There is nothing like single player mode... Every minetest game also launches a server so that people can join if they have your ip and know the port that is forwarded to your computer. If you dont want them to join, you just have to set another port or something like that.

well there could be a simple code to make it single player and only allow your local server to join ...like have a single player game or something? which it could be (i have no idea what the terms are) but.. like

--when the single player button the iflocal command is true

iflocal = bool(depen)

--where depen is set by localserver equaling 1 for yes or 0 for no

iflocal = maxplayers = 1

or something like that

basically the single player activates the iflocal command which tells it there can only be 1 player from the local game

To avoid other people join your own server, you can add a default password. This password will be needed by new players if they want to connect. Check the server section in your minetest.conf (you just need to add

You can also set the player limit to 1 in minetest.conf. :)

Using last solution (1-player limit) there most likely will be a small gap (some microseconds) where another player may join your server before you join it ;-).

Honestly does anyone need a single player minetest? Most people are behind (nat)firewalls and if not I'd strongly suggest adding a least a firewall. But thats another thing.

Well have you seen many of the more or less 20,000 downloaders playing on the multiplayer servers?

Sorry i forgot to pronounce the "need" ;-)
I self haven't been to one of the multiplayer servers by now too ;-). But as I'm behind a nat firewall noone would ever accidentaly enter my server. Wouldn't be much fun either it's restarted/crashed nearly every 5min while developing mods ;-)

Even better: set limit to 1 and set default rights to nothing. Players joining will not be able to speak and build... and ban them as soon as they join :)

as Hackeridze always does to me ... /facepalm ...the thing is..you SHOULDN'T! SHOULD NOT! have to configure your pc to block incoming users for the "single" player section of the game..it should be just SINGLE player..no-one else able to even join your game at all

It was because you had remobo on! otherwise I have to go through hurdles to let my friend across the road connect to my local server without it!
