How can I remove all trees from a world

by theblob » Post

I need to remove all of the trees (along with saplings, leaves, and apples) from a world for... uh... reasons. Does anyone know how I could do this? A seed that generates no trees is also acceptable. Thank you for your help!

Open minetest.conf, located in your Minetest root directory, or the folder where the mods, worlds, and bin folder are.

Add this line to it. Remember! Minetest MUST be closed before you open this, else your changes will not be saved.

Code: Select all

mg_flags = notrees
And generate a new world.


See this:

https://github.com/minetest/minetest/bl ... nf.example

for more *secret* options for your minetest game =)


Also, welcome to the Minetest Forums ^.^

7:42 PM - Bauglio: I think if you go to staples you could steal firmware from a fax machine that would run better than win10 does on any platform
7:42 PM - Bauglio: so fudge the stable build
7:43 PM - Bauglio: get the staple build

It sais:
# To explicitly turn off a flag, prepend "no" to the beginning, e.g. nolight.
And "trees" is mentioned, so notrees disables all trees.

Is it also posible to remove all plants and flatten the terrain completely without water or biomes?
I tried it with:
mg_flags=notrees, flat
but this dosn't work 100%.

maybe starting with "singlenode" set as mapgen and then insertng a large flat sheet of dirt-with-grass nodes with the WorldEditor is what you want. That would elimate any automatic mapgeneration and give you full control - and the complete workload of landscaping.

As "flatworld" is often asked for, maybe we should collect all the sollutions posted so far. As there seem to be various settings for different official/semiofficial mapgens and mod mapgens as well as mods for "flattening" limited areas and some people have posted flat maps of various kinds to the forums.

... in other words: search the forums, there are many sollutions out there.

What kind of attribute is "flat" ? Does it mean everything is removed when we apply it ?

It makes a completely level world where there are no elevations or lakes

the flag "flat" makes the ground flat, no hills no mountains but still biomes as in blotches of sand in stretches of grass. Also the underground generation is normal with caves and ores. As such you may have holes in your flat surface, some with water.

For endles plains of a single type use:

Superflat by srifqi or
flatgen by krock

"flatgen" was faster the last time I tried but "superflat" has more options.

in both you can define of what nodes the world should be made sorting it in absolutely flat layers. "flatgen" has three while "superflat" allows to compose a layer structure of as many layers as you wish and also allows to decorate the surface with plants to your liking. Consider though that in "flatgen" you can allow normal mapgen under a given depth.

or maybe play with the possabilities of skyplatform by Sokomine

2014 guy,
Yes. Use the lua voxel manipulator to remove all tree nodes, then recalculate lighting and write the luavoxelmanip to the world.

Would several aliases along the lines of:

Code: Select all

minetest.register_alias("default:tree", "air")
work? Or would that also cause lighting issues?

Just set them on fire. Fast, easy, pleasant. Btw has perhaps anyone comitted a napalm mod already?

That's ok. You don't need to feel guilty. Trees are beautiful when they burn.

Using aliases is a bad way.
If you want to create a new world where only trees are removed, use a mod to clear all registered decorations then re-register them without the trees.
(non mgv6 mapgens only).
