Using Ubuntu 14.04 and minetest-server installed from the official repositories, I can succesfully start a server using
Code: Select all
I also tried some mods (Technic and requirements, Weather, and Carts), but did not get them to run succesfully either. The wiki tells me to place them in "$HOME/.minetest/mods", however they do not load from there. They do load if I place them in "$HOME/.minetest/worlds/world/worldmods/" (so on a per world basis, which is prefferable I guess), but that means it won't load them the first time the world is created, so it won't generate ores that are added.
So TL;DR: How do I change the default gameid, and worldname when running the server? And how do I load mods when the server runs the first time?
Also, the Technic mod plus it's dependencies crash, but I guess that is for a different thread.
Also, after installing Minetest from the official Ubuntu repo's, it did not create any config files for me, at all. "$HOME/.minetest" was only created after running the server once, but I could also not find an example config file in "/var/" or in "/etc/": I had to take it from the Github repository.
EDIT: So I'm now able to succesfully load mods from "$HOME/.minetest/mods" by modifying world.mt. However, because this file gets created after generating the world, I'm still afraid ores added by mods will not be generated.
