them. In general you can always use stairsplus.

can the sethome command be included in this game? Maybe with a privilege needed, so that it can be easily excluded when the intended gameplay is such.

Can't say yet. And it can be played on all system minetest_game is playable, so yeah.

If you mean whether the complete minetest_game is included, then yes.

This is a good opportunity to change the mapgen v6 parameters, are you already working on this? i'm thinking of playing with these myself to improve and show the potential of MGV6. Remember MGV7 is about to be radically rewritten so don't depend on that.
Thanks for adding my wieldhand :)

A radical suggestion ... change the grass side texture to be completely grass, this was the first change i ever made to Minetest, lines of dirt along the sides of every grassy hill look so bad to me =/ I seem to remember BlockMen is the only other modder other than me to do this.

Would it be possible to add different mgflags to the New World form so you can tick/untick jungles, caves, flat, nolight etc. within the actual game itself and without editing files... ?
