Gameplay videos:
Package delivery: https://youtu.be/vcPsFwdYURs
Weapon and loot: https://youtu.be/ip6ibzX_Zv0
Overview (no sound, outdated): https://youtu.be/vlFc7WJjI7o

Bad news first:
I'm using development packages, so you cannot play this game using compiled binaries from http://www.minetest.net/. You need to wait for 0.4.15 to be released.
OR if you are Arch Linux or Ubuntu user you can use daily builds from those places:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mine ... t-leveldb/
https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdev ... /+packages
OR you can build fresh version of Minetest by yourself. Check instructions from this place (scroll down):
https://github.com/minetest/minetest/
Although there is pull request, which is used to save your CPU performance and provide necessary API functions:
# 4035 (https://github.com/minetest/minetest/pull/4035)
It is not absolutely necessary.

How to play (wiki):

Download game from this place:

From your gameplay video, this subgame looks amazing, I'm waiting for those PR to be merged.

P.S. Your GitHub repo is full of backup files (files with ~ on the end of filename -- are you a Linux user?). You can delete it and create a file called .gitignore in the root of your repo and add this line to ignore those files:
Code: Select all
*~

Yep, Ubuntu 15.10. I know about .gitignore, i just realise that i forgot about it after uploading source.

paramat, you are one of a developers. Could you add "one approval" mark on related pull requests?

Here is new video:
https://youtu.be/ip6ibzX_Zv0
In version 0.003 i add a "microfactories". Several nodes placed side by side to each others form a net, where they can exchange electric power and items. Each stage of processing raw materials give profit about 10 Cr. per minute. If you use product of one microfactory as source material in another, total profit is increased.
Also added Gauss MG - new type of weapon, which are using ammo to shoot.

I discover and decide to use schematics instead of procedure-generated structures for enemy mothership and human base.
Here is a new look of human base:

Here is a look of enemy mothership:

As well due to disappointment over standard mob spawn I decide to pregenerate mobs as moving vectors. A new device, radar, allow players to see approximate position of random 8 enemy ships in range.

Texts? Assuming you asking how I made textures, I used two photos:
1. 360-degree panorama view of the Milky Way.

2. Saturn close-up.

And combined them using GIMP image editor.

Thank you. Yet, what about approvals on related pull requests?

Yes sorry we are understaffed, on these PRs i might not review as it's code i'm not good with.
The bug of course should be fixed. #4035 seems fairly useful so i may support the concept.

Ah, sorry. I thought that you shorten word "textures" by a weird way.
Check a line 679 in player.lua
https://github.com/Foghrye4/minetest_sa ... r.lua#L679
And check a line 901 in global_functions_and_variables.lua
https://github.com/Foghrye4/minetest_sa ... s.lua#L901

Those marks is a HUD text and pictures, which is updated from a server side, therefore they react with lag whenever player rotate camera. Calculating on screen coordinates of objects in 3d is a simple vector math.

Is there is some conditions to became a part of your staff, like a programming degree? Or unless you sacrifice a certain amount of your time, you will be "fired"?
May I became a part of a "staff"?

Glad to read this.

No conditions of qualification or hours.
It usually takes a while for a contributor to become 'known' and trusted, like 6 months to 2 years depending on how many pull requests you make and how active you are. Then at some point a core dev might suggest inviting you to become a core dev and will discuss this with other core devs. So essentially you wait until invited.
Until then you can help out by submitting PRs, reviewing and testing other PRs.

Zeno and Nerzhul be praised (especially Zeno), pull request #4128 was merged into Minetest master branch and I decide to design API "gag", so you can play in Minetest Saturn even without API.
If someone ask a single question about "how to play", I will start a wiki page about game.

You are welcomed to ask more specific questions and suggest any ideas to improve game.
And I will be grateful, if you find and post any bugs here.
