make becoming a local map a server

by Baaaz » Post

// Alert french guy writing english //

Hello, i'm new to Minestest, i really enjoy creating maps in creative mode.
In fact it really makes me crazy, so i want to do something with it (even a co-construction, or something like a full mini game ...)
I'm currently working on one, and i would like other people could help me building it.
How can i share it ?
I didn't set up my map as a server, can i change this after building it ?


Thx

Yes, you can run the map as server either by ticking the "host server" checkbox starting the client as server mode providing the world. See the wiki for details.

Edit: The Wiki seems to be outdated in some places. You basically run minetest --server --world ... to run the client in server mode.

Make sure the port is forwarded to your computer in the router so people from external sources can connect. For LAN usually no further configuration is necessary.


For ad-hoc playing the easiest solution is the checkbox in the client. In this case The server runs as long as your client runs

Exactly that. There is no deeper meaning.

When you start the client there is a checkbox left of the world list saying something along "host server".
