Maybe you could mention what an "FTB-like" is?

Unfortunately it's not, but you can get latest dev version here: Windows (ZIP) / Ubuntu

If you have any issue I'm connected to irc.freenode.net on #skyfactory.

On archlinux you can use any AUR manager (yaourt, pacaur, etc..) to install latest version automatically. The package is named minetest-git.

That will teach me for not looking in the AUR hard enough. Compiling now, thanks again.

Yeah it's still the original interface. :/
I'll change it soon don't worry.

In the meantime use the default font or smaller character size for better readability

Cool. What do you refer to by "original interface"? Is there an original?

Btw, I looked over at rnd's skyblock type game and while yours is superior, rnd's use of formspec tabs (sfinv) was pretty neat. Perhaps some inspiration. =)

Yes, this formspec is from the skyblock mod and I almost didn't change it yet.

The code is here: https://github.com/Quent42340/quest_lib
Feel free to contribute if you have ideas for the interface. :)

Alright, cool. Let’s look into sfinv formspecs then. :)

Btw I got interested in your game after reading viewtopic.php?f=3&t=21711 . It would be interesting to provide a high quality skyblock experience for Minetest for reasons mentioned in that post…

I completely agree, but Minetest isn't ready yet, that's why I paused the development of this game to focus on the engine.

And to understand something as big as Minetest, sometimes it's good to try developing your own thing.

Ah, I see. What's missing in the MT engine for it to become viable? Do you have something similar to MineClone 2's MISSING_ENGINE_FEATURES? Also, it's a little depressing that nearly all projects come to the same conclusion and abandon development in the MT engine. Some things must be really missing or dysfunctional for that to be the case. :/

Oh wow, a whole new engine? And Lua scripting already added? Impressive!

No I don't have something like that, but the main points are:
  • Formspecs are terrible (I'll try to refactor the code after 5.0.0 though, to see if something can be easily improved)
  • Node-bound entities should definitely exist
  • The engine should provide a way to remove the horizon to give a full "in the void" experience

I'm using sol so Lua integration wasn't really an issue. :)
However the only thing you can do with it is register items/blocks/crafts, but nothing more yet.

Unarelith could you also work on a proper quest book for the game? I see that you've started on it already but was wondering if it would eventually be somewhat close to MCs quest book?

Yes, the goal is to make a similar interface, but currently formspecs are too limited.

Yeah... Someone was working on redoing the formspecs so they can be more expendable and it has gotten somewhere but not too far since he disappeared
