Well, there is a mod that does something along those lines, I didn't make it, though I do like to use it. It's called Awards, and adds achievements to a game. That may not be exactly what you are looking for, though it sounds similar.

thanks for responding, yes i have been using both awards and xp redo . highscore might be in the pipeline as a creator really liked the idea . so will have to wait and see if its implemented .

The attitude of quite a lot of Minetesters and devs is just sad. "Minetest is not Minecraft. STFU and GTFO. Period. We don't give a damn what you 12-year-old creeperheads want."
Sorry!

Closets. I think there should be closets to change our package or there would be clothes. That would be pretty cool. Thanks. =)

I don't really know what do you mean but there are a lot of skins mods even with some cloesets.
My mod (a bit old) request: Better enchant. My second mod: Old Broken Castle nodes. Search for aab01 to find my mods!

I think a better question is what can Minetest do to make modders (and their users!) lives even easier. This will let the community flourish even faster by itself.

To that end, I wish MT had something like resource packs. You may argue it already does, but this what RPs do:

- let you package code and assets of any kind together (you made a texture pack for your mod, now it's with your mod)
- let the user enable the packs without any of them mutually excluding another (multiple texture packs)
- let the user set the load order

One cool thing in practice, this lets you have multiple texture packs. Did you find a nice TP that's missing some textures for a mod? Or perhaps the TP is old but someone made a similar themed one that fills the gaps? No problem, let the newer pack load first and the old one you like load later.

You could even go one step further and let the user disable assets of a resource pack!

This was officially rejected by two core devs.

"What's Minetest still missing over Minecraft?"

982 posts on 40 pages,

easiest solution seam to be:

play minecraft ...

or risk a copy-write issues after to much copy instead of own new ideas and get too famous. = then as concurrent they take the law force ...
Minetest has no future

I don't think it's the case. What are they gonna do? Sue everyone who makes a 3D armor? The 4 guys who made 4 different versions of bows? Everyone who forks? Also, let's remember Minecraft became the most sold game in history because of community contents, not because of vanilla. Minigames? A community idea. Factions? Same. Towny? Again.

Also: Minetest lacks polishing such as decent entities configuration. And more well-made mods

I honestly don't know if minecraft has them, but we need a bunch of scary clown mobs, weapons, and cars. And we need wings, and also the security mod. It is supposed to have lasers and stuff like that. (I know we already have some traps and locked containers in the game.

Also, where can I get pre-made worlds with buildings so I could download them, fill them up with lava, TNT them, flood them, and otherwise "ruin" them.

If you want a mod that doesn't yet exist, learn lua and make it yourself. (although proper laser beams might be impossible as of yet)
There's a 'maps' section on the user-contributed content panel for world downloads.

Proper laser beams are possible. Lighting is tricky though.

I have working lasers on my nightclub server. It was one of the first lighting effects I created for the dance floor. Although right now it is a bit funky due to texture translucency still being broken in the engine. Hopefully at some point, Minetest will support real dynamic lighting of scenes with variable fog for improved realism of laser beams and similar visual effects.

Clowns ? this is not a childrens tea party .
Anyway the goblins would tease them .
minestest does have its own horror mod and a variety of scary entities
Dmobs , horror . not so simple mobs
Also, where can I get pre-made worlds with buildings so I could download them, fill them up with lava, TNT them, flood them, and otherwise "ruin" them.
so you want to do some griefing like on minecrafts (2b2t)
cause some anarchy . rip and tear . a brutal test .
I just had my whole base griefed by somthing called the pumpking
there are some very big craters ,thing are on fire .I think it was thermonuclear devices . there is an advanced weapons pack with high powered rifles that i have loaded but have not yet tested as i am too busy just trying to stay alive .

There are less biomes in Minetest than Minecraft, even with mods, world generates differently, textures are different, dimensions dont work the same way in minetest...you get the idea...
I like mods that add dimensions and ores!

pretty sure they nicked the ideas from minetests xa environment game as that was out first .
same as with the brutal doom mod and the commercial offering of eternal.
All been done before somewhere and just tweaked then rewrapped with corperate eye candy .
