Mojang decides what to include into Minecraft, and for some reasons all players are excited about the new features merged. Minetest is a pre-alpha game and can keep up to Minecraft's features without problems, but no one recognizes it. As someone already mentioned, Minetest is just lacking marketing.
Instead Minetest is just more powerful, because you can decide yourself what you want and what not. Unfortunately, that's not what most players want. Most players want a predefined set of features like Minecraft has.
What we should do:
- Include a set of feature-rich subgames into the game
- on the website, point out the engine character of Minetest some more.
(more like "Carbone is a game running in the Minetest engine" than "Minetest has a Carbone subgame")
Then users can concentrate on tracking the development status of subgames instead of the engine.
Just BTW: Tell people using the "clone" argument that Minecraft is a clone of Infiniminer.
In really IMHO i think Minetest don't sends MC to the F*** because it's free, it doesn't have big publicy everywhere saying lies about that sh** of game!
Minetest is for who are free, for who don't like to play always the same sh** and live in a community of trolls and rat kids.
MC wasn't so famous, M$ buy that crap and become famous, the 99.9% of MC players are kids, that says crap and don't know what is "education" apparently
his fathers only left him in a PC all the day, if at least they say them : "With the other people, that be online or in real life you should be educated, that will do all the people love you, and they help when you need it!" But apparently they only are in his job, without know that exists something that is a "son" and they should teach him, how is the life, what you should do, what you shouldn't you and How be with the other people!
I miss that days, that the "fathers" were "fathers" if we see normally the people of before were very kind and servicial.
But well a PC is good, but if you left your son be there all day, and don't teach him, at least play sports sometimes, the PC is good and is very functional, but you should "socialize" with other people , what is "primitive" these days!
That RAT kids (I say rats because in south america rat means: Robber, stupid, a person that is very bad with others, in conclusion that he always do what he wants and that is a very bad person (apart that is an animal, It's obvious!)) Only play MC because they see a Famous youtuber, that only teaches him how not be kind, say bad words and that things! Playing MC that becomes famous and stupidly awesome for everyone, and if you don't know what's that, or if you don't like it You are the mostest weird person in all the world, inclusively if is the mostest stupid game ever, the famous youtubers, don't play Minetest only because isn't so famous and that isn't the crappy and sh** type content everyone likes to see, Minetest is a game for everyone (Vanilla game, some mods can make it inclusively +18) and for the kids of today, if don't have blood, there are people saying bad words, there isn't any sex content, and if don't have the best graphics, is the mostest primitive and boring game of all the history! (IMHO something very stupid, if the kids of today played zelda or SMB, surely 99.9% says: "ohhh, this is so hard and stupid, i don't like it, is very boring and i don't like i choose GTA5!. (For who doesn't know what's that maybe because he is in his job or simply doesn't take too much care to that things! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_V
Is the mostest stupid and innapropiated game for kids)
Sorry for my coarse language, only makes me feel so angry this situation with MC, and that's the true about MC his players are only kids that doesn't know at least what is Java and they think they are hardcore, and the mostest smart person in the world! (And i don't say geek, because 85.5% of them, i think don't know what is geek!)
MC is famous only because his excesive publicy!
Everyone here knows that here, If Minetest be a Closed-Source Game, surely sends to the F*** to MC (I pray everyday for Minetest always be Open-Source Nobody wants another MC here!)
Minetest haves more possibilities to triumph than MC, simply for the people that makes games, that codes, Minetest is a Oasis of Open Source between MC dessert of closed source!
I showed Minetest to a friend that's like me, program and code makes a perfect day, only you, your computer, and a mug of coffee (In really the bugs, sometimes ruin it, but when you fix it, it's a happiness) And he see it, A MC game-like and it's open source, he say me: "Holy cow, this is perfect, thanks bro for show it to me" now he plays it, and he makes his mods!
That shows that Minetest is for Free people, that likes a game...
...When you can modify everything!
Normal people always says: "Minetest is a Clone/Cheaper version of MC" inclusively my cousin said that to me!
But if you see it very good, in really is very different to MC, After all is like Minetest And MC where brothers , "very samely" when you see him normally, but if you see good, you realize that they aren't so same, one (MC) only wants the $ and he always have better graphics, but his community, who plays it, always are bad and troll people!
Instead Minetest is the other that wants to be free, don't matter what will happen' he only wants to show everyone, that be a free game, without ads , that being a not lucrative game don't means that is a bad game, instead that means that when you need help, someone will give it to you!
That you can modify the game as you want, no limits, you can share it, to who you want without fear of being accused of piracy!
That is a FREE game, and nobody can't say that isn't true, Minetest shows you that what matter isn't the money, is how you are!
(Yes a life reflection!.... -_- )
And if you have a bug, if you know you can fix it by yourself!
Instead of waiting someone if a forum answers you!
And i think, the same about website, we should show the subgames more!
Anyways , the engine is the important thing to geeks and developers!
BTW: I think Minetest should have better graphics, and have less lag!
But that lag compared to MC lag, i prefire Minetest a lot!
Java always is very slow and laggy!
