Maybe its possible that the game crash with build 0.4.13+
I 'll take care of me for it as soon as I find time.. At the moment I 'm busy with other Projects and have generally not much time
Maybe I was just lucky with my seed, but imho, water is a bit way too common in the surface. it would be cool if finding it took some more exploration (without making it outright impossible).
Its difficult, cause if you have bad luck, then you have only a smal landscape and this is very hard.
The underground is a bit boring.
yea.. this is a compromise.. cause if you have mutch Caves u will have mutch lags... cause of the liquids. You can chance the cavevalues via minetestconf.
Btw, requiring iron for ladders is quite harsh, I typically dig straight down when I want to explore the underground and use a lot of ladders, but with nails that's not really an option so mining is much more tedious in this game. Perhaps you could make it so you can receive a lot of nails (like at least 10?) from a single iron ingot. Then it will be 50 instead of 500 iron ingots to be able to reach level -500.
it should be 24 nails for a ironingot... dit you have became only 1 nail from a ironingot?
For a new user, or for someone who just downloads your game to try it out without reading the description much, it's very hard to know what do you have to do. Since the very basic rules that are needed from the start are unique to this game. I installed it the first time when I started playing minetest and was looking for games but I was doing this quickly and didn't fully understand what I had to do, so when I started playing it looked like it was just a plain wasteland with nothing to do other than just walk around and die of starvation. It was only later when I stumbled upon this thread again after I was more experienced that I gave it a second chance. It would be nice if you could add some sort of message for when a player joins for the first time or give them a book that can be read at any time with some short welcome, description and some explanation on the basics of how to start to obtain soil and trees, making them know that you have to actively turn this arid land into something fertile if you don't want to starve.
I do not know if I manage this... but I will try
Also: please delete the old version or hide it under a spoiler tag.. the first time I downloaded the game I was stupid enough to pick the older version (it was bigger in size and it was posted immediately after the first link... also I was mostly looking for github links so my eyes went straight to that section). You should definitely consider making a git repo, this way you don't have to keep old versions and I might even clone it and make perhaps pull request if I actually find something I could do.
ok i have deleted the old link.
I has any Problem with github to upload files... maybe i try it again sometimes.
something happen in my dirt,my dirt seems has broken mesh.
phu.... I have never seen it^.^ If this happens frequently or just at these two nodes?
Thank you for the hint. ;)
