Minetest 0.4.6 released!

by PilzAdam » Wed Apr 03, 2013 21:09

Hello everyone!
We have a new release: Minetest 0.4.6! Many nice things were added to the default game. Or should I say games? Yes, we have 3 official games now: (the old) "minetest_game", "Survival" and "Build". Also with the new system were games can load mods from "common" its a lot easier to create your own game.
Some of the features that were added to the default games are new ores (like copper and gold), lavacooling near water, obsidian and diamonds. See the changelog for a complete list.
Also the engine has developed: dungeons and jungles are added back, the mapgen speed was increased a lot and many bugs were fixed. Again, see the changelog for a complete list.
Umm... I think thats enough for now. Have fun playing it!

Download (Windows build): http://minetest.ru/builds/minetest-0.4.6.zip
Source: https://github.com/minetest
Changelog: http://dev.minetest.net/Changelog#0.4.5_.E2.86.92_0.4.6

freebsd port will probably be updated in the next week.

Maybe it would make more sense to label that as "Download for WIndows", as it's the Windows version, not every version.

minetest/minetest is compiled.
minetest/common is installed.
0gb-us/0gb.us_game still needs some work done before updating.

I need to make fire less devastating, in addition to adding some fixes related to the new lava/obsidian mechanics.

Edit; never mind, I'll do a partial update for you. It should give you what you're after, but be careful with fire and lava.

Because you do something wrong :-)
Make sure the line is in minetest.conf and not minetest.conf.example and that there is no # at the beginning of the line.
Also make sure that you have create a new map after setting it and that minetest wasnt running when you edited the file.

Then you didn't actually compile the latest git. I run Linux and my build shows 0.4.6, and was updated less than an hour ago.

Ok so I replaced everything with stone on mapgen.lua and made ores spawn around dirt(That, will never happen since dirt is now stone) and I tested it out works but now the map has this:

What is that? I can't think on what it can be, in a flat map.

And I didn't do it if you say you may, have place the stone like that.

Edit:900 Post!

Found my Problem I added something I should not have.

The server list doesn't work in this build, but the build works well otherwise.

From what I hear from PilzAdam, that's because Windows uses non-standard line endings. Windows uses \r\n, where most operating systems (as far as I know, ALL operating systems besides Windows and Mac OS versions older than X) use \n. It makes it difficult for the server list file to be read by the game.

This I know, but even the list of available servers does not show (the server list that uses cURL.)

Better idea: Have it check for Windows, and if so, have it instal an operating system that actually works.

Here is a perfect example of Windows making things difficult. It's not a grudge. Windows is legitimately a problem.

I encountered two annoyances compiling this version on GNU/Linux:

First, on the download page, there are no direct links to common, survival, or build. I had to go to GitHub to download them. If the readme is telling the truth about common being necessary for minetest_game to work, that's a pretty big deal. On this note, why isn't there just a source download that has everything in it? I really don't see the point in making people have to download them separately, and it's even worse when there are four separate things to download now.

Second, when I did "sudo make install", survival and build did not get copied from the games folder of the source directory to /usr/local/share/minetest/games. I had to do this manually.
