Black World

by Xubux » Post

Hi!

So i've had minetest for a while and I enjoy it a lot. Recently, I loaded up my favorite world and started playing in it. A couple minutes in the entire screen (within the game) went grey/black and I couldn't see a thing! I could see my pickaxe and toolbar and health. I can even open my inventory, but I can see anything! (I attached a picture)

I am running Linux Mint and minetest 0.4.12 if that helps.

Thanks in advance!

You are at -2230. check if you can dig and place a torch first.
This usually happends on servers. On servers you can solve for some time if you delete "cache" folder that is on your minetest directory.

Did you get any errors in the debug file?
I got this one today with the same effects you describe:
"ERROR[ServerThread]: ERROR: An unhandled exception occurred: createSector(): pos. over limit"

It happened when I teleported a ridiculous distance away, trying to find oceans;
And everything went blackish, so teleported back to spawn and no change.
So I restarted the game and everything was still black.

I had forgotten about testing the new map_generation_limit setting in the minetest.config.
I deleted the setting and restarted and everything was back to normal.

I am not really sure if this actually solved the problem
or if it even has anything to do with it all.

Looks like you are outside the playing area ( -214k on x value ).

Yeah, Marshall is right, I didn't noticed, I tought it was -21k not 214k... well, do /grant teleport
and then do /teleport 0,0,0 or any other coordinate you have.
