hello people, new here, looking for some quick tips.

by The_Jack_Of_Blades » Mon Oct 01, 2018 19:15

I am new to minetest and had a few questions i have been unable to figure out.

1. how do i create a world with a TOTALLY FLAT plane made out of grass or perhaps snow? no trees, no bushes, no flowers. just flat grass or snow as far as the eye can see. I have read a lot about mg_flags=flat or something to that effect but it doesnt seen to work. keep getting "relatively" flat lands but with random caves and trees here and there.

2. how do i pause and set the time of day? ive tried some console commands but it says i dont have server privledge or something. even though i am in creative mode on just a local machine

3. what is the command to add an item to my inventory. wood for example. if i am on a flat grass plane with nothing i suppose i will have to add items through the command line.

4. i have been able to give myself the commands to move fast and fly etc, but sometimes it says i am not allowed. seems sort of random.

if you could tell me how to do these things, and perhaps give example commands that would be fantastic. or if you are a true wizard you could perhaps point me in the direction of a pre made map i could download that already has these settings and features in place.

I basically want to build stuff in minetest. I am getting into making home made wood working stuff, furniture etc. and i couldnt seem to find any good architectural apps that allow for first person viewing from all angles. I figured I could treat each block as one inch and construct giant models of what i am building to get general ideas about the angles of the finished product as well as seeing how i should go about constructing it. using different board types and different types of wood as differnt blocks etc.

anyways. thanks for any hel you are able to give. like i said ive been searching for a bit and what i have been able to find doesnt seem to be working, or download links are long dead.

take care!

Various ways to get lands flat were recently discussed here, sounds like you should skip the flatgen answer until having read the other answers tho.

The command you're looking for to grant privileges in a local game is /grantme
Code: Select all
/grantme settime
/grantme give
/grantme fast
/grantme fly
/grantme teleport

then
Code: Select all
/giveme default:wood 99
/time 6000
etc.

Perhaps ask in a woodworking forum what people recommend?

Isn't more easy to just enable creative mode? There you have all the blocks you want without commands ;-)

Or:
Code: Select all
/grantme all

(much faster)

This will give you the 'server' priv, which will then let you do something like
Code: Select all
/set time_speed 0
/time 12000

This will set the time speed to 0 (for all worlds - it's a minetest.conf setting!)
and then set the time to 12000 (noon).
See this for a list of times.

The solution to all of your problems is by reading:

https://wiki.minetest.net/Server_commands
https://wiki.minetest.net/Privileges
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=20875

2. how do i pause

You pause by pressing Esc. But this only works in singleplayer. In online multiplayer, it's impossible to pause. If you hit Esc, you just see the Esc menu, but the game is not paused because it would be weird if anyone could just pause a multiplayer game at will.
