Any mods?

by _Quantum_ » Post

hey i was just wondering if anyone could possible make a mod for minetest? possibly one that adds more MC items to the game or maybe others?
of course we don't want to make minetest a minecraft copy... it would just be nice if we had some mods.

I'm sorry but mod =/= fork.

A fork is a new work derivated from another one. It will not necessary do the same thing.
E.g: Minetest-delta is a fork of Minetest. It's almost the same game but with new stuff under development. These things may not be added on Minetest.

A mod is just an add-on for the game. For now, Minetest doesn't support mods so you must create a fork from it to add stuff and such.

hijera: I know celeron55 added lua scripts support a long time ago to make mods but I think he removed this feature.
Not here for a while due to some troubles between my graphic card and Minetest.

Minecraft is special because it has been made in Java, which allows very easy replacing of parts of the code, without any work towards supporting it by the original developer.

C++, on the other hand, requires careful planning and much work to allow similar things. Everything has downsides.
