What does this do different than just setting the appropriate value in the minetest.conf for the enable_build_where_you_stand option?
I record Minetest videos, Mod reviews, Modding tutorials, and Lets plays.
Check out my website, and brand new Minetest Modding Course

The mod name is actually a reference to that setting, because what it does is quite similar to disabling it!

The differences are:

1. Also takes other players into consideration (they vs. you). Currently ignores entities but I might add this in future versions.
2. Is serverside. Originally this was written to counter lightning-fast towering ("pillaring") on PvP servers, which takes advantage of enable_build_where_you_stand. Without this, towering requires you to actually jump, and becomes way slower.
