Similarly, it takes 3 cubic meters of cobble and two small sticks to make a stone pickaxe. That sounds like an incredible amount of cobble!

You can freely put/use bare electrical wires without insulation in the water and your circuit will work as usual. And if player will stand or swim in that water, will not get any electric shock...

Here's the result: mesecons fans don't see the problem of having an electrical circuit in the water...

mesecon wires aren't electrical since you only need one wire (no positive or negative)

Nothing beats the good old phase-to-ground connection.

It's unrealistic because you see can the name of other people floating above their head.

Cut down jungle trees. Or mahogany. Or ebony. Use the wood for yourself or even sell it. It's perfectly legal.

Yea, you discovered another example why minetest will never be realistic (at least it won't be as long as the electrical current flow will needs only single cable)

We usually see other people's names floating at the height of their chest, as long as they carry identity cards pinned there.

In the default Minetest Game there are no other realms, but in other games it happens that the player goes from Earth to the Moon, Mars, or other object in the Solar System. How realistic it can be if you are able to build a rocket - which have smaller size than your room - capable of taking you into space by yourself alone, in your home, useing as a constructional material plain glass, wood, or cobblestone? Although there were wooden planes some time ago, but how do you want a wooden space object to survive the entry into Earth's or Mars' atmosphere? o_0

  • You can erect a huge building on the surface and dig out a basement underneath it afterwards with no cave-in risk, even if the basement is bigger than the actual building. In fact, you can add pillars inside the basement after you've dug it out, but you don't have to.
  • You can build towers, skyscrapers and what-not on sand with no problems.
  • You can build stuff on top of quicksand with no problems.
  • Nobody will mind if you run your own coal power plant with no filters. In fact, you don't even need a chimney.

In Minetest, you do something useful and not just playing video games all the day.
If you lack the reality, go on a trip or find a job.

One hit by a mk2-chainsaw can cut down whole forest.

Did anybody mention the fact that you can swim up a waterfall while carrying 3168 cubic metres of LEAD yet? (4059 m3 if you count the crafting grid) Or jump arround the sea like a dolphin on steroids while holding all that weight?
