Development Test
A replacement for Minimal Development Test.


This is not a real game, it's only meant for developers to test out stuff!

As the name suggests, this is supposed to be a test environment for engine features, but much more exhaustive than Minimal Development Test. There are tons of test nodes, tools, items and other stuff to test.
It can also be useful to test your own mods with minimal interference.

I have already discovered numerous bugs with this thing. If you want to help with bug-hunting in Minetest, this should be the tool of your choice. :-)

The loading time is very fast.

It's a direct fork of Minimal Development Test. The goal is to replace the official Minimal Development Test eventually (see #9260).

  • Lots of test nodes, items and entities to test out engine features
  • Tools to manipulate nodes and entities (see mods/testtools/ for a manual)
  • Basic, minimal mapgen
  • Chest of Everything contains all items
  • Automated tests
  • Settings to turn on/off certain tests (based on the principle of “minimal interference”, most things start turned off)
  • Convenience commands
  • Settings to enable different tests
  • Complete overhaul of the messy codebase of Minimal Development Test
  • Principle of minimal interference: The added features try to interfere as little as possible with the default Minetest behavior. Some features need to be activated explicitly. This should make Development Test ideal to test dependency-free mods.
  • Many old/broken features, nodes and items of Minimal Development Test were removed

Download and infos

This should be used in Minetest 5.2.0-dev.
Mintest 5.1.0 will also work, but there will be (harmless) missing texture bugs.

License: Same as license of Minetest 5.1.0 (because it's a fork of Minimal Development Test).

Looks like you forgot the URL tag here. This ends up being just another repo link.
