(Just for fun) Why Minetest Game will never be realistic

by Wuzzy » Thu Aug 11, 2016 18:26

Hi, this is just a fun thread and not meant serious or to bash anything. Just for fun. ;-)

Minetest Game will never be realistic. Here are some simple reasons:

- Put a coal lump on a stick. Congrats! You just crafted a torch which burns.
- All it takes to stop water from flowing into your house are some torches
- Chests are made of wood but never burn
- Putting locks on things (locked chest, steel door, etc.) makes them harder than diamond when you don't own them. Even explosions can't harm them!
- Put your hand into fire to put it out
- Punch dirt to dig
- Punch gravel to dig
- Punch trees to get wood—WHAT KIND OF DARK MAGIC IS THIS?!
- 20 fist punches kill a human
- You can carry up to 3168 blocks of cobblestone. Your backpack must be HUGE!
- You can create new water by placing water in a clever way
- Everything is cuboid or flat
- You can swim forever and over huge oceans. Swimming is easy as pie.
- You may be at the brink at death, but just eat 10 apples and you are in perfect shape again
- Every human in the world is male and looks like a woodcutter
- Humans randomly appear and disappear. They call it “joining” and “disconnecting”

Please post your own reasons. :D

With backpacks and gold blocks you can carry a few 100000 tons of material
You can swim up a waterfall

But that is called gameplay

+1 Towards the "Punch Tree"

But I plan try create as much of a Realistic minetest yet. So lets hope it possible do some these things going discussion here.

  • You, can be reborn infinity times.
  • You, can survive on top a high attitude without a oxygen mask.
  • You, can be near lava without getting hot. (or cold in snow areas).
  • You can go through blocks—WHAT SORCERY IS THIS!
  • You, can carry a bucket of lava without protection.
  • Time is short.*
  • There is no aging!

*By default my Realistic Test subgame Time speed will be a full 24hrs.
I'm a Transgender no shame about it.
I prefer to be considered as a "Girl/Lady/Miss/Madam/Female" for now on.

when you break glass it repairs itself.
you can safely break glass with your hands.
put a few diamonds on 2 sticks and you can make the strongest tool.
fell a tree and it floats midair.

and: punch a bunch of leaves to create a new grown tree sapling.

○You never die, you justly respawn!
○You can do a big block of diamond with justly putting very tiny 9 pieces together
○You can do tools without cutting or melting the thing to the shape of the tool, you justly put that iron, mese, etc... and sticks and you do a very perfect tool!

This will seem a little critical.
  • You can put a torch access on the seabed. (And use it to breathe).
  • You can fall from any height and survive long as it is in the correct position (sneak)
  • Your world is finite (36000³)
  • You can rummage their ancestors bones in search of items.
  • You can not run.
  • Wheat, cotton and papyrus does not grow if you are not watching.
  • Apples appear in a tree without a name.
  • Two bodies can occupy the same space simultaneously.

you can only use your right arm :/

a single piece of coal or wood has enough fire power to smelt a rock.

Fall from the roof of a 10 story building? No problems! Just eat some apples afterwards and you'll be in top condition.

Guess apples DO keep the doctor away :^)

MTG really lacks of realistic behaviour in many ways, here also some core-specific issues:

  • The default terrain is unrealistic - no 1500m mountains or deep sea trenchs
  • You can fly - even without wings
  • You can fly through solid material
  • It is possible to teleport without a Heisenberg compensator
  • No monsters - seriously? Ever looked under your bed? They exist.
  • You can watch yourself punching a tree by hand
  • You can see your face without a mirror
  • Have you ever seen an infinite water source IRL? I haven't seen one yet
  • You can hold a steel bucket filled with lava by hand - what a luck you don't feel pain!
  • You don't feel pain

I was thinking of making a disease/genetic engineering mod similar to /tg/station13's virology, except not centered as heavily around RNG mechanics.
