- Code: Select all
20:15:16 < celeron55> one of the problems is that if all modders stick with minetest_game and expect every feature from it to exist, the mods won't work in anything else; and those games [any other game] should not be forced to take everything from a hypotethical bloated minetest_game just in order to be able to work
20:17:43 < celeron55> one of the other problems is that because minetest_game is saved in worlds on thousands of computers, anything added to it cannot really be removed, ever, and there currently is no meaningful development direction for it (because different people want different things)
20:19:14 < celeron55> those quite effectively mean that it has to be frozen and more focused ones must be taken into use instead
20:21:12 < celeron55> and they will then be starting from a level playing field instead of riding on minetest_game's automatic publicity which makes people hate each other less due to unfairness
Minetest_game is in maintenance mode due to a variety of reasons. One if the issues with it's replacements is that it's unclear which of of them, and when, are ready for release.
1) you are developing a subgame,
2) it is ready to be released to anyone who downloads Minetest,
3) it's name is not "minetest_game", "minetest", "minimal" or "minimal_game",
4) you aren't planning to discontinue it anytime soon,
5) it's released under a free license (permissive [preferably] or copyleft)
you should post it in this topic.
We will find a way to pick a couple of games to the next Minetest release (or the one after that; soon anyway) and get all possible Minetest packages to include the recommended bunch of games in a default install option.
The games will be picked so that there is minimal overlap, while the desires of most people are catered for, while keeping the package size reasonable. The recommended games will be reconsidered for each release, but it is very desirable that they don't need to be removed for a long time.
