If it's Lua side only - could you write a pull request for it? :)

Trust me, I spent all my day on it... for a crappy result with the formspecs. Otherwise I would not post a new topic and push a PR instead. So I prefer let that to more talentuous people ;)

That formspec is from Freeminer, for those that are curious.

I don't really like it, it doesn't fit with the current Minetest menu style, (that I love) ¿Maybe something more minimalistic?

Looks nice but the grey style should be kept, if this gets added.

Kind of a quick design I made. Bold effect is for hovered buttons, btw.
Clicking singleplayer could open a panel that would be a world select/create screen, multiplayer would show the list, etc. Settings would be for game settings and texture packs, etc.
The background (in theory) could be changed by texture packs, the blur effect could be done via shaders or something.

Minetest, not Minetest-c55

I agree. The menu isn't very well organized, and imo it doesn't look very good either.

I love the examples that have come up on this thread! They look really good!

I like the image flags idea. I think more servers should be visible on the list at once (higher window). When a server is full, its player count could be written in orange, grey if empty.

Why not have it where in the settings to make it where the player can determine all of this. Examples: Max Servers Visible on List = 1-25, and for the menu let the player pick the style they like best??? I think give the players the freedom to choose what their game looks like would be quite interesting.

I imagine a fully themeable GUI (through texture packs).

I don’t know what Freeminer did, but I think of SVG images (better scaling) for everything visible in the menu … and a way to freely position and scaling them on a percent basis (maximum flexibility when scaling) – But having PNGs for everything would be fine, too :)

Relevant idea, but not possible with the formspecs. Scaling them is a pain.

I'm working on a dropdown list for alternating dark or light themes, in the settings tab. But not sure to succeed...

PR on GitHub for this please. (Style 1)
This looks much better than the current.

EDIT: Okay. The bg_tab_*.png images are not optimal because the tabs can have other dimensions in other languages.
