Or anything, for that matter. Sam is a floating head from his perspective. Or maybe even just floating eyes... floating eyes and his right hand... o-o

you can hold 65535 cubic meters of diamond in your hand and still be able to sprint across the world as if you had wings on your feet.

  • You can carry lava in steel buckets.
  • You can forge stone tools back into shape on an anvil.
  • Ditto diamond tools.
  • In fact, pickaxe blades made of solid diamond.
  • You can cut down things that are three metres away from you with hand-held tools. (That's ten feet for those used to Imperial units.)
  • The sun is a cube.
  • You can carry entire trains in your pockets.
  • Snow-covered landscapes border on a searing hot and arid desert.
  • The only buildings far and wide are abandoned brick bunkers. Dozens upon dozens of them.
  • Tunnel-boring machines that also lay railway tracks as they go.
  • Gravity only works on certain creatures, liquids, sand (not even always) and gravel, but not on rock, dirt or tree trunks.
  • Palm trees, cotton and oranges can grow in the tundra.
  • You can carry milk (fresh from the cow), fruit and raw meat around with you or keep it in storage as long as you want. Expiry dates, what's that?
  • Beaches are mostly quicksand.
  • You can run around Middle Earth in your undies, and nobody cares.

Well, to me the differences between MT (or other voxel sandboxes) and real life are very obvious and, even though it may look as a trite, worth enumerating:

- There's neither smog nor smoke, even when you set on fire the whole world;
- The weather in the default game is always fine;
- Albeit short, the daytime is easily extendable thanks to the control over time;
- The water in Minetest rivers, lakes and seas is clear and clean;
- There're no piles of rubbish in the Minetest forests, even there's no mod that introduces such filthy features (except those which feature radioactivity);
- The socialisation to the Minetest community's rules does not require installing mods introducing zombies and other aggresive NPCs;
- There's no smog. Oh, I've probably mentioned it already.

;)

You constantly look for opportunities to do *hard* labor under *insane* working conditions even though food is abundant, weather is a non issue, and money can't get you anything that wouldn't be easier to just pick up off the ground or make yourself.

- there are cars. These cars have engines. Interestingly, you never need to fill up gasoline, you can drive the car forever.
- the cars can even jump up 1m!
- you can swim up a waterfall
- a boat can swim up a waterfall
- sometimes rivers can flow uphill (at least the flow animation goes the right way)
- a 1x1m pond of water can provide a field of 48m^2 with water and it never dries out
Lua is great!

Well, this is realistic by the way. Some only needs less than 10 punches to kill a human.

Real-life diamond tools would shatter into thousands of pieces at first use.
