I found the term "noise" in several texts in minetest.
Can someone explain to me in detail what is it? I'm trying to translate some sentences and it is difficult to understand what the word means at all times. I believe that this does not refer to sounds.
Examples:
Noise parameters for biome API temperature, humidity and biome blend.
Mapgen flat cave1 noise parameters.
Mapgen flat filler depth noise parameters.

This is the wrong topic, please ask questions in the modding question thread.

I tried the instructions to create a Minetest server on Linux, they didn't work. How do I do it?

I've added the question “When will the next version of Minetest / Minetest Game be released?” (with answer) to the FAQ.

If you use firefox, you can use greasemonkey.

Did it change the forum database where nickname saved or is this a joke? Maybe forum administrator can change my nickname if he is not busy?

Greasemonkey (on Wkipedia) is a Firefox addon

Yesterday I connected to the server again and the teleporter did not work and did not keep coordinates of the other site and now I do not know where it is .... and I need to find it I would appreciate your help. Thanks

Have you tried asking for help from the server moderators?

The server saves activity logs (most of the time) in the debug file (debug.txt). You should contact the server owner to ask for the coordinates or correction of the error with the teleporter.

Some servers have an HTTP page for contact. To find this page, go to the list of public servers and click on the name of the server.

in terminal try
sudo chmod 777 ~/.minetest/mods

if that's the right dir. You should then be able to move files to that directory as non root

You should put your mods in the .minetest/mods dir (the .minetest dir is a hidden dir inside the home dir).
I must remember that the mods folder does not exist initially, so you should create it.

If the .minetest dir does not exist (you can use the ll command on the terminal to check) open the minetest at least once.

go to the mods directory in file manager if it has a address bar then copy/paste that location in the terminal so it's like
sudo chmod 777 (what you pasted)
