I saw Nathan's video and the changes look good the mese lamps
look interesting and seem like a good solution to the underground farm problem
from the video there seems to be 3d torches although that might be a mod Nathan uses
I'll upload 4.16 tomorrow and see how many mods I use become unknown nodes lol

On the official Android version 0.4.16, is this actually really intended or it's a bug, or it's actually client side setting (where is it if it is)?
I could highlight node very far away... and yes I can dig them if I want, I've tried underground before taking these screenshots...

I like the new progress bar, but on desktop PC it seems the texture is wrong.
Its currently 256px x 48px and looks weird when loading.
Image

If you alter it to 256px x 32px it looks fine.

Is the current image size required for the Android version?
or am I just experiencing weirdness particular to me?

Applause!

by Wuzzy » Post

I applaud for this big and important release!
I am very glad for the sneaking bugfixes.
A ton of cool Lua API features which will be very useful for mod and subgame development. Probably the biggest addition of Lua API features since long. I already tested the clouds API, it's really cool!

Overall, I am just very happy with this release. :-)


Minetest Game players: I have updated the Minetest Game item help mod (viewtopic.php?f=9&t=15224) for version 0.4.16.

Nathan I saw your video changelog. I noticed you did not mention the new book. Now when you open a book, write the title and the text, save. When you move the mouse pointer to the book in the inventory, it is labeled with the title that was inserted inside it. Very useful to mark map coordinates when I find interesting things.

Some textures have been improved (ironbar type).

Oh my God! New Modding APIs! I have to test absolutely! Have added so many new features to the modding. I want to experiment with the clouds.

Thank you Nathan, your videos are always the top!

That's because I was working on my city's train (cart) network underground on that server, I just went above to take screenshot and post here before going back to work underground. (Luckily it didn't crash that time, usually opening Chrome while Minetest is running could crash Minetest on Android)

It works regardless what I hold in hand, I retried it in singleplayer this time:
Image
It highlights that mese post light placed in front of my skin's dummy statue (I made dummy so I could see the details of my own skin xD). The dummy itself is also highlightable. It is far.

If you can't see the highlighting, you could see the debug clearly detects where I'm pointing at... (btw, you could open the image in new tab and zoom in, the screenshot was taken at my phone's native resolution 1920x1080)

I don't know if it's weird, but personally the bar is quite big in ratio to the font I'm using and in ratio to GUI scaling I set (0.8) on Android version.

Just updated to 0.4.16.
On the whole everything performs better!

But I get following errors:

debug.txt:

Code: Select all

2017-06-05 16:15:10: WARNING[Main]: /!\ You are using old player file backend. This backend is deprecated and will be removed in next release /!\
2017-06-05 16:15:10: WARNING[Main]: Switching to SQLite3 or PostgreSQL is advised, please read http://wiki.minetest.net/Database_backends.
I don't understand this. All my world.mt files have the line

Code: Select all

backend = sqlite3
The following error was a result of a deprecated setting in minetest.conf. Solved!

I am okay with using the screenshots in all my posts for the website of Minetest (http://minetest.net).

It would figure that I would forget something. I honestly didn't even know that had happened. I don't use books at all, and the discussion surrounding it must have either been very small or I just missed it somehow.

Public Service Announcement

by Wuzzy » Post

This is a mese post light, which is new in Minetest Game:
Image



This is a mese lamp, which Minetest Game had for quite a while:
Image

Please do not confuse the two.


Other important things completely forgotten by Nathan S.:
- All the serious sneaking bugs have been fixed. This is easily the most important change in this release.

Minetest Game (only most important changes):
- Cacti and papyri require light level 13 to grow!
- Nyan Cat and Nyan Cat Rainbow removed
- Tooltip of written books/keys show title / what they open
- A lot of crafting recipes were changed, especially dye crafting has been seriously nerfed

Where can I find the 0.4.16 minetest-server and minetest-data packages for Ubuntu 16.04? I got these packages from debian.org last time but they only have 0.4.15 currently.

It looks like they are currently in the 'experimental' repo. https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/minetest
I did not see a download available, which leaves you to compiling your own package from github source, sorry.
(I didn't suggest the stable PPA, even though that is at 0.4.16 because you asked for -server and -data packages.)
