DAMN! I collect 148 fly-agarics in order to shove them in furnace as fuel to destroy that damn mushrooms! Know what? They don't burn as fuel or as smelting material.

You may consider it as a tip :-)

That only works for singleplayer, and your own server.
A normal player on a server cannot use Minetestmapper.

Indeed, just put in
Code: Select all
gameid = minetest
backend = sqlite3

But even an empty file seems to work.

Thanks for the tip !

2 very basic tips
tip 1
learn to be organised don't just group random stuff in chests
tip 2
check your inventory before you craft
I have wasted 15 mins looking for a Viola because
I didn't check that I already had 4 in my flora chests

I believe if you harvest crops with a diamond sword, you get more of that plant and its seeds as opposed to harvesting by hand. I'm pretty sure this works all the time, but im kinda silly at times.
For those of you who don't know me, which is practically everyone, I have played MT for 3 years, just haven't been involved on forums. Later. Good tips btw, new players should be directed here.
K. I'm bored with signatures.

I exploded more than 150 thousands of TNT at once.
MINETEST HUNG. I just wanted to see Big Bang.

Tip: do not explode 150 thousands of TNT at once.

If you are standing at the edge of the cliff with [Shift] button pressed (in order not to fall down), do not open inventory. You will fall down.

Not anymore. The new sneaking fixes (will be available on 0.4.16) make the player be always "standing" on the node, so no matter what happens you will be safe.

More tips! Not just for Minetest Game.

Minetest in general:
  • Nerdpoling: Build a block on your feet, then jump. Repeat forever to quickly reach new heights. Probably the most-known trick ever. :D
  • If you're facing a deep black abyss and want to know (roughly) how deep it is, place a falling block (like sand) and wait for a sound. If you don't hear anything, the abyss is probably deadly
  • If you're at the ceiling of a giant cave with a bottomless pit and have to go deeper, place falling blocks again and again so they fall into the abyss and form a tower. When the tower becomes high enough, just walk on this tower and mine your way down
  • Shift-click to quickly transfer items between inventories. OK, this is not really a tip, but is often missed by newbies
  • Use the chat command “/help all” when joining a new server. You will be surprised by what new features you might reveal

Minetest Game:
  • Carry enough food with you to quickly heal you in case of emergency
  • If you want to protect an area in stock Minetest Game without any mods, or just like to troll the hell out of other players, surround the area with multiple layers of locked chests. It works because other players can't dig your locked chests. Yes, I know, it's really crazy! :D
  • Place signs on chests to create labelled chests
  • Build a large dirt floor underground, then place a mushroom on the dirt, then remove all light sources to start your underground mushroom farming empire

Pro-tip: Always carry a bucket of water with you. If you're in such a situation place the water, wait for 2-3 seconds and take the water back with the bucket. Then jump on the falling pile of water and press space for swimming up so you won't fall down. Tadaaaa, your a-hoc one person one-time use unidirectional water elevator :)
