It appears that CPU and RAM usage were dropped to a more reasonable level in 0.4.6 stable.

compiled this in a separate folder (not system wide) from git tonight.

weird light spots (no light sources):

And the map_meta.txt from a map i copied over was overwritten, i figured that its because these two lines were missing from the old map_meta.txt (from 045):

Code: Select all

mgv6_np_apple_trees = 0.000000, 1.000000, (100.000000, 100.000000, 100.000000), 342902, 3, 0.450000
mgv6_np_humidity = 0.500000, 0.500000, (500.000000, 500.000000, 500.000000), 72384, 4, 0.660000
So anyone that wishes to hold onto their map should copy those two lines into their map_meta.txt before starting their world in the 0.46 client, otherwise a new map_meta.txt will be generated.

I have updated the launchpad builds to include common, survival and build games. The stable and daily packages should be available now.
However, the stable build doesnt contain the games survival and build. You can get them manually from here and place them in ~/.minetest/games/ (you have to create the folder).

Also make sure that you have create a new map after setting it and that minetest wasnt running when you edited the file.
Anyway, I do have 0.4.6 version.

1. My question is after upgrade from 0.4.5 to 0.4.6, do I need to create new world to get diamond and lava cooling etc?
2. Can i somehow regenerate old world into new version (not to lose all buildings)?
3. In 0.4.6 using old world generated from 0.4.5 I discover that can't create mese pick?! Nothing happens.

Tnx for reply.

Features like lavacooling dont need a new world, but to get the new ores you need to go to places in the map that werent generated before.
To use your 0.4.5 world in 0.4.6 you just have to copy the world. But there is a problem with map_meta.txt, you have to add these two lines at the end of it:

Code: Select all

mgv6_np_apple_trees = 0.000000, 1.000000, (100.000000, 100.000000, 100.000000), 342902, 3, 0.450000
mgv6_np_humidity = 0.500000, 0.500000, (500.000000, 500.000000, 500.000000), 72384, 4, 0.660000

OK thank you,
acctualy this both line I do have, so I suppose it is not important to add.
How can I know which location weren't generated :)?!

I'm having a bit of trouble with the 2013_04_08 build of Minetest.

I've downloaded the engine and the games from Github.
Made sure the dependencies listed in the README.txt file are up-to-date.
Compiled MT on linux (following the instructions in the README.txt file).
Run the program.
Adjust the settings in the menus and the privs in-game.
Exit MT and then...

1. MT is not able to create the minetest.conf file. I've checked the file permissions and they are the same as the earlier build I was using.

2. When I "Exit to OS", the terminal is filled with lines from "Memory map" and ends with "(core dumped)".

3. When I "Exit to Menu", MT crashes.

Any ideas or solutions?

Other than that, thanks for all the improvements in 0.4.6!

@Mauvebic: About the light spots. I've been using the fire mod for some time and each time I get an out of control burn I dump water sources all around to dowse it. After logging out and back in again there are weird light areas all over the map. My fix, and this takes some time, is to place multiple blocks of wool about 10 to 20 high and sight the column for light areas. Sometimes I have to build giant towers but there will be some invisible light sources from fire that are hanging in the air. Once you find them and place something in it's node path, such as wool, the new object or node overwrites the spot where invisible fire exists. I've tried using the /clearobjects command multiple times on this with no effect. Building the towers of something lite always works but it is a pain.

Is the map_meta.txt file standard in every world? As in the exact same file?

map_meta.txt gets it content from minetest.conf when entering the world the first time.

So C&Ping the altered file when switching my maps to 4.6 is NOT a good idea.

A few weeks ago i upgraded from 0.4.4 to 0.4.6 and it has blown my mind, i love it, thank you so much! I love the new features, options, the extra speed and stability, my mods generate huge structures significantly faster. For me cubic-chunk Minetest is already far better than MC with it's claustraphobic 256m world height. 0.4.6 shows me Minetest is in good hands and is going in a good direction.

You know 0.4.7 is released, right?
