Were rivers removed?

by MHL » Post

I was flying around in a newly generated world (in Minetest Game) for about an hour and could find any rivers, were they removed?
Minetest Version 4.17.1

check your settings for mgV7. Rivers have not been removed, you may have simply changed a setting and did not realize or forgot

Go in advanced settings at Server/Singleplayer → Mapgen → Advanced → Mapgen v7 → Mapgen v7 specific flags and add the tag ridges

This can also be done in the minetest.conf file, where settings are stored, just change the value of mgv7_spflags the same way.
Just realize how bored we would be if the world was perfect.

I meant actual rivers (the ones containing river water) not these "canyons" with water

Hate to break it to ya, those are the only rivers you get :)

River water ultimately serves no purpose at this point in time, unless it is used in the Valleys mapgen, but I dont think it is [edit]: apparently you want to use the Valleys mapgen. The more you know :)

Hey, you. You're finally awake.
You were trying to view their profile, right? Found the rest of their signature, same as us, and that guest over there.

You have to use the Valleys mapgen to have rivers with river water. Mapgen v7 only has the huge flat rivers.

What v-rob wrote. Mgv7 has never had sloping rivers with "default:river_water".
